6. And Interventionist?
Really? His efforts have almost all been aimed at giving help to businesses and letting them decide whether or not to hire. He hasn't intervened directly to create jobs anywhere There are no direct job programs. He hasn't made job creation a necessary condition of any program or assistance.

The business leaders in positions to publicly make those smears and be heard like high unemployment. They don't want Obama to start issuing order and regulations and then decide that they are effective, or that he likes doing it, so this is preemptive smearing.

Fuck this. We need some intervention. We need some direct job creation. We need job programs, and mandates that if you take government money you damned well better be able to show that you spent that money on new payroll in the US.
