I see the clock and all i see is way to much spending going on. our debt has more than doubled since 2004. Our government has a spending problem.

question!

where are the republican candidates and the president investing their money?

is it in american companies? is it in start up funds? it better not be off shore nor in municipales that are funded with tax dollars.

I don't know where you get your facts, but that's simply not true.

Since the start of 2007, both the private sector and the government sector have lost in employment (4.40% decline in the private sector and 0.58% decline in total government). Breaking it down further, local governments shrank by 1.40% and state governments shrank by 0.33%. Meanwhile, the federal government grew by 3.22%. However, this growth was not enough to offset the losses in the state and local governments.

Since Obama took office in January of 2009 the private sector has shrank by 0.95% while the government sector shrank by 2.70% (3.48% decline in local, 2.44% decline in state, and 0.90% growth in federal).

Since what looks to be the trough of the labor situation at the end of December in 2010, the private sector has grown by 2.94% while the government sector has declined by 2.29% (local lost 2.79%, state lost 1.23% and federal lost 1.71%).

I even put it in a simple to read table format for you.

Thanks for the info. Interesting read.
I was actually looking at the federal government rate of growth. Interesting numbers.

I'm not arguing that point because I have no data telling me to what extent that is or isn't true. Without data it's all just opinion and not worth debating.

I guess I'm not smart enough to follow the logic that, if there is a leftward bias in "the media", and if the SOTU television coverage was biased to the left, then "the media" must have been responsible for the television coverage. It would seem possible to me that there could be some other "them" that could explain a bias in the coverage, like that someone hired by the President or Congress was responsible.

I guess by virtue of whoever is responsible for television coverage of presidential speeches being in the television business they are part of "the media", but I'd like to know who they are paid by.

I don't think it's too much of a stretch to at least suggest that some of the auto industries woes may have been made worse by the tightening of credit and general downturn of the economy brought on by the collapse of the mortgage industry.
