"The once-muscular presidency of Barack Obama has undergone a dramatic downsizing - in power, popularity, prestige and ambition - to the point where even Obama die-hards are starting to question his ability to right the economy or win reelection."-Glenn Thrush and Carrie Budoff Brown
We will always remember.

 


September 11, 2001.

 

"Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others.
 
It's a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning.
 
It's also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend-even a friend whose name it never knew. "

- President George W. Bush,
December 11, 2001

JOBS. JOBS. JOBS.

 

 

As the unemployment rate remains at 9.1%, job growth is at the top of the most American's minds. 

 

Tonight President Obama plans to outline his jobs plan in a speech before a joint session of Congress.

 

Read below what some CEO's had to say about what President Obama could do to reduce unemployment.  

 

"If the government would get out of the way, from a regulation standpoint, and let us [XXI] do what we do good you'll see us continue to hire and grow this economy."

 -John Schiller, chairman and CEO of Energy XXI

 

There are some specific things that can be done 'in terms of moving government out of the way where it's in the way of job creation."

-Richard Parsons, chairman of Citigroup

 

Republicans agree we need to get Washington out of the way to spur job growth.

 

Where do we start? 

 

 "We can start by eliminating burdensome mandates and regulations; stopping policies that drive up gas prices; expanding American energy production in order to increase jobs and American manufacturing; and approving free trade agreements that open new markets to American-made goods. These ideas and other much-needed reforms are part of Republicans' Plan for America's Job Creators."
