    They can start by not allowing libertarians to make excuses

    I have some ideas...
    1. All companies must hire americans on unemployment first, fire all the illegals they ahve hired, and after americans have jobs, start hiring guest workers
    2. Stop selling green tech like solar panels and wind turbines as energy replacvement, and start seelign it as suplimental. That si in fact what it is geared for at the moment. To sell it as replacement is actually false advertizing, of which by and large republicans are guilty of.
    3. Stop assuming you have a huge buying pool for green tech and start understanding you need to develope a huge buying pool for green tech. Not just for the cost savings but for the fact that it deminishes our dependency on foregin oil or at least starts to. We need to start beign realistic, and we need to recognize that we're the ones acting liek the village idiots when we argue agianst such tech adn foregin powers are acting liek the village elders.
    4. All governors and the president need to disassociate themselves with their chosen political party and start acting liek independents.
    That's a start, but a lot of the problems woudl get solved.

    OK, they said the rich make the jobs, they got what they wanted, so where are the new jobs ?
    I want to see new jobs as fast if not faster than they wanted the economy repaired.
    It's been 30 minutes and NO NEW JOBS HAVE BEEN CREATED !!!!!!!!!!!

    re. Compromise on taxes
    All these references to 700B . . . wasn't that a 10-year projection
    so now it should be re-framed to a 2Yr. projection

    I think that Obama just paid the "ransom" to the GOP who held the country hostage. I do not recognize what Obama did as being a truly "bipartisan deal" because the terms were dictated to him by the GOP who were holding the country hostage. Paying ransom money to hijackers is not a serious and fair deal in my opinion, it is just caving in to the demands of unreasonable people who want things either their way or no way!

    Hijackers do not make serious deals with people who they think are weak and who they think that they have control over, they dictate the ransom terms to them. This is definitely what happened to Obama in my opinion. He paid the GOP the ransom money that it wanted to free the country from being hijacked.

    Expect this to continually happen for as long as Obama is in office because he is a VERY weak leader in my opinion. I think that Obama is just like a weak child in the school yard who is being picked on by bullies. Bullies do not seriously negotiate in good faith, they just dictate their terms of surrender like how hijackers who are in control do. Obama just accepted the GOP's terms of surrender in my opinion.

    THE ECONOMY NEEDS A TRILLION DOLLAR STIMULUS OF NEW
    MONEY, NOT BORROWED. IF THE FEDERAL RESERVE CAN CREATE
    NEW MONEY TO BAIL-OUT BANKS, IT CAN CREATE NEW MONEY
    TO PUT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO WORK. THE NEWS MEDIA OUGHT
    TO GET HOLD OF BOTH EARS AND PULL ITS HEAD OUT OF ITS ASS.
