Didn't you say that he was a bad President?

. Obama's oil plan
March 31, 2010 | 6:34 am

Doing more with less. American workers have been more productive, despite working fewer hours, and this has stopped companies from hiring new workers, the Washington Post reports.

More jobless. A report from a private payroll company shows that American companies cut 23,000 jobs in March. That monthly figure is the lowest in two years, but it is higher than what analysts had expected.

Citi's score. New York's business friendly mayor, Michael Bloomberg, is watching one of his top deputies head off to take a high level job at Citigroup. Edward Skyler, a deputy mayor, will work on government relations at the big bank.

Obama's oil plan. Everyone is talking about oil as President Obama gets set on Wednesday to announce a new plan that will allow drilling for oil off parts of the East Coast but will maintain a ban off the California and Alaska coasts.

    We shouldn't all be blind to the fact that the clock is dinging, it's time for Obama to come to the center again. Elections are in 6 months. Between Passing the Transition to UHC Bill & coming to the center for Energy and making nice with TeaPartiers I'm not sure who Obama is anymore. If anyone knows where The Jackass's real interests lie, ....please let us know.

  • It does not matter that this will help an oil crisis in the future as well as create jobs. Some people will still have negative things to say. No matter what.

  • He's a liar. When he was running he said this wasn't an option.

  • Must be StupidAnonoTroll day again.........sheeeesh..........
    The cons should not be angry over this.....get it.
    YOU should be, if you voted for Obama and still are in love with him......THIS should anger you. You are the one he lied to, to get your vote.
    See how that works?
    NO, you don't see how that worked do you?

    AND if you are so gungho on loving this new brainiac idea of his,you should be discarding any remnants of your BushDerangementSyndrome about now.

  • I don't think people know what to expect when running. Even in everyday life you may think one way then see more benefots one way and change. I'm not saying I'm one way or another about this particular instance.

  • We need wind turbines up all over the place and oil rigs every where so we don't have to rely on another country for our fuel and clean energy for our electricity.

  • Jewjew, WHATEVER O does is just awesome, to them anonotrolls! Regardless of what he said during the campaign, even if it was just last week, it is all good, if HE does it! Logic is not part of the thought process when one is overdosed on Kool-Aid!
