In all seriousness, why do people expect Obama to personally create and hire them for a job? What happened to the "American way" of starting our own businesses and creating our own jobs? Small businesses are supposed to be the backbone of our economy. Since when do we as Americans expect to sit around and wait for a job to be created for us?

I know that there are many moms on this site who operate their own small businesses, whether it be their main source of income or a hobby on the side to create extra cash flow. Why don't we ask them questions and see how they have done it? Everyone has a vision/dream/etc...why not takes steps to make that dream or vision a reality? Every mom on here who has started a small business started it with a simple idea in their head and did what they had to do to make it happen. We can learn from these women who have taken proactive steps to employ themselves.

I commend every woman here who has put in hard work, made sacrifices, and done anything necessary to turn what they are passionate about into sustainable work. It is not easy, but it IS doable. This is what America needs to strive for. Who REALLY wants to work for someone else their entire life anyway, ya know?

I agree that Obama has done great things for our country. But then again, I am not blinded by hate so I might be in the minority in this post.

I have benefited in several ways as well.

It is not about hate. It is about difference in political views. Does every not remember the "hate" towards Bush and Clinton. It is always like this with every President. I actually like the guys personality, I just do not agree with his policies.
