Your comment is just further verification to me that Americans want everything instantly. It is going to take investments of the kind Obama is thoughtfully doing to turn around the horrific economy Bush put us in. When do Americans start to look longer term? At what point do Americans understand Obama's "spending" as investments (i.e., much of his "spending" were loans to green businesses and the auto companies, who have or very clearly will pay back with interest). Obama's spending is not mindless. The auto industry is for the first time making cars that compete with Japan (think, Chevy Volt). why? because Obama conditioned their bailout on their doing so. The republicans opposed the bailout. Not only did the bailout save jobs, it more importantly positioned American to compete with Japan, as will his investments in education and green energy. THere is a reason that China leads the world in education; they understand that is how they are going to rule the world economically. You have to spend some money to make money. Isn't that the adage? Romney criticizes "spending" on education. And what about Obama's investments in green energy, which Romney mischaracterizes as money down the drain; there is a reason Saudi Arabia, who sits on over 1/2 of the worlds oil is investing billions of dollars in solar and wind energy. Obama is the first "holistic" visionary in the white house that i can remember. Americans like you are too short-sited to see the future he sees.

What would you do to change the welfare system so that it is a helping hand, as they are looking for employment, not a system that they use instead of looking for employment.

Obama and Romney. Why not create government jobs? When government jobs will stop companies pick pocketing from the governments main resource, "The American people" example! security companies use the American people to profit money from business who need & want security. Why not create a gov. security job and those profits can be going to cutting our nations debt in half. As i put time to calculate the profits, and math proves just security alone can revenue $2.7 trillion in one year.
