Well, they cant "create" jobs, they can only change stuff so that its easier for companies to be started. Ever hear of the Jobz program? It nullifies certain taxes for companies. One of my dad's companies is a member of that.
And the economy is comming back up check the S&P 500, Dow, and Nasdaq
Well, none of them are perfect, recessions do happen, and no one man can do anything about it. And no one man can cause it, or take any blame when it goes either way. The economy reflects this country as a whole, when people get scared, they stop investing (investing can be buying a product, or buying stock, anything). And with my dad's other company, when the economy was pretty bad, he was looking to hire, and even though there was a fairly high unemployment rate, he was still having problems getting people to apply. He adventually got people when a near by company had to close that branch and even then it wasnt for a month or two afterwords.
I'm sorry; those charts mean nothing to me, since I know nothing of investments and market shares and stuff. I just know what surrounds me: unemployment and growing restlesness; people saying that the economy is getting better, yet no real sign of it.
It is true that he cannot "create jobs." However, his tries to make better grounds for these jobs to flourish do not seem to work. At all. More so, many reports have accused him of playing special interests for companies; decisions that do not help the average joe.
Another reason I won't vote for him is this.
