    Why would anyone do something so naive? Walmart could eliminate those positions altogether without really affecting the operation of the store before they would pay someone $10 or $12/hr to do them.

    The article is about yesterday's report of 160,000 jobs creation. Most are low paying, part time jobs.

    Something the king is good at besides taking vacations.

    Not sure about that. They still have greeters at the stores In the area I live in.

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    As ye sow, so shall ye reap. Obama is getting exactly what he deserves. But we deserve better. Yet another example of the failure of liberal policies. Obama's stimulus was graft to unions and bundlers and did nothing but delay the layoffs for a year. His Obamacare is like a GIGANTIC SEA ANCHOR on the economy.

    One man's lack of leadership...yes. Reagan was one man. Lincoln was one man. Washington was one man. Jefferson was one man. Bear Bryant was one man. Steve Spurrier is one man. Urban Meyer is one man. Sam Walton was one man. Steve Jobs was one man. Bill Gates is one man. Warren Buffet is one man.

    One man (or one woman) with vision, ideas, conviction and the ability to lead and inspire others to do great things can be a difference maker. You were a teacher. Ever have a bad principal? Ever have a good one? Ever have a great one?

    Aren't you looking at it from only one angle......what about obstruction, partisanship and the my way or the highway kind of mindset.

    Bush does own some of this......you turn a blind eye to that. Much easier to attack and denigrate liberals.

    Yep. Both sides are to blame. The sooner everyone acknowledges that and starts to hold their own parties accountable instead of pointing fingers and displacing blame the better off the country would be. That will never happen though. Both parties and its members would rather play tit for tat and accomplish nothing but destruction

    What ? You mean there will be more - or fewer :huh: - people standing around doing nothing, with commercial, slightly insincere smiles on their faces, saying hello to people they don't know and don't care about, producing nothing and watching the clock ?

    What a great vision for the country ! Whoopee !

    The Civil Rights Movement had similar if not harder obstacles to over come. Yet they were successful. A gigs amount of that success is due to one man and his leadership. That man was Martin Luther King.

    The employment issues mentioned here of hiring more temp help, part/time work, moving middle-wage jobs overseas have been occurring for many years. Comparing Obama to MLK is a red herring.....different man, different time. Corporate hiring trends are an issue....and not a good sign for the future of the middle class. Does it make sense to place the responsibility of all this on one man rather than corporate powers....why is big business off the hook?
