The job losses were from the housing crash and resulting Lehman crash and of course the election of Obama (when clear thinking CEOs knew to right size immediately). And have they upsized? Of course not. Will not happen while Obama is in office. Our job gains are 83% part time, service and retail industry focused. And if you don't think $85 B monthly for 60 months has not dramatically propped up the market, go ahead and keep 90-100% in stocks when they quit. I dare you. And who is using the term "budget surplus". There has not been a "true" budget surplus since the 70s. (Clinton's budget were not surplus nor was Bush's first year though some charts show I). And OBTW- the 5 largest deficits in US history are all owned by Barak Hussein Obama "boy financial genius". The only thing saving Barak from skewering is his race and investment by the MSM.
