Not the evolution of technology? Not a shortage of qualified candidates?
Not the increase in productivity? Not the political gridlock and uncertainty?

Why isn't unemployment dropping??
There is no easy money asset boom that benefits all Americans, that is why the economy continues to limp along. Yes, QE helps institutional investors which benefits any American with a 401k, but an increase in a qualified plan people can't touch till 59 1/2 doesn't make people flush now.

Think about our last 2 boom cycles. Easy money and heated rush into Tech sector, and EVERYBODY was rushing in and felt flush with cash... They spend, the economy booms, people are hired, is all good... Then it crashes... Then comes super low interest rates and the Ownership Society... Housing creates and instant easy cash boom as people take money out of their homes like it is no different than earned income.. And why not, housing prices will go up forever!! Until they don't...

So what next, that's the question... Energy? Maybe. It is not Green Energy, still not economically viable. It's not a bright outlook, without easy money and big time consumer enthusiasm for spending, we will be stuck. To me, the Obama term has been about the fallout of 2 boom cycles, a period of deleveraging by Americans with regards to homes and credit, a period where companies clean up balance sheets and cut and fat in their workforce and remain skiddish about hiring on anybody when the current workforce can do more with less...

Honestly, I think hyper partisanship in Government has really screwed all Americans.... Compromises on simplifying the tax code, safety net reforms, immigration reform and a strong plan to tame long term debt would go a LNG way to give people confidence that government can get stuff done...

The so intelligent Obama doesn't know how many states there are and which cities have ports either. You'd think if he was going to make this an issue in regards to jobs, he would at least brush up on it, but he knows he has most of the media's help and protection. But I know, it's racist to question Obama's intelligence, but when liberals do so with black conservatives, that's different. Oh, and it's the "Panama Canal" Obama. Geez.

Q. You mentioned infrastructure. Why is that a partisan issue? I live in a town, the bridge is falling apart, it’s not safe. How does that become Republican or Democrat? How do you not just fix the bridge? (Laughter and applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: I don't know. As you know, for the last three years, I’ve said, let’s work together. Let’s find a financing mechanism and let’s go ahead and fix our bridges, fix our roads, sewer systems, our ports. The Panama is being widened so that these big supertankers can come in. Now, that will be finished in 2015. If we don't deepen our ports all along the Gulf — places like Charleston, South Carolina, or Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida — if we don't do that, those ships are going to go someplace else. And we’ll lose jobs. Businesses won’t locate here.

I especially agree with the 'bolded' sentence.

Your point is that Obama left out 'canal'.....an odd omission..... or that his statement (underlined) is incorrect?
