    Colin Powell is sending a not-so-subtle message to President Barack Obama – and he might be right.

    “I think the president has to, like a razor blade, just go right after the single issue that is uppermost in the minds of the American people, and that's employment,” Powell, the former Secretary of State, said on “Meet the Press” this week.

    “And he's done a lot with health care, with cap-and-trade, with education,” Powell said. “And I understand the importance of all of that. But as far as the American people are concerned, the main attack is employment.”

    Clearly, Obama has a lot on his plate: Ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; high crime in urban neighborhoods across the country; ongoing issues with immigration reform and challenges with the nation’s educational system.

    But it’s the economy that has many Americans worried, and they want jobs, not more speeches.

    He gave over a trillion dollars to corporate finance gangsters,

    so
    create jobs with what?

    Ending the war?
    Can't do that, cause those same corporate gangsters all need
    The Military industrial Complex to provide,
    platinum diamond studded rims for their HUMVEEs
