Dear Mr. President

You are wasting my time.

The economy is in the tank (0 jobs created...or saved this month)and I was looking forward to your speech on creating much needed soon as you finished your vacation.

Now that you have returned I am told that your speech will offer NO specifics, just an overview of what you think should be addressed to improve the job market.

We have heard this speech 5,632 times over the last three years and frankly it bores the hell out of me. Nothing but generalizations about "Green Jobs" ($535 million stimulus to Solyndra and still goes bankrupt), getting banks to loosen up credit to people that can't afford to repay the loan (my house lost another 1.5% in value this month due to foreclosures)and in typical Democratic logic, promising to reduce regulations that hinder companies from committing to new hires (enacting 5 job killing regs then delaying the implementation of 2 of them).

First you request to address a joint session of congress on the day the GOP debate is scheduled that includes the newest candidate that is racing up the polls (I'm sure you weren't even aware he threw his hat in the ring being you were so focused on creating jobs)which was rightly turned down, but you will accept doing it one day later...and you'll start really early so as not to interfere with the start of the premier MNF game.

If the conflict had arisen, I would have watched the debate, and if you haven't finished by kickoff, I'm switching to the game.
