Two of the stories topping our list this week: the new discovery that King Tut died from malaria and that his parents were likely brother and sister, and President Obama highlighting how the $862 billion stimulus plan has been working a year after he signed it into law.

Here are highlights from both stories.

    Obama missed his opportunity to generate real jobs and not simply prop up the overpaid federal and state employment sector. That ship has sailed and there is no second chance. He now has only to sit and wait and hope that the economy can heal itself organically. It's no longer in his hands.

    I think Obama is running the government just fine. The stimulus has generated lots of jobs. How can Obama have missed an opportunity to create real jobs, when he has created real jobs through the stimulus.LOL.The congressional budget office which is non-partisan said that the stimulus has created jobs. Only republicans and independents, not all of them, but a good amount of them are living in denial and are believing that the stimulus hasn't worked. You can ignore facts and live in denial, but you can't fight facts. That talk about the stimulus not working is a flat out lie.

    Obama has finished 1 year, he has 3 years left . He has plenty of time to continue to improve the economy. Lets not forget he inherited this mess, people are talking as if this started while he was in office. People on the right and in the middle may say, you can't keep blaming the previous administration, but, I think you can,especially since they keep blaming him for not cleaning up the mess that he inherited fast enough. As long as President Obama keeps getting attacked he needs to keep reminding people that he inherited a serious debt and that the economy was tanking even before he took office.
