If you insist on sticking your limited viewpoint into a thread, why not, at least, keep to the subject? Just more right wing deflection.
You're rants are getting shriller as the inevitability of an Obama re-election becomes clear and inevitable. You see, most Americans aren't actually as mean-spirited, frightened and uninformed as you. So keep on frothing and be thankful, you'll have Obama for four more years as the focus of you're childish whining and blaming.
For guys who love patting yourselves on the back for personal responsibility you sure do a lot blaming.
Great post Joe...

Anyone else notice that the artificially low unemployment rate went up this month? That hopey changey thing just doesn't seem to be working and you can only cook the books so much before your fraud is exposed.

We seriously need a person in the White House who understands how wealth is created not someone who wants to redistribute wealth so that everyone is a loser just like in third world countries. Yes, there will be the ultra wealthy but that creates an atmosphere where everyone benefits.

Romney/Ryan will get the job done!

Lets see, if the unemployment rate went up just before the election wouldn't that show that it honestly went down last month?

Romney is going to get it done on an extended vacation. Ryan is going to try and hold the House together for two more years. Neither will deliver their home state(s) while Obama and Biden will.

With millions out of work.
With a 7.9% unemployment rate (40 months over 8%)

More the $16 Tril in debt

Wow you are so not smart are you? So,what you are saying is that we are all better off if there are fewer people that have more of the wealth, even though history shows otherwie? And is would appear that the cooking of the books ended in 2009, January to be exact. The cost of the "wars",which were not addded to the Bush debt totals BTW, plus the cost of the Bush tax cuts,which unfortunately the President was strong armed into extending, are what have added to the debt more than anything else.

The only job that Romney/Ryan will get done will be to become obscure bad memories and the answer to a trivia question.

Redistribution by what means? If you are talking about taking money from someone to give to someone else then the economy goes south because those people who create wealth just won't. If you are talking about redistribution through natural means, IE: I make a product and you buy it and then I use the profit to buy more materials to make more stuff plus I go out and buy things from others for myself, then that is a good thing. One only need look at all the countries that have tried option one above to see that that system is a failure. It leaves many countries in a third world status and others where everyone just gets by.

The debt was noted. You can't hide the debt. You can bury where the money comes from but you can't hide the bottom line. Bush added $5 trillion to our debt in 8 years. Obama added $6 trillion in 4 years (on track to do so). That's the facts. Where does the history of this nation of free enterprise show that we have failed to have one of the highest levels of lifestyle in the world? The poor people in this country have untold wealth compared to the wealth redistribution third world countries of the world. So, yes, it is good to have a system where some people can become very wealthy. By the way, personal attacks on one's supposed intelligence is not a very good argument when trying to defend your own position.

Sure, but you should have seen overwhelming crowd of less than 200 that showed up at Stevie Wonder's benefit concert for O'blowzo. They were nuts, too! ;-)

In the third debate, what did Obama mean when he referred to Biden as his "current" vice president? Why hasn't the media picked up on that?
