This is great but you left out the best part where Ryan claimed the stimulus money to Wisconsin would create jobs.
But but, you didn't seen to realize, it was sent to each State, to help 'create jobs'? Come on Ben,'If ain't nobody buyin''Why would you 'create jobs'?

Does it matter if Fox News reported the headlines too?

Here's a news flash for ya'. Fox News is not just commentaries and political analyists like O'Reilly and Hannity. They have legitimate news reporters - who even go to White House press conferences!

Industries looking for ways to avoid Obamacare is headline news.

Lindsay Lohan Endorses Romney, And It's Actually A Really Big Deal
Saturday, October 13, 2012
Business Insider ^| Oct. 12, 2012, 9:44 | Walter Hickey

Lindsay Lohan came out in support of Mitt Romney yesterday. While most would, at first glance, write this off as gossip, it's the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama's chance at winning the White House. Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.

Fox's Charles Krauthammer Suggests Media Shouldn't Always Fact-Check Candidates' Claims
http://mediamatters.org/video/2012/10/12/foxs...
But that only applies to Mitt.
Kind of like whining about the MSM saying Biden won his debate, whilst dancing on the MSM grave of the last Obama debate performance.
Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto is one of many who agree with Krauthammer. He wrote a devastating take-down of the rise of the news media’s so-called “fact checkers.”

"The usual conservative complaint about all this ‘fact checking’ is the same as the conservative complaint about the MSM’s product in general: that it is overwhelmingly biased toward the left.”

He concluded,“The form amplifies the bias. It gives journalists much freer rein to express their opinions by allowing them to pretend to be rendering authoritative judgments about the facts.”

CNN has also discredited fact checkers as showing bias against conservatives, specifically Paul Ryan.

Sure Carol but what's the GOP's answer? Cut taxes and regulations which didn't do anything the last time it was tried. Let's take a look at the Romney way of doing business.
Sensata Technologies in Illinois made sensors for the automobile industry and made record profits with the resurgence of the auto industry. That wasn't enough for its owners Bain Capital who figured they could line their own pockets even more by shipping the jobs and equipment to China. While Romney is no longer with Bain it's his business strategy that they're going by and as a major stockholder he still makes money from their deals. The workers of Sensata went to Iowa and to the GOP convention in Tampa to plead their case directly with Romney who as the founder and a major stockholder in Bain still has considerable influence. Their pleas fell on deaf ears.
Bain in addition to padding their profits by paying Chinese workers a fraction of what the American workers were making got a tax deduction for shipping those jobs and equipment to China. Democrats have introduced legislation to end this deduction but have been consistently blocked by the Republicans.

So gov't does create jobs? Spending on education creates more than twice as many jobs as spending on the military.
What you state doesn't speak to Romney's hypocrisy regarding his military budget. Romney wants to add $2 trillion to the defense budget. With what, pixie dust?? We could cut "defense" and still ensure our safety from foreign threats.
The US spends more on its military than the next 19 biggest spending nations combined. If the point of spending is to create jobs, then the military is the last place that we would want to put our dollars. The military contractors are screwing this country. 300 dollar hammers...600 dollar toilet seats...1200 dollar coffee makers....think there might be a little price gouging? And who makes the money? Can you say Defense Contractors? Talk about waste.

The U.S. Employment Effects of Military and Domestic Spending Priorities: 2011 Update
Robert Pollin | Heidi Garrett-Peltier | 11/28/2011
This study focuses on the employment effects of military spending versus alternative domestic spending priorities, in particular investments in clean energy, health care and education. We first present some simple alternative spending scenarios, namely devoting $1 billion to the military versus the same amount of money spent on clean energy, health care, and education, as well as for tax cuts which produce increased levels of personal consumption.
Our conclusion in assessing such relative employment impacts is straightforward:$1 billion spent on each of the domestic spending priorities will create substantially more jobs within the U.S. economy than would the same $1 billion spent on the military. We then examine the pay level of jobs created through these alternative spending priorities and assess the overall welfare impacts of the alternative employment outcomes. We show that investments in clean energy, health care and education create a much larger number of jobs across all pay ranges, including mid-range jobs (paying between $32,000 and $64,000) and high-paying jobs (paying over $64,000). Channeling funds into clean energy, health care and education in an effective way will therefore create significantly greater opportunities for decent employment throughout the U.S. economy than spending the same amount of funds with the military.
$530 million to Solydra for green jobs is waste. Then $17 million more to retrain 1,100 green workers for new green jobs is overkill!

It would help if she was a registered voter. If she does register, let's all hope to God she votes by mail and doesn't drive to the polls. Can't imagine the death toll on that scenario.
