It is Obama who is moving American jobs to China.
He did so in the sake of "investing" in green energy jobs. Billions of green energy funds went to pay the salaries of Chinese workers making green lightbulbs. This is compounded by federal regulations with disallow the sale of anything but green lightbulbs.(he wants those chinese workers to enjoy some job security after all)
His job czar wad personally responsible for moving jobs manufacturing medical imaging equipment from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area (where it has been for decades) to Bejing.
You do realize that the legislation hat ended the old style light bulbs was signed by Bush, right???

Of course not.

Obama didn't move anything. Corporate America did.

Because they get a tax advantage. An advantage Romney wants to increase & Obama wants to end.

More Evidence of Liberal Pussification

Des Moines Lincoln High School football coach Tom Mihalovich was recently suspended when it was decided he had violated “school bullying and corporal punishment policies” after he made a sophomore run sprints and laps for saying mean things about the varsity team. From the Des Moines Register:

US election 2012: why Mitt Romney is all talk and no substance on foreign affairs

When it comes the world outside America, Republican challenger Mitt Romney offers lots of criticisms but few solutions

So much of this political campaign has been a struggle between narrative and facts. One of the few concrete actions Mitt Romney has promised in the area of foreign affairs is to increase America's military spending to four per cent of GDP – which would cost more than $2 trillion extra over the next decade. This hugely expensive, arbitrary benchmark gets predictable cheers from the cheap seats.

But doing the maths is important, especially because the Romney campaign's core is a commitment to rein in the generational theft of deficits and debt.

This $2 trillion dollar sop to the defence industry would overwhelm every specific cut he has proposed to domestic spending and social programmes, while also ensuring ballooning deficits into the future. When asked in the debate how this expense added up against the larger goals of deficit reduction, Ryan essentially had no response.

I called a defence analyst from the libertarian Cato Institute, Benjamin Friedman, looking for some perspective. "To be allegedly sceptical of government spending while being for spending massive amounts on defence it's just sort of the daily hypocrisy or ideological inconsistency," he said.

"If you say you don't think the government can efficiently deliver the mail, it's odd to say it can deliver democracy to Mesopotamia or Afghanistan."

The reality check resonates. With less than a month to the election, and two presidential debates left, this is the time for citizens to demand specifics, to drag arguments out of narrative abstractions and into the realm of actual governing.

His side encourages using less, it's do as i say, not as i do.
If you but renewable, green energy that does not pollute, it does not reduce our resources, does not produce greenhouse gas emissions.

It also promotes the green industry.

Define "typical gun nut."

I think you are confusing "typical gun nut" with "typical american gun owner."

Gun nuts go on shooting sprees usually killing innocent people in the process.

I have owned guns for 47 years and not one single person has ever been threatened with,or hurt by any of my weapons regardless of whose possession they were in.

Are you suggesting that no racist rhetoric has been spouted buy some far left freaks on this board?

If you don't see racism on the left then go look at the twitter of Stacey Dash.

Racism and Anti-Semitism is alive and well and neither is acceptable or should be tollerated in any shape or form. Racists are repugnant but to imply they only exist in one form or follow one party is naive in the extreme.

The unemployment rate was below 5% until March 2008 and 7.8% when Obama took office. It shot up to 10% by October of that year and hovered at over 9% until just very recently.
http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000
By the way, it stayed under 5% from June 2005 until February 2008. Ironically enough, Democrats took control of Congress in January 2008. Unemployment continued to steadily rise.
If only the majority of Democrats (and some Republicans) had agreed with Bush that Fannie and Freddie was a disaster waiting to happen before it was too late...
I have news, Bush was President until Jan 21st of 2009.

The Bush recession started in 4th quarter of 2007.

Quit blaming Bush's recession & its effects on Obama.

Please list the legislation the Democrats passed in 2007 that created this recession.

I keep asking & you right whiners keep not answering.

The U6 basically mirrors the Unemployment rate. It was 14% when Bush left office.
Bush's recession drove that rate to over 17%.

It was only in the two digit range right for a few months after 9/11 and a few months before the crash.

It's not that Obama didn't inherit a crappy economy.

We all acknowledge that.

It was his priorities the first two years in office with a democrat-majority congress that prolonged the recovery.

In fact, it was his priority, Obamacare, that is causing a lot of the problems we're having.

His priorities and policies have failed the American people.

40% of Every Small-Business Dollar Goes to Pay for Federal Regs

Right now, I spend more than 40 cents of every dollar the company takes in on complying with regulations.

You heard that right: more than forty cents. When I first started using that figure, people would say,‘wait, you’re talking about taxes too, right’? Nope, that is just what we spend on regulations.

You don’t have to take my word for it. The Small Business Administration recently revealed that federal regulations cost small businesses $1.7 trillion per year.

And this is before most of ObamaCare takes effect.

Democrats Plan More Tax Hikes

Schumer Previews What He’d Do in a Second Obama Term

If re-elected, President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will raise taxes on small business in order to sustain the ginormous federal government they have built. The White House duo have done nothing to avert “Taxmaggedon,” the massive tax hike scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. Worse, the administration’s congressional allies are preparing to push Mr. Obama even further should he win a second term.

The No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said Tuesday that he intends to eliminate tax deductions and credits without lowering the top two marginal tax rates. The New York Democrat thinks it’s more important that Uncle Sam pocket the extra cash that would be generated.
