Those with jobs thank those greedy jerks for having a one.
In all seriousness, thank your bosses.

Good day Lily. I know this is a hot button for you, but I see middle ground here. Clearly racism exists, I do not deny it and I do not condone it. Yet, we also have people applying racism to situations where it does not exist, a red herring so to speak. The argument goes both ways.
Either way I get your point. My point was that calling out Franklin Raines for mismanagement had absolutely nothing to do with race.
Thank you; I really don't know the details about Franklin Raines beyond that it seems to me from reading here and there, that there were plenty of hands in that pot from both sides of the aisle to create that quagmire.

Romney claim to gain 12 million jobs?

Big Deal.

It will happen by just following current policies.

"In case you need a refresher: Assuming a very rough estimate of 1 million new jobs per 1% increase in economic growth, the Fed’s September forecast had the economy adding between 5.5 million and 6.8 million jobs in 2013 and 2014, with the pace quickening in the following years. Moody’s Analytics’ August forecast was slightly sunnier, but roughly in the same range. So Romney’s pledge to create 12 million jobs in four years is on the conservative end of the spectrum. More importantly, that predictive spectrum is based on current policy. In other words, Romney is pledging to preserve the economic status quo."

Why risk electing an unknown. Romney has been on both sides of every issue.

He has goals but no plan. He has no details.

His plan is to sit down with Congress - Boehner, Canter, McConnell - the same guys there under Bush that voted for all this mess to begin with.

What a crock. Obama has done nothing to keep jobs from moving overseas...
"In one of his first major decisions on trade policy, President Obama opted Friday to impose a tariff on tires from China, a move that fulfills his campaign promise to "crack down" on imports that unfairly undermine American workers but risks angering the nation's second-largest trading partner."

Of course, this is nothing like what China invested R'Money has sworn to do the day after he is elected by declaring China a Currency Manipulator..."Say Anything Stepford Bishop"

<quoted text>amazing how the party of secrecy about their president handles any truth that is inconvenient to Obama's getting re-electing with the knee-jerk reaction of screaming it's a "lie."
we knew all there is to know about George Bush, when a 2000 story surfaced that Bush used cocaine, the media was all over it. when a rumor surfaced that in high school Romney bullied a classmate or later put a dog on the roof of his car, the media was all over it--vetting, scrutinizing, getting to the bottom of it all and giving much MSM attention to each instance.
about Obama though, the party and their media lapdogs who are both so quick to talk about mis-stating the truth if it doesn't fit their agenda--their is a MAJOR INcuriousity. Frank Marshall Davis, Roberto Unger, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers--all part of Obama's leftist past--and all ignored with only fleeting scrutiny and little vetting.
for example, why no investigative reporting on Wright's claim that an Obama aide offered him $150K to keep quiet in 2008?
why no investigative reporting on the many distortions and false claims made by obama in his autobiographies?
the answer lies in the first post--page 1--because they just wanted to elect a black president. period. Jeebus was right.
Frank Marshall & Bill Ayers are figments of your imagination. One was a family friend & other merely an acquaintance. One was his pastor. All these were investigated & they found nothing truthful to report on.

Your problem is you confuse the sewage from Fox, Limbaugh & Beck as the truth.
