Do you follow the posts during a topic of discussion? I just posted this a few posts ago.

But if that isn't good enough for you, PolitiFact also weighed in and reached a conclusion:
"The Obama campaign took a legitimate statistic and described it in a way that makes it sound much more dramatic than it actually is. The 77-cent figure is real, but it does not factor in occupations held, hours worked or length of tenure. Describing that statistic as referring to the pay for women 'doing the same work as men' earns it a rating of Mostly False."

Unfortunately, just about everything Obama says is "Mostly False".
Now please acknowledge that you read this in its entirety before responding.
Rather than read the biased minutiae, I did read your bit on PolitiFact as I read it regularly. You stretched the facts, similar to Romney.

President Obama debated like Ali boxed. A clear rout by President Obama over Governor Romney:
Obama Biden 2012.
If you look at Ali's bouts, you'll discover he never won a fight when the referee didn't allow him to "cup" his opponent.(In case you are actually interested in this, "cupping" is holding the back of your opponent's head down, forcing your opponent to exert his energy trying to stand up against the force of the hand pushing the back of his head down.) In every fight where the referee didn't allow Ali to "cup" his opponent, Ali lost.

So in Romney world. Every person that is hired will create 10-15 other jobs? Each person? So for every 10 construction workers a company hires, it will take 150 other positions to support those 10? I don't think so. And just because a person gets a job, it does not mean they have the money to spend. Hell, if they follow the Conservative way, they shouldn't spend any unnecessary money and should bank everything they have. Isn't that how you grow the economy? It's OK for millionaires to bank all their money and not spend anything, but you want middle America to spend theirs, so that all that money gets banked by more millionaires?
I just don't think that is realistic.
In the stupid realms of America-with NO financial responsibility or ethos-some of isn't.

But why PUNISH those who are not as lame brained-for the STUPIDITY of the ones that are? I just don't think that's realistic OR feasibly sound minded either (as in why bother to reward on merit when being stupid will render the same--THIRD WORLD conditions for everyone.)

"Despite numerous media outlets attempting to downplay the issue, Twitter exploded last night following the debate with new threats from Obama supporters to assassinate Mitt Romney if he defeats Obama in the presidential race."
Hell. If Obama wins, they'll just continue slaughtering each other like it's a war zone.

By the way, how many people were murdered over the weekend in, say, Obama's old neighborhood Chicago?

"Mr. President, Governor Romney, as a 20-year-old college student, all I hear from professors, neighbors and others is that when I graduate, I will have little chance to get employment," began Jeremy Epstein, the evening's first questioner. "What can you say to reassure me, but more importantly my parents, that I will be able to sufficiently support myself after I graduate?"

This was the question that set the tone.

Nobama, you must realize by now, conservatives are driven by facts, liberals are driven by emotion. This explains why Homer has been crying a lot lately (he blames ragweed season, but we know what's up).

Didn't read any stretch by PolitiFact. This is what they said:

The Obama ad takes a solid statistic and describes it incorrectly. The campaign is wrong to say that the 77-cent figure describes the pay differences between men and women "doing the same work."

The 77-cent figure compares all male and female workers, regardless of their occupation.

Indeed, if you look at men and women working in the same professions, the pay gap is much smaller (more like a difference of 5 cents in most professions).

At least two other factors weaken the accuracy of the ad’s claim, according to PolitiFact. One involves hours worked and seniority on the job.
