Barack Obama, our next President

No wonder you follow what Romney is saying and the numbers add up for you. For people that are living in reality, they know better.
I know does.

steel toe boots
hard hat
transportation
fuel
coffee
lunch
supplies = manufacturing
heavy equipment = purchase & maintenance
clerical workers (3)
engineer/architect/site development (unknown)
employer provided health benefits
tools = more manufacturing
tax preparer
lawyer
doctor

It goes on and on. Everything sprials up.

And we get cheaper energy and has excess fuel to sell overseas!

Envisioning a pre-election hostage crisis, la Iran and Jimmy Carter,[Romney said], "If something of that nature presents itself, I will work to find a way to take advantage of the opportunity.
Romney's shocking statement came after a fat cat in the audience specifically brought up how Ronald Reagan used the Iranian hostage crisis to his campaign's advantage.
It is important to remember that the 47 percent and other fundraiser remarks were before the tragic killings of the US Ambassador to Libya and other foreign service representatives.
Sure enough, once the murders occurred, Romney rashly held a press conference that incorrectly conflated the deaths with a prior US Cairo Embassy news release and cast blame on Obama. However, the Romney campaign backed off for awhile due to a general condemnation by the DC punditry, many leading Republicans, and the corporate media of his reckless remarks.
But then Romney, who has no foreign policy or military experience (he was a Mormon missionary in France for two years though and received a deferment), returned to accusing the White House of not providing enough security for the diplomats who were killed. This attack line started to have some resonance when State Department "traffic" indicated that one or more verbal requests had been made for increased protection in Tripoli, the capital of Libya.(Who said what to whom and when is still being sorted out.)
Fast forward to the debate on Tuesday night. Based on a question from an audience member named Kerry Ladka, President Obama took full responsibility for handling the Benghazi situation and responded in a dignified fashion that honored the loss of life in the line of duty.
Then three words set in motion the defining moment of the debate when Crowley offered Obama a brief chance to respond to Romney saying that the president began his term with "an apology tour" through the Middle East.
Obama returned to the bloodshed in Benghazi. In his brief remark, he included these words: "The day after the attack, Governor, I stood in the Rose Garden, and I told the American people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror."

Sounds about right in the large scheme of things. Not only do you have to consider construction supplies but also how he/she gets to work and buys groceries. Because he is working he now has money to spend on concerts, movies, and other entertainment. You must look at the one job in the overall picture.

You see when the dems increased the minimum wage twice that cut the number of low paying jobs. This in turn caused more lack of jobs because they had no money to spend. The people who were barely getting by now are no longer getting by. You libtards cut the the legs right out from under the economy. This death spiral is what tanked the economy and is still tanking the economy.

I've made the same or more as any man in my chosen field. One reason, I put off childbearing until I had reached the executive suite. Once there, after proving my worth to the company, my various absences were not seen as impediments to my future promotions. Any employee, male or female, who appears to put anything before the company will not be the guy groomed for the corner office, and will make significantly less than the one seen as the person who will sell their soul for the corporation. Not pretty, but true.
People make choices. They need to live with the consequences. Women in my circle made the hard choices to have short maternity leaves and have their significant others take the lead in child rearing. Activists who say women can have it all do women no favors, unless of course, they want to perpetrate the poor little me stereotype that dictates special status for the female gender. I for one refuse the stereotype , most successful, self made women generally do.
THANK YOU! I agree and applaud you as I have done the same.
The only thing I am not completely on board with is 'selling your soul for the company.' Never was asked to and never would anyway.
I find in business, your word is your bond or you don't last.

Geez, I didn't know that! Giving to much free stuff to people, its what Socialist countries doo and create lazy nation. I like the way, when jobs use to be on every corner. When you get help, and soon you find job, you're out. When you're unemployed, you get training and unemployment or agencies help you find job. Now, for the last few years everything is so massed up. All this wars and policing over 150 countries around the world it's going to bankrupt America. Why is US have to change regimes around the world and tell everyone it's US way or the highway! A lot of countries don't want US to tell them what to do or how to run their countries. Some countries don't believe in American way or life, freedom or try to change they way of believes. Muslim fanatics use to chop peoples heads off 2,000 yrs ago and they still doing it today! Some things you can't never change...

WHAT YOU DO, IS, SECURE BORDERS OFF YOUR OWN COUNTRY, INFORCE AN IMMIGRATION LAW THAT YOU ALREADY HAVE ON THE BOOKS, DON'T LET ANYONE GET INSIDE YOUR COUNTRY WITHOUT VISA, WITHOUT DR. CHECKUP, TO MAKE SURE ENTERING U.S. YOU DON'T HAVE A DISEASE...that's how use to be...

How did Muhammad Atta got inside US without Visa and 2 of the 9/11 terrorists got they papers from the Immigration office, AFTER 9/11...?????

Climate Change A Policy of Global Depopulation and Lies

It looks like the delusional quasi-science of Global Warming is finally going to be defeated and seen for what it actually is a deadly policy of genocide and de-industrialization. This is what lies behind the Green Agenda, commonly known as Agenda 21.

You are extremely naive. All MSM is showing that clip over and over today and it is so obviously contrived and pre-planned by Obama, in step with Crowley, that it is working against both of them.

The three words 'act of terror' he used on 9/12, were not in response to the prior night's attack.

And everyone in the nation knows he repeatedly called it a 'spontaneous protest reacting to a video', in EVERY venue, from talk TV to the UN, for two weeks, before being forced to admit it was a terrorist attack, letting Hillary take the fall as she left for Peru, that no one is buying it.

Doesn't come off as a 'gotcha' on Romney. Comes off as DIRTY POOL by Obama ("get me the transcript") and Crowley, who by chance, had the transcript in her hand. Even MSNBC questioned it.

First of all, it's 77%, not 72%, but I digress. Which stereotype are you referencing?

Well, I didn't bring in the 'entertainment' aspect, but you are absolutely correct.

The constuction worker and his wife, who now works in human resources, went out to dinner last night. They discussed the new garage they are adding onto their house and the family vacation coming up in three months. Then they went home and paid the babysitter.:-) Sprial up.

So, you think your wife should make less than a man doing the same job?
