You said all that yet stated nothing that disputes my point:
Where a capital gain can be documented — when a builder spends ten years creating a housing development, for example — then whatever that builder earns in the tenth year is a capital gain, not ordinary income. There is no guarantee in advance that the builder will ever recover his expenses, much less make a profit.
Most liberals couldn't balance thier checkbook much less understand finance beyond 3 decimal points.
There is no difference between a builder building a $80K house & a business buying 80K in inventory.

A know of no builder that will build an entire development without a single item being sold.

Here you go again. Blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush generated recession.
Obama has improved the economy.
Why will you vote for Paul Ryan when you just admitted the recession is part his fault?
Opotus hasn't done chit--except get us millions of dollars more in debt-quicker than any president is US History--all while watching Amercian civil servants burn in jihadist hell on closed circuit telebision.

WTF we doing in Libya, aside from handing armament out to jihadists? At least Quadifi despised al qeada and like (SICKOS)minded.

Experts said it would take many years o fully recover.
The economy is Obama's not the previous president that has been out of office for 4 years!
The economy was actually growing more under Bush and in the beginning of Obama's presidency because of Bush. WHen Obama kicked in with his destructive Obamacare...well we can see what happened, and it sure as hell wasn't Bush driving the car!
GDP 2012 1.7%
GDP 2011 1.8%
GDP 2010 2.4%
Obama is responsible for the economy and has proven he doesn't know what to do, how to do it, or how to even come up with a plan. He is in over his head. Time for change, time for experience, time for hope, which means it's time for Obama to GO!!!

Obama's military record is.....????
Romney's military record or lack there of, is not really important when he is running against someone with NO military experience themself.
Obama has also shown that he will not even think to increase security at our embassey's on 9/11 like has been done every year since 2001 and that is even if they request security on several occasions, even getting to a point of practically begging for more security. But man he'll get right on tracking them down won't he? He hasn't even admitted it wasn't the damn video yet so chances are he figures they had a good excuse and all he needs to do is apologize, after all, someone in the United States made fun of Mohammad and we know the president won't stand for that!
Face it, no matter what happens in the election Obama would never get through a second term without being impeached for the Lybia failure. That is Obama's "Nixon moment", except in Obama's moment 4 American's died, including our Ambassador. Obama will be thrown out on his ass because unlike Nixon he doesn't have the ability to show the honor to step down on his own....he is far to narcissistic to do that.
Four years as CinC.

There was no draft or war when Obama was of age.

There were both when Romney was. His choice - run & hide.

I wish you right whiners would quit using Libya as a political tool. There is no cover up. The decision not to go in was made by the military.. So really, how pathetic can you get.

One of our best military minds, Colin Powell, endorsed Obama.

Mitt Romney is the kind of man that would NEVER require the use of a TelePrompTer to talk to a class full of 6th grade elementary students. He graduated Cum Laud from Harvard. What were Barry's grades again? Oh, thats right, he refuses to share them with the country because it would embarrass him and the democrats on just how average he is.

! The latest Presidential polls of swing states in the 2012 election have revealed that Republican candidate Mitt Romney has a significant lead against President Barack Obama. According to the latest Rasmussen poll released Saturday, Romney now has a 6 percent lead across the 11 key swing states.
The Rasmussen poll presented combined results across the 11 key swing states which were won by President Obama in 2008, and which are thought to be the key states in deciding who will win the presidential among "likely voters."
Those 11 states inwere still undecided just over a week until election day.
Saturday's poll win for the Republican candidate, means that Romney has now led in the cumulative swing states poll for 10 consecutive days.

He chose not to.

Just like he chose NOT to truthfully INFORM the America public of the INCOMPETENCE of Foreign Policy FAILURE in Libya--For the OBVIOUs POLITICAL reasons!!!

Reaan???Ronald reagan was the worst president this country ever had Reagan was worse than Jimmy Carter

Ronald Reagan was one of the worst Presidents this country has seen. He was a total phony who would read from a script to hide his worsening dementia. He cared not an iota for the common man, but was a typical republican, only interested in enriching his big business buddies, and laying waste to the third world.

Least we forget, it was Reagan's policies that brought

1) Change to the federal tax system, giving massive tax breaks to the wealthy and big business, and shifting a horrendous tax burden to the middle class;

2) Change to environmental laws, wrecking havoc on natural resources, endangered species, and the health and welfare of all Americans;

3) Change to labor laws, wrestling hard-earned workers' rights from unions, and causing at least one industry, air traffic control, into paralysis, affecting the safety of air traffic for more than a year;

4) Change to American foreign policy, by selling arms to Iran, and forwarding the profits to right-wing Central American dictators to help fund their death squads;

5) Change to monetary policies resulting in his leaving office with the largest federal deficit yet seen in US history;

6) Change to education - when he could not disband the US Department of Education, as he campaigned to do - he succeeded in reducing Federal education spending by 50%, and ravaged local education control by diverting funding to the state leve.

Reagan was Probably the most overrated president in the history of America. His "trickle down" policies basically let the poor go to hell, while the privileged were allowed more privileges. Meanwhile, Reaganomics had a great success in raising national debt from $700 billion to $3 trillion.

He is given credit for ending the Cold War instead of the true heros like Gorbachev and to a lesser extent, Walesa. Communism was on its last legs anyway and the system was failing from within. Reagan didn't do much more than make a few nice, happy speeches.

The idea he supported freedom is a myth, shown by his support for brutal South American dictators which was/is glossed over. Reagan installed the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and propped up Saddam Hussein in Iraq despite the known atrocities. Later, the Republicans would do a HUGE U-turn on this, in their quest for oil.

And anyone who chooses shit like Donald Rumsfeld to work for them, can't be all that great.
Ronald Reagan: impressive facade, but mediocre presidency behind.
