8.3 million have stopped looking for work ... nnual median household income has declined by $4,019, or 7.3%. Moreover, the decline has been greater since the recession supposedly ended in June, 2009, than it was during the recession. In the three years from June, 2009, until June, 2012, median household income declined by 6%.

Yep, things are getting better. LOL Da Bammy has FAILED.... and you want four more years OF THIS? America can't afford that.

They wouldn't be able to use the name FOX News and would have to appear opposite Red Green.

Nazis were socialist in every sense. Hitler imposed state control over every aspect of life. That's anti conservative.

I don't think he has, nor any other republican, none on here either. They pretend it doesn't exist. Except for maybe Fred who said who cares? But he says that about rape too, so...
Romney could kill Fred's entire family and Fred would say 'who cares?'

I agree with you; if Romney gets elected; all women should boycott sex; they y'all can gfy or gsy, whatever the case may be. That'll teach you to fool with women.

Both sides passed the legislation that created the housing bubble. The main legislation that caused it was written and proposed by Republicans at the urging of the banking industry and signed into law by a Democrat. When it was getting out of control both "liberal" and "conservative" groups warned Congress and the White House. Pelosi, Reid and Bush/Cheney all sat on their hands.
The truth.

How refreshing.

**Battleground Poll Projection: Rom’s 52 – Obb’s 47**

“The bipartisan Battleground Poll, in its “vote election model,” is projecting that Mitt Romney will defeat President Obama 52 percent to 47 percent.”

**New Rasmussen OHIO: Rom’s 50%- Obbers 48%**

Add this data to the Battleground Poll “vote election model” and we are looking at a LANDSLIDE for President-elect Romney next week.

One thing good is that Fred now hates Anne Coulter, not sure why.
So, there's a glimmer of hope.

did I just hear what I thought I heard? Did the lady just say lower Manhattan could expect 11 feet of water? I've been there. That is about the second floor of most buildings. Not to mention the subways. Closing two tunnels sometime today. We had a tunnel flood here a few years back and it took them over a week to pump it out. It's maybe 3/4 of a mile, if that. How long would it take to pump out the subways.

Hindenburg homer accuses fred of which he is most guilty. Projection is a mental defect which helps Hindenberg homer live in his liberal fantasy world.

Okay, I just about did.
But any newspaper in Chicago endorsing Romney at least makes me a little giddy. Can't help it.
How about right-leaning ones endoring Obama?-

CHICAGO -- For only the second time in its 165-year history, the Chicago Tribune has endorsed a Democratic candidate for president.

Once again, President Barack Obama will enjoy his hometown Tribune's seal of approval, the newspaper announced Friday. The paper lauded the president for his careful projection of military power abroad and pragmatism as the country's economic "dominoes toppled." The Tribune editorial reads:

Four years ago, when we endorsed Obama’s run for the White House, we said he would act with decisiveness and intellectual rigor. Ironically he has shown those attributes most where Americans might have expected them least.

The right-leaning paper admitted that Mitt Romney's policies should have made him a more obvious choice for their endorsement, but they described the GOP nominee as "astonishingly willing to bend his views to the politics of the moment: on abortion, on immigration, on gun laws and, most famously, on health care.".

Romney wants to shift resources from wasteful public spending to the private sector to boost entrepreneurs, tap our vast and growing energy rsources, reform education and reform entitlements to preserve them before they are bankrupt. This plan has never not worked.

Obama's New Normal is like an illness one thinks they have to live with, Mediocrititis. His manifesto is more tax hikes, more spending, more debt and more Obamacare in pursuit of redistribution.

How exactly is Obama's plan supposed to work? When has it ever worked? At the current pace of job creation over the past two years, the economy won't return to the Bush low of 4.4% unemployment for another 9 years.

Obama has fixed nothing and made everything worse. His campaign slogan of FORWARD, must mean driving us right off the fiscal cliff.
