<quoted text>Well duh John, economic growth will definitely ease the pressure on both taxes and spending, any real ideas on how to improve the economy? Should we consult Romney on his 12 million new jobs plan?
Perfect reply. Hey, you're closer than I, take a wild azz guess at how many "new" jobs have/will be created by superstorm Sandy?

Home Depot sales began to improve in Q3 and should climb dramatically in Q4, same for Lowes and others in the similar businesses.

One quarter million insured vehicles totaled and that many again damaged.

Probably a couple of million (net) new jobs up that way in the long run.

At least two elements are necessary. The first is consumer confidence resulting in increased demand for products. The second is investor confidence in producing a profit as a result of investment.

Government can produce these only by getting out of the way. So, in the present environment, there is little hope.

Forget the Presidency. His brother f*cked that one up. Better yet, Teddy would've made a good Olympic Swimmer. Remember Chappaquiddick?

That's why he drank like a fish and screwed everything in sight.

The point is that Obama, as President, has limited powers and has no right to demand anything.
The negotiation of any deal should be within the Congress, with Obama having the power to accept or reject the final compromise. When Obama states that certain elements are non-negotiable, he exceeds his power.
You psycho right wingers constantly bitch that Obama is not taking ENOUGH leadership and then in the next breath you right wing idiots whine that he should just stand back and WATCH congress. Unbelievable!!!

Gaza and the Polls, the Bad and the Less Bad

Virtually every American political leader has defended the Israeli strikes on Gaza, most notably President Obama. And fans of the Israeli bombing and missile campaign can draw satisfaction from the results of a CNN poll, which indicates that 57 percent of Americans support the Israeli strikes, versus 25 percent who say they are not justified.

Those of us in the minority, inclined to point to things like Israel’s blockade and virtual occupation of Gaza, or that it broke the most recent ceasefire by assassinating a Hamas leader, might refer to some interesting internals in the poll. For instance, 36 percent of Democrats (versus 41 percent) said the Israeli strikes were not justified. This sentiment is held in contradiction, even defiance, of Obama’s own expressed views, which apparently are more in line with what one might expect from a GOP politician.

This is a sign that the vocal defiance of the “All of Jerusalem belongs to Israel” resolution, forced through at the Democratic National Convention, was not a mere one-off; it rests on a solid base of sentiment. As Alana Goodman argues in the above linked article, the days of “bipartisan” support for whatever the heck Israel wants are numbered.

Pay attention to the future,Obama will almost certainly claim
that part of it is Classified,he is on the brink of CYA,even
now to declare the real reason he cannot reveal the truth,and
the reason that Clinton ran away,the reason why Rice lied is
the whole thing is deemed too sensitive for the Public to get
all the facts,therefore its all ;not his FAULT!!!!

SO, UM, AMERICAN MANUFACTURING IS FINALLY FIGURING OUT THAT YOU DON'T NEED A GRAPHICS DIRECTOR TO PRODUCE COLORFUL PLACE-MATS FOR COMPANY EVENTS? GENIUS! PURE GENIUS!
