If Romney chooses former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty as his running mate, one issue that will come up quickly is the 75 cent per pack "health impact fee" on cigarettes he pushed for and got. This was plainly a tax increase, something Pawlenty had promised not to do. By not calling it a tax, he hoped to be able to claim he hadn't raised taxes. But for conservatives who are against tax increases, raising taxes and calling them fees is not what they had in mind. This whole business is like the old child's riddle: "How many legs would a mule have if you called the tail a leg?" Answer: "Four. Calling the tail a leg doesn't make it a leg." Calling a tax something else doesn't somehow make it not a tax.

Earlier this year President Obama said he would not deport young illegals who were brought to the U.S. as children, have never been in trouble with the law, and who have either completed high school or have an honorable discharge from the Armed Forces. Now the program is coming into action. As of Aug. 15, the forms to apply for the program will be available online. No doubt during September and October many young Latinos will be busy filling out the applications. While they can't become citizens and can't vote, many of them surely have relatives and friends who are U.S. citizens and are very happy with this new program. An interesting question is what Mitt Romney says about it. Probably he will try to avoid answering questions about it, but if he is asked point blank during one of the debates whether he would continue the program if he is elected President, it will be tricky to find an answer that satisfies both Latinos and his own base.

“Nobody is satisfied.”

Explaining his vision of job creation, Obama said that if the country hired new teachers those new teachers could go to restaurants and spend money.

“Look, nobody is satisfied with our pace of growth,”

Obama said Thursday in Leesburg, Va.

“Nobody is satisfied.”

If construction workers had more money, they might buy new cars, the president said.

If we had new teachers, they could go out to restaurants and eat.

In January 2009, the month Obama was inaugurated, the national unemployment rate was 7.8 percent.

That month, Obama's top economic adviser, Christina Romer, published a report predicting that unemployment would not exceed 8 percent if Congress enacted Obama's stimulus plan.

Congress did enact that plan and Obama signed it on Feb. 17, 2009.

Since then, the unemployment rate has been above 8 percent for 42 straight months

(February 2009 through July 2012).

When Barack Obama took over the presidency on Jan. 20, 2009, the economy was hemorrhaging jobs. After the stimulus bill was passed and went into effect, the rate of job loss slowed down but still 4.3 million jobs were lost in the first 13 months of Obama's presidency. Since then, jobs have started to come back. Every month since Feb. 2010 jobs have been added to the economy, albeit not enough to get unemployment under 8%. Since Obama took office, 4 million new jobs have been added, so there is still a small net loss. Nevertheless, with three jobs reports due before the election, there is about an even chance that there will be a net jobs gain for Obama's term. Of course it will be nothing like the 23 million jobs added during Bill Clinton's two terms but Clinton took over during a far more positive economic climate

This weekend, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney launched on attack an the Obama campaign that is unambiguously based on a lie. On his Facebook page, Romney posted a note directly accusing the re-election effort of working to undermine the voting rights of military members in Ohio:

President Obama’s lawsuit claiming it is unconstitutional for Ohio to allow servicemen and women extended early voting privileges during the state’s early voting period is an outrage. The brave men and women of our military make tremendous sacrifices to protect and defend our freedoms, and we should do everything we can to protect their fundamental right to vote. I stand with the fifteen military groups that are defending the rights of military voters, and if I’m entrusted to be the commander-in-chief, I’ll work to protect the voting rights of our military, not undermine them.

The background is that, while all Ohio voters used to enjoy in-person early voting privileges for three days, Republicans in the state legislature this year restricted that right to military members only. The Obama campaign subsequently filed a lawsuit asking that the privileges be extended to all voters:

Plaintiffs bring this lawsuit to restore in-person early voting for all Ohioans during the three days prior to Election Day—a right exercised by an estimated 93,000 Ohioans in the last presidential election. Ohio election law, as currently enacted by the State of Ohio and administered by Defendant Ohio Secretary of State, arbitrarily eliminates early voting during the three days prior to Election Day for most Ohio voters, a right previously available to all Ohio voters.

"The people of America recognize that the slowdown in jobs that occurred during the early years of the Bush administration were the result of a perfect storm. And an effort by one candidate to somehow say,'Oh, this recession and the slowdown in jobs was the the fault of President Bush-- people in America just dismiss that as being poppycock."

OSCAR-WINNING PRODUCER PRESENTS '2016':

INVESTIGATIVE OBAMA DOCUMENTARY

Director Steven Spielberg, who donated more than $87,000 to the Democratic Party in the last election cycle, has a co-producer who feels a little differently than he does about President Barack Obama.

Meet Gerald R. Molen:

Spielberg’s co-producer on Hollywood blockbusters such as "Schindler’s List," "Jurassic Park" and "Minority Report."

Molen is the driving force behind “2016,” a documentary -- based on "The Roots of Obama's Rage," a book written by Dinesh D'Souza -- about President Obama scheduled to hit theaters this summer.

Molen promises, that like D'Souza's book, the film will take viewers deep into the heart and mind of our president, a leader he contends is unique in the course of our nation’s history because of his far-left radical views.

Traditional liberals, D’Souza explained, only want to redistribute wealth within America.

Obama, he says, wants to redistribute America’s power among smaller nations throughout the world.

Why?

D’Souza explained that Obama is literally trying to fulfill the title of his book,“Dreams from My Father.”

Obama’s father, who was Kenyan, viewed the world from an anti-Colonial perspective.

Molen says Obama now wants to use his power as the American president to rid the world of colonialism … starting with downsizing the very power of the U.S.A.

Let us take a step back from Willard Romney's Excellent European Adventure -- I can't wait until he gets to Poland and asks three people to change a lightbulb -- and, now that's he's outside of the country, let's take stock of the campaign he has presented to the Help in his attempt to become CEO of the United States Of Capital Gains, LLC. He has based his campaign on two-and-a-half pillars: 1) his experience at Bain Capital and general economic awesomeness; 2) his stewardship of the 2002 Winter Olympics in the middle of nowhe...er...Salt Lake City, and 3) his brief sojourn as governor of the Commonwealth (God save it!) of Massachusetts.(That's the half-a-pillar, by the way.) Of course, the Help is only allowed a very limited assessment of all two-and-a-half pillars. The Help can't really judge fully his performance at Bain because The Help is not entitled to see any more financial documents than he's already released. The Help can't really judge fully his performance with the Olympics because a whole bunch of documents went into the shredder. And the Help can't really judge fully his time as governor because he and his staff scarfed the hard drives from a whole bunch of computers at the State House in the aftermath of his barely distinguishable leadership. That is his whole campaign theme: Mitt Romney: Take It Or Leave It.

Willard is CORRUPT, and he's hiding a lot of skeletons in that closet.

If Mitt Romney can't prove his boasts about his own job creation record, neither can he justify his blatant lie about President Obama's:

"25 million people are out of work because of Barack Obama. And so I'll compare my experience in the private sector where, net-net, we created over 100,000 jobs."

"I'll compare that record with his record, where he has not created any new jobs."

Sadly for Mitt Romney, the Bush recession began in December 2007. As ThinkProgress rightly noted, "The private sector has added 2.3 million new jobs since March 2010, and it took the Obama economy one year to create more jobs than the economy under President Bush did in eight." As The Economist explained earlier, the recession was not at its deepest just as Barack Obama was entering office, but far worse than official statistics revealed at the time. Romney might also want to check with former McCain economic adviser Mark Zandi as well as the non-partisan CBO, who concluded that the Obama stimulus program "added up to 0.9 million jobs in 2009, 3.3 million jobs in 2010 and 2.6 million jobs in 2011."

Obama's Debt Exceeds All Previous Presidents Combined

Mitt Romney didn't just lie about Barack Obama's jobs record. At the Sioux City debate, he got President Obama's contribution to the federal debt all wrong as well:

"We all understand that the spending crisis is extraordinary, with $15 trillion now in debt, with a president that's racked up as much debt as almost all of the other presidents combined."

Of course, we don't all understand that, because it's not true. After Ronald Reagan tripled the gross national debt and George W. Bush doubled it again, Uncle Sam's red ink totaled almost $11 trillion when Barack Obama took the oath of office.
