You cant dispute the facts:
Even with today’s disappointing and troubling jobs report, private sector job creation under President Obama has far exceeded private sector job creation under President Bush. 40 months into his presidential term, there are currently more private sector jobs in the economy than when Obama came into office. At the same point in President Bush’s term, the total number of private sector jobs was still down 1.7 percent from where it began.
The numbers are even starker when measuring each president’s record from the moment job creation returned. Private sector job creation returned in February of 2010, the 13th month of President Obama’s term. Since then, the economy has added 4.3 million private sector jobs, a 4 percent increase

Ouch that has got to sting. Even with all the obstructionism from the right President Obama is still managing to improve the economy.
From Bloomberg, Jan 2009:
"The U.S. is in the grip of a bad recession, but let's not scare ourselves silly by making things seem worse than they really are. Headlines blared "worst since 1945" on Jan. 9 after the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced the U.S. economy lost 524,000 jobs in December and 2.6 million for 2008 as a whole".
How has Obama done on jobs in just his first term? As of Jan 2012.
“Twenty-two straight months of job growth; 3.1 million jobs added.”.
Obama stepped into office with two wars ongoing, an economy in meltdown a loss of 524k jobs the month before he took o...ffice and budget debt of $4.89 Trillion.
For perspective. How did Bush do in 2 terms? From WSJ Jan 2009.
“The Bush administration created about three million jobs (net) over its eight years.”.
Bush stepped into office with no wars a booming economy and a budget surplus of $320+ billion.
So 69k jobs added in month is really not a “disaster”… given what President Obama has had to deal with.
Romney is using scare tactics on the campaign trail,it's not working......Mutt is up against the wall no where to go,,,,,,,,,This is what desperation will do.....lie, flip flop,scare the public,,,,,,,,,,too late Mutt ,the more you talk the more you turn people off. It was just a matter of time before your lies caught up to you.....

Obama/Romney - blah - does it really matter?
More police state, more federal power grabs, less civil rights, more foreign intervention, OBAMNEYCARE, less good jobs, decreasing wages, decreasing middle class, record poverty, TSA, Patriot Act, NDAA -
This is what either of these two will 'give' to America.
And some people think there is a 'choice'... LMAO!

When all the possible scenarios to win 270 electoral votes are calculated, Mitt Romney wins less than 1 time in 5.
Less than 1 in 5! LMAO!
#41059 Nov 2, 2012
Desperate, danny BOY? You're perspiring.
The fear of Obama being lame duck! Your wet dream over!
Think of it, BOY.
Or go find another poll to distract yourself from that possibility.
#41060 Nov 2, 2012
Well, danny boy, now you're sweating.
Hearing the footsteps?
Go find another wishful poll, BOY.

Time to impeach Governor Corbett.
He is a criminal, didn't want to prosecute Sandusky because that would have wrecked his run for the Governor.
#41062 Nov 2, 2012
BINGO....hold your cards
Talk about nailing it
Dan, you're one insightful individual...and I agree with this assertion about the wingnut baggers....
Bizzaro world in all its glory._full of distorted views that they absorb as truth because it conviently fits their inherent bias and predjudices.
Not hard to understand I guess its fairly obvious but I think the upcoming Romney fiasco will break their spirit and may fragment them even more.
But thanks for the insightful perspective of these wonderful nutjobs.
#41063 Nov 2, 2012
The President's numbers keep climbing.
Those two polls last week that over-sampled Republicans were just an aberration.
The President's right on track for another landslide victory.

UAW Wants Romney To Disclose $15 Million Auto Bailout Profit:
BY Laura Matthews | November 01 2012 3:53 PM
It seems Republican nominee Mitt Romney still cannot shake the demons of the auto industry bailout he supposedly opposed, and a new one looks like it may well haunt him just days before the Presidential election.
The biggest auto workers' union and several government and public interest groups say that they have filed an ethics complaint against Romney, alleging “serious conflicts of interest” and calling for the presidential nominee to release information about what they say are millions he made from the industry bailout. At issue are alleged investments the Romneys made in a hedge fund that owned a controlling interest in Delphi Auto, the former GM auto parts division.
Through the money that the federal government provided to prop up the automakers and their suppliers, Delphi received huge payments -- ultimately $12.9 billion in taxpayer subsidies -- and the hedge fund that the Romneys had invested in received a significant return, according to published reports
Through the money that the federal government provided to prop up the automakers and their suppliers, Delphi received huge payments -- ultimately $12.9 billion in taxpayer subsidies -- and the hedge fund that the Romneys had invested in received a significant return, according to published reports.
The United Automobile Workers, or UAW, announced that it is calling upon the Office of Government Ethics to investigate Romney for alleged noncompliance with the Ethics in Government Act. They also want that authority to force the nominee to either “disclose his investments or divest them.”
The UAW has been joined by liberal watchdog groups such as Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, People for the American Way and The Social Equity Group, among others in the letter of complaint.
This guy is an all around walking colostomy bag with ears

Forget the Middle Class, It's Elite vs. Elite :
While all the television ads are about the middle class and who loves it more, the reality is a bit different. As Deepthroat told reporter Bob Woodward some 40 years ago: "Follow the money." In 2008, Wall Street bankers were divided between John McCain and Barack Obama, but this year they have come down clearly on the side of Mitt Romney. The five biggest sources of donations to Romney's campaign this year are Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, and Wells Fargo, all giant financial institutions( that were bailed out by tax payer money under Bush ) that recognize Romney as one of their own. Clearly an elite group if ever there was one.
How does Obama compete with these financial powerhouses? He does get small donations, but he has his own elite team as well. His consists of people from the tech sector, government, and universities. His five biggest donors are the University of California, Microsoft, Google, government employees, and Harvard. These people made their money by dealing in ideas rather than by moving money around.

Hey danny BOY.
See how ridiculous polls can be?
Did you see that Susquehanna updated their Pennsylvania poll today?
"Susquehanna Polling and Research results for Pennsylvania released today shows Mitt Romney leading President Obama 49% to 45% among 1376 likely voters. Two percent are undecided and 3% are for other candidates.
Wow. How unlikely is THAT, eh BOY, that Obama could possibly lose Pennsylvania. What an impossible catastrophe THAT would be.

I clicked on your link. The Erie County Pennsylvania Republican Party posts some stuff claiming poll numbers.
And yet, they can't even put a link to the Susquehanna Polling to support their claim?
Color me skeptical.

If it's that close where the absentee ballots can swing the election, the lawyers have already been deployed to strategic locations nearby with their motions for any scenario already typed up.

This. It's actually frightening how similar they are in ideology. A one-party system masquerading as two-party, pawns for the corporate and social elite. If you want true change in the nation, actually read into the alternatives beyond Democrat and Republican. Abolishing the 'campaign donations'/bribes and the Super PAC shams needs to happen, but being as they're in the interest of essentially everyone with the influence to get rid of them, it's not happening in the near future.
Men like Jefferson, Madison and Washington are rolling in their graves. The national landscape is a disaster, and I don't mean Sandy's aftermath.
