The state’s high unemployment rate — 11.8 percent in September — coupled with its placement at the epicenter of the nation’s home-foreclosure crisis should make Nevada a prime pickup opportunity for Romney. And yet, in the waning days before the election, both sides acknowledge that Obama retains a lead

IS he capable of learning political ideology ?

I wonder if he'll learn?

Yikes, danny BOY, the simplest of questions befuddle you!
"Why are they constantly trying to blame Obama for the results of THEIR policies?"
The answer to your question is: Obama has been the president for FOUR YEARS and the failed economic policies are OBAMA'S.
It's been 1400 days of Obama's failed presidential 'leadership.'
The failures are HIS, BOY.
Absolutely pathetic in STILL try blaming Bush.

Psst, danny BOY.
In the 1980s, groups such as the activists at ACORN began pushing charges of "redlining" - claims that banks discriminated against minorities in mortgage lending.
In 1989, sympathetic members of Congress got the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act amended to force banks to collect racial data on mortgage applicants;
this allowed various studies to be ginned up that seemed to validate the original accusation.
In fact, minority mortgage applications were rejected more frequently than other applications - but the overwhelming reason wasn't racial discrimination, but simply that minorities tend to have weaker finances.
Yet a "landmark" 1992 study from the Boston Fed concluded that mortgage-lending discrimination was systemic.
That study was tremendously flawed - a colleague and I later showed that the data it had used contained thousands of egregious typos, such as loans with negative interest rates.
Our study found no evidence of discrimination.
Yet the political agenda triumphed - with the president of the Boston Fed saying no new studies were needed, and the US comptroller of the currency seconding the motion.
No sooner had the ink dried on its discrimination study than the
Boston Fed, clearly speaking for the entire Fed, produced a manual for mortgage lenders stating that:
"discrimination may be observed when a lender's underwriting policies contain arbitrary or outdated criteria that effectively disqualify many urban or lower-income minority applicants."
Some of these "outdated" criteria included the size of the mortgage payment relative to income,
savings history and income verification.
Instead, the Boston Fed ruled that participation in a credit-counseling program should be taken as evidence of an applicant's ability to manage debt.
Those "outdated" standards existed to limit defaults.
But bank regulators required the loosened underwriting standards, with approval by politicians and the chattering class.
A 1995 strengthening of the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities.
It also let community activists intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money.
Banks that got poor reviews were punished; some saw their merger plans frustrated; others faced direct legal challenges by the Justice Department.

Obama stopped the flooding and brought the water level down.
The Repubtards like this lying jackass blame Obama for how high the water got.
No matter how you look at it, any honest assessment of actual history shows these asinine attacks to be nothing but bullshit and lies.
President Obama took office in the first quarter of 2009, when median household income was $54,797.63. As of the last quarter of 2011, median household income was $52,377.21.
This was the interval Mr. Zandi suggested using to check Mr. Romney’s statement, and it shows an income drop of $2,420.42. That’s not $3,000, of course, but it’s still pretty bad.
One could also reasonably argue that it might be more appropriate to use the quarter before Mr. Obama took office as the baseline, rather than the quarter in which he was sworn in. In the fourth quarter of 2008, median household income was about $55,380.17.
Starting from that quarter gives us a decline of $3,002.96, almost exactly the number Mr. Romney cited.

It's easy to identify what Obama's accomplished during the past 1400 days...
Four years ago, the economy was shrinking; now it's growing.
Four years ago, the economy was hemorrhaging jobs; now it's gaining jobs.
Four years ago, the unemployment rate was going up; now it's going down.
Four years ago, the stock market was crashing; now it's reaching new heights.
Four years ago, the deficit was getting bigger; now it's getting smaller.
Four years ago, the American auto industry was on the verge of collapse; now it's thriving.
Obama's policies have worked. But the right continues to attack him for the results of their own policies while ignoring the results of Obama's policies.
It's a symptom of their Obama Derangement Syndrome - where they blame Obama for everything bad that happens anywhere in the world while ignoring the fall-out of their own policies.

By every objective measure, the US is better off than when Obama came into office.
The only way to deny that fact is to distort history or blame the President for problems that resulted from Republican policies.

BTW - what evidence are you using to draw this conclusion? Anything beyond your own fervent wishes? Because all the real-world evidence points in exactly the opposite direction.

You keep that racist ignorant tea bag dream alive another four years as president Obama wins again. You should just start screaming voter fraud now or use any other excuse america does not endorse or care about, dumb ass. I know you can do that.

Unemployment in Ohio Feb 2009 10.2%
Unemployment in Ohio Nov 2012 7.1 %
This is why Obama takes Ohio and the 302 electoral votes......

BTW - what evidence are you using to draw this conclusion?
Anything beyond your own fervent wishes?
Because all the real-world evidence points in exactly the opposite direction.
The Weekly Standard:
“On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more,” said Biden.
“My heart breaks, come on man.
You know the phrase they always use?
Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars.
Yes we do in one regard.
We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy.
That’s not a tax raise, that’s called fairness where I come from.”
Ever wonder why there is no job recovery?
With these kind of nut-job comments coming from an Administration that could win another term, no one is going to hire of any substantial amount.

You say this based on what? You're hopes? You're wishes? Your dreams?
Seriously - do you have any evidence at all to support this fantasy?

"War on Poverty" and healthcare reform
In 1964, upon Johnson's request, Congress passed the Revenue Act of 1964 and the Economic Opportunity Act, which was in association with the war on poverty.
Johnson set in motion bills and acts,
creating programs such as
Medicare and Medicaid, which still exist today.
“I’ll have those n**-gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.”
- Lyndon B. Johnson
“These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness.
Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.”
—Lyndon B. Johnson
Dan the Man
African Americans vote at very high rates for Democrats because they like Democratic policies.
That explains almost all of their votes for Obama.
Dismissing their vote as racist is nothing more than a dishonest way to delegitimize Obama's presidency.
