You are absolutely shameless in your spin, danny BOY!

Ooops. You forgot to mention that "deficit at four year low" means spending 1.1 TRILLION dollars MORE than the nation has.

After spending money you don't have by charging $1500 on your credit card in May,$1400 more you don't have in June and $1300 you don't have in July, you'd describe charging $1200 you don't have in August as "deficit shrinks by over $100, reaches 4-month low."

LMAO!

Obama has ADDED FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS to the national debt in four years, BOY, and you now claim that's some sort of IMPROVEMENT???

You mirror the Obama's dishonesty in presenting such fiscal irresponsibility as some sort of 'improvement'.

This is, of course, a total lie.

Bush's Recession caused a peak of 10% official unemployment rate in October 2009, and Obama's policies have reduced that to 7.9%.

Bush's Recession caused a peak of 17.2% U6 unemployment rate in October 2009, and Obama's policies have reduced that to 14.6%.

There is no honest way to make the statement that, "The percentage of Americans underemployed or unemployed has NEVER been HIGHER!" It is a bald-faced LIE.

The simple-minded thing is to simply blame Obama for the current deficit.

But intelligent people capable of critical thinking and comprehension of complex concepts can understand that you can't honestly blame someone for something their policies did not create.

ANOTHER lie? LOL! It's like this Repubtard isn't even capable of telling the truth.

Of course, he's just mindlessly parroting Mitt Romney's lie.

----------

Also during the debate, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that 23 million people are out of work in the nation.

"There is suffering in this country," said Romney. "And we talk about evidence. Look at the evidence of the last four years. It's absolutely extraordinary. We've got 23 million people out of work."

The facts:

When the recession began, workers in every category lost jobs, but those in the middle and higher wage groups lost more of them.

And when the jobs started coming back, the lower-wage jobs came back stronger. That means that, while the nation has replaced lost jobs, many of those new jobs pay less than the old ones did.

To reach his 23 million figure, Romney counts everyone who is unemployed, has stopped looking for work or is underemployed -- working for less money than before or able to find only a part-time job.

Conclusion:

Romney is stretching his figures to the breaking point -- which makes his claim false.

Oh, you're calling yourself a "Repubtard" now BOY?

Here, BOY, let me help you understand the difference between the 'deficit' and the 'debt'.

The DEFICIT is the amount of money Obama has spent each year that the nation didn't have. That's totaled about 1.2 TRILLION dollars each year under Obama's 'leadership'.

That is easy to do, isn't it BOY, spending money you don't have.

The DEBT, danny BOY, is the total of all those years of spending money the nation doesn't have.

Obama's incredibly incompetent fiscal 'leadership' has ADDED FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS to the nation's debt.

Obama has whipped out the nation's charge card for five trillion dollars to near zero improvement in the nation's unemployment numbers. he's been on a binge that future generations, in Biden's words,'will put ya'll BACK in chains'.

So he IS capable of learning.

I wonder if he'll learn that his political ideology is a complete failure and has been rejected by the American people when Romney is defeated tomorrow?

I doubt it. His pathological need to delude himself is obviously stronger than his embarrassing ignorance of basic facts and history. Mere education won't help this deluded freak.

Ohio is the battleground of all battlegrounds, the state more than any other that could hold the key to the outcome in the Electoral College on Tuesday. The Columbus Dispatch said Friday that in the final five days before the election, local TV stations would carry an additional 7,000 ads. The Buckeye State has been battered by a decline in manufacturing jobs. But the unemployment rate is now below the national average, and the president’s bailout of the auto industry, whose tentacles stretch into 80 of the state’s 88 counties, has helped spark the recovery — and an intense debate between the candidates. Virtually every public poll taken in the past 10 days shows President Obama with an advantage.

Socialists and leftwingers are still trying to blame the disastrous results of Obama's economic policies on Bush. Why can't Democrats take responsibility for the recent four years of failure? Why are they constantly trying to blame Bush for the results of THEIR policies?

Psst, danny BOY. Obama's been president now for 1400 days. Time to buck-up and accept responsibility for Obama's incompetence and failed executive 'leadership'. Surprise. He has the skills of a community organizer.

The nation has wasted four years waiting on Obama's 'hope and change' to improve the country. So far gays in the military and illegal aliens seem to have benefited the most from Obama's presidency. Americans' personal wealth and yearly income have fallen waiting for Obama to improve things.

Obama has failed. He's a liar. He's incompetent and under skilled. Obama is circling like a turd in the toilet bowl from his own failed policies. Time to give it a flush.

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.

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,

credit history,

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.

Sound crazy?

You bet.

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.
