This is, of course, false.

Obama can with without Ohio AND Florida.

Romney can't win if he loses either one of them.

But more importantly, Romney isn't winning Ohio.

Obama Administration Mandates Oil Firms Hire Sea Turtle Observers

( CNSNews.com )- The Department of Interior (DOI) is requiring private oil companies to hire marine mammal and sea turtle monitors if the companies are granted a lease to drill offshore.

A marine mammal observer’s job is to watch for whales, dolphins, and similar sea creatures and to advise on minimizing the underwater noise created by offshore drilling, which can affect the sea mammals.

This just in: Mitch McConnell just committed himself to making Obama only a two term president.
For three years they held back their spending and investment to deliberately keep employment lagging and make the Democrats and President Obama look bad, but they couldn't help themselves from pouring all that money into election Super PAC's chasing the idea that they could actually win this. Now all those campaign contributions flowing into the system (not to mention those of ours to counter them) are juicing the economy just like a government stimulus would.

are juicing the economy just like a government stimulus would.

.
.

In February, the Congressional Budget Office published its latest report on the "estimated impact" of the stimulus.

Although it had originally estimated the stimulus would cost $787 billion, CBO now says it will cost $831 billion.

In the second quarter of 2012, CBO estimates, somewhere between 200,000 to 1.2 million people have jobs they otherwise would not have were it not for the stimulus.

Assuming, optimistically, that the number is 1.2 million, that means each of those jobs cost taxpayers $692,500.

As time goes on, the maximum number of jobs sustained by Obama's stimulus will decline rapidly.

By the first quarter of 2013, it will sustain between 100,000 and 600,000 jobs, says CBO.

If it is 600,000, each of those jobs will have cost taxpayers $1,385,000.

By the fourth quarter of 2013, the maximum number of jobs it sustains will be 400,000 — at a cost to taxpayers of $2,077,500 per job.

It is true that Obama entered office in the midst of a deep recession.

But, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, that recession ended in June 2009, almost three years ago.

!LOL!

How clueless are you to call that meager job creation number "not bad"? Don't answer. We know.

One economist estimates that 126,920 monthly new jobs are needed just to keep up with the population growth.

130,000 jobs created in October
-126,920 jobs needed stay even w/population growth
--------
3080 net jobs created
/50 states
========
62 average jobs created per state or 2 new jobs per state per day.

WOW! That Obama jobs 'recovery' is stunningly inadequate and inept.

ANOTHER reason to dump that under-skilled, bonehead Obama.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Anyone who has ever worked in sales, whether retail or wholesale, has watched a competent salesperson sell nearly anything if there is something in a product to appeal to consumers. Of course, there are some consumers that can be sold lousy products if they have brand loyalty, and it is equally true in politics. That explains why Republican loyalists vote against their own best interests and it is especially true in a general election. There is a large segment of the population who will oppose President Obama based on his race, or because Republicans portray him as a foreigner transforming America into a socialist state, so they will never be sold on positive job growth or economic recovery under this President’s leadership.

However, as the President’s poll numbers are climbing, discouraged Republicans are beginning to blame the Romney campaign’s incompetence for his inability to sell himself and the Party’s agenda to usher in an era of economic prosperity. Some Republicans claim, quietly, that Romney’s inept campaign is hurting down ticket candidates, but they are missing an important point; it is not Romney’s incompetent campaign, it is the Republican agenda.

The results of a Bloomberg news poll that show Romney’s disapproval rating is higher than former president George W. Bush are an indictment of both Romney and Bush. Most Americans rightly blame Bush for the Great Recession and slow recovery from Republican economic malfeasance and policies that tanked the economy and started two Mideast wars, and his high disapproval rating (49 percent) bears that out. Romney’s unfavorable rating came in at 50 percent and his favorable rating, 43 percent, was lower than Bush’s at 46 percent and it proves that Americans are paying attention to the Romney campaign’s message that a victory in November will be a return to Bush policies that sent America into an economic spiral President Obama has turned around.

For nearly a year, Republican leaders in Congress bemoaned the tax burden on the wealthy and complained it is unfair that half the population is too poor to pay income taxes, so Romney’s remedy is slashing programs like Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and Veteran’s benefits while raising taxes on the poor and middle class to relieve the wealthiest 2 percent’s misery. Regardless who runs Romney’s campaign, it is impossible to sell a candidate, a party, or an agenda that is openly hostile to half the population and promises to exceed Bush’s malfeasance by not only repeating his policies, but increasing the burden on 98% of the population to reward the so-called “jobs creators.”

The middle class, and especially the poor, face drastic cuts to programs in Paul Ryan’s budget and every Republican has given their stamp of approval including Willard Romney who stands to gain immeasurably if his tax rate is reduced. It is the ultimate inequity that while tens-of-millions of Americans are barely putting food on the table and a roof over their family’s heads, Republicans want to take even more to enrich the wealthy. While the rich are getting richer, most Americans struggle to survive from paycheck to paycheck, and if they are not paying income taxes, it is most certainly because they are at or below the poverty level. One has to ponder; what will it take for Republicans to stop stealing from the poor to give to the rich? Apparently, it will take every American handing over everything they own to the wealthy, and then it may not be enough to satisfy the Republicans.

The wealthy have to start sharing the sacrifice the rest of the population is making for the good of the entire country, but since the start of the 112th Congress Republicans burdened the poor and middle class with all the sacrifices to pay for the wealthy’s entitlements and it is still not enough to satisfy Republicans. To claim it is unfair for the rich to go without all the wealth is beyond egregious; it a twisted philosophy that establishes the GOP’s plutocracy.

The Republican’s economic gurus like Paul Ryan and his Path to Prosperity budget adds $4.6 trillion to the nation’s debt with tax cuts for the rich, Draconian cuts to social safety nets, and tax increases on the poor and middle class. Willard Romney’s grand plan increases the debt by $3.4 –$5 trillion with tax cuts for the wealthy coupled with revenue losses of $180 billion annually that includes eliminating middle class tax credits (tax increases) for earned income and child tax credits, and college tuition deductions. Romney also includes a 60% tax increase on the poor who earn under $20,000 annually to help relieve the burden from the wealthy who have yet to create jobs. However, raising taxes on the poor and middle class are not Republican’s only means of lifting the burden off the wealthy.

Paul Ryan and Willard Romney plan to put more burden on the privileged poor to relieve the wealthy’s suffering by making drastic cuts to social safety nets such as food stamps, housing and heating assistance, and healthcare because apparently, the 50 million elderly, children, and poor who barely survive on food stamp assistance is too much for the wealthy to suffer and the savings will relieve their tax burden and help inspire them to create jobs as well as reduce the nation’s debt with the trillions in tax cuts. Romney is particularly interested in taking the burden off the wealthy and his tax plan will cost the government about $5 trillion in forgone revenue over the next decade on top of the cost of extending the Bush-era tax cuts scheduled to expire Dec. 31.

The Republicans’ blissful ignorance of the plight of the poor is stunning, and with 46.2 million Americans living in poverty, and America’s number two ranking in child poverty, they are determined to add to those numbers in an effort to relieve the suffering of the wealthiest 2% of income earners. However, the American people are not entirely convinced that giving the wealthy more tax breaks is the optimum means of reducing the nation’s debt and rebuilding the economy.

For the past two years, Americans overwhelmingly favor raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans and corporations to assuage the deficit and create jobs as President Obama has proposed, but Republicans have adhered to their unconstitutional Grover Norquist anti-tax pledge of never raising taxes or eliminating tax loopholes; except when they affect the poor and middle class. Eric Cantor rejects tax increases on the wealthy, but supports raising taxes on the poor to give the wealthy relief and help struggling families understand the need to start contributing to job creators for deficit reduction and economic growth.

It is unclear how Republicans reconcile raising taxes on the poor when most fall under the US Poverty level of $22,350 annually for a family of four, but they must be privy to a metric unknown to most reasonable human beings. Perhaps it is part of the Willard Romney belief that $22,350 is well above his “great middle class income” of $19,900 annually, and with a tax increase of 60%, the poor will still be living the great American dream of “middle class status.” Or it is likely that Republicans are on pace to transform America into the “Chinese model” where a dollar-a-day is the prevailing wage and environmental regulations become a thing of the past to encourage corporations to return to America to rape what is left of the economic life from the nation.

There are few words to describe the Republican’s Draconian attitude that the privileged poor are draining resources from the wealthy who are inordinately burdened and struggling to survive. It should be abundantly clear by now that Republicans will, if they control both Congress and the White House, give the wealthy and their corporations the last vestiges of wealth from the poor and middle class. The simple fact that they are openly talking about raising taxes on those least able to survive one more assault informs their contempt for the great majority of American people who have made their voices heard that raising taxes on the wealthy is not only a means of reducing the deficit, but necessary to create jobs and grow the economy. But that is the entire issue in a nutshell. Republicans have no more intention of creating jobs or growing the economy than they do helping the American people and to think otherwise is folly. For Mitch McConnell to go on a major network news program and express the Republican ideology that the that the poor needed to lift the burden from the wealthy was a watershed moment that gives Romney, Ryan, and Cantor all the support they need to proceed transforming America into a third world nation of peasants existing to support a few hundred wealthy families.

Tea Party members often say that they want to restore fiscal responsibility, but when President George W. Bush approved the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and said the free market must be abandoned to preserve the free market, where were they? Why did the Tea Party only emerge a month after President Barack Obama took office?
