<quoted text> Bush isn't the problem here..he isn't on the ballot and never will be again! It was Obama who got unemployment past 10 percent and has kept it over 8 percent the whole time he has occupied the white house. Romney will be different from w in that when the reps take over everything, he won't work with the dems and throw in more entitlements like Bush did just to get along.I guarantee Romney cuts spending because we will have to! There is no more money! Why has Obama been so flat? Why are gas prices so high and why has he added 6 trillion to the deficit in 3 years? Why do we have more welfare recipients now than ever before by tens of millions? Why are so many able bodied allowed to go on disability now more than ever? Every thing he has touched is failed! Gm didn't pay back their loans yet he acts like they did and he saved them. They still owe 25 billion! HIS stimulus failed by all credible accounts. He surrendered to a bunch of bandits in Iraq and is on schedule to surrender I'm Afghanistan!this all falls on him! Btw, the real unemployed number is more like 16 percent, another Obama success? Pathetic!
The question was how is Romney any different than Bush. That was your response? Just another half-baked anti Obama rant. Thanks for confirming that you can't answer the question. It appears that your hatred for Obama has clouded your ability to have an honest debate, and your debating skills appear to be limited to ignorant rants. Your ignorance is glaring. I won't embarrass you again by asking you a question you can't answer. Thanks to the Republicans position on unemployment compensation, the number of families on food stamps is at an all time high high, but the number of people receiving welfare checks is at it's lowest in over 20 years. And read what the CBO actually said about the effect of the stimulus package on employment. I would give you a source, but I doubt you have the intellect to interpret the data. Your "Hopeless" moniker suits you well.

welfare at a 20 year low? You are smoking crack like that nut in oak forest! CBO also claimed the obamacare act would be less than a trillion for 6 years but would take 10 years to pay for. CBO can only give reports on the information they are given, they cant dispute the numbers given to them by congress. In this case, Nancy Pelosi. Now that its law and examined it was is determined Obamacare is three Times that! For the same amount of time. That said, you can't make a convincing argument for 4 more years of this failed president! That's okay, neither can he. Obama is responsible for unemployment being over 8 percent for all of his term. He knew all the answers when running but failed! Do you think Michelle will blame Laura for all her mistakes as the first lady when she speaks Tonite? Oh well, blame bushes for Obamas failures! CBO also reports more people living on poverty under Obama than ever before! Do you have jawls like most fat ass lazy public union employees? Do you suffer plumber ass and wear flannel shirts? Do you stink all of the time? Are you on warfare ?If yes, you are a democrat!

Prior to welfare reform, 68 of every 100 poor families with children received cash assistance through AFDC. By 2010, just 27 of every 100 poor families received TANF assistance.
I'm not a mathematician, but that sounds like a decrease to me.

why let a brain get in the way of one of your thoughts? Why did Obama repeal the work requirement for welfare recipients? Todays New record: 46.7 million on food stamps! Up twice as much since the purple lipped one slithered into office! Great job, Obama! Change we need has come! Are you on a break from your do nothing government union job?

Care to cite a source for those figures?

You need to read the requirement changes on welfare work requirements. States are being given the option to implement their own work requirements. Not the same thing as repealing them. Where do get this stuff. If you're going to debate on here, you need to get your facts straight. You can't just pull stuff from your azz. I suppose that's asking a lot from a complete moron.

Keep changing names, i see...I also see that you cant accept that Obama did repeal the work requirement for welfare recipients and did it without the approval of congress!this act to which he did was a clear vioalation of the welfare to work law that clinton and the republicans put into place in 1996. food stamps are welfare, plain and simple!Sounds like your getting a little angry with reality here.The fact is, more people are receiving assistance from the government under this administration more than any other president, ever! Did you see , the National debt hit 16 trillion today?On the day that starts his convention? Conspiracy?What timing? Will he have a running deficit clock? HELL NO! 6 trillion of that is Obama debt and he added that in less than one term! Wow! how is that possible! maybe you should learn how to debate or at least not defend losing positions! Get it? How many Free brats did you eat at the Union Picnic/dem fundraiser yesterday? Did you see Obama couldnt fill the stadium and they had to switch venues? what happened?Where are the jobs? over 8 percent unemployment for 42 straight months! Wow!This is what hope and change looks like? Pull the back of your pants up!

You figured him out pretty quick!

Hopeless never EVER lets facts get in his way of refusing to take any "personal responsibility" at all for his party's screw-ups over the years (unfunded wars kept off the budget books, repeated tax cuts for job outsourcers, underfunded NCLB, a Medicare Part D that only narrowly passed because the real cost was intentionally hidden, etc).

And then he complains about both the national debt and the deficits that the people he voted for had no problem sending through the roof under Dubya!

Notice he wouldn't go anywhere NEAR Paul Ryan's voting record!

Hopeless incessantly talked about Clinton (when he was "the last guy") for 8 years straight when Dubya was in office but doesn't want us to talk about Dubya (now that HE'S "the last guy") after only 3 years of Obama being in office.

Why? Because THEIR "last guy" is the guy they don't want you to talk about anymore so they can keep pretending his 8 years never happened.

He's the same "last guy" who wasn't even invited to their convention.

Apparently he never lets hypocrisy get in the way of a good rant either.

That's why he's "Hopeless".

Hey, at least his name fits, right?

The best part is when he "guarantees" that he's more educated than you are when he doesn't grasp the concept of a percentage or that 27 is a DECREASE from 68.

If you want to see a show, ask him some incriminating questions and watch him spin like a top! But don't bother reading any of his responses - he'll just ignore all your questions and jump from topic to topic and point the finger at everybody else but HIMSELF.

It's a genetic defect that conservatives have - they really can't help it.

Either you can't use a contraction correctly (which isn't surprising since you can't spell or capitalize to save your life) or you think there is more than one God.

A disgrace is not being able to answer ANY of the questions in ANY of my prior posts.

Care to take a shot at answering them?

A disgrace is having "constitutionalist" republicans passing voter ID laws that restrict the constitutional right of people to vote so they can try to win elections.

Care to tell why voter fraud is being committed by REPUBLICANS - the very same party that wants to stop it so badly?

A disgrace is House repukes trying THIRTY THREE times to stop Obamacare and not succeeding.

Maybe that's not a disgrace ... maybe it's just repukes in FULL PANIC MODE!

Which is it?

So I take it you don't want to tell us who the drunk guy doing all that shouting was?

Or tell us what's up with the FOURTH incident of repukes getting busted for the exact thing they say they're trying to prevent - voter fraud?

Or discuss Ryan's voting record or hypocrisy? Or answer any of the TEN questions I asked you about Ryan?

Or talk about Akin's comments and their negative consequences on the GOP?

Or acknowledge your lying, homophobe, POS Republican hero Andrew Shirvell and his $4.5 million federal defamation, stalking, intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy verdict?

Or discuss U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder?

Or Romney's tax fraud or medicare fraud?

Or tell us why Fox News outed the name and town of a Seal that is getting death threats?

Or tell us why Romney's racist comment about "shackles" wasn't racist but Biden's comment about "chains" was?

Or tell us why the federal appeals court in Washington struck down the Texas voter ID law and Texas lawmakers' plans for new congressional and state legislative districts?

Or discuss all the hypocrisy of the "We Built That" lie that your 2012 convention was based on?

Or discuss the federal bailout that saved Mitt "Anti-Bailout" Romney?

Hmmm ...

OK ... well, maybe you'll want to discuss the lie about Obama's OUTRAGEOUS spending then?

Here's some links to help you out:

Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower? Would You Believe It's Barack Obama?
http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/05...

and

Obama spending binge never happened
http://articles.marketwatch.com/2012-05-22/co...

Why is Obama LAST in that graph "Slowest spending in decades"?

And why does Reagan, Bush II and Bush I have a stranglehold on the top three HIGHEST-SPENDING spots there?

Why do you people conveniently forget that the first year of every presidential term starts with a budget approved by the previous administration and Congress?

And why do you negligible IQ morons not mention that the spending under Obama's first year - where federal spending rose by 17.9% from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion - occurred under DUBYA'S last fiscal year?

Did you not know this? Or were you blatantly being dishonest to try to hide from taking any "PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY" whatsoever for the all the spending you guys voted for?

Any answers for us here?

ANY AT ALL?

easy,huh? Will Obama brag about the 6trillion he added to our debt in less than one term? Will he brag about the record amount of welfare recipients he put on the governments rolls? Well, will he even talk about the millions of less jobs there are since he got into office? Will he even talk about the national debt and the damage that he has done? He counts on ignorant dependants like yourself,probably at your low skill, public sector union job that pays you to be rude and watch the walls! Where are the jobs, tubby? He can't run a campaign on birth control, abortion and gay marriage. But what else does he have? Umemployment at
8.3 percent for now more than 42 months! This is all on him. Where are the real jobs? Not temp ones that pay little with no benefits! Pull the back of your pants up and get back to work!

Well another 365,000 joined the ranks of the unemployed this last week. This is 3 1/2 year's into this guys term. Wait for tomorrows jobs numbers. Most of these jobs will be not only part time, but temporary and low waged! How many people will be all out eliminated to keep the unemployment number at 8.3 or even lower. There are no jobs! Biden was out promising up to
500,000 jobs a month if they passesd the stimulus package in 09. Remember, the so called "summer of recovery"? That was 3 years ago! There are no jobs and he has added 6 trillion in debt on his watch! Looks like Obama got frightened and moved his venue for his speech. Turns out, he couldn't come any where near filling that outdoor stadium. They claim because of weather but the forecast calls for less than 20% chance of rain today and 0% by speech time! Oh well, they were working on getting it filled for weeks and realised it wasnt possible on Monday. Can I get a 2/3 rds I? Laughable!
