Just going to keep ignoring my point huh...
Mitt Romney Improved job growth in Massachusets is your argument
Unemployment in Massachusetts rose during Romney’s first year from a rate of 5.6 percent in January 2003, when he took office, to a peak of 6.0 percent in mid 2003. It then steadily declined over the remainder of his term, ending at 4.6 percent in January 2007, his last month as governor, for a net improvement in unemployment of 1.0 percent.
far from stellar performance
If your argument was the job growth rate was improving...then we look at obama who raised job growth rate from -800,000 to positive 100,000 for a job growth rate of 900,000....
so your argument is either...Mitt Romney was 47th out of 50 and that is bad in the same way under obama the job rate is over 8%...or Mitt Romney improved from 50th to 26th (most likely because everyone else was hit from the crash) and Obama raised the national job growth rate by 900,000 (a factor of over 100%). So either they're both bad or Romney is just ok compared to the job growth of obama...or you can ignore this and just spout crap...and continue to be a hypocrite because you have no argument...
Really,don't forget that the federal jobs Obama cut,that saved taxpayers money,also counts against him,when figuring the amount of jobs he has created.

Governor Romney and I are about the same age. Like millions of others in our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the Vietnam War. 2.7 million in our age group went to Vietnam, a war which eventually took the lives of 58,000 young Americans and cost another 300,000 wounded. The Marine Corps lost 100,000 killed or wounded in that war. During the year I was in Vietnam, 1969, our country lost twice as many dead as we have lost in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the past 10 years of war. 1968 was worse. 1967 was about the same. Not a day goes by when I do not think about the young Marines I was privileged to lead.

This was a time of conscription, where every American male was eligible to be drafted. People made choices about how to deal with the draft, and about military service. I have never envied or resented any of the choices that were made as long as they were done within the law. But those among us who stepped forward to face the harsh unknowns and the lifelong changes that can come from combat did so with the belief that their service would be honored, and that our leaders would, in the words of President Abraham Lincoln, care for those who had borne the battle, and for their widows and their children.

Those young Marines that I led have grown older now. They’ve lived lives of courage, both in combat and after their return, where many of them were derided by their own peers for having served. That was a long time ago. They are not bitter. They know what they did. But in receiving veterans’ benefits, they are not takers. They were givers, in the ultimate sense of that word. There is a saying among war veterans:“All gave some, some gave all.” This is not a culture of dependency. It is a part of a long tradition that gave this country its freedom and independence. They paid, some with their lives, some through wounds and disabilities, some through their emotional scars, some through the lost opportunities and delayed entry into civilian careers which had already begun for many of their peers who did not serve.

And not only did they pay. They will not say this, so I will say it for them. They are owed, if nothing else, at least a mention, some word of thanks and respect, when a presidential candidate who is their generational peer makes a speech accepting his party’s nomination to be commander-in-chief. And they are owed much more than that — a guarantee that we will never betray the commitment that we made to them and to their loved ones.

Do you live on the same planet the human race lives on?
My God you are as stupid as a human can be.

Obama never cut federal jobs...he added federal jobs...their's more federal employees now then ever before..all due to Obama and his love for unions and socialism.
Obama has never created a single non federal job.His policies has never created a single non federal job.
The government does not create private sector jobs..it only creates federal jobs...and Obama has more goons in those positions then ever before.

WAKE up...This Shi% is not that hard.

Under Obama, a Record Decline in Government Jobs

By FLOYD NORRIS

When Barack Obama ran for president four years ago, he appalled some Democrats by saying Ronald Reagan had been a transformational president.

Three years into his presidency, he has exceeded Reagan in one area: reductions in government jobs.

FLOYD NORRIS

Notions on high and low finance.
.
Over all — including a decline of 12,000 public sector jobs in the Labor Department report for December — government employment is down 2.6 percent over the last three years, compared to a decline of 2.2 percent in the early Reagan years. That is a record.
Oops

Taxmageddon: 2013 Massive Tax Hikes on the Horizon

Blame it on Bush
Obama Tax Increase

Cicero, NY

#11291 Sep 28, 2012
Taxmageddon Is Huge
&#9632;Unprecedented Tax Hike For 2013: Starting January 1, 2013, Americans will face a $494 billion tax increase, the highest ever in one year. Obamacare’s tax increase over 10 years barely edges ahead of Taxmageddon at $502 billion. The average American household would see its taxes rise by $3,800 in 2013 alone. And this is just for one year. Taxpayers would see even higher tax hikes in succeeding years.
&#9632;Expiring Tax Cuts and Obamacare’s New Taxes: Almost 34% of the tax increases from Taxmageddon come from the expiration of the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts. Another 25% comes from the expiration of the payroll tax cut. Most of the remaining increases come from Obamacare, notably from the start of the hospital insurance 3.8% surtax on all forms of income over $250,000.
&#9632;Taxmageddon Hits the Middle Class: Taxmageddon falls primarily on middle- and low-income Americans. That’s because 60 percent of the Bush tax cuts went to middle and low-income taxpayers. The expiration of the patch on the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) will cause these taxpayers to pay a tax they were never supposed to be hit with, and the expiration of the payroll tax cut is a tax hike almost exclusively on middle- and low-income families. That’s just the direct impact. Americans at all income levels will feel the pain of Taxmageddon because it will slow job creation and wage growth.

You have to be stupid,when you don't realize Obama had to spend huge sums to fix the deep,deep,hole Bush 2s policies put us in.Was he to do nothing,to stop the economy from going over the cliff to which bush 2 and the spend,spend,spend repukes had driven it.It takes a special kind of stupid to not realize that Obamas' actions didn't occur in a vacuum.

It was the republicans that wanted this grand bargain ,they figured the dems would back down,and cut only prograsms the reps wanted cut.Well the dems called their bluff,and said we aren't giving in.You repukes put this on the table and insisted on it.So now that the dems aren't rolling over,tits up to the bullying repukes.The repukes and their moronic followers are having fits,and trying to evade blame for the disaster they not only created but insisted on.They found out that the dems had a spine and had had enough of repukes threats.So be careful what you ask for,you just might get it.Now be a man and take personal responsibility for what you and your repukes wanted.
