""Romney On Whether We’re Better Off:‘Of Course It’s Getting Better’
...When President Obama took office, the economy was shedding 800,000 jobs per month and contracting at a rate of 8.9 percent. As Time’s Michael Grunwald noted, at that pace,“we would have shed the entire Canadian economy in 2009.” Literally four years ago, in September 2008, the U.S. was gripped by financial panic.
Investment banks were failing, mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship, and the groundwork was being laid for the Bush administration’s $700 billion bailout of the financial system." TP
That is the first thing Romney has said that was not a blatant, pathological lie.
See, he admits that things are getting better. So just tell the Republsicum Congress to stop trying to derail the economy and let's get to 6% unemployment post haste.
Ignoramous,

We can get your persective on MSNBC.

Reality is so inconvenient for you that live lives of dependency.

Your Messianic Leader is an abysmal failure......deal with it.

You Newspeakers will never convince those that sustain you as a Dependent, that black is white, or that up is down.

23 million Americans are out of work.....Thw awful truth about the Policies of your Messiah's handlers!

Go away!

Are you really that stupid? We had six productive and successful years under Bush. How many have we had under DumBama? NONE!

How did Bush do it? Tax cuts, that's how.

Keep trying to win elections by what Ryan said he ran in a marathon or Romney cutting some kids hair in high school back in the 60's. You liberals have such damning information to support your Socialist who befriended racist preachers, real estate friends in jail, and domestic terrorists. Yeah, that's a real challenging comparison. Hey, what ever happened to DumBama hiring an independent prosecutor to investigate Fast and Furious? Oh, that's right, he never did that. Instead, he protected him. I'm sure the family of the federal agent who was killed was delighted to hear that.

But if Republicans dare bring that up, all the Democrats have to do is bring up how much Romney contributed to his IRA. That should win DumBama reelection.

Government workers may THINK they are better off now BUT for the fact that there isn't enough money in the USA to allow them to be employed for very long.

Eastwood mistakenly said that 23 million Americans are "unemployed." Actually, the figure is a little more than half that — 12.8 million in July, according to the most recent figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Ignoramous,

2/3 of the National Debt came from 200 + years as a Nation......

The last 1/3 came from your Messiah via his Handlers in the Legislative Branch (You know the Legislative branch, those that are supposed to make Law, and spend money. Well that was the Constitutional Requirement before the Dictatorial Handlers of your Messiah started having him make law with his pen, Executive Order).

Please! you are to ignorant to vote....choose to stay home!

I'm sure that figure didn't include those who quit looking for work. Just like the unemployment numbers.

No nonsense about it. There are several unemployment figures, but the one they like to focus on is the actual amount of people looking for work that don't have a job.

There are about 315 million people in this country. 8% of 315 million is 25.2 million. Okay, we can't include senior citizens, disabled or children. So there are much more than that who are not working.

As a member of the investor class, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has benefited directly from one of the few developments under Obama that has been unambiguously positive. That means Romney is now running against policies that have helped make him even richer.

One thing Obama can genuinely crow about is a vigorous stock market rally during his first three-and-a-half years. From the day Obama took office, the S&P 500 stock index has risen by 64 percent. From a low point a couple of months after Obama's inauguration, in March 2009, it has soared by 110 percent.

A rising stock market helps most Americans, because it makes companies healthier and more likely to hire, helps build up pensions and retirement funds, and boosts overall confidence. But most of all, it helps stockholders, since their investments rise in value. And Mitt Romney's investments seem to have benefited as much as anybody's from the revived stock market.
