You bring up a very good point. The recovery has been too tilted to the wealthy. So then why do as Romney is advoating and give the already wealthy more tax breaks to worsen the income disparity in America?
The past recession was different than those faced by previous presidents in one very stark way. Many of the jobs lost are simply not coming back. This is due to globalization and increased automation and productivity. To compete in the future we need a well trained and educated work force, state of the art infrastructure and a manufacturing base fueled by something other tah fossil fuels. None of which Romney is discussing.
Romney's plan to address all that is just more tax cuts for the rich. Nothing more.
Well I totally agree that many of the jobs lost are not coming back due to the reasons you stated. The politicians like to blame big business for this, but in reality it is the politicians fault. NAFTA and giving China most favored nation status are 2 huge reasons major companies are now outsourcing jobs to other countries. They are merely playing by the rules the politicians have set up for them.

I know everybody likes to pick on General Electric, and for good reason. So here we have a major U.S. owned manufacturing company making billions of dollars profit worldwide and does not pay one penny in U.S. Income taxes.
So, what is the solution. Don't you agree that G.E. should be paying U.S. income taxes.

GE should be paying income taxes if they're making income in the U.S.. In 2010 GE made $5,100,000,000 in the U.S. yet paid no income taxes and in fact got a $3,200,000,000 tax credit. In their defense they did pay state, local and payroll taxes.

They also spent $2,700,000 on lobbying.

How about if we implemented a 100% tax on all monies paid to lobbyists that could be offset with each additional non-lobbyist hire?

Well, well, well, after 8 days, obama is finally beginning to realize that his initial assessments of the attacks in Egypt and Libya on Sep 11, 2012 were wrong inspite of prior warnings from Israel, Libya and Egypt. Amazing it took him 8 days to realize the facts. Guess he just can not understand why islamists hate us so much. Guess he thought his policies in the middle east have been successful...not.

"A bump in the road." - Barack Obama, 2012. One U.S. embassador killed, three other U.S. citizens killed. Nearly every embassy in the middle east has seen attacks and/or demonstrations, and obama refers to all of this as "a bump in the road". Will he ever get it? I will answer that. NO! For the love of America people, wake up realize it and admit it, obama is totally, 100% clueless.

So if your daughter (if you have one if not pretend you do)is raped by a black guy and has a resulting ectopic pregnancy you would risk her life by making her carry the baby to term?

That's what you seem to be saying.

"But I don't believe so," he said. "I don't believe there was some smoking gun that was missed leading up to this. And there wasn't that kind of chatter that would lead you to believe that this event was happening on this day with this specific target. I didn't see anything like that. I don't think our intelligence services have." Republican Mike Rogers.
I'll take his word over that of a newspaper with an axe to grind.
And that wall you keep refering was a series of rules that had been in place since the days after Watergate and can be attributed to Reagan, Ford and both Bushes as much as Clinton. That buzz word was Bush and Cheney's way to deflect blame away from themselves and onto the past administration.
Mike Rogers didn't see it because there was nothing there to see because the obama administration failed to do a full threat assessment prior to opening the ambassador's compound.
By the way, how does if feel to have supported obama's remarks concerning the now confirmed TERRORIST ATTACK in Libya? You do know that obama did out and out lie along with our ambassador to the U,N, Lied so bad that it is fact there never was a demonstration prior to the attacks.
It seems like obama just wants to keep sticking his head in the sand, refusing to call radical muslims as terrorists. He wants us all to sit around the camp fire, smoke the peace pipe, sing Kum ba ya together; he just doesn't realize that it will NEVER happen. As long as obama is weak when dealing with islamist fundamental wackos, the world will not be a safe place..not that it ever has been, but it is steadily getting more dangerous due to obama's weak leadership. As bad as his financial policies are, his foreign affairs policies are much more dangerous.

Actually in re-considering, I was wrong. obama is not a weak leader, he is no leader at all.
