Neither have I.

you did not read that job report closely did you ?
If you read better and had reading comprehension skills you would have diserned that it takes 150,000 new jobs a month just to break even with attrition of jobs....
and the report clearly showed that the average for 3 months in a row was new job creation of only average of 75,000
THATS A NET LOSS of an AVERAGE OF 75,000 JOBS a MONTH for 3 months in a row, including JULY.....

Barack Hussein Obama was the first presidential candidate to raise more than $100 million in a month and in 2008 was the first to forgo public money for his campaign. Now, he faces the very real threat of being the first president to be outspent.
-
Tacky wedding gift donations, loser dinner date donations and lotteries.. Sellout and begging for donations... The Poison of Liberalism...
-
I will be the first incumbent president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, Obama wrote to supporters recently.
-
Many bought into hope and change and they're not getting it. There's some buyers' remorse, jumping ship like drowning rats abandoning a sellout NO Hope and NO change obama...
-
Obama demonized Wall Street bankers and they responded by closing their wallets. He also has called on wealthier Americans to pay more in taxes a hardly an inspiration to donate, his advisers concede.
-
For some of his most liberal supporters, he has not done enough to promote stronger unions or tougher environmental laws. A sellout for most causes...
-
And, unlike four years ago, Obama is not campaigning as an optimistic vessel of hope and change.
-
Never before has an incumbent president failed to outraise a challenger, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a campaign finance watchdog. In Obama's record-setting 2008 campaign, he made history in September by raising $150 million.

Meanwhile, life is good in Communist China, where the business environment isn't so Communist...

The Obama administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in our lifetime...

Jon Stewart took his turn piling on Mitt Romney for his disastrous start to his overseas tour, where he managed to insult everyone and their grandmother from the Olympic committee to politicians on both sides of the aisle in the UK.

I'm guessing he's saving going after Mittens debut in Israel for Tuesday's show.

Nearly 12 years after Clinton left office, Bill Clinton remains one of our most popular, wealth makers and compelling Presidents.
-
Verses the amateur create more poor obama campaign, hating on wealth makers, hate on the middleclass creating more poor...
-
The convention role being given Bill Clinton is proof that Obama is in deep trouble and he and his political handlers know it. If obama had a ten point lead or more over Romney, Bill Clinton would not be the Super Star doing Obama's speech and more...
-
This is a Hail Mary of politics. Bill Clinton will accomplish and remind voters exactly how amateur a leader and failed president, Obama really is.
-
Voters will become nostalgic with Bill, now knowing obama is lacking in everything, obama a no comparator to Bill..
-
Clinton's super star speech will remind people that an amateur Obama is NOT a wealth maker neither a success maker and NOT a Bill Clinton when it comes to the economy, jobs, success and wealth making in America....
-
Bill Clinton will steal the show, continuously reminding the unconscious4life libtards, what a sellout and amateur obama really is and more..

It's the culture...

In an interview with ABC News, Mitt Romney was asked whether he'd ever paid less than the 13.9% tax rate he paid in 2010. "I haven't calculated that. I'm happy to go back and look, but my view is I've paid all the taxes required by law," Romney said. A 13.9% rate falls far below the norm for incomes approaching the $20.1 million he made in 2010.
http://www.drudge.com/news/159440/low-did-rom...
His effective tax rate was 13.9 percent in 2010 (and estimated at 15.4 percent for 2011) because he earned most of his money from investments held in blind trusts which is taxed at a lower rate of 15 percent.

The capital gains tax rate takes into account the fact that income earned by investments is already subjected to a 35 percent corporate tax rate.

However, to put things on perspective, here's what $3.2 million in federal taxes -- Romney's estimated 2011 burden -- pays for:

-- The monthly food stamp allowance for about 23,909 people.

-- The cost of educating 302 elementary and high school students.

-- The base salary (before bonuses and allowances) of 178 privates in the U.S. Army.

-- The federal contribution to the benefits of 636 Medicaid enrollees.*

In addition to his taxes, Romney has given around 16.4 percent of his income over the past two years to charity through his family charity, the Tyler Foundation. In addition to donations to the Mormon church, Romney and his wife Ann donated money to the Boys and Girls Club of Boston, the Center for the Treatment of Pediatric MS, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Homes for Our Troops, and the Inner-City Scholarship Fund, among others.

...To which charities did Obama's wealth go to?

Are you telling me that you have never heard about this? It's all over the news, every single outlet, newspaper etc.? Incredible how little you seem to know about your candidate. Perhaps you should do your own homework:
Here's one, but there are tons of articles on it:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s 2010 tax returns and the 13.9 percent rate he paid highlight how wealthy investors can use the preferential treatment of income classified as capital gains and dividends to minimize payments to the U.S. government

Jon Stewart Rips Conservatives For Hypocrisy Over Romney’s Tax Returns

On his show tonight, Jon Stewart marveled at how many Republicans have been pressuring Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, but as for the conservatives defending Romney and saying he doesn’t need to release his tax returns, he called them out for hypocrisy, considering how much scrutiny conservatives have wanted to apply to President Obama‘s past, especially at the height of Birthergate.

Put-up or shut-up Ghost... Prove obama is not an affirmative action President...

The one reason, the one word reason, the only reason jobs and the economy are stagnate is the word "obama"...
-
If not for obama's "War on Prosperity" and putting the cart (healthcare) before the donkey (jobs) 4 years ago... libtards would not be defending No jobs, a 8.3 percent unemployment rate in obama's 9th inning of over and over failure...
