Why do people like you always add two plus two and come up with five?
Quote from Factcheck.org :
Mitt Romney falsely claimed in a recent speech that “Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China.” Chrysler says it is considering adding Jeep production sites in China to address rising demand in that market. But the company says it is “a leap that would be difficult even for professional circus acrobats” to suggest that it would close U.S. facilities and move all operations to China.

Despite Chrysler’s admonition, Romney is now making a similar claim in a new TV ad.

The ad says,“Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China. Mitt Romney will fight for every American job.” It’s misleading to suggest that Chrysler’s decision to expand into China will cost U.S. jobs — especially after the company has said it would have no impact on its U.S. operations.

<quoted text>I read a TIME article covering an interview with the then governor Bush. Something in his words made me say out loud, "This man intends to bankrupt the country." So two wars, Medicare Part D, and huge tax cuts to the wealthy later, the enormous forces of wealth and power are poised to completely dismantle the middle class and crush the sense of social obligation. "Mission Accomplished" for Georgie.
I'm always amazed how willing many of my fellow citizens are ready to act like lemmings and go over the cliff. Or maybe a better comparison is national suicide in the name of trickle down economics.
The rich have been doing it to the poor and the middle class for centuries yet the imbeciles in the majority of the population are still willing to lie legs open and listen to TV commercials of the rich pigs instead of halting the bath of selfishness and racism that the demons give them every day. Damn, America!! Have some self-respect!! Turn off your TVs when your pimp Rethuglicans come on! Stop watching Fox News upside down between your legs!! Nothing will change until the prostituted people stop bending over for the rich, obtain some measure of dignity, think critically about who is really screwing them and send them to hell at the next election.
Socialism and communism don't work for the people. Study your history and forget about blaming Republicans and Fox News. History will show you where we are heading, and heading there fast.

Your point is?

I hate Chinese products myself. It's really quite hard to find any products made in the US and at Christmas it's much worse.

Obama is our President, you can like him or hate him. Your concern should be what has Obama done about the Chinese Imports and what is Obama going to do.

If you think the Chinese have not been manipulating currency then you better start reading your favorite news source. This is old news and it's widely known that the Chinese have done this and continue to.

If your post is not about issues and just more trolling on your part please ignore my post.

From your link....I think you will see that both have told lies and half-truths. I have come to the conclusion that both are unfit for any public office and both parties are a failure to the US and her citizens. We need to hold our public servants accountable.

Whoppers of 2012, Final Edition
The biggest falsehoods from the presidential campaign.
Posted on October 31, 2012

Summary

With only days to go until Election Day 2012, we look here at the most egregiously false and misleading claims from the entire presidential campaign. Some examples:

President Barack Obama claimed Mitt Romney is planning to raise taxes by $2,000 on middle-income taxpayers and/or cut taxes by $5 trillion. Neither is true.
Romney claimed Obama plans to raise taxes by $4,000 on middle-income taxpayers. That’s not true, either.
It’s also not true that Obama plans “to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements,” as Romney claimed.
Equally untrue is the Obama campaign’s repeated claim that Romney backed a law that would outlaw “all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest.”

So many false and twisted claims were made in the early months that we issued an “early edition” of our annual wrap-up of political whoppers in July. We noted then that the campaign had been nasty, brutish and long.

And it’s only gotten longer, not more truthful.

For example, Romney just claimed that the bailed-out Chrysler Corp. is thinking of moving all Jeep production to China. Chrysler quickly denounced that as a falsehood. Romney’s latest whopper is perhaps his payback for Obama’s earlier accusation that Romney personally “shipped jobs to China” at a time when, in reality, Romney was running the 2002 Winter Olympics, not Bain Capital. Thus one whopper begets another.

It’s been that sort of campaign, filled from beginning to end with deceptive attacks and counterattacks, and dubious claims. For a generous sampling of the worst of a bad lot, please read on to our Analysis section.
Analysis

When we issued our “early edition” of this annual wrap-up, we complained that “neither candidate speaks candidly of what he would actually do if elected.” We also expressed a hope that “the candidates will become less personal, more substantive, and more forthcoming about their plans.” But instead of a candid discussion of how to address pressing issues, including trillion-dollar annual deficits, rising health care costs and the needs of an aging population, we’ve seen even more exaggerations, distortions and falsehoods, on both sides.

We offer them here in no particular order, and with no attempt to judge which candidate strays furthest — or most often — from the facts. Readers may judge that for themselves. And we make no claim that this list is comprehensive. Rather, it represents a summary and sampling of our findings issued over the course of a long and not very illuminating campaign

How many Jeeps??
obummer a four year failure!!!!
Good try, but wrong. Some of this funding came from TARP, the program proposed and passed by the Bush Administration. Of the 27 clean energy projects funded by the stimulus bill, only three are currently in bankruptcy.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/04/us/politics... ;

And program fully covers the losses from these new technology investments in very competitive clean technology markets. Of the total bill for 1705 loan program, 87% went to low risk power projects, and are not in trouble. They will be returning a profit to the taxpayer.

But under the Bring Jobs Home Act, a smart company would open first in Honduras, then shut down and then relocate to the Bay State.
The firm would get $2 million in tax credits, which would more than offset the cost of the Honduran operation.
The tax code would encourage businesses to start a foreign operation first — by subsidizing the cost of later switching to the United States.
The act would provide a credit even for fully automated factories.
But why should we provide tax credits for units that employ nobody?
..........
Those damn facts keep getting in the way.
. Under current law, companies can deduct the cost of moving people and equipment overseas from their taxes. S. 3364 would have eliminated that deduction, and created a new 20 percent tax credit for all costs associated with moving overseas jobs back to America. Makes sense, start a business in Honduras and get a tax break for moving the people and equipment back to the US.
