Why wait any longer just drive yourself on down and surrender.
We have a padded cell all ready for you.

listen all I know is romney represents the 1 percent.....
giving the wealthy tax breaks, thinking they will reivest the money somehow...we tried that, it didnt work.
yes job growth is sluggish....
that is the reason why Obama tried to get the economy moving again with the stim.....it wasnt a panacea, but is that what you folks on the right were expecting after handing obama an economy that was shedding about 700000 jobs a month???
it is like you expect the economy to be fully up and running, so you can wreck it again???
if it WAS fully up and running?? and unemployment was much lower??
youd still be taking issue with the economy somehow...
no elections arnt fair...
look at what the supream court did in 2000....they stopped the recount.
ill bet you were crying foul then???(NOT)
or when bush stole Ohio with the help of diebold??
that decided the election...
im sure you were all flustered then.
Obama squarly whopped McCain by almost double the electoral votes.
and he is about to do it again(mabey not double) to Romney
ryan wouldnt even get into the specifics of their tax plan with friendly fox news host chris wallace?? wallace sounded like a lib for a second when he was grilling him didnt he???
jim leher is going to ask some very unbolshevik questions, like would you like to clarify that remark about th people who dont vote for you???
or here is one??
how many jobs have you shipped to communist china??
is that too bolshevik for ya??
or where are your tax returns??? how much money have you offshored in the caymans and switzerland??
or ?? do you really think tax cuts for the wealthy will help the middle class and poor.
that is about as revolutionary as jim is inclned to get.
and in the end, the american voters are just still getting to know what romney and ryan stand for....
they still havnt devulged THAT many specifics(as we saw on fox)
ps: didnt bush bailout wall st to the tune of 700 billion??
your tea party logic doesnt stand up to reality.
#5285 Oct 3, 2012
bailing out wall st. alone wouldnt have stopped the hemmoraging of 700000 jobs a month....
just that Obama was able to turn it around and keep the economy from falling off a cliff was good enough for alot of people, obviously not those who couldnt find work.
but the mismanegment was so gross an so severe during bush cheney, that a full recovery in 4 years, seemed unlikely.
it took bill clinton into his second term to REALLY turn things around.....but then again the bush 1 recession wasnt nearly as deep as the bush deux recesssion.
I was amazing!! at 22 I couldnt find a job and I DIDNT blame george hw bush.
but I knew things would be better off if we elected a democrat...
which we did. and it got better
trickle down doesnt really work very well, you have to include direct capital injection, so the middle class has some PPP.(purchasing power)

....ignore this person, he has absolutely no idea!! watches the government run media, with "fixed" polls, "cooked" data, and in the tank for obama!! if you read the truth, you would know most of the polls are done by bias,(dems) with a plus 10 or minus 12% percent in fav of the dems......yes that's what is said.....propaganda at its best!...btw, will you settle for a job that pays $10 an hour, or $10 a month? that's the job growth in the u.s. today!!

#5287 Oct 3, 2012
...so confused!! that would be for your traitor obama and the socialist party.....
#5288 Oct 3, 2012
Show me a link to a statement that Romney will give wealthy tax breaks? Actually Mitt Romney suggests that one way to pay for his 20 percent cut in the tax rate is to limit itemized deductions to $17,000. For those, like himself, who itemize millions, it's a big hit.
So the great obama tried. That is his claim to fame, "he tried". By God he tried, isn't that enough to vote him back? lol...how funny...."he tried". In other words he didn't have a clue, giving money to his rich friends didn't work. How alarming. lol..

Thanks jondee, I agree, he can't answer questions, never has a link or actual quotes, makes up stuff he hears from some racist rev.'s. and responds with 20 questions unrelated to the post written up and down with double spacing to occupy. I'm sure he was part of that loser movement too.

The recession Clinton inherited was relatively small, and caused by the Fed raising interest rates too high to ward off inflation.
The recession Clinton inherited? What recession?
According to the National Bureau of Economic Research - the group charged with determining the official start and end dates for such things - the early '90s recession ending in March 1991. As the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis website indicates, the gross domestic product grew by 2.7 percent in the 2nd quarter of that year, followed by gains of 1.7 and 1.6 percent in the remaining quarters.
And that's when things really started cooking, for the first quarter of 1992 saw a GDP rise of 4.5 percent followed by 4.3, 4.2, and 4.3 percent in the subsequent quarters.
As such, when Clinton took office, quite contrary to what his former labor secretary might think, the economy was booming.

Obama Administration Outsourced Jobs with Stimulus Funding
Obamas 2009 economic stimulus spending law--the $787 billion American Recovery and Reivnestment Act--gave millions of federal dollars to foreign companies or funded domestic companies that built factories in foreign countries or bought foreign products.
Obama administration funding foreign companies is a $337 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energys green energy lending program.
That loan went to California energy firm Sempra Energy for a solar power array in Arizona. However, according to a Feb. 4, 2011 New York Times report, Sempra Energy bought its solar panels from the Chinese firm Suntech.
The project, known as Mesquite Solar 1, reportedly used 800,000 of the Chinese solar panels.
Perhaps the best-known example of Obama administration funding of foreign companies is its $500-million loan guarantee to Finnish automaker Fisker Automotive. That loan, part of the Energy Departments electric vehicle lending program, was made to help Fisker establish a U.S. manufacturing presence.
However, the company never established an American factory, choosing instead to shutter its U.S. operations and continue building cars in Finland.

Just another day on the job, always got to clean your weapon from it being fired so much, while on duty..
#5294 Oct 3, 2012
I agree that that recession was technically ending when clinton beat the stuffin outa bush.
but unemployment got to 7.5% in that recession.
almost what it is now??/
and you keep calling the economy horrible??
we did then too, and threw bush out.
it was an actual recession, trust me, I was there.
dont you remember the s& l debaucle??
bush number 1 bailed out the banks to the tune of 200 million.
#5295 Oct 3, 2012
200 billion I mean
#5296 Oct 3, 2012
the more I write??
the more you rebuttlickers respond?/
I wonder why?
polls dont lie, usually they are correct.
now romney has rebranded himself in the debate to the center.
he took the president by suprise..
but Obama responded and called him out.
romneys base(if you could call them) are appauled by what he said about not lowering taxes on the wealthy.
he just cant win....
the right wing will howl for blood.

wait til they talk about foreign policy. Obama is not used to being confronted, he is normally protected by the media, even the bolshevik couldn't save him. Obama kept repeating the liberal lie that Romney was giving the rich a break, but got shot down. Obama has no record to stand on. Next time Romney will make a bigger fool out of the fool.
#5301 Oct 3, 2012
Really? Mitt: when did that happen, the only thing I saw Obama doing was crying to the Bolshevik to change the topic. You might want to think about changing your name....lol.
#5302 Oct 3, 2012
Obama looked like a deer in headlights, Mitt presented facts and pointed to Obummer as a total failure while remaining cordial
#5303 Oct 4, 2012
id say it was a draw.
now romney has to explain to his base(you do know them)
why he wont give them another tax break.
or do they just know that as code??? for "tax break"
republicans have a wee bit of baggage when it comes to foriegn policy...
I would get too exited.
ill admit, Obama wa skinda flat
romney isnt a brilliant orator like Obama, so expaectations were higher from the left for the president to kick romneys A%%.
it didnt happen.
yet i knew it wouldnt.
at the debates, both candidates make their case.
at the next one??? theyll be saying it was a draw...
then theyll declare the last one won by Obama.
same thing with ryan/biden.....no real winner.
no gottcha moments.
just boring debates.
obama also exposed to the audience, and romney didnt refute, that medicare would be voucherized under romney........score one for the prez.
dont be played by the pundits......they just dont want this to be over for obvious reasons(ratings)
but it is.
