Let's hope Barack Hussein Obama keeps whining that capitalism (and his name) are responsible for his many failures.

Since February, more than 400,000 workers in 25 states have lost access to the federal Extended Benefits program, which previously provided a final 13 to 20 weeks of unemployment insurance to the longest-term unemployed.
[W]hat distinguishes this last recession and its slow recovery is the unprecedented level of long-term unemployment. Of our nation's more than 12.7 million unemployed, more than 5 million -- 42%-- have been out of work for six months or longer. Nearly one in three have been out of work for more than a year.

It was explained to Obama that the permitting process can delay projects for "months to years ... and in many cases even cause projects to be abandoned ...
I'm sure that when you implemented the Recovery Act your staff briefed you on many of these challenges." At this point, Obama smiled and interjected, "Shovel-ready was not as ... uh .. shovel-ready as we expected." The Council, led by GE's Jeffrey Immelt, erupted in laughter.
Not convincing.

The recession began under Bush. We were losing over 500,000 jobs per month.

One of the standard remedies for fighting economic downturns is to keep money flowing through the system.

That's what every president has done since FDR, including GW Bush when he first came into office.

The problem for Obama is this recession is huge and outside of the March, 2009 bail-outs, the GOP Congress has been uncooperative.

It's been obvious from the beginning they want the recession to continue so they can make the arguments you've been making.

"The munitions addressed in the report were produced in the 1980s, Maples said. Badly corroded, they could not currently be used as originally intended, Chu added.

While that's reassuring, the agent remaining in the weapons would be very valuable to terrorists and insurgents, Maples said. "We're talking chemical agents here that could be packaged in a different format and have a great effect," he said, referencing the sarin-gas attack on a Japanese subway in the mid-1990s."

The agent inside those "rusted canisters" were a threat.

Why is Obama attacking capitalism?

“Hey, let’s keep talking about Bain Capital!”

Mitt Romney proudly rolled out Bain’s investment history, in which their businesses succeeded in boosting profit and viability in 80% of the cases — keeping in mind that private-equity firms and especially Bain tend to focus on already-troubled firms. Only 5% of their bets resulted in bankruptcy later, which is a rather remarkable record for a private-equity firm.

<quoted text> ... Hans Blix was telling Bush et. al. that there was no evidence of WMD and that Saddam was cooperating and that we shouldn't invade. Did y'all miss that?
Cooperating? Did y'all miss these Blix reports?

1)"THE SECURITY COUNCIL, 27 JANUARY 2003: AN UPDATE ON INSPECTION"
Executive Chairman of UNMOVIC, Dr. Hans Blix

"...In 1991, resolution 687 (1991), adopted unanimously as a part of the cease-fire after the Gulf War, had five major elements. The three first related to disarmament. They called for :

- declarations by Iraq of its programmes of weapons of mass destruction and long range missiles;
- verification of the declarations through UNSCOM and the IAEA;
- supervision by these organizations of the destruction or the elimination of proscribed programmes and items....

- Cooperation on process (UNSCOM and IAEA inspections)

Iraq has on the whole cooperated rather well so far with UNMOVIC in this field.... In this updating I am bound, however, to register some problems ... I am obliged to note some recent disturbing incidents and harassment....

- Cooperation on substance ((the declarations mentioned by Blix in his introduction)

The substantive cooperation required relates above all to the obligation of Iraq to declare all programmes of weapons of mass destruction and either to present items and activities for elimination or else to provide evidence supporting the conclusion that nothing proscribed remains....

They deserve to be taken seriously by Iraq rather than being brushed aside as evil machinations of UNSCOM. Regrettably, the 12,000 page declaration, most of which is a reprint of earlier documents, does not seem to contain any new evidence that would eliminate the questions or reduce their number."

http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/Bx27.htm

2)February 2003 update

"Mr. President, in my 27th of January update to the council, I said that it is seen from our experience that Iraq had decided in principle to provide cooperation on process....

In my last updating, I also said that a decision to cooperate on substance was indispensable, in order to bring, through inspection, the disarmament task to completion and to set the monitoring system on a firm course. Such cooperation as I have noted requires more than the opening of doors. In the words of Resolution 1441, it requires immediate, unconditional and active efforts by Iraq to resolve existing questions of disarmament....

The declaration submitted by Iraq on the 7th of December last year, despite its large volume, missed the opportunity to provide the fresh material and evidence needed to respond to the open questions. This is, perhaps, the most important problem we are facing.... Iraq itself must squarely tackle this task and avoid belittling the questions...."

http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-500257_162-540681...

3)Blix speech to UN March 7, 2003

"Mr. President, Iraq, with a highly developed administrative system, should be able to provide more documentary evidence about its proscribed weapons programs. Only a few new such documents have come to light so far and been handed over since we began inspections...."

http://articles.cnn.com/2003-03-07/us/sprj.ir...

After 12 years, Iraq STILL had TWO major disarmament obligations per the cease-fire agreement to fulfill. Both were equally important.

One involved inspections (process)

The other involved providing current "full, final and complete disclosure" (declarations) of all aspects of its WMD programs.
(substance)

Iraq NEVER fully complied with the second. In February, Blix called this non-compliance the "most important problem we face."

Three weeks before the invasion, Blix said "only a few such documents" had been handed over since the resumption of inspections.

Now, what were you saying about "cooperation"???

Even Bill Clinton has shot down Obama's desperate attack on Romney and Bain Capital.

'Bill Clinton on Bain Capital: Another Cory Booker Moment?

On 'Piers Morgan Tonight', the former president praises Romney's record at Bain Capital, undermining the Obama campaign's latest ads.

“I think he had a good business career,” Clinton said of Romney, when queried about Bain. He also called Mitt’s record “sterling”, adding “So I don’t think that we ought to get into the position where we say this is bad work. This is good work.” Since it isn’t likely that the ex-president will film a “hostage-style” apology video, as critics of Cory Booker’s subsequent YouTube clip deemed it, it’s fair to wonder about the extent the Obama campaign will be attacking Bain from now on — especially after U.S. stocks suffered their worst drop of the year Friday following weak economic data.

Mitt Romney, for one, was happy to welcome Clinton’s’ thoughts.“I think Bain Capital has a good and solid record. I was happy to see President Clinton made a similar statement … and called my record superb,” he said on Friday, according to Politico.'

Only a moron would bitch 24/7 about abortion & then bitch about insurance companies offering birth control with no co-pay and at the same time bitch about women on welfare that have kids and defund an organization that prevents 50,000 abortions a year.

It makes zero sense whatsoever.
