romney is it all wrong. china is not cheating. they are just not playing fair.

let me explain the difference..

the usa wants china to open up their market to us. but china doesn't want to do this. protectionism? yes. not fair? yes.

but is it cheating? no.

OUR government allowed all our jobs to be outsourced. OUR government allowed all our factories to be built overseas. CHINA didn't do this. OUR government had expectations that china doesn't want to live up to.

who is to blame? the cocaine using, marijuana smoking, BRAIN DEAD, STUPID hippie politicians on capitol hill.

they should ALL be fired. PRONTO!

now, regarding trade with china. my 2 cents? quit the outsourcing of jobs. quit the building of our factories over there. QUIT giving them our technology for FREE?!!!?? do what they are doing.

trade only when it is fair to us.

QUIT worrying about the poverty in the world. it is not our responsibility to resolve it.

for chris sake. focus on the needs of your own people rather than give all our money to foreign countries who don't have our best interest in mind.(WHY should they?)

let me repeat... cocaine using, marijuana smoking, BRAIN DEAD, STUPID, hippie politicians.

GET OFF CAPITOL HILL ALREADY! YOU DON'T BELONG THERE!

America must lower their goals and aspirations. America must pick Obama over Romney. So much less pressure if you give up rather than being expected to make a contribution to society.

What does Governor romney plan to do about trade? Bring back the Bush steel tarriffs? Bush's big government policies set the stage for President Obama's socialism. I am not claiming that every single policy that might be labeled "protectionsit" is automatically wrong, but "outsourcing" often leads to more inexpensive goods and services for Americans. And if companies are public corporations then they have a fiduciary responsibility to maximize profitability. Corporations are generally not charities for the domestic unemployed and underemployed. If the USA is going to make voluntary sacrifices in our standard of living regarding China, I'd rather it be in opposition to their human rights abuses than to protect domestic businesses that cannot operate as efficiently as overseas and international ones. I'd rather own a well-built and inexpensive Honda or Toyota than a protectionist-supported Ford (Fix Or Repair Daily) or GM (Government Motors) that depreciates faster than Jesse Owens.

DO YOU THINK SO?

There is no way possible for Obama to do about jobs economy and trade at all from now on .
Nearly for FOUR years of troubling messes in the economics, only ignorant people will still think there is Obama about the economy.
His economic policy is no different than that of Bush, which will outcome the SAME economic crash as he talked about--the credit crunch crisis.

And about the security and US role in the world, there shows ineffective policy done by Obama.

==========
DO YOU know and get the straight facts?

Obama has created many terror groups and violences against US stand in many places like Libya, Egypt, Pakistan, and globally while telling the getting of bin Laden.
In other words, Obama has made it more insecure since then.

I

There had been subtraction of middle class,income and wealth during Obama's period,while the poor are growing in bigger numbers and the rich getting richer in very small number (like the stock market) for the disproportional distribution of wealth--so Obama loves the super rich and hates the poor then.
Such are not facts that people are better off.

And US is falling down on world stage (such as events of Libya and Egypt and more, recently), and yet do you know that?

so, if china is using people who are essentially slaves, small children to produce these cheap goods, that is ok in your book. right?

if china is selling these goods to us at a price cheaper than what they spend to produce them so that they can bankrupt our domestic companies, that is ok too. right?

you say we are protectionistic? bro, you don't know what protectionism is until you examine what is going on overseas.

they STEAL our drugs, our movies, our IT goods. they do this by not honoring our patents and copyrights.

you talk about tariffs? hey. in most foreign countries, our goods are more expensive than in the states. and as for jobs, why is it they can work in our country when we cannot in theirs?

this is not fair.

you say we should keep the playing field as is knowing all the above? you are either crazy or not american.

The nightmares in North Africa seem to be working for Obama. Americans are becoming more frightened and feeling less secure about the future their families will face under a constant barrage of Islamic Hate and Intolerance and mind numbing violence.

Coupled with Obamas most daily rants focusing on his mantra that America's best days and behind us and our only hope is giving up and giving in to Big Brother is working. His Handlers believe that Americans are now so disgusted and demoralized that He will actually Win in November.
