Jobs which we won't have when Mittens and his little friend crash our economy once and for all.

Unless your job involves the military, security, or weaponry, by winter, 2013 you'll be standing around an oil-drum fire warming your hands and waiting for the soup kitchen to open. COUNT on it.

The Republican party will not be bulied into going against their principles just because the Democrats have none. Everyone who works, even the poor, should be taxed, and if there are tax cuts everyone should get them, even the rich. Obama is too one sided. He is going to open an African American Education Center. Why not an Education Center for all Americans. Because this President is not a President for all, but for only a certain segment of our society. That is just wrong, and Romney will be the President for all of us.
Really!! even the gay marriage, and where is this center going to be?

Who knows, Whiskers? Maybe if you were more familiar with the facts, you'd become a Democrat!
Well, if you look at your calendar, Obama has been President for more than 27 months. The recession ended 38 months ago. Plus 27 months may sound nice but I believe Bush holds the modern record in this category so using it to try and prove a point only underscores that fact that Obama has a lot of catching up to do to even tie Bush. So either Bush set the economic bar to high or Obama is performing very well, you decide.

I know a guy who runs, with his wife, a true mom and pop business, they are open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day. He was offended by obama's remarks.
Does the person you know sell products- and if he does where does he get his products from? Even a mom and pop grocery store have to have people will to sell stuff to them so they have the stuff to sell other people. Or do you think that person sat down and made every loaf of bread and every quart of milk that he sells??? Probably someone working at minimum wage made the bread- and a poor farmer was the one who milked the cows- so no the mom and pop store was not completely built by the person who owns it. After you get the products you have to sell the products- so the customers came and bought stuff at the mom and pop store- which gave them an income. Ever stop to think what might happen to a mom and pop store that had no customers??? I am sure it wouldnt be in business for too long. That was all President Obama was trying to say - that no business is completely built by one person- it takes a whole community working together to make the businesses work!!! You know if the Country would try settling down forget about Republicans and Democrats and we all started helping each other and looking at others as if we were all Americans and all human beings then this great Country might succeed. "United we stand- Divided we fall"!!!!

That was the point.
"Very few helped go on to build successful businesses"?
How did they do that without customers, generating their own electricity, water, making their own raw materials for their inventory, etc.
Name one that did all that by themselves.

Amazing you know exactly what Obama meant and how he thinks. Can you read just anyones mind or just Obama's? I do not believe that is what he meant at all. He meant (since I read his mind) that the government and rich parents got that business going. I am in total agreement with you on your last sentence - but Obama has divided this country and has taken it back to 1960 with all of his racial crap.(Stupid Cops, Martin and the list goes on)

There really should be no argument here. Read the President's "offending" sentence ("If you have a business - you didn't build that.") in the context of the five or so that preceded it and you will understand. Or, maybe some of you won't. Regardless of how you spin it, when taken in context, the antecedent to the pronoun "that" is not "business," it's the government-funded education, infrastructure and research assisting businesses to make what he called “this unbelievable American system that we have.”(The last clause was taken from FactCheck.org . http://factcheck.org/2012/07/you-didnt-build-... ) Bob McDonnell's condemnation of the complete statement, may be good politics for the right, but it is a complete fabrication.(For many of you, read that clause as "but it is a complete lie.")

He should have blasted Obama for putting spy planes, drones and czars all over our country. And for giving the mexican drug cartel one hundred thousand assault rifels by which are now making their way back to the states to kill Americans. This guy is not who you think. He is a fraud and is working against America and Americans. Dont be stupid, vote for the other puppet.
