I'm sure there are offices that provide internships to young people. Nobody starts out at the top. What was your first job? Mine, I was a busboy and I made $2.12 an hour and 20 bucks a night in tips the waitresses would share with me for cleaning their tables.
As a whole, when Newt is elected president he will be a net job creator not a job cutter. So far Obama is 2 million jobs in the whole and the only reason unemployment dropped last month is because 315,000 workers left the workforce. Even with the holiday hiring spree Obama's numbers suck. The only jobs you Democrats know how to create are the ones paid for by the taxpayers.
That's an exxageration, but at least those people aren't drawing unemployment, and they're contributing to the economy. Yes, there are offices that offer internships, and since the newt has become chummy with the Donald, he's missed an opportunity to pair up with him and get some sort of plan together that would offer those to the kids.

The poster was speaking of the continued economic downturn in America, which has been made much worse by Obama's Socialism-driven programs.

But since you point fingers at the "global economy" in the usual attempt to blame Obama's failures on ANYONE else, I'll point out that it doesn't take a "visionary" to recognize that the Socialistic model is failing globally.

Other than the healthcare project, which of Obama's Socialism-driven programs, are you speaking of? Please identify them?

The American people are soooooo stupid they wanted Cain, who is senile, who sings songs from a 12 year old Pokiman Movie and says things from The Simpsons Movie, who was going to transfer the entire tax base onto them, raise their taxes by 27 percent to take all taxes off of the corporations and off of the rich, to elect a senile dirty old man president when the guy failed long ago running for state senator. OMG. All the idiots care about is who is dumb like they are, who is evil, who is lying to them, who likes cartoons, who is stupid, who will tax them to their deaths, who knows nothing. OMG. Oh that, and Fox TV tells them, Fox TV votes for them, Fox told them to hate, hate, hate, and they are like a dog with a tennis ball, low, low, low IQs so they just love the hate crap coming from Sean Hanity. Oh wow, some ugly old nut on TV says to hate, yeah, that must be the solution. And, god forbid you all ever think, even one time, god forbid you don't elect an idiot or some senile evil nut case who shoves white women's heads in his lap. Oh wow, Fox says to elect crazy old Newt, must be the thing to do.

This country is third world because the people are sooooooo stupid. You all have no where left to go except under. You all hate Ron Paul cause Fox says so. TV thinks for you, so smart, so great. This idiot baby crap is so great. OMG. Anyone with an IQ over 90 get out while you can before these morons kill you over Glenn Beck telling them you are a commie. Anyone with half a brain with any education whi is not violent needs to get out. Look at these people. Supporting Newt because TV tells them to, repeating nothing but hate stuff from TV, all shooting in the dark, thinking Cain was normal, thinking Newt is normal. OMG. The tea party is all third world idiots. Anyone who can only repeat TV, stop waiving your guns around, just shoot yourselves already. OMG. TV told you to elect Newt, so you will. Then when your idiot big fat violent asses go under, you won't know who to hate nor who to kill. Then you all are going to turn on Fox TV when you find out you do need 5-8 years of higher education to get a job, when the billionaires on Fox split and move to Europe. Then what?? Then it's a total nation of violent idiots left on their own. OMG. Run as fast as you can and get out of the country before the tea party idiots totally take over the country. OMG.

They all live off of socialism, they all love socialism, if not for their union pensions, state and federal pensions, socialist security and government Medicare and government Medicaid, all of them would leave the U.S.

The first time I saw the tea party on TV, I saw all old people on many government pensions and on union pensions, on full blown European socialism. Fat, unhappy old people living on socialism all going on and on and on and on about how they hate socialism. These people are so stupid, they are actually fighting to end OTHER spending to try and keep their socialism, the big entitlements they are all on. They are idiots, let the socialism all end, end SS today, end Medicare today, no free rest homes for any of them from Medicaid, end their union pensions today, end their various governemnt pensions today. They all hate European socialism, then take all of their government money away from all of them. They would all lose 100 pounds, no longer be fat and lazy and stupid and whining if the governemnt didn't take care of them all. The ONLY reason they stay in the U.S. is they get all of that socialism. You end the socialism, all of them will leave. So end it. Let them leave.

Social security and Medicare now have 120 TRILLION dollars of debt. How many of you want your big fat socialism ended and how many of you are going to pay a new national sales tax to keep those socialism programs?? Pick one. Either end your socialism, which not a one of you would ever do, OR create a big national sales tax to pay for your socialism. This idea that you all are somehow so important because you are stupid and violent and completely useless and classless, so the government has to somehow give all of you 120 trillion dollars in entitlements, yeah right, not ever going to happen.

How about the tea party deals with one real thing, try it just one time. You all love, love, love your socialism, you have no intention of giving it up, yet it is the drivers of the debt and using up all of the tax money, your SS and Medicare have now promised you all 120 TRILLION dollars more than you paid into those two programs, so you can either create a 20 percent national sales tax to pay that money out to you, or you can end those social programs. So which is it?? Do you want U.S. socialism ended or do you want a big new tax to pay for your socialism like they do in Europe? Pick one cause Jesus is not printing up the money for you and neither is the Federal Reserve.

Hey Pam, I was watching FOX news last night. America's number one rated source for news, and they said Ron Paul will fade away into oblivion after the Iowa caucuses. He's currently polling at 7% nationwide.

Here is my prediction, and this is just my opinion, nothing more.

If Newt gets the nod, Obama gets another 4 years.
Newt has too much baggage and even though the Rightwing hates Obama, the Indy voters hate Newt more and no matter how bad Obama is, Newt is worse.

If Mitt gets the nod, Obama gets another 4 years. Mitt can't make up his mind which way the wind blows and the Rightwing has nothing but passion and Mitt doesn't stir passion so he won't get the votes.

If Paul gets the nod, Obama gets another 4 years. Paul appeals to many on the right and the left, but not enough of the middle.

If Huntsman gets the nod, the GOP might take the Whitehouse in 2012 but they might not.

Personally, I hope Obama gets re-elected and the House changes back to a Democrat majority as well as the Dems taking over 60 seats in the Senate and Ben Nelson gets voted out along with Kent Conrad and all the other blue dog POS DINO's and replaced by Democrats that are actual Democrats and not Republican-Lites.
