Umm, the Democrats are not only a viable party, they are currently defeating Romney and the Republicans. Take a look at the electoral vote projections on any site. If Obama carries Ohio, which he is leading in, he's pretty much got the election sewn up.
He's neck and neck here with the polls all counted. Trust me, I'm a driver in Ohio, and I see very few Obama signs in yards and at businesses but I see plenty of Romney signs in yards--even in lower income areas.

People can say what they want, but the enthusiasm factor is what's going to win this race. Few on the left have that enthusiasm. The right has plenty of it.

It's not that we think Romney is such a great candidate, it's because we will do whatever it takes to get rid of DumBama.

Thank you for showing the results of public education. Let's try this again: the moderator had DumBama as a guest AT HER WEDDING! Now, don't you think there would be a little bias there when she moderated the debate? Think real hard now, but don't hurt yourself.

And it's not actually 7.8%. They've added a lot of people "no longer in the job market" and that's the only thing that brought it down. Otherwise we would be over 10% using the same statistics as when he took office.

According to the Treasury, the Debt increased from January 23, 2001 to January 23, 2009, 5.7 trillion to 10.6 trillion. This amounts to an increase of 4.9 trillion in the 8 years of the Bush Administration. This amounts to an increase of about 610 billion per year.
From January 23, 2009 to January 23, 2012, the Debt has increased from 10.6 trillion to 15.2 trillion; amounting to an increase of 4.6 trillion in only 3 years. Additionally, the Obama Administration has requested and will receive another 1.2 trillion to carry through to January 2013. In 4 short years, he will have raised our debt 5.8 trillion. At this rate of spending, if Obama is reelected, our debt after 8 years will have increased to 11.6 trillion; over twice what the debt was when Obama took office in January 2009.
President Obama has already spent more than all other Presidents combined. These are not my numbers, numbers made up by liberal organizations or group's whose sole purpose is to mislead the American public. These are the numbers as reported by the Treasury Department.(1) If you are an unbeliever, go to their website, put in the dates and verify for yourself. As American's, we should all be tired of the lies and innuendo which are methodically choreographed toward ruining this great nation. A sad day is upon us as we are inundated by political rhetoric that is deceivable and allowed to be presented as truth.
America cannot afford 4 more years of spending at an average rate of 1.5 trillion per year. Nor as a nation can we longer afford to pay attention to hatefully prepared articles and charts aimed at providing false information to make a weak President look Presidential using the internet highway to post and publish unsubstantiated information to hundreds of millions.
Where the USA Debt Comes From:

1. Bush's two wars on the nation's credit card.

2. Bush's tax cuts that primarily benefit the rich on the nation's credit card.

3. Bush's Great Recession

PERIOD.

Romney/Ryan/Antichrist 2012 promise to do all of the above ON STEROIDS.

1. Romeny/Ryan/Antichrist 2012 promise to start a war with Russian and Iran. That is where the extra $2 TRILLION that the military does not want comes from. That is on the nation's credit card and/or from the massive Romney tax increases on the middle class.

2. Romney/Ryan/Antichrist 2012 promise to cut taxes primarily for the ultra rich by $5 TRILLION also on the nation's credit card.

3. Romney/Ryan/Antichrist 2012 are already trying to throw us back into recession with the help of the Republsicums in Congress. Without them, we would have a 6% unemployment rate.

Yes it is and we all know it.

Where the debt comes from:

Bush's two wars on the nation's credit card.

Bush's tax cuts for the wealthy on the nation's credit card

Bush's Great Recession the worst economy since the Great Depression on the nation's credit card

The effects of Bush's horrific economy are still being felt in the USA. Bush's horrific mortgage disaster. Bush's horrific banking catastrophe. Bush's horrifically managed wars.

Romney/Ryan/Antichrist 2012 promise more of the same but on STEROIDS. More wars on the credit card, more tax cuts for the rich on the credit card, more recessions on the credit card.

Republiscums have been doing this since the early 1980s. It is the only way these America-hating traitors can govern...by pummeling the USA.

Yes, Paul Some Girls Rape Easy Ryan lived on SS and has been a government employee for most of his adult life. He did drive the Weiner Mobile for awhile.

He is now applying for two government jobs while saying how much he hates government. He is the rabid dog biting the hand that feeds him.

Yes, Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years which makes him the poster boy for the 47%.

Yes, Romney currently pays 9% income taxes which means he does not pay his fair share of taxes. This is not even including all of his Swiss bank account, Bahamian bank account, Cayman Islands bank account tax dodging he is doing.

Let's see the Romney's secret TAX RETURNS. Where are they? What is he hiding? What is he lying about today?

Exactly, because the recession was early when DumBama took office and those unemployed were on unemployment. After they exhausted their benefits, they either found some doctor to support their claim for SS disability or otherwise decided not to look for work any longer. I'm sure many of them were close to retirement when surveyed.

In any case, more and more people throughout the DumBama term have claimed they discontinued their search for a job, so that waters down the unemployment numbers. The U-6 number is the important one to concentrate on because those are the people out of work regardless if they are on unemployment, looking for a job, or decided not to reenter the workforce. The U-6 is the actual number of people not working. There are slight drops in the last year, but it's still much higher than when DumBama took office indicating there is no real economic improvement.

Well, I suppose we have to live with the Gov't numbers. They come from the Gov't after all. They would never lie to us right?

Obama:

- 30 months of job creation=most time above 8 percent unemployment

- ended the Bush Recession in 6 months=Family income down over 7%, economy has declined faster since recession ended than when we where in recession.

- killed OBL=Obama could not make up his mind on this, changed his mind 3 times, Clinton actually talked him into it, and what gun did obama use to kill him? Oh, Seals did the dirty work.

- saved the auto industry and the 1 in every 8 Ohio jobs associated with it=At a cost of 25 billion and counting, and GM still may have to file bankruptcy. Government purchases of GM cars are what fuels most of gm sales. Unions where not expected to make concessions.

- brought the stock market back to where it was before Bush demolished it=and who are the main beneficiaries of that? wow, big companies and ceo's, the ones you whine about. The common people are not benefiting.

- wound down Iraq. Winding down Afghanistan=Still there, gitmo still open, and spending EVEN MORE on private contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.

- is a Nobel Laureate. Romney is a dorkhead financial parasite.=No wonder even the Huff post said the Nobel prizze was a joke now.

Oh yeah, this kind of thing drives America-hater Republiscums BAT**** CRAZY:
