The liberals are spinning this topic hard. Everybody knows Romney is right about the unemployment rate!

The labor department is corrupt - just like the rest of Obama's government!

Obama would have you believe that his communism is good for our capitalism...

. We have the largest generation of retirees in history
. Baby Boomers are retiring, they are part of that "Fake" 11% unemployed Romney is pulling out of his ass....

Obama's Policy is Winning & GOP crooks are forced to keep on moving the goal posts

. GOP crooks are contesting every traditional statistics and verdicts like Polling results, Unemployment Labor reports, Economy growth reports, Supreme Court verdict...

. GOP crooks look like fools!

The inner city 25% unemployment rate for Black youth is obviously just a bunch of retirees. They just retire early.

Meditate on this at Second Level.

So why don't you bring your tax savings back home from your Swiss bank accounts and hire people? YOU'RE the problem.

TAMPA, Fla.— Mitt Romney sat at the head of the table at a coffee shop here on Thursday, listening to a group of unemployed Floridians explain the challenges of looking for work. When they finished, he weighed in with a predicament of his own.

“I should tell my story,” Mr. Romney said.“I’m also unemployed.”

Poor unemployed multi-millionare.

Everyone knows that Tea Party revolutionaries fear and hate socialism about as much as the Antichrist. Which is funny, because the Tea Party movement’s dirty little secret is that it owes its existence to the grandaddy of all Antichrists: the godless empire of the USSR.

What few realize is that the secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.

Here is a better historical fact, one that the Kochs don’t like to repeat in public: the family’s initial wealth was not created by the harsh, creative forces of unfettered capitalism, but by the grace of the centrally-planned economy of the Soviet Union. This deserves repeating: The Koch family, America’s biggest pushers of the free-market Tea Party revolution, would not be the billionaires they are today were it not for the whim of one of Stalin’s comrades.

The Soviet oil planners were delighted with Koch’s refineries, which “operated commendably, and would in the future be the type preferred by the heads of the Soviet Union’s petroleum industry when purchasing new cracking equipment.” The Communists were so impressed they kept giving Winkler-Koch business and regularly sent Soviet engineers to train in Wichita. It was a sign of growing mutual trust.

Christian outreach to the ignorant rabble finding ways to survive the Soviet is no different, than the Christian outreach digging, or drilling wells for the hut dwellers in Africa, or South America over time. They work to actually benefit people, instead of murdering 30 Million through "the grace if the centrally planned economy of the Soviet Union."

"Finding ways to survive"?

"Christian outreach"?

Koch wasn't there "volunteering", he was profiting off their misery.

How "christian".

Uplifting the technological status of a people anywhere is decreasing misery, the history of Christian outreach and the economies it fosters. Profiting off one's efforts always leads to more outreach and more uplifting, unless it's in a Socialist system, which stagnates everyone at the same level after stealing technology from a non-Socialist entrepreneur.

I get it now, why don't the rest of your comrades?

So with Iran wanting nuclear technology, we shouldn't discourage it, we should be over there building the nuclear plant.......for a price.

With all the profit, we can "uplift" them poor Iranians, like Reagan did when he was president.

It would be the "christian" thing to do.

There has never been any problem with Iran building nuclear power for energy and advantaging Western knowhow to do so. Crazy Leftist anti-American slime want us to believe (after all the international inspections and covered secretive activities by vocal lunatics), that while the rest of the world is disarming nukes, we should believe the insane rhetoric of those wanting terror supporting networks to have nuclear weapons. Wall Street Occupier mentalities don't understand economics and worse, they're suicidal in an imposed kind of way. Meanwhile, you lunatics don't want to build peaceful nuclear power in the US.

Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked consideration of a bill to put Americans to work rebuilding roads and bridges. The 51-to-49 vote fell far short of the 60 votes that were needed to overcome a Republican filibuster. "With our economy in worse shape than at any time since the Great Depression, it is literally beyond comprehension how we could not get a single Republican to vote for a bill to put people to work rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges.
