Romney may be a successful business man as you claim.....but this Country ISN'T a Business and it can't be ran like one!!!
Just ask Ross Perot how that worked out for him.......lol!!
And things you post have been being stated for the last 40 years or so.......will they happen, possibly......but we don't know that, and with some sort of recovery actually happening......it would be hard, not impossible for Romney to win.....but we will have to wait and see!!!
A state is not a business either, but our Governor here in Ohio is moving things right along. Kaisch is a business person. He managed to wipe out our debt and lower our unemployment. Today on Google, there is a story about him reopening more factories in the state. There were environmental issues that prohibited the plant from reopening, so he worked with Ohio EPA to oversee the project from the federal EPA. Now some people will have a job to go to in the near future.

We can open up the Wall Street Journal and see thousands of successful private companies. How many successful government programs do we have? So yes, you can run a country like a business to some degree. You use the business model of eliminating waste, being more efficient with the money you do have, and lower your debts.

Romney tax reform will raise taxes on the middle class. Romney says eliminate loopholes and some tax deductions lower rates and "broaden the base". Broadening the base will raise taxes on the middle class while lowering taxes on the wealthy. It is what Romney does not say is what will hurt the middle class and that is why he has no specifics posted.
And if any one has a problem understanding that they need a comprehension class.
Like I say, it will be the very rich or the working poor left.
Obama is fighting for the middle class.

It is not because of Kasich that things are improving here in Ohio. Job gains and Unemployment Rate Drop is due to the revival of the Auto Industry and Steel, Tires, saved from China by Obama. 1 out of every 3 jobs here is related somehoe to the Auto Industry.
Those are the facts.

Obama mocks Kasich for ignoring auto bailout

President Obama couldn't resist talking today about the Republican convention speaker "who wasn't entirely on script."

No, not Clint Eastwood -- John Kasich, the governor of Ohio.

Most of the Republicans who spoke last week bemoaned the state of the economy and blamed him, Obama noted; but Kasich touted job creation in Ohio -- though he left out the part about the Obama administration's auto bailout.

"Now, I guess the theory was that it's all the governor's doing," Obama told members of the United Auto Workers in Toledo, Ohio. "But I think we need to refresh his memory -- because a lot of those jobs are autoworker jobs like yours."

Obama noted that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney opposed the bailout, and would have let Detroit carmakers go bankrupt.

In an interview last week with USA TODAY reporters and editors, Kasich said that of 122,300 jobs created in Ohio in recent years, only 1,200 are auto jobs.

While grateful for the stabilization of the car industry, Kasich that is not what is leading Ohio's economy.

Unions are not a solution to a middle-class. All they really do is drive jobs away. Trust me, in my line of work, I've seen this multiple times.
I do worry about what our younger generations are going to do. Those good paying idiot jobs just aren't there anymore. I see several of my tenants struggling to make ends meet all the time. Frequently they are late with their rent. I try to do everything I can for them, but there is only so much I can do. I can't support them.
I think part of the problem is our kids don't want to work today. Every time they need a few bucks, parents just hand it over to them. When I was a kid, there were no jobs except paper delivery. Today, every fast food restaurant has help wanted signs in the window. Same goes for other service jobs in stores. Kids just don't want to work so they have no idea of what it's like to earn a buck. When they leave high school, they just assume jobs are out there waiting for them. They have no idea of what it takes to make enough money to live comfortably. If they did, I'm sure they would rather enroll in a trade school or college.
I also notice that these younger people feel there is no need to work past 40 hours per week. Hogwash. When I was younger, I remember having three jobs at times. A full time job, a job in the evening, and another job on the weekend if my full-time job was only five days a week. It seems these younger people don't have the drive to not only live comfortably, but have a little extra to put on the side.
I've shown how jobs are driven away without unions. All people have to do is ask for fair pay along with fair working conditions and jobs go. So why not blame people wanting fair compensation on jobs going away? That's what it comes down to. Stop using the union boogeyman. People ask for a fair wage and safe conditions; the rich cry foul and leave. They then search for a place where they can exploit people.

The "idiot" jobs that paid well are gone. The skilled jobs that pay well can't find enough competent people. Just because you graduated with a computer science degree, does not mean you are employable. I hate when I see computer science graduates crying about the lack of work. It's not the field; it's you. These companies are tripping over each other trying to fill $60,000 to $100,000+ positions and can't find the skilled workers. The problem? You have people who should be working "idiot" jobs trying to work "smart" jobs.

Without unions to give average people a bigger piece of the pie, the middle class as we know it is dead. For those of us with skills, we end up turning down recruiter after recruiter. We can call our own shots. Most aren't that lucky. Does that mean they should have to break their backs and be exploited? I say no. Most the people who built Maple Heights fall into the category of average. They were manual laborers who got fair pay for their work. Those days are gone. It seems people want to make it even worse with this blind stance of unions are evil. Most of the people I grew up with -- white and black -- were children of union workers. The workers were proud men who earned a fair wage for their labor.

So was my father, and he still is a big union guy. But he also realizes the danger of overpowering unions. Sure, he made a great living too and he busted hisass for it. But how many homes being built today are being constructed of brick? None of them unless you get out to Broadview-Brecksville where people have money to have brick (or partially brick) homes.

This isn't like we have a government who calls the shots whether we have unions or not. People make those choices and companies choose whether or not to keep their jobs here. Most have chosen the latter. So what do we do--force unions up their azzes? We don't do that in a free country.

What it boils down to is two choices: get rid of unions and government interference in our American companies, or the companies leave the country. There is no third choice. It's like what Rush said a few years ago when some liberals were asking for a boycott of some product made in a slave labor country. He asked "Is it better for those people to work for five dollars a day, or not work at all because we boycotted the product?"

Perhaps I can still remain hopeful. I will appeal to those that love to suck up to the powerful. I will confine my campaign to appeal to the sycophants of the wealthiest. I will speak to the vanity of those that see themselves as a cut above their neighbors and colleagues.
I'm a member of an elite and vainglorious group.
