Your such a moocher cry baby. Take you bottle and go to bed.
Attention tonytheturd!!! Moocher? Are you trying to say I'm in the 47 percent that b. h. obama uses to get elected? Now you know that's an impossibility for me to be in any group that would cast a vote for b. h. obama. I mean I would have to be a real self-serving moocher who stands for nothing and falls for anything...like you.

No change in the polls after the debate, Obama maintains the same amount of lead.

Romney said you are in his 47% moocher dependent on government. The southern republican states are the ones most dependent on government.

The unemployment rate going down hurts Romney along with a improving economy and exports. More jobs are being created with manufacturing going up from the large downward slide during the Bush years.
The unemployment rate going down shouldn't be measured by how it will hurt one candidate or the other.
It should be measured and reviewed by why it dropped.
Kind of like the census count lowered it in February...not because the job market inproved by .3%, but because they were able to remove 1.2 million people from the Labor Force Participation number.
This new drop is partly due to an increase in jobs, though they are mostly poorly paying, part-time jobs, but it also due to the numbers used to calculate it.
The U6 unemployment rate remains unchanged at 14.7%.
The U6 number is comprised of those collecting unemployment, those who are still unemployed but no longer counted due to their benefits running out, those who are under-employed and those who have simply stopped looking for work.
Again, if fictitious good news that hurts Romney makes you happy, well, keep your rosy glasses on and enjoy.

Yes this Obama voted against funds relief for Katrina victims.
Bush administration really screwed up the Katrina disaster. That was sad.

If that 3 day bombing fell on your head you'd damned sure think it was a war.
What about those 6 days when Israel took the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights? Was not that a war?
They did not fall on my head. Thanks for your concern.

Not particularly...they're too fluid and easily manipulated, though Rassmussen has been the most accurate for several election cycles now.
I was simply pointing out that contrary to your statement, the polls are reflecting a "bump", which will no doubt be more apparent by Monday.
But don't worry. Bumps rarely last.

You misunderstood.

It wasn't concern but rather a reference to your stupidity.

Oh well , it is an election season and Chicago style politics is in full bloom.
The basis for these figures are 60,000 telephone calls to individual households.
To bad you really can't do some thinking on your own and must resort to talking points from Fox News. Had you bothered to check for yourself or wait two seconds to start your rant, you might have seen the job report was updated for July and August and more added those months.

Mitt Romney drew several distinctions between his Health Care State law and Obama's health care law --
1) Romneycare was bipartisan, something Obama is incapable of. "I Won" said it all about that assh*le.
2) Romney's plan actually did allow workers to keep health insurance plans they liked,
3) Romney's plan came without any tax increases
4) Romenycare DID NOT LOOT Entitlements. Obama's stole $716 BILLION from Medicare!
This was more than enough to make an ill-prepared, low-energy Obama grimace.
VERY WELL SUMMARIZED THANKS

Going back to Bush's trickle down economics will make things like they were when he was president, only we'll still be paying off Bush's debt on top of Romney's tax cut for the very rich.

It isn't rocket science.
