"Today, our economy is growing again, al-Qaeda is weaker than at any point since 9/11, and our manufacturing sector is growing for the first time in more than a decade. But there is more we need to do, and so we come together again to continue what we started," the platform said.

Democrats unveiled a party platform at their national convention Monday that echoes President Barack Obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier Americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights.

That's why Americans sent Republicans to leadership in Congress: to stop the idiotic spending.
The Pork Bill did noting but put is nearly another trillion more in debt. And what did DumBama do with that money? He pandered to his union and environmentalist friends. Why in the world do you think Republicans want more of that?
DumBama is clueless. He doesn't know how to create jobs because he thinks it's government that creates them. Government doesn't create anything. All government can do is make it more or less inviting for the private market to create jobs, and DumBama is so anti-business it isn't funny.
At least it can be shown how effective odummas anti business policies have been. Our economy is in the toilet.

A great job? Then can you explain to me why we have many less jobs than when DumaBama took office? Higher unemployment? Most government dependents in the history of our country?

If that's job creation, then perhaps DumBama should work on job elimination. It can't be worse.

It is not the Republicans that have blocked immigration reform by demanding amnesty for millions of known criminals. It is not the Republicans that are suing states, local governments and even individuals that attempt to enforce the law while ignoring states, local governments and individuals that openly violate federal immigration laws.
Of course Republicans want control and power. Do you actually think that Democrats do not want control and power? It is called politics stupid.

Yep, that's it.

I heard a joke on the radio the other day. The difference between Romney supporters and Obama supporters is how they sign their check. Romney supporters sign their check on the front while Obama supports sign their check on the back.

Pretty much sums it up.

America must import from Europe to gain a richer economy.. if the Euro is stronger than the American dollar it means that America must buy goods from Europe to become richer...
