A sound bite from Ryan today was a question. He said ask the President where the jobs are. To that, I say, the republican tax cuts were suppose to allow for big business to create jobs, you know, the trickle down theory. Well, the tax cuts for the millionaires and billionaires have been in place for years now. Wonder what they're doing with all their money? Bet Romney knows.
And there have not been any gov't jobs created, because they keep getting cut.
I didn't think it possible but this republican ticket appears to be worse than W.

Romney/Ryan gonna put all you deadbeats to work. No more freebies and handouts, don't work don't eat, just that simple. The rich is tired of seeing their crumbs being gobbled up by the masses that's to sorry to knock the flies off themselves.

I say what we need in this country is forced labor camps. Dead be parents for example, if they don't pay child support put their ass in a work camp, maybe after a little sweat and some blisters they will become a new person.

If you receive welfare you should have to work for it, cutting weeds beside the road, picking up garbage, clearing pastures for people willing to pay for their services. Some could take care of the children of those out working.

Food stamps, you eat you work, just that simple.

Maybe with Romney/Ryan this country will survive.
Finally good change

Ryan is a great guy with good ideas. Don't believe the lies about him wanting to cut medicare and and hurt old people. The truth is that Obama cut medicare's funding by $700 Billion dollars as part of Obamacare. Ryan will let people 55 and older keep the current medicare system, plus allow people that want the current system to use it when they get to where they can get on it. Seek the truth on this stuff, don't listen to lies.
LOL at you

Are you seriously that ignorant or are you just spewing trash? Those tax cuts DID create jobs and paid for themselves.

What are you talking about no gov't jobs? That is where the most job growth has been under Obama!!! My goodness. It amazes me sometimes how ignorant people can be. And when you show them the real facts they just start spouting stuff about how bad republicans are.

Are you serious? If jobs have been created, why is Paul Ryan himself saying 'where are the jobs Mr. President'? And there hasn't been any government growth. You need to check the numbers. I don't know where you get your information but it's seriously lacking in facts. The republicans are controlled by large corporations, like the ones that build military equipment and machinery. They have to keep feeding out these big contracts, but do they care about the soldiers. Bush cut military benefits for the men and women he and Cheney and Rumsfeld sent to Iraq and Afganastan time and time again, tour after tour. If you think those guys care about anything but money, you're bad wrong. And you don't have to resort to name calling. Of course, I guess the truth about your political affiliation hurts.

obama hired 1600 new irs agents.so there are some of the new government jobs.when these guys get rid of the rich they are coming for everyone else because they have to have a reason for working for the irs.paul ryan is talking about jobs in the private sector not the government.obama's mission as president is to create as much government dependency as possible to speed up the bankruptcy of the country.so obama is destroying every job in the private sector he can except for union jobs like uaw at gm and some of those union guys that he fired have never came back to work.he has tried to destroy ford and toyota while covering up countless complaints about gm products to cover for his union buddies and trying to make it look good for a company he will try to claim he saved while it is still in financial trouble he has destroyed jobs in mining and oil drilling in the meantime.

That's the point. The Bush tax cuts were suppose to help the private sector create jobs. It isn't working.
I'll keep trying to make it no matter who's president. I've worked for 30 years and I'll continue to work as long as I can. It just seems like there are not too many billionaires in these local communities, so I don't understand why we want to support such.
It's just hard to understand why poor or middle class people would support the likes of Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney. But, I can live with them if you can.

Typical Republican. You don't understand anybody's situation. Too closed minded to do so. Republicans have never created jobs. Tell me one who has made the economy better. Reagan and Bush senior created the deficit Clinton eliminated it then Bush Jr. brought it back. We refuse to vote like rich city folk. Our people have always been Democrats. If you want to vote like a rich Northerner go ahead even though there're coal companies are brainwashing some people around here we will vote Democrat .

You are a fool son. First of all Ford is union just like GM and Dodge. Most of Toyota parts are made in union factories. Theese companies needed the bailouts (that were BUSH'S idea) because of you Nissan, Honda, and Mercades driving Republicans. If not for unions your dumb ass would be living in a coal camp working for script. Once again you idiots are letting theese billionaire coal company owners take advantage of you by letting them persuade your vote. The Republicans are anti middle class and anti labor and they don't even try to hide it.

you are the dumb ass because that is the symbol of the democrat party-get it -dumb ass,that's why they use it as a symbol-to keep all you dumbasses in line with their thinking.you're the fool.it's democrats that drive mercedes-just go to washington d.c.and see how many drive mercedes and bmw's just like socialist in other countries.registered democrats are the largest group that drive toyota,hondas and kia's.you dumbasses don't know everything about coal for there is more then electricity that comes from coal.when coal is gone there will be things that people will not be able to get or it will cost a whole lot more.if you read my post you would see that ford is union but ford did not allow government into their management.and it's obama wiping out the middle class,it's against his beliefs that their should be a middleclass.and i doubt most toyota parts are made in union factories,they may have made some when they were partners with gm but i doubt if there would be many now.

If it wasn't for socialism we would not be here idiot. Do you think the caveman killed a mastodon and ate it in the feild? No, they brought it back and fed the elderly, children, and the disabled. You Republicans think it should be every man for himself. You forget about the little guy. Your beliefs are closer to communism ours are closer to socialism. I will do my part to help society go ahead and take care of yourself and see where it gets you. BTW Republicans are more likely to drive foreign cars, i just Googled it.

What a genius "less then 2 ...." its thank idiot. Keep voting like a rich cityboy let's see if we can survive another Republican. BUSH almost ended us. No one has still accepted my challenge to name a Republican who helped our economy. They created the depression and good ole Roosevelt saved us. They created the deficit and Bubba saved us. G.W.Bush got us back in debt and the right wing Congress shoots down every good idea Obama has. Back up your foolish talk with facts please.

Ever notice how most of these republicans just get mad and start calling people names? I hate to lump them all together, but it's a pattern that starts at the top. The republican leaders will not answer a direct question about what their economic plan will do to the middle and lower classes. They change the subject to Obama's birth certificate, or something completely unrelated to the economy. Please understand, they don't have a plan for the rest of us. Their plan is to get richer, and they don't care what happens to the rest of us lowlifes. That's how they see us. If you are not rich, then you're a loser. You're not greedy enough.
