Romney-Ryan Debate - Nashville, TN
Discuss the national Romney-Ryan debate in Nashville, TN.
Are you happy that Romney picked Paul Ryan as his VP?

1. Jobs not being created
Don’t let the official 7.8 percent unemployment rate for September fool you; work-force participation is at a record low and 23 million American are looking for work. Ten times as many people have dropped out of the work force during Obama’s term than have found a job. His last attempt at helping the unemployed—the 2009 stimulus package—cost nearly a trillion dollars with minimal impact on creating actual jobs.
2. Debt crisis spiraling
Under Obama, the nation has accumulated nearly $6 trillion in debt over four years and a second term would likely add more. The cost of financing the national debt will quickly skyrocket as interest rates rise. Obama’s only plan to staunch the bleeding is to tax the rich. But even if he succeeds in letting the Bush tax cuts expire for families with incomes over $250,000, the annual deficit of $1.2 trillion would only fall to $1.12 trillion.
3. Obamacare outrages
Obama’s signature achievement—the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—is more unpopular today than it was when he signed it into law. Obamacare adds to the deficit, while raising taxes on Americans of all stripes, even while harming job creation. Many families will lose their current health care coverage and surveys of doctors show many will flee the profession.
4. Foreign policy unraveling
The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi—and the administration’s incompetence after—is a dramatic example of the unraveling of Obama’s entire approach to foreign policy. Now Muslim mobs are protesting the United States around the world, apparently unswayed by Obama’s Cairo outreach. Add his ill-fated Russia “reset,” and his snub of world leaders at the United Nations and the result is a foreign policy with not a single positive achievement.
5. Economic anemia
We didn’t expect a rapid recovery after the recession, but we’re past a point where the economy should have begun to show steady growth as businesses become more confident, hire workers and consumer spending increases. But growth this year is under 2 percent. With crushing burdens and uncertainties heaped onto businesses—from Dodd-Frank and Obamacare to EPA regulations and tax hikes—Obama has managed to defy the business cycle.
6. Class warfare rhetoric
Obama has taken class warfare to a new level, attacking the successful as being greedy and heartless for not paying their fare share. He demonizes bankers, Wall Street and demands that the “millionaires and billionaires” be taxed at higher rates. The irony of it all is that his policies will do the most harm to the middle class, with his job killing programs, and small businesses, by hiking their taxes.
7. Partisan politics
Unlike Presidents Reagan, H.W. Bush, Clinton, and G.W. Bush who all reached across the aisle to secure legislation with bipartisan support, Obama has tried to ram through his agenda without any help, as many of his major initiatives failed to attract a single GOP vote. For a president who promised change, he has only increased its harshness by constantly attacking the opposition.
8. No more Biden
After his debate with Paul Ryan, Vice President Joe Biden’s “regular-guy” schtick is wearing thin. His smirking and laughing, when the nation wanted to hear a serious debate on the issues, was demeaning to the office, and makes the idea of “Crazy Joe” being a heartbeat away from the presidency a sobering thought. We can only hope that with a Romney-Ryan victory, Biden will go ahead and get a one-way Amtrak ticket back to Delaware, or better yet, Scranton, Pa.
9. Clean house of incompetents
It’s not only the anticipation of Biden’s departure from office that gives cheer, but finally the nation can get rid of the whole gang that couldn’t shoot straight. From White House spokesman Jay Carney and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s cloudy account of the Libya attack to Attorney General Eric Holder’s outrageous obfuscation on Fast and Furious, we’ve seen quite enough of Chicago-style politics.

10. No plan for future
Just as Obama has found it hard to run on his record, his constant attacks on Romney mask the fact that he doesn’t have much of a plan to turn things around. A president’s normal route for pushing an agenda is often contained in his annual budget request to Congress. Obama’s spending blueprint is such a joke that every year it is the Republicans that introduce it as a bill and then both sides of the aisle unanimously vote against it. His only plan is to tax and spend the U.S. into oblivion, with future generations crushed by a mountain of debt.

...Despite the treachery of the republican House and GOP leadership, President Obama has been able to take this economy, from the ditch where Bush left it, and move us into a healthy recovery.....Among the positive economic indicators....Retail sales up, Home construction up 15%, highest level in 4 years, Consumer confidence up, Auto sales up and consistantly setting records, Building permits up, signaling future construction, Durable goods orders up, meaning a rise in manufacturing, House and condo prices rising, Dow-Jones at 13,500(7400 during Bush), Foreclosures down, Unemployment down....NO QUESTION.....FOUR MORE YEARS....

Who stopped the legislature to create jobs? Who voted against equal pay for women? Who voted for legislature and then pulled a filibuster to stop the legislature to help veterans get jobs? Who stopped the legislature that would take away the tax break for moving jobs out of the country and put in a tax break to move jobs back to America?
Where did Romney Care (you know socialist medicine in Mass) come from? Who was responsible for ignoring 8 CIA reports about Bin Laden and terrorist attacks on our soil? Who created the bus line for Illegal's to get from the border to Illinois?
Who created tax cuts and passed Medicare prescription coverage with NO plan to pay for it? Who spent 1.26 Trillion dollars on two wars without ever putting it in any budget....ever?
Who caused Halliburton stock value to increase by 788 percent while passing tax cuts that allows them not to pay taxes on the income from those two wars?
Who has a racist agenda?
There is only one answer for all of these questions.
REPUBLICANS! PLAIN AND SIMPLE! REPUBLICANS!

This is what needs to be done. Look at the map. All the red states but one are joined together physically. Each red state needs to take away every job of every illegal without benefits. There is a total of 24 red states. Let the capital of blue United Socialist States of America take the red states of the United States of America to the Supreme Court of the USSA and each governor and legislature of the red states agree the supreme court of their state is the Supreme Court. Does the red states have the nerve to stand up to Washington. It can't be done individually, each state, but has to be done collectively as a whole.

And people wonder if the Republican party is racist. Here is proof. Dividing up the country....like back in the Civil war days. Unbelievable, just typing that post of yours screams that you are a RACIST! Plain and Simple!
Real Fact: The states with the most welfare recipients are Red.
Real Fact: More than half of all welfare recipients are white.
Another Real Fact: The current President of the United States of America has deported more illegal immigrants then ANY OTHER PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY of our country. More in a year than the last one did in eight years.
I would post more facts but your to stupid to do the research for yourself and actually see what the REAL FACTS are.

racist. you socialists sure do love to use that word. that was the strategy of the ASP in 2008 and it is working today. Talk about Bill Clinton's socialism wasn't racist nor Jimmah's nor LBJs. won't go back further for the sake of your brain. Nice strategy nominating and electing a person with African on the paternal side but never mention the communism of the white maternal side. black father + white mother=black. You hang in there with your lies, The Real Truth

Yes, the states with the most welfare recipients are red, except the socialist strategists painted the red states blue for red communism. Your red states painted blue contain Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Newark, Cleveland, Chicago, San Francisco, the home of Mikhail Gorbachev, the third world country of Detroit. Los Angeles, and you want us to believe there are more welfare recipients in the Dakotas, Nebraska, South Carolina than the red states of Florida, California, New England with the rest of the northeast, not to mention the socialist capital DC. That's your story and you're sticking to it. The Real Truth, your name is the equivalent of an animal whose daddy was an elephant and mother a kangaroo, a hopping elephant.
