'Not the economy? GOP campaign focuses elsewhere' - Title

This, is good strategy.

Because while President Obama, who was born in Hawaii, poll numbers have been suffering on the economy....

the GOP's history on the economy, is worse.

As exampled by:

"We've added, in the last eight years, $4 trillion of debt to the nation's obligations." Rahm Emanuel on Sunday, January 18th, 2009 in a news interview
When Bush took office, the national debt was $5.73 trillion. When he left, it was $10.7 trillion. Politico

*'Eight years in office, a $10.6 trillion debt' - By David M. Dickson - December 15, 2008 - Washington Times
'President Bush has nearly doubled the national debt during his eight years in the White House.'

*'Iraq war could cost taxpayers $2.7 trillion' - By David Goldman - CNN - 06/12/08
'...told members of Congress that the war costs taxpayers about $430 million per day...'

Now, what would be a good thing when Americans, are unemployed?

Ok. No loans for private jobs. No unemployment.

How about goverment jobs? 'Made in America?'

*'Let Detroit Go Bankrupt' - By Mitt Romney - NY Times - 11/18/08

Well, how did Mitt Romney do on job creation?

Mitt Romney on Job creation:
From 2003-2007 job growth....0.9%.
In rankings with the rest of the country...MA was 47th in Job creation when Mitt Romney was there.

That's because they know that if the economy gets better, they can take credit; if it stays bad or gets worse, they can blame Obama!

"They know that if ...... the economy gets gets worse they can blame Obama"

When Obama told the GOP "We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back" it probably didn't help his cause. When you belittle someone don't act surprised when they don't give you a helping hand.

GOP campaign focuses elsewhere, with their head in the sand?.

Here's how "the RINO's all lie". Herman Cain, a one-time pizza magnate and tea party conservative, is surging in GOP polls, (wow, a whole 12 percent from zero), partly because of his unabashed criticism of the Wall Street protests. Although the protests left many GOP contenders tongue-tied at first as they tried to gauge which way the wind was blowing, Cain didn't hesitate in condemning the incipient protests as an attack on American capitalism. He accused the anti-Wall Street protesters of being jealous of other people's money and turning themselves into victims. First off, no one likes your Pizza, secondly, it's the Koch Brother's that are turning themselves into victims, not the the Wall Street protesters. That's why I say "tax the rich" until they bleed out from their billions. Then we the people will put them all on min wage. Not, that's true "American capitalism", trickle down chump change, while we all rot. ONE MORE THING - Important: Do You Support Pres. Obama's Re-Election? Vote Here Now!.

Push 1.) for YES

Push 2.) for maybe

Push 3.) depends how much more "the RINO's will lie".

NEW POLL

How Well Do You Know Your Romney?

Have To Know Now?

Skip the quiz and get the facts. On Roe V. Wade

Which of the following statements has Mitt made?

"I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years that we should sustain and support it. And I sustain and support that law and the right of a woman to make that choice."

"And that is why, as a pro-life Republican, I am in favor of having the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade."

All of the above

Next Answer: All of the above.

Obama in 2012?.

We'll see.

I find it ironic that the media creates all these distractions (Perry and the rock, Romney and the cult, Cain and his race...) to keep them from discussing the real issues.
