Could someone answer this questions?

How does increasing taxes on those earning more then $250,000 a year, create new jobs?

Third straight month of retail sales drop, unemployment has been above 8% for a long time now, our national credit rating has dropped, number of people on food stamps has increased, but Obama is still clearly the better choice because Mitt Romney hasn't released his tax records. Liberal logic makes a two-year-old sound sensible.

Seriously, democrats, is that the best you can come up with? And if Obama wins reelection, then what others say about Americans being stupid is more true than I thought.

Your question has been addressed at great length on many other threads you posted the same question. The only thing you prove by reposting it over and over again is that you have no interest in listening to the people that respond to you.

@riverton cougar
hey look I can pick and choose from the report and article those things that make my position to support obama too. "Despite the lackluster spending in April through June, retail sales were still 4.7 percent higher in the second quarter than in the same period in 2011."
