Wow, finally a DNews editorial that totally nails the political situation that
Obama finds himself in! Unfortunately it fails to mention the elephant in the
living room, and that is no one will be able to lead this country until we start
forging a national consensus on some key issues. If Romney wins, the left will
considerate it payback time, with the one goal of making Romney a one term
president, and we will continue with political deadlock. There is no way that
the charisma challenged Mitt will be able to unite the country behind the
fanciful conservative agenda.It won't matter who we elect in November
unless the far, far, right comes back to the rational center.
The good news for dems. is they did grow a spine last night and spent the entire
time touting the many accomplishments of this President, and they put faces on
those accomplishments. Almost no blame last night just bragging. The bad news
for everyone is the road out of the current situation isn't a short country
path. The road to well paying value added, american exclsive jobs, is simply a
long slogging grind. New industries need to be created, and a population needs
to be re-trained. The creation of 12million low paying service oriented jobs
won't build a future, and that's what's happening now. Contrary
to popular belief on this thread dependency is not a natural american trait.
Dependency is created when you live in an econonmy where you can't support
yourself. We won't get there by cutting education, de-regulating old
industries, and cutting resources needed to invest in the future. Sorry folks
debt is not the worst thing facing this country..no future is.
His biggest obstacle is HIS record. No one to blame but himself.
The biggest challenges being; the divisiveness, incompetence, condescension,
hard left social policies, unpopular policies and economic failure of his first
Now Romeny is the "hope and change" candidate. Too bad he can't
actually utter those words since they now hate the words. Obama is
cleaning up the mess just fine. Republicans want to lower my boss's taxes
and raise mine. They'll make life harder for me just like they did during
the Bush years. No thanks!
screwdriver,Your boss is currently paying 10 times more than you in
taxes. You want him to pay 20 times more than you in taxes. Why? When your
boss drives on the road does his car do 20 times the damage to the road that
your car does simply because he is richer?Shouldnt your boss pay for
his damage to the road and you pay for your damage to the road?Does
your boss use 20 times the police force than you do? Why don't
you pay for what you USE and your boss pay for what he/she USES?Just
another example of liberals wanting someone else to pay their bills.Your boss probably paid $50,000 in taxes last year and you paid probably
$10,000.It seems he's already paying for what you use. I hope
you don't teach your kids to make others pay their bills. Such is the
liberal lifecycle. Kids who are taught that others should pay their bills grow
up to be adults who believe others should pay their bills.
@Screwdriver: You have bought into the baseless lie that the Democrats are fond
of telling about Romney wanting to raise taxes. The president apparently hopes
that if he repeats it enough, people will eventually believe him, and it appears
to be working. Tell me exactly where Romney ever said anything about raising
Unfortunately the only choice is a choice between two bad choices, but of those
two bad choices Obama appears to be the best choice for the future of America
and the world. Romney would be a disaster for middle class America and the
Sorry, invisible hand, but all the pricing of Romneys tax proposal...a proposal
that lowers rates and eliminates deductions, say it will raise taxes on middle
and lower income earners up to $6,ooo a year..and it lowers taxes on upper
How to win a second term with a dismal first term? Good question. Obama has been
a train wreck that few saw coming in 2008. Now the guy is exposed as an
incompetent socialist and there is no where to hide ... actually MSNBC, NBC and
other have attempted to provide some nice hiding places for poor little Barack.
This little man - like his prototype Jimmy Carter - is way too small for the job
at hand and it's like Clint told us at the RNC - "when a guy
doesn't do the job ya gotta let him go".
