And Wildcat, Huntsman, are you kidding me. I think Huntsman is as sneaky and
corrupt as Obama. Huntsman to me is the Jane Fonda. If this confuses you, do
some homework and you will see what I mean.
@ WildcatYou will see a more detailed plan by Romney now that the
conventions are over. When you play poker you don't lay your cards on the
table face up. The campaign trail and debates will be key factors from this
point on. This will cause trouble for Obama since his plan appears to be pretty
much steddy eddie and run with the same plan he started with. To cut taxes for
corporations and business is a good thing, this helps create more jobs. To take
in less revenue? If you can create more jobs, strengthen the economy, revenue
no longer is a problem. Repeal ObamaCare is a good thing, Health Care did not
need to be replaced in the first place, so why worry about replacing ObamaCare
now. You say along with the tax cuts to Medicaid, changes to Medicare and
Social Security. We are being bleed dry in these areas, why not make some
changes. And take money from the low and middle class, now your just being
MSNBC without facts. This is just not true. I do agree congress needs to work
better, but I am thankful for the GOP protection thus far.
@RiflemanIt does matter if Romney had a better plan.If
Mitt Romney offered a detailed plan of what he hopes to do to make the economy
better and it made sense, I would consider voting for him. His economic plan is
to cut taxes, take in less revenue, repeal Obamacare, without replacing it. This
along with his cuts to medicaid and changes to medicare and social security
would take even more money out of the low and middle classes.With
the low and middle classes having even less money to spend, that will drive
demand down, which will drive supply or jobs down, and we will be in the same
mess as in 2008. I think the deal that was almost reached before the Christmas
break two-for-one in terms of spending cuts for new revenue showed Obama was
trying to work with Republicans. It will take both parties to
cooperate to move this country forward. Clinton did it with the GOP Congress in
the 90s, but this GOP said they wanted to defeat Obama before he took office. I
won't vote for such selfishness.Huntsman would have had it
rapped up for the GOP by now.
Re: Wildcat O-town, UT"It's the economy, stupid" is a
slight variation of the phrase "The economy, stupid" which James
Carville coined for Bill Clinton's campaign. Don't you
think it should still apply?
Obama and his claim on jobs, is like eating a cheeseburger with no cheese. Yes
he created 4.5 Million Jobs, he also is responsible under his reign of power to
lose 5 Million. Mr. President, that means you are still 500k in the hole. He
takes claim for the GM Bailout and saving the auto industry, a bailout that Bush
started in 2008. He takes claim for killing Bin Laden because he gave go ahead.
Again, something that started and was able to be finished because of the intel
that began under Bush. Isn't it funny how Obama has no problem
blaming Bush for his inherited problems, and at the same time has no problem
inheriting the things Bush started that he uses as his main platform while
running for re-election. "Osama Bin Laden is Dead, and GM is alive" to
quote Joe.Obama has failed, he claims he has a plan and it is no
different than his first plan. After watching his speech last night, he knows
he might be in trouble. He "plead(ed)", his word not mine, for people
to vote for him again. It's time to go.
There's no hope for hope.Hopefully general conference will be aired
on all major news channels during romneys reign.;) that will be sweet
Doesn't matter really - the clueless zombies that vote for Obama don't
care about jobs reports or national debt or unemployment projections of 9.2%
next year etc... The bottom line here is America is sadly full of folks who
don't bother to educate themselves - they think the national debt is
something that is nothing more than a mysterious number that will just get
resolved with no consequences. Just keep borrowing and printing more money. In
two years when those who lend to us jack up the rates in a major way BECAUSE of
our out of control debt there is going to come an interest rate CRISIS that will
shock alot of folks seeing that it will touch home loans, car loans , business
loans etc.... At that time I wonder what the blame game will be then? Whose
fault will it be? The GOP has been warning of this - is NOW warning of this and
the democrat's are ignoring it. You could see an explosion of
bankruptcy's that rival 2008! If we change our monetary policy now this
could be avoided but only the GOP is willing to do that.
“Pelosi said Obama and the Democrats had plenty of plans to create more
jobs and boost the economy but Republicans "keep standing in the way”
They weren’t in the way in 2009 when you controlled the WH AND
congress, you failed Nancy.“Ben LaBolt tried to shift the
focus to…the track record of the Bush administration.” Bush
ain’t running. Wait, they claim the porkulus worked! Why
the week economy if it worked?Lowest participation in the job market
since 1981.Joe Blow,1/3 of the porkulus was entitlements, NOT
related to economic development.It’s funny, the house PASSES jobs
bills, harry reid stops them in the senate. Point of clarification,
please, because I don’t really know – did Romney say there would be
12 million new jobs, or he would implement policies in the first term that would
lead to 12 million jobs? thanksTruthseeker,When did BO
disavow the claim by the HEAD of HIS council of economic advisors that it
wouldn’t exceed 8%? he used the claim to sell his failed porkulus,
whether he uttered the words or not.
Gotta love the Romney Reader. This same paper used the same modifier when the
W. was in office. "Only" 500,000 jobs lost this month compared with
today's "Only" 96,000 gained. Hey Romney Reader, why
didn't Romney thank the troops or mention Afghanistan in his convention
while he's mentioning all the new fronts he wants to send them to. Seems
like you would need to do a story on that to polish that dirty penny.
Come on now. Obama saved GM. Never mind what the CEO of GM said. 70 percent
of all cars made by GM are made outside of the US. Does this mean Obama is the
outsource champion of the business world? Last night he derided outsourcing,
but his administration has financed Brazilian oil development, china solar
development, overseas car manufacturing. He claimed in his speech that a new
president with no foreign policy experience (Mitt) would bungle the job. Does
this mean that Obama with no experience has bungled the job for the past three
and a half years. It is so wonderful to support a president that in his
acceptance speech tells us in his own words how bad a job he has done for the
past few years. Go Obama.
One and done.
It amazes me how some of these comments clear the "civil" screen the DN
states is mandatory. Seems the "screener" supports extremists on the
Just think, if we can get enough of the airhead pop culture crowd to turn out
for the election, like they did in 2008, just to get BHO re-elected - then he
can become the only president ever to "inherit" the "worst economy
since the great depression" twice! Of course he would have to have the full
support of all the lame leftists and weak minded moderates too.
re:Chris B"barack said that unemployment wouldnt reach 8%."False.The claim is rooted in a report called "The Job
Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan" from Christina Romer,
then chairwoman of the president's Council of Economic Advisers, and Jared
Bernstein, the vice president's top economic adviser. It was issued on Jan.
9, 2009, before President Barack Obama took office.The report also
came with heavy disclaimers (due to the unknown scope and evolving economic
crisis):"It should be understood that all of the estimates
presented in this memo are subject to significant margins of error."
"But barack said 3 years ago if he was given his first 787 billion
spendathon that unemployment wouldnt reach 8%."One
clarification. over 1/3 of that was TAX CUTS. Not spendathon. And
Obama was wrong on a number of things. Imagine. A politician who makes
promises that are not kept.Like "I will bring gas prices down to
$2 per gallon."or "NO NEW TAXES"And if
Romney wins, will you hold him to 12 MILLION new jobs by the end of the first
term?I find it funny. Obama proposes Jobs bills. The Republicans
vote them all down and then blast him for not creating jobs.I think
Obama has not done a very good job. I think the R and D in congress has done
worse.Is Romney the answer? Doubtful. But if he wins, I will give
him my full support and hope that he turns out to be the best president ever.
But the unemployment dropped. Nevermind that hundreds of thousands dropped out
of the force. We'll look at the unemployment number dropping. That's
the only important thing.
But barack said 3 years ago if he was given his first 787 billion spendathon
that unemployment wouldnt reach 8%.It soared to 12%.It's still over 8%3yearslater
