Utah politicians excited by Mitt's choice
J Thompson said:
"Obama tells us that effort doesn't matter. Tell
that to the athlete who spends hours in the weight room exercising and even more
hours on the field honing his/her skills. ANY successful person will tell you
that they are successful because they worked. ANY unsuccessful person will tell
you that the other guy was "lucky".Actually it was mitt in
2002 who said that. “You Olympians, however, know you didn’t get
here solely on your own power,” said Romney, who on Friday will attend the
Opening Ceremonies of this year’s Summer Olympics. “For most of you,
loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided,
communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand
on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the
Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches, and communities. All
right! [pumps fist].”
worf keeps saying:
"He's denied us 600,000 jobs by not
agreeing to the Canadian oil pipeline." Boener admits stretching
it to 100,000, please give a reference for 600,000 jobs?
Worf: "Canada is now trucking oil to the Gulf of Mexico to be shipped to
China."Trucking it around America to Mexico? Seems like
taxing it properly to pass thru America would give the USA a nice import export
tax?TransCanada claims the pipeline will create 20,000 jobs. A
State Department report estimates that only 20 permanent operating jobs would be
created in the six states along the pipeline route. To get the 20,000 jobs #
they included 1,000's of bartenders and 300 plus "Exotic dancers"
Yes, Worf, something just doesn't sound right. Could it be because
everything in your post here is false?
Really J? Your use of the musicians analogy is quite interesting. I have
practiced my craft for many years, and am making the same if not less when
accounted for inflation than I did 10, 20 years ago, while "job creator"
venues raise their food, drink, and ticket prices, and cover charges have gone
up. Right there is the republican jobs plan, stick it to the working stiffs.
The economy is NOT turning around. More people are losing jobs every day. The
smoke and mirrors that Obama presents is just stage magic. He is lying to us
about everything. He lied about G.M. paying back the TARP money. G.M. used
TARP money to pay back a small portion of the entire bill, but Obama lied and
told us that G.M. had paid back the money.Obama tells us that effort
doesn't matter. Tell that to a musician who practices eight hours a day to
get to the skill level necessary to play professionally. Tell that to the
athlete who spends hours in the weight room exercising and even more hours on
the field honing his/her skills. ANY successful person will tell you that they
are successful because they worked. ANY unsuccessful person will tell you that
the other guy was "lucky".Romney knows how to work. Ryan
knows how to work. Obama knows how to talk and how to play golf. Is it any
wonder that under Obama, people talk about working as they sit on their couches
and collect money from Obama's deficit?
Worf: "half of our citizens are on welfare"Really? Do you have some proof of that?Are you, yourself, on Social
Security, Medicare, government retirement, military retirement, receive VA
benefits, Medicaid, Tri-Care, or any other government "welfare" that you
paid for for years, and earned?
Really, Mike Richards? Do you really believe that what you say in your post has
only been going on since Obama has been president? And the economy is starting
to turn around, slowly, but surely. If it continues to be slow, will you say
the same about Romney, should he become president? If it improves within the
next year, before Romney has a chance to do anything, will you give him credit?
I will be watching!By the way: Who is the "us" you talk
about? Not I!
The Democrats have been so skilled at lying that about 50% of the people believe
that some "rich guy" is going to pay for all of their personal wants.
They think that anything "given" to them by the government comes at no
cost. They believe that they are somehow entitled to make others work longer
hours at lower pay so that they can sit on their couches and make their demands
for "free government services".The awful truth is that Obama
has presided over a "change" that has changed us from desiring to be
self-reliant to desiring to let some "rich guy" feed us, clothe us, and
pay for our doctor bills.There is no "rich guy" who has
enough money to pay even the interest on those "free government
services". Even Obama has admitted that raising taxes on the "rich
guy" will only increase revenues to the government $60 billion a year -
while he increases the deficit twenty-five times that amount every year.Because Obama can't do simple math, he can't be our President.
His failure to "fix" the economy affects each of us personally. He is
unfit for office.
Republicans all over are going to support Romney whom they never really liked
and now Ryan that the love but know he can't get swing votes.All the more true the saying, "democrats fall in love, republicans fall in
A vote for Obama increases the welfare state. A vote for Romney increases
self-reliance. In November we will see what the American people choose.
Unfortunately for all of us, there IS a right answer and reality will not be
nice to us if we fail this test.
Obama has created thousands of jobs. Here's how he did it:*
sent our tax money to Finland and Mexico to build new auto plants.* sent
billions to Brazil for off shore drilling.* sent billions to the Muslim
Brotherhood.* sent billions to China, and Japan to produce windmills.* paid a company in Australia to build awindmill farm in Texas.Obama has done a great with creating jobs, but it wasn't for us. We just
paid for it.He's denied us 600,000 jobs by not agreeing to the
Canadian oil pipeline.Canada is now trucking oil to the Gulf of
Mexico to be shipped to China.Romney's tax returns are the
least of our concerns. If there was a problem, the IRS would have him in
jail.Harry says Mitt hasn't paid in ten years, while Obama says
he did, but just fifteen percent.Something doesn't sound right.
a bad choice but good for those of us who support our President
Hutterite,A major improvement would be a more accurate statement.
Romney is infallible here.
Democrats-- you're victims and deserve compensation. You'll qualify
for something if you look and complain enough. They want a nation of beggars to
depend on them.Republicans-- build self worth, and work for your
success. We'll help the truely needy.Obama? Half of our adult
population is on welfare, and can't pay any federal income tax. This may
be enough to win the next election. King Obama!
What else would you expect from Utah Republicans? In any case, if
you want a better economy and more responsible spending, the GOP is exactly the
wrong choice. Don't buy their propaganda. Reality says otherwise.
