    what an incredible political ploy. eight years of bush economic policy sent our nation into a financial tailspin. so obama spends a few years trying to bring us from the depths of disaster and now romney and others blame our woes on him.
    the sad part is that so many people will fall for it. republicans will repeat their claims over and over (if you tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth) to plant it into Americans' brains.
    i would like to hear a republican politician try to back up their economic theory with proven facts. when has any government ever increased revenue by lowering effective tax rates? where is the empirical evidence that supports the claim that cutting taxes to and deregulating big business leads to more jobs?
    the "trickle down" theory doesn't work. never has. the only prosperity gained by such policy goes to a relative handful of business owners and stock shareholders. instead of creating jobs, businesses simply pocket higher profits.

    You forget that Prsident Obama didn't cause the problems -- that was George Walker Bush. Obama has had to use draconian measures (some successful, some not) to clean up Bush's mess. You're doing the equivalent of blaming the messenger for someone else's message.

    When/where did Romney create jobs?

    I DO know that he cost a lot of people their jobs and/or financial welfare when he was at Dain "saving" companies.

    2 cents;; What planet do you live on. In what universe has Obama placed curses on americans. He is doing his best, with No help from republicans, to clean up Bush's republican mess. I think he's doing a great job, and will get re elected easily. Who is gonna beat him. Sarah Palin and her Paul Revere story? Michele Bachman and her concept of fact and history? The front runner is Romney. His only business experience is buying companies and closing them down to make himself richer. Create jobs? What a joke. The whole republican party is a sorry mess. 2012 will be our finest hour. We will take the house back, and keep the presidency. BET on IT.

    I find it interesting that these guys want government out of the way of business, yet when business doesn't do well, they want the government involved (especially when business wants a bailout). They can't have it both ways.

    As a point man for the Nation, Huntsman is doing a good job so far to expose Obama's inequity and lies, that is how Obama has to be treated to beat him. However they must also keep it in the back of their minds that Obama's secret weapon and voting powers are still hiding in the background as illegal aliens right now.

    It is Obama's hope that he can get amnesty and voting powers to all 50 million illegal aliens before the next election. Obama has been staging this for the last 2 years visiting Texas, Arizona, and Mexico telling all of these Latino's they have the same enemy, the American citizens and the constitution and sovereignty of the United States.

    Huntsman is a good front man but I don't think he is able to lead this country out of its problems and the curses Obama has placed on us as Americans.
