    Mitt Romney and Massachusetts:

    1. When he left office Unemployment was 4.7 percent!

    2. When he came into office Massachusetts had a 2 Billion dollar deficit. He left up 300 million with a rainy day fund also established and funded!

    3. Mitt Romney accomplished these goals in a state with a legislature that was 85 percent Democrat!

    4. When Mitt Romney started Bain Capital it was a small business with 3 employees. Now it has 66 Billion in investment capital and employees 960 people and invests currently in about 120 companies. Bain capital projects when Mitt Romney was running it have created 867,000 jobs 115.8 billion in value and 43,000 properties paying taxes. Not bad for 1 venture capitalist company. In other articles I have listed the companies and details.

    5 We are talking about current issues now. And Obama is failing!

    1. 23.5 million unemployed
    2. 47 million on food stamps.
    3. 49 million living in proverty.
    4. 1.4 trillion deficit.
    5. 5.4 trillion in new debt
    6. Obama budget defeated in Senate 99-0
    7. Obama budget defeated in House 414-0

    7 of Obama's great accomplishments!
    Obama has Failed!

    Some folks seems to forget that Obama has been in office for 3.5 years already. Lots of talk, lots of "hope," lots of "change" . . . but basically tragic results. But, he has held 160 fundraisers ALREADY, there are more rich Democrats in Washington than there are rich Republicans, and many big-money special interest groups are supporting Obama in the favor-trade system. Plus, add in the fact that he has the big liberal media behind him, and he has many who like tax-and-debt-funded goodies but don't understand either economics, business, or government--and all of a sudden he becomes a force to be dealt with. You don't have to be the best (or even good) to get elected--you just need enough votes.

    Why Romney loss the economic battle:

    In a speech in Dover NH, September 12, 2008. Obama stated "I will cut taxes-for 95 percent of all working Americans". "When I'm President, we'll rewrite the tax code to work for the middle class- not Washington lobbyists". " That's change".

    "I will eliminate income taxes for seniors making less than $50,000".

    How could Mitt win the battle if Obama keeps his word.

    Can someone please explain to me how the worst President in the history of the United States, Barack Obama, knows anything about creating jobs. He has never made a payroll, he has never had to invest HIS money in a business. He has earned his paychecks off the backs of taxpayers. How can he even be in the same league with someone, and I mean anyone who has build a business from the ground up. He is the most pathetic President we have ever had in the Oval Office. What an embarrassment.

    Who killed the economy?.

    Jeb Bush is calling for a more moderate Republican Party one that he says his father George Bush and Ronald Reagan would embrace?. Because today's GOP has been moving more to the right and following a strict adherence to ideology. Jeb has emerged as the GOP’s voice of moderation at a time when the tea party has become increasingly popular and has called for a tighter ideological discipline. I am not here to make excuses for the shortcomings of George Bush or for Ronald Reagan nor am I a shill for Mitt Romney and claim allegiance to no political party. No organization owns my vote, I will give it to whoever I feel will serve the nation best regardless of the letter next to their name. Bureaucrats and politicians in Washington DC reminds me of "Elite Showdogs" that is an invitation-only e-mail list of long-time breeders, K Street and Wall Street exhibitors and judges that are judicial activist's. These politicians in Washington DC wear a GPS collar attachment to be found faster, walking them around using a chain in circles until their dizzy enough to cave into them.

    Last Friday President Obama said that the “private sector economy is doing fine”. The American voters will have a chance to express their opinion in November when he is up for re-election.

    I believe in America,and I am in favor of Mitt Romney winning the election against Pres. Obama; but I with he would not make degrading comments. Focus on the positive things that you can do to improve our economy and get America back in shape.
