    Fakery and deception and everyone is buying into jobs as if jobs were the holy grail to get an economy to recover from collapse.

    I guess if you want to believe slavery is a job that is your privilege and if you just want something to do 16 hours a day without pay or compensation for your labor get a republicans job. I have to include the president in this group as he is also a Socialists DINO.

    Now lets talk prosperity and the pursuit of happiness for the American and US citizens now that we have put the rest of the world to a state of prosperity based on the American dream we once had in the US. Jobs means nothing, prosperity and wages means everything.

    A million slave jobs cannot add prosperity to an economy or society like prosperity of one single well paid working person. The US workers are seeking the wrong path to prosperity, they should be seeking the money directly from the business owners hoarding and hiding their wealth. Taxing the business owners and wealthy just feeds government, we need to feed this wealth to the the workers as a share of their invested labors.

    It is sad that even in Utah a regular person is not allowed to go to cheer on Mitt. Imagine $500 a plate for a dinner or even $1000 is beyond measure but $10,000 or ...gasp $50,000 a plate.

    Come on lets get on the scale of the people we are supposed to represent.....or perhaps that is exactly the level of people Mr. Romney is representing,

    "Sell" is the right word. As usual, Romney is selling a line without substance. His economic plan is to go back to the programs of GWBush -- the plans that got us in this mess in the first place and cost the country a heck of a lot of jobs in the process. Add to that the fact that President Obama tried to work with the Republicans at every turn (including using the Republican plan from the Clinton era as the basis for his health care plan), and they blocked anything that would help the country just so they could make political hay. There is no evidence that Romney would be better than President Obama, and a lot of evidence that he would be worse.

    Rifleman (3:42 p.m. 6/9/2010) -- the "back of the bus" comment was made in October 2010 -- almost two years after President Obama started trying to work with Republicans and met obstruction at every turn. Of course he could (and should) have chastized them more diplomatically, but the frustration he must have felt at their refusal to do what was right for the country could understandably made him frustrated; hence the comment.

    "If Romney wins, I hope the Democrats, on his first day in office, get up and say they will do everything possible to make him a one term President."

    The mark of a good leader is to develope a bipartisan relationship with the opposing political party. Obama was quoted as saying: "They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back." The GOP simply took him at his word.

    Mitt Romney will demonstrate the advantages of working together for the common good of the people.

    Obama inherited an economic mess from Bush. The nation is recovering, but "not fast enough" says Romney. He proposes to return this nation to the economic policies of Bush -- the ones that started this mess in the first place.

    We were fooled once, shame on Bush. If we are fooled by Romney, shame on us.

    It is kind of hard to accomplish anything as president when congress is not on your side. If the republicans retain the house and the democrats retain the senate and if Romney becomes president, should the democrats constantly vote against Romney?

    It only seems fair that if the house against Obama, that the senate should be against Romney.
