Obama and Mitt Romney offer "two fundamentally different views" about
how to grow the economy and create jobs. Romney has a proven track record of
financial success that includes leaving $100 million in the bank when the 2002
Winter Olympics were over. Obama has a proven track record of financial
disaster.Last week the number of unemployed Americans rose yet
again. Time for a change in leadership.
bo is right. If we elect Mitt Romney, then the stalemate will end and jobs can
be created. bo has had 3.5 years with his "laser" focus that he
promised and he "wouldn't rest" until "every" American that
wanted a job has one.So either 50% of the country really didn't
want a job and live on welfare, or bo has failed miserably.nobama2012
The truth: ""Don't forget he's been president for 31/2 years.
Talk is cheap," Romney said.Let s return to a decade ago. I
would welcome that. Obama is the stalemate!
"Help me out- I am a little confused. Scott Walker balanced the budget
of Wisconsin, stopped the tax increases and in fact lowered the tax rate in a
little over two years. The proposals he has implemented helped lower the
unemployment rate and have brought business back to the state. In that time, the
Democrats ran away to another state, unions tried to remove him from office and
he was resoundingly attacked on many fronts, etc. President Obama
had historic majorities in Congress for over two years. He’s been in
office for almost four. He has spent historic amounts of money, pushed through a
new entitlement we can’t afford, bailed out companies and never passed a
budget. He has no tangible proposals on the table and blames everyone else for
his failures. We are $5 trillion more in debt, unemployment has gone up, taxes
are about to massively increase, businesses are not hiring and the economy is in
an historic malaise, with no end in sight. I’m sorry, his
excuse is what and we are supposed to give him four more years
because…?"From a blogger.
How about this barack. Why don't you create a budget for the first time in
your presidency. And a budget that doesn't require borrowing from the bank
of China or Japan or other countries.I would also like to see your
volunteer record, so I can compare it to Mitts 28 years of volunteering without
pay.I would also like to see your charitable contributions. That is
your money that you earned that you gave away.Barack has nothing to
run on, they have nothing on Mitt. Maybe if barack had focused on the economy
like he ran on and promised when he was a candidate and actually turned the
economy around then we would be debating health care etc.Instead he
used 3.5 years to shove social agenda issues down our throats, with no way to
pay for them except by borrowing more money. More money than Bush borrowed in 8
years. Money that barack himself is said was unpatriotic.Yet there a
few true believers in barack that can look past all of his lies and deceit, just
for the chance to live off of a nanny state.
@Liberal TedSorry, Most of Mitt's church service doesn't count
as volunteer work. Only the service projects, being a bishop or teaching a
lesson in elders quorum is not volunteer work. Same with charity. Giving money
to keep your church going, especially when the way you donate money is to assign
it to specific causes and the big 10% goes to building more churches, not
helping out the poor, with that being a different account and all. But ya, if
you want the George Bush policies that even 49% of republicans admit hurt the
economy than vote Mitt 2012. If you want to vote for the party of cowards vote
Democrat. If you want to actually change things consider voting for the only
other national candidate Libertarian Gary Johnson. As an aside if the
republicans don't tone down the crazy don't be surprised to see them
go the way of the Whig's and the libertarians take over as the other major
party. Young conservitives aren't the Tea Partiers, they are libertarians.
A new day, and a new handful of gripes from Ted. Romney's record of church
service is commendable, but irrelevant to being president, as is the fact that
it was "without pay". Puh-leeze. The same thing applies to a
person's charitable record. If Obama were to reply to all Ted's
demands, he'd just come up with new ones. I'd be more interested as to
whose backs get the Ryan budget balanced on them. We know it won't be the
rich, so that leaves those poor people Mitt says he doesn't care about.
Gary Johnson has my vote. He is constututional.Obama and Romney want
torture, ndaa, and to attack iran. When you look behind the campaign rhetoric
their ideals and policies are exactly the same.
How do you know what amount goes to help the poor and charitable donations? Why doesn’t his Church service count as volunteer work? Was he paid for
it? Did he not serve years as a Bishop and then as a Stake President and that
doesn’t mean for 1 hour a week, or a couple of hours a month. You
have no idea how much time it takes to serve the people in your church. He had
to deal with all kinds of problems, people dying - helping survivors, people
who are sick, helping the poor with food and clothing and job searches, etc.,
etc. I would say that his background counts more for service as
President than a community organizer ever has. Just show me how much time
obama has spent, without pay, helping anyone.. Has obama ever even run a
lemonade stand? What exactly qualifies obama to hold the highest job in the
Break the stalemate? The only "stale" thing is the Obama presidency.
Recall that during the first two years of the Obama reign of terror there was
ZERO opposition in congress to anything Obama wanted and that is what Barack
wants to go back to. Recall also the 2010 elections were all about the rage from
the American people about the previous two years where Obama and his democratic
controlled congress rammed anything and everything down the throats of the
American people and the American people shot back with a GOP landslide for the
2010 elections. "I think a change will do you good" (Cherl
I soooooo look forward to the day where I don't have to see or hear the
word "Obama" in the news anymore. Wow - what a relief!! Let Barack
disappear back into community organizing again. What a nightmare
this man has been!!!
I say keep that stalemate going. According to some economists, the best
situation for job growth is a divided congress. This is due to the simple fact
that when the House and Senate are busy fighting eachother, they don't do
anything else, so we don't get goofy laws passed and new regulations.If I had confidence that all the Republicans would act responsibily and
do like their counterparts did during the 1940's, getting rid of nearly all
of Obama's regulations, taxes, and new agencies, then I would hope for
The only way a "stalemate" will be broken is if one party has the White
House, the House majority, and the Senate majority with 60 votes or more. Obama
had that for a while in the first months of his presidency. Otherwise, even if
Obama gets re-elected, we likely will have Republicans in charge in Congress and
Obama will go on making law without Congress. Witness todays immigration policy
change. Until the Republicans grow a spine and create a "constitutional
crisis" about how Obama goes around them, things won't change.
Hopefully, Romney wins, and a continuation of what was started in 2010 will
result in the Republicans having all the power. Then we will see if they can
solve the problems that the Democrats obviously cannot.
Obama has been such a great president. More jobs then when he took office, a
stock market that has doubled. Those are the facts. 4 more years!
Mr X: what planet do you live on? There are fewer people in the work force
than in the 1940's. Our credit rating has been downgraded for the first
time in history. People on food stamps used to be something like 1 family per 70
people working, under obama it is 1 in 7. Do you think that is sustainable?
Are you kidding me? 47% of the people are not paying federal tax. What will
happen when the people paying the bills just move away? What is going to happen
when businesses close up shop and move to other countries? Do you really think
they are going to stay in the U.S.? They are not hiring now because of the obama
regulations that make hiring a real problem.If he doesn't loose you
can kiss your country as you know it bye, bye. He has resets going on with
Russia, under the wire, so that we don't know what he is doing. How much
he is selling our our security. Space program gone - OK no problem, china is
putting people in space. Do you see any problem with that? I do!
There is no stalemate. America is holding it's breath hoping that nothing
catastrophic happens (other than the current state of affairs) before we can
vote Obama out!
Stalemate? How about stubbornest and inability to lead.
