Let's be real here - 171k jobs added and 170k new unemployment filings
today. You add a shovel of dirt and then you remove a shovel of dirt and the end
result is the hole is the same as before. Obama-nomics is not working and
isn't going to work. It has been 4 years of dismal job numbers and high
unemployment and enough is enough. 4 years is more than enough to see if the
guys plan is working and it isn't. 4 more years is only going to be more of
the same and there is absolutely zero evidence that Obama and HIS liberals can
point to that will change that thinking. ZERO! A vote for Obama is a vote for
more unemployment - possibly your unemployment!! Each fresh move from Obama is
only a fresh mistake and this new Biz cabinet position is a joke ... just
shuffling the cards and nothing more. Mitt was right - what we really need is
NOT some new cabinet post but instead a president who actually understands
To patriot 8:29 a.m. Nov. 2, 2012 Mitt was right - what we really
need is NOT some new cabinet post but instead a president who actually
understands business!!-------------------Maybe, but that
does not describe Mitt. The only thing he knows how to do is take over
companies, load them with debt, gouge them for "management" fees off the
top, destroy their woerkers' compensation and benefits and retirement, and
then when he/they have gouged the company for all they can get just take it into
bankruptcy. Mitt is NOT what this country needs if it wants to prosper.
"Romney said in a statement. 'When I'm president, I'm going
to make real changes that lead to a real recovery, so that the next four years
are better than the last.' "Every top economist has said
that the economy IS recovering. It won't matter who is office we will be
adding 2.5 million to 3 million jobs each year now. So when Romney announces
that HE will create 12 million new jobs! Well Willard, It will happen
anyway!We need to see SPECIFIC plans! What tax deductions is he going to
end? What federal agencies is he trying to eliminate? He has already said that
he wants to privatize FEMA! Instead of 70 deaths with Super storm Sandy we
could have lost 1,000 people. But we had efficient weather forecasting and
IMMEDIATE response. Romney/Ryan wants to slash the budget of the CDC! The FDA!
We absolutely need these agencies.I can just see having Bain
Capital replacing FEMA..."Bottled water..$10.00. Tuna fish sandwich-$25!
Great way to handle a crisis..NOT!Romney! We need to see your tax
returns!! What are you hiding? Who are you? Republicans Colin Powell, Mayor
Bloomberg, Governor Christie endorse OBAMA!
barack claimed from day one he would have a laser focus on the economy and work
to increase the number of jobs in this country.Instead he borrowed
money and gave it to other countries to produce more oil, and then told them
that we'll be their biggest customer. He shoved obamacare down the throats
of everyone, even going against members of his own party (he promised bipartisan
work on it), he promised unemployment would be down to the 5% range at this
time, he promised to be out of Iraq and Afghanistan (we are still in both
countries), he promised to be the most transparant government ever instead he
used executive privelage and refuses to tell the truth about Benghazi, he also
has kept WH records blocked from anyone looking at them (more times than bush),
he promised to close gitmo and didn't, he promised to bring the country
together (instead he is divisive on every issue), he promised to not raise taxes
on anyone making $250,00 or less (all of our taxes are going up after the
election).One lie after another....this worthless regime makes
carter days seem like a day at the beach.
I pray mitt wins. Everyday...But, I'm worried it's to close now.
Nuchsler1Romney! We need to see your tax returns!! What are you
hiding? Who are you? Republicans Colin Powell, Mayor Bloomberg, Governor
Christie endorse OBAMA!If you think Collin Powell and blunder berg
are rebub, your under educated I'm sorry.Christie? That's
@patriotYou bought that Fox nonsense. Okay here's how it works. The
171k is the number of jobs created minus the number of jobs lost last month. The
170k new unemployed does not mean their jobs were lost (well, they lost their
job, but the job isn't necessarily gone, if someone else gets that position
it's not a lost job from the economies standpoint). So... comparing unlike
terms to bolster a political argument... how desperate...
@AggieloveMy best friend's father was a great professor at Utah
State. An ambassador to England and Ceylon. He would be embarrassed by your
crass remark about my being "uneducated."You can have your
own opinions but you cannot slander someone if their opinion is different from
yours!General Colin Powell was the General over the Joint Chiefs of
Staff. He was a model soldier and espoused President Eisenhower's moderate
Republican stance. He is a great man..not a "Repub!" My husband died
in Iraq...a 30 year military officer. I have great respect for our military.
Shame on you for slandering General Powell! I can tell that you have NEVER
served your country. Just as Mitt Romney dodged the draft for the Vietnam War
by going to Paris for his mission. Such comments as your do NOT
belong in the comments section of the Deseret News.
@ atl134,So unemployment remains the same, in fact went back up . . . I
don't see the progress, or "change" in that?!@
Nuschler1,Before Hurricane Sandy, Governor Christie was backing Romney, so
I wouldn't put too much stock into his choice, pretty inconsistent if you
ask me. Also, is that what Romney did with Massachusetts? Or the Olympics? Face
it, Romney knows how to get organizations out of the red and that is something
that this country needs desperately. Obama simply hasn't done the job. Even
though he promised to cut the deficit. He was either naive and ignorant or lying
when he made that comment. Yet, he still borrows from other countries to pay for
things like oil drilling in Brazil (when we could do it here!) and to the Muslim
Brotherhood. Obama isn't doing his job and should add to the unemployment
number next month.
@Nuschler1Benedict Arnold was a great General, highly decorated and
one of the best military minds. Doesn't mean I don't disagree with
his political stance. Just because you have served this country in the military
doesn't make all of your opinions superior to others. With that said,
I'm sorry for your loss and the sacrifices made by your family.Just to point out that barack never served in the military either. He created
his "choom" gang that smoked pot and did drugs while skipping classes.
Mitt chose to go to college and volunteered to serve people for over 2 years.
Which he continued to do when he came back. He also did not accept a wage as
governor.Baracks net worth before he became president over $1
million. Since he has been in office it has grown to over $11 million. Check
his pay. The math doesn't add up. Which means he has investments, which he
gets to decide where stimulus money goes to....if he would release the papers
and be as transparant as he claimed to be then our minds would be at ease with
his honesty. Until then it looks very suspicious.
@ SS"So unemployment remains the same, in fact went back up . . . I
don't see the progress, or "change" in that?!"Weren't you all complaining last month that unemployment
"conveniently" fell from 8.2% to 7.8%? Now that it's gone up to
7.9% with a better jobs report than the previous month, you all can't piece
together the fact that we're still trending in the right direction and that
gaining around 350,000 jobs the past two months (including the revisions to
previous months) has lowered the unemployment rate from 8.2 to 7.9% and shows
that things are improving. Or would you rather have the situation in
October 2008 when unemployment was around 6% but we lost 500k jobs that month?
I'll take the improving economy thank you very much. You can keep your
irrational belief that somehow things are worse.
SS in the middle of nowhereMassachusetts was 47th in job creation
during Romney's term as Governor. His job was to veto every bill that came
out of the Democratic legislature and they would turn around and pass it
100%--Republicans AND DEMOCRATS!Romney is trailing President Obama
by 30 points in polling in Mass.. The state HATES Romney. And the Olympics?
Well thanks to hundreds of millions of dollars from the dreaded federal
government Romney was able to turn the Olympics around. He did NOT do it on his
own.Muslim Brotherhood? Oh Puh-lease! Stop listening to Fox News!
What is the last non-fiction book you read? Paul Krugman? Thomas Friedman?
Jeffry Sachs. Nobel Prize winning economists who ALL back Obama!Romney wants to cut ALL taxes by 20%. Now I had a Math Minor but simple
arithmetic will tell you that you CANNOT decrease a deficit without increasing
revenue! And he ALSO wants to increase military spending by two trillion
dollars on stuff the Pentagon doesn't even want! He has the same foreign
policy advisors as Bush!! More deficit. And he can't wait to start wars
in Iran and Syria!! Deeper ever in the red!
Wow Patriot! You claim that 4 years is enough to know whether they guys plan is
working or not? What about 8 years? Do you have a short memory? We already
know what tax cuts and deregulation will do and now you want that back?
A great followup story on the Ronmey Campaign before the election by DN Staff
would be about all the Salt Lakers getting on buses today for Vegas and Colorado
to canvas neighboorhoods to get voters to make their votes for Mitt. The story I hear from my SLC friends is they'll be put up at the Marriot
on the Vegas Strip, with free Rooms and meal vouchers. A great weekend junket
for about 8 hours of work on the Mitt campaign. LDS Church Services Sunday
morning and back on the bus to SL right afterward. With both parties
putting up ONE BILLION $$$ APIECE for their candidates this is only a small
example of how the money is being spent on both sides.
Bad week for Romney. Recent polls showing the undecideds swinging to BO. Hard
to believe he'll be strapping Shamus to the roof of the family station
wagon and heading to D.C.. With 40% of the ballots already cast and Obama with
a 7-10 point lead Mitt needs a strong finish to seal the deal. We all better
strap in for 4 more years of socialism and tyranny.
Do any Obama supporters realize what they are saying when they attack Bush for
raising the deficit?! Obama has spent more in four years than Bush did in SEVEN
years at war! You can't say it is Bush's fault that Obama has been
"unpatriotic," to put it in Obama's own terms!Then they
turn around and blame Romney for not serving in the military and turn a blind
eye to the fact that Obama has never served in the military either. All
Democrats can do is try and point out flaws in others because they know they
can't form an argument based on the president's terrible record of the
last four years.If Americans can't see what a terrible job
Obama has done as president the last four years, based strictly on his record,
then we deserve every bit of what happens the next four years. Let's hope
it doesn't happen.
@VST"3.02% for 20101.70% for 20111.30% through the 2nd
Quarter for 2012These are not the numbers representative of a
growing economy – the numbers are going in the wrong direction."Maybe they'd be doing better if we didn't have an
obstructionist congress get into office in 2011 and proceed to stall anything
that looks like it might be considered a "win" for Obama including jobs
bills.@ SS"All Democrats can do is try and point out flaws
in others because they know they can't form an argument based on the
president's terrible record of the last four years."Not my
fault you ignore all my assertions that we've gained private sector jobs 33
months and counting which is hardly indicative of a terrible record.
Nuschler1im crass?LOL!Question. since you feel up to
date and educated, how do you know if Mitt dodged the Draft?I'm
assumming you were close family friends???I going to guess probably
not.Cloin Powell supports BO cause hes Black.But, how do i know
this? Am I guessing? Yes I believe so...But, so are you.Answer this
question though.Who loves this country more, BO, or MR?
nuschler1you say thisRomney! We need to see your tax returns!!
What are you hiding? Who are you? Republicans Colin Powell, Mayor Bloomberg,
Governor Christie endorse OBAMA!then you challenge Aggielove, saying
Colin Powell is'nt a repub.Not sure what your angle is then.??I to believe Powell follows his color, not his party.Sorry about
your husband, cause that's very sad i bet.but, how does this apply to
Powell supoporting Obama?
This report is too late and insignificant to swing any votes. I'm just
afraid that Mitt is making things worse recently with his lies about Jeep and
his quotes from the primary about wanting to get rid of FEMA. Seems like all
the prayers are going unanswered and we'll be stuck with another 4 years of
socialism and tyrany.
One thing I know with absolute clarity is the last 4 years have been much better
with Obama in the White House than they would have been with McCain there. And
the next 4 years will be much better with Obama in the White House than they
will be with Romney there.
