Romney has no flag in the background. WHY DOES HE HATE AMERICA?!

So, rather than do something about the economy and unemployment, MessiahO spent 18 months and all of his political capital to ram through an unsustainable welfare program. That's some change you can believe in.

Romney/Ryan 2012. Put America back to work.

Here in PA the GOP governor and GOP legislature cut funding for schools and for medical care for the poor. Now, the new jobs numbers are out and, somehow, unemployment in the education and health care sectors is way up.

Of course, this just means more business tax cuts are needed to build a human shield of Job Creators over the entire state to keep Obama's Voodoo Job Destruction Rays (sometimes the Gas Price Increasing Rays) from penetrating!

This is true.

Has anyone done any comparisons of how they were in the polls by this point vs. their political opponent?

Silly rtards are pretty much reduced to trying to pin everything they can on Obama because that's all they have left.

This is them wanting America to fail and cheering on every perceived negative because Team GOP that's why.

Pathetic.

But hey, at least you didn't raise taxes on all of those oil drillers or tightened the ridiculously loose regulations against them.

Gotta think of those Blessed "Job Creators".

I wonder what percentage of jobs lost over the last few years has been from government positions in red states?
 
2012-08-18 06:56:07 PM
By any metric, a rising jobless rate in that many states is pitiful.

2012-08-18 06:57:31 PM
So, Obama is a failure because his administration is creating jobs at a fraction of the rate the previous administration lost jobs...

So vote republican
 
2012-08-18 06:58:41 PM
Too lazy to RTFA. But does it say how many of those numbers were due to government job cutbacks?

We say Obama's policies didn't work. That means we must return to the policies that got us in this mess in the first place.

SO VOTE REPUBLICAN!

Nonfarm payroll employment grew in 31 states in July and shrank in 19, the Labor Department said. California added the most jobs, at 25,200, followed by Michigan at 21,800, and Virginia at 21,300. New Jersey lost the most jobs at 12,000, followed by Missouri at 7,700, and Illinois at 7,100.

California is leading the country in job growth? But they have a Democrat for Governor, how is that possible?
 
2012-08-18 07:01:48 PM
The level of panic on the right has escalated dramatically since Ryan was announced as the VP nom. A not-unreasonable response, but you can only imagine what the greenlights are going to look like even a month or two from now.

Get ready for The Race Card being used by Obama and his people, like they never left home without it.

Because, with a crappy economy, low morale, and the youth vote not materializing....its going to be 3 months of Black Racism/White Guilt Liberals on Steroids...."you don't vote for Obama...you are Racist"

Hopefully Joe Biden will continue to say something stupid

I doubt he'll be the artful dodge like Barack and never actually answer a question without blaming ATM's or Japan or whatever. As far as Biden goes, well all Ryan has to do is simply talk about this administration's record...which even they won't do as of yet. Either way, I doubt anyone really expects much from Joe except crossing their fingers he really doesn't go full batshiat on stage.

387B in debt (including all the unfunded liabilities) goes a long way to propping up the workforce.

No. He'll just blame Obama without offering any concrete plan of how he can do a better job.

Same here. You can only say "Obama=bad" for so long before people ask how you can do a better job.

Gee, things would be much better if California hadn't passed laws preventing them from increasing tax revenue. What kind of idiot would pass that kind of legislation?

Not to mention the population size. Those town/city bankruptcies are going to have a lasting effect.

Are we back to the economy thing again? Sorry, I must be confused. All I have heard since Ryan was announced has been about Medicare . . . it is like the Romney camp is backing away from the economy issue.

End_Of_Line: Are we back to the economy thing again? Sorry, I must be confused. All I have heard since Ryan was announced has been about Medicare . . . it is like the Romney camp is backing away from the economy issue.


Ryan was in Florida's largest retirement community (which is also 2:1 Republican) trying to get people to embrace his plan. Which was easy because they're all 55+ and they vote Republican.

If that was his attempt to try to convince old people that his plan for Medicare will work out for people like me in their 20's, that was some weak sauce then.

Yeah, but that means the employment rate rise in 13 states.

I dunno. I'm just a simple guy. If I'm not making ends meet, I need to get some additional income. Unfortunately, Republicans have prevented California from pulling any overtime or getting a part-time job.

It's a great test case for the federal budget. When you need increased revenue but do nothing to fix the loopholes the wealth, corporations, and land owners are using to skimp out on taxes, your deficit will keep rising regardless of how many cuts you make

Oh and another thing about this jobless rate article... Wisconsin isn't looking so hot after all. Their jobless rate rose to 7.3%

Inaction by the Republicans to do anything to help the economic recover is becoming so bad not even their rhetoric can hide it anymore.

So the Reagen method of governing is a bad thing? I thought deficits do not matter? Oh wait they only matter when they can be blamed on the democrats.

I'm pretty sure at least half of them elected Republican governors the last time around. And they've got more to do with their state's economy than Obama does.
