"I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isn't something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we can do something. With your help we will do something," Romney said in a prime-time speech to a nation grappling with an 8.3 percent unemployment rate and a painfully slow economic recovery.

You know, this line irritates me the most. We're heard three plus years of the Republicans openly bragging how they want Obama to fail at everything.

MY PROMISE IS TO HELP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

"you" = people earning most of their money through capital gains
"your family" = the family of people earning most of their money through capital gains

So "the future" is the economic policies of George Bush and Ronald Reagan which did nothing but help cause the recession and enrich the wealthiest Americans at the expense of the middle and working classes?

Yeah... Pass.

I had a freind who was listening to the Eastwood speech and he was confused as to why the republicans applauded at the mention of "23 million unemployed."

I told him "It's literally been their stated goal for the past two years."

Yeah... Pass.



This is honestly the #1 reason why I couldn't even consider voting for Mitt Romney, he's not bringing anything to the table. "The Recovery isn't going fast enough, so we need to go back to the economic policies that (at best) failed to prevent the collapse in the first place."

From an economic perspective he's literally proposing that we do the same thing over again and expect different results. I can't buy that, at all, it doesn't pass the most basic of logical tests.

Hopefully when Chris Christie is nominated in 2016 he'll bring something new to the table. I'm totally open to new ideas WRT the economy. What I'm not open to is George W Bush's economic policies. We tried that for 8 years, it didn't work. It's time to try something new. The Obama policies seem to be working, albeit relatively slowly (which isn't particularly alarming considering the depth of the problem he started with).

This was Romney's biggest failing, IMHO - the complete inability to bring anything new to the table economically.

I'll say one thing:
I lost my job in New Jersey at the end of 2010 in part due to Chris Christie screwing over the in state firm I worked at. A firm owned by Republicans who were heavy supporters of him, every Republican presidential candidate, etc. We lost a major contract because Christie used his influence so an out of state contractor could get around some of New Jersey more moronic licensing laws; laws that my company at the time was using to their advantage to lock in contracts like this.

While it sucks that the company I worked ten years for suffered because of it, I kinda do agree with his actions. Just wish he'd do more to reform the state.. I think he's too interested in using the governorship as a stepping stone for higher office. Even the die hard Republicans considered him a carpet bagger when he was running for office.

I saw the clip of the 'joke' about rising seas ... the smug look on Romney's face was infuriating enough, but WTF is with all this anti-climate bashing (which also appears prominently in the platform)?

I'm sure midwestern farmers suffering from drought wish someone would help their families.

/irony of the farm bill debate is that GOP won't help drought relief unless huge cuts are made to Food Stamps
//Food Stamps never helped anyone's family, especially when droughts drive up food prices

After Obama wins this year, I'm guessing Christie gets the nod for 2016. I'm hoping he brings some new economic ideas to the table from the right side.

Wouldn't that be nice? He won't though because the Republican voters don't demand it and the Republican donors want their tax cuts. No seriously, that's exactly why there will never be a Republican presidential candidate who proposes anything different.

The same Republican party whose primaries have - 4 of the last 5 times - picked the moderate of the bunch? I think there is a conscious effort on the part of the GOP money-men to weaken the moderation of the nominee, to steer them toward "conservatism" (preferential policy treatment for the well-connected). Sure, they nominate crazy, but they somehow always choose the least crazy and then make them even crazier.

What? If we leave the context of POTUS, what about Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle? Or Michelle Bachmann? What about the governor of Arizona. And I just noticed why is it so many of the wackiest Republicans are female?

But I agree with you on the GOP money-men driving conservatism in the candidates. Did you notice the sheer amount of derp in the GOP primary, because the derp candidates were backed by GOP money-men? Shiat Rick Santorum was pretty much backed by a single dude.

Dr Dreidel: Sure, they nominate crazy, but they somehow always choose the least crazy and then make them even crazier.


Sure, like I was saying. The candidates go full derp because the voters don't demand it but the money-men do. So you get an old sexist white dude who thinks women wouldn't need birth control if they weren't such whores, even though pretty much all women will use birth control in their lives. That dude will give a few million dollars if you propose anti-whore policies and yet you still have a GOP convention full of women.

This, plus they have to make reactionary VP picks to assure the support of most Republicans. Moderates can derp enough to get the nomination (McCain and Romney), but to be taken seriously, they have to choose derpier VP candidates.

As was Herman Cain, as was Newt Gingrich. I'm talking about the general. The primaries are derp-fests, and 4 of the last 5 have left standing the least derpy candidate. Which is like being the dumbest Jew, or the tallest midget, but the point stands.

I'm claiming that the GOP voters do kinda want a moderate voice - and I'm not just relying on politically-neutral polls showing even Republican support for raising tax rates on the highest brackets and most of PPACA. They keep choosing the most moderate candidate from the primaries, who pivots hard right, losing that moderate consensus they got in the primaries just in time for the general.

The party needs an enema. One that rinses out the bigotry, religion-pandering, and maintains strictly on economic issues and personal freedom that doesn't infringe upon personal freedom if they wish to be viable at all in the future. The fringe extremist position while providing a quick boost will only prove self destructive in time with no sustainable future.

I think you and I are in complete agreement. I'm just saying as much as the GOP voters might want a moderate voice, come election day, they'll vote (R) no matter who runs and the GOP knows it. That's why you see Mitt Romney, who I could have made the argument is the most moderate Republican possible (look what he did as governor) suddenly shift into this hard right candidate. Because the donors want it and the voters will vote for him anyways.

Sadly, you're mostly right. I did hear Ryan say he would cap spending at 20% of GDP. I don't really believe him, but I want to.

Put it this way - I've seen what Obama got done, hell he even had two years where they controlled the House and Senate. It's pretty much unpossible that the Repubs could fark our economy over more than the big O did. I'm ready to try something new.

We went from losing almost a million jobs per month to biatching about only gaining tens of thousands of jobs.
