Britney Spear's Speculum: What is Romney's definition of a job?

I can create 12 million new jobs using this trick:
Say a shift at walmart is 8 hours. 12 million people work at wal mart. If I was the owner, I would cut back everyone elses' hours by half and hire on 12 million more people to take on the rest of the hours. Bam, 12 millions "jobs"


And since they'd all have to work 2 jobs to make ends meet, it would actually be 36 million jobs!

Bucky Katt: Romney is a congenital liar.


I think what you meant to write is that "Romney has a congenial leer."

wrenchboy: BuckTurgidson: "Trickle-down government" *DRINK*
"Trickle-down government" *DRINK*


Romney said it.
Romney said it.


Romney said trickle down economics do not work? Tax breaks for job creators? Where are my flip flops?


Aahhh, yes. Everything he spoke of economically for the country was trickle down economics. And at the end of the debate, he said he didn't support trickle down economics. F-ing liar.

And the fact that he lied during the first question, directed at him, regarding college grads, getting jobs and out of debt, he said that he would increase Pell Grant availability. What a piece of work.

Romney/the GOP is pro-bigotry and anti-women, pro war and anti-education, pro-corporation and anti-middle class. All Romney has going for his is this "I know how to make jobs and get the economy going" message. The problem is that all he actually knows how to do is ride companies into the ground for profit and spout "tax cuts" over and over again.

So, sometimes, he's just gotta lie. It's all part of the game.

And by sometimes, I mean all the time.

It's funny how in the debate the question was about jobs, with Mitt answering first about how he's going to create jobs.
Then at the end of Obama's reply to the question (which sounded better than Romney) Romney jumps up and says "Presidents don't create jobs!".

What an ass.

Jobs are created by consumer demand. Not government or plutocrat command.

"This is a case of bait-and-switch. Romney, in his convention speech, spoke of his plan to create "12 million new jobs," which the campaign's white paper describes as a four-year goal.

But the candidate's personal accounting for this figure in this campaign ad is based on different figures and long-range timelines stretching as long as a decade - which in two cases are based on studies that did not even evaluate Romney's economic plan. The numbers may still add up to 12 million, but they aren't the same thing - not by a long shot. "
