Yes Mr. Romney, fixing the Bush job loss hemorrhage of over 1 million American jobs lost per month, lowering unemployment and doubling the stock market is worse than the financial collapse we had after 8 years of Republican mismanagement.

Sure, a collapsed economy with huge corporations going bankrupt nearly daily, tent cities loaded with homeless children, millions of Americans losing their life savings and retirement funds was MUCH more desirable than what we have now.

Good GOD Romney is a lying f*cktard.

the economy is demonstrably better than when obama took office by every single measure. how the fark does this asshole get away with lying like that? why doesn't the press tell the truth?

10 more days of putting up with Mitt Romney's constant lying. Just ten more.

The only truth is that Romney actually said that.

No, knowing it's true that Romney is a bullshiatter is something that I've grown accustomed to.

Where do you think Romney's going to go? He's an entitled prick that's coasting through a boring retirement. And his base is filled with insane people. We're going to hear about how Obama stole the election for two more years.

Yes, but we have the advantage of the fact that Romney doesn't hold any kind of office, so nobody's going to listen to him except the right-wing media.

I'm still going with: GOP immediately declares an Obama win illegitimate due to whatever and sets up a government-in-exile.

The house will start impeachment proceedings the day after the inauguration.

This one's going to thrash around a lot as it circles the drain. Best to stand back out of harm's way.

Obama now has an 88-95% chance of winning based on the PEC model. 74% odds based on 538's model, which is better than Obama's chances were before the DNC. Both models predict O's EV take to be in the 290's. As Sam Wang at PEC puts it, "the cake is baked."
 
2012-10-27 02:11:49 PM
He's trying to appeal to mouthbreathers who will insist that "Obama's already raised taxes higher than they've been in American history" so it's a fairly target-rich environment.

Yeah, but he "looked thin and seemed effeminate" on Bill Maher's show last night, so he's a total liar and his math sucks. So say the usual suspects in RW online media, anyway.

Well, if you are still obscenely wealthy, that scenario is more desirable. You can get servants so much cheaper.

As he pointed out in two debates:

The economy is worse this year than last year.
And it was worse last year than the year before.

We are moving in the wrong direction (e.g. NOT FORWARD)
 
2012-10-27 03:38:43 PM
I try to take politicians' words in stride, but I am really starting to hate Romney. How can you just openly and blatantly lie every minute of every day and get away with it? Are we really that far gone as a population that we can't even agree on empirical facts?

Yes that why people call him a bullshiat artist.

The GDP was shrinking when the GOP was last in charge. I guess you long for the good old days.

Total BS on both sides. no matter who was in office the economy would have gotten better much like it will in the next 4 years regardless of who is picked. those who make the money won't let it be in the dumps for too long
 
2012-10-27 04:02:30 PM
Great news everyone! On the statistics that the gov't can affect, we're doing halfway decent. On the raw numbers... not so much. But on some numbers somewhere, I assure you the economy looks good.

But believe that were it not for the brave and bold Obama, the economy would be toast and the apocalypse would have happened. He knew that the secret was to continue most of Bush's economic policies, give billions to companies that would go bankrupt in a few years, follow it all up with a nice speech and good things would happen.

I really don't think that anyone listens to Palin, apart from maybe a small cadre of fanbois and fangrrlz. She can, for now, still shout through her bullhorn, but she's a punchline. The GOP would very much prefer to forget that she ever existed.

That's Romney's fate too, if he doesn't win this election.

Good. Then let's not vote for either of them based on economic issues.

Instead, let's allow this election to be decided on social, education, military, energy, trade, diplomacy, welfare, immigration, and domestic infrastructure issues. You know... all those pesky things a President has to do. Oh wait... Obama would win that election with 90% of the vote.

tenpoundsofcheese: The economy is worse this year than last year.
And it was worse last year than the year before.


The article states otherwise: "Growth so far this year is slightly less than in 2011, which was weaker than 2010."

The economy is still growing, just not as much as it was. It's still a step in the right direction, albeit a small one.

Anything else you care to pull out of your ass?

Romney opens mouth; bullshiat falls out. More at 11.
 
2012-10-27 04:09:33 PM
You can argue that things could be better or that things aren't improving quickly enough, but those are subjective judgments.

To flatly state that the economy has gotten worse in any objective sense is absolute bullshiat.
 
2012-10-27 04:11:33 PM
Romney's mistake was not making the lies big enough. If you're going for the Big Lie strategy, don't piffle.

"Obama seeks to bring about the End of Days. He wants to engineer the return of the Old Ones."

"Biden caught on tape telling ACORN volunteers to wait and regroup in South America, like the ODESSA network."

"Michelle Obama grows marijuana in the White House Rose Garden."

Actually, that last one isn't big enough. Make it "Michelle seen wearing come-hump-me pumps to Kenyan church meeting."

The stock market, despite the derp from simple minded folks who think they're economic geniuses because they read a blog, is not a direct bellweather to the US economy. It will shift, shrink, and grow based upon specific market influences.

The economy will always recover. It's just a matter of how long and when. Obama's policies just aren't designed to grow economies. Steve Jobs knew it. CEO's who aren't trying to grift money from the gov't know it. Yet Obama's supporters don't.

Talk about optimistically ignorant.
 
2012-10-27 04:13:56 PM
Really, things are worse now? We're doomed? We're not losing a half million jobs every month. The dow has nearly doubled. Consumer debt is lower. Foreclosures are down. Repossessions (auto) are down. Personal Bankruptcies are down. I'd rather not turnaround, but thanks for your concern.
