You're telling my 40% tax cuts didn't boost the economy?

Are you saying the thousands of teachers, policeman, and fireman that weren't laid off didn't help the economy?

Have you ever seen a bridge or a road that fixed itself?

THIS is priceless.


Romney Party Yacht Flies Cayman Islands Flag - ABC News








Quote:
The floating party, hosted by a Florida developer on his yacht "Cracker Bay," was one of a dozen exclusive events meant to nurture those who have raised more than $1 million for Romney's bid.

"I think it's ironic they do this aboard a yacht that doesn't even pay its taxes," said a woman who lives aboard a much smaller boat moored at the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina.

Romney's Cayman-based investments have come under fire during the campaign.

Obama calls on Congress to quickly pass his 'American Jobs Act' - CNN
Jobs act...doesnt do enough. Has a couple good things, but he really hasnt pushed enough and sold it. Talk of stimulus and raising taxes on the rich is what I hear alot of. The raising tax on the wealthy (which I do support) does zero for jobs, like another round of stimulus.

Simpson and Bowles commision had alot good stuff in it, Obama and the congress ignored it.

Our nation tax code needs to be over hauled big time, this is a move with support on both sides and Bernanke and the Fed agree as well. Obama coulda really made an impact if he woulda at least pushed considerations from Simpson and Bowles debt commision and took an active approach at tax reform. Obama sat on his hands too much for me with his approach on the economy and our country's debt.

Great speech by Romney. Also Marco Rubio with a very good speech say one gaffe.

I dont want a cut and dry flat, but something similar. Just the same rate for everyone wouldnt work.

I do know we need to get the corporate tax rate down below 25%...its just insane where it is now. insane.

I think the game just changed. Mittens got exposed for going after cheap child labor. Such a shiny beacon that our country should look towards!





Whoever taped this was sitting on a gold mine.

This has been out for days. Not sure how big of a deal it is. I think it ought to be.

Where in that video did Romney say he was going after child labor? He was contrasting life in China with life in the US. How stupid can your spin get here?

Romney said we had it made here, compared to situations like the one he talked about in China. Show where Romney said he approved of it, instead of being surprised by it.

And you didn't even get minor details right. 18 to 23 is child labor?

This is why I ignore this thread normally. All the republican bashing going on now, it appears to be lies and exaggeration at best. Like the description of this video. Again, fear and division is all Democrats have left at this point, like the guy I wish was at the top of the Republican ticket said. But I guess you guys didn't watch that speech, just tried to find someone else to poke holes in it for you.

"The game just changed", is kinda funny. If this video isn't being described accurately, what does this mean about all the other mud thrown around in this thread? I'd say "the game" against the republicans has just been exposed as lies and hyperbole at best.

Lets take a look at those numbers after the DNC, or few weeks after that.

There is always a slight bump after each respective NC, that soon goes away.

Re: 2012 Presidential Election (free for all edition)

I wonder how many times you would hear the word "cult" from the right if the Democratic nominee was the Mormon and the gop candidate was a protestant/catholic. A friend and I spoke how this has barely been mentioned, think it shows the ethics of each sides' campaign approach. Funny to think about how the right tried to call Obama a Muslim just last election.

It's hard to make the case that we're not better off with these types of arguments:
