So do you think Romney can turn this all around like a wave of a magic wand. BS. The Europe thing is going to sink us all into another 2008 year. There is not a thing neither Republican or Democrat can do about it. After all in a globalised world when you compete against 50c an hr countries then the writing is on the wall. If you think a change of leader will make it any better especially when he represents the high earners who don't want to pay tax then it would only be a 1000 times worse. Learn from the non tax paying countries and learn from those who pay tax. If you follow Romney then you going down the Greek dirt road.
So far, despite all the work of Obama to turn us into Europe, we are still in better shape than them. Romney can turn this around, heck I could turn it around, simply by taking all tax hikes off the table, cutting expenses 10% ACROSS THE BOARD! and striking some of the onerous regulations put in place by this administration. Boom, jobs and more jobs would appear. It's really just logical, not exactly Rocket Science worthy thinking. Get government out of the way and companies will expand and hire. Right now all Europe has to work with is their incredibly high entitlement costs, high taxes and low performance. It will take more than a little cost cutting to get them back on track. They have had several generations (Since WWII) to grow their entitlement, nannystate mentality. It will take a few generations to undo the harm that that type of thinking has produced.

<quoted text>Love it! Anything is/was better than the incompetent Bush. What? You think we all want another Bush in office? Bush and the GOP who are the major cause of our problems because of their greed and support of the 1% and corporations? I don't think so, sheeple! The rest of us are not as stupid as you people are.
Unemployment under Bush, averaged 5% or less
Unemployment under Obama, averaged 9% or more

Jobs created under Obama, for the past 20 months LESS THAN NEEDED TO EVEN KEEP PACE with the current unemployment rate.

Jobs REPORTED as having been created under Obama DOWNGRADED EVERY MONTH with the past two cut almost in half. The Liar in Chief can't even manage to get that right.

Moonbat - that 1% IS PAYING THE MAJORITY OF TAXES used to support the takers (you and your ilk) so maybe instead of whining about them you could find it in your gimme, gimme, soul to spare the PAYERS a little thanks for paying into your lifestyle of choice!

Odumbo stated it himself in 08

"If I can't fix the economy in my FIRST year in office I don't deserve a second term"

Well I guess he is out because the economy is worse then ever. The US downgraded for the first time in history by S&P. Unemployment higher now under Odumbo then when Bush was in.
Gas prices highest now then when Bush was in
No balance budget in 3 1/2 years
National Debt raised under Odunbo 5 Trillion highest ever in history.
Odumbo bankrupt his comunity ACTION PROGRAM AND NOW HE IS BANKRUPTING THE USA

Send this village idiot back home and take America back

Here is a quote from Obama I found on CNN's site:

"That's going to take time. That's going to take more than a year," Obama tells "60 Minutes" on CBS. "It's going to take more than two years. It's going to take more than one term. It probably takes more than one president."

Yes, it will take more than one term to fix the ruins the Shrub left us in before running back to Texas to hide.

The jobs report is bad enough, averaging fewer than 1500 new jobs in each state. This, of course, is based upon the assumption that the US is comprised of 50 rather than the 57 that Obama has counted. The story within the story, however is that the number of jobs created in recent months has been downgraded from the original somewhat optimistic assessments. The strategy of "spending our way out of recession" has not only not worked but has made THE US the world's biggest debtor nation. Obama's approach hasn't worked. We need a change of leadership and hope that the next president will rescue us from inevitable economic disaster we face.

Are the GOPTEA birthers still whining that President Obama added jobs for another straight month? That brings it to 20+ months of job additions.

Keep up the good work President Obama! In 2012 we will give you the Congress that you will need to keep the economy moving! Instead of this current crop of obstructionist GOPTEA birthers who gave us our first credit downgrade ever.

When I voted for President Obama I knew it would take more than one term for us to get to a level before the Bush GOP recession. So far so good. We just need to give him the Congress he needs for his next term.

4 more years please!

we both know it wasn't, dear.

bush had his final 2 years with nancy pelosi and a dumocrap (i thought i'd use language you might understand) congress...oh, and wouldn't you know it, those 2 years coinside with the economy collapsing...while bwawwwny fwank was singing "all is well at fannie and freddie", and bill clinton quietly went on a world tour...

obumba, on the other hand, came in promising HE had the cure, HE could fix the problems, HE knew EXACTLY what to do...
he had all of congress and 2 years to just make a dent...

your hero couldn't do it...he made things even worse, and, spent more money than all the previous presidents combined in the process... and, instead of manning up, he pointed his boney finger, blamed bush and whined...much like you do.

now THERE'S a leader! THERE'S a man with integrity and backbone!
THERE'S your messiah, dear...
what he lacks in ability, he makes up for with ego.

''This is horrible': US adds just 69,000 jobs in May'

WTF? Only in the GOPTEA world does job additions mean a bad thing. I guess they want to go back into a recession where we were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs a month.

Well....actually they do...just to win an election. How "patriotic" of them hoping for America to fail...

I looked up Rich Money's plan.

It was a regurgitation of the Bush plan: spend and cut tax revenue.

We've already been down that route. The 1% fatcats hoarded the savings instead of reinvesting it here at home. They gave each other obscene bonuses for failure instead of growing companies, and shipped those bonuses into offshore accounts. The savings failed to trickle down to the working class people.

Bush 2.0 again? NO THANKS!

Obama and the democrats have been naturalized by congressional procedures, since 2007 Filibusters in the Senate and 2010 the GOP in the House.
The GOP rang the bell and stated their intentions. Their blueprint was on display for all to see.

The problem is that most of America doesn't understand how congress operates..... Everyone is getting an exception understanding right before their very eyes.
Income are stagnant and have been for 12 years, as Corporate productivity and earning are skyrocketing.
Hmmm, hypocricy is a dem standard. Let's see how it works. Bush attempted three times to get fannie/freddie under control in 2001, 2003 and 2005! All atttempts to regulate were blocked in the senate by Frank and Dodd. You see the results.
