Honestly, I think both sides need to stop with the "X is going to do worse!". No one can predict a global economy anymore - however one can take quicker actions.

The whole hope and change thingy was the most laughable of them all - considering nothing has changed. I guess there is nothing better than taking advantage of people with false hopes. But the concept of determining whom would make a better president with better results ahead of time is rather stupid. At this point I'm just rolling my eyes with every story of the media (especially this one) - and just hoping the elections end quicker. I want to be in a fucking coma until the day the elections are up.

It's changed for the worse. And all the oboma nut suckers still think A) he's doing a good job B) he's more than an eloquent shoveling lying piece of shit politician, and/or C) he needs another 4 years to actually get good shit done.

But does he realize that you cannot run a country like a company though? You cannot shut down and move operations where it's cheaper. You cannot get rid of people like downsizing workers. You have to take care of 311,591,917 persons not just a few shareholders. You have to work with Congress and other people, you're not a CEO that can make all the decisions. The bottom line is not a number, it's the well being of a nation.

The only thing oboma had going for him was the ability to read off of a teleprompter

And no, you can't move operations but you can downsize the federal government. Cut entire departments, eliminate the redundancy and bureaucracy, get rid of baseline budgeting, and stop running a fucking trillion goddamn dollar deficit every fucking year

No you can't, not if you're the President acting alone. There needs to be a LEADER in the white house, not a boss. The President cannot tell Congress to do any of these things, he needs to convince them, he needs to be a politician. Mitt Romney barely convinced his own party that he can be a leader, how do you think he's going to work with the Democrats?

We have cut 600k public sector jobs since obama took office.

If we did cut the deficit, which you didn't give a shit about until obama took office, it would plunge the country immediately back into a recession by removing about 7% of GDP.

If you think that is going to create jobs and fix the economy... You might be a republican.

Congress passes the budget. All the President can do is send them one to consider, but they're under no obligation to use it, especially when the opposite party controls the House.

Taxing the wealthy places an unfair and unsustainable burden upon them, but taxing people who live paycheck to paycheck is common sense.

And when those ten kids grow up and become tax payers, they will pay for their public school education many times over. That's how public education works.

Thanks for releasing your tax info on a fucking Friday Mitt, way to minimize media coverage.
