    What about the Obama campaign promise to address companies that send jobs overseas? For someone so quick to call others out, you're not quite as quick to respond.

    Well, I don't know about you, but I am starting to question all these numbers from different sources. They seem way too easily manipulated to fit arguments. You know what British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli in the 1800s said right? "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."

    I don't think any of us have been told the real truth for quite a while now.

    Excuses, excuses, excuses, Clinton success due to the dot.com bubble and so on. Fact is Obama knew what he was getting or should have and has made things worse. Still waiting for a side by side comparison between Bush and Obama results but doubt I will ever see them from you or any other Obama supporter. You prefer to focus on the last half of 2008 and ignore the first 2 1/2 years of Obama but that doesn't stop you from placing blame. Try doing that in the real job market and see how far it gets you. Leaders accept responsibility and that is something liberals don't understand.

    Oh, lets not forget that the BLS also revised the job creation numbers for June and July down by 58,000 jobs...

    So in reality, we didn't create 0 jobs, we actually lost 58,000 jobs

    How is cutting taxes giving anything to anyone? Do you realize how foolish that sounds. Allowing people to keep more of what they earn isn't giving them anything

    Keep buying the rhetoric and ignoring reality. That will carry you far in real life. There was no surplus no matter how many times you claim there was one.
