    And there 'ya go, folks. He finally admits it. Romney doesn't work for a living.

    EDIT: He should be drug tested. LOL.

    Obama has had three years to do that and has failed. He had his chance and the numbers are worse. He will add anothe 1.1 trillion to the debt this year without a war in Iraq. he has real unemployment well over 10% and underemployment at 15.2%. He has a declining labor force and higher misery index

    He worked hard to get where he is today and that work is paying off in the return on his investments.

    Er so private sector employment being up over government sector is a bad thing?

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Why no answer, Con?

    Why is that if Conservatism is superior to Liberalism, Conservatives can't nominate a Conservative candidate for President? This time it's looking like Romney, the most Liberal among the GOP candidates, is going to win. Last time it was McCain, again, the most Liberal among the GOP running.

    Why is Conservatism so unappealing to the voting population that the right won't put up a solid Conservative to run for President?

    The left put up their most Liberal candidate and not only did he win his party's nomination, he won the White House.

    the private sector employment should be up over the public sector since this is a private sector economy however the fact is private sector employment is down vs when obama took office and the labor force is declining. That is reality

    That, Shake Your Booty, is one of the best posts I've read on Debate Politics. Excellent observation. Makes this conservative wonder.

    Along with the reality that the only reason the private sector is down since Obama became president is because of Bush's Great Recession, which lost some 4 million private sector jobs during the beginning of Obama's presidency. Since 2010, more than 3 million private sector jobs have been added.

    What do you think the answer is? Myself, I can't explain it. Especially when I factor in that Conservatives outnumber Liberals by a factor of 2 to 1.
