    You don't hear much about this guy's speaking abilities anymore, or being the smartest guy in the room. or his 'charisma'. He's looking just like a school teacher who's clearly out of his depth. Even Chris Mathew's leg has stopped tingling.

    His propaganda still has an effect.

    Yessirree bob!

    It was his very own "The fundamentals of our economy are strong" moment his campaign took so much joy in whacking at 4 years ago.

    Hardly. The private sector is doing fine. Record profits for one. Record cash reserves is another.. oh and lets not forget that all the job growth is in the private sector..

    The record job growth is in China.



    That record job growth could be in the US if the environmental whack jobs would let us eliminate all the stupid rules which restrict business.

    Quote is taken out of context, he was commenting on how the economy has grown over his Presidency, and these last few months aren't really representative of the economy over his term. But don't expect the republicans, or the cons here to actually listen to those facts. But it's too far away from November this really isn't going to have an effect.

    No it is a fact. Could they do better? of course... but compared to when they were shedding 700k jobs a month under the last months of Bush, then private sector is doing fine. Obama is being factual, although I do admit it is a stupid comment considering the political climate.

    But Romneys response is even more stupid.... we dont need firemen, teachers and policemen? LOL come on.. talk about being out of touch.

    Sure if you are willing to live on next to nothing, and work under slave like conditions and piss on the environment..

    And in fact jobs were very quickly lost in China thanks to the crisis started in the US.. and the Chinese government had to pump billions of cheap loans into the economy to keep that "job growth" up since the natives were getting pissed about rich factory owners burning down the factory and leaving them without months of pay and no jobs,... just because the orders from the west dried up because of the US created economic crisis.

    That record job growth could be in the US if the environmental whack jobs would let us eliminate all the stupid rules which restrict business.
    Have you seen the environmental damage done in China? Are you prepared to have deformed babies, still births en-mass, high cancer rates and worse just for a few low paying jobs that cant even feed a family?

    Why is it that conservatives want to race to the bottom?
