It's no joke or shock that the media is in the tank for Obama and the media will do absolutely everything in their power to psych the public out...
This media nonsense is nothing more than a persuasion technique... Sorry if this comes as a shock but journalists aren't exactly the most honest individuals, actually I would put them on par with lawyers and most politicians.
Generally if you want the truth always read the end of an article where the journalist "buries" facts that contradict or at least cancels out the original points being made in the article.
This is a great article that will give insight and credence to my assertions..

Of course there is a way to prove it, and that is look at the percentage of people with corporate backgrounds that were in an executive position like governor and compare performance to those that had only legislative or law experience. It wouldn't prove one candidate is better than another but it could make a strong case for corporate experience. If I had more time I would look up the numbers.
I believe its the American People are far more turned off by the far right and their agenda than they are of obama....the far right has lost this election not Mitt Romney or anything else...Obama will NOT win even if he remains president....this entire election is a referendum on the Far Right and their agenda to enhance the rich at the expense of everyone else...and drive the final nail into the coffin of the middleclass
I agree with your analysis.
First, tax considerations for the top bracket should not be a primary focus. For all I know cutting top bracket taxes might actually do something but rerally, I doubt it and it's terribly self-serving and has a bad history.
I still want to see a well thought out approach that is viable in the current atmosphere. So far, I've seen better proposals on DP than I have from Team Romney (and Team Obama). No BOMFOG, let's see if anybody has an implementable idea.
Romney may have no choice but to get more specific now that he is down in the polls. My sense is he will do it in the debates, if he does it at all. This would somewhat curb the media's ability to spin whatever he says.
*sigh*On the one hand you say we need to raise taxes to pay down the deficit and debt. On the other hand, you say the debt is a good thing because the economy will do better with it.
I said that in the future we need to raise taxes and cut spending to pay down the debt. What I also said, and what you completely failed to understand is incurring debt financed spending during the period of aggregate demand drops keeps aggregate demand from declining further. As aggregate demand from non-government sources rebounds, the government should curtail debt financed spending.
Serious. Read for comprehension rather than just making up whatever you think people write.
This assumes that tax revenue does not stay proportionally tied as aggregate demand declines. That is a big assumption.I have a better idea: stop spending...the deficit magically reduces...the growth in debt reduces.
