    I have to wonder what purpose this trans-atlantic trade partnership is meant to serve. Obviously it would benefit trade between the EU and the US, but ultimately these are the kind of trade partnerships between two super powers that left-wing sentiment criticizes world wide.

    Even if you use the lower figure to try and deny the enormity of Reagan's job creation, you STILL appear about 10 MILLION jobs short.....

    And Reagan's weren't the burger flipping variety Obama's given us........

    But you're right.

    Reagan WAS nice enough to cut capital gains, and create the capital formation that allowed all those companies to FORM that Clinton took credit for....

    If only they paid such tax rates. Effective tax rates kind of make your claim specious at best.

    I see you have your leftwing noise machine meme at full throttle this evening.

    Yes, I was curious about that statement by Obama. So I looked around; the only studies I can find touting pre-school's effectiveness are a bunch of studies comparing kindergarten performance. Who gives a crap about kindergarten performance?

    Its because of very cheap labor and no environmental regulations (cough cough.) That and they have discovered that having the factories in a communist nation is better for them.

    Only for special Democrat donor like GE. Maybe you should stop that, have them pay their FAIR share.

    Must I teach you everything? Oil is a a global commodity. And because Republicans won't let us use our own natural resources first, we put them on the global market where China and India's expansion is greater than our decrease in consumption.

    But I digress... you were blaming Obama?
