As for the money...Sex and the City parties, Hollywood productions, Soros, and an organization that makes the bulk of its money off of forced donations from workers ...and you're worried about one guy.

How fickle are liberals nowadays.

OK you say "what revisionist past" and change the subject.

Health Care reform was needed, could have been done a lot better if the Republicans had acted like grown ups, and is intended to reduce government spending as shown repeatedly by the CBO. It will be his legacy, but that's not why it was done you dolt. It was done because no other President was able to do it and it needed to get done.

He loves making the claim BECAUSE ITS TRUE and all the "wah Obama blames Bush wah" crap is just you being you. There's no doubt that we are no longer sliding into oblivion - this is why whiners like you vote for the guys that say "deficits don't matter" when there are wars to fight and rich people to coddle, yet deficits are the most evil thing in the world when generated to save the fuging country from another Great Depression.

This recovery has ALWAYS been characterized by every economist with half a brain as being slow, painful, jobless, etc - NOTHING to do with Obama, or tax cuts, or whatever - it's just what it is and the government can only shepherd it UNLESS it decides to spend more money on it which clearly you feel is not going to help - despite all evidence to the contrary - so yes it will continue to be slow and sputtering. Romney sure is not going to be able to do anything different about it.

The problem here is that all Romney can do is talk about doing all the things we were doing before that helped create this mess because the Republican platform is inflexible and relies on a completely failed stategy as dogma in order to keep it's base happy. The government has been tied to the economy closely since the Fed was created and although it's had it's issues, it also created the greatest economic powerhouse on the planet. The idea that somehow now you can divest the union in order to make things go better has been shown to be a failure but this does not sit well with some folks who can't seem to differentiate 'government oversight" with "socialist Obama taking over everything" or whatever other silly excuse is in vogue this week.

The next time Obama mentions the failed policies of the past, Romney should just say sure...let's look at that on the state level. Make it a national mandate on liberal policies and let's really see how people vote.

Or you could just ask Governor Kasich, who pretty much said Obama should get all the credit for job growth in his state (since it mostly has been in the auto industry).

Unions are actual people. They don't like having "have a job/pay the dues" gun held to their head. Wisconsin is proof of that. People like choice.

Wait till they are all replaced by people willing to do the same work for less or get outsourced to a private contractor. This is inevitable.

If you give people a choice in paying for anything, they're usually going to opt not to pay. If people were given a choice to pay taxes, we'd be Greece.

If you asked most of those people that have now stopped paying union dues whether they supported the existence of their union, their responses would have been yes.

There are alot of policies and procedures in america that could use some repair. but the way in which we do that is where you must be careful. and if that means signing bills into regulation so that we can find out what's in them is your idea of progress...., well you can kiss my revisionist past ass.

If you look at a list of states and how they are performing economically, it appears that republican or democrat don't really matter. Red state stalwarts such as Wyoming and North Dakota are doing very well, as are blue states like Maryland and Oregon. Many factors come into play, politics is only one and its not necessarily the biggest one.

Maybe they don't know any better? We'll have to see how they feel a year or two from now.
