    No, the rich can afford to fight back, so he’s going after the defenseless middle class. Nobody’s got their back.

    Wonder if Maher is rethinking his $1,000,000 contribution?

    Is the man looking for the middle class in the cartoon above a fact finder sent by the Obama campaign to figure out how much damage they’ve perpetuated on the American people?

    Obama was not looking at his shoes, he was taking notes, as both were doing. Decision for Romney, if this was a university debate, but it is not. Romney’s effective delivery masked some critical deficiencies in his alleged tax policy.

    Mitt won Obama lost can anybody explain to me how is that possible?

    I mean Obama is so good and smart and we Republicans are so helpless.

    The absurdity of the ’toon is of course, that “Reaganomics”, taken to extreme under “W”, is exactly what buried the “middle class”, while elevating the 1% to heights not seen since the the demise of feudalism. Oh, wait, “Reaganomics” IS feudalism.

    If Reaganomics is fedualism, then Obamanomics is pure Marxist Soviet Socialism combined with extreme Mao Tse Tung Red China despotism, complete with Obama grinding his own people into the ground, killing millions, starting with infanticide, and ending with anyone who dares oppose him. No wonder the middle class is buried.

    Bush used Reaganomics. Bush increased government spending and the size of government. Regan at least tried to cut it back.

    " …..Either Obama is in over his head or he chose not to mention deficiencies because he can’t defend that point of view….."
    How do you give an effective critique on complex tax issues in two minutes with a moderator breathing down your neck?

    Reaganomics is not the cause of the middle class being “buried” the last 4 years…..the recession began in 2007 and was officially over and done with by June 2009….
    …the Obama administration is responsible for screwing up a normal recovery from a financial crisis recession…
    from an IBD.com article today..
    .“..how dismal Obama’s recovery has been, consider this: since WW2 there have been 10 recoveries before Obama’s. Had Obama merely performed as well as the average of all those 10 recoveries, the nation’s GDP would be a staggering $1.2 Trillion bigger than it is today, and 7.9 million more people would have jobs.” (“Obama’s Re-Election Case Rests on 5 Phony Claims”…by John Merline 10/3/12 at www.news.investors.com…

    “…..Romney’s best line was “You gave 9 billion dollars to Green Energy, most of it wasted. You could’ve hired 2million more teachers!” …..”
    $9 billion divided by 2 million teachers is $4,500 cost per teacher. That’s his best line!!! What, is he now outsourcing teaching to China?

    Romney didn’t – he just made it up with whatever sounded best as he went along. Debating is easier when you have no regard for truth.

    swr: if I cut my income by 80%, and increase my spending by 300%, I will not create debt: THAT equals “Reaganomics”. Yes, I do know basic economics. Of course, add in two wars “off the books” and "W"s version steps in!

    Since it hasn’t been mentioned here (rather astoundingly), it was Joe Biden who prompted this cartoon by saying that the middle class has been buried for the past four years of his boss’s administration. Not Bush, not Reaganomics.

    Romney is on record as promising an across the board tax cut of 20% – that amounts to almost $5 trillion. There were other goodies. In an amazing display of chutzpah at the debate he flipped anything that would not sell well. Just saying it won’t happen doesn’t make it so. How do you trust anyone to be president that says whatever is convenient?
