    Romneys big plan is to make the military bigger. Dump all social programs and give it all to the military as a jobs program. We already have the most expensive military in the world. Romneys plan is a total waste of resources.

    Yes, Ted, I understand the cartoon. It’s dumb. No humor or trace of reality.

    Based on his time at Bain, and the fact that he is still listed as 51% owner of Bain, it’s a very real reality. Mitt also said a blind trust isn’t really blind, because you can direct the trust what to do when you set it up!

    Hey, the military needs supplies from industry. Even when the Pentagon does think they need the supplies, Congress says they need the supplies. Wheeee!

    One of the best takes on “job creator” that any cartoonist has done.

    Clearly Ted has been reading up on how Romney made his money: he wouldn’t lead Bain Capital unless they guaranteed his income — so no risk, like a real entrepreneur; and he set up deals where he used a small amount of company money to get large amounts of other people’s money, paid himself every time regardless of what happened to the company, and left wreckage behind. He took advantage of loopholes in the way business worked, he didn’t invent, create, or innovate in any real way. Even his shining model of Staples is saying he didn’t do them all that much good. And let us not forget he lobbied to reduce his taxes because this ridiculous approach to money-making is now considered “capital gains” despite not generating any capital — except the money lining Romney’s pockets.
    For those who think he is a job creator, you need to wise up.

    Oh, please. Obama is more financially literate than Romney or Ryan — he doesn’t lie about the basic arithmetic. His plan actually lowers deficits, and he agrees with every serious economist about the 30 year record of failure of trickle-down economics, which creates neither jobs nor growth, only a wider wealth gap. Romney and Ryan probably do understand — but there’s no money for THEM in reality-based economics, so they pretend not to.

    After reading the Stockman exerpt in Newsweek it looks like this is true.

    This is Romneys plan, so you are right, no facts are involved.

    Worst cartoon ever? That could never be true when the phrase “brain trust of power vixens” is part of a cartoon,

    Also, for you Romney supporters, don’t take it personally. Your guy is a turd, but so is the President. I hate them both equally.

    Your definition of moderate is all the evidence we need for a competence hearing.

    NICE CARTOON TED! He shouted! Funny how Howie is getting out trolled by ansonia. Thankfully you,ruff,and lonecat,motive,walruscarver,dtroutma,canucky,eryx,radish, and the real thinkers help to keep this site real. I’m skipping the comments more frequently of late due to trollitis.
