    (sigh) Yes, Obama killed all the jobs. He was so good at it that he managed to crash the economy before he even became President! The fiend!
    .
    It’s like economists have been saying: if cutting taxes on the rich created jobs, we’d be swimming in ‘em by now. After all, we did that for thirty solid years. Instead, today’s “giant sucking sound” is the top 0.1% vacuuming up more wealth than ever, at the expense of what used to be the middle class.

    “Obama killed the jobs.”

    The unemployment rate was 10% before he was even elected. The only logical explanation is that Obama traveled back in time and personally forced all those companies to move the manufacturing jobs to China.

    The problem isn’t voting for a wealthy person, it’s getting them to share some of it.

    Trickle down hasn’t worked. The Laffer curve is a sardonic laugh. Supply side economics don’t create demand. Six years of “printing” money hasn’t created inflation. The stock market has done nothing but trend UP since Obama struck his first White House golf ball; the deficit has done nothing but trend DOWN.

    What do RepubliCons gain from not seeing or hearing or speaking the obvious? Ask yourself. And ask what you personally are gaining from being RepubliConned.

    My home business works from folks’ disposable income.
    .
    I mentioned almost a year ago that it seemed to be ticking up and I would provide an update.
    The uptick is not as fast as I would like but things are getting better at a regular pace.
    Next year is on line to be better than this year.
    This year was better than last.
    .
    Slowly we are coming back from the previous attempt to destroy America.
    I was worried it was past repair, glad to be wrong.

    When it comes to voting for a wealthy person against one who isn’t rich, I don’t care. FDR was rich and he did more for the middle class than anyone in American history. Actually, he pretty much created the middle class. I care what they say they will do when they get in office— will they work for the middle class or for the rich. The Republicans will tell you quite bluntly that they believe in old fashioned capitalism, trickle down economics. The Democrats will tell you that they think it could use some adjustments to stop the income inequality that has become increasingly pronounced in the last 20 years or so. Now, I think all politicians are basically in it to win it, and they will do and say whatever it takes. The Democrats, if they win will continue to play the tune that put them there, so will the Republicans. Since I’m not rich, it’s to my advantage to vote for a Democrat. I probably won’t vote for another Republican until l can actually feel some of that trickle.

    “Tell a guy who has been on unemployment for a year that he is guaranteed to be making 6 figures in 5 years if he agrees to work 80 hours a week and I bet 99% will say, “no thanks.””
    I am not out of work, but give me more information on how that works, and where I need to move to. I live in a red state and the average income is below $29000 a year. (many work over 40hr a week, etc, etc.)

    If Tommy Toles did not deliberately misunderstand every thing he would have no understanding at all.

    @Doctor Warbucks

    “rich” people built this country back in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
    -
    Crap. As if they were out there laying brick and digging trenches. The fact is, LOTS of people built this country, and to not acknowledge the contributions of everyone is to shortchange reality. That’s a horrible thing to do to the masses who sacrificed their time, health, even lives for the chance at a better future. Look at our tall tales that celebrated work: Paul Bunyon, John Henry, Mike Fink, Casey Jones, all workers celebrated for the sacrifices they made to contribute to advancing the nation. No Banker Von Baron, or Industrialist Ivan, or even Manager Maximillian. No, the work and the workers were celebrated, because of the admiration for someone who out forth so much effort, so much skill, so much of themselves. How dare you ignore the accomplishments and addition by entire populations. Each deserves recognition of what he or she did. And by that metric, each also deserves to have their shortcomings recognized: The greed, the cheating, the insider deals, and the deaths caused whether through carelessness or murder. Your one-sided, one-dimensional view doesn’t square with history or reality.
