Quotes and quibbles
Boehner: “Sometimes I have to catch my breath and slow down because the rhetoric in this campaign is just so over the top. And that’s because the President’s policies have failed. Listen — 93% of Americans believe they’re a part of the middle class. That’s why you hear the President talk about the middle class every day, because he’s talking to 93% of the American people. But the President has never created a job. He’s never even had a real job for [God’s] sake. And I can tell you from my dealings with him, he has no idea how the real world, that we actually live in, works.
From community organizing to the Senate to the Presidency, there hasn’t been much he has had to work for or actually earn. From what history we know about, there isn’t much about BO doing any actual work. Even in his short stint in the Senate, not one bill with his name on it was ever introduced.
“Well, it’s time for Harry to put up or shut up,” Romney said. “Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with because of course, that’s totally and completely wrong.”
Romney added: “It’s untrue, dishonest, and inaccurate. It’s wrong. So I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we’ll probably find out it’s the White House. Look, the Obama campaign is going to do everything in its power to try and talk about anything besides the president’s record.”
Reid says the American people want to know about all those years of tax returns. He lies, none of us really care. It’s Reid and the White House trying to deflect from BO’s dismal record and policies. Romney paid almost 3 million in taxes, and like everyone, took allowable deductions. Romney didn’t “invest” using insider information nor did he manipulate to get stimulus money pushed to banks and businesses he owned or was invested in. Can the Senator say the same thing about the members of Congress? http://hotair.com/archives/2012/08/03/reid-my-source-on-romneys-taxes-is-so-incredibly-credible-that-i-wont-say-who-he-is/
As the country struggles to gain growth traction, the unemployment rate held above 8 percent for the 41st consecutive month, according to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics…..[snip]
Despite the seemingly good news, the report’s household showed that the actual amount of Americans working dropped by 195,000, with the net job gain resulting primarily from seasonal adjustments in the establishment survey. The birth-death model, which approximates net job growth from newly added or closed businesses, added 52,000 to the total.
Good news? They have the nerve to call this good news? I have news for Congress and this idiotic bunch in the White House, stop regulating us to death, taxing us to death and, get out of our way, we the people can turn this around. We create the jobs that bolster the economy. Stop trying to fix it, you can’t. You are just making a bigger mess for us to clean up and, we are getting mighty tired of cleaning up after you infantile people all the time. Stop trying to micro manage our lives and everything we do. Do something more in line with your jobs like simplifying the tax codes, or tort reform, cutting the size of government, spending cuts, deficit reduction, medicare and medicaid reform. Do something about the real problems this country faces, for once. We would love it if you just stopped being so mindnumbingly stupid.
