    Romney / Ryan are two of the best numbers guys on earth.


    Obama was a Community Organizer.

    How can it be "mathematically sound" without defining what loopholes Romney would close?

    If you laid economists end to end they couldn't reach a conclusion. Economics is probably the softest of the soft sciences, Princeton tiger or not.

    The thing liberals never figure in to their calculations is that some cuts in the right places will ultimately help create jobs and, therefore, new revenue. That revenue would go farther with more workers and less on the doles. Seems like liberals are more interested in redistributing money and their main goal is simply taking from the rich and giving to the poor. They don't focus on getting those poor into the work force and off welfare. The left likes as many people needing them as possible.

    They know they could create legislation condusive to job creation, but they don't. Obama has had 4 years to help the economy and instead he created policies that were job killers. Now he's out there campaigning as if he just burst onto the scene as a new candidate rather than the one responsible for the lack of recovery.

    That's the problem with this country right now.

    Obama does not play well with others, stands the economists in the corner, does what he wants to do, and the first thing you know, ethics issues are piled up outside the front door of the White House like I cannot believe.

    You may not like what a good economist says, but you can count on one thing--the best ones do their homework, and we have a couple around here who know their stuff. You should give them another chance, regent. Obama didn't, and he will not be President after January next year because he is getting voted out for not playing well with others and ignoring good advisers.

    No way the economy can grow enough jobs in the short term to make his tax plan not explode the deficit. I know everyone likes to think that the economy will just magically recover overnight with a republican president but inflicting more conservative fantasies on us like trickle down is not really going to do us any favors.

    Ryan is exactly what's wrong with this country. A hypocrite that has spent 20 of his 42 years living off taxpayers dollars to buy his mansion his lavish yearly salary complete with life long pension and healthcare yet he screams about Government helping you as a bad thing....His creepy funeral director looks seems well suited to a man that wants to kill so many essential programs for real working families.

    Romney doesn't want to talk about his governorship because he left with a 34% approval rating.

    Romney doesn't want to talk about Bain Capital because he looted American companies and shipped their jobs overseas.

    Romney doesn't want to talk about his religion because its a weird cult.

    Romney doesn't want to talk about his taxes because he supervised the biggest tax fraud in American history at Marriott.
