    What does that mean?
    That he will keep the annual deficitis as they are now?
    Did he say he will not add to the debt?

    Could I see a link to see or hear what he actually said? I am assuming you are referring to the question of taxes, and his proposal to lower tax rates and cut deductions and loopholes. Lots of debate over that, some say it ain't possible to be revenue neutral, others say yes it can if economic growth is increased and more jobs are created.

    My take - I'll believe it when I see it happen. This one goes up there with the democrats telling us the stimulus bill would lower the UE rate below 6% by now. I think Romney would need other things to happen besides this to spur economic growth that much, especially in the face of a potential global slowdown next year. I do think however that whether he hits his goal or not, I'd rather see him doing this than Obama continuing his policies for 4 more years.

    Listen closely to what politicians actually say, do not just hear what you want them to be saying.

    What Mittens says and what he must do in the future, are not always the game plan he used to get elected.Variables exist which affect actions to a particular situation.

    I do not think Romeny's proposals actually include a reduction of the debt so much as they include a reduction in the speed of gowth of that debt.

    Well, that and a while lotta cutting of anything that doesn't make his MASTERS wealthier.

    Shirley to goodness you are not implying that Obama found a very different situation in the country than what he originally expected and had to change his decision process to meet the change he encountered?

    You mean "variables exist which affect actions to a particular situation".

    Well no shit sherlock.

    But Obama said the UE rate would be lower than it is now. After coming in office and finding a economic disaster.

    But you rethugs sure as hell didn't cut him any slack now, did you?
