    impose new trade tariffs on China, (hello, tariffs are taxes, Mitt will be taxing the American people)

    Still, the Standard & Poor’s 100 Index of the biggest U.S. companies rose 5.5 percent in 2012 through yesterday, beating a version of the S&P 500 that strips out weightings for market value by the most since 1999. Earnings for the 100-company measure are projected to reach a record high this year, according to analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg.
    The S&P 500 Index (SPX) has risen 4.6 percent so far this year.

    Look at that. Corporations are doing fantastic. Mitt thinks we need more help for corporations and less police, firefighters and teachers.

    Duh! What does that tell you?

    Not only that..he wants to start a trade war with China.

    That's not the only idiotic thing he said today..but it was the beginning.

    He gave a long rambling speech filled with lies and half truths that almost made me think he was on medication.

    He really needs to write stuff down.

    A little Freudian slip by the radical left that a president has the power to "impose a new tax". Left over wishful thinking I suppose.

    They don't care he gets money from the "abortion" pill zillionaire, Phil Frost.

    They don't care he dresses in police drag.

    They don't care if he assaults someone (in fact, they think that's "funny")

    They don't care if he has dinner in a causal atmosphere sitting under paintings by Adolph Hitler.

    They don't even care he takes us back to Bush Economic policies.

    Or that he belongs to what Liberty University teaches is a "cult".

    He's white. That's all they care about.

    Trade Tariffs used to work just fine in America. What f*cked things up were Free Trade (Not Fair Trade) Agreements and the Income Tax paid directly to the IRS.

    Now if he said Tariffs would REPLACE other taxes I'd listen, but he didn't say that.

    He's been saying this for a while now, along with his promise to lower taxes even more for his one percenter cronies.

    What's so damn funny about this Norquist/Rove tool is that his cronies made their money from foreign trade, just as mitt did.

    Mitt is lying or, more likely, mistaken. He wouldn't be raising taxes on foreign companies or foreign banks any more than he would invest in the United States.

    He would do whatever will bring more money to his bud's and less money to the working class. He has no way of knowing exactly what he'll do until Norquist/Rove tell him. I suspect they would be more than willing to let him have his bloated military AND the war he says he wants.
