    On both nights, Obama and Biden, when speaking on the economy - always-always talk about how bad it was in 2009 and how much they have done to make it better.
    What you don't ever hear them talk about (or 98% of the media) - that economic growth has slowed to a crawl for 30 straight months.
    Biden and Ryan both spoke on this - and both Obama and Biden quickly spouted off data making comparisons to the worst year in over 50 years...but you never see them compare each year to the last.
    And you won't.

    The fact the economy has barely grown at all in 30 straight months is a non-issue to you - or you can't quite grasp the concept?

    Obama flat. Biden a demagogue, a bully, and a flat out liar. In the next few weeks, I expect the polling to reflect the deception that Joe so blatantly spewed!

    That is an issue that is facing our country right now, instead of each side listening to the other they turn a deaf ear. If both sides listened and both presented ideas we might be able to get somewhere. But it's turned into if the left says something it's BAD and if the right says something it's automatically BAD.

    There is no middle ground, just arguments and if we don't try to hear one another then we will never get anywhere.

    So 30 straight months of non-growth is a talking point?
    Well - you know - actually I believe you would think that.

    Did you just pull this out your ass like Ryan did last night? Have you paid any attention to the fact checkers? You just prove all they have to do is say it and you believe it. Obama told Romney his tax plan wont work without adding to the deficit. Romney replied "where did you get this 5 tril from"? Then said "If I say it wont add to the deficit then it wont add to the deficit". Ryan basically said the same last night Joe's reply "Mathematically Impossible" The Tax Policy Center's answer? "Mathematically Impossible" Go to the TPC web site and read the plan and read why it can"t work. See that word CAN'T as in CAN NOT work. It is a mathematical impossibility. He can't do it he can't he can't he can't. No matter how many times he says he can he still can't. That is unless you believe Romney is smarter than math. You probably do.
