    Cant wait for the town hall debate. Old mitt will have answer to the 47 percent he dogged on hidden video..that “i was completely wrong was too little to late

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    James

    Are you kidding Romney is saying he wants to drop umemployment to 5%. If you count all the people that have stopped looking the rate is 11%. The corrupt Lib. media will tout this number and it will help the President. We have two more debates for the very capable Mitt Romney to slam that point home. Thank God for debates.

  • Mark

    @Sicilian Papa
    ————————————-
    Those swing State polls are devastating to President Obama. They always under sample Republicans and we are still winning or tied.
    ————————————-

    So 2 polling companies that lean Republican have slight leads for Romney and it’s “devastating”. As for under sampling, here is how most polls work, they call 1000 people and if 30% say they vote Party A and 40% of those people say they vote Party B, that’s how they report their results, it’s not some wild conspiracy theory that the polls are scewed in favor of Party B

  • Sicilian Papa

    At the town hall will the Prez. be allowed to bring his buddy Tele Prompter.

  • Hello

    omg what happened to Early Start/Starting Point’s numbers?

  • Mark

    @Papa

    At the town hall I will be curious which positions Romney adopts for that week(that will most likely counteract any position he had this week)

  • Sicilian Papa

    Thank God for debates or we would have no chance.

  • betty

    Trust me….MsNBC dont care about Unemployment Numbers….they DO care about
    RATINGS Numbers and Theirs are DOWN. Hullo?

  • amanda

    @james Yea Obama tells the truth.Ill cut the budget,open transparency (cspan)Libya etc,etc…….

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    The lefties

    There is nothing better to me than watching President Obama answer questions that the corrupt lib. media has never asked him in all the time he has been on the national stage.

    Romney is good, he’s smart and he can answer the questions.

  • James

    Obama came in office when unemployment was at 10 %..he got it down to 7.8% in just 3 and a half years…and without the heartless gop. This man is the FDR of this decade

    Man Tells Obama: Business ‘Terrible Since You Got Here’

    An Ohio man at the market told President Obama that business has been “Terrible since you got here,” according to the White House pool report. Via the pool report:

    Potus stopped to meet people waiting for him, where he did the requisite hand-shaking, high-fiving and the rare baby-holding before going on to chat with proprietors at Turczyk’s Meats and the adjoining Larry Vilstein’s, Christopher Bakery and Edward Badbuster & Son. He then asked the proprietor at Rolston Poultry how business was going. “Terrible since you got here,” the man said. Pool could not get close enough to the Rolston Poultry man to get his name or political affiliation. Potus didn’t appear amused by the sentiment.

  • Mark

    @Papa
    —————————-
    Romney is good, he’s smart and he can answer the questions.
    —————————-
    On sometimes he even answers them truthfully. let’s be honest here, most the positions he took on issues on Wednesday counteracted stuff he was saying just weeks ago and now we are supposed to believe him now?

    Romney is nothing more then a snake oil salesman willing to say what he has to, to finish the deal. That might work in the word of business but I don’t think it’s the greatest quality for a President but that is just me

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    James

    Look it up it was 7.8 I believe. It may have been slightly higher but it wasn’t close to 10%

  • James

    What a difference 2 days make it went from you righties jumpin around about the debate to now whinin about the unemployment rate dropping…take that

  • Ratboy

    WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    I looked it up the rate was 7.6 when the Prez. took office. James don’t listen to Tingles. I heard him say that too. He’s an idiot.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    James

    In your defense you here someone on a TV news show say that and you figure he is telling the truth. You know people will check. Tingles is a sycophant. Don’t pay any attention to that dope.

  • James

    Hahaha and fox news tells the truth every night.
    Gimme a break

  • Ratboy

    Here is the key! Unemployment was at 7.6% when Obama took office. If the same number of people remained in the workforce today the unemployment rate would be 11.1%!!!!!

    All the people that quit looking have helped the number but not the situation! In reality the situation is MUCH worse than when Obama took over. You wont hear much about that though if you watch clowns orver at the clown college, MSDNC.
