"Oh my god, the rate of unemployment is 8.2! 8.2! 8.2! GUYS! 8.2!!!"
"Well yes, that's the lowest it's been throughout Obama's term. Plus, you fail to realize that when you begin bringing troops back from a war, it causes unemployment to skyrocket."
"Well, Mitt Romney would fix it!"
"Really? Because he did such a good job with Bain Capital!"
"WELL HE'LL KEEP THOSE DUMBASS ******* OUT OF OFFICE!!"

And this basically sums up the reason why Obama's going to win this election.

Bush, that dumb monkey president we had before the enlightened savior of the world graced us with his presence, managed to have an average employment rate of about 5.3%. That idiot only had to deal with the biggest terrorist attack on American soil to deal with, as well as the dot com bubble, but he somehow pulled it out.

What many like you fail to realize is many people don't hate Obama for being black, but that his policies suck! You think Bain capitol was that bad? Obama lost more money in the first year of his term. The media makes Obama look either really good or really bad but statistically from both sides he has done absolutely nothing for this country
No one can really know who wins this election, although I'm not a big fan of Romney I'd rather have him than Obama
You liberals or democrats who hate everyone who hates Obama and can't seem to see through Obama's seemingly good policies can go **** off, really, even Bush (who Obama blames everything on) did a better job when handling a war on terrorism and the housing market crash; but no, all I heard from Obama is blaming Bush or Romney's rich! And I don't even want to mention how badly CNN and MSNBV lied or how badly Fox News interprets certain democratic decisions
Politics today have changed since the 90's, I liked Clinton but he made one mistake that couldn't be handled.
Sorry Obama lovers but Romney needs to win this election, he may not be good but there are many reasons why he would be better than Obama.
And I'm supposed to be a moderate democrat

"lost more money in the first year of his term"
90% of that money lost was for the war in Iraq. Which was not started by Obama.
"absolutely nothing for this country"
Except for completely fixing the housing crisis and giving poor people a reason to live.
"No one can really know who wins this election."
Obama is already expected to win by about 5-10 points. (which is a lot). Also, Mitt Romney doesn't have the support of his party. There are many republicans who don't want Romney to win.
"Bush did a better job when handling a war on terrorism"
No. Bush started a war that we didn't need. (in Iraq/Iran) That war continued for 10 years. Obama finally stopped it and put us where we needed to be. Ever hear the whole clause "Despite all that Nixon did wrong; he still stands as a great president for taking us out of Vietnam."
"Romney needs to win this election."
Go look up the Great Depression, since it's obvious that you don't know what that is. The only reason the Great Depression got as bad as it did was because of Republican policies (which are not bad, but are HORRIBLE in an economic downturn) under Herbert Hoover. It wasn't until FDR, a Democrat, came into office that we began to repair things. The reason for this is because Republican policies capitalize (ever hear the word "capitalism") on money that we have and turn it into even more money FOR THE GOVERNMENT. Democratic policies SOCIALIZE the money and return it to the PEOPLE. You need to balance these two things. And if you put a Republican into office in an economic downturn you will RUIN the economy. (Examples: Hoover (repaired by FDR), Reagan (repaired by Carter), Bush Sr. (repaired by Clinton), Bush Jr. (compounded by Bush Jr. for 8 years, currently being repaired by Obama))

This is why all of you who think Romney would be good for the country right now need to go back to school and learn about History.

You naive fool, try looking things from both sides not just one; also some of your facts are in fact biased and slightly incorrect
1. The Great Depressions started from the worldwide economy debt caused by WWI which halted all trade, increased tariffs, and stop the flow of money which failed due to the Secretary of Tresury (who served both Rep and Dem for years) The problems only escalated because Republicans couldn't stop it (although tried with Hoover Dam), however FDR succeeded he led people to think that people needed to rely on the government to control everything instead of individual hard work to earn money. Also the Rep didn't do anything because they expected it to be like the usual Panics (throughout American history, economic crisises are common in both Democrats and Republicans)
And Nixon did a great job ending Vietnam (which I agree was a mistake) but his only fault was the Watergate
2. If you actually studied politics, most republicans follow Reagan's policy to DECREASE the SIZE OF THE GOVERNMENT so that money can flow in free markets. Obama and Democrats want to increase government regulation of companies to influence a welfare society in which everyone can simply get money which is taken from rich people through taxes ( corrupt or not)
3. Romney initally didn't have good support but now he does. Although I would've liked other people besides Romney I would have picked anyone other than Obama
4. ********, the economic crisis started through Clinton and it has not been solved. Many poor people today due to a DEMOCRATS decision and with many not affording homes and not wanting to work because of illegal immigrants and the idea that social policies will give them welfare so they can have free money
5. You think it's iraq's fault we lost money? Because the failed Stimulus bills and other Union bills didn't? Has the economy improved? No it didn't. Obama failed Do you know how many are unemployed without the war? No one knows what will happen now
Next

"Obama and Democrats want to increase government regulation of companies to influence a welfare society in which everyone can simply get money which is taken from rich people through taxes ( corrupt or not)"

This instantly makes you look like a complete retard.

If the top 1% of America had all of their money given to the bottom 1%, the middle 98% would benefit GREATLY. Of course, that is communism, but that would cause an enormous amount of OVERALL wealth. You CAN'T have somebody who has enough money to support 100 people (while only supporting themselves) while you have thousands of people (with JOBS) who can BARELY support themselves and definitely couldn't support a family.

People like you have ruined the American dream, and therefore all that America stands for. YOU are the reason why half of the world hates us. Please, just leave the country and take all the dumbass people like you with you.

Wow those words you used including the 1% look like they're taken straight out of the liberal news
You think what I said is retarded? Look at how Obamat undermines Congress and the Court. Do you even understand what socialism means? What a welfare such as giving power to labor unions and people getting welfare? Do you know how much rich people are getting taxed? Do you even have a reason for what I said is retarded
Did you know the American dream is different to everyone? Do you even know what the American dream is and how it always turns out to be a lie? Grow up kid and learn that if you want to change society to fit the American dream so there are no poor people lying in the streets suffering you must first understand that what you believe and do to change America will NEVER undo how society has been based since the dawning of civilization
Give me a REAL reason as to what I say is retarded you twit faced faggot because your naive ass needs to finish high school before you can even act like you know about everything that's been going on for the past few years

6. Most wars are expensive and this isn't the first time America went to war during an economic crisis, Obama wants to blame Bush for the economic crisis that began with Clinton; the money was spent on capturing leaders which could've been helped had the media kept their dicks shut and not tell everyone everything for money
7. All media today but small few are pretty much biased and won't give you the right information for both sides (especially MSNBC or CNN or parts of Fox). You need to loose this biased **** blame bush **** and actually study politics and history before you come arguing me kid.
8. Carter was one of the WORST presidents in history and FWI you fail when you say Carter repaired Reagan when Reagan came after dumbass
...You clearly know nothing and should stop trying to understand politics when you understand nothing about why Obama has failed in keeping his promise, tried finding REAL solutions and stop blaming others for his mistakes
I forgot to add, but Obama doesn't have full support either, it seems the Clintons are moving against him
Stop trying

Have you ever stopped to think about how self-serving that is? I mean, if you can't blame the president for what's happening while he's in office, how are you supposed to decide if what he's doing is worth getting more of? Also, you can simply say that the success of this guy is due to THAT guy who isn't in office anymore.

Trends. You can look at trends. Yes unemployment has still risen while Obama has been in office, but if you look at a graph of unemployment, it's been rising more slowly since Obama took office, on its way to a turn around to start getting lower.

#48 there was only referring to economics, of which you would be surprised to find how little control the president actually has. In addition, he/she was correct in that there is a 5-10 year cycle before you can really see what effects a president HAS had on the economy.

I suspect that if elected, this will NOT apply to Willard Romney. Given his personal wealth and connections, he can make tremendous and immediate impacts on the economy OUTSIDE of the office, and I guarantee you that he will. So far, he has demonstrated that he is perfectly happy to move jobs to overseas rather than hire american workers, because foreign labor is cheaper and he makes more money that way. I suspect that in office, he will push to have things like labor contracts outsourced internationally and take even more jobs from the American people desperately seeking them, and put even more American money into foreign hands. With our level of debt, which Mitt cares NOTHING about or he would have done more with his own money to alleviate it, that would be disastrous.

PS: President's never have to pay taxes again. Think Mitt might have some motivation that lies outside of the good of our country for trying to get the job? He HATES paying any kind of taxes, and given his ridiculous income, he'll be taking a good chunk out of our economy when he leaves, even at the 13-15% he payed last couple of years.

below is a couple of **** nuggets that think they know **** about politics and the economy

all some of you do is pick sides without any knowledge on what their agenda is or whats going on with our economy. you are like american idol voters that vote based on how good the other person looks.

you wanna know the truth? in 6-8 years america is about to have the biggest fallout EVER recorded in history. why?
"hurr its because obama is wasting moneyz"
"its because people like romney is out sourcing jobs! derp"

No its because we export NOTHING you *********. you sit at home all day watching tv and you dont even realize that america barely grows is own food anymore. we get imports from china, mexica, and canada.
our only hope for success was our industrial means, which china does for 100% less than we charge.
in 4-5 years we wont have anymore money to buy anymore food, can you guess what happens then? not to mention the fact that we are wasting money on locking up weed dealers and **** like that

polititians are dirty, corrupt assholes that is clearly stealing money however they can not fix the economy because we dont have anything more to offer.

TL;DR?
you are so ****** and you dont even know it yet.
if you can get ready to move to canada, if you cant buy as much silver (not gold) as you can while sustaining your financial status.

Unemployment spiked in 2008.(inb4 "lol, spiked obama's first year", you can't get **** done in congress at anything faster than a snail stuck on glue's pace)
The Stimulus was introduced in 2009.
Ever since, unemployment has been going down.

Romney is rich, yes. Why? Because he worked for companies who bought out other companies, many times shutting down/closing down branches or entire companies themselves, killing jobs, to only go on and get every cent of the money they had been promised for "saving the business".

Romney also has **** social rights ideas(gay marriage & women's rights to their own bodies)

Romney has tons of things wrong with him, including he's rich. Anyone liking this post is only looking at the information shown, not anything past it, which is what matters the most.

Obama said that if the stimulus passed, by summer 2012 unemployment would be 5.6% and the deficit would be halved. The deficit has doubled and unemployment rate is nothing to brag about. Last month more people went on disability than found jobs.

Your arguments against Romney are infantile and seems to be parroted word-for-word from Obama's attack ads. Do you really count "being rich" as a defect? That's ******* retarded. Romney made his fortune in the business world. He's an expert at it. That makes him highly qualified to be president at a time when the economy is a huge issue. Unlike the "Community Organizer" we have in office that demonizes success and thinks in preposterous that someone could become successful by working harder.

Being rich is a problem in Washington, not just for Romney. If you don't see that I don't know what's wrong with you.

I've seen just under 1 attack add in my state on TV(granted I don't watch much now a days, seeing as I work over 40 hours a week), but I do read plenty of CNN articles, watch the news(mostly local, but I watch Daily Show and Colbert Report because they're ******* hilarious). So you're wrong about that.

Also, how has he demonized being successful? Being successful is a great thing, it's what you do once you are that makes the difference in being Mitt Romney(someone who hoards millions of dollars he will never use, someone who has done terrible things with money[see the buying up and destroying of companies by Bain while he was in power], terrible things I would never want our leader to do.)

Also, I hate that Obama lied about the deficit and unemployment. I really do, but that dosent make him any worse than any president in history. If you can prove to me that even 25% of president have made good on every single one of their campaign promises, I will admit you are right about that point. Good luck.
