    WashingtonTimes says Obama has worst record since WWII

    Washington times is a fanatic Republican paper.

    Boehner and the Congressional Republicans are working overtime to retard recovery by destabilizing the business/investing environment and so dampening investment in the US. Their donors don't have to worry about getting a job. Republicans in Congress will make a living after their faithful service. For example Rep Sen Gramm, who wrote the legislation enabling unregulated derivatives and worked hard in the Senate for Wall Street on financial "reform" for years eventually went to work as a Washington lobbyist for the Utah subsidiary of UBS, the Swiss bank. He was a VP. Now he has a nice job with the Heritage Foundation AFAIK.

    Romney is running on a crony Capitalism and plutocracy platform. That is a formula for failure that has been a disaster in country after country in modern times. It fails because it is not Capitalism and Markets which we know succeeds. Wall Street and present US medical care overall are crony Capitalist bubbles bought in Pay-To-Play Washington. They are eating more than a quarter of US GDP and also retarding recovery.

    The Republican "trickle down" or "supply side", Romney's economics, is a hoax, a cover story for redistributing wealth upwards. Do we get jobs out of it? No - we get offshore accounts, offshore investment, and shocking consumption. Wall Street and the Republicans detached themselves from Main Street years ago. Main Street is the real US economy. That's where most innovation and net new job creation happens. The corporations more and more buy their global interests in Pay-To-Play Washington, not American ones.

    • The Republican majority House of Representatives have been passing budgets and job creating bills but the Democrat majority Senate has been blocking every single one of them.
      It takes a lot of money to develop ideas into products, test them for safety and to comply with thousands of fed regulations, and then to mass produce and market them. You libs are clueless about how business works. I own a small business and I emply a few people, but i can't afford to hire anymore because of the radical increase in federal regulations from Obama along with his $4 a gallon gas prices. ($1.60 when bush left) Obama's regulations caused even more companies to shut down factories in the US and outsource those jobs in other countries.
