    GE: Jack Welch Tweet: Obama a Loser Debater, 7.8 Jobs Numbers An Obama Conspiracy

    FOLLOW: Barack Obama , Unemployment, Unemployment, Video, General Electric, Jack Welch, Jobs Report, Jack Welch Jobs Conspiracy, Jack Welch Jobs Numbers, Business News

    Not everyone celebrated Friday's jobs report, which showed that the unemployment rate dropped below 8 percent for the first time in nearly four years.

    Ex-GE CEO Jack Welch called the numbers "unbelievable" and accused the Obama campaign of fudging them in a Tweet on Friday:

    Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers

    Welch wasn't the only one to float jobs-related conspiracy theories Friday. Washington Examiner writer Conn Correll accused "a bunch of Dems" of lying about getting jobs and others described the drop as "just like magic," according to New York Magazine. But Welch's conspiracy theory isn't being taken too seriously. Felix Salmon of Reuters may have actually been the most generous in his response:

      The Reasons for Change is Obama has Lost the Support and Respect with Women Voters and Others.

      People Notice: Most Men and Women are Turned Off Against Barack Obama most everywhere and Across All 50 States,

      Here is the the Review of Debate 3 on October 22, 2012
      By a Jewish Women Focus Group of 7,890 Women Connecticut Across America

      Our Strong Plea for Change in the White House, Why? The following reasons listed bellow.

      Note: This review is a agreement amongst a Group of almost 8000 Women watching debates.

      During the Debate 3, President Barack Obama was Arrogant, Disrespectfully, Angry, Rude and Condescending to Governor Mitt Romney. Obama did not Act or Look Presidential.

      We Feel Governor Mitt Romney Pasted the Presidential Test and is Ready to Lead USA

      We Support Mitt Romney, found him to be a Smart, Respectable and Decent Gentleman.

      Governor Mitt Romney Looked Much More Presidential, Ready to be Commander-in-Chief.

      Mitt Romney said America Needs a Strong Economy in order to have a Strong Military for our National Security right now and the Future. ...... We All Agree.

      Women came away from this Debate with a Very Good Impression of Governor Mitt Romney, in that he would be a “ A Safe Pair of Hands.” in Foreign Policy and a Strong Economy. We Trust Him More. Obama lied about Libya on 9 11 ( a 8 hour fire fight, Obama watched did nothing)

      In Foreign Policy We feel Mitt Romney is Tough Enough to do what’s necessary, but laid-back enough not to do too much and get us into another war.

      Miit Romney Did Not attack President Obama's Policies, he Simply Pointed Out a Few Needed Improvements in a Very Respectable Way.

      During the debate Governor Mitt Romney Seemed More Like a Leader, Smart, Respectable, Thoughtful and Considerate. He looked and Acted more Like the New American President that our Nation and the rest of the World Needs so Disparately in These Troubling Economic Times.

      Governor Mitt Romney was Calm, Thoughtful, Relaxed, Steady, Looked Like A Smart Gentleman and More Presidential.

      Romney Looked and Acted as if he was Ready to Take the Job as Commander-in-Chief ASAP.

      President Barack Obama Looked more like a Very Disparate Candidate and Challenger, very Negative, Acted like a Disrespectful Attack Dog Instead of the President of the United States.

      Mitt Romney Expressed his Concern about Iran's Nuclear Threat that is 4 Years Closer and the USA Support of Israel, our Good Friend and Middle East Ally. The strained relationship with the Obama Administration.

      Tonight Romney Impressed the Ladies Very much, in that a Vote for Him is a Vote for American Security, Peace and Safety, a Strong Economy, a Strong Military, Millions of Higher Paying Jobs, Prosperity for the Middle Class and Others. and a Quiet Peaceful Life for USA and all People.

      The World is Much to Scary these days, Americans Aren’t Looking For a Scary Arrogant, Angry. Rude, Disrespectfully and Weak President. Barack Obama is Not the One to Lead us Any Longer

      Tonight we Came Away with the Feeling that President Barack Obama is extremely a more Scary Candidate then the President of USA.

      We are Concerned about America's Weaken Relationship with Israel, a Nuclear Iran, our Weaken Economy and the Huge 16 Trillion Dollars Debt, that in itself Threatens our National Security.

      Americans, Black, White, Latinos, Wake Up, USA Debt is Bigger than our Gross National Product.

      We Can Not Afford Four More Years of President Obama's Spending, Borrowing and lies.

      We Can Not Afford Another 5 or 6 Trillion Dollars in More Debt From China or Other Countries.

      Our Jewish Women's Focus Group of almost 8000 Democrats Therefore Proudly Endorse Governor Mitt Romney as the Next President of the United States of America.

      Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan Before It's to Late. Do it Now ....ASAP

      Public Notice: We Feel Strongly that President Barack Obama is No Longer Fit to Lead USA.

    • Women Review Debate 3, Governor Mitt Romney Pasted The Test, Ready to Lead USA

      Debate 3: Women's Review: President Obama Was Arrogant, Disrespectfully Angry Condescending to Governor Mitt Romney on Oct 22, 2012.

      Mitt Romney's Stunning turnaround in these past 3 debates

      Obama has lost support among Jewish women voters.

      Most Jews are Turn Against Obama across the 50 states,

      A Jewish Women Focus Group of 7,890 on October 22, 2012

      President Obama Was arrogant, angry, disrespectfully, condescending and much to aggressive, did not look very presidential at all.

      Governor Mitt Romney looked much more presidential, ready to be commander-in-chief. America he said, needs a strong economy in order to have a strong military for our National Security now and in the future.

      We came away from this debate with a very good impression of Mitt Romney, in that he would be a “ a safe pair of hands.”

      We feel he’s tough enough to do what’s necessary, but laid-back enough not to do too much and get us into another war. Romney did not attack President Obama's policies, he simply pointed out a few improvements in a respectable way.

      During the debate Governor Mitt Romney seemed more like the president and Barack Obama more like the candidate and challenger.

      Governor Mitt Romney was calm, thoughtful, relaxed, steady and looked very presidential. He looked and acted ready to take the job as commander-in-chief. Expressed his views on Iran's Nuclear threat and the USA support of Israel, our good friend and ally.

      He impressed us tonight, in that a vote for him is a vote for American security, peace and safety, a strong economy, a strong military, millions of higher paying jobs, prosperity and quiet peaceful life for us and our families.

      The world is much to scary these days; Americans aren’t looking for a scary weak president.

      Tonight we came away with the feeling that President Obama is more the scary one, in America's weaken relationship with Israel, a closer to Nuclear Iran, our weak economy and the huge 16 Trillion Dollars in Debt, that in itself Threatens our National Security.

      We can not afford four more years of president Obama's spending and borrowing another 5 or 6 trillion dollars from countries like China. Our jewish women's focus group therefore endorse Governor Mitt Romney for the next president of the United States of America.

      Obama's Re-Election is very questionable. Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan

      ObamaCare’s Red Tape Will Devastate The American Economy

      Posted October 10, 2012

      A Study By The “Independent American Action Forum” Focused On ObamaCare’s Devastating Impact On The American Economy. “Fully implementing Obamacare regulations have already cost the U.S. economy $27.6 billion and more than 18,000 jobs according to a new study released today. Just the top ten most expensive regulations have cost $24.4 billion, according to the new non-partisan and independent American Action Forum (AAF) report.” (Conn Carroll, “Study: ObamaCare Regs Have Cost $27.6 Billion, Killed 30,000 Jobs,” The Washington Examiner , 10/9/12)

      The Study Found That ObamaCare Has Added New Regulations Totalling $27.6 Billion, $20.4 Billion In Costs On Private Businesses, And An Additional $7.2 Billion On State Budgets. “To date, the ACA has imposed a total of $27.6 billion in new regulations – at least $20.4 billion in lifetime costs on private entities and $7.2 billion in increased burdens on state budgets.” (Sam Batkins, “The State By State Impact Of ACA Regulations,” American Action Forum, 10/12)
      ObamaCare’s Exchanges Are Predicted To “Cost Employers $3.4 Billion” According To Data Compiled From The Federal Register. “Just complying with the state health exchanges alone has to cost employers $3.4 billion according to the AAF totals which were compiled from Federal Register data.” (Conn Carroll, “Study: ObamaCare Regs Have Cost $27.6 Billion, Killed 30,000 Jobs,” The Washington Examiner , 10/9/12)

      ObamaCare’s Regulatory Paperwork Burden Is Estimated To Have Already Cost 30,000 Jobs. “In addition to the regulatory costs, AAF estimates that ObamaCare regulatory compliance has eaten up more than 60 million hours in paperwork. At 2,000 hours a year that comes to 30,000 jobs.” (Conn Carroll, “Study: ObamaCare Regs Have Cost $27.6 Billion, Killed 30,000 Jobs,” The Washington Examiner , 10/9/12)
      ObamaCare Has Hit California, Texas, New York, Illinois, And Florida The Hardest And Has Cost Those States A Combined $9.5 Billion And 7,386 Employees. “The five states bearing the largest regulatory burden in cost and lost employment are not surprising. California has the single highest burden, with $3.4 billion in total compliance costs and 2,917 lost employees’ work. Texas also bears a substantial burden: $1.8 billion and 1,292 lost employees’ work. New York ($1.7 billion and 1,383 lost employees), Illinois ($1 billion and 816 lost employees), and Florida ($1.6 billion and 978 lost employees) also carry a heavy burden.” (Sam Batkins, “The State By State Impact Of ACA Regulations,” American Action Forum, 10/12)

      Jobs and Costs

      “Twenty States Will Lose” 300 Employees And An Additional “27 States Will Have A Burden Of Over $300 Million In New Regulatory Costs.” “Twenty states will lose the equivalent of 300 full-time employees’ worth of work filling out ACA regulatory red tape. Additionally, 27 states will have a burden of over $300 million in new regulatory costs.” (Sam Batkins, “The State By State Impact Of ACA Regulations,” American Action Forum, 10/12)

      The American Action Forum’s Estimates “Represent A Cost Floor, And Not A Ceiling” As Costs Can Exceed The Original Estimates. “The ACA’s $27.6 billion in new regulations represent a cost floor, and not a ceiling to implement the ACA. Most private entities will feel these costs and $7.2 billion of the added regulatory burdens fall directly on state budgets.” (Sam Batkins, “The State By State Impact Of ACA Regulations,” American Action Forum, 10/12)

    • Mitt Romney is the one, next President with your help!!!!!

    • Oh President Obama a Hypocrite and Liar: Obama White House paying women employees 18% less than men?

      In light of the so-called Republican “war on women,” the Washington Free Beacon recently investigated the internal pay scale of employees at Obama’s White House, to see how “fairly” they are treated.

      Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

      According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

      The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits…

      It is not known whether any female employees at the White House have filed lawsuits under the
      .

    • A senior Romney campaign staffer talking to Power Play about the strategy for the closing weeks of the campaign.

      Two weeks ago, Mitt Romney trailed in five Rust Belt battleground states by an average of 6.9 points in the Real Clear Politics Average of polls. This morning, his average deficit was just 3.2 points.

      While all 11 swing states have moved his direction since the Republican nominee’s boffo performance in his first debate with President Obama, Romney has seen the most significant improvement in the core column of the swing states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa.

      Power Play readers have long known that the 2012 election would come down to the nation’s industrial heartland. Yes, Florida, Virginia and North Carolina are crucial for Romney. And certainly the president needs to hold on to his Western firewall in Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico.

      But this election, like most in recent memory, was always going to be about how those folks in the I-70 corridor and surrounding areas would vote. With 70 electoral votes up for grabs – votes that Obama swept in 2008 – the battleground stretching between Allentown, Pa. and Sioux City, Iowa has been the main front in this political war.

    • people help coming soon

    • Another crook, David Axelrod, President Barack Obama and most of these Chicago Political Gangsters Guys will do anything to win.. Obama can't debate so orders his labor department to change job numbers from 8.1 to 7.8. Obama should be vote OUT of the Whitehouse ASAP!!!!
