Cherry picked statistics, never show the truth. It is only meant to be propaganda to pull the wool over your eyes, once again.

I support the president's re-election.

And it's currently encouraging to see some positive economic developments.

But I realize that the recovery is very fragile and developments in Europe could lead to another collapse. If that occurs, November's results could go the wrong way, with millions of voters misplacing blame on Obama.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

You don't need charts to prove anything. Now that Limbaugh has pissed off every sane woman on earth, and the republicans refuse to repudiate him, Obama is set to win by what could be a greater spread than the Bush-Dukakis match regardless of other factors.

I would look for the Democrats to OWN the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office in November.

Your first chart shows what capitalism is supposed to do. The goal of capitalism is to maximize capital not create jobs. Every American worker who is replaced by a change in technology,or process or by a worker in a low wage nation is a victory for the capitalist system. Why do silly Americans think the system will spread the wealth around thats not an efficient way to maximize capital! Friedrich, Karl, Vladimir and ZeDong are all smiling from that great socialist heaven in the sky where GOD spreads the wealth around.

In a nation where there is no comitment to employees, why do you think a average person can service a 15 oor 30 year mortgage when he is not sure of having a job onle a few moths from now (chart 2). Should we give away free houses.

Its funny you would show a chart of gas prices going up in Canada. A nation that is a net exporter of oil and run by a real knuckle dragging caveman named Steven Harper!


As for debt as long as we want to act like Julius Caesar and out spend the the rest of the planet combined on weapons of mass destruction, and pay for our senior leisure class then we should set appropriate tax rates.

If you think that creating jobs is not an important issue, Obama is for you. If you think the best way to reduce the deficit is to keep increasing spending and raising taxes, Obama is for you. If you think that algae and the Chevy Volt are the answer to decreasing gasoline prices, and not utilizing our own energy resources, then vote for Obama.

1) If you think the republicans care about jobs, ask yourself how many they have introduced legislation to create since November 2010. Then ask how many bills they have introduced dealing with Americans' private sex lives.
2) If you can tell us how the republicans would have done anything differently, sing out. It is necessary to spend whatever we have to in order to increase the tax base, which is the only way tax revenue can be increased without tax increases. That means, in short, creating jobs. Also see point #1.
3) If you think we can replace the 30% of the world's oil that we use by squeezing out the 4% of the world's oil that we own, please educate me in your system of math. I want you to do my taxes for me. Include in your explanation, please, why an oil company would invest in drilling ore oil to ell it to you more cheaply at the pump. That is not how business works, or has ever worked.

The oil speculators are the ones responsible for the rise in gas prices. My guess is that electric cars will come into their own when gas rises to between five and seven dollars per gallon, and the probem then will be that there will not be enough available capacity to manufacture them fast enough.

The electric automobile is to the internal combustion engine as digital photography is to view cameras with glass plates. You may not see it now, but you will in another 20 years.
