How about we add "mob" and "alinsky" to the list?
Both those words have been in my vocabulary when talking about Dems ever since Obama from his Chicago background working with all those Alinsky people came along.

Is there some way that regulation of business is creating jobs? I just can't find that one being useful for anything but gaining and keeping control. For instance, my son, the tractor mechanic, has been a real hater of the EPA for a long time and they are ruining our economy more every day. Controlling that group would do more good for job creation than about anything I can see.

de-regulation of the wall street/banking/insurance/oil/coal industries and the ability for everyone to self regulate to the benefit of the ceo's and upper management of these too big to fail inustries that created the problems. Regulating those that refuse to see that their particular industry is a cause of problems they don't want to clean up nor pay to have clean up is the only reason we have to have places like the EPA. If people would take responsibility for their enviornmental messes, the government would have no reason to bother to step in. But no one thinks "they" should have to be regulated, after all "they" certainly don't contribute to the problem.

Propaganda catch words taught by Beck
Marxist
Socialist
Van Jones
Code Pink
SEIU
And of course George Soros

There's also Boehners "job creators"
Bachmann's "one term president"
Cain's "9-9-9"

Really it's a telling sign the right doesn't have the intelligence to understand discussion or facts, all they want (or can understand) are just simple catch words and phrases

Yeah, and next week it'll probably be about "gays", "abortion", and "guns" (but still nuthin' re: JOBS)!!

You mean like the simple phrase " Shovel Ready Projects "
See how we can all play this game? Be careful how you talk about one party when your very own is playing the game too.

^^ So that's it, that's all you can come up with (which I suppose is pretty much par for the right wing anyway)...?!
