You're actually listing 8.5% unemployment as an achievement. LOL. Dear God, seek professional help.

So we shouldnt take your postings seriously? Dont wory, I dont!!
Please explain why they put millions in the Cayman if not to gain advantage? Why would Mitt be reluctant to disclose this? Why was Clinton impeached because of an affair? Why was Weiner ran out of Congress? Why do republicans put so much stock in morality but DONT expect their candidates to show any. How pathetic.

Can we now be done with the everyman "guests" who sit in The First Lady's box, and whose life experiences are chosen to highlight points of The President's speech? They look like "deer in the headlights" when their names and stories are mentioned.

It's been so overdone.

Mr Frozenyo thinks a teacher making $35k pays a higher rate effective rate than Romney. Any further discussion is pointless. Clearly he is arguing just to argue. The effective tax rate on someone earning $35k is 10% if he is married. His highest marginal rate is 10%. The effective rate is 13% if single. His highest marginal rate is 15%. This assumes a simple standard deduction before credits.

Does this board have an ignore feature? I see no reason to engage in conversation or discussion with someone who is intentionally obtuse.

I can deal with a person who wants to debate ideology or a position based on facts. To make false assertions shows a lack of sincerity and desire to do anything other than spin an agenda.

CBO: Unemployment would have topped 11% without stimulus


Google is so easy.

I alrady did, but it seems you dont understand no matter how many times its explained to you. You put money in foreign banks to protect it from JUDGEMENTS, not taxes.

If you consider the Jersey Shore like GOP debates complete with their discourse on important issues like who slept with Newt, "an actual discussion of ideas" and a state of the Union address spoonfed pap yes.
