Why is it that the news media continues to bash Romney and his past job record.

However, the news media is silent on making any comment about the Obimination and his "no previous past job record" prior to him becoming president.

And you can't compare his "presidential job record" because there isn't any - just a lot of spending with the unemployment rate staying at 8%

At least Romney has experience dealing with corporations and understanding the ins and outs of businesses unlike our present Obimination.

You should mention that Barack Obama was a United States Senator before becoming President. Mitt Romney was a governor of Massachusetts. While he was governor he was instrumental in passing state medical insurance very similar to the federal health insurance program passed by congress and signed by President Obama.

You may or may not like what President Obama has accomplished in the past 3 1/2 years, but he has been president, while Mitt Romney has tried to figure out exactly where he stands on which issues; they're all so complicated, he can't help but change his mind several times a week.

You can't compare what Obama has done during his presidency with regards to jobs to that of Mitt Romneys past job record.

If we were to have a debate and the question comes up about Mitt Romneys job record while being a governor how would that question apply to Obama? It couldn't.

It's stupid thinking for the people or the news media saying that Obama has a better jobs record then Mitt Romney - Obama has no jobs record when it comes to dealing with private sector jobs.

Mitt Romney had at his disposable private individuals funds, having to be accountable to the investors.

Obama on the other hand has at his disposal vast amounts of taxpayer money not having to be accountable to anyone.

His accountability by most who want to vote him back in is irrelevant to them whereas when it comes to Mitt Romney they want to discredit him.

I'm not sure what you're talking about and I'm not sure whether you are either.

Mitt Romney said just a short while ago that his goal for an employment rate would be 4% as he criticized the ~8% rate; my goal would be 0%. I must be a better candidate than Mitt Romney; I can outpromise him. He doesn't have a job record.

If we take actions while in the private sector, we'd have to guess that he wouldn't care at all about the unemployment rate, since he likes to fire people.

What I am saying is that Mitt Romney has a "jobs record" Obama does not.

Now with regard to the unemployment rate - there has never been "0%" in the history of this country and it is unrealistic to think that it will change within the next 5 or 10 years.

The "private sector" are the job creators not the government. If the 5 trillion that has already been spent doesn't get your attention I don't know what will.

People are plain broke from excessive spending and they continue to do so till this day. There are a vast majority of people who are doing just fine - why is that?

It's because they have a plan and learned what it takes to not only survive but continue to prosper - and these people are not wealthy millionaires nor are they wealthy billionaries.

They are people who planned and it's paying off for them.

There are lots of woods in this country where shelters can be built out of logs from the forrest. Plenty of game - deer, rabits, squirrels, etc or for that matter they can start a farm and grow pigs and cattle.

Not that hard to do if a person puts their mind to it and it may be possible to do it for free. Sort of like the people over in the middle east living in caves.

Hate to disagree with you. However, I will concede to you only if you were born and raised in NYC. Lots of people there have never seen a real cow.

In order to reelect a president as bad as Obama has been Romney will have to be destroyed in the publics mind. There is no lie that will remain untold, no smear left in the toilet, no attack will be too vicious. If Romney is elected every one of us will have to get jobs!! Austerity means no free shit!

They're going to take is back to the 50s alright, no government to take care of us, every man for himself, work, work, work!!!
