Yeah, Reagan got off to a rough start. Carter handed him a real mess but

look what happened in 1985. Reagan created over 1 million jobs in just 1 month!!!


Job creation by administration..

Twenty-two million jobs were created during the Clinton administration.
[With a tax rate the same as Presient Obama has proposed for the wealthiest Americans]

Job creation data for each president since 1960, courtesy Wikipedia:
Kennedy-Johnson Administration: 5.9 million
LBJ administration: 9.9 million
Nixon's first term: 6.2 million
Nixon-Ford administration: 5.1 million
Carter administration: 10.3 million
Reagan administration (both terms): 16.1 million
Bush 41 administration: 2.6 million
Clinton administration (both terms): 22.7 million
Bush 43 administration: 1.95 million

Or put another way: From 1980 to the end of the Bush 43 administration, all three Republican presidents combined produced, over a period of 20 years, two million fewer jobs than Bill Clinton managed to eke out in eight.

There you go. Finally !!!

Some meaningful stats.

Reagan and Clinton had incredible job growth.


The World Wide Web gave birth to companies that appeared out of nowhere.

Google - Yahoo - eBay - Amazon etc. Jobs - Jobs - Jobs !!!

Bill Clinton didn't invent the internet and neither did Al Gore but it's okay for them

to take credit for the economic boom. It happened on their watch.


Wow, look at those jobs created on Reagans watch during the 1980s.

According to Kimberley Strassel WSJ - "You didn't build that" has shifted the focus

to the president and his decision to respond to the criticisms has only legitimized them

and - guaranteed - they continue.


The only folks upset about that comment are the small to mid-size business owners. The 10 or 20 or 100 people working for that company were happy to hear Obama's comments (which were taken out of context by the way).

You're right that it was a mistake to respond to them though. He should just play his game and ignore the Republicans. There are way more poor people these days than there are rich people. He'll do just fine catering to his crowd. Poor people can still vote!

For every gaffe that Obama makes, Romney makes an equivalent one, and regardless the hard-core Republicans will support Romney, and the hardcore Democrats will support Obama, but in addition to them, most of the black people, majority of Hispanics, slight majority of women, and independents and angry republicans like me will either vote 3rd party, not vote at all, or vote for Obama out of spite for the Republican party being so out of touch with its base.

Romney has no chance!

Read the whole article.

WSJ -Kimberley Strassel spells it all out.

The Obama / David Axelrod focus groups are ringing a 140 decibel alarm !!!

- It's 4 little words - " You didn't build that ! "

- Obama is doomed -

This drop in the Q2 GDP to 1.5% only makes everything even worse.

That's not good enough. We can do a lot better.

You should know that Obama has 1 unforgivable sin.

-- He added $5 Trillion to the national debt in less than 4 years. --

These $$$ trillion dollar deficits can and will come to an end.

He doesn't know how to fix it, because that is not the agenda he have in mind, his agenda is keep eroding the hard productive working class so he can add more jobs (numbers) to the hard working welfare class. Like that he can claim that he had created jobs.

And people will bite into it.

At the end the deficit will keep growing waste and abuse will stay the same and the nation will belong to anybody else but Americans.

Thank God the election will be in a little over 3 months.

It's too bad we won't be swearing in President Mitt Romney until January 20, 2013.

I hope he picks a good VP.

He, he, he created jobs so the illegal immigrants he gave amnesty too will have jobs in America while the rest will fall for welfare.


And yes Regan also help create the corporate dictatorship.


Reaganomics. This so-called economic concept of Ronald Reagan was that if you cut taxes you would increase Federal Revenues since economic activity would increase. The increase in economic activity would bring with it increased Federal tax revenues. In other words the tax cut would be self liquidating and self paying since any lost revenues for the moment would almost immediately be made up by increased revenues in the future. It didn't cost anything, therefore, to lower taxes and the economy would be stimulated to new heights.

In truth, Reaganomics was a smoke screen for a hidden agenda. Taxes were cut, only in the first year of his presidency, to keep the American public happy while a plan to increase the national debt by $2.5 trillion was being concocted. What for? The United States systematically overspent on national defense to crush the Soviet Union since it was obvious they couldn't keep up. It took Reaganomics only 8 years to increase the national debt from $1 trillion to about $3.5 trillion!

Reagan was and actor that believed he could play the role of president

When Ronald Reagan was governor of California the state was in great shape.

Look at California now.

Deep in debt and companies are fleeing California to go to Texas.

Of all the polls I have seen, yours is the only one which has Romney ahead.

I usually don't put too much emphasis on polls, but the fact that Obama is ahead on ALL of them except for the one you provided, speaks volumes about the actual situation.

No president can fix a global banking meltdown because it's complete and totally corrupt. The system needs to be replaced and none of the current people running it now can be involved.

I wonder what they're saying over at Harvard Business School right now?

It looks like Europe is stuck in an unending bailout nightmare.

The USA is participating in something called - Quantitative Easing - ?


QE-1 , QE-2 & the liberals are praying for a QE-3 !

Is this anyway to run a planet???

- Lets all just print money ! -

America will be taking a positive turn on November 6, 2012.

The polling data is turning on Obama.

The US economy is dragging him down. He can't run on his terrible record.

Obama is clearly a 1 term president.

You seem rather confidant. And while I dont hold much preference for either O or R, I do tend to think Obama is the pre-selected 'winner' this time, as last.

So, you being so confidant in your predictions, and me being rather confidant in mine, what say we make a little online wager of sorts? Not for money of course, but for something... say, if Obama wins, you have to have a silly kitten avatar, and if Romne wins, i will have to have a silly kitten avatar.

How bout it?

Britain doesn't envy the United States LOL.
No offence but we just don't. Lmao. We aren't the only nation either. Economically I can kind of see what you mean but socially and politically no.


The Brittish have a great country of their own, with a wonderful people and a rich culture. We also happen to be close allies. Let's face it, almost everyone in the world envied/envies the US, the Brittish are one of the few that shouldn't. Although if we are being honest we can both agree there are Americans who have been envious of the Brittish and there are Brits who have been envious of Americans.

Personally I dont want any Brit to be jealous of us, I would prefer that we are both happy with the successes we have both achieved, and know that we are both willing to lay it down for each other.
