I would love to know why Romney has NOT spelled out how he would fix the economy and create jobs? An idea: Slash the overburdening taxes on small businesses with less than 50 employees. I know of many small firms with 2 to 3 employees that pay over $2,000 a month in Federal Taxes for employees that work 40 hours a week @ $8.00 per hour. That is $2000 in Federal Taxes on roughly $4000 a month in income for 3 employees. Way too much! You have Federal Income Tax, Social Security Tax, Medicaid, Unemployment Compensation, and Workmen's Compensation to pay each month. I think we can do a better job by lifting some burden on small firms, and allowing them to better use their capital to grow their firms and enable them to hire more people.

75% of all jobs created are @ small companies, and NOT at Giant GM sized firms. When they can hire more people, those employees have money to buy things, and then other firms selling items to those employees can expand and hire more employees, and repeat the process until unemployment is low and GDP is high. At some point the size of Government would shrink due to less people being dependent on them, and more dependent your their own pursuit of happiness.

Exactly, so when someone does the opposite it says they are either incredibly stupid or it is a deliberate attempt to sabotage the nation. Given that this clown has communist friends, mentors and associates and has never run so much as a shoeshine stand, I vote for the latter.

Joe,

You were 100% correct until your last sentence. Any chance that government will shrink is somewhere between zip and nada. The only thing that a bureaucrat can do efficiently is to justify his/her existence while doing nothing.

IF we can educate enough of the electorate that all legislator's jobs are threatened if they don't seriously prune the public sector, government will shrink. It'll take at least 3-4 election cycles to get to that point, assuming it's not too late now.

Obama’s latest mea culpa just confirms how far gone this presidency is.

In an interview with CBS’s Charlie Rose, Obama says that the problem he’s had isn’t with the failed policies of his first term, but rather that he failed “to tell a story to the American people,” according to a report in the Christian Science Monitor.

"The mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American...
