    I guess ill vote for Paul Ryan if he decides to run. Is government spending really 25% of our gdp? thats obscene.

    The chickens are coming home to roost. The "recovery" that Red is so convinced has worked was nothing more than newly printed greenbacks thrown around like candy to stimulate the economy. It was fool's gold. "Green" and government jobs are fingers in the dyke that have no lasting effect. No jobs are being created because prospective employers are afraid to invest in their businesses, let alone increase payroll. Obama is convinced that taxing the wealthy while continuing to spend more than he brings in will make everyone equally fat and happy.

    Which GOP candidate can turn the tide? Any one of them because they are not convinced in their own minds that social justice trumps (pun intended) the threat of a fiscal calamity.

    it doesnt matter how fiscally responsible and smart they are. seems who ever gets into office immediately goes into payoff mode. it's like an automatic switch. to both sides.

    Our economy was doing just fine until that damn Obama got into office.

    Pay better attention. There were 54,000 new jobs created last month. The reason that there are not more is that there were about 40,000 government jobs lost, knocking that number down by that much. State governments are just beginning to eliminate workers to meet lower budgets, which means fewer taxes gathered and a downward budget spiral.

    Government jobs are not being created, they are being lost. And increasing the unemployment numbers in the process. This is something that the Republicans wanted to happen. So don't be so disingenuous to try to blame it on Obama.
