    The GOP is Threatening Your Job

    By LOLGOP

    ——————————————————-

    If you have to sabotage the economy to win, your ideas suck

    Of all the terrible lessons the Republicans have learned since 2009, the worst is: Economic sabotage works.

    In 2009, the President’s immediate efforts to stimulate the economy and rescue the auto industry took us from losing 800,000 jobs a month to creating thousands. But, before the policies were even in place, the GOP called it a failure.

    KNOW THIS: The Stimulus was the most successful economic effort since World War II. Yet the GOP was able to make it a bad word by employing Karl Rove tactics with Koch brothers money–carefully crafted talking points repeated endlessly.

    The way the Stimulus reversed the layoff crisis was obvious. But it couldn’t move fast enough to undo eight years of Bush/Cheney so the public bought into this baldfaced lie and gave the GOP the House of Representatives in 2010. Sabotage worked.

    Posting from earlier cause important.

    Great article -note the 5 question david cay johnston says teh media should be asking Romney:

    “1. Did you buy any illegal or gray area tax shelters?
    “2. Did an IRS audit ever uncover serious problems with any of your tax returns?
    “3. Did you make use of offshore vehicles to defer, or avoid paying, federal income taxes?
    “4. Did you take advantage of any tax strategies that the IRS did not uncover in audits?
    “5. Did you fully tithe to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints every year and take a deduction on your tax return that shows that?”

    Ahh, the power of Youtube! Romney: “And if you are going to suggest to me that somehow the day I got elected, somehow jobs should have immediately turned around, well that would be silly. It takes awhile to get things turned around.”

    Economists: Romney’s ideas wouldn’t fix short-term crisis, and could make things worse

    By Greg Sargent

    —————————————–

    Mitt Romney frequently faults President Obama for not having any kind of plan to pull us out of our employment slump. But would Mitt Romney’s ideas help fix the economic crisis?

    I asked two economists to take a look at that question. Their conclusion: While both said they support some of Romney’s long term goals, they both agreed that Romney’s ideas would do little or nothing to fix the immediate crisis, and could in the short term make things worse.

    The question of whether Romney’s ideas would fix the economy in the near term has gotten short shrift, because presidential campaigns amid a bad economy tend to focus relentlessly on the incumbent.

    President Obama says he’s up against the most expensive campaign “in history”

    (CBS News) As his bus tour rolls through Ohio, President Obama told a crowd in Sandusky that he is facing an uphill battle this election when it comes to matching his Republican rival’s campaign cash.

    Mitt Romney and his supporters will spend “more money than any time in history,” the president told a few hundred supporters Thursday in Sandusky, Ohio, a town between Toledo and Cleveland with a population of about 25,000.

    Weak jobs report will force the Fed to act, but Congress remains paralysed

    With a risk of rising unemployment, the Fed may launch QE3. But where’s the outrage that so little’s done to cut joblessness?

    By Justin Wolfers

    —————————————————-

    I’m stunned to report that in both policy and political circles, most commentators take the fact that Congress will do nothing as simply a pre-ordained constraint. That’s just not the right framing. In reality, it’s an enormous dereliction of duty. Congressional leaders are important economic policy-makers, and they’re turning their collective backs on conventional economics. It’s cliched, but true: if you aren’t outraged, you aren’t paying attention.

    And then, there’s the White House. President Obama continues to propose policies that he hopes will yield bipartisan support. The most recent Jobs Act contains many proposals that were originally Republican ideas. Some of them are small ideas; others are bigger. But they languish, and can’t get any traction in Congress. Economists estimate that the various programs that Congress has refused to pass would have led another 1m jobs to be created.

    Of course, the Romney campaign has opportunistically jumped on these latest numbers as proof of Obama’s lack of economic leadership. But look a little harder: what is Romney’s policy for reducing unemployment? I spent a whole day on his website trying to find it. Glib talk about a love for free markets and promising ever-greater tax cuts for the rich do not qualify as a serious plan.

    If one looks at blogs with anti-PBO comments or speaks with someone who is anti-PBO concerning the economy it is impossible to have an intelligent conversation. Not one realistic alternative to PBO’ plans is offered, be it from Willard or anyone else. The country is beyond a conversation. The alternative is nothing but “Obama is bad”.

    Chuck just admitted that nothing they say matters until after the debates. to paraphrase, he said that they will continue to present the cases as they see them daily as if every day matters, but it doesn’t until independents start taking notice. So now can we resume our efforts to GOTV, volunteer for PBO, and stay on our local media outlets to report fairly (most do now), instead of catching the flu just becuase somebody on cable sneezed?

        Brought this over from Rise and Shine:

        Morning everyone:) Just been reading and thought I would share this

        http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/06/opinion/mr-romney-changes-his-mind-again-on-health-care.html?_r=1&hp

        Why the switch? As he has on so many issues, Mr. Romney caved to Republican conservatives who want him to campaign on the falsehood that the mandate is a vast tax increase on the middle class. The Supreme Court’s decision that the law is constitutional was disastrous to their cause, so they distorted its basic reasoning. Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. wrote that the mandate is legal under the Congressional taxing power, which Republicans took a step further, saying the mandate must now be a tax. And not just a tax, but a huge, oppressive tax, one of the largest in history.

        Someone FINALLY mentioned this, and that is that Justice Roberts wrote that the mandate is legal UNDER THE CONGRESSIONAL TAXING POWER…..not that the mandate WAS a tax!!! As with everything else, Republicans with their myopic pea sized “brains” saw the word tax and ballooned it to a HUGE OPPRESSIVE TAX!! Oh noes!!!!!!!!!!!

        Anyway….I thought this was important. What’s even MORE important, is to get rid of these obstructionist Do Nothing’s in the fall so that the adults can get some work done for the people. Hammer this message like nobodies business. We need to move FORWARD!

I think our pres thrives on the competition and it’s giving him extra energy and spark. We should all start making fun of the billionaire props that Willard needs to conduct a campaign. Romney needs billionaires to stand him on his feet. PBO is continually lifted up by the love of the people.

    Good Afternoon TOD,

    A year ago I started my own grassroots fundraising page to build the kind of grassroots organization we’ll need to win this November. Through the generosity of donations by you and many friends and family I have raised in excess of $13,000.00 for the campaign.

    I want my page to show that political power can come from organizing at the grassroots level all over the country, not just powerful interests in Washington.

    Together we can protect the progress we’ve made, and build on that progress over the next four years.

    Will you support the President by making a donation of $3 to my page today?

    I think I’m going to follow this person on Twitter.

    http://republicanjobcreation.com/

    ”Republican job creation”

    During the 2010 mid-terms the GOP ran mainly on the platform of job creation and, as a result of such promises, the GOP gained the majority in the House of Representatives. As the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner made the welcome claim that the primary goal of the Republican Party was to increase employment in the U.S.

    His exact words were: “We’re going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs.”

    The following, therefore, is a chronological list of legislation by the GOP beginning 2-10-2011 that I created for my own amusement. That it has reached its current imposing length, without one anecdotal citation of new employment as a result of Republican legislation, is simply shocking. Shame on these useless hypocrites.

    I just copied a few on that list…it’s long!..from 2011 to a couple of days ago…the diarist always finish with ”no jobs were created”…..which is a fact….

    2-29-2012: The House failed to pass the Research Works Act, which would have prohibitied federal agencies from releasing the result of taxpayer-funded research. No jobs were created.

    3-2-2012: Yesterday the House spent most of the day debating and passing the San Joaquin Valley Water Reliability Act. Meanwhile, in the Senate, Democrats, plus Olympia Snowe, fended off the execrable Blunt Amendment. Meanwhile, Speaker Boehner vows to continue contraception fight. Because it’s all about jobs, right? No jobs were created.

    3-5-2012: On Thursday, the 1st of March, the House unanimously voted to allow itself to give oral histories of the civil rights era, then condemned Iran for finding one of its citizens guilty of apostasy. The House then took Friday off. No jobs were created.

    3-7-2012: On Monday the House spent two whole hours naming two federal buildings and then adjourned. On Tuesday they shuffled paper all day regarding a Bureau of Reclamation bill involving hydropower development. No jobs were created.

    MORE EYEBALLS ON THE ROMNEY “SILLY” VIDEO

    In 2006, Romney Called The Same Unfair Accounting He Uses To Assess Obama’s Jobs Record ‘Silly’

    ———————————————-

    When Mitt Romney criticizes the job creation record of the Obama administration, he contributes job losses to Obama that took place in January 2009, immediately after the President was inaugurated. As the New York Times explained, “By counting from January 2009, Mr. Romney paints the bleak portrait of a country that despite a modest recovery still has fewer jobs than it did when Mr. Obama took office.”
    However, when he was Governor of Massachusetts, Romney called that sort of accounting “silly.” In a video uncovered by American Bridge, Romney explicitly rejected attributing job losses from the beginning of his term to his own total, which is exactly what he has been doing to slam Obama:

    THE GUY’S RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, FOR PETE’S SAKE.

    It’s Starting To Look Like Romney Has A Dirty Tax Secret

    Kenneth Thomas, Middle Class Political Economist

    —————————————————

    “1. Did you buy any illegal or gray area tax shelters?

    “2. Did an IRS audit ever uncover serious problems with any of your tax returns?

    “3. Did you make use of offshore vehicles to defer, or avoid paying, federal income taxes?

    “4. Did you take advantage of any tax strategies that the IRS did not uncover in audits?

    “5. Did you fully tithe to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints every year and take a deduction on your tax return that shows that?”

    These are important questions. We know that Governor Romney has had a Swiss bank account, as well as money in other tax havens like the Cayman Islands, Luxembourg, Bermuda, and Ireland. Romney’s answer to any question about his taxes has basically been, “Trust me.” But the guy’s running for President, for Pete’s sake. He owes us more than that.

    “Tucked away in the act is a pilot program for 10,000 people called the Independence At Home program. This is a technique first developed by the Veterans Administration — motto: Single-Payer Works! Just Ask Us! — by which a patient with a chronic disease, like Alzheimer’s, is treated in his or her own home by a team of doctors, nurse practitioners, geriatric pharmacists, and any other health professional whose specialty is required. This is not only cost-efficient, being infinitely cheaper than hospitals and nursing homes, but it is a comfort for the patients and their families, for whom familiar surroundings can be essential for psychological well-being. (Thrusting an Alzheimer’s patient suddenly into a hospital is just asking for a track meet down the halls.) The program also recognizes the reality that a huge percentage of Medicare patients are suffering from two or three chronic conditions at the same time — Alzheimer’s patients have heart disease, people with Parkinson’s also have diabetes, etc”

      this support for aging at home is another win for women! most older women i know are unwilling to place their husbands in nursing homes, even when their care becomes a round-the-clock, exhausting, heartbreaking, martyrdom. but the support of a professional team will provide some relief, and hope, and perspective.

    They need to be called out! One of my local blogs just wrote about the “disappointing” jobs numbers. I wrote back a scathing reply as to WHY…and chastised them for not including this in their piece. I will now ADD this to the mix…we should all do the same:)

      Absolutely how to fight back. Take it to them directly, often, and with facts that are own our side.

    Love that photo of our President having breakfast at the counter like Mr. Regular Guy. Mostly because he seems like somebody you’d want to have the pleasure of sitting next to, at a breakfast counter in Anytown, USA. Or my town, in particular!

    Visiting grandkids are gathered around son, watching Daddy play Imagine by John Lennon and Love Her Madly by the Doors on the organ in our “music room” – and all’s right with the world!

    Nothing to do with President Obama, other than I’m one happy member of TODville right about now!
