Republicans acting like Republicans
GOP leaders had told Biden: "We will not work with this president."
Have you noticed? Noo Republicans mentioned that their congressional strategy was to DO NOTHING to help Obama recover the economy for the last four years....just so they can blame him at election time.
They sacrificed YOUR jobs so they can take HIS in January! How patriotic was THAT?
Anti-American Republican Congressional Conspirators trying to overthrow the elected government! Treasonous!
And thanking the troops for their service in the Bush Wars?
Romney supports the "Military" and their supply contractors, just ignores the troops.
Yes you DID, George Bush! Where are you?

Congenital heart defect post-op
After claiming for over two years that President Obama's signature legislation, The Affordable Care Act, was everything from a bloated Socialistic government program, to a Communist plot to overthrow the U.S. it was unusual and certainly unexpected to hear Fox News' James Rosen state the following:
In March 2010 after almost a year of fierce debate Mr. Obama signed into law a landmark overhaul of healthcare. With its individual mandate to purchase insurance and trillion dollar price tag The Affordable Care Act will, according to congressional auditors, bring health care coverage to 30 million uninsured Americans and reduce the deficit by $210 billion over a decade. Read it!
Even some FOX NEWS people grow tired of Romney's lack of specifics. Check it.
And racism isn't in the Republican party? Bullshit.
CNN reported that multiple witnesses saw it happen, and police immediately removed the two people from the premises. We all get that.

Lecture to the politicians and the media back east....
Radiomankc: Actually, maybe many ignored national website commenters bring some truth to the Washington media and political crowd that they didn't know....about under-employment or unemployment. The hosts probably don't even READ these comments from mainstream America because they're so arrogantly think they already KNOW what we think. Yes, how arrogant!
I think the six-figure crowd in the Washington/Virgina area doesn't really quite understand what Americans have been going through as the Republicans and Democrats are fighting over the 2012 White House election. Yes, without all the bullshit pandering by politicians on network TV.
This is why the Congress and the DC media have such a crappy poll results on TV. It's clear, you're all more interested in your OWN interests than our American people's interests.
While you were distracted by the conventions...
Faux Noise...pathologically unfair and unbalanced...

Jobs report falls short, yet again
09/07/12 12:13 PM ET- Today, the U.S. Department of Labor reported more disappointing news. The economy created only 96,000 jobs in August, the unemployment rate remains above 8 percent, and more than 350,000 Americans have dropped out of the work force. While some may focus on the jobs that were created last month, this jobs report is nothing but horrendous. I welcome any jobs, but American workers giving up on employment in the weakest recovery since the Great Depression is cause for alarm, not celebration.
President Obama’s policies of more spending, more debt and more taxes haven’t worked. It’s way past time for a course correction. The country needs responsible leadership, not the president’s boasts over anemic growth and unending pleas for patience. Americans are looking for a sustained and real recovery. This weak report is nowhere near enough, and this has gone on long enough. Any real jobs plan must stop the regulatory madness and avert the fiscal cliff of tax increases on January 1. The health care law is yet another drag on the economy. Small businesses need tax relief and regulatory certainty to grow and hire.
The answer to creating jobs and jumpstarting the sluggish economy shouldn’t be a surprise. Small firms are the biggest job creators. Yet, the vital role small businesses play in economic growth is still overlooked. Together, these small firms consistently create 60 to 70 percent of new jobs, year after year, and employ more than half of the entire U.S. workforce at 27 million different places of business. That means we all have a vested interest in keeping that dynamic job creation going strong.
But unfortunately, small businesses are barely staying afloat. Based on NFIB’s monthly economic survey that will be released on Tuesday, small businesses have experienced no growth over the last few months. We can do better than this.
The House has passed more than 30 jobs bills that sit idle in the Senate, with no leadership from President Obama to move them forward. The House also created a Plan for America’s Job Creators to boost private sector growth, while our counterparts in government sit on their hands. House Republicans can’t do this alone.
If we want to successfully address our nation’s unemployment crisis, we must promote policies that provide confidence to small businesses. If we want to see Americans get back to work and our economy recover fully, we must start with our nation’s best job creators — small businesses — and remove obstacles that prevent growth and job creation.Graves, a Republican from Missouri, is chairman of the House Small Business Committee.
