    Interesting, isn't it?

    Also, if the rate of growth just remains the same as it has under the Obama Administration, 12 million new jobs will be added over the next 4 years. That's if Romney just gets out of the way and adds no policy of his own.

    So you're saying Romney claims he can add 15 million? That's only 20% more jobs in the next 4 years than Obama did in his 4 years; which Romney calls a failed recovery led by failed leadership?

    But, if today you're holding Romney accountable for something he said yesterday, you must not have shaken the echaskech hard enough.

    Romney will create an economy that will encourage the creation of more than 20 million jobs in the private sector.

    The first 15 million will take 4 years.

    Many of the 47% will get Real jobs and Start Paying Taxes.

    Obama would keep them poor and on the dole.

    The private sector creates jobs. He has promised to remove government obstacles to businesses which will promote job growth and discourage outsourcing. I knew it would be over the heads of you liberals but this is what he was saying and it will work.

    The government cannot create jobs.

    But the government can improve the environment, that allows the free market to hire more.

    For example if taxes were lowered, it would allow more businesses to hire. But lowering taxes is not the government making more jobs. It is merely the government improving the economic environment.

    The government can create jobs. But the government cannot create wealth. It sucks wealth out of the private sector.

    Since Obama has been in office, 200,000 more employees have been added to the federal payroll. They produce nothing and eat up our tax dollars.

    Try reading the whole thing, Reduce restrictive regulations on businesses, make it easier for small businesses to prosper, tax breaks etc, sounds like a pretty decent plan from a guy that has operated businesses both big and small.

    Now just for fun what was obamas idea???

    No. You misunderstood him. What he was saying is that he GOT THE GOVERNMENT THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY, and the jobs followed. Remove the uncertainty and the heavy hand of government, and just look at what can happen.

    PS - Remove the STUPIDITY and the MISQUOTES, and even better things can happen.

    This is true, the govt. cannot create that many jobs, he said "I will HELP create 15M jobs".

    I know MSNBC is bad, but copy & paste the whole thing.

    When Government is removed from impeding Job Growth you get Jobs..

    Hence Obama has regulated Business heavily in the last 4 years and these are His OWN DOL numbers to prove Romney correct.

    Did you know Obama cut the Bush Numbers in half the first months he was in office by re writing who was counted as unemployed? YUP he sure did… He said to his cronies @ the DOL to only count the New Signers to Unemployment as unemployed...

    So in reality Obama's 7.8 is actually over 15%.. Getting the Message yet America??????? Let’s look at Obama's Purposely skewed Numbers shall we.. Yes we shall...

    So if you want the real numbers you would double these numbers but... Of course you already knew this... Right?????????

    I have kept track of these numbers the Obama DOL has released every Thursday @ 8:50AM every week for the last 37 weeks... Did you know these numbers have Averaged to over 400,000 New Signers to unemployment EVERY WEEK over Obama's entire term? They have that averaged TOTAL number I have listed below as well...

    Sadly this amount of American LOST JOBS EVERY WEEK has become the norm… This needs to end NOW… Or our freedoms will be gone right before our eyes….

    Total...... 12,224,000 New Signers to Unemployment.

    That is….. 12 million 224 thousand jobs lost in the last 37 weeks. Is this Obama’s Legacy? Sharing the Poverty when he says Share the wealth…

    **** For 83 out of the last 84 weeks after these numbers have been released they have been revised to a Higher number… Hmmmmmm… Is this just MORE LIES from the LIARS?….

    Here is what Obama really created………. POVERTY...

    How many “New Signers to Unemployment” have lost their jobs sense Obama’s election?

    The 195 total weeks of the Obama term… that is 167 weeks of America’s New Signers to Unemployment has “averaged” over 400,000 jobs per week plus the last 37 weeks = (191 total) a 3 year + averaged number of New Signers to Unemployment is now around…

    78, 535,000 Americans who have lost their jobs. THAT IS… 78 MILLION 166 THOUSAND New Signers to Unemployment under Obama’s watch……

    This is “WITH a Full 2 YEARS of TOTAL CONTROL of ALL of the Federal Government Law making Process…” So who’s fault is it we have not turned the corner towards Job growth? GW Bush’s???? Ohhhhhhh REALLY???????

    IMO

    i.2^

    Source(s): I have a question for you… Is it time to wake up yet? Your vote on November 6th 2012 will answer this question. You don't like the numbers Obama released? I can't blame you for that... Neither do I...
