Last night (9/23), both Governor Romney and President Obama gave brief interviews to CBS’s “Scott Pelly” on “60 Minutes”. Governor Romney sought to […]

August Unemployment Up in 26 States. But BLS shows Rope-a-Dope AGAIN (updated)

“Creating Jobs” is Counter to Everything the GOP Believes

Share

You already know that Republicans have been “rooting for failure” since the day President Obama took office. Rush Limbaugh took heat for declaring on his radio show just days after Obama’s inauguration that he “hopes Obama fails” to fix the economy, and rather than apologize, he defended his comment and repeated it a second time, making sure […]
