 I am for job creation, I am not for the government spending where it is not needed, and for keeping people in jobs for which they are not qualified.

Quoting Citygirlk:

So you're against job creation?

Quoting SweetLuci:

 Obama wants to hire 100,000 math and science teachers. I didn't know the president hired teachers. Spend, spend, spend-and who pays for this-taxpayers.  In most areas of the country, the k-12 population has decreased. Many teachers unions are ensuring teachers that can't teach, still stay in the classroom. Ones who are charged and proven to have inappropriate behavior are put in a separate room, to do paperwork or do nothing, and still get full pay. This needs to change. There needs to be more accountability.

 Clearly.

Quoting LucyMom08:

 So, Romney's plan is blame Obama and not put any actual ideas forth?

He reads the news on PBS. NPR is the radio. Sadly for pop culture PBS hires actual journalists to report the news instead of hiring TV personalities to yell about it.

Quoting incognito116:

He works at NPR what do you expect lol???

Quoting NWP:

WTF is up with the moderator?

Because reading and math is a liberal evil

Quoting iluv2read:

 Well, that would mean fewer people to support, so maybe that's Romney's plan? ;) LOL


Quoting Bookwormy:

Romney's wants to get rid of Grover! & he wants to get rid of healthcare. So more people can die & more kids can't read. Woo Hoo!

he could use that excuse for the first year.. but this baby is all his...

The facts, however, are these:

-      In fiscal year 2009 Obama was responsible for adding at most $203 billion to the deficit, which in the end topped $1.4 trillion that year. But Factcheck.org reminds us that "this was just the first of four years of trillion-plus deficits."

-      The last three budgets fall squarely under Obama. And, during that time, the federal government ran up deficits of "$1.3 trillion in 2010, $1.3 trillion in 2011, and about $1.2 trillion in the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30—for a total of nearly $5.2 trillion in deficit spending," also according to Factcheck.org.

Quoting _Kissy_:

Yes because his policies is still effecting the economy

Quoting Jambo4:

oh.. here comes the blame bush....
