It also occurred to me this morning about the 'business' thing and the microcosm of an individual's experiences and macrocosm, the effect of this 'business' model of governing our country as experienced by all us during G W Bush's & co. etc. terms, for example, that a person might say, '........well it's just business....nothing personal.'
Government IS personal to all of us. Understanding how businesses work is great knowledge to have as a president, but it's only a part and there needs to be balance with everything else.

Obama needs to get on his bully pulpit... he needs to be the "bully in chief". We can't afford to fight the 1% dollar for dollar. He needs to find another way and that's it.

My brother just got fired with a trumped up excuse from a guy who spouts his admiration for the gop= tea baggers. Amazingly he was not fired a few years ago when all other managers in this particular place were fired. My brother had the highest profit margin and had several awards for performance from the manufacturers, of which he never heard a peep of even acknowledgement let alone congrats from the boss. While also paring down health care etc. the boss then ups his own take. It's the republicon way. Lift yourself by your own bootstraps, but we will impose fees, not taxes mind you, on those straps and boots and offer many opportunities in the lottos and casinos of your choice after you lose your house as you go through the appeals process for unemployment and oh by the way DON'T GET SICK...!!!. My brother worked around 37 years in his line of work, never been fired before, rarely sick, luckily, and is a really kind hearted person. Guess these attributes are not valued by the right-wingers.
We have a similar ad here addressing Iowa. On the local news TV and newspapers I hear people say we really need Romney's business experience and that's exactly why this ad needs to air ~ A LOT! and variations of this same theme. Shine a big light on exactly what his business was and did to so many Americans and whole communities.
I also hear from people who say how hard Romney worked at his business and how he earned his success......so easy when a person has lots of funds from dear ol' mom & pop. It's especially easy to play at 'work' when you're not struggling to meet a heat bill or worried about all the 'what ifs'........and I still believe the dog on the roof of the car really reveals a lot about that guy. Maybe the memory of Shamus will tip the scales for the undecided~

Mitt Romney is a Jobs Creator...........he just left out the Fact that the Jobs He Creates with his Outsourcing Business Experience in the Real World aren't American jobs, but Overseas jobs...............how is that good for the American Economy???????????????
6/26/2012 3:04:26 PM
Remember how the GOP kept on the coordinated message of how the jobs President Obama was creating through the stimulus were the wrong kind of jobs?? Give them a dose of their own medicine with their own flawed message...........Mitt's Business Experience is the wrong kind of business experience based on the fact that Outsourced Jobs overseas are the wrong kind of jobs..........because the only right kind of job is an American Job!!!!!!!!!!!
The GOP still try to go out & say the stimulus created only Union jobs & Public Jobs.............just a little fact to the GOP & least they are American jobs!!!!
6/26/2012 2:34:29 PM
Mitt Romney will Rig the Economy so the top 1% CEO FAT CAT will win every-time.........even if it means shipping American Jobs overseas..........just like he did when he was at Bain Capital........................sorry Mitt sending American Jobs overseas is bad for America!!!
6/26/2012 2:12:01 PM
Mitt Romney's outsourcing business experience creates a wider gap of income inequality & that is bad for the economy!!!!!!!!!!..........it basically means Bain wins every time "top 1%" & Middle Class America "99%" loses..................the Romney Fix is in!!!!!!!!!!
6/26/2012 2:09:16 PM
Mitt's Business Philosophy is Corporate Profits win...........our American Jobs lose & the economy goes back in the tank.............that failed philosophy leads to bailouts & deficits.......the top one percent win & everybody else loses..............the Romney Fix is in......
6/26/2012 2:06:48 PM
President Obama needs to keep on the message & not back down! Mitt Romney has the wrong kind of business experience for creating American Jobs & growing the American economy...............Mitt Romney is running to be the ‘outsourcer-in-chief’..........Mitt's business philosophy is American jobs come second to Corporate Profits..........if Mitt wins you lose!!!
