It's clear as day they have absolutely no plan to create the jobs he's referring to.  He's doing a great job levying tempered put-downs towards Obama, and the white bred fatties in the crowd are eating it up, but he's fuckin lame and I have yet to hear an actual plan.

They're going to create 12 million jobs huh?  How, exactly?

The ONLY thing he's said that I 100% agree with is that to be successful you need to WORK, you need to open that store at 5am, work 7 days, I hate it, it sucks, but it's true.  However, he's offering false hope.  People are who they are, they're either going to bite the bullet, wake up early, work late, struggle, save, be thrifty, work hard, etc...or they're not. 

Part of the problem here in America is that our youth is pretty much this huge mass of stupid entitled brats.  They go to "college" and major in dinosaurs or blogging, incur $100k of debt, and then they're flabbergasted that they have to live at home for the next 10 years as they barista part time.  How the darn is Romney/Ryan gonna fix THAT mess?  And how the darn is it Obama's fault? 

Hard work, luck, that's it.  It's the reason a wretched person can float here over the ocean on a car-door raft and end up running a chain of successful gas stations.  These politicians pointing fingers every which way will never change that.

Complete lack of substance and/or honesty.  A bunch of platitudes and lines.

No doubt.  He's a human.  He's still full of garbage when he says we spent too much under Bush also, all the while he voted for everything.  He'a a career politician.  Spent almost all of his adult life in Washington.  Hardly a surprise he'd be full of garbage.

Right?  I have no loyalty to any party.  If Ryan came out and at least seemed sincere, I would at least listen.

But once he broke out with "you know, my father had a saying...he used to tell me, 'son, you can either be part of the solution, or part of the problem.'"

LOL wtf??  That tired nonsense?  Wow...

Here's some more revolutionary phrases he could've shat out his mouth:

"You know, my dad, he'd come home after a hard day working at the dildo factory, place his steel lunch pail next to mom's cooling apple pies, sit me on his lap and...and he'd say...'son, a penny saved is a penny earned.'  Now let's get out there and change this thing around!"

"My dad and I would play catch out back...and...and he'd stop, look at me and say...'son, never count your chickens before they're hatched.'  Now, I don't know about you all, but I've heard lots of talking from the White House the last four years and no action!  So let's get out there, and change this thing AROUND!"

"I'll never forget when I woke up to find my dad naked in my bed..he...he said 'son, how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?'  Now who's with me on winning this thing?!"

Once Romney gets in office and hopefully the GOP will have a majority in the house and senate, then Romney will undo all the policies that obama has in place.

One of the first things they will do is repeal obama care.

The Romney administration will help corporations and small business expand and expansion means more people will be hired which means the economy will start to recover and less people will be unemployed.

I have heard of businesses wanting to expand right now but because of the policies obama has in place it is in their best interest not to do it because it will hurt their business.

It's kinda like in a sense obama is telling them...no! no! you are already successful and you do not need to expand.

This is a glimpse of the obama's socialist policies and big government flexing their muscles in controlling the masses...not good! we need big government out of the way! they are impeding our progress!

Romney and Ryan in 012!

Nobody is saying that it's all obama's fault but what they are saying is that obama doesn't know how to fix it.

He has had almost 4 yrs. in office but all his record is showing is an increase of the deficit by 5 trillion dollars, there are still tens of millions of people still unemployed, a whole bunch of them are on food stamps which is a result of his failed policies.

If he can't turn around the economy in 4 yrs. with the policies he has now what would make anyone think if he is given another 4 yrs. he will do it in his next term?

No, he has failed and he needs to be replaced.

Romney and Ryan in 012!

I think your bias is also a bit influential.

Decent speech, but certainly not inspiring or memorable. Cliche filled with nary an original line or thought. Ryan is pure cookie cutter. No zest.

Reagan was amazing, no doubt. Obama and Clinton have significantly better oratory skills and charisma and have given many better speeches than the one tonight. They also have a sharp, snarky sense of humor. Ryan seems robotic and canned.

First off drake small business doesnt stand a chance against the corporations, due to all the advantages they have, like being able to go overseas to have their products made.

These clowns say they are going to help corporations expand business, where exactly are they going to do that?  fuckin china or maybe India.

some of you are so brainwashed and clueless to ever see the true picture.

 

First off no President democrat or republican can create jobs.

Corporations create jobs and control our govt. Right now corporations create jobs overseas, not here.  Until the President of our country {democrat or republican} and congress do something to stop this now before it keeps getting worse, our great country is screwed.

If Romney had a plan to stop corporations from doing this, i would be first in line to vote for the guy, but he doesnt.

Some of you go to far with the democrat vs republican thing. It should be about the person and not the party.

And lastly, why does the republican party need to try and humanize Romney?  If a person is doing the right thing all his life, he shouldnt need people trying to humanize him.  That in itself shows what kind of person Romney really is. Hes just a corporate shill, who would take your last buck if he could

wow. this looks like something an 8th grader put together. that is the most simplistic innocently moronic garbage i have read in a long time, and that is really scary because we are here on covers.

there is not one bit of HOW they intend to do any of that.

but who cares, right? anything is better than obama....

People tend to underestimate Joe Biden as a debater .

Ryan is gonna need more than rhetoric on that night.

You can't name a single memorable Obama speech that doesn't contain a gaffe.

Obama's comeback in Virginia was fairly on point......

oh you mean like when ryan blamed our credit downgrade on obama when the rating agency specifically said the downgrade was a result of the republicans refusal to accept any tax increases?

oh you mean like when he said obama did nothing with bowles-simpson when in reality ryan was a key driver in making this fail?

are these the kinds of gaffes you are talking about?

Is S&P a rating agency??

Two reasons given and YOURS isn't one of them.

Nice effort though.

do you even read your own links? 

"To avoid a downgrade, S&P said the United States needed to not only raise the debt ceiling, but also develop a "credible" plan to tackle the nation's long-term debt."

here is a news flash 70iq boy, raising taxes tackles debt problems, republican idiots refuse to raise taxes, republicans drive downgrade of debt.

perhaps there is a covers70iq where intellectually challenged intransigents can have little 6th grade discussions.

now move along junior...the smart guy is talking.
