Quote of the Day – Romney knows how people feel about him…

 

This from a Politico interview with Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen:

“I know there are some people who do a very good job acting and pretend they’re something they’re not. … You get what you see. I am who I am. I don’t think everybody likes me.”

Mitt Romney

Well, at least he knows.

Did someone say Romney had outstanding business experience?

He doesn’t seem to know much about the history of labor and the monthly creation of new jobs.

Obama just announced an increase in jobs by 115,000 in April. Romney’s comment:

“We should be seeing numbers in the 500,000 jobs per month,” Mitty said on “Fox & Friends.” “This is way, way, way off from what should happen in a normal recovery.”

It could be that Romney doesn’t know what a “normal recovery” has as monthly jobs growth. During George W. Bush‘s presidency, there was never a single month in which job growth topped 400,000, let alone 500,000, according to Bureau of Labor StatisticsThink Progress pointed out:

“there have only been 16 months since 1939” in which the economy added half a million jobs in one month.

Obama inherited a more severe recession than Bush (and, of course, he inherited it FROM Bush), which meant that he had a greater need for a quick and pronounced recovery. Also, as Bush was dealing with the bursting of the dot.com bubble, September 11th happened, further elongating the timeline for recovery.

And yet, by strictly numerical measures, Obama at this point is doing better than Bush… so somebody should point this out to “Mr. Business”.

Please look at this and respond… It’s time to get serious about Women’s Rights and protecting Planned Parenthood.

Tell “Fox & Friends” to Issue a Correction
“Fox & Friends” found itself on the wrong side of a smear campaign against Planned Parenthood.

In an attempt to disparage Planned Parenthood, one of the hosts of “Fox & Friends” suggested that women who need Pap smears and breast

What? No Breast Exams at Walgreens?

exams could just get them at Walgreens. Huh?

In fact, Walgreens issued a statement clarifying that its stores do not, in fact, offer such services… but “Fox & Friends” hasn’t retracted the lie.

Call on “Fox & Friends” to issue a correction and stop its irresponsible and inaccurate reporting.

Got it?  It’s time to make people realize the truth… and Fox & Friends is a good starting point.

Here’s a stupid quote… would you believe it is from Fox & Friends?

Gee… I sure would.

“The President took a matter of hours to pick a commander in Afghanistan so why is it taking months to plug the leaking oil?”

– Brian Kilmeade Fox and Friends

And these are the people who have the same responsibilities as a US President, no?
