AP: US Housing Construction Jumps to 4-year High



Just another indicator that the economy is moving, with how the Construction Industry is moving and. We'll probably see a jump in Economic Growth at the end of the year as a result and something like the American Jobs Act and a 5-10 year investment from the Federal Government as well as Private Sector. To rebuild the country, 100-200B$ a year thats paid for in this venture, would complete a lot of much need work in our Public Infrastructure and put millions of Americans back to. Work rebuilding this country and we would see a big boost in Economic Growth as a result, this is something that the President wants to do, I just wish he would take the time to do it in one of these. Debates, because it would go a long way in laying out for the country what his second term would look like and why he should be reelected and is something that Mitt Romney wouldn't be able to. Counter him, probably call it nothing more then some new big spending program, when its not, its really about Economic Growth, that the Federal Government would invest part in but not actually run the program.

The key moments for President Obama last night and I pointed them out in my blog about the debate. Had to do with Libya, where he took offense to Mitt Romney for claiming that the President didn't recognize the Libya. Attacks for what they were and Candy Crowley correcting Governor Romney on that would be another moment, so the audience could see that Mitt was simply wrong about that. And the 47% remark at the end of the debate, where the President saved his best for last so to speak, saying that Mitt Romney had essentially. Written off half of the country and saying all of these people see themselves as victims and pointed out who are part of the 47%, like people who are currently serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, defeating. Terrorists who would like to attack Americans, Mitt Romney didn't have any positive moments like that in the debate, instead he took all of these punches, without a counter defense, which is how he lost. He took too many big shots.

Slate Magazine: Mitt Romney- 'Binders Full of Women Meme to Take Over The World'

Is Mitt Romney capable of getting through an appearance, debate or otherwise, without making a gaffe. Or maybe these so-called gaffes aren’t gaffes and he actually believes in this, lets say garbage and it just slipped out. Does Mitt even at this point where he’s clearly trailing in big Republican states like Florida, Virginia and Ohio, where he needs to win at least two of those states in order to win the presidency even want to be president? Or is he writing a new book, perhaps political manual on how not to run for president if you want to win. The title of the book actually being, “Mitt Romney’s How Not to Run For President.” Maybe he’s hoping he can get Congress even with a Democratic Senate in it, to repeal the 19th Amendment that guarantees all American women the right to vote. And with that he wouldn’t have to bother campaigning for female voters.

I imagine when it comes to life in general and in business, Mitt Romney is a tall handsome, young-looking for a Baby Boomer, intelligent, good man. But when it comes to politics, he must have slept in when God was handing out political brains. I haven’t seen a national politician this week when it comes to appealing to average voters since George H.W. Bush in 1992. When he didn’t know the price of milk and his own Vice President miss spells potato. And this is probably because President Bush hadn’t been to a grocery store and bought his own groceries in over twenty-years at that point. If I’m a women, (and no I’m not looking for a sex change) am I supposed to feel good about Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women”? Or should I take that as a guy who probably watches too much Cinemax late at night, because he can’t sleep, because from all the coffee he drinks on the campaign trail?

As a presidential candidate, Mitt Romney is a gunslinger who always has his gun pointed at his feet and forgets turn the safety off. I don’t know how the man walks around anymore having shot off so many of his own toes. He barely beats a man who wants to take America back to 1955 in a national time machine where women weren’t supposed to work and perhaps even vote. Where gays were locked in prison cells and mental institutions, as well as closets. That being Rick Santorum of course and is now running against a President who struggles to hit fifty-percent when it comes to his own popularity. With high unemployment and weak economic growth. And Mitt finds himself trailing in several big Republican states that he has to win. I mean is Mitt Romney really all the Republican Party has to offer for president? And is this the best they have?
