    I already thought Romney was a douche, and the debate just sealed that deal. "I care about jobs, but not yours, Mr. Lehrer. Your work is not worthy."
    When you owe $16,000,000,000,000, you may have to cut a few things from your past spending habits. In fact, it is damn irresponsible to think any other way. PBS may be one of them. If you were looking for work, Romney, and those of his ilk, would suddenly not be a douche. They are the ones who make things happen in the real world. He didn't sit back and wait for his assistance to roll in and then protest because he had less than the next guy. You dislike Romney for no other reason than he is a rich republican. If he offered you a $100,000 a year job, super guy.

    When did Romney say Lehrer's work was not worthy?

    Saying we're going to fix the deficit by cutting PBS is like saying you can pay off your credit card debt just by making your own coffee instead of buying it from Starbucks. Sure, you'll save some money, but how much good is it really going to do? You have to increase revenues in addition to cutting spending, not just cut spending. Increasing revenues means raising taxes. Taxes suck, but it's the only way a government makes money, and our government needs to make money. But people get entirely too butthurt about taxes for this to be politically viable. Would have been nice for Bush to, you know, fund the two wars we got into, but he didn't, and here we are. Now we have to pay the piper, literally.

    I work in the arts. I could get a corporate job probably, but I love the work I do and I'm paying the bills doing it. I didn't sit back and wait for assistance when I got laid off just before the economy crashed, though I certainly did collect unemployment for a couple months.

    I dislike Romney because, when he was my governor, he instated universal health care, legalized gay marriage, and was pro-choice. And now he's trying to etch-a-sketch that whole thing like LA LA LA, NEVER HAPPENED. His example on 60 Minutes about how the poors can get free health care at the emergency room? Poor people using the ER as primary care and not paying for it was one of his primary reasons FOR his health care policy in MA. I don't like him because he's a slimeball who will believe in anything as long as it offers him some sort of power.

Ryan I don't see him doing see him doing good at all. I see Ryan epic failing.
    If Ryan tells even half as many blatant lies as he's told in the past, and if people actually fact check, the man doesn't stand a chance.

    Right, that makes a lot of sense. Making sure people have jobs boosts the economy, causes people to earn more and therefore pay more taxes... which means the govt can pay off debt. But Republicans don't want 100% employment in the US, because that would be too socialist :-x

    Plus, PBS brings in a LOT of money via donations between shows. PBS is not a money sucker.

    And Mitt wanted to kill Big Bird!
    The single most important thing on Earth, of course. But as we know, Obama enjoys spending time hanging with Hu Jintao. So it makes sense that he borrows from China to pay for Big Bird.
    Should people chill out, and realize that ordinary people also contribute to PBS? Yes they should. The gov. cannot fund everything.

    You will never achieve 100% employment and using that as an argument is stupid. People naturally drop in and out of the job market and then there are those certain % of people who simply cannot or will not work for various reasons. Usually max employment is seen when unemployment is between 3-4%.

    As far as reduction of the deficit, if anyone criticizes Romney's very broad based idea (as laid out the other night) has to be friggin brain dead. How specific can you get in 5 minutes? You can't. He has a plan though. Plus, they must want Obama's last breath to be very soon cause he has buried the deficit in spite of his election lie of actually reducing it. Fuckin laughable.

    One way they are going raise revenue is through new taxes placed on health care coming 1/1/13. Also, the feds just hired or will be hiring 1,000 additional fte auditors to enforce this disaster called Obamcare. And by enforce, I mean fine and fuck with American businesses.

    Because American businesses have an altruistic ideal in mind to make sure their workforce is happy and taken care of while millions of people don't have jobs?

    Proof positive that the GOP should quit trying to take funding from education.

    Lol...good one. Altrustic...fuckin A.

    Proof that people who can't make a point without being overtly obtuse should refrain from even attempting to do so.

    Nah, I just give zero fucks about fruitless debates. I'm not changing your mind, you're not changing mine.
