Romney likes to diss Obama's record of concurrent creation of jobs, saying it's not enough. But has he explained what he would do differently? No.

If Romney is elected, is it our right to expect him to fulfill what he claimed Obama should be doing? How long will that last?

    By opening land for energy exploration. By lightening the new EPA regs that have been passed in the last 3 years that strangle business. By lowering taxes on business owners. By creating a POSITIVE GROWTH ENVIRONMENT which is something this fool doesn't even understand due to NEVER being in BUSINESS. There are many things the gov could do to influence growth and right now they aren't. Intentionally.

    there is more oil production now in the US than before. We have a glut right now and are selling oil abroad. What have we done to strangle businesses? one third of ARRA was tax cuts for businesses or weren't you paying attention?

    You did not read my answer if you are fussing at me.

    On private land. Open fed land. Gas is still too damned high.
    I listed things.
    Sure. Tell it to someone who does not cut the checks for a small business.

    Who knows if Romney will be a good president? We can't see the future but we know what obama has done and in my book he gets a big fat F and that stands for fired.

    12 years of the lowest capital gains rates in over half a century and where are the jobs? Romney's plan cuts demand, increases investment. Everyone in our country knows demand must be increased for prosperity and some know 2 trillion sits on balance sheets waiting to be invested after demand picks up. Romney's plan simply will make things worse. The U.K and Spain did the austere cuts the GOP wants and unemplyment is over 10% in the UK and over 20% in Spain.

    A true fact....... Although the president does not create jobs or erases jobs. He will always be blamed for the lack or abundance of jobs. In truth it's not the presidents job to create jobs. His job is to get the obstacles out of the way (government) and help the private sector take off. barry has been doing nothing but placing obstacles in the path making it harder for the private sector to have the jobs that need being filled.........

    I understood thaat 1/3 of ARRA was pro business cuts. Do you know different?

    The EPA has gone bat poop crazy with new regs that are very expensive to comply with in a time that most businesses simply don't have extra money laying around!! He has passed 43 major regs. 43!! NEW ones.

    The Hidden Tax

    The cost of regulation has often been called a hidden tax. Although the total does not appear anywhere in the federal budget, the multitude of rules, restrictions, and mandates imposes a heavy burden on Americans and the U.S. economy. According to a report recently released by the Small Business Administration, total regulatory costs amount to about $1.75 trillion annually, [1] nearly twice as much as all individual income taxes collected last year.[2]

    Not all regulations are unwarranted, of course. Most Americans would agree on the need for protections against terrorism, although the extent of such rules is certainly subject to debate. Moreover, regulations are not necessarily inconsistent with free-market principles. Some, such as anti-fraud measures, protect the rights of consumers. But there is always a cost. And, for the same reasons that federal spending is reported, so, too, should regulatory costs.

    The average annual cost to businesses under Obama is higher than under his predecessors, the Bloomberg review shows. The increase is estimated to total as little as $100 million or as much as $4.1 billion, or at most three one-hundredths of a percent of the total economy.

    The scope of government regulation has emerged as a major issue in the 2012 presidential race and on Capitol Hill. Republican presidential candidates have accused Obama of stifling job creation by imposing rules on businesses, and House Republicans have vowed to rein in proposed regulations on everything from the environment to health care to banking.

    I haven't heard him say that he would do something that would create 500,000 jobs per month immediately but if he did he was lieing.

    If the President is defeated, I have no doubt there will be some reaction in hiring as business can be more certain about employee insurance. His defeat would also signal lower spending by the federal government which many economists believe helps restore faith in the system.

    It will take, long term changes in our tax system that removes the ability of Congress to grant favors in the tax code. A constitutional ammendment requiring a balanced budget by 2016.

    he said Obama should create that many. So we're holding him to that. How would he create them. So far Romney hasn't said what he would do. He just criticizes Obama.

    Well the idea that President's can just create jobs is mindliess. Presidents can work to make business expansion more likely by reducing taxes or reducing business expense by less regulation.

    President Obama won't do either of those things. Romney will, at least to some extent. Especially in canceling the health care legislation.

    Economists have come out and said the Willard's 4% unemployment isn't possible and there is nothing Willard can do about jobs. The more I read about Europe's austerity measures and what they have done to all the countries over there, I deeply worried about what republicans would do to this country.
