The GOP has damaged the economy. Unemployment extensions, the Bush tax cuts have added billions to the national debt.
This time, Pres Obama need to get it right. LET THE BUSH TAX CUTS EXPIRE! Both party will be responsible for the military budget and entitlement cuts, and the anticipated 'FISCAL CLIFF'.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM THAT EXIST IS; 1.5 million, or 53.6 %, of bachelor's degree-holders under the age of 25 last year were jobless or underemployed, the highest share in at least 11 yrs. In 2000, the share was at a low of 41%, before the dot-com bust erased job gains for college graduates in the telecommunications and IT fields...Out of the 1.5 million who languished in the job market, about half were underemployed, an increase from the previous yr. Today, the unemployment is 7.9%. Getting a college degree, today, discourages smart kids from going to college. Since they can earn the same wages with a Diploma or GED..(STATE EMPLOYMENT COMMISSION HAVE DATA ON JOBS INTERVIEWS, IN WHICH INTERVIEWEE DID NOT MEET THE MIN REQUIREMENTS FOR JOBS).

On the other hand, there are more than 3.6 million unfilled jobs across the country. This is the highest level of job vacancies in nearly 4yrs, and if just half of those jobs were filled, the unemployment rate would fall to 6.5%..Plus, there is new growth in Health Care, due to Obamacare. The U.S. Dept of Labor expects more than 5,500,000 jobs to be formed in healthcare alone, between 2012 and 2020. America should invest more money in fed grants or companies co-op, in order to get those unemployed, underemployed back to work with college degrees, or qualify them for some other high paying job.. Employment re-constructing, will give the educated proper 'on the job training' or 'skill' to land the job, instead of giving unemployed benefits...The Obama admin has also invested in new green jobs, which requires additional training.

There is also a shortage of Class A Truck Drivers. America should invest in Grants for those with Class B license, unemployed, to get Class A Training and License...Again, there are Drafter and industrial Art majors, unemployed, and their skills are out of date. Once again, those that are familiar with blueprints and engineering drawings can be trained to be CNC operators. There are shortages of middle class CNC operators, which requires math aptitude, blueprint reading and programming skills. To grow the middle class, Obama need to INCREASE TAXES ON THE RICH and invest that money in On the Job Training to Non-Multi National Companies.

Prior to the dot-com bust, major company trends indicates less investing in Co-op education, On-the-Job-training and College Summer jobs, and less investment into Univ R & D. Company training and investments give college students the insight into future technological trends, in order to create new businesses and jobs; And to prepare existing American companies for tomorrow.

Who is the real Mitt Romney? If given the chance, would Mitt DEFUND Planned Parenthood or overturn Roe v Wade? Did Mitt really meant, that 47% of American are automatic supporters of Obama because they are dependent on the Govt and don't pay taxes, or was Mitt lying to his GOP Base.?? Does Mitt really has a Tax Policy with math, or a Tax Policy with random numbers that don't add up? Is Mitt a mild mannered Clark Kent, or is Mitt a mentally unstable David Banner? Will Mitt explode on people like Gov Rick Perry when he get angry or can't win an argument, or turn the other cheek?

Why did Mitt son( Tagg), a military dodger and coward, threatened to punch the Pres of the USA? Is Mitt a flip flopper, or a liar? Do Mitt like to hire people or FIRE PEOPLE? Did Mitt bully and cut a homosexual hair, or did Mitt have ROMNESIA? Why didn't Mitt write a book to introduce himself like other Pres candidates? Why did Mitt abuse his dog on the roof of his car for 650 miles? Why did Mitt seal his Juvenile arrest record for destroying a private golf course? Did Mitt really have a binder full of women, or a house full of boys who dodges the military? Why doesn't Mitt show more than 2 yrs of his tax returns, contrary to his father belief? Why did Mitt dodge the Vietnam War with "4 yrs of RELIGION Deferment", and only spent 2 yrs in France, on a Mormon mission?
