About Me

My grandmother, Sarah Taggert Kohr Raulston, widowed with 6 children in 1936, during the Republican gifted Great Depression, always told her grandchildren that she and her children would have starved to death had it not been for FDR and the Democratic Party. I have never forgot her gratitude or failed to heed the following: "It's a mortal sin to vote Republican." I maintain a blog for our local Democrat Party called "Mike's Corner." http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/ Please stop by. My wife Bonny and I maintain the educational website, "International Brotherhood Days," http://www.brotherhooddays.com which is dedicated to the vision and memory of my friend Severt Young Bear Sr. Stop by for a visit.

Obama's Record On Job Creation Is 157,143 Per Month Since 4/2010, - better than any Republican-

Since President Obama's economic policies ended the George W. Bush gifted Great Recession, halted staggering monthly job losses that approached 800,000, and returned the nation to positive job growth in record time he has enjoyed a job creation rate that exceeds the 1st term job creation record of ANY Republican President in history.

Below is a table which shows job creation by President for ALL terms served. Reagan's record in his first term in office was 109,000 per month. Reagan inherited stellar job creation from President Carter and cut it in nearly in half. President Obama inherited the deepest drop in job loss since the Great Depression and has since September of 2010 outperformed every Republican on record.

When examining the record of job creation we must look where President Obama started out to fully understand how far he has taken us as a nation down the road to recovery.

Democratic Record:
Truman +86,500
Kennedy +100,000
Johnson +191,666
Carter +216,666
Clinton +241,666 ----------------------
+174,192 Jobs gained per month

Republican Record:
Eisenhower +36,458
Nixon +117,708
Reagan +167,708
G. H. Bush +52,000
G. W. Bush +19,895
+78,754 Jobs gained per month

30 Willard Romney Lies in a Single Week

Character matters in life. A liar is never to be trusted. Willard Romney lies, a lot, repeatedly, and without shame. He lies about his record. He lies about President Obama's record. He lies about everything. Romney may be waging the single most dishonest campaign for the White House ever.

As Ronald Reagan's spokesman once said, "Repeat a lie three times and it becomes the truth." Karl Rove recently said, "A couple a million dollars of unanswered TV does wonders."

Here is a link to 30 lies Willard told in a single week: http://maddowblog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/06/22/12359704-chronicling-mitts-mendacity-vol-xxiii

You are reading this right. There is nothing wrong with your eyes.
Under Romney's plan, millionaires and billionaires will pay less in taxes while the poor will pay more. On the bright side the middle class would get a few measley crumbs.

Romney is doubling down on the same tax policies that brought us a decade of no job growth, $9.3 trillion in National Debt, and plunged the nation into the second greatest economic free-fall in history.

42 Million Jobs Created Versus 24 million, Yet Another Democratic Economic Success Story


And remember in November, Willard Romney wants to re-institute the George W. Bush economic policies that produced the worst job creation numbers since Herbert Hoover, the second deepest economic downturn since the Republican gifted Great Depression and the worst accumulation of national debt since Ronald Reagan.

Romney is doubling down on the most disastrous economic policy in 70 years. That seems like a bad idea to me.

Where Trickle Down Economics Has Taken Us, -and where it's leading us if Romney wins-

Trickle Down Has Never Worked. Not Once.


It added $9.2 trillion to the national debt. see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/national-debt.html

It's produced less than 1/2 the job growth of Democratic Bubble Up Economic Principle. see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/...p/job-growth.html

It's been in place for 4 of the last 4 recessions including 2 of the 3 greatest economic downturns in our nation's history.see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/history-of-recessions.html

It's produced the greatest income inequality in history. see: http://bureaucountydems.blogspot.com/p/income-inequality-99-versus-1.html

Romney is doubling down on the very economic principles that have all but killed the middle class and swelled the ranks of the poor. We should remember the record of the principles he champions.

Yet More Graphs Showing It's Not Spending, It's Revenues That Are Causing the Problems


The Bush tax give-a-ways to the rich remain today the greatest driver of today's national debt. When Republican's wax indignant about todays deficits and blame "out of control spending," call bullshit. Cause that's what you are hearing.

We are spending less per capita today than at any time since 1954, when the top tax rate was 90%. Reagonomics promised us that lower tax rates on the uber rich would produce rapid job creation and increased revenues. What they produced was a decade of no job growth, unprecedented income inequality, massive deficits, and 4 of the last 4 recessions including 2 of the deepest economic downturns in our nation's history, the Reagan Recession of 1982 and the George W. Bush Great Recession of 2007-2009. Again proving the maxim that only two things grow when Republican economic and tax policies are in effect, unemployment and the national debt.

WILLARD SCISSOR HANDS, -shearing the downtrodden, the unfortunate, the poor, all his entitled life-


"Animal House" character, Douglas Neidermeyer, based on Mitt Romney's Prep School Days

Remember the character Doug Neidermeyer from "Animal House?" Turns out it was based on Mitt Romney. But unlike the character in the movie who went to Vietnam, Romney got a deferment and palled around France with cheese eating surrender monkeys.


Hit on link below to read the article, "Mitt, the prep school sadist." http://www.salon.com/2012/05/10/mitt_the_prep_school_sadist/

Remember as appalling was his behavior was then, the fact he is lying about it now is even more pathetic. Character counts.

Obama's Job Growth Graph, -what a difference 3 years and Democratic economic principles make-


"After the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, our businesses have now created more than 4.2 million new jobs over the past 26 months…But with too many still out of work, we need to do more." -President Obama-

And think how much better the above graph would look if we had even a little cooperation from the other side.

EVERY Democratic President crushes Republican performance on job creation. Only two things grow when a Republican is in the White House, unemployment and the national debt.
