Romney’s jobs record is a little shaky

The contender for the GOP nomination says he is the man to get Americans back to work. But during his years as governor, Massachusetts ranked among the last in the nation in job creation.

2012 SIREN – OBAMA’S NUMBER: $86 MILLION – The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised a combined $86 million between April and June, blowing past the $60 million goal set by both groups at the start of the fundraising quarter. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina announced the total in a video released before dawn Wednesday, touting the 552,462 donors who contributed and claiming “more grassroots support at this point in the process than any campaign in political history.” “We did this from the bottom up. We didn’t accept one single dollar from Washington lobbyists or special interest PACs,” Messina said. “We have reason to be proud of what we’ve built so far … Your job, my job, our job is to bring more people into this campaign.” Of the $86 million raised, Messina said over $47 million went into the coffers of Obama for America and more than $38 million went to the DNC. The average donation was $69.

MORE – SWAMPING THE FIELD – The $86 million raised for Obama’s reelection easily doubles – and nearly triples – all the major GOP candidates to announce so far, combined. While there are a few Republicans who haven’t shared their numbers, including Michele Bachmann, the group that includes Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman and Newt Gingrich has taken in just $33.1 million. But Messina warns in his video message that the fundraising landscape is still challenging for Democrats, since “GOP outside spending for 2012 could be as much as $500 million.” Watch the full announcement here: http://bit.ly/nvwYIF

John Boehner’s ‘grand bargain’ – with House GOP

Cantor in a Box

In the Monday White House meeting, Cantor proposed cuts to Medicare benefits, but nothing that might entice Democrats. Go learn the definition of “shared sacrifice,” Obama scoffed. He assigned Cantor homework: We are short of the $2.4 trillion goal that will get us past the 2012 elections, find some cuts that Republicans don’t particularly like to put on the table, we’ve already offered you a bunch of cuts Democrats don’t like. You must, Obama said, work to meet us in the middle.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

It’s too bad that John Boehner has apparently decided to be the Speaker of the House Republicans and not the entire House. Boehner also doesn’t have the guts to be the Speaker of the House and not just the Republican majority. President Obama is willing to be the President of the United States of America, not just the Democratic Party side of it. If Boehner was a real “patriot” and truly cared about the nation as much as he claims to, a deal could be made.

How many times have I written in The Freeman Flyer, “Watch out for Eric Cantor laying in the ‘cut’”? 10? 15? 20? This is why Cantor ascends as GOP voice I’ve done so and will continue to do so.

When Mitch “Mushmouth” McConnell says, “I want Barack Obama to be a ‘one-term’ president just like I wanted Bill Clinton to be one and Democrats wanted George W. Bush to be one”., I wish a reporter would say, “Looking back, which one of those two-term presidents was better for the country, Clinton or Bush?”

I sure hope Tim Pawlenty trademarked his old tired line, “I’m an old hockey player so I’ve probably been in more fights than ________” because he sure uses it every chance he gets.

Is Newt “3 Wives So Far” Gingrich still running for president?

FINALLY

Michael Irvin is a blessed man. He is a penitent man. Most of all, Michael Irvin is a redeemed man. May Almighty God bless and keep him all the days of his life.
