Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

So now that Romney doesn't have to be bothered with being President,

I'm sure he will be taking all his accumulated wealth and creating jobs. That is what the wealthy people do with all the money they have from the reduced taxes they pay, right? We're waiting, Mitt.

1. Yes. That's what all wealthy people and corporations do with their accumulated tax windfalls.

2. You do know my post was sarcasm, right?

I wish someone during the campaign would have asked him how many jobs he's created in the last four years.

3. Wouldn't have matter what question they asked

He lied all the time. And they NEVER put him on the spot.

4. The job creators must have tax cuts so that they can create more jobs.

Unfortunately, when the job creators pay zero taxes we will still have 3 to 4% unemployment. To get to 0% unemployment we will need to pay (an as yet unnamed sum) the job creators with tax dollars extracted from the people that they employ.

This makes a lot of sense to me. I am a republican.

6. Actually, now that we all have flushed the toilet, I expect him to file amended tax returns......

.....retroactively for those two years when he actually did pay something, in an effort to impress our common citizens that he pays taxes just like they do.

7. Oh, THANK YOU!

If Romney had actually been able to point to jobs he had created, he would have been a lot more credible.

I am convinced that wealthy people have no interest in creating jobs, and when it actually happens, it's an accident.

We are lucky to have small businesses that create jobs, and companies that choose to manufacture in the states, who also create jobs. And a government that sponsors and pays teachers and first responders, and scientific research, who create jobs.

You have hit on the head one of the reasons I hated Romney. The sheer hypocrisy of his candidacy was the idea that the rich create jobs when he couldn't demonstrate it personally. Oh wait. He employed stable boys, gardeners, housekeepers... sorry, that doesn't count.
