Who is the real jobs killer -- Obama or Romney?

It's really insulting how stupid obama thinks we all are. Does he actually think we don't remember all of the auto dealerships that were closed down after he bailed out the auto industry? There were THOUSANDS of jobs lost in that fiasco. Does he think we don't remember that he killed the Keystone pipeline for nothing more than political gain? Again THOUSANDS of jobs are associated with that, or would have been.

I'm not stupid. I do remember. I also remember all of the job killing regulations he and the epa have put on coal mining and coal fired power plants. Again, job killers.

obama has the audacity to say that Romney caused the loss of jobs during his time at Bain Capital? obama is like a job killing ninja, the Chuck Norris of unemployment. If you are stupid, and you believe obama, please do us all a favor and hit yourself in the head with a tack hammer. It may knock some sense it to you...

When it comes to the audacity of trope, it is hard to top President obama -- a big time jobs killer.

One of the president’s re-election campaign websites features a new attack ad in which a steelworker brands Mitt Romney as a person “like a vampire” for “destroy[ing] thousands of peoples’ careers,” when Romney was the head of private equity firm Bain Capital.

Steven Rattner, obama’s former economic adviser, says, “I think the ad is unfair…and I don't think there's anything Bain Capital did that they need to be embarrassed about."

What is even more unfair and embarrassing is that obama ignores his own record of putting people out of work.

A recent analysis by economists Timothy Conley and Bill Dupor finds that obama’s $862-billion stimulus, “created/saved approximately 450 thousand state and local government jobs and destroyed/forestalled roughly one million private sector jobs.” That’s a net loss of more than half a million jobs—all from the private sector.

Then there are obama’s unfair and embarrassing boasts about how his bailout of General Motors and Chrysler saved the auto industry. But, as Washington Post columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer has pointed out, “Within the first six months of the bailout, the auto industry lost 140,000 jobs. And three years later it has not recovered the employment level. It’s still minus 20,000. At the same time, one in ten auto dealerships evaporated—were wiped out. We started with 20,000—it’s about 17-and-a-half thousand right now.”

Speaking of 20,000, that’s the number of “direct jobs” said not to be created because obama blocked construction of the Keystone Oil Pipeline from Canada. That estimate comes from TransCanada, the company that wants to build the pipeline, which also projects that the pipeline would create nearly 120,000 “indirect jobs” in industries like restaurants and hotels supporting the construction.
