Exactly! Put up 9 Rep ads against 9 Dem ads and you won't learn a thing.

The successful experience of one is his ROIC (return on invested capital) and continuing ROE (return on equity). Any employment gains as a result were secondary and unimportant. In addition it didn't matter where the employment gains came from as long as the financial engineering worked for the investors, its just how private equity works. No success is not a fact, while some success and some failure are arguably facts. Depends on which economic indicator you are measuring.

Fact is the current administration has consistently said that the marginal tax rates at $250K and above will raise if they get their way.

A naive statement made by every candidate for president. They all are going to fix everything before they get the job and then realize the executive can't do squat unless the legislative goes along and the legislative body hasn't gone along for two years. The big failure is ignoring "its the economy stupid" and once you lose this majority in both houses that nothing will be done.

The real problem is that we can have a discussion about what might be needed to move the country ahead, but Honey Boo Boo and Obama Phone Lady vote also, and who knows what floats their boat. I have always felt that an ugly, disabled, proven leader with the answers to all the countries problems still couldn't win the Presidency.
