    There's gotta be one silicon valley prominent guy out there willing to give an inspiring speech. That would speak volumes about what really drives innovation. Not just pandering to tax breaks for the superrich. I am sick of so called entrepreneurs acting like taxes were raised when they haven't been.

    I think the Democrats should have brought in innovators who could put an end to the lie that you need an end to common sense regulation to innovate.

    •  that's a good idea (0+ / 0-)

      We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

      •  no, but it is a symbol (0+ / 0-)

        You dont have time to set up an intro if you get some anonymous innovator from somewhere else.

        I will settle for anyone. THere are a lot of myths surrounding the tax structure and how businesses are actually affected by Obama's policies. Myths so pervasive , even non right wingers are falling for it. I have a lot of friends from Boston who actually fall for the Romney talking points crap about marginal rates and business decision making and these are Duval Patrick voters.
