  •  The GOP is the party of job creators (0+ / 0-)

    who have not significantly created any U.S. jobs.

    This is true, even though for the last decade the job creators the GOP caters to have managed to wrest every advantage they said they needed to create jobs, from lower to taxes to fewer regulations.

    In reality, GOP leaders and their voters are more supportive of mass firing of workers, than mass hiring of them at living wages with health benefits and secure retirement.

    They are the party that believes humans are expendable and  corporations are people.

    So Rick Santorum's call for the appearance of caring about workers, runs counter to what the GOP leadership and their voters are actually about ever since Reagan was hailed as a hero for breaking the back of Air Traffic controllers more than three decades ago.

    TAMPA, Fla. (KCBS) -– Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running as a pro-small business candidate.

    But KCBS discovered that merchants who normally sell their wares at events like this week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa have been barred from the site by the Romney campaign, which is looking to maximize its own revenues.

    For years at these political conventions, there has been a marketplace set up where merchants sell campaign buttons and all sorts of political memorabilia.

    But those vendors are conspicuously absent this week; instead, there is just an official Romney-Ryan store, a monopoly for the campaign.
