Fortunately, it's Americans voting for President, not those in foreign countries.
They may not care too much for Mitt, but those who count in this election will flock to the polls in November and elect Mitt President to save the nation from economic disaster.
So who really cares what others think?
Besides, when they get to know him they will learn to love him.
Well if - God forbid - he's elected and I'm impressed that would be a FIRST
for a Republican post-1981. I was only ever going to play a low expectations game with President Obama so I'm not that disappointed given the hand he was dealt
I know why U1 is as high as it is. Its because austerity measures - the loss of public sector jobs - have had a detrimental impact on the US labour market and, worse still, at a time when demand for private sector goods and services remain pretty weak
Funny how congressional Republicans are insisting it must be a private sector led recovery because its not the standard to which they applied to their own miserable failure, during the first term of whom, saw the paltry net gain in jobs come from the public sector
- and certainly more empowered consumers of private sector goods and services relative to the unemployed (aye, its hell being out of work this side of the Pond, too, given the pittance we call Job Seekers Allowance; in fact, beyond six months you get nowt if you've savings of more than 16k or a partner earning >7k). Underemployment seems to be becoming a big problem in the UK. Part-time employment is all very well for those who only need (i.e. can afford) to be working part-time. My mother worked part-time through the 1970s
because my father had a well-paid job but she only needed to go full-time in the mid-1980s
because my father had a less well paid job
