We should be seeing numbers in the 500,000 jobs created per month. This is way, way off from what should happen in a normal recovery.

The best part, he would be reelected in 2016 in a landslide.

I don't think so, at some point the Romney economy would have to start exploiting child labor and the elderly or sending out press gangs to beat people over the head and lock them into their workplaces to prevent absenteeism. It could get ugly, folks, and it only gets harder with time. Stay-at-home-mothers would face real pressure to contribute and leave their kids unattended.

Well, if Romney invades Iran... Another decade of occupation would open up more than 500,000 military jobs! What could possibly go wrong?

I voted for the magical, but its a better point that job creation has been abysmal since Carter and the demise of proper demand-based government policy.

Combine his 500,000 jobs a month plan with advisor Tim Pawlenty's 5% GDP annual growth plan and, by the end of his second term, poverty will be defined as only being able to wipe your bum with $1 bills.

Interestingly, that situation will also occur if Obama wins re-election. Dollar bills will be so worthless that they'll be the more economical alternative to toilet paper.

I also have a plan that involves turning dollar bills into toilet paper.. but I've no doubt its quite the opposite of the platform of those worthies.

Gosh Darnit!  You beat me to it.  At least mine was self-deprecating though.

Perhaps we'd be so rich we could have ourselves genetically engineered buttless?

Why doesn't Romney vow to create 1,000,000 jobs a month? It's not like he's going to win and have to keep this hilarious promise, so he might as well go for increasingly sillier numbers.

The silly number strategy didn't exactly work for Newt.

I'll use the example of the EPA to show that you're oversimplifying this.

1) This useless government agency employees people. This useless government agency exists because of government. Thus, government created jobs.

2) On the flipside, this useless government agency imposes restrictions on business, making it more difficult for the private sector to create jobs. Thus, if this useless government agency didn't exist, the private sector could create more jobs than it is currently able to create.

Except the EPA is not useless.  Unless you happen to like having rivers catch fire that is.  The EPA is overstepping its mandate by trying to use existing environmental law to clumsily deal with the potential effects of emissions on climate change, but that does not make the EPA useless.

What if you do like fire in rivers? What about the tourism that a "fire and water" interactive art performance could attract?
