Kudos Kudlow



August 30, 2012 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: MO , R , E

I will give credit where credit is due.  I've knocked Kudlow enough times but I tip my hat off to him tonight. He didn't shill it.  He called it as even I was seeing it, Romney didn't give any "meat" to his plans.  Just saying "I will create 12 million jobs" without telling us HOW is meaningless.  We are to say " Oh OK you said so so it will be true." 

At the outset Romney needs to stop making that "titz" sound when he talks.  It really was annoying as hell. With that aside he just didn't sell me.  He wasn't telling me what he WILL do.  Creating 12 million jobs is no small feat.  Personally I think he needs to sell it through his energy policy since there you can create millions of jobs.  

I recognize the reality that post collapse, any recovery would be slow.  I said it back in 2008 and I say it today.  An industry was basically annhilated (housing).  You don't get a V shaped recovery off that.  You need a catalyst to replace all those unsupportable jobs.  The only catalyst I saw and see is via energy.  Obama may be right eventually in that alternative programs are necessary, however ignoring the bridge to that end was a mistake. Romney needs to push that.

Personally I think both Republicans and Democrats want to shout "USA USA."  Neither gets exclusivity there. But until I hear real specifics instead of rhetoric, I am voting for whoever is the third candidate on the ballot.

Hey lefty,

Easy on the compliments there, some of us were left wondering who the idiot is here.

I think Awallejr makes a good point. Its so easy to say "I will create 12 million jobs!"

I know Romney might share your sentiments abt us, that we all idiots, but we need some more info please. Some of the idiots need to be convinced. 

I agree with Awallejr's sentiment, that we need to vote for 3rd parties. We need to kick these guys that have been alternating in power for last 50 years out. Maybe their replacements will be better, maybe they won't, but at least they will need a few years to reach the levels of corruption these guys have perfected.

Just write in a vote for Ron Paul and have a clear conscious knowing you did the right thing even if you know he can't win. I'm keeping my Ron Paul sticker on my car since like gold and silver it's unappreciated but it is of real value.

i heard neil cavuto tell someone on his show that a vote for ron paul was like a half a vote for obama. i thought to myself that a vote for romney is three quarters of a vote for obama.

Write in mtf00l for President in 2012... (Those are zeros by the way.  Don't want to confuse the Supreme Court).

Then pick your favorite tag line and I'll use it.

"Hope and Change!" or "I'll create n jobs!" or "End the Fed!"

No campaign contributions necessary.  It'll will be a grass roots campaign.
