    Welch: Obama on right path, but GOP still better

    Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch says President Barack Obama is moving in the right direction on corporate taxes and there's "no question the economy is picking up," but he will still support whoever wins the Republican nomination in November's general election.Mr. Obama is expected to propose lowering corporate tax rates from 35 percent to 28 percent Wednesday, while closing loopholes and ending subsidies to corporations. Appearing on "CBS This Morning," Welch said that Mr. Obama is "clearly" on the right path in terms of corporate tax policy and "as long as they go in this direction, it's all good." Still, he doesn't anticipate anything concrete happening on corporate taxes in an election year. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505263_1...ter/?tag=stack

    Assessing the race for the White House, Welch said that Republicans have taken their eye off ball recently, letting social issues, not the economy, dominate the debate.

    "It's going to depend on who has the best economic program, who, in fact, can assure the American people that they're interested in jobs," he said.
    Which is why Obama will get four more years. Well done GOP. Well done.

    The funny thing is, I don't know why they are pandering to the social conservatives so much. They will never vote for a democrat (just like the extremists on the left will never vote for a republican). Ever. They may whine that you're not pushing agendas that will bring us back to the middle ages, but in the end, they'll get over it and vote for you simply because you're not that illegal alien Obama. The votes you need are those that want jobs, but also enjoy not going to church and don't really give a **** if a woman can get an abortion or not.

    I understand that it's the primaries and that they have to win the party's nomination first, but did they think this through at all? They know they can talk to each other and agree to try not to give Obama so much ammunition for whoever does win, right?

    Couldn't agree more. I picture the Obama campaign team sitting in a room and laughing their *sses off while they write down all this crap the GOP is saying. Obama already has an extremely strong campaign team without being thrown all these talking points. All they are doing is making an already strong team even stronger...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    The GOP are political clown shoes and Obama is the clown. Rick Santorum now has a double digit lead on Romney. I don't know what's worse. Romney sucking as a candidate or Rick Santorum beating him. It's a circus that will only get worse with the election. Which is shaping up to be the biggest pile of donkey dung ever.

    The same monster. In a perfect world the 2 party system would give us an election between Ron Paul and Rocky Anderson.

    Does he really? Well, that's just sad. Really sad. But great for Obama. No way someone as out-of-his mind as Santorum takes the Independent vote...

    What the f*ck is wrong with people? This is a man who has openly admitted to having no qualms with breaking the constitution, as long as it promotes his religious beliefs. This is a man who has shown absolutely no remorse for the environment, no compassion for those less fortunate for himself, and no understanding of other religious viewpoints. This is a man who stands for everything the constitution was meant to protect us from, and he is actually the LEADING candidate to run against Obama? For f*cks sake, what happened to this country? Rational and intelligent people have been replaced by retards with BB guns. Being a conservative was a point of pride post WWII. Now, I'd be goddamn embarrassed to be called one. Things like this is why the Republican party is losing supporters at astonishing rates. Rick ****ing Santorum? Are you ****ing kidding me...?
