Speaking on Wednesday night to the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, Ryan, 42, raised the question of what the next four years would look like without a change in leadership. "After four years of getting the run-around, America needs a turnaround, and the man for the job is Governor Mitt Romney," he said. Ryan said the first signs of trouble under the Obama administration came with an economic stimulus package that led to more debt but did not fix the economy. "Before the math and the momentum overwhelm us all, we are going to solve this nation's economic problems," he said. "And I'm going to level with you: we don't have that much time." [B]Immigrant roots[/B] Ryan celebrated his Irish immigrant ancestors and small-town values, offering a personal presentation of a politician largely known for sober policy analysis. "We will not duck the tough issues - we will lead," he said. "We will not spend four years blaming others - we will take responsibility. "The work ahead will be hard. These times demand the best of us - all of us - but we can do this." Ryan, who is the chairman of the House of Representatives budget committee, accepted the vice-presidential nomination. In one of the biggest applause lines of the night, he said: "College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life." He pledged that a Romney-Ryan administration would create 12 million American jobs in its first term and cap federal spending at 20 per cent of gross domestic product. [B]Foreign policy criticised[/B] Senator John McCain, addressing the convention on Wednesday, criticised Obama's foreign policy: "We face a choice ... we can choose to follow a declining path that is more dangerous than our past ... or we can choose to renew the foundations of our power and leadership in the world. That's what's at stake in this election." "We are now being tested by an array of threats that are more complex ... more deadly than I can recall in my lifetime," he said. McCain blamed Obama for not taking a stronger role in the conflict in Syria, saying: "Sadly ... for the lonely voices of dissent in Syria ... our president is not being true to our values. Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state, also gave a speech at the convention on Wednesday. "Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will rebuild us at home and inspire us to lead abroad," she said. "They will provide an answer to the question, 'where does America stand?"' Earlier, she criticised Obama's foreign policy in a speech delivered in Ohio state, saying that he "wasn't doing what he had to do to stop the murders in Syria". She called on the US to arm Syrian rebels. Speaking to Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher at the convention, Jason Johnson, a political analyst, said Rice was being "trotted out" by the Republicans to show that the party has foreign policy "backbone".[/quote]
All I see is the same shit that every politician ever says. Empty words.
These Rejoblicans are very far out of job. I wouldn't job for them even if I were jobbed to do so.
Stand-up comedy sure has changed. I don't understand the jokes, but I'm sure a few Republicans will give a chuckle or two.
Dey Rebuilt our jewbs
Wow, talking about jobs huh, well, I got one question for them. What was it... oh right, WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY DOING IN THE LAST 2 YEARS? Forgive me for asking, but weren't their platform in 2010 was about jobs, and what did they do? Also, what will happen when they don't get their way if they win and the Congress shifts back to Democrat control? Yeah, I will believe it when I see it, 12 million in the first term. Empty words.

[QUOTE=fruxodaily;37465990]Dey Rebuilt our jewbs[/QUOTE] I know you all know he was referencing this but it's worth quoting purely because it's probably Paul Ryan's primary audience [video=youtube;768h3Tz4Qik]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=768h3Tz4Qik[/video]

They'll job the job out of job! Job bless Jobmerica!
He's talking a lot, but he's not saying anything.
I think what the actual problem is, is that it isn't that there aren't any jobs...it's that there aren't any jobs that are actually worth pursuing. There are thousands of people who work in shitty jobs in resturaunts paid minimum wage, when they have degrees that could get them into much better jobs. The thing is, alot of the jobs that people used to have are either being outsourced or cut because they need someone with computer experience/can be done by a computer. Technology's been evolving fast, and while companies as a whole seem to keep up with it, a lot of individuals working for them don't. My Mom seriously considered quitting her job because they started using more computer programs to chart patients/organize meds at the hospital, and she couldn't understand how to use them because the classes the company gave were pretty much useless. And then, those jobs are being taken after the less experienced people quit/are fired so that the company can bring in people who know how to work the computer programs, which are few because the larger companies always want someone with experience, but they're few and far between because all of the people with experience don't know how to use computers enough to use them in EVERYTHING, and the people who do are the guys fresh out of college looking for some entry-level positions.

There [B]are[/B] jobs but not good ones. However, in my city, this is changing. We are looking to gain 1k good paying jobs through some careful planning on the city. We're getting 2 shopping malls, a datacenter, and a huge office building.
the word jobs shouldn't be a buzzword like seriously it's like "synergy"
