I hope your entitlements are worth the thousands of jobs lost.

This is just the start. This is the result of your vote. You can be butthurt about the truth all you want (Divine and Lygarrrrr) but this is on you. I am taking it upon myself to inform you of the consequences of your choice. Every day.

You can no longer blame others.
Yes. Cause Obama told those companies to lay people off. Cause he's the boss of all the companies and the world and all the satellites and the moon.

And you know what? This happens all over the world. America's a big country, so of course the numbers are going to seem huge.

And exactly how would Romney have stopped this? If they are laying off people less than a week after the election, then it is clear that they had planned this for a good while before the election took place; it was going to happen anyways no matter who the president ended up being.

Actually, you're wrong, in at least a few of the instances. I'm not digging up every company listed, but the few I recognize on there already stated that, if Obama won re-election, then they were making the cuts to prepare for the increased costs coming up.
So yeah, it actually does have a lot to do with that. And his promise to punish success with higher taxes yet again.

How does it feel to know that this is what you voted for, Democrats? Your vote, your choice, your responsibility.

I hope your entitlements are worth the thousands of jobs lost.

This is just the start. This is the result of your vote. You can be butthurt about the truth all you want (Divine and Lygarrrrr) but this is on you. I am taking it upon myself to inform you of the consequences of your choice. Every day.

You can no longer blame others.


The democrats still blame bush. Obama does not want to do anything to prevent massive lay offs.

So a bunch of rich assholes are being exactly that?
Really sucks that anyone would bother working for them. Hope their poor decisionmaking leads them out of business so that less stupid companies can take their places.
