Mayor Reed on Meet the Press is Not Impressed with Paul Ryan as VP Pick

Mayor Reed receives national attention on Meet the Press.

Mayor Kasim Reed, who is a native of Southwest Atlanta, has received national attention from his weekend appearance on Meet the Press when he was left to defend the President's policies while also setting Paul Ryan's record straight.

In the show Peggy Noonan, made an emotional statement that the choice of Paul Ryan as VP was an "admiral choice" and that Ryan is an "admirable man."

David, it's hard for you to accept truth isn't it? Here's a couple of basics for you to ponder. 1. The republican platform is bigoted. And this is coming from a registered party of 87% white Christians. 2. The blacks you identified as racist can not be racist. You can argue they are bigoted, but they can not be racist. Whites control institutional power and control in our country. Thus, only whites can be racist. You've fallen victim to white history and teachings. Finally, ever since Presdent O'Bama has been nominated and finally sworn in, the following has occurred. Gun permits and sales of gun and ammo has reached all time highs. Weapons and ammo is being stockpiled. Why? Messages of fear that has permeated mainstream media includes, blacks now have a liscence to steal with President O'Bama in the WH, they (meaning blacks and Hispanics) are taking our (meaning white) jobs, there is a pending race war in our country, while at the same time weapons and guns are being stockpiled. Finally, the rise of hate groups in our country has dramatically spiked...over 2k and still rising. Wake up dear friend. The cries of "we're taking our country back" has special meaning. You're not very informed. Too bad...we need more informed citizens, regardless of political affiliation.

How does a President create private sector jobs without spending government money? He can't. Jobs are created when demand increases for products and/or services. No demand, no job creation. So the only way a President Romney can really create jobs is to increase government spending. Deregulation won't do it, neither will lower taxes on "job creators". In fact, let's talk about these "job creators" who say they can't afford to increase their capacities to provide their product or service because their taxes are too high: It's call 'incorporating your business'. It cost less than $100 and takes about 15 minutes. I've done it twice! No lawyer needed. Instead of paying taxes on the income of the business as your personal income, pay yourself a salary, let the business use the 10 to 15 tax exemptions you qualify for and lower your tax bill to around 24 percent. Find one or two good loopholes and some write-offs and you could eliminate your entire tax bill completely. Any business owner who doesn't know this deserves to pay high taxes. Education is expensive, but ignorance costs you more.

You need to put the crack pipe down! Regardless of how you feel about Mayor Reed, nobody can claim that his administration has not been willing to take on difficult issues like sewer repair, underfunded pensions, public safety, budgets and more. They certainly have not resolved them all, by any means, but it is partisan foolishness to say that his administration is not taking these things on....
