    What do you think we'll get with a Romney Administration, and his fellow Repubs in control again ?

    Consider what the several states with new Repub Governors and legislative leads have brought us from the last voting cycle. Seems to me we went backwards on social issues with virtually no focus on jobs.

    What did the New Repub Congress bring us ? Any serious Job promoting legislation ? or a dwelling on taking us backwards on social issues?

    What did the Repub senators do for Americans ? Any serious Job promoting legislation ? or putting a hault to every effort Obama and the Dems put forward?




    Here's what one young woman said in an interview "I don't appreciate that 50 and 60-year-old men are making decisions for my 20-something-year-old body"


    At Obama's first rally he said "For the last few years, the Republicans who run this Congress have insisted that we go right back to the policies that created this mess in the first place," Obama said. "And now, after a long and spirited primary, Republicans in Congress have found a champion — they have found a nominee for president who has promised to rubber-stamp this agenda if he has the chance."

    What do you think ?

    Let's see

    He'll bring us back the republican economic policy that got us into the current mess we're in now

    Deregulation.... tax reduction for the top 2 percent ... cuts in the programs that are used mainly by the poor and middle class... privatization of healthcare and Social Security ... More Corporate Welfare

    More spending on Defense and the Military Complex where it's out of control already

    More environmental damage

    More legislation against gays and abortion

    That's off the top of my head

    we can't afford another republican in the White House .... look at the damage they've done already

    I think he would bring worldly experience and knowledge on the economic and, more importantly, business front that Obama simply cannot match because he doesn't have the background working in the private sector.

    I also think he will bring dignity to the Presidency (NOT that Obama doesn't) but I feel confident Romney would represent the U.S.A. (as Obama does) in a dignified and proud way.

    I also think Romney would work very hard to be a uniter in congress and really make some tough decisions in order to get congress working together.

    Essentially, I see Romney as a good man and someone who would probably be a fine President if elected.

    Really? 'Cause a lot of us think the he is a man with no character, no central core, no beliefs, just an overweening sense of entitlement ("It's our turn!" shrieks Ann Romney to the crowd), an unlikable personality, with a contempt for the truth that boggles the mind.




    sounds pretty close to the truth to me.

    Since other people in threads about What Obama would bring use hyperbole and scare tactics like: Socialism, 10% unemployment, economic collapse...I'm gonna do the same!!

    What will happen if Romney wins?

    Fascism.
    Mandated Religion for all.
    Gays will be hanged in the streets...but ONLY for sodomy. Love the sinner, not the sin!!

    I get that a lot of you think that of Romney, however I look at him, his fine family, his long marriage, his devout religious beliefs, and I see a man whose character would probably run circles around many of you. You are, however, entitled to your opinion.

    How much character and personality does it take to make millions from buying up company's, firing most of the workers, then selling off the balance of the business to other or foreign businesses in many cases ?

    Its nice to promote his family virtues, but he's only got one family, how many family's income and dreams did he destroy to make his millions then hide it overseas ?


    Any answers to that ? What kind a character does it take to do that kind of work and then be able to sleep at night?.

    How do you ignore such glaring facts from the repub side of US Politics ? Many of you repubs must live in a imaginary bubble impermiable by facts, and if any do get through you go into the 'ignore' gear, because those stubborn facts just don't fit into your Ideology. Apparently many of you won't even read anything outside of your Ideological comfort zone. This is scarry to think that masses of voters are in this group.

    JPtheBITCH saidI grew up in the same town as the Romneys, and there were rumors. Apparently when he was in school, Willard use to stagger home sometimes as late as ten p,m. with coffee on his breath.


    LOL! Oh the horrors!! All I know is that every Mormon I have ever known has been the salt of the earth with extremely solid character. I respect their commitment to their religion and to walking the straight and narrow as best that they can. I think Mitt Romney is arguably one of the squeekiest clean candidates that has come along in many years, regardless of what you may think of his politics.

    Sorry that you have a problem with the free enterprise system that the country was built on. Capitalism is what it is. Some people succeed, others do not -- it's business. Many want to begrudge Mitt Romney because he is a successful businessman. Some businesses succeed, some don't, that's just the way it is.

    Yep Yep !!! its very admirable and squeeky clean to take down companies and the workers lives from those company's for personal gain. Yesireeee !! What an Admirable LIFE WORK OF DESTRUCTION. I'm sure he said a mormon prayer of success before each company he and his cohorts destroyed. Tell us more about what a fine fellow he is.

    And some like Romney succeed at speeding up or insuring the demise of other businesses for personal gain.


    Wouldn't we be better off with a 'builder' rather than a 'destroyer' ?

    Wow, could this me emptier?
    Especially Romney's business experience is so questionable, he should run that if elected, half the US will experience economic growth, the rest will be sent to China to follow their jobs.

    The rest of what Curious said is just empty pablum. Get along with the do nothing congress? I'd rather elect someone who actually does not get along with that band of idiots, right wing zealots and morons.

    Uhhhh, that would be President Obama. We need someone who doesn't just say they want to unite, but who actually has the leadership skills to actually do it.

    Clearly, you must not have a whole lot of business experience. Not all businesses deserve to survive. Some simply fail and need to be eliminated to make others stronger and more profitable. In a perfect world, all business would thrive, and all workers would prosper. However, in reality, things simply do not work that way in a free enterprise system.

    Hopefully back to the years when unemployment wasn't this bad and our country was strong.
    When we had Ronny as president I remember the good times we had in this country. Other countries respected the US. A little fear was good. We had two superpowers the United Staes and Russia. I believe 911 would not have happened if we had a man like him running our great country. Remember 911 was plotted and planned under the Clinton Admin. Another president into celebrity and not the job at hand.

    Looks like China is next if things keep going as they are right now.icon_idea.gif

    You seem to miss the point and the reality of Romney's business:

    Romneys business made him rich from BRINGING ABOUT other business failures, he prodded the failures, he divided and conquered ongoing business to bring about their demise for profit.

    There is a difference in a business failing of its own accord and being brought down by the likes of Romney's business.

    Oh yeah, Romney is the unifier all right. He is going to use his vast personal charm to sway all Democrats.

    except, of course, that he's so utterly loathesome that no one will ever give him the chance.



    He proved he could do this in Massachusetts as Governor, and I have faith he could do the same if he were President. As for Romney being "so utterly loathsome that no one will ever give him a chance", that is YOUR opinion, and not one that everyone shares.

    No, actually it is YOU who is missing the point about what "business" is all about. It's competitive. We live in a free enterprise capitalistic society in which various businesses compete for business in whatever market they are in and it is "survival of the fittest". That's just the way it works. The fact that Mitt Romney has achieved great success at this is not something that should be looked at as a negative. Do successful businessmen succeed at the expense of others? Of course. That's business.

    either way it won't effect my life. There is a VERY good chance you will be calling Mitt Mr. President in 2012.

    So your just really impressed by the success of this guy in the worst predatory of businesses eh ?

    A lot of things are done in business by unscrupious business men who make a lot of money but that doesn't mean that we attach the word success when its illgotten gains. Are you really trying to tell us that all is ok as long as the likes of Romney can make a buck and get away with it ? Your not in the least put back by all those who lost family incomes to make Romney rich ? Are you so enamored with Romney and the system that anything goes ?

    You know if I'm going to pick someone to run my country I don't want them to be taken from a group of businessmen earning their riches at others expense. I wan't someone successfull that left no trail of harm in his wake. Can't you Republicans pick someone more representative of high standards that this guy? Sheesh, you people and especially the christian right seem to be able to justify anything.
