Romney:- Valedictorian at BYU - Baker's scholar at
Harvard (go look it up)- Master's degrees in business and law- enormously successful in private business and now worth between $200
and $300 million (compare this to many of Obama's closest advisers who have
never had to turn a profit or go hungry)- previous executive
leadership experience as a state governor, including Massachusetts' Commander In
Chief of state military forces- put aside partisanship
prejudices/trash-talk by successfully campaigning/winning the governor's seat as
a Republican in a heavily Democrat-controlled state LONG before Scott Brown- turned a loss into one of the few profit-earning Olympics (Salt Lake)
in 2002 - turned Massachusetts' budget from red to black while
governor- volunteer service to community as a church leader for well
over 5 years (Bishop and Stake President)- would give ALL his
Presidential salary ($1.6 million total) back to the American taxpayers if
elected (yes, he's on record as committing to this)- looks, talks
and acts "Presidential"- understands committment (never
divorced)- understands morality (never had an affair)-
understands family (5 kids)- willing to let all of America see his
birth record and school records.Nope, nothing there that America
There is no debate, Perry cannot debate. This is a very noticeable weakness for
Perry and his current downfall will lead to a collapse soon.
Romney's momentum is strong and steady! He is the one GOP candidate that can
beat Obama! More than any election in decades, Americans feel the urgency to
elect a president with principles, experience, and credibility. Clearly, Romney
is right man that can restore our country! Go Romney!
This was as predictable as tomorrow's sunrise. Perry is the proverbial bottle
rocket: Flash at the start, kind of interesting to watch for awhile, rapid
flame-out. IMO, Romney's support is still soft but he's running a brilliant
campaign. His moving back to the front will bring in more money and support. He
keeps this up, he'll be the nominee.
Sorry, but we already had an inarticulate Texan as President, the country needs
something else. And while I don't think George-W was as bad as many folks feel,
I do think his inability to talk with the American people was a HUGE HUGE
HUUUUUGE part of why he is so despised. He simply can't put the problems America
is facing into words that we could get behind.Romney's a great
candidate in this regard.
Perry is for illegal immigration and those who are not "don't have a
heart" according to Perry. But 80% of Americans want the border
controlled. This is the real reason his numbers have dropped, not that he can't
Seems strange to me that President Obama keeps referring to his own proposals as
being inspired by Mitt Romney. We need the real thing and not an imitator. The
Republicans who want Cain or Christie would want anyone who promises less and
less taxes. They don't care about any thing but their money and a strong
military and police force to protect them. Cain would be more attractive to them
if he proposed a 666 plan.
Romney's lead is why the establishment Republicans are pushing the New Jersey
Prediction: Perry's failed Presidential Bid leads to defeat in the next Texas
Gubernatorial Race. I expect the guy is pretty much done.
blah blah blahCain is coming on strong because he actually has a
definite plan, has proven recent success in business and is not having to keep
other politicians happy nor is he indebted (as is Romney and Perry) to big
business and corporate interests. That could make this interesting.A person who has been running for president longer than our current president
has been in office is not really news nor has he come up with a plan that will
help the country.
At least until the Republicans come up with the another annoying "flavor of
From New York Times yesterday:"The Republican who may have the
strongest shot of winning the White House, at least in the eyes of President
Obama and his advisers, is Mitt Romney. Now, if Mr. Romney could only persuade
Republican voters."In 2008, the one the Democrats feared most
as Obama's opponent in the general election was Romney. Let's hope most of the
early primaries will be in January and February. Go Romney!
While the polls are interesting to some extent, I dont put much credence in them
minute by minute. What tells me more are the trends that develop over time.
While Mr. Obamas numbers continue to steadily plummet, Mr. Romneys numbers have
been fairly consistent while his competitors for the Republican nomination are
rocketing up and down and all around. Just out of curiosity when it comes to
elections, is there anyone out there besides me that is really tired of being
stuck choosing between a liberal they dont agree with, and a
pseudo-conservative who just wants to placate the left. I sincerely hope that
whomever attains the Republican nomination is not a RINO. Between the leftys and
the RINO's , it is no wonder our economy is in smithereens.
In terms of presidential elections, I would think it safe to say perry has seen
his 15 minutes of fame...thanks for playing gov!The reality is that
Romney is unequivocally the best GOP contender we have, and the only one who
Will run that sad excuse of an incumbent out of the white house. Romney is the main event. The others are just opening acts.Mitt
