Romney has run for president for 5 years now and hopefully he is leanring something.

He has to campiagn quietly as he is for big banks, big business, corporations who are people too in a state that drips of conservatism.

He can't offer them jobs as his record is bad there. His plan to put America back to work will take 3-5 years according to his own party so there is no light at the end of that tunnel yet.

He does have to offer a pretty face (that of his wife) and a great hairdo soon to be a Trumpadore. He can campaign professionally as none of the other candidates have been on the presidential trail as long as Mitt.

While the country looks for change Mitt offers the same we have had in a different package.

If Mitt can pull off Iowa, the dominoes will topple for every state. I hope he can do it and the whole nominating process will be over by February. Then he can zero in on Obama. GO MITT!

The truth of the matter is, the American people have learned something in those 5 years - mostly buyer's remorse.

I would add:

Obama has been at it for 3 years and hasn't learned a thing. He will pay the price in a few (long) months.

*'Osama bin Laden Killed: 'Justice Is Done,' President Says' - By DEAN SCHABNER - ABC News - 05/01/2011

'Osama bin Laden, hunted as the mastermind behind the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, has been killed, President Obama announced tonight.'

If you think so...

Pagan - I hate to break the news to you, but it was the US Military, not Obama, who killed OBL. If you insist on giving credit to anyone other than the US Military, be sure you include Bush.

It is interesting, though, the only thing you "hang your hat on" in behalf of Obama is that OBL is gone. Other than that - not much positive to talk about.

(Please don't reproduce your long list of factoids - I've seen them numerous times already - not that I read them, it's just that one has to wade through them to get to the other comments).

So, you do NOT want to give credit to Obama, but rather the military...

and WHILE your giving credit to the military, we should also include George W. Bush...?

It's hard to contradict yourself in the same sentance, but you managed to succeed.

Kind of how Obama 'dosen't have much posotive to talk about'...

AND you don't want me to list my 'factoids.'

*'Last U.S. combat brigade leaves Iraq' - By Rebecca Santana - AP - Published by DSNews - 08/19/10

'Seven years and five months after the U.S.-led invasion, the last American combat brigade was leaving Iraq, well ahead of President Barack Obama's Aug. 31 deadline for ending U.S. combat operations there.'

There's no other post's here Tom.

Can you 'not be bothered?'

Or are you ignoring?

The conservative godfather, Rush Limbaugh, has given Mitt Romney the kiss of death. Romney is a nice gut but he is definitely NOT a conservative. What has Rush Limbaugh done to warrant such such an ego? How dare he compare himself to Mitt Romney? Yes, he is rich and to a lot of people that means worth. If Mitt Romney wants to be elected as President of the United States, he needs to kiss off the likes of Rush Limbaugh. If the Republicans don't want Mitt then he should form a 3rd Party. The time is ripe. Rick Perry, Herman Cain or any of the other Republicans cannot be elected. And if Mitt Romney courts the likes of Rush Limbaugh and blasts the Administration's jobs bill he won't get elected either.
Obama has plenty of areas to attack but the current effort to get workers back to work on needed infrastructure has plenty of support.

Wow! No posts to follow this. Are you in shock? I think I would rather try to change the religion of a Southern evangelical than a Utah conservative or have a rational discussion with a Rush Limbaugh follower.

Romney has a plan and money.

Cain has a plan, but no money.

Perry has no plan, but does have money.

Romney will remain consistent and will win the nomination.
