of course they do. they know he has less of a chance beating yomama.
I prefer freedom and prosperity to Romney, Perry, or Obama. Who is going to
reduce our spending? Who is going to create jobs?Who is going to quit selling
out to the bankers and being their puppet? Ron Paul.Every other
candidate in this race cares nothing for you and will sell you out and think
nothing of it. The last man who tried to End the Fed was John F. Kennedy and
they had him assasinated.
I think the media and comedians have beat Perry up pretty good over his poor
debate performances. Overall, my impression is that they have been equally fair
to Perry and Romney.
The liberal media prefers Perry over the others? Probably because he is another
Rino sellout who wants to give illegals amnesty and every other entitlement that
they shouldn't get in this country. Just one more reason NOT to vote for Perry.
My first comment was denied so I'll try again. I merely suggested that if the
Deseret News is worried about insufficient coverage of Mitt Romney, I could help
them. Just Google "Mitt Romney+ Deseret News" and there are plenty of
positive stories about Romney. That's not name-calling, that's not obscene or
vulgar, and I didn't inappropriately address any other reader by name. It's
just the way things are.Ron Paul is the only one with a legitimate
complaint about media bias. Your article didn't even mention him in a story
about media bias, when the report showed he received less coverage than all the
other candidates. Denying comments that point this out is only feeding the
Of course the media prefers Perry. Media lives off of sensationalism... and loud
mouth, gun toting, bible thumping Perry is certainly a sensation.Still, if you have a brain in your head you know the nomination can only go to
Romney... as he's the only candidate who has a chance of winning over moderate
voters. When it comes down to election time all good GOP voters are going to
fall in line and vote Republican. It doesn't matter if Mikey Mouse is on the
ticket, they'll vote the party line. Same goes for the Democrats... you know
they're all going to vote B.H.O. So the only chance of winning is to
impress the moderates. These are people who could care less about the social
issues. They don't want to hear about God, Guns and Gay Marriage. Their concern?
"It's the economy, stupid." They'll vote for the man with a plan to
fix the economy, everything else can come later.
I think the Republicans are trying to get more pledges from Mitt Romney but I
don't see him doing this in secrecy. Romney is too much of his own man to get
those who are used to wielding power behind him until they have no other choice.
I don't believe the media prefers Perry but the comedians are having a ball with
The lamestream media are doing all they can to disenfranchise and/or shift
attention from one Republican candidate to another for the next few months.
They would OBVIOUSLY like the Republican candidate to be someone that wouldn't
be able to beat Obama(although I can't imagine who fills that bill).I thought there for a couple of months they were finished with their Obama
cheerleading gig. I was wrong.As soon as Romney is nominated -
watch them "not suggest" by "suggesting" that his mormon
background should NEVER be a problem!
Anti Bush-Obama,I think the reason more people won't back Ron Paul
is two fold. One, because too many conspiracy theorists openly back him. Come
on man, the Kennedy vs Federal Reserve theory has been debunked for quite some
time.Number two, the guy can't put together a concise argument. I
never know what the guy's point is going to be, it gets so muddled with
extraneous and tangential information.He claims he can get rid of
the multi-million word tax code, but it would take him ten million words to tell
us how he would do it.
The media we have is no longer a neutral entity, they are biased for many
reasons and they want to influence the public to vote their way. The only thing Ron Paul will do for us is cut the bottom out of the bag we
have found ourselves in and let us drop out the bottom. They are no longer
investigative news people, but opinion forming people, having nothing to do with
To DeltaFoxtrot | 12:09 p.m. Oct. 17, 2011 Still, if you have a
brain in your head you know the nomination can only go to Romney... as he's the
only candidate who has a chance of winning over moderate voters.-------------------------Actually, the only candidate who has a
chance of winning over moderate voters is Jon Huntsman. Romney has pandered too
much to the far right.
Perry is a flip-flopper, from formerly a Democrat campaigning for Al Gore, to
now a Republican...he will offend with knee-jerk observations and is limited in
experience to Texas culture and economy. Cain is supported by
multi-billionaire brothers Koch, so don't get too excited if he raises some
money, but he is not the man, not his own man...check his AFP ties and who
actually came up with the 999 plan he calls his own...Romney is the
man, the liberal media will twist and spin every direction to defeat him, though
he is America's best hope...so what does that tell you about the media? Romney
is the best choice, period.Ron Paul is a great advisor and advocate,
but too radical, his views should be looked at, adapted, but not adopted.
Reality is your not going to pull American military out of every other
country...Santorum and Bachman, either would make a great VPHuntsman is too sympathetic to China, would hurt America by going too
easy on them, showing him not the champion of America that Romney is. Why won't Americans accept Romney? Its gotta be the Mormon thing.
@DRay "Why won't Americans accept Romney? Its gotta be the Mormon
thing."Or it could be the 'insurance mandate, bank bailout,
pro-choice, pro-life, gun control vs. pro 2nd amendment, "Corporations are
people", governor views vs. Presidential candidate views, 47th in job
creation, made my money laying off workers and shipping jobs overseas' thing.
You would think Deseret news would be different from the mainstream media;
however it is the same. There is an article in the Atlantic Wire about the Pew
study that Jamshid Ghazi Askar should have read before he spouted off. It
shows how the mainstream media has blacked out Ron Paul. Mr. Askar has done
the same. Yellow journalism at its best.The ex governor of Massachusetts
is the same as the governor of Texas, bought and paid for pettifoggers. Ron
Paul is the real deal. He is totally against killing little babies. He is
against killing our young people in wars we have no business being in. How can
you have a war against and idea? His plan will truly reduce the federal budget
and restore our job creating economy that has been going down hill for twenty
years.I would have posted the URL for the article in the Atlantic Wire but
Deseret News does not allow URL postings.Vote RON PAUL
Furry1993Stephen Colbert was recently talking about the Mormon
Presidential Candidates. I loved his classic line where he said: "One of
these guys could be the next president. The other one is Jon Huntsman."
the media picks Perry over Romney???????who do they think will come
4th and 5th now they have identified the 2nd and 3rd place finishers?Pres Obama has laid off 600k government workers so far and if Cain is elected
he can do in the IRS with his short tax form which will cost another 1.2 million
jobs. Soon the size of the government is going to be down to fighting
weight.Cains plan can be fixed and the country can be fiscally
responsible again, the other candidates are just planning to work ths system.
Brother Romney should have quite after the winter Olympics success while he was
ahead. We don't need another George Bush or Obama. We don't need more of the
same. That is what we will get with Brother Romney. Einstein said Insanity
Repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.We don't need more of the same. We need Ron Paul.
No mystery here. Media is about finding the best story. Perry, like another
famous Texan, spouts off at times and just says some dumb things. Much more
interesting than Mitt.In this race, Mitt is John Kerry. Perry is
Howard Dean.Romeny will win because he "looks"
Presidential. Then his wishy-washy stances and many similarities to Obama will
cost him the election. Just as it did Kerry.
Just remember the last election.The "media" raised John McCain
from the dead and made him popular so that he won the GOP primary. This was
calculated to bring a dead fish to face Obama.It worked. Even McCain
realized it about 3-weeks away from the election.This is when he started
backpedaling and making nice with Senate Dems so he would still remain important
in the Senate when he lost.Don't let the "media" pick the
candidate for you! The are mostly left leaning people and they don't have your
best interest at heart.
I don't believe the media most of the time so, this topic is lame.
As I said before the majority/consistency in this forum is pro-Paul, against
anyone else. Interesting, but frightening!
No Wanda, the majority/consistency in this forum is pro-Romney. This is a
Mormon forum ... they want a Mormon leader for the country if they can.
Duh, and the vast majority prefer Christianity to mormonism. What was the point
of this story other then the DNEWS to get the the faithful thier daily dose of
Mitt and rile up the readers?
I seem to recall in the last election that McCain was the media darling, then
when it came down to the general election they threw him under the bus and
propped up an unknown guy. We should be very scheptical of what the medias
hidden agenda is.
@KM,"We should be very scheptical of what the medias hidden
agenda is."And DNews. And LDS.
To join the chorus, of course the media prefer Perry...laregly because he's the
proverbial "good copy." Every time Perry opens his mouth he makes
outrageous and non-sensical comments. He also sounds like a yokel. The media had
a field day with "W" and his swaggering, foot-in-mouth ways. They're
just renewing old times with Perry.
lvalfreYou are from Chicago? Then you know exactly what I'm talking
about.BTW, you ran into Rahm Emanuel lately?
DonO - RightO. Perry makes George W. look like he actually attended the
university he graduated from.
mightymite: Pew did the study, not DN. I'd personally rather hear about it in
any news market than not. What appalls me is that the bigotry of the
evangelicals (not just against Mormons, but also Catholics, Muslims, Jehovah's
Witnesses, and others) gets so much traction without the blink of an eye by the
liberal media. I guess most liberals aren't true believers in liberal ideals,
but just opportunists just like the majority of folks out there. What a
lvalfreI'm a member of the LDS faith. I don't want Harry Reid to
ever be the president and I want him to be voted out of his current office.
What does that say about your theory?
"Study: media prefers Rick Perry to Mitt Romney"And who is
it that claims the media is liberal and leftist?Uh ... wasn't that
the right-wing Republicans and the tea party? Oh ... yeah ... and Fox News.
lavalfreanything in your life positive? why burden yourself reading about
people you can't stand? wow....life must be miserable.
The most interesting duo here is Bachman-Romney. Perry is dead in the water. He
relied too much on good looks and upper body strength. That won't cut it with
the tea party folks. Romney must strike a bargain with her as he is too much of
a gentleman to attack her directly. Both republican party candidates need to
work together to defeat the lame stream media(not DN)and save the country from
This post is directed to all those post here who want the ex governor of
Massachusetts for president. Deseret News is obviously bias toward the ex
governor of Massachusetts they, like all of you, think he is going to get the
nomination and you surly want to be on the winning side. For many reason
mentioned by other post here the ex governor is unfit to serve, especially now.
Electing a person because they look presidential is illogical and immoral
when human lives are at stake. The Churches statement on Political Neutrality
mentions the D&C Section 134 which I recommend your reread and study it out
in your mind because the current government is in the business of taking away
the free exercise of conscience, the right to control property and the
protection of life all of which the ex governor of Massachusetts has ascribed
to in many ways in the past and will do so in the future. Ron Paul is the only
candidate to follow the teaching of the Church when it comes to adhering to
D&C 134. Deseret News want the ex governor because he meets their agenda.
