Personally, I like Barak Obama. I voted for him in the last election, and I
think he's made some reasonable efforts in a difficult situation.Having said that, I appreciated the LA Times article about Mitt Romney (I did
not read the DN summary). It was well researched, and seemed very unbiased. It
wasn't sure whether it was a good or a bad thing that Romney was so devoted to
the Church, but it pointed out that he has donated more time to his religion
than any other candidate ever. It makes it clear that Romney's religious
beliefs will have an effect on his style--if not substance--as president. I
don't know whether or not I would vote for Romney, but I feel as if I know where
he is coming from, and I like that.
I think Romney is a great man. I haven't met him in person. He hasn't done
anything for me, but knowing how much time, devotion, and work it takes to be a
Bishop, I can tell he is responsible. You have to find efficient people to work
with you. He has that ability. He has been with the same wife for many years. I
see his life and I see a good man, a man of character. A man with values. Some
people may say he flip-flops. I called that being flexible. Things cannot be
black and white all the time. Sometimes you have to consider other factors and
people involved. I have been following his political career since the last
elections. I couldn't vote since I was just a legal resident. But I'm a U.S
citizen now and I hope he gets the nomination. He has my vote already.
As an outsider (non-American) it is baffling to see the surge in Mr Gingrich's
republican support. Do the voters not realize that his nomination would seal
President Obama's re election? A man who captured the dreams and hopes of not
only your nation but indeeed of the entire world (including myself) only to
deliver NOTHING in almost every aspect. However in a general election President
Obama would be a moral giant in comaparison to Newt Gingrich, a man with such
appalling lack of character that was investigated and fined by his own
government for unethical behaviour, who as a matter of public record is kown to
have cheated on his first two wives, who attacked a sitting president for
inmoral behaviour while he himself was having an affair! Who was raised a
Lutheran , converted to born again Christian and then became a Catholic jumping
from creed to creed with his wife d'jour. Please America have more respect for
your great Nation! A more sensible choice is by far Gorvernor Mitt Romney
(although his No Apologies rhetoric is offensive to non americans) His values,
his record his loyalty to family, faith and nation make him the only credible
"While leading the Belmont ward," the story related,
"â¦ he was so dedicated to his church responsibilities that he
wouldn't travel anywhere that kept him from getting back to Boston for the
night, (BYU-Idaho president Kim) Clark said."Counselors have
been known to handle things just as well. Is anyone that indispensable?
I've said a lot of things which you choose not to hear, understand, or
answer.I didn't vote or support George Bush, so his vacations to
Camp David and Texas ranch doesn't excuse BO in my mind.Where did BO
get his money for an Ivy league school and why give up his law license?
Gingrich takes 31 percent of the self-described 'born-again Christian' vote,
which is pretty much in line with his overall vote total.The
"born agains" like to have someone who has changed from wickedness to
accept Jesus. They don't know what to do with someone like Mitt Romney.
'Disgusting we have to pay for his lavish vacations.' - worf | 4:24 p.m. Dec. 9,
2011 W. was on vacation for 1020 days. That's almost x3
years. Great 'character' worf. You said nothing.
Are there other candidates?
This was great to read and the New York Times article also. It really helped me
to understand Romney more and actually helped me to respect who he is more. I
honestly trust his ability to mend the economy, but wish he would not say he
believes in Global Warming being affected by man. I believe we contribute to
pollution, but as for the other, Nature is much bigger and powerful then we
* based on four words. Need context.Why did BO & MO surrender
their law licenses?Who shaped their character?
Charecter?? Saying whatever to be elected is charecter? Flipflopping on
abortion, immigration, takeing both sides of an issue at anytime it is
convienent, or help win an election. I dont think so. Worf;; your fellow texan
George Bush went on more vacations when he was in office than any one in
history. No wonder the country went to heck on his watch DUH!!

dollars---BO (2011) - worf | 4:06 p.m. Dec. 9, 2011 Wait... do we CARE about American jobs now? *'Let Detroit Go

RAMPELL - NY Times - 11/17/08 'In both cases, there would be major
short-term shocks to employment; depending on which scenario you use, a
contraction of the Detroit Three would result in direct and indirect job losses
of 2.5 million to 3 million in 2009.' I realize I gave this example
before, but apparently it bears repeating... under Mitt Romney's
leadership we would have lost 3 MILLION American jobs!
What shaped Obama's character?"MICHAEL MOORE, ON CNN: Well,
"The Washington post" three weeks ago had this investigation and they
said that President Obama has now raised more money from Wall Street and the
banks for this election cycle than all -- than all eight Republicans combined. I
don't want to say that, because if that's the truth, that Wall Street already
has their man and his name is Barack Obama, then we've got a much bigger
problem."Disgusting we have to pay for his lavish vacations. Oh
those wealthy who don't pay their fair share!
Mitt a vast improvement over change and hope--BO will (did):* let
tens of thousands postal workers go bankrupt to save three billion dollars---BO
(2011)* veto Canadian Oil Line, preventing tens of thousands
American jobs--BO (2011)* give billions of dollars to other
countries that could have gone to postal dept-- BO (2011)* tell
Americans to sacrifice than charge them for lavish vacations--BO (2011)* proclaims America as not Christian* proclaims America has fifty
eight states* surrendered his law license* had General Motors
build a new plant in Monterrey Mexico instead here.Thank BO! What
I would think even the religious are starting to get tired of seeing these types
of stores on the Des News every single day.
I, personally, try to stay AWAY from discussions about Mitt Romney's faith. It (Hopefully) shouldn't AFFECT me, right? I choose to
