how often does obama bring up his religion?........... that's what I thought. This election is NOT about religion, it is about the economy and obama's terrible financial policies.

Choose the Right, well that is certainly a stretch!

Sounds like a group encouraging Romney to honestly move to the right - to walk his talk.

Lame slogan. However, our choices for president are:

1) A guy with a proven 30 year history of making unprofitable things profitable

or

2) A guy who is very cool to hangout with and is "almost breakeven" on jobs during his presidency after having spent trillions to fix the problem.

I will be choosing the right. That's why there is nothing that could convince me to vote for Mitt. Mitt acts only to rake in money for himself and his cronies, to the detriment of the people he has to walk all over to get that money, and everyone else can go hang. That is NOT what this country needs.

Choose the Right has an LDS hymn book meaning and a political meaning Romney is trying to distance himself from to capture the ideological center he needs to win. My guess is that Team Romney is grinding its teeth over this one.

"Choose the Right" is certainly catchier than their first choice which was
"If You Could Hie to Kolob."

Are you claiming my border collie is "the left"? As I have said on many occasions, that's for whom I'm planning on voting -- Jillyan B. (for Border) Collie will be my write-in vote.

@Chris B.
"A guy who is very cool to hangout with and is "almost breakeven" on jobs during his presidency after having spent trillions to fix the problem."

Actually Romney said that a new president should get 6-12 months of leeway in order to get their policies in place. That's his excuse for his being 50th in job creation his first year as Governor and then increasing after that. If we apply the 6 month standard to Obama he's actually +3 million private sector jobs. +4 million if we give 12 months of leeway.

@Craig Clark
"My guess is that Team Romney is grinding its teeth over this one."

Absolutely. This group just screams "I'm voting for Mitt because he's Mormon". It's just a good thing that Rafalca isn't a white horse or else it'd probably get worse.

"better than choose the left. keep drinking the obama kool aide"

Be careful about how much you actively inject your religious views into the campaign, or you set yourself up for becoming a target.

Com-mon, anti's----why don't you blame George Bush for the slogan you don't like??? Toooo funny....no matter what he chose you'd find fault with it. How many people really know thing one about the LDS religion, let alone what CTR means?

This is better than "Change you can believe in" which bankrupted the country and kept unemployment way off the charts------but that was George W's fault too, wasn't it? Have you heard Harry's false rant about Mitt not paying taxes? I wonder where is his outrage against Timothy? (Oh, he's a Demo so it's ok I guess.)

(Can't wait to hear the howling in November should Romney win........)

"Toooo funny....no matter what he chose you'd find fault with it."

This wasn't a Romney campaign decision, it's something made by an outside group that supports Romney so he didn't choose this.

You won't have to because he won't. Not that Obama's any better ...

As silly or lame as the slogan is, it is accurate. Has anybody noticed that now the anti-Romney comments are becoming less and less supportive of Obama, but rather simply being anti-Romney? It's because Obama is indeed a poor choice for the upcoming election. Don't buy into the "created jobs" lie. If it weren't a lie, the private sector might actually be doing fine. But it's not.

Romney is the way to go. You may not like him (listening to too many lies from the left), but you have to admit that our best hope for this country is to vote for him.

Would you rather see, choose the wrong?

Chris B, your choice of people to hang with, is a bit odd.
If your going to choose a Demmy to hang with, at least choose Clinton.

Obama, would be like hanging with the kid who can't make a free throw, or get a hot date!

I never liked Romney and I don't like Obama either. I felt Ron Paul had the best ideas to get this country back on track financially and civilly. Romney is just as sketchy to me as Obama and I don't necessarily trust either. Plus, they both seem okay with more violence and wars which I'm completely against. Get our troops home (save lives and gain foreign respect again), cut our expenses substantially (especially give-aways and war ... we'll save trillions there alone almost immediately), give American's their freedoms (gay marriage, marijuana, whatever .... are we a free country or not?).

Am I the only one who feels that the "Spread of Democracy" and "Operation Iraqi Freedom" as we call them are just modern day crusades again from a Christian superpower nation? And you wonder why we're hated!

"Has anybody noticed that now the anti-Romney comments are becoming less and less supportive of Obama, but rather simply being anti-Romney?"

Yes. When GDP grows at 1.5% and unemployment is over 8% for 41 straight months, then you start to hear talk of Romney being a felon, Romney not paying his taxes for 10 years (some guy said) and Romney beating up gay kids.

Here is the fact. Tonight, while the unemployment rate is at 8.3%, while the economy languishes, Barack Obama is at Harvey Weinstein's place in Connecticut for a $35,000 per plate fund raiser. (Most 'working Americans' can afford $35,000 a plate, right?)

I am so sick of the hypocrisy of the American left and the uneducated comments that attempt to make Romney look like he broke the law. There is NO plan from the Democratic Party. Nothing. Can any one of you Obama supporters point to even ONE thing that says another four years is going to make the country and the economy better? Even ONE thing?

I think I prefer the slogan used by an old SLC car dealer - "Come to Zion".
