BeverlyThe corrupt violent irresponsible Occupy movement is
embraced by the Democrats and I am supposed to worry about the Tea Party?All you have proven is how extreme and disingenuous the far-left is
Mitt can be elected he just has to separate himself from the president.Were Mitt to say I can solve the federal deficit in 5 years he would be
elected and president O would be speechless. Instead he says he can do it in 30
years, tell me who is excited about that?Were he and Paul Ryan to
man up and take the budget head on they would not even need to count the votes,
they would win by a landslide but the parties and the president are dictating
the direction of the election.Were Mitt to say we can do with 4%
less military for the next 3 years and in 2 years do away with the home owner
tax deduction that would balance the budget. Instead he offers tokens to the
seniors for their medicare and he pulls numbers out of the air about how many
jobs he will create citing reports he knows nothing about.If he
wants to win he can, if he wants to play politics he is out of his league and
each time he talks foreign policy or jobs it shows.
The republican are immoral. They were the party of NO ever since Obama took
office. There is nothing they can say at this point that has ANY validity!
Paradise is not Eden. It is good to see the liberal California government
hasn't forced everyone to be Democrat. California knows about the depths
of debt and how they got there. It is just hard to get out of the trap as
California has learned multiple times. President Obama certainly
has the media on his side proposing everything the President wants as good. I
hope people take a good look at what has happened and know that this President
hasn't done anything that would bring unity and working together. This
President knew what he was getting into before he took office and has blamed
President Bush for everything this President should have corrected. Presidents Carter and Clinton should not be emulated for their policies of
their terms. President Clinton has no integrity and President Carter's
foreign policy was horrendous for the country and the world.
Beverly - good for you. Your vote will make a huge difference. Enjoy $25
Trillion of federal debt at the end of Obama's next four years. That is
exactly what this country needs.
Why did the Republican convention ignore President Bush? Hiding from the past
bad decisions is telling. I think President Clinton was immoral and President
Carter was weak, but they both were respected enough by their party to be
actively involved in the Democratic convention. The past mistakes of
unregulated banks and Wall Street made during the Bush years is not a solution
for the future. I voted for both President Bush senior and second President
Bush twice, but fully recognize that his support of unregulated banking and
unregulated Wall Street took middle class America into the poor house. The lack
of cooperation between congress and the President has only increased my lack of
confidence in the Republican Party. I first voted for Barry Goldwater and I
have voted republican ever since, but this time I'm supporting President
Obama and I hope the Tea Party gets out of the way.
Governor Romney as a moderate needed to bring the GOP and the Tea Party
supporters together with Paul Ryan as the VP candidate. The Tea Party members
are basically in the GOP with an emphasis on basic government and United States
of America Constitutional principles. The independents may have some problems
with the Tea Party trying to be a national party with some of their various
beliefs. However, independents also know they can't afford to have the
current administration and Senate in charge of doing nothing but allowing our
economy and government to spin out of control and do nothing constructive. The people were misled about hope and change from a man that said he had
vast experience of community organizing (not leading) and legislative experience
(not voting all the time) as a junior U.S. Senator from Illinois (Chicago).
When he appointed his cabinet and czars to help him, that didn't lead to a
good situation for the United States.Mitt Romney will lead with
positive results. That doesn't mean that people won't have to cinch
their belts and smile. We can't keep on with a lack of integrity in the
government and spending
Why are my comments not published? Is it because I don't agree with your
positions. Is freedom of the press based on the fact that you own the press?
Can you see the future? Romney will lose. You will get four more years of Obama
followed by at least four years of Hillary Clinton - all because mainstream
America is turned off by the Tea Party and other far right groups. The future
for the Republican party is to find a good moderate position that will not turn
off the majority of Americans. Being forced to follow the ultra right, by
selecting Ryan and agreeing to a platform that is too far right for middle
America, has doomed the Romney campaign. It is like having a crazy uncle who
keeps embarrassing the family.
@ ute alumni"first three comments are totally
unintelligible."Says the poster from a non-existent
municipality. FWIW; I'm not a cheerleader for Willard the insincere.
re: Midwest Mom You can sense the Borg mentality all the way from
the Badger state? I'm impressed.
"Utah is going to vote for Gov. Romney?"Utah is a single
entity? Utah is only one voice, one conscience, one will?I think
not. I hope not."Now it is not common that the voice of the
people desireth anything contrary to that which is right; but it is common for
the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right; therefore this
shall ye observe and make it your law—to do your business by the voice of
the people."(Mosiah 29:26)
Utah Democrats have also engaged in a similar strategy. Last I heard, Obama
supporters, knowing they won't carry Utah, were focusing their phone-bank
efforts on Colorado.
first three comments are totally unintelligible. sounds like the right group for
the empty suit.
Yet, another objective piece on Mitt in the DN. Oh, wait...The GOP
took 5 of every 8 votes in the past 3 general elections. If Willard doesn't
capture at least 3 of every 5 because of his "ties to the state" then
I'll be very shocked.
There is nothing Romney can do to win election as the President. I think he
lost just as soon as he announced his choice for vice president. Just as McCain
lost with his choice of a vice presidential candidate. A moderate vice
presidential candidate would have done more to help Romney rather than the
farrr right wing person he chose. Thee presidency will not be won by the farrr
right. Romney's choice scares the voter4 who is not farrr right.
I'm sure they're very well funded.
