Romney still wants to be captain of the Titanic?

Jemez Springs, NM

Our challenges aren't solvable by elections. Certainly, we can make things worse, e.g. #43.

South Jordan, UT

I love Mitt Romney! He would have made a wonderful POTUS! The greatest challenge is to unite and bring the GOP together on the same page. Even with all the misgivings of BHO, the dems were united behind him. We lack leadership in this country; I pray to God that the Constitution will stand. All forces on board right now are trying to dismantle it piece by piece!

God bless America!

Here we go again. Hear the circus barker shouting, "Step right up! Step right up! Buy your next President! Buy your next President! Step right up! Bring plenty of money and step right up!"

Cottonwood Heights, UT

To all you critics.....you don't think we are on the Titanic as we speak? And no one is a bigger circus barker than Obama. Look at his actions. He is more interested in creating pain than in solving problems.

Give me a break!

This country would finally be great if Mitt was elected.

Brigham City, UT

Not sure which is worse: "Step right up and buy your next President" or "Step right up and I'll buy your vote"


This country would be great is Men like Mitt Romney would work to bring all of the American People together, instead of promoting divisions. Why can't we be one people? Have we not learned anything from our Ancestors?

President Washington, in his second innagural speech, warned us about a two party system and the dangers of courting them. This will not stand if we continue advocating a two party system, no matter who is President.

The problem is not with the captain, the problem is with the electoric.

We as a people have become too greedy, too immoral, too ignorant, too apathetic for good leaders.

Those with money have a responsibility to not take advantage of those with less money.

We have our priorities upside down. To address challenges, we need to first look to ourselves, second our immediate family, third our extended family, fourth our religion, fifth our neighborhood, sixth our local government, seventh our state government, and last our federal government.

Hopefully, he won't let just any bar tender with the secret service agent helping the Hollywood filming industry make a change and bring hope to our country. Remember, however, the Chicago group uses all types of tactics, invented or will be invented to keep entitlement in the voter's scheme of things.

Even with the words correctly used, the Chicago bunch turn the meaning into something that is not what was said. Bartenders rule in this world of political schemes and ways to invent to make money to pay the IRS taxes from 6 years earlier, for the bar tender.

Grants Pass, OR

Go Romney! The principles he stands for are still the ones that will protect our Constitution and our nation. Because he lost the election does not mean he lost our vote for what is right and good for our country. I am glad he is stepping up to do what he can instead of licking his wounds and letting his/our country down.

Marlborough, MA

This is great news! This gives people ample time to evaluate these "prsidential hopefuls" credentials, accomplishments, and alliances to "donors" before any campaigns ramp up.

Mitt Romney is a great man and a true patriot.

I bet the servers are frisked for cameras! The rich can then plot with brunch and discuss offshore accounts.

Houston, TX

After seeing how the republicans threw Mitt under the bus after the election, there is no one deserves Mitt's support other than Ryan. Especially the Christy and the governor of LA, those two guys not only throwing Mitt under the bus, they also ran him over, back up, and ran him over again, 3 times.

Sandy, UT


Obama...Is the Capt. of the Titanic!

He saw the iceberg and then commanded...... "Full Speed Ahead"!
While the ship sinks, he and Michelle are still eating, drinking and being merry, all on the taxpayers money.

We could have had an experienced Captain. One who had a "proven" record of steering ships through troubled waters. Ward Cleaver...out. Eddie Haskel...in.

Let us all pray for survivors.

America had it's chance for a Red Ferrari and purchased a Yugo, instead.

Someone needs to remind Willard what Einsteins definition of insanity is.

Re Ernest T Bass

"finally great"? You should read some history books my friend.

I feel sorry for all the people in this "great country" who somehow feel we're less than great. My life would be sad too, if I always saw the glass as half empty.

We are a great country. Our diversity and willingness to accept and embrace change has made us such. While some in our country struggle to change and advance the causes of freedom, we're far better then many in the world. Many countries can't even get past the ethnic, racial, or religious differences within their own borders. We have come a long ways in our short history. We are "great" because of it.

Smithfield, UT

To One Old Man -- and you think Clinton and every other president hasn't done this? You have your head in the sand if you don't. Clinton stayed quiet for a year, and then started charging huge amounts of money for lectures, etc. What's the difference in having a forum in Deer Valley to talk politics?

One Vote, better believe other political parties don't allow cameras or recorders! And I bet Bloomberg and Hollywood all have ways to invest their monies abroad. It's amazing how this has been made a "radical point" to many. Do you really believe it is only a certain party?

Bluto -- Obama is definitely captain of the Titanic!

Saint Louis, MO

As a Navy vet who voted for both McCain and Romney, in retrospect, there are plenty of problems with the appraoch by the Republican Party. My ethnic Germanic father and recently deceased Irish mother found plenty to worry about with Mr. Romney even as they voted for him for religious reasons. The party has been painted as the ruling elite with power and privilege by the media. The Democrats have targeted the young and have flaunted their opposition to capitalism as exploitive of various minorities. Once the decision is made by the Supreme Court which has become a political institution in regard to Prop 8 and DOMA, we will see just how bad a shape this country is in from a moral perspective. There has to be some serious thought to the formation of a new political party. The Republicans are fading like the Whigs and the radical socialists have taken over the Democratic Party. Both JFK and RFK were moderate businessmen. That is what the conservatives in both political parties need to focus on and then act accordingly. Hopefully, it will happen before the "snow falls" in 2016 and we repeat another political mess.
