No doubt, phones will be CHECKED before they enter the room, eh? Avoid that same mistake. No more "fly on the wall" recording.

Too much time campaigning. Not enough time solving the nations ills.

Note the location... Its where the 1% would & do live in Utah.

Voters will get to see the GOP 2016 presumptive nominee Michelle Bachmann.

Conspiracy Central has Michelle arriving for her coronation as the face/voice of the Republican Party.

Michelle can't be bothered, with the House anymore.

When you are the Republican Party's obvious favorite/nominee, duty calls.

How dare the IRS target Mitt!?

This appears to be as much solicitation for Mitt Romney's son's venture capitalist firm as a political gathering. As always, Romney's focus is on making more money. The meeting, closed to the non-wealthy and the press, is another reminder that he is not interested in typical Americans. We are lucky that this plutocrat was not chosen to lead the nation in the 2012 election. The results were 51% (332 electoral votes) for President Barack Obama to 47% (206 electoral votes) for Romney. Voters spoke decisively.

The economy continues to improve apace. Unemployment is decreasing nationwide. Troops have been withdrawn from Iraq and are being withdrawn from Afghanistan. More Americans will have access to health care starting in 2014. None of this would be possible without President Obama.

The Romneys instead of climbing on the roof tops to scream their self proclaimed accolades they should go indoors and find something good to do for a nation and people that has given them so much. With their vast wealth they should be paying something back to the world more than conceit.

Let me untwist a few things from the propaganda followers:

* Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore, Barack Obama, and Harry Reid are all multi-millionares with more money then Mitt Romney. Instead of climbing on the roof tops to scream their self proclaimed accolades they should go indoors and find something good to do for a nation and people that has given them so much. With their vast wealth they should be paying something back to the world more than conceit.

Americans will be paying more for health care starting in 2014, with an IRS which can take your property, garnish your wages, or jail you for not paying. None of this would be possible without President Obama.

We still have 15,000 people in Iraq, and will still have nine military bases in Afghanistan when this so called withdrawal takes place.

Wake up folks!

Someone said: "Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore, Barack Obama, and Harry Reid are all multi-millionares (sic) with more money then Mitt Romney."

None of these people is anywhere near as wealthy as Mitt Romney, who's wealth is estimated to be $250 to $500 million. The President is worth less than $6 million, largely from book sales. Nancy Pelosi's husband is a very wealthy man. As a result, she is credited with being worth $58 million, less than a quarter of Romney's minimum worth. Al Gore? Joined the $200 million club when he sold Current TV for $100 million recently. Harry Reid? Somewhere between $3 million and $10 million, probably the lower. Romney is richer than all these people combined.

The American public never really grasped how rich Romney is. The closest clue may have been the way he wagered $10,000 the way a middle-class person would wager a sawbuck.

Facts matter. We should all respect them.

Bored to the point of THIS!

re: worf

"They're all richer than Romney"...

Once again, thanks for the laugh! You're humor is awesome!

Interloper:

Your info is flawed.

Obama has taken more in just vacation benefits then the total assets of Romney. Fact! And so have the others.

The American public never really grasped how rich Obama, Gore, Pelosi, and Reid are.

I can easily back my statements with facts, and that's why I'm not fooled.

"Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore, Barack Obama, and Harry Reid are all multi-millionares with more money then Mitt Romney. "

Any casual observation of their tax returns would show that Romney has way more wealth than three of them (Gore would be the closest).
