It's a good thing our country didn't need someone with a proven track
record of taking things in bad financial shape and making them in good financial
shape.We're much better off with someone who simply knows how
to give away other's money.
Only educated, well rounded people should be voting.An educated
society wouldn't vote in the kind of leaders we now have.Ignorance is growing, and we may never recover.
Boy will there be a lot of happy people out there.
I saw a post on another thread wherein someone was wishing for a 'Perry and
Palin' 2016. Wow, for all the things one can say about Romney, at least
he's not absurd. Nor, it seems, is he out there enough for what the
republican party has become.
America, you missed the opportunity of the century to elect a man of sound
judgement, sober thinking, and experience. You missed a man who looks beyond
partisan politics to find real solutions. You missed a man with a real plan to
help America become great again. You missed a man who was right on Mali, Iran,
Syria, the Affordable Care Act, Detroit, and much, much more.I'm sad that Mitt Romney has declared that he will not run again, but I
don't blame him. America, you.... we.... missed out.... BIG TIME!
Community Organizer who has never run a business, school, city, or state elected
over the Michael Jordan of economics/business.Awesome!!! Way to go
Chris B: I agree.We have a White House and Capital Building full of
people who keep their lucrative jobs by bribing some people with other
people's money (plus the money from the saps that seem to imagine we will
some day pay them back).
After the awful way many in this Nation and especially the liberal media treated
Romney, I wouldn't blame him for not running again. I voted for him and I
would do it again. But the environment in our nation is more for receiving
entitlements and taking instead of putting in your fair share and working. I
don't know if Mitt Romney should have to put himself in the same situation,
where the liberal media will ridicule him because of his faith, his family and
anything else which is dear to him and take anything good he has ever done and
drag it through the mud with lies and half truths. Do I think Romney should run
again? He is probably the only one who could pull the country out of the
disaster it's in now, but why in the world would he want to? But if he
runs again, I will vote for him again.
I salute him for his effort, and know that he loves our country and wants to
make it a better place for all its citizens. He also has the knowledge, skills,
and most importantly the INTEGRITY to have made major improvements.History will record 2012 as one of the great missed opportunities, and the
event which permanently condemned our country and way of life to decline because
voters chose unwisely.
So many people just can't accept that the President defeated Romney. How
could it happen? Obama was the chosen one, not Romney. Mitt has accepted it.
Many people will probably never accept it nor understand how something so
contrary to what people prophesied happened. But it did happen. If
Mitt can accept it, maybe others can try to digest it.
Which Mitt Romney?
Does anyone wonder, as I do, if it is possible the American people will one day
wake up (when our economy/debt gets so bad that there seems to be no return or
recourse) and clamor for Romney to run again for president? I am thinking of the
example of Great Briton at the start of WWII, when they got behind Winston
Churchill, whose mother was American and father British, and elected an
"unelectable" person as their prime minister because of his
country's need at that time.
"I've had two bites at the apple. Three strikes and you're
out," a relaxed Romney told the overflow crowd...That sounds
like he's talking about giving it one more try! LOL.
Mitt Romney won't run for President again? If he is to be believed, which
is doubtful given his record, all I can say is Thank God! Mitt
would have been a disaster, and would have run the country right down the
toilet. His idea of financial management was/is to bleed a company dry and send
its jobs overseas. Truth and honor aren't in his makeup. It's good
that enough people were well-rounded and observant and educated enough to see
through his etch-a-sketching and his smoke and mirrors to the real person
underneath, recognize his lack, and send him packing. The US dodged a huge
disaster when we avoided having to have him in the White House. Please, Mitt -- don't try to inflict yourself on the country again. We
Romney should learn from Winston Churchill, that a man with talent and vision
should ignore the momentary whiplash of the fickle public and present himself at
the bar of public service. Churchill was repeatedly humiliated, lost office, was
fired from being prime minister and many other ministarial postion but he stayed
in the ring and fought for his cause. Finally the British people sort of woke up
and Churchill saved England and the free world with his character and policies.
Romney should keep running for president. He should stand mighty and
tall right now and decry Obama's policies with voracious clarity.
thinksobama won because more takers than makers voted. your community
organizing boy is doing a great job.

Wow..."Really? I was hoping for Palin/Tebow in 2016. ROFL!??
@Furry,I find it hilarious that you actually suggest Romney would
have been worse than Obama. Look at foreign affairs at what Mr. "Lead from
behind" has done. Isreal is isolated more now than ever before in the post
cold war era with little true US support. The middle east is destablized in a
major way with US credibility at an all time low. We were recently out smarted
by RUSSIA of all countries. Romney was correct on every front, from Russia to
Syria and Egypt. On fiscal matters, there is no debatable position you can take
that puts Obama's track record about Mr. Romneys. We would be out of the
recession and engergy dependent in 5 years. We all understand why he
didn't win. There are no illusions here. He didn't win because he
couldn't mobilize the Republican base, a good portion of which
couldn't come to grips with voting for a cultist mormon, as well as the
great democratic party hand out. Biased greed won out.

there any wonder the US slowing circling the drain?

Mr. Romney..would you care to comment about the seeming hypocrisy of your being
on the Marriott board and drawing what will amount to, with perks, almost 20
million a year, partly earned from money directly drawn from weddings and
receptions of LGBT's all while casting aspersions on marriage rights for
LGBT's? Being part of an organization that pandered to that community long
before it was fashionable to with websites that promoted and catered to gay
marriage. You don't approve of gay marriage, but you don't mind
making a buck off of it? part of which is then payed forward to the Church in
forms of tithing and donations which stands solidly against gay marriage? Would
Jesus approve? or would he chase you from the steps of the temple? A small mom
and pop photography business will run itselt out of existence defending its
right to refuse on religious grounds having to go against their moral beliefs on
the issue and accept the business of LGBT weddings. What about the sale of
pornography on pay for view in Marriott rooms? At what price was your conscience
and morality for sale? Seemingly, $10 the price of a porno film.
I will do a jig down the road with this news. Can you imagine how bad things
would be if he had won? Not only would we have a government shutdown right now,
but a bunch more of American jobs would have been outsourced so as to keep
profits rising for his cronies. And health insurance? Are you kidding? Sorry
but you are on your own there and as long as his friends in the health care
industry get their piece of the exorbitant profits...

Another pity piece on Mitt "The Money Changer" Romney. How original.
Let's honor Romney for his greatest achievement - getting healthcare for
all the citizens of Mass. Lots of people find ways to take in enormous amounts
of money, after all.
If Mitt were to run again. The liberal media team will go out saying he's
wealthy, mean spirited, and cares nothing for the poor. Greedy rich man. Our uneducated country will fall for it, and another liberal takes over.
They can't see the wealthy are the liberals who keep pulling the wool over
their eyes. Sad.
@Tom in CA 4:10 p.m. Oct. 2, 2013 The imperial leader, community

office, and can't hurt us any more.
@majCoug 4:04 p.m. Oct. 2, 2013Ad I find it sad that you bought into
Mitt's smoke and mirrors, one of his many etch-a-sketch positions on the
world. He has never been able to tell a straight story to save his life. In
fact, he wasn't right about anything. Much as I dislike Obama (I wrote in
Jon Huntsman, the only qualified candidate the Republicans fielded in 2012),
Romney would have bee much, much worse. it's highly likely that we would
already be boots-on-the-ground in Iran and Syria, and its not clear how he would
have paid for either attack.Financially, Romney made his money by
bleeding companies dry, outsourcing the company's jobs overseas, and taking
the company into bankruptcy. With one or two exceptions, he didn't build
or grow anything. His record shows that he would do the same to the United
States.By his own words, he showed that he had no concern or
consideration for anyone who was struggling. He cared only about the affluent
to the exception of everyone else.He didn't win because people
recognized him for what he was and is. A disaster.
I like how when Huntsman says the Republicans were wrong to shut down the
gov't over Obamacare he's called a liberal but when Romney does it
@ute alumniThe state with the highest taker/maker ratio (i.e. highest
percent of people among the 47%) is that liberal bastion of Mississippi. In fact
Romney won 8 out of 10 states with the highest percentages of state population
not paying any income tax (Obama won Florida and New Mexico).
I am so glad our president informed all of us to put more air in our tires and
get oil changes as an answer to save money. I can use all those savings to pay
my healthcare premiums.
"We have different tactics as to how to replace it, repeal it, improve
it,"Really? 1 out of 3 maybe. What has the GOP actually
proposed to replace it? What has the GOP actually proposed to improve it?I am not talking about a fly by comment here or there.I am talking
about actual legislation put forth.We hear "repeal and
replace" but we only see attempts at "repeal"
Lee and the Tea Party will kill this country.
Wow. Just Wow.I read all the comments. I find it hilarious that no
one on the right is blasting Romney suggesting that defunding the ACA is a poor
strategy.Many others, even on the right, have said the same thing
and got some pretty harsh treatment.And this"Romney
said he believes global warming is occurring and is human-caused, although he
added that he is not certain to what extent."No criticism? Just
praise for Romney from the right? You all just let that slide on by. Amazing
America was not founded by the hand and whim of human frailty, and it will not
stand under the hand of human frailty. And, America will never fail, despite
Truth is, Mitt Romney lost because he is not a true conservative. Mike Lee is a
true conservative, that is why he won. I for one support you Senator Lee, and if
I lived during the time of the Boston Tea Party, I would have supported them as
well. Mitt's comments show his true stripes.
I am having a hard time digesting the fact that some are still singing the
praises of Obama. He has done an excellent job in wrecking our country. To
begin with: Obamacare. Where is he planning to get the money to pay for all the
subsidies which he promised the people who buy insurance? The Nation is how
many trillions of dollars in debt? We can't even pay the interest on what
we owe, and we are losing our credit rating in the world. This weakens American
credibility. Yet he comes up with this insanity which will make Medicare look
like a model health care insurance compared to Obamacare. He won't even
talk about modifying some of the insane points in it. He refuses to discuss it
and is in a power play with the House. He has to prove that he is king and no
one had better go against him because he will never give in - even if it means
wrecking the country. But this is only one thing and people like Furry 1993 and
Pendergast can't see it. Pity.
Since it was money changers who trashed our economy, I guess it's only
fitting that another money changer (Romney) "fix" it. Romney - the
Yeah, Furry, you're the kind who believed all the hype and stereotyping and
distortions of the left wing media and bought into the liberal lies about
Romney, as if the Country is really doing better the Obama way. You seem to be
the type who rides on the coat tails of the loudest, the slickest, the coolest,
whether they're right or not. Look what's its gotten us for the past
5 years? Fact is, both guys have good and weak points - but we should have
seen enough of Obama's weaknesses in the first four years not to give him
another four. Too many uneducated people voted for a messiah, a deliverer, a
rock star, without ever reading or checking his policies. And with pit bulls
like Pelosi and Reed around to back him up, why worry, eh? I say, let's
try the ACA, and see if it works, and then if not, tweak it, change it, replace
the parts that don't work - before it hurts too many of us long term - but
a shut down is ridiculous! I'm with Romney on that too.
As far right as the current Tea Party has taken the party, Mitt should run for
President again.....as a Democrat with Jon Huntsman on the ticket with him.
For opponents of the ACA, electing Mitt was plan A.
Believes in global warming? What was that recent report of global cooling over
the past 15 years? Was that manmade or made up?From all we can
observe, there is no amount of negotiation with the Democrats that would change
the direction we are headed in health care. If he has a solution, I'd like
to see it proposed to both sides of the aisle in Congress.Oh, by the
way, health care and medical insurance are not the same thing.
The thing I like about what Romney says here is he doesn't disrespect the
other side, point of view or opposite party. But others here, regular posters,
seem to feel the best way to get their idea across is to make arrogant comments,
insinuating that only uneducated people could disagree with their own view
point, that the only people who support the current administration or
"takers"... Warren Buffet I guess being the biggest taker of them
all.It is argument and debate via insults and arrogance. Little
attempt to explain ideas, to express or explain a position, let alone promote an
idea. No, criticism is the extent of their contribution. And one wonders why
our political system, and even to some extent our society is so fragmented. Arrogance and pride... we know where they lead.
Is there anybody out there who still believes in politicians? Not me, but
anybody can do better than 0bama, the solution is to reform the wlfare sysytem
and to monitor fraud. Please do it before is too late.
Miss Mitt Yet?
America choose the socialist state. R-e-d-i-s-t-r-i-b-u-t-i-o-n is now the name
of the game. Some work while others loaf. All is distributed equally. Get
used to it folks. It is the new America. The America I grew up in is "old
hat" and gone forever. Trying to reserect Jeffersons America where you
could raise yourself up to a better life is an excercise in futility. Share and
share alike irrespective of ones accomplishments has arrived and the loafers
will ensure it remains. As for me, I intend to vote with my feet. There exists
several places where the govt. is not telling me I owe $150,000, where taxes are
as they were here 80 years ago, or even lower. Let the "gimmie
generation" reap their reward for insisting "Government" care for
them from cradle to grave; gimmie abortions, gimmie more medical care, gimmie
income, etc. It won't take that much longer.
I find it interesting that "moderate" Republicans are always quick to
criticize the tactics of Mike Lee et al., while the"moderates" have been
completely ineffective at controlling government spending. Remember we had
record deficits under Bush. He just looks a little better because we have a
President now who simply doesn't care about any fiscal contol. The Federal
debt is almost 3 times what it was when Bush took office. In 13 years the
Federal government has spent almost $40, 000 per U.S. citizen more than it has
taken in. The "tea party" crowd like Lee, Paul, Cruz, are the only
grown ups who are willing to risk their political futures to try and stop the
financial train wreck that is on its way. While he has been
incredibly successful in his private financial life, Romney had been a typical
politician changing with the poitical winds. Of course he does not like the the
tea partu approach - he championed and passed a program very similar to Obama
care while Governor in Mass. One that now makes it very hard to get a doctor.
Lets elect a real fiscal conservative.
To Web Geek: Yes we missed an opportunity to elect a man who would have looked
out for the 1% of Americans who take care of each other. We missed an
opportunity to elect a man who would have forgotten about everyday working
people who make $10.00 - $30.00 an hour who he classified as takers and not
givers. We missed an opportunity to elect a man who would have helped businesses
keep the minimum wage low and laid off millions more so they could increase the
share holder value for the owners of stock in those companies. We missed an
opportunity to elect a man who (while holding solid moral values), would have
put billions more into defense spending so we could stick our noses into the
affairs of more countries in the world that want us out of their lives.
I think Mitt Romney is a good man and a leader. I just don't think he was
conservative enough. And I don't like to hear him agreeing to global
warming, which is proven hoax.
Mr Romney may have lost his bid for the presidency(it would not have taken too
much more to win) because of his elitist attitudes (against almost half of the
nation; the despised "47 per cent" of Americans who are too poor to pay
income tax but who pay other taxes).They were shown in his inability
to reach out to conservative supporters of Ron Paul, supporters who might have,
in the election, voted for Mr Romney if he had made any meaningful concession to
them and their honest aspirations. His militarism, his lack of sympathy for
anyone who was not an American and not in his restricted group, his lack of
diplomacy, may well have defeated him. If he repents of these
things and shows it by his words and his works there might be some point in
running again. I wish him well in his life.
Mitt, this is EXACTLY why you didn't beat Obama. You are a soft,
milquetoast politician that people who really care about liberty and a limited
federal government couldn't rally behind.Your ways may have
worked in the 1970s or 60s but no longer will we just stand by and go along to
get along.This is why Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and others are the real
leaders rising up.
Romney's comments are direct evidence why he lost the election.He sounds exactly like Obama!Millions of conservatives stayed home
(the difference in the election) because he did not rouse the base.He became too agreeable with Obama (and still is doing that) and provided no
alternative to the extreme left.Notice how the extreme left here are
fawning over him now, now that he sound like one of them.
Obama's biggest program, the one that he is most dedicated to, is supposed
to be open for enrollment but just isn't ready, and that is after taking
all the employer part out. He can't get the job half done on time.Romney's biggest program was the Olympics, which were behind
schedule and over budget at the point he took over. The Olympics were completely
ready on time, and under budget.Since the democrats loathe success
in any form, and will never vote for a capable person, perhaps we can get them
to do like the small town in Alaska and the one in Mexico, and elect a cat for
president. At least it won't do any harm, like raising the debt 7 trillion,
or starting programs it can't come close to managing. It won't spout
anti-white racist rhetoric in our faces. It wouldn't run up the air force
one bills trying all the best golf courses. It would try to send US people to
die in Syria.It would sit in the white house looking regal, and
manage any mouse problems that might come up. Fluffy for
ModeratorMy comment was not a "duplicate" you did not post it
yet!4th try, revised"Romney said there were plenty of
leaders in the Democratic Party who "care about the country and will do the
right thing" Unlike the Republicans in Congress.Aside from Romney's nightmarish foreign policy ideas, I don't think
a Romney president combined with Democratically controlled House and Senate
would've been too bad. The problem with Obama's tenure isn't
Obama, it's the extremists, authoritarians and authoritarian followers that
make up today's Republican Party. Republicans went after Clinton with
endless investigations and finally impeachment. With Obama they've done
the same. Authoritarians are sore losers. Extremists, "true believers"
are dangerous to a civil society and functioning democracy.
Amazing!12 months ago you were singing the praises of Mitt
Romney.You voted for him.And now Mitt Romney [the namesake of
RObamneycare] one again aggress with global warming, Says the
Tea-Party is out of whack, and agrees that there ARE other was of changing
laws rather extortion.so, now you throw him under your own GOP
Senator Lee and Representative Chaffetz make Utahns look like we are tea party
people without the tea bags or bales.
After all these years of Karl Rove and Big Tent Republicans we are seeing that
the GOP can never compete with the Democrats. The more similar they become the
worse the situation gets.The current situation is really Old GOP money (a
la Deer Valley summit meeting) vs. the kitchen table conservatives who are
thrilled that someone is standing up to the old ways in Washington.Why not
try? Democrat-lite wasn't working.
Wow, I actually liked just about everything that he said! If only we could have
seen this normal Romney during the election. I've said it before on here
and I will say it again, the tea party are political terrorists. If the
Republican party hadn't gotten hijacked by them we would probably have a
Republican president right now and we could repeal Obamacare through normal
processes without having to hold the government and economy hostage. The more
the Republican party lets themselves get taken over by extremists the more they
will continue to loose in the future. Thanks Mike Lee.
@UtahbluedevilI agree 100%. Like I commented yesterday, if I ever
forget why I left the Republican party I just have to come to KSL or the DN and
read the comment boards. Ironically these same people are doing more harm than
good. If the right would have focused on coming up with solutions and
strengthening their party from 2008-2012, instead of the constant whining about
Obama we would probably have a Republican president right now.
For all the people out there who think Mitt is wrong, please read anti-ACA
Republican Justin Holbrook's editorial in the Christian Science Monitor. He
has it exactly right. Obamacare isn't an existential crisis to America. The
tea party is.And as for Mitt running again, silly idea. There's
no way the Republican Party would ever again nominate a faux conservative. They
will nominate Rand Paul or Paul Ryan or, heaven forbid, Ted Cruz. They will then
lose the final election by 30 percentage points. They must get more extreme
before they will see the light. That is, of course, if they don't destroy
the country before 2016. Odds on that? Anyone's guess.
re: UtahBlueDevil"Arrogance and pride... we know where they
lead."Where? My guess. A college Football game in Provo.
Hmmm.... more go along to get along philosophy? Hey... it works every time
right?We finally have people taking a stand, THANK HEAVENS! And we see
others who want to 'reach across the isle' and kick the can down the
road. Nice to see who you SHOULDN'T support!Mitt did NOT win the
election because he did not have a sound message. His health care plan was
the same as BOs.He had no support outside of Utah, his message was weak at
best.He thinks the Federal Reserve is doing a fine job!He needs a
lawyer to help him define the Constitution, per his first debate.He felt
service to the country was represented by his son's helping him get
elected, can you say out of touch? On this and many other issues. He
doesn't seem to mind putting your children on the front line.There is
more, but why bother. I am afraid the out come will be the same no matter
how many times he runs.
Mr. Romney, I am bitterly disappointed in you! Once again you prove why you
weren't elected President. That reason is that you are not much more than
a so-called conservative democrat. Senators Lee, Cruz, and Rand are doing more
to defend and protect the foundation principles of this country than you have
ever done! If you had been a true conservative, you would be sitting in the
White House, not the Great Usurper! So, take it from a Tea Party member, we
don't need or want any more advice from establishment Republicans who would
compromise away all that is correct and right just so that something can get
done. We want men and women who will fight for the truth even if it means
losing everything! Sorry to say Mr. Romney but you don't qualify!
He should have taken on the tea party one year ago.
A people dumfounded by government schools, and plagued with a bias liberal
media, has led to the voting in of our current leaders.Our country
has become dependent on a government in debt $100,000 for every second of six
years.What's going to happen when health care, and other
benefits can't be paid? Are we going let our country be
destroyed before finding quality leaders?
Nothing one can negatively say will diminish of take away the sterling qualities
and manly attributes of Mitt Romney. I said it before and will say it again
America shot itself in the foot the first time Mitt was not elected president
and shot itself in the head when he was not elected the second time he ran for
Romney would have been better than what we have. However, I don't think
that Romney - while he is an honorable and good man - is committed to principles
that are authentically conservative. He would not have been a champion of
conservative or libertarian thought and values - he just doesn't think that
way. Republicans have evolved into the party of compromise - rather than
champions of principles - which is something that people who are generally
open-minded lean to.In a republican democracy we get what we
support. In a capitalistic society, we generally reap what we sow, so long as
we are accountable for our choices. I am grateful for the system, while the
minds of the majority are giving me pause for concern. The Republicans are
having some difficulty finding their purpose and allowing a true leader
dedicated to conservative ideals to come forward and lead.
The fact that some of you cannot tell the difference between Romney and Obama,
only demonstrates how completely blind and indoctrinated you are to your own
personal ideaologies. It's a scorched earth approach, if I
can't have it my way I'd rather see the whole world burn. Romney was a
great alternative to the liberal extreme, but because of you malcontent, we are
all just collateral damage in your ideaology war.It's time to
stop embracing the mindset of terrorists. Stop anarchy. Stop destroying
everything when you don't get one thing you want. You're losing ground
by engaging in these sorts of destructive tactics.
Romney may have been better than what we have now, but by trying to placate the
tea party crowd who wouldn't support him anyway cost him the election. I
would have voted for the Governor of Massachusetts, the 2002 Olympic Chairman in
a New York minute. I was not going to vote for the guy that had to pander to
the tea party. I am not a fan of President Obama, but I am less a fan of the
tea party. They are they greatest danger to the country at this time.
Mr. Romney is a good man who was not elected. If I had heard his comments on
global warming, and the other issues he is speaking of here, I may have voted
for him. However, he would have been held hostage by the extreme fringe of the
GOP. The Teapublicans make demands of the majority of voters and hold their
(GOP) leaders hostage. The last election most certainly signaled that the
majority of the voters want the AFC act, known as Obama care. Ten million
citizens who are uninsured, will have insurance by the end of the year. They
will also pump billions of dollars into the insurance system through their
premiums. A healthy society is good for all of us.
This man can still be our president in 2016! Yes, he has said he wouldn't
run again because that is all he can say. If he were to even hint he was
thinking of a final run, he would get it from both sides. The press would be all
over him. I think he's doing exactly what he needs to do to leave the
option open to him... keeping the press at bay but at the same time staying in
the press and showing his MUCH NEEDED leadership role within the party.
Mitt Romney can be president in 2016! Join the movement!facebook dot
Of course Romney didn't agree with the GOP's tactics. Obamacare is his
invention and he doesn't want to see it abolished. Romney and Obamas only
point of disagreement was their party name. Yes Utah Conservatives continue to
bill him as the "Next George Washington" when he is nothing more than an
Obamaclone. Utah Republicans love their socialism and Obamacare if a guy like
LIKE Romney did it, which he would've if he cot elected.
Romney invented Obamacare while he was Governor of Massachusets.
Utah Republicans expected Mitt Romney, the inventor of Obamacare, to repeal
Obamacare. That's hilarious.
Lucky for the LDS church he didn't make it. Could be that parts of the
media might have then taken a much closer in depth published look at his
"Since the democrats loathe success in any form, and will never vote for a
capable person, "I suppose that you have absolutely no idea how
ludicrous that statement is.
Anti Bush-ObamaWashington, DCRomney invented Obamacare while he was
Governor of Massachusets.Really??? The Mass program worked from the
day it rolled out.And do you think Romney invented Obama too? Ludicrous!
Joey5"Lucky for the LDS church he didn't make it. Could be
that parts of the media might have then taken a much closer in depth published
look at his beliefs."I don't think that there is any belief
Romney's church that would be anywhere near as alarming as the teachings of
Obama's favorite church under his favorite pastor, Jeremiah Wright. But
then the media's job was to cover Obama, and scourge any of his opponents.
That would be the real fear.

said. "And the one that lights their hair on fire is the one that gets on
the evening news."Well said. Mitt just provided the recipe four
our current state of affairs... Leadership, and in this case the lack thereof.
@FurryYou speak of "smoke and mirrors" and not being fooled
in believing in the wrong Romney. All your jargon is just regurgitation of the
liberal pundits, near word for word. You have been deceived and have fallen
victim to the deception of the left. You are a prime example of why the left
uses its scare tactics today to sway the ignorant. Romney never said he
didn't care about the 47%. He said that he couldn't focus his message
to the 47% because they were unreachable, dependent on the governement for food
and for thought. You are one of the 47%.
the dream to have mitt romney as our commander and chief is not going to happen.
the gadianton warriors are winning the battles right now but they will not win
the war. honor and honesty is not what the deep pocket politicians want and what
the blinded voters want. i am grateful that mitt did take the chance. he has my
@majCoug:"He didn't win because he couldn't mobilize the
Republican base..."Not even close...He didn't
win because he didn't understand a basic principle about politicians... you
gotta promise the voters lots of free stuff and handouts... like Obamafones and
free healthcare. You also need to capture the votes of the tens of millions of
illegal immigrants ... not the illegals themselves but their citizen friends and
relatives cheering them on.And you have to tell alotta lies about
what you're against... like a huge national debt even thou you plan to
forget or totally ignore what you said.Mitt couldn't do that.
He's to ethical and honest."...as the great democratic
party hand out. Biased greed won out."OK. I guess you got it
@Anti Bush-Obama:"Romney invented Obamacare while he was Governor of
Massachusetts."Government healthcare is a prerogative of the
states, not the federal government. Keep that in mind.
Thank goodness that the people who still support Romney do not represent the
majority of the country. I find great offense to referring to Obama as the
"organizing boy." I find that very racist. I live in Washington state
where pot is legal and I do not use it. There are a lot of people who use it
for medicinal purposes. Romney lost. Get over it. I was born and raised in
Utah, and I am much better off living in a blue state such as Washington.
@ Web Geek - Lehi, UT - "America, you missed the opportunity of the century
to elect a man of sound judgement, sober thinking, and experience. You missed a
man who looks beyond partisan politics to find real solutions. You missed a man
with a real plan to help America become great again. You missed a man who was
right on Mali, Iran, Syria, the Affordable Care Act, Detroit, and much, much
more. I'm sad that Mitt Romney has declared that he will not run again, but
I don't blame him. America, you.... we.... missed out.... BIG TIME!"If I could give you a thousand "likes", I would.I
was initially a McCain fan in 2007 (during the run-up to the 2008 election).
Then I heard Romney speak in Houston, TX in December 2007 in his "Faith in
America" speech.That guy knocked it OUT of the park!Over the next 4 1/2 years I found out 28 (TWENTY EIGHT!) qualifications Romney
had to be President, ALL from non-Mormon sources. That guy was THE most
qualified President for the problems America had.What a disgusting
plight we put ourselves in by not electing Romney....How long, Lord,
@majCoug 1:50 p.m. Oct. 3, 2013"Smoke and mirrors" is a term
I have heard since my childhood (I am a woman in her 60s). It refers to the
obfuscation tactics used by stage magicians to divert attention from what they
are really doing to what they want people to think they are doing. That term
has been around for a very long time, and is not unique to the political world.
Are you saying I shouldn't use common terms because others use the same
terms?I'm not a member of the "left" -- I'm a
moderate, mainstream Republican -- and I'm not influenced by anyone.
I'm a trained political scientist and lawyer who does her own research from
original sources and evaluates everything I find, from all parts of the
political spectrum, in a very unbiased way. That includes watching the entirety
of the meeting from which the 47% comment comes. Mitt tried to etch-a-sketch
his comment, but the comment in its "surroundings" shows exactly what he
things -- he doesn't give a fig about anyone who is struggling.Your comment that I'm one of the 47% is hilarious. Thanks for a really
good belly laugh.
All talk, and yet still no vision, no proposals, no substance. It is absolutely
Since he never had a plan, he defaulted to the radical tea party and hired
radical conservative advisors. If he went more Huntsman moderate he may have
won. The first tea party huge loss preceding the current one.
It is possible that a scandal item announced on local leftwing radio stations
here in Houston (if repaeted elsewhere,) may have had something to do with
Romney's loss.A specific commentator reported that Romeny,
along with investment partners, bought a portion of bankrupt GM that was
essential to automobile production in the U.S., and then used it as leverage to
get concessions before announcing that it would move the manufacturing overseas.
I'm not repeating any more details because I could not confirm this story
from any other source. But it looked like just the kind of excuse an
independent voter might need to justify voting for Obama.
Mitt, my father Lowell knew your father. I would like to meet you, there are
things that have been happening here I need to talk to you about.
Remember Julius Caesar? Mitt is playing the part of Mark Anthony. Those who
don't remember history....
Romney was defeated by false narratives inserted by the Main Stream media. The
first being that Mitt was a rich, corporate raider unable to connect with the
common person. The second was that Obama would unite the country and was not an
extreme partisan but a moderate. These two false narratives repeated often
enough and the willingness of Obama's minions to use the IRS,Doj,Fec for
power and influence to target conservative groups so they could not get the vote
out was effective in electing Obama. Romney was the candidate of the common man,
who deeply cared about our country and was committed to creating jobs and
bolster our economy. Obama was a deeply partisan community organizer without
experience or desire to accomplish anything but doubledown on leftists causes
and implement socialized medicine and other leftist causes. We were duped big
time by these false narratives and the $17 trillion debt and stagnant economy is
what we have. Voters made a bad choice and we have to live with it.
I would like to know his reasons about Global warming. I still believe it is a
bad scientific information.
Now Mitt is too liberal for Utah.
re: one vote "Now Mitt is too liberal for Utah."Or are
Utahns fickle? Maybe they just have short attention spans that are now
captivated by Lee?
Yawns* Damage Control, the GOP Big Govt Majority getting real good at playing
good guy after they stage their true intentions anywhere they can get away with
their hidden agendas.
