FYI Nevada,I never said a word about taxes. I said use some financial
responsibility and stop trying to do nothing to get rich. I don't want house
prices sky high because I feel bad for those poor, young first time homebuyers.
From my lurking around reading comments on these websites I've found that all
conservatives are interested in is scare tactics and tearing other people down.
It's a real disappointment knowing that most of the conservatives here are of
the majority religion around here and have such disrespect for other people. I
am also of the religious majority which automatically makes conservatives think
I'm some sort of apostate. However I probably keep the commandments just as well
as you do. You'd think you'd want to hear an opinion other than your own once in
a while. I shouldn't have been hanging out in such a narrow minded area of the
internet. My mistake.
To Anonymous...Right lets raise taxes on everyone as the lib's want to do. That
will really help the economy go into the toilet! Sometimes I wonder if the
lib's even have a brain!!
We're already in a recession, I heard it's official today. Maybe if people
weren't so greedy and ready to make house prices everywhere as high as in
California this wouldn't be happening. All over my neighborhood in the past
couple of years all I've heard is how great it is that we have so much equity in
our houses- as if that makes us rich somehow. I haven't seen my family's income
go up in correlation to the rise in house prices, or food prices or gas prices.
And eight years of G.W. certainly hasn't helped. It's likely most of Romney's
supporters were Bush supporters too, and look how well that turned out. We're
all worried about the economy. At least this is a legitimate concern, unlike all
the fear over gay marriage that drove the 2004 election, spearheaded by the
I thought it would be a guliani Vs. clinton battle all of 2008. But as the
economy has fell out. those two simply have a loss for words. The U.S. economy
is what makes the world go around. Don't vote for anyone but Romney. Unless you
want a recession. He has a plan the other too mentioned above plans are for a
If she were a man, I'd still think she was scary. It's not the gender, it's the
Educated Republican- In the Illinois State Senate (Not the U.S.)Obama voted
present rather than yes or no 130 times out of 4000. Not that many
percentagewise. He explained one questionable vote of present also. I'm
not counting out Hillary Clinton either. I think an Obama/Clinton ticket would
be very interesting. I don't mind Edwards either but it doesn't look good for
him. And before I hear anymore people calling Hillary mean and scary ask
yourself if you would think that if she were a man. I think we should be beyond
such discrimination anymore. Besides, could she possibly be meaner or scarier
I have studied the platforms, but more importantly, I have researched what each
candidate has achieved. Romney by all means is the most qualified and
accomplished by far. Obama is a magnificent Orator and uses past
speeches of famous Presidents and leaders, quoting them and altering their
quotes. To be a great Speaker does NOT qualify him to be President. He has no
experience and even after watching the debate last night, admitted that he did
not vote either yes or no over 100 times in his brief 2-year term as a Junior
Mitt is such a real deal. Huckabee crosses the line of being mean and
dishonest. i hope he is done after Florida. Gulianni will be done to. it is
between McCain and Romney. I think Romney would be superb. And I think McCain
or Condi rice would a great VP.
As an independent I will be going to the Feb. 5th primary and casting my vote
for Obama- because the Democrats will allow me to do that. Mitt Romney may be
able to handle the economy (yes that's important) but he isn't the only one out
there who can do that. Besides that it will be business as usual as far as Iraq
goes. McCane is the only Republican I can see becoming president and removing
that sick feeling I've had in the pit of my stomach since Bush was elected in
2000. A democrat like Obama is the only way to regain trust from the rest of the
world and make me feel like I still live in a country where independent thought
is appreciated and hoped for! It won't be bad if Romney gets the nomination- he
doesn't stand a chance against Clinton or Obama. If you want to guarantee a
Democratic President vote for Romney! People, please, you may not agree with me
but at least have the courage to study every candidate's platform- Republican or
Democrat. That's what I'm going to do.
Romney's style of managementMitt Romney is facing new questions
about his past financial dealings revealed during his tight 1994 Senate race.During that election it was discovered Bain Capital, a Boston-based
private equity group Mr. Romney led from 1984 to 1999, had acquired a company
called Ampad for $5 million in 1992. Ampad, in turn, had bought an Indiana
office supply store called SCM. Then the axe fell."We were just
fired," Randy Johnson, a former worker at the Marion SCM plant, told the Los
Angeles Times. "They came in and said, 'You're all fired. If you want to work
for us, here's an application.' We had insurance until the end of the week. That
was it. It was brutal."All 350 SCM workers were laid off and then
offered their jobs back at reduced wages.
It is my firm belief that most of the major news organizations (mostly liberal
Democrats), both local and national TV/Cable, are doing their best to discredit
Romney. It is clear what their agenda is, simply to manipulate the American
people from casting their vote for Romney, that way it is almost guaranteed that
the next President will be a Democrat. Romney would certainly be the most
formidable candidate. We finally have the possibility of having an honest,
open-minded, ethical, intelligent Presidential candidate, and when it comes to
our economy, he is definitely the only one who has the knowledge and
understanding of economics, which qualifies him to find the best economic
advisers. This is the first time in years that I am finally proud and confident
to cast my vote. I take nothing for granted, Romney needs my vote and yours to
become the next President of the USA.
The mainstream media continually discounts Romney in hopes that someone will
beleive them. They are running scared that if Romney wins, he will ultimately
whack either Hillary or Obama in the general election. The two Dems can't hold
a candle to Romney's credentials or accomplishments.
Very interesting interview Shan Hannity had last night with Jack Kemp about
McCains problems with the conservative base and his record on tax issues.
According to Kemp now McCain says voting against tax cuts was a mistake McCain
has seen the light and is now for tax cuts. McCain now says the McCain-Feingold
was a mistake now he is against it. McCain was against repealing the death tax
now hes for it. McCain wanted to increase Social Security Taxnow hes against
that. Im waiting for McCain to change on immigration next. Kemp
emphatically stated the McCain admits he made a mistake in judgment. Now that
these issues are a problem for McCain he has changed his mind. Again, according
to Kemp thats ok because we all make mistakes. I dont know but are we suppose
to believe he really saw the light and changed his mind or is this a flip-flop
on these issues. Can you imagine the headlines if this was
Romney!!! I for one would never trust McCain with the highest
office in the land. Romney has been the consistent voice from the GOP. Look
for Romney to win in Florida.
New Rasmussen poll from Florida dated January 20th: Mitt 25% McCain 20%
Guiliani 19% Huck 13%. Mitt's message about the economy is catching on with the
voters. A Mitt Romney - Gen. David Petraues (sp ?) ticket would be devastating
to the Democrates. Romney stong on economic issues and Petraues strong on
national defense and anti-terror issues. Wow, what a team that would be.
Please Republicans do not squander this opportunity.
Why do news reports always discount Romney's results in Iowa and New Hampshire.
They always say he struggled to find support in early states. He came in second
in both places.
This Romney guy could be the best politician you Yanks have had since Honest
Abe. For the sake of the free world,don't miss the chance to elect this
I believe if Huckabee withdraws before 5 Feb many of those voters will flow into
Romney's camp and that scenario would give him the best chance of winning the
nomination. Most Iowa voters favored Romney for a long time and the
conservative Christens are drawn to his morals, family life, etc; if not his
religion. He should do well.
