LValfreCHICAGO, IL,You need to do your homework. Getting two
degrees from Harvard takes work, and he didn't take money from his father, but
earned it on his own. Your envy is hindering you.
BYUalumSouth Jordan, UTVince, Please go to your own
liberal posts and stay out of ours. You're trying poison the well.Excuse me, when did DN become a place for conservative opinions only? I
believe anyone has a right to post here regardless of how they lean. You have
every right to your opinion of Mitt Romney but not everyone agrees with you and
some of those that disagree with you are Republicans as well as Democrats and
Independance. My personal opinion is that if the Republicans want to win the
election in Nov. they should find a new candidate before the 4 remaining
candidates rip the guts out of the party. Right now I see 4 more years for

In last night's debate, the word, "jobs" was mentioned 6 times.The word(s), "birth control?8 times.There's
your 'small government' Republican party 2012. I wonder if they'll
get it together come 2016.
Vince, Please go to your own liberal posts and stay out of ours. You're trying
poison the well.I happen to think we have an outstanding candidate
in Mitt Romney! His credentials are perfect for leading this country at this
critical time. His knowhow on economic issues is first rate. The real question
is, "Are the people in this country ready for a real leader like
Romney." They have been drinking koolaid and listened to smooth talking BHO
and the liberal media for so long, one wonders if some of you can let go of the
bias and see a good man standing before you. Let's stand up for this country and
vote Obama out of office in November. Don't let naysayers do your thinking for
you. Pray earnestly and then listen!Mitt Romney 2012
@LValfre - Romney said he donated his inheritance, and built his wealth from
scratch using his own abilities, intellect, and hard work. Not a single person
of significance has challenged that, to my knowledge, including his Republican
opponents, Obama, or media pundits.But, you know better. It's
obviously just a big lie, and everyone else is giving him a pass on this big
claim, even though they nit-pick every other word the man says, and make up a
lot of other nonsense about him.
Between the 8 or so "mega big businesses" then add on the print and
broadcast media with their filthy hands opened wide for campaign advertising,
the phony advertising of the 8 mentioned above and what chance do we middle
& low incomers really have? None, zero, zilch! What are we going to do? A
massive citizens revolt thats what, and the sooner the better!
I have never seen such a group of doofus unqualified liars in my life, as the
four remainimg candidates for the presidency representing the republican party!
First off let us all understand that one person alone(the president) calls the
shots as to how this country is run, it's the congress that ignorant voters from
all of the states that makes law and votes for the rottem greedy ways our
country has to live under. All of the "big businesses" have now
decided that they are going to buy what they want and we have congessmen willing
to take their slimmy money and make sure they get it. What a travesty. A revolt
is coming people!
GOP..... Please give us new winning candidate. These are 4 candidates are very
poor examples of the Republican party. None of them can win the keys to the
"JaredAverage, SERe: LValfreMitt Romney was not
born a multi-millionaire. His parents owned that money. Romney had economic
advantages but he donated 100% of his inheritance. His current net worth is
because of his hard work, his intelligence, his ability to surround himself with
good people, and maybe some extra luck/blessings.A lot of people
born into economic advantage do nothing but squander whatever money they get
their hands on. Romney started at the bottom in business and climbed his way up.
Romney was about as self-made as people come."Sorry Jared, I
don't know where you're getting your facts from but these statements are simply
not true. I know you'd love to believe it ... but Romney was born with a silver
spoon and all the advantages anyone could ask for. You can try to ignore that
fact all you want but it is a fact.
romney has much more experience. santorum needs more time learning. romney did
great...he bit his tongue comments a few times. santorum didn't make sense in
some of his comments. i fear another inexperienced man might be elected and our
country cannot take more of that kind of hit.
Grammy 3If by "more presidential" you mean Romney was more
standoffish, better-than-thou, and impossible for the common man to relate
to, then you're right.
Congressman Ron Paul had the best solutions and attitude toward our problems.
Mitt Romney only looked better than Rick Santorum because Ron Paul cut
Santorum's comment that politics is a team sport. Ron Paul blasted that
attitude. He appears to be the one who can offer real change. He would keep Us
out of war. Pride and politics push Newt Gingrich to drag us into war; and Mitt
Romney would not know how to keep out of war with Iran.
I still have no idea what that robot Romney will do if elected. All he does is
throw mud.That's ok. The GOP is a mess.
Boring....... Same old........ Except.....Ron Paul....but they won't let
I'm a Conservative Republican and I must say, I'm not really thrilled about who
we have running at the present time. At this point Romney gets my support but
can he beat Barack? I'm afraid Barack is too smooth!!
The only points Mitt makes these days about why you should vote for him for
President is that he's not as bad as the other 3 guys!He's not a
socially radical as Santorum.He's not as morally incoherent as
Gingrich.And he has now apparently hired Ron Paul as his newest
Super Pac to attack Santorum, and continue taking votes from him.Those are his selling points at this time. Vote for him because he's not as
flawed as the others.Sounds an awful lot like John Kerry and 2004.
And the end result will be the same.

multi-millionaire isn't as impressive as someone who earned it themselves
through perseverance and hard work. He really tried to relate with us by saying
he's unemployed? Hahahahah.
I'm glad Ron Paul was there. His "nothing to lose" attitude allows him
to state things in ways the other candidates would like, but can't because of
the need for political correctness. Hooray for him.
What do you think if Romney chose Ron Paul as a running mate? I think it a good
match and It would help him defeat Obama. Ron Paul is considered very consistent
and well liked person. Romney and Ron Paul would do well together.
Romney was the winner tonight he was more Presidential than the other three. I
do love Ron Paul even though I feel that he can not win over Obama I like some
of his ideas and he has to be one of the cutest little old man around. This
Country needs Mitt Romney at this time I pray that this nation of ours will see
this as well. He is smart and is a very gifted man. Newt is smart as well but
his temper is what scares me. Rick is just a whiner and we do not need a whiner
of a President right now.
To fix the country, we need a business man,--not a senator, and certainly not
our current president.
@BYUalum"I also liked that the three main candidates supported
each other's views on Iran and nuclear weapons. Ron Paul almost adds comic
relief."Ron Paul was not there for comic relief. He's giving a
solemn warning. We have already made the mistake of assuming that a country has
dangerous weapons when there are none. Iraq was a tragedy. Thousands of
soldiers died and ten of thousands or Iraqis. If we insist on war with Iran
people will die, and we may have a repeat of Iraq all over again. Ron Paul is
not trying to make people laugh, he is raising the same voice of warning he did
before the war in Iraq. If we go to war, we need to have the moral
justification, follow the Constitutional process, and provide a way for it to be
paid for. Not one of the three candidates supporting war with Iran could
explain how any of those requirements would be met.
I, too, liked Ron Paul taking some well deserved swipes at Rick Santorum. When
he called him, "Fake", I thought the silence was deafing. I thought
that Mitt Romney came out the strongest in this debate. I also thought Rick
Santorum showed weakness in many of his responses. He couldn't back off some of
the things he supported and voted for in his term in the Senate and was called
out by the other three on stage. I also liked that the three main candidates
supported each other's views on Iran and nuclear weapons. Ron Paul almost adds
comic relief. Newt Gingrich just rocked back on his chair like an old man.
Romney doesn't need a super-pac with Ron Paul along side doing the heavy lifting
and stepping on Santorum's neck about half of the time. Santorum was finally
exposed pretty well in the debate. I look for his poll numbers to drop.
Ron Paul: Consistent!
My favorite part was when Gingrich was asked for a one word description of
himself and he said "cheerful". I'm sure the political fact checker
sites rated that one "pants on fire". The second best
part was when Ron Paul called Rick Santorum a "fake" right to his
face. You have to give points to Ron Paul for being brutally candid. I wished CNN would have asked better questions to differentiate the
candidates. It seemed to be the same old rehash of every other debate.
