Hey BacktoBasics - "Get the facts. Mr. O. I really hope Romney
wins and shuts the mouths of the idiots who continue this ignorant rhetoric
because so far they have their minds closed and not their mouths."Hmmmm . . . Apparently you disagree with something I said, but you
weren't very clear on what points bothered you.Can you be more
specific?Hey Light and Liberty -"Just remember, the
tatooed kid with pants below his rear end has a vote as well"The
tattooed kid is not nearly as scary as the Republican who has been inhaling
Right Wing Radio for the last 30 years. Those types are nothing but trouble.They're the kind who thinks the best way we can get international
respect is to instill fear in the international community.Hitler's Nazis thought the same thing.How did that work out?
As much as my suspicions arise about any politician, I am more suspicious of the
ignorant and blind supporters of any Democratic or Republican candidate for
office. Office seekers I already know what their agenda is-to be a master, but
naive and ignorant supporters are what puts them in office, whether Democrat or
Republican. Without a coherent or rational thought, they will bicker back and
forth as to the relevance of a particular leader or platform philosophy without
using a smidgen of common sense. Really, the irony of it all. If voting really
mattered, do you think the power brokers in Washington would allow it? Just
remember, the tatooed kid with pants below his rear end has a vote as well.
Scary, I know. They usually end up in the liberal, progressive, Socialistic,
and everything is free camp.
It's pretty bold of him to go into a place like Mississippi and bash
Hillary Clinton. If such boldness continues, we might have local Utah
politicians suggesting they disagree with the President's policies.
@ nanacarol7, what expertise, and how does it help to run the country. I'm
sure one response will be his business acumen (which is subject to debate). How
is being President like operating a company? (Mitt actually has never operated a
company that actually produces something). Whenever Obama takes strong
executive action, the Republicans go apoplectic.@ What in Tucket?,
perhaps you should look at the article in today's Washington Post where it
talks about the right wing having enough of Palin and her antics. Her recent
incoherent speech may have sealed her fate, and the right is realizing what the
rest of us realized in 2008. She is incompetent and is only a self serving
media hound. Take away her platform on FOX and there is literally nothing
left.@ Joan Watson,Romney has yet to say how he will do anything at
all to address whatever issues the nation faces. Just saying "I'm
better than he/she is" doesn't cut it. It's all empty rhetoric.
Give us a vision, or go away, Mitt.
Mitt says Hillary "doesn't know where jobs come from". But he knows
where they go--overseas.
Baron Scarpia,Are you kidding around with the DN folks?You did see
and hear Sarah Palin this week as she spoke at a Conservative Conference?Yes, you gotta be joking with us.
American shot itself in the foot the first time Romney was not elected - it shot
itself in the head the second time he was not elected. If someone of
Romney's ability and stature is not elected president, this country will
continue its unsolved problems to the point where the unsolved will become
unsolvable without much tears and wearying sacrifice.
Based on GaryO's comment one would think at he lives on some alien planet.
Unfortunately, his views are all too common among those who continue to bellow
out the liberal mantra. Those who continue to downplay or dismiss Romney's
business acumen know little about economics and as for Hilary being successful -
that's a joke. Get the facts. Mr. O. I really hope Romney wins and shuts
the mouths of the idiots who continue this ignorant rhetoric because so far they
have their minds closed and not their mouths.Come to think of it, I
wonder how many liberal Democrats opposed to Romney are actually the authors of
some of these silly "responses."
The Left loves to criticize Mrs. Palin. She is beautiful and a woman and they
can't stand that. She is also a Tea Party person. ISn't it awful she
would like a balance budget? Lower taxes? Less government?
Looking at the timing of some of these comments, it seems some folks have
"locked"on to "Romney" and jump to make a derogatory comment
whenever a story with his name comes up. Seems odd...
I certainly hope it works out for Gov. Romney to run and win the presidency this
time. Our country needs his expertise and his love for this country. We
certainly don't have patriotism in the White House right now.
Mitt... lead. Stop telling us what the other people are doing in the review
mirror, and just drive your own race. What others are doing wrong has no
bearing on what you yourself are doing right.If I want to be
informed what the democrats are doing wrong, I can read the DN. They have it
well covered. It should be rebranded as the Deseret Republican News. But that
aside, if you going to convince the country to elect you to lead us over the
hill, you need to tell us why you are the right person, not why the other person
is wrong.Just my 2 cents. Now if you want to position yourself as
the parties attack dog... fine. But you just wont come out of it looking very
No amount of platitudes can convince me that Mitt Romney cares about the Middle
and working classes, and certainly not the poor. He has never shown any
evidence that he cares about the plight of working people and has often shown
Mitt's buddy Gov. Scott Walker just cut 300 mil from public universities,
and proposes 220 mil for a private sports stadium. Tax dollars at work by the
Once again, lots of talk and no concrete plan. If he wants to help the middle
class let's hear how he plans to accomplish it.
Mitt's trip abroad in 2012 was an abysmal failure. If that's the kind
of diplomacy he offers, then we would see yet another disaster in our foreign
policy. He is more inept at it than Bush was, and I fear his idea of diplomacy
is to send in U.S. troops to solve every issue in the world rather than build
coalitions. It's easy to take cheap shots and blame Clinton for every
problem in the world. But Mitt has no answers. He really doesn't.
Mitt keeps saying different things. Keeps changing lanes---I --and millions of
other intelligent Americans have no idea who he really is. I guess
that's why he's the best thing to happen to Democrats--EVER.Hey
Mitt...back away, go enjoy your grandkids, and learn how to say "Madam
President", as you'll be doing so for 8 years.
Hey Brio – “Benghazi is still a dark, sad mark on her
record.” No it isn’t, Benghazi is a good example of the propensity
of Republican Propagandists to LIE.That’s quite the story
“Conservatives” dreamt up. But it has absolutely NO basis in
fact.People who enter foreign service are well aware of the possible
dangers. And things happen.Hillary Clinton is no more responsible
for their deaths than if they had died in a traffic accident.The
“weak approach” of the Obama administration is far better than the
conduct of the preceding administration who foolishly lashed out
indiscriminately, and attacked a nation that had NOTHING to do with 911.It’s not as if Hillary Clinton dreamt up some false pretext to
justify sending thousands of Americans to die in some foreign war, is it?Only four Americans died in Benghazi. Over FOUR THOUSAND Americans died
in Iraq . . . for NO GOOD REASON.Which is worse?Which is
over a THOUSAND times worse?
Hillary won't be hard to defeat. Just play back her stupid statements to
voters. "Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and
businesses that create jobs.” Classic liberal anti business nonsense! Or
how about, "What difference does it make now"; The testimony she gave
before congress about her lies and cover-ups about the Benghazi murders of
Americans on her watch! Or just play back the "Russian relations reset
button debacle" and then mention the Crimea and Ukraine invasion by Russian
troops shortly thereafter. Hillary is not qualified or has any of the tools
needed to lead this nation and she has proven it over and over again!
Nancy Pelosi is on record of supporting Mitt as the GOP nominee, but I think
Sarah Palin is likely to sweep all the GOP candidates aside with her straight
talking manner, family values, and beloved conservative perspectives. I know many Utahns are excited about a Romney-Love dream ticket, but Sarah
Palin remains the heart and soul of the GOP.
"Leadership is not a popularity contest; it's about leaving your ego at

SharmaHow could a man who has an elevator for his car, keeps his
money and yacht in a foreign country to avoid paying taxes ever know or
understand what middle to lower class Americans need? His whole motivation to
become president is not to serve the people but to serve himself and his
The Republican Party does not like poor people, and unfortunately for them,
their policies have led to driving a bunch of the middle class into poverty.
@ Gary O:The only thing Hillary truly has a stellar record in is
allowing American foreign embassy personnel to get killed. Her lack of
involvement in Benghazi is still a dark, sad mark on her record. She achieved
absolutely nothing noteworthy while being Secretary of State or as a U.S.
senator. Nothing!And as far as keeping us "out of harm's
way", that weak approach is exactly what will end up putting us deeply in
harm's way. Please dont continue to be so naive by believing otherwise.
@Dragline:"Gov Romney is challenging Sec Clinton's foreign policy
credentials? That was a criticism towards him in 2012, that he has no foreign
policy experience at all. He better pick on someone else on this subject, like
all the other GOP candidates who have no foreign policy experience."Secretary Hillery absolutely screwed up foreign policy under her term.
Anyone should be able to do s better job."From his run for
senate in the 90's until 2012, wasn't he was criticized for
outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital?"I was just at Staples
right here in the good ole US of A. I thank Romney for saving the company."He may know how to create jobs in India, but not here in the
U.S."Recommend you try calling the DNews circulation and see who
you get."And now he is saying that he is fighting for the
underclass after his 47% speech and the 'the poor are doing fine'
comment?"And now, under the current executive in the White
House, the underclass has risen to over 60 percent.
Have you ultra-liberal Romney critics still not learned anything from the last
presidential election? Thankfully, many previous Obama supporters have. Multiple
polls over the past several months have all shown that Romney would beat Obama
by double-digit percentage points if the same election was reheld today.
Apparently, only the super-slow and very naive would still go with what the
democrats are offering. Romney has been shown to be right time and
time again regarding his past debate points in both foreign policy and national
economic policies. He's a proven winner in the real world and not just some
community organizer who has never had a real job before, Our country is still
paying a huge price for not realizing that earlier.It's nearly
unbelievable how deeply some of Romney's critics are being shown to have
buried their heads in the sand and apparently left them there.
Mitt Romney is Right.
Where does Mitt officially reside? His abandoned states of Michigan or
Massachusetts? Or is it where he also owns luxury homes in California and Utah?
In other words, where is he a registered voter? "Corporations are people, my
friends!!" - Mitt Romney
Very Sad...and then people wonder why he is not liked...Civility.
Cultivating neo-Confederates in Mississippi is just the thing to make a
Republican presidential candidate more appealing to a diverse electorate, eh?
Mitt's record in MA in building Repub-Demo problem solving groups is a
record no other candidate has. This ability is sorely needed to solve problems
in our country.
Interesting that Mitt Romney would do early campaigning in Mississippi.It
is wildly known and understood what tone one has to embrace in the South to get
ahead.Just one more sad scenario for Romney.
I would vote for Mitt Romney ANY day over Hillary Clinton!
Yeah, Mitt Romney is just a regular Robin Hood.
Hey AZKID -'Foreign policy has less to do with
"experience" as you describe it, than it has to do with being well
informed and having a correct worldview."Oh, a "correct
worldview" huh? ... A worldview approved by the Kochs?They've got so much money, they must be right . . . Right? I get what
your saying, but I disagree.Romney took his "correct
worldview," off of Right Wing Radio.But I see your point, Rush
Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, and the rest of that crowd are geniuses.They know global warming isn't real, in spite of what
"scientists" have to say about it. What makes "scientists" think
they're so smart anyway?And all Right Wing Radio Jockeys know
how to handle world affairs, don't they? Just kill everybody, and let God
sort'em out.And of course Mitt has that Worldview too.
It's the only way he could possibly get the Republican nomination for
POTUS.But Hillary has a stellar record of keeping this nation out of
harm's way, and NOT mired in devastating wars.Don't you
think that's really the better approach?
“Mitt Romney is renewing his pledge to fight for the poor and middle class
. . .”Fight for? . . . Or fight against?"How
can Secretary Clinton provide opportunity for all if she doesn't know where
jobs come from in the first place?"Oh come on. Hillary Clinton
actually had to work for a living. She wasn’t born with the proverbial
silver spoon. What does Romney know about getting a job?"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cluelessly pressed a reset button for
Russia, which smiled and then invaded Ukraine, a sovereign nation," Romney
says.LOLYeah, and Mitt KNEW that was going to happen.
Just ask his delusional supporters.Mitt is obviously projecting when
he refers to Hillary as “clueless.” Hillary has the experience,
and a proven record of success.And Mitt Romney has what? . . .
Aside from a lot of money, a massive ego, a record of flip-flopping, and an
arrogance that compels him to say “I told you so,” even if he
didn’t.Hillary used her intelligence and work ethic to achieve
success. And Mitt is just a child of wealth and privilege, who has achieved
@Dragline-You forgot the talking point that Romney was responsible for the
death of a cancer patient- oh, wait, that was discredited, as were all your
other talking points.
Get out the etch-a-sketch -- Mitt's trying to remake himself again.
Hopefully people will see through his efforts again.
@DraglineForeign policy has less to do with "experience" as
you describe it, than it has to do with being well informed and having a correct
worldview. Romney has it. Hillary/Obama--not so much. Just look at world
headlines over the past two years. Romney had the demonstrably correct
worldview. Regarding which candidate would be more effective at
truly understanding and solving poverty, I give you Mitt's many instances
of personal compassion, service, and generosity that have quietly made their way
into the public record. Can you show me anything similar from Hillary? I
didn't think so. What is the true measure of the candidate? Personal
behavior or political talking points? I submit that it is the former.
The new Sarah Palin.
Gov Romney is challenging Sec Clinton's foreign policy credentials? That
was a criticism towards him in 2012, that he has no foreign policy experience at
all. He better pick on someone else on this subject, like all the other GOP
candidates who have no foreign policy experience.And can Mitt ask
the question "How can Secretary Clinton provide opportunity for all if she
doesn't know where jobs come from in the first place?" Wasn't that
the main criticism of his detractors throughout his political career? From his
run for senate in the 90's until 2012, wasn't he was criticized for
outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital? He may know how to create jobs in India,
but not here in the U.S. And now he is saying that he is fighting
for the underclass after his 47% speech and the "the poor are doing
fine" comment?It seems that Mitt needs some fact checking here.
We in Utah may take what he claims as gospel, but this will not, and has not,
worked in Peoria or elsewhere across this country.
