Hollywood celebrities are one of Obama’s biggest supporters and contribute
a lot to his campaign at the same time condemning American capitalism. Yet it
was this same system which they condemn that made them their millions they all
enjoy. Now if that is not the ultimate in hypocrisy.
As an LDS Church member who happens to be a Democrat I'm not sure I like
this phrase being used for political purposes. No thinking person seriously
believes one political party has a monopoly on being 'right' anyway.
Still, I'll support this group's free speech rights to use whatever
phrase they'd like.
Is nothing sacred? As if the mormon church really endorces the right wing?
People are making a lot of assumptions. I'm sure Christ will
come soon with his plan to concentrate wealth in the hands of a few.
I'm not a lawyer or an elections official, but it sure looks like this
group is violating all kinds of election finance laws.Furthermore,
they seem to be altering the Romney campaign's trademarked logo. The Romney
campaign should be sending them a cease and desist letter.Hope the
Choose the Right people have some good lawyers.
Or in Mitt Romney's case, Choose the Slightly Less Left of Center. :-P
Mtt Romney doesn't get all his choices for who supports him and that
isn't all that bad. It give people an opportunity to see what other
people, not from the specific campaign are thinking and saying. This is a free
country and free speech is a blessing as well as a hindrance for some people in
and out of politics. We need to be willing to let people bring this flavor into
the campaign. I see the Chicago group spending millions with the old Obama crew
from DC trying to spin unworthy items into the news arena. They are fearing
their Democratic Convention and the reality that they have a candidate that spun
the spin on them 4 years ago. I know Mrs. Clinto is probably cringing everytime
she thinks about giving up four years ago. She would have done a better job
than this President as she has had some experience with the Oval office. This
President could have had good people in his administration but he chose people
with an agenda against the policies of Presidents and Congress for 200 years.
They wanted a wholesale change after his 3 1/2 years in office of CHANGE.
@Riverton Cougar"Has anybody noticed that now the anti-Romney comments
are becoming less and less supportive of Obama, but rather simply being
anti-Romney? "Polling shows that Romney supporters are the ones
much more likely to be anti-other-guy voters than Obama supporters. This is an
article about a pro-Romney group so it's not surprising that the comments
are more pro or anti Romney whereas articles about Obama are more pro or anti
Obama.@A1994"Tonight, while the unemployment rate is at
8.3%, while the economy languishes, Barack Obama is at Harvey Weinstein's
place in Connecticut for a $35,000 per plate fund raiser. "He's doing that because Romney out-fundraised him the last three months
and this wouldn't be a problem at all if it weren't for the Republican
massive load of super-pac money. Do you think Obama's supposed to
unilaterally disarm? Fundraisers wouldn't be so necessary if we got big
money out of politics. Besides, Congress has to pass the bills for him to
sign."Can you Obama supporters point to even ONE thing"We've gained private sector jobs 29 straight months.
To "Furry1993" what in Romney's past would suggest that he will
simply give money to his cronies? Assuming there is some evidence to support
your accusations, how is it any different than the record of Obama? Remember
Solindra was filled with Obama cronies. The Keystone pipeline's demise
means millions for Soros. There are companies like ECOtally, Abound Solar,
Nevada Geothermal Power, Ener1, and Amonix all were given millions of taxpayer
money by Obama, and the only people who benefited were the owners, many of which
are strong Obama supporters. What about the billions given to the UAW in the
form of Chrysler?If you are against crony capitalism, why are you
only against it for Republicans while supporting it when it comes from

I volunteer to be the one to remind Rick that one candidate in this election
TAUGHT Constitutional law. It wasn't Mitt.
How offensive. Every day I grow more disgusted with people insisting on making
Romney the Mormon choice. He is a political candidate, nothing more and I, for
one, do not appreciate my religion being drug down in the political dirt. Hopefully Romney will disavow this overly rambunctious group or at least rein
them in. Is this slogan copyrighted I hope? I know I will never use it
I think that this group may know about the Constitution than Romney does. He is
not a student of the constitution, but hopefully more than our current
You could vote for Romney and you'd be choosing the "right" but it
would be wrong.
Re: Mark B Eureka, CA"I think I prefer the slogan used by an old SLC
car dealer - "Come to Zion"."Choose The Right is a
catchy phrase, will resonate with the vast majority of active Mormons, and
certainly beats Obama's slogan which is: "Gimme 4 More Years And Maybe
I Can Do Something About Our Unemployment Problem".
Waste of money. The only ones who would be persuaded by such a slogan are LDS,
and they are already effectively a voting bloc in favor of MR.Their
money and efforts would be better spent going out to swing states like OH and PA
and helping the campaign with old-fashioned voter registration and

@Riverton Cougar"Has anybody noticed that now the anti-Romney
comments are becoming less and less supportive of Obama, but rather simply being
anti-Romney?"Yes. When GDP grows at 1.5% and unemployment is
over 8% for 41 straight months, then you start to hear talk of Romney being a
felon, Romney not paying his taxes for 10 years (some guy said) and Romney
beating up gay kids.Here is the fact. Tonight, while the
unemployment rate is at 8.3%, while the economy languishes, Barack Obama is at
Harvey Weinstein's place in Connecticut for a $35,000 per plate fund
raiser. (Most 'working Americans' can afford $35,000 a plate,
right?)I am so sick of the hypocrisy of the American left and the
uneducated comments that attempt to make Romney look like he broke the law.
There is NO plan from the Democratic Party. Nothing. Can any one of you Obama
supporters point to even ONE thing that says another four years is going to make
the country and the economy better? Even ONE thing?
@Riverton CougarI never liked Romney and I don't like Obama
either. I felt Ron Paul had the best ideas to get this country back on track
financially and civilly. Romney is just as sketchy to me as Obama and I
don't necessarily trust either. Plus, they both seem okay with more
violence and wars which I'm completely against. Get our troops home (save
lives and gain foreign respect again), cut our expenses substantially
(especially give-aways and war ... we'll save trillions there alone almost
immediately), give American's their freedoms (gay marriage, marijuana,
whatever .... are we a free country or not?).Am I the only one who
feels that the "Spread of Democracy" and "Operation Iraqi
Freedom" as we call them are just modern day crusades again from a Christian
superpower nation? And you wonder why we're hated!
Would you rather see, choose the wrong?Chris B, your choice of
people to hang with, is a bit odd.If your going to choose a Demmy to hang
with, at least choose Clinton.Obama, would be like hanging with the
kid who can't make a free throw, or get a hot date!
As silly or lame as the slogan is, it is accurate. Has anybody noticed that now
the anti-Romney comments are becoming less and less supportive of Obama, but
rather simply being anti-Romney? It's because Obama is indeed a poor
choice for the upcoming election. Don't buy into the "created
jobs" lie. If it weren't a lie, the private sector might actually be
doing fine. But it's not.Romney is the way to go. You may not
like him (listening to too many lies from the left), but you have to admit that
our best hope for this country is to vote for him.
@toosmartforyou"(Can't wait to hear the howling in November
should Romney win........)"You won't have to because he
won't. Not that Obama's any better ...
@toosmartforyou"Toooo funny....no matter what he chose you'd find
fault with it."This wasn't a Romney campaign decision,
it's something made by an outside group that supports Romney so he
didn't choose this.
Com-mon, anti's----why don't you blame George Bush for the slogan you
don't like??? Toooo funny....no matter what he chose you'd find fault
with it. How many people really know thing one about the LDS religion, let
alone what CTR means?This is better than "Change you can believe
in" which bankrupted the country and kept unemployment way off the
charts------but that was George W's fault too, wasn't it? Have you
heard Harry's false rant about Mitt not paying taxes? I wonder where is
his outrage against Timothy? (Oh, he's a Demo so it's ok I guess.)(Can't wait to hear the howling in November should Romney
Be careful about how much you actively inject your religious views into the
campaign, or you set yourself up for becoming a target.
@ute alum"better than choose the left. keep drinking the obama
kool aide"it is that type of brilliant retort that will win
Obama the campaign, great use of your free speech, keep up the good work.
@Chris B."A guy who is very cool to hangout with and is "almost
breakeven" on jobs during his presidency after having spent trillions to fix
the problem."Actually Romney said that a new president should
get 6-12 months of leeway in order to get their policies in place. That's
his excuse for his being 50th in job creation his first year as Governor and
then increasing after that. If we apply the 6 month standard to Obama he's
actually +3 million private sector jobs. +4 million if we give 12 months of
leeway.@Craig Clark"My guess is that Team Romney is
grinding its teeth over this one."Absolutely. This group just
screams "I'm voting for Mitt because he's Mormon". It's
just a good thing that Rafalca isn't a white horse or else it'd
probably get worse.

was "If You Could Hie to Kolob."
furry1993,better than choose the left. keep drinking the obama kool aide
Choose the Right has an LDS hymn book meaning and a political meaning Romney is
trying to distance himself from to capture the ideological center he needs to
win. My guess is that Team Romney is grinding its teeth over this one.
I will be choosing the right. That's why there is nothing that could
convince me to vote for Mitt. Mitt acts only to rake in money for himself and
his cronies, to the detriment of the people he has to walk all over to get that
money, and everyone else can go hang. That is NOT what this country needs.
Lame slogan. However, our choices for president are:1) A guy with a
proven 30 year history of making unprofitable things profitable or2) A guy who is very cool to hangout with and is "almost
breakeven" on jobs during his presidency after having spent trillions to fix
Sounds like a group encouraging Romney to honestly move to the right - to walk
Choose the Right, well that is certainly a stretch!
how often does obama bring up his religion?........... that's what I
thought. This election is NOT about religion, it is about the economy and
obama's terrible financial policies.
