GOLDEN, Colo. – Mitt Romney appeared in Colorado today and promoted his bipartisan work as governor of Massachusetts. He told supporters at a rally that Americans need a president in DC who “buries the hatchet.”
“I worked in a state. I found a way to work across the aisle, by the way. And when I look — we’ve got to have someone that goes to Washington that buries the hatchet and says you know what, there are good Democrats, there are good Republicans that care about America, let’s work together to get the American people working, get some growth again.
This is important. Getting America working, this isn’t a statistic we’re talking about. 23 million Americans out work or underemployed. 23 million.
It’s a tragedy. It’s a moral failing for a country as successful and wealthy as ours to have had policies that kept people from going to work. I want to get people back to work that want to work. Put them in good jobs with more take home pay.”
Blah blah blah.
He's not going to have any more control over it than Obama does, and Congress is a waste of the oxygen they suck in between empty speeches.
I just think it's brilliant to use the word "moral failing" in his speech.
Dishonest as hell, but true.
I don't believe he will do anything to create jobs, either.
Just find the whole POTUS election a welcome distraction (for me) from the even more ridiculous, useless politicians here in my own backyard. Which I know is yours, too, Shades.
The word clusterf@$k comes to mind about the wasteproducts in City Hall and the Capitol.

This is why Romney lost. He displayed poor cognitive reasoning. He actually said that the widely known fact that smaller classroom size in schools is advantageous to students was misinformation perpetuated by teacher's unions to hire more teachers.Are teachers insidious, or is Romney...

Republicans have been claiming James Carville is nuts for years now. Are they right or is what James Carville said right? He is what he said:“Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology. The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay...

As a Romney supporter, why do you think he lost?Many conservative outlets say the Mitt Romney was too moderate. What do you think the next GOP candidate should do to secure the extremist position and vote? Instead of banning gay marriage, maybe ban the gay lifestyle? Run on a 'Barefoot, pregnant,...
