Did you see it?

I'll tell you what Habee I just don't have the energy right now..I have to go to bed but I can promise you if it weren't Mitt Romney it would be this same absolute slaughterhouse attack on whoever is on the other side of the ballot with an R next to his name.
I honestly think they would push for one party and one party only and use all this racism and voter suppression that doesn't exist and whatever they can to make it happen.
Whoever the guy with the R is....he is EVIL.
Slaughterhouse attack? Evil? I don't get it. There are things about Obama that I don't like but I recognize his attributes. And I certainly don't partake in wild-eyed villification, without rational justification.
We only have one party in California. Our choices for senate are two democrats. It will be a wonder if anyone who isn't a Democrat ever gets electric. Changed our primary laws two years ago so the two candidates with the most votes get on the general election. They don't even put the party association on the ballot in the primary.
One paraty state? Interesting observation.
I agree... but also disagree.
But I'm thinking this terms is Feinstein's final gig.
After that... who knows?
We have plenty of R Congressmen!
Governor, absolutely not!
We have actually had MORE R governors than D.
I don't look at their party affiliations. They are a bunch of twits who make laws on all the wrong things while letting the big (glaring) issues sit while they take big long breaks.
I think they must model themselves on US Congress for ineptitude!
I don't know where you are in CA, but living here in the capital city, I get a birds-eye view. Constant state of airsickness!
About 90 miles south west of Sac. Lived in Sac for 7 years. The state government has been run by the Blue party for 40 years. You are correct about governors and modeling ineptitude for sure..
Habee, I think Romney is probably a real good human being, and that is probably why it has been easy for the far right to take advantage of him the way they have, I believe he says what's true to his own beliefs one minute, and the far right comes out to CORRECT him and makes him out as a liar...this is why Ryan is the running mate, he really is far right ie. Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman...He stimulates this "Tea Party," base, that in my opinion is a "cult," If Mitt Romney had stayed the moderate middle man he started out to be, when running for governor, etc. this would be a different ballgame...but that is not the case..George W. Bush was a likeable man too...
I can see Romney taking advantage of the weakening Asian economies and bringing manufacturing back to America. Asian workers are demanding more money, and they are experiencing inflation. Considering transportation costs, The next few years will see manufacturing jobs return to America. Milton Friedman said that 15 years ago and Romney is well aware of that concept.
I know the real Romney. He burns money in front of homeless people for fun. He's been groomed since birth for the presidency, by big-money type people, which explains his decades of voluntary service in personal, business, and political arenas. He wants to kick middle-class Americans out of their homes, put them in a binder, and tie it to the roof of his car-elevator. He pays people to tell sappy stories about him, but he's too busy bankrupting companies on the side to do anything nice for people. He personally laughed at every worker that Bain ever laid off. Then he offered them $1 to shine his shoes.
Did I cover it all?
You forgot to mention that he has several wives and keeps them in binders. And he's a flaming racist. And he has no heart.
Eh, there's just too much to keep up with these days.
Yawn. Romney is a turn-around expert. He was called in when companies were failing. He saved several big name corporations. The guy has balls, brains, and integrity. Vote for him.
He saved mostly retail jobs. Low paying jobs. We need manufacturing jobs. And I disagree your description of him. Your guy is running for ego and birthright in my opinion.
Where do you live? Here, in WA, manufacturing jobs pay about the same as retail jobs. After I graduated and started looking for work, I saw job postings for assembly jobs and part construction all the time, most of which paid between 10 and 16 dollars an hour. With our unions, retail workers make upwards of 20 dollars an hour, when reaching journeyman status. Manufacturing jobs and retail jobs will both get you between 20k and 50k per year, DOE. Our minimum wage is also highest in the country. Come to Washington!
A wage is the price of labor. What is your labor worth? What can you do to make your labor more valuable? Like any commodity, you can cultivate your labor to enhance it's value. Don't talk about unions or prevailing wages, talk about you, and what you have to offer.
People who sell goods to the public are not worth any less than those who make the goods. Without the retail workers who sell, there would be nobody to sell them, therefore no reason to manufacture. Industryn needs sales people.. they are worth their work and they high wages Washington pays them!
Ego is a large part of success. I have no idea what "birthright" means.
So Willard Romney helped remove a tree stump? That's it? Nothing else in detail. Still doesn't tell me his plans in detail? He has a human side? I never said he didn't.
Hey you want to come by and make sure I don't defraud the election. I Am a Conservative after all....
Hell...maybe I shouldn't even be allowed to vote.
JS, It's a good thing you speak English or you may have thought the 8th was voting day, right....
Mitt Romney has spent literally years in volunteer service to others, and he donates millions to various charities. He doesn't drink; doesn't smoke; doesn't swear. He is a decent hard working successful American. He is smart, knows economic issues, and is strong on defense. Whatever argument you have, it is weak and impotent. Romney has my vote.
Good evening, Habee. My thanks for posting this clip. I like Charlie Rose.
I definitely agree with you! Mitt Romney is really a nice guy. I also agree with Waldo’s comments. The former governor volunteers his time and donates to charity. He has an untarnished reputation and made lots of money for himself. If this election was a popularity contest, I might even cast my vote for him. Unfortunately, it is not.
This election is about selecting a leader who will do his best to benefit all Americans. It is about choosing a president who will represent the 47% on the bottom and not just the 1-% at the top. Those who believe that the 1% at the top do not have enough and need help to get more should vote for Mitt Romney. For those not among the 1% at the top, Mitt Romney has not revealed any details about any of his “plans” to benefit you. I wonder why. Don’t you?
Thanks again, Habee, for the link. Ya dun good!
You just said the magic word "select"
Presidents are NOT elected, they are SELECTED
Evenin', Mr. Q. Sorry, but I don't like Obama's plan so far, so I have no reason to think it's going to work any better for the next four years. I think Obama is a good person, but I think he's in over his head with the economy, although I agree with him on several social issues. Who knows? Romney might be just as bad - or worse. I'm willing to give him a chance, though. That's what's so great about the good ol' USA. You can vote for who you think's best, and I can vote for who I think's best, and you and I can still be civil. Ain't it grand? lol
Oh, and speaking of "plans," CNN just reviewed Obama's new pamphlet of his plan for the economic future. They said there's nothing new in it. I have to take their word for it, as I haven't received one in the mail...yet.
I am pretty disenchanted with government. I would like to see it shrink down to basics and essentials. The economy is a mess because of government intervention. So I would rather see "no plan" for the economy. Why trust government when it comes to business. People in government usually no nothing about business. They spend $300. for a toilet seat.
Yes, habee, it IS a grand country.
Thanks again for launching this thread.
My life doesn't seem to vary much from president to president. I just don't feel comfortable with Obama. He is a career politician. He worked on community action committees, did legal work for the ACLU and ACORN, and interacted with seditious types like Ayers. He is just not my type of person. Mitt Romney is a businessman, a worker, a successful person who gives back to the community instead of always taking, like Obama. I think Romney will enhance economic growth, control our transactions with Asian economies, and be tough on our enemies. I don't agree with this new wave of socialist vilification of the wealthy. When I was growing up we admired successful people. The wealthy inspire us to work hard and achieve more and aspire to higher quality of living. The wealthy pay the majority of taxes and create jobs and economies of scale. The poor are self-indulgent and self-centered, like children. They, for the most part, give very little to the community.
Hi there, Waldo. There are a few things about poor people you obviously do not know.
Did you eat today? Hard working, self-reliant poor people provided the food on your plate. We owe them our thanks and gratitude for all of the fresh fruits, vegetables, and other agricultural products many Americans seem to take for granted. Nearly all of the food we eat is provided by hardy, energetic, dedicated, and committed poor people. They are not self-indulgent and they certainly are not self-centered. They are the hard working, under paid poor people that feed this country. Every year nearly five million poverty-stricken farm workers and their families toil in fields and factories across this nation to fill American stomachs. They leave their permanent homes to live in temporary housing for months at a time. They follow the crops from one rural area to the next, struggling to survive with seasonal employment. However, they are responsible for planting, cultivating, harvesting and processing the food that ultimately finds its way to your dinner table. These poor people provide goods and services on which we all depend. They endure low wages, hazardous conditions, horrible working and living situations, long workdays, and social isolation.
Self-indulgent, self-centered, children did you say? "They, for the most part, give very little to the community?" That perception is seriously flawed. It is time for America to wake up and smell the coffee. And, less we forget, poor people pick the coffee beans too.

I eat mostly processed food. Genetically modified by large corporations. So poor people don't produce my food, rich people do. Although I understand the chickens are very low paid.
Nothing changed because slow and steady wins the race. And wall street is back and unemployment is dropping. I've yet to hear Romneys plan other then he has a 5 point plan, with no details. The POTUS has never waivered from his plan. Romney is all over the place, he's for this today and tomorrows he's for that. Any salesman will tell you to tell the buyer what they want to hear. Romney is good at that! He's told every audience what they wanted to hear. He's far right, moderate and sometimes liberal. He's a chameleon.
I think that's the nature of politics, and politicians. Obama has been campaigning throughout his entire presidency.
But never changed his position anywhere near as much as Romney
And the previous adminstration following your outline did good?

Do you think Mitt Romney could beat Hilary Clinton for president in next election? Explain.Romney may try another run at presidency.

When Trump was deciding to run for President in 2015, he interviewed with Romney. He decided Romney was too weak to run for president and he was right. He also decided the rest of the 16 declared candidates cannot win either. That was why he decided to jump in. The rest is history.Romney just...

In recent history, every presidential contender has had to show the American people that he or she conducts their affairs in an open and honest way. Mitt Romney is not the exception. His resistance to releasing these returns, as encouraged by many in his own party, creates a reason to believe that...

He is clearly a pathological and habitual liar. He has poor control over his explosive temper. He giggles when confronted about disturbing behavior he has done in the past. Who is stupid enough to vote for a man who has poor self control, an explosive temper, and is unable to tell the truth....
