So, which of our politicians do you think is a "common man"? Actually, I don't want someone like me as POTUS. I prefer someone with lots more economic smarts than I have. lol. Isn't Mitt unemployed, technically?
I'm so sick of hearing about Romney's work at Bain. He created and saved so many jobs, and so much of that information is available to look at as a primary source, rather than reading some AP re-write.
His supervisor at Bain was 3rd down in power in the Mossad.
"This relationship between the Israeli military and Mitt Romney, a presidential candidate, should be of great concern to all Americans because this is how the Israeli military plans to drag the United States into a war with Iran."
You should lure him in with an idea about a chain of retail stores, where customers walk in, and are helped with the process of designing their own baby bedding from a large selection of colors, patterns, and fabrics. A great idea needs a great venture capitalist!
Unlike the rich guy we have now who takes care of his friends? Unions, Solyndra bundlers, Siga, Fisker, Warburg Pincus, Burlington Northern, First Solar, Westport, Petrobas, GE, VantagePoint, Elon Musk, Ener1, Amyris Biotechnologies, etc., etc.
If you see the unions eliminated you will shortly see a lowering in pay to non union workers. If not for the unions, a competive salary wouldn't exist. Teachers and nurses would be my guess to get hit first given the attacks on public education and health care.
Great idea, Ron! I should take Mitt some good ol' southern food: hoppin' John, turnip greens, cracklin' cornbread, limpin' Susan, and boiled peanuts. After his yankee taste buds experience some real southern cuisine, he's sure to make me his GA campaign chair! Wonder how much that pays?
Hypocrisy?? How about when you read my comments on this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/93373 and said you know all about my "political orientation"?? Looks like you HAVE been reading my comments, huh? You're arguing with yourself. If you do, indeed, know all about my "political orientation," as you claim, then you would know that I'm a Romney supporter. Can't have it both ways! lol
"Clear Channel owns 850 stations while its hosts complain about "burdensome regulations"
Just think...get rid of the remaining regs, and they can own all of radio! Oh JOY. Rush Hannity Beck and Ingraham 24/7......wait, how would that be any different????
Since Pelosi ended Bush's band-width rule...more Liberal talk has emerged. It is a life-saver for people like me. It's dis-heartening to never hear you pov anywhere. Let's not go back to that time (2000-2008) where all you heard was GOP talk.....and the basest elements of it.
True he did retire, but part of his retirement package was passive profit sharing which continues to make him millions. So, not actively in the company, I would have hoped he would have condemned Rush's slut statement. Instead he answers with, "not language I would have used". So does he agree with Rush? Does he think women who use birth control really sluts as Rush said? I'm sorry, I have a problem with that statement. If that's the best he can do with an attack on a young college student, he's not my choice.
I agree Ramsa1, this guy didn't create jobs. He outsourced, fought against unions, and created unemployment. And continues to make money with his Bain retirement, and buy his way into the position of candidate for President. And after hearing his answer about Rush's comments, I can only come to one conclusion. He has no respect for women, yet women want to endorce him? Go figure. He was for the blunt ammendment, then against it with some sorry excuse. We're going backwards if women would vote for someone that wishy washy on womens health issues.
No, the reporter asking the Blunt Amendment question (in the interview I saw) asked it in a confused way that no one could have answered correctly. Sorta like, "Have you stopped beating your wife?"
I'm assuming you're an Obama supporter. After how he treated Hillary, I'm surprised women still voted for him. And Obama is not a job creator; look at the number of jobs he lost on Keystone alone. Romney "created unemployment"? Is that like Al Gore created the Internet? Mitt wants to "buy his way," while Obama is going to spend a billion on his re-election campaign? Funny.
A confused way? Sounds like you're trying to justify your wanting to vote for him? And no, I'm not an Obama supporter, but I must say the economy appears to be on an upswing. And you don't answer Romney and creating jobs. Instead you avoid the answer with a question, and the same response with buying the campaign statement. And no response to women's health issues. Seems you're not to sure yourself of Romney. I can understand why however. His record or lack there of is hard to defend.
I don't have to justify my support or my vote to you. I've said that I don't think Romney is perfect, but to me, he seems to be the best choice we have. And I like him even more after listening to him today. You should vote for the candidate who seems best to you - it's the American way. I assure you that no matter whom you pick, he or she will have negatives.
But...I'll try to answer your questions, anyway. Yes, Romney helped to create jobs. Yes, some jobs were lost. That's free market capitalism. By "women's health issues," do you mean abortion? I hate abortion, but I think it should be legal in some circumstances. I disagree with Romney on the issue. As for spending money campaigning, I'm not sure how to answer that. Isn't a candidate supposed to get as many donations as he can? Santorum and Gingrich WISH they had the campaign money that Romney has, and Romney supporters WISH Mitt could have as much $$ as Obama will have to spend on his re-election. And as for Mitt's personal wealth, I think that's a plus because he won't be easily bribed by money. As for the Blunt Amendment, I'll have to do some more research. Sorry.
I agree that much of the economy seems to be improving. If it continues, I think Obama will win the election, as I've said numerous times on these forums.
I appreciate the responses. Only one missing, his answer to Rush's comment about Sandra Flake. This wasn't about abortion, but the use of contraceptives. As for free market capitalism, I'm for it, so long as the assets of said company isn't robbed, proceeds going to stockholders, and the workers without jobs. Leaving the tax payers to insure the lost retirement funds. And one should vote for the one they feel is the best, I'm with you there. I just don't see any of the four as best, unless I choose the best of the worst.
So do you equate Christianity with Mormonism? I merely vote for the lesser of two evils as always. We don't know exactly who the con men were in biblical days, but Joseph Smith is rather easy to research.
So, is one "con man" better or worse than another? Is one "fairy tale" religion better or worse than another? And yes, I consider Mormons to be Christians. But I don't really care about a candidate's religion, unless it becomes a problem, which I think it is with Santorum. I want a leader as POTUS - not a preacher. And I'm sure you agree with that, and we undoubtedly share similar feelings about Santorum.
I also agree with you about voting for the lesser of two evils. I kinda envy the Paul supporters' feelings. Most of them LOVE RP! I think many of Hillary's supporters felt the same way about her.
