This article didn't factor in the free promotion Mitt get daily in Utah in the
LDS owner press.
his ONLY fans?
WOW. 35.4 million of his own money? I guess he thinks he can buy it!
What is even more impressive is the way Utahans have been duped by this guy. For a people that claim to support and stand by the inspired
constitution, this is a sad day.
This is one of those stories where you have to ask: Is there gambling in Las
Vegas?Nice facts and data, but it isn't news.It also
sounds from the latest news that Mitt might fold up the tent after Super
Tuesday. Now, that would be a story. His rationale would be... ???
Can't believe Utahns are donating to a candidate that once supported the primal
political sin of abortion.
The donation statistics in this article describe a real weakness in Romney's
campaign. In terms of funding, he can only rely on his own wealth and Mormon
contributions. Already, Romney has spent $35 million from his own pocket and is
willing to now go deeper for Super Tuesday results. Americans are not behind
Romney's campaign in a way he needs. He certainly is not receiving money from
conservative Christians, the group he considers his base. I doubt that he will
successful against McCain, but if he is he will not be competitive in a general
election. At some point, a Romney slaughtering will happen.
I guess there are many people who want Mitt as President all over the country.
He has won in 3 states so far. GO MITT!
think they can buy it. After all. Why are they gathering money? It's not to
spread to the poor!
You know I don't know if you are looking at this with a real understanding of
Mit Romneys intentions here. He loves America, and does have the skills that
could and would help our economy. Working in the private sector brought him
from word to mouth doing a good job. If they didn't like his performance he
would not have gone on to be asked to do other great things such as the
Olympics, and Mass. Gov. You don't get that reputation unless you do the right
thing. As far as everyone bashing him for being rich and spending all the money
he wants is terrible. He cares so much he has given of his own, because it
means so much to him to help our country. And as far as him being a Military
Comandr and Chief........... Have you forgotten that Pres Clinton was a deserter
and was forgiven. Romney has so much more than anyone even realizes to
offer. How sad that our country has so little faith to believe in something
that looks too good to be true.......
In response to the comment "I guess he thinks he can buy the presidency". It
takes a lot more money for someone who is relatively unknown and doesn't have
the free advertising that McCain gets from the MSM.
Mittney is the right man for the job. And, since that's clearly the only crieria
Utahns place on the candidate, as is evidenced by our strong continuing support
for shrub, we support mittney totally. Religion has nothing to do with it.
Unless you support someone else, then it's religious bigotry.
Go Mitt I Cant see Canadians Dealing with Hillory.
If Romney doesn't win and McCain does, America will have what the liberal press
has always wanted - a one party Democratic country. McCain is a Democrate in
sheep's clothing. He is not the "true conservative" that he is pretending to
be. I know a number of Republican party members who will never vote McCain no
matter what he calls himself or pretends to be. Check him out yourself. After
you do, ask yourself if you want this man with his fingers on our nuks!
Romney blew it. BIG TIME.Romney pretended to be a liberal to run for
Governor of MA. Now he's pretending to be a conservative to run for the
Presidency. If Romney had stayed true to who he was, and what he
believed he probably would have had a much better chance. But when you can read
online that one of his "campaign tactics" was to "disparage France any chance
you get," you can easily see the height of his hypocrisy and the lengths this
former Mormon missionary to France will go to to pander to the far right.Unfortunately Romney has exposed himself as an insincere fraud. And
being handsome and worth millions (which seems to really impress his Utah
supporters) isn't nearly enough to overcome his true emptiness.
This guy is worth over $250 million. Why would anyone give him anything?Romney is for the rich individuals and wealthy corporations. Obama is
for the lazy poor people. Here we go with another election where the middle
class lose either way.
The country is now embracing McCain despite the fact that he is a true moderate.
I believe at heart Romney is also very moderate. This country is also largely
very moderate as people have rejected the extremes of politics. It's a shame
Romney felt he had to portray himself as something he is not - the right wing
representative. Mitt has some incredible talents that could help this country
particularly in the economic sector. But he blew it by trying to paint himself
as something he is not. I think many would have warmly accepted the Mitt who
ran for governor of Mass not the one who is trying to be the next George Bush.
Serious miscalculation for such a smart guy.
`Your acts sound so loud ,that I cant listen your words. Thats why Mitt is the
MAN, right now all the problems in the U.S. depends of the MONEY, the military,
the healt care,the education , the inmigration, the national security, So ,
What does America Really needs? A man who really KNOWS How the economics works
and how to makes things done,Thata true leader , America needs Leaders not
Preachers, if you see him in long perspective He will overcome Hillary or Obama
no doubt about it,Because hes prepared for it,he has the right perpective to be
the president of the american people, and yes the american Values and this Holly
land with Him as a president will prevail!.(thanks for this space and yor
Enough of the negative attacks because of how much money someone has. There is
nothing wrong with spending your own hard earned money for your own campaign.
Romney has raised more money than what he has put into the campaign. For you
McCainiacs and Huckawannabes, Romney is a family man and has money. Why should
either disqualify him for President.
If any of the so-called Front-runners became President, it would be a sad day
indeed. They would keep us on the same path of destruction as the Bush and
Clinton years. Destroying our liberties and freedoms all in the name of Safety
and Security. This once-great Republic would go the way of the ancient Roman
Republic to be replace by an Dictator.
When people talk about Romney being a "self make man" it reminds me of the joke
about Bush II. "He was born on third base, and he thought he had hit
Why are Romney's Utah supporters such an angry bunch? Why so much hate? From what I'm reading people state very clearly why they dislike Romney.
That is THEIR OPINION. But rather than just stating your opinion of why you like
Romney you ATTACK AND SPEW PERSONAL HATE at the commenters. You call them
bigots, when there has been nothing said about Romney's faith, you call them
idiots and much worse. You call them all kinds of names that I would not
consider kind or loving.I thought Mormons were suppose to be a kind
and loving group of people. The examples I've seen during this campaign have
certainly shown me otherwise. I see it over and over. Just what
exactly is it that you're getting out of your sunday lessons?
Brilliant Liberal Larry. I couldn't agree more.
Birds of a feather flock together, so what else is new.
Funny stuff Liberal Larry.Our friends, the neoconservatives, have become
so enamored with the haves that they think they too are a part of that group.
Imagine for a moment a very recent meeting between two quiet, non-descriptive
operatives: one from the Hucky camp and one from McCain's. McCain's guy speaks
first, "You stay in the race, suck off the conservative vote from Mitt, and you
can be vp." Huck's boy says, "OK, promise?" "Promise" says McCain's guy. They
meet, they part. It is done.All done. The chiefs never meet. But
Huck stays around to split the conservative vote. McCain campaigns on and gets
confident by beating both Mitt and Huck. Mitt eventually quits. Huck continues
on, and looks stupid and... well, hucky. Huck gets vp nod and his job is to
carry the conservatives on his back, and to help hold the south. Mitt can't do
that, McCain knows that. I wonder? Did they do it by phone? Nah...
that is too traceable. Email? Hah!! Just two guys or such meeting at an
airport, or by car... somewhere "out there" and the deal was done. Do the GOP
tops know? Nah, but they can guess it.Who actually knows? Huck
plus one, McCain plus one or two.And that's a wrap folks.
What makes me sad is that most Mormons (I am one myself) simply flock to their
own kind. The only true conservative who has always been one with a perfect
voting record is Ron Paul. Didn't conservatives once believe in self reliance
and limited government? Our current Republican president has driven us down the
road to excessive spending, empire building, preemptive attacks, and currently a
nasty recession. Vote for a true Republican, a man who believes in honoring the
constitution and returning the power to the people as was designed by our
founding fathers. GO RON PAUL!
I wish more politicos would put up some of there own money to get elected. I
don't see Mitt spending his money as a bad thing, rather a signal that he is
committed this campain to the extent he is willing to put his own resorces
toward it.its put up or shut up!The Clintons would never put their
own money toward this because they are too selfish and self centered.
Mitt will do well on Tueday- he will probably win Utah and he and Utahns will be
happy as Utah is the center of the universe. The question after Tuesday is
whether he will continue. His money has done little so far (he outspent McCain
10-1 in Florida), but he has won Utah and the surrounding states- and Michigan.
The other question will be whether McCain will choose Huckabee as his running
mate- and if he does, what effect will this have on Utah politics? Will Utah run
away from a McCain/Huckabee ticket? Will it hurt Utah republicans in local
legislative races? IT will be interesting.
I heard a breakdown on the amount of money Rombot spent to win Iowa, which he
didn't. It came out to be $800 per vote! Keep spending Mitty. Then we can all be
assured you won't be back for another try.
Mitt spends much of his own money and gets mocked by the Mc-Aint supporters, yet
there are other candidats that spend tax payer funds and get a free pass. Love him or hate him, he's doing it with his own $$. At the end of the
day he can't buy votes. Yet what has Mc-Aint promised the
Govern-aitor, Guliani, and his other endorsers? No doubt, some federal funding
for freeways in CA, and other cash to clean up the wildfire mess. How about $$
to Gov Crist rescue the rich beach dwellers that our fine taxes will go to the
next time a hurricane hits in FL so they can have their homes rebuilt??? Think
about it folks.Mitt is our guy!
To Unbelievable:Kudos and thank you~ It seems odd to me that he
would be criticized for using his own money instead of mine and yours and
everyone elses... I think that he is un-greedy and he has proved generosity a
million times to alot of people who don't have as much as he does... I thak God
for people like him and pray people will get smart and vote for the best man for
the job, Mitt Romney. I have been wondering a lot lately what the
promises are that facilitated the endorsements. I wonder if it is so simple as
just not wanting the Mormon in the White House. If that is so, it is silly and
disgusting, bigoted and obnoxious...
