Romney once bought an Indiana office supply company. He laid off ALL the workers
and then offered to hire them back at lower wages. Thanks for the
help Romney.Romney has 250 million in the bank from doing this over
and over again, firing workers and paying the rest of them less. That takes brillance? No it takes capital and a lack of empathy. That makes
heroes on Wall Street but I can't wait for him to splain himself in the
Desperate times for Romney... The tea party doesn't like him... the GOP doesn't
know what to do with him... Huckabee is on the attack...
Romney is a politician--or in other words, a professional liar who only seeks to
line his own pockets. See: every other politician in the history of the world.
Flip-flopper.Where were Romney's criticisms of Bush when the country
was losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of Dubbya's presidency? The
whole argument that Obama is not fixing Dubbya's mess quick enough is weak. 8
years of an unintelligent, unqualified, incompetant president will take years to
Romney has saved countless jobs for Americans by saving the companies that
employed them. Otherwise, these companies would have expired leaving their
employees without any job whatsoever.The private sector creates
jobs--not government. Let's get a guy who knows how to turn things around. The
healthier the economy the most workers are protected. It bring wages and
salaries up since employees have many more options for jobs and emloyers have to
compete for workers. Unfortunately, some people don't understand
how the economy really works, but Mitt does. He can turn things around if
anyone possesses that ability. Obama has no understanding and no background in
economics. that has become abundatly clear.Let's give Mitt a
chance. We've got to do something to stop the all the damage that Obama has
I don't support someone simply because he attends the same church I attend. I'm
tired of Romney. Can he just go away please.
Oh please Mitt - like you'd be ANY different.Look, the fed govt has
3 ways to come up with "money" to spend: borrow, print, and tax.
They're using all three to different degrees. In one respect, printing and taxes
are the same: we have less. In taxing, the money is taken from you. In printing,
the money you have buys less - same next effect. Borrowing, just transfers the
liability to the next guy (or generation).The problem isn't taxing -
it's SPENDING. And Mitt, here's where there's no difference between you and
Obama. Given the opportunity, you'll spend just like he is. You'll continue
these endless money-pit wars, expand govt. entitlement programs (think
Romney-care in MA), and continue business as usual. After all, really, you're
both part of the same party. Call it the Establishment Party, the War Party, the
Republicrat Party. You're all the same. Endless wars. Endless entitlements.
Endless restrictions on liberty and freedom.We keep throwing the
bums out every 4-8 years without realizing that the next two options are part of
the same team. Bankruptcy is the result nuless we wake up.
It is disgusting how politicions like Mitt will say or do anything to promote
their self interest by attacking others actions or politics but they never
present a better alternative. It is just a constant repeat of the same old
story: he is bad, I am good; give me your vote and money. If, indeed, you are
better then tell us how you are going to do things different and better and
maybe we will believe you.
I do not like the tone Mitt Romney is now taking. "Obama Misery
Index." Ugh. I think Romney could state his proposed policy in a more
How many jobs has Romney shipped overseas in the last 10 years?
The Government doesn't create jobs? Weird, Hill AFB is either 1st or 2nd behind
the church in employment in the state, and if the Republican get all the cuts to
Government they want, it is estimated 700,000 jobs will be lost. That is less
money to the treasury and less money spent to private businesses. The war hawks
and contractors could probably tell you that government creates jobs--just ask
Halliburton and all the war profiteering they have done at the expense of the US
Government. I knows it's a big talking point on the right, but it is far from
the truth. Based off of the last 10 years, I don't see the private
sector adding more jobs from the tax bonuses they received. If any jobs were
created, they were sent overseas. Once unions are destroyed, the public will be
at the mercy of the CEOs, and judging from their record, we will not be treated
well--remember all the fraud and schemes that created the bailout of Wall
Street? Have we seen any convictions of them other than the Madoff guy? Let
them eat cake 2.0 here we go!
I find it so amusing these Republicans who want to kill Obama for his stimulous
bill, which actually did SAVE thousands of jobs, because he isn't fixing their
mess quick enough! Your bad policies of deregulation, lowering taxes, promoting
jobs being shipped overseas, basically pushing the GREED agenda of Wall Street,
lost those jobs that Mitt believes Obama should have already gotten back! What Mitt is in favor of is less regulation so corporate America and
Wall Street can conintue profiting billions at the expense of American families.
He'd like to see Unions busted so companies can create lower paying/benefited
jobs for American families, or just ship those jobs overseas. Mitt is also in
favor of lowering tax rates for companies so they can make more for their pocket
books. Corporations make up about 6-7% of all Federal Revenue paid, while
Individuals/Payroll Taxes make up the rest. I guess he'd like to see that
number closer to 0% for Corporations?
It's revealing to see the brief expressions of hate and vitriol from
contributors on this message board. The upside from a Mitt Romney is he is not
a career politician or a leech like so many out there who think public service
is a lifetime pursuit. Before, during, and after elective office they turn to
lobbying and on the fringes of politics for the duration. Look at the reality
of this you people. Liberalism and attacks on personal accountability and self
determinism has eroded our public politicians lives over many generations. The
fact that government at all levels takes up to and in some cases consumes over
50% of the national treasury is just appalling. Pitting the so-called haves
against the havenots have gotten us to the point of bankruptcy at the federal
and state level. Give people like Mitt Romney a break. We see people
criticizing and belittling him for anything from his religion to his actions in
the business world to his time as governor of Massachussetts. It's all so crass
and beneath the reality of things. What we are doing in American is chasing
anyone with the capacity from even considering political office.
Hey look...all five liberals in Utah decided to comment on Mitt Romney. Did the
daytime television stations go of the air? Did Oprah get cancelled?
What hurts families the most is war. Let's hear Mitt's plan to avoid it in the
future, unless he's too concerned to think what that would do to his portfolio.
As for unemployment, Mitt knows, but hopes you don't, is that employment is a
tailing economic indicator, and that employment doesn't simply turn up by
putting another MBA in the White House, even if he IS rich.
Let's let Rodney King be the JUDGE hereCa, Ca, Ca, Ca, Can't we all
just get along?.Hey Utah, what one is it ?On the HEADS
side of the coinIn a calculated move, President Barack Obama is
throwing his arms around Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman Jr.NOW, on the
tails side of the coinMitt Romney rips President Barack Obama's
economic policy for hurting families.
How does the governor that made GAY marriage legal complain about the actions of
anyone when it comes to 'hurting families'?
Before Obama's presidency was 6 months old Romney wrote a book,(No Apology for
greatness),, HAHAHA LOL. He's a legend in his own mind. He is the ultimate
flipflopper. He will say or do anything, to get elected. He is a liar. Ilove how
the memory of so called conservatives is so small. Dont any of you remember the
last 6 months of George Bush's presidency?? We were losing 750,000 jobs each
month. The economy was in freefall, the financial collapse, the housing
collapse. Somehow Mitt, and his cohorts, cant remember who is responsible for
the mess we are in and are trying to get out of, despite the obstructionism, and
lies from the so called conservatives. The republicans said they would
concentrate on the budget and jobs if we elected them in 2010. So far they,
Extended the Bush fiasco tax breaks, and added 800 billion to the defecit.
Jobs,,,, They are attacking workers nationwide and threatning layoffs. I guess
history repeats itself. The 2010 election nationwid was a collosial mistak. most
of America is realizing that now. I say Recall the GOP.All of them.
The Republicans just elected are starting their own agenda hurting the citizens
@ All You Romney Haters:I wonder how many of your "facts"
are only hear say with no substance. As regards the term "Obama Misery
Index", to me that is being too nice. We the people are in misery and it is
getting worse each day under Obama - he knows nothing and has no real solutions
to our gigantic problems. His solution along with nearly every other Democrat is
to TAX and SPEND. Hallelujah for the Republican Wisconsin governor and his QUIT
SPENDING attitude. Why do you think CA is a disaster zone??? -
Answer: Democrat politics. When are you people going to wake
up???????Is Romney perfect - maybe not, but he would be a breath of
cool fresh air as compared to what we have now. When will you people start to
use your head for something other than a hat rack?
The GOP has nothing credible to offer in the candidate department. It's really too bad that all the money that will be poured into their futile
attempt at the presidency can't actually go into helping the economy somehow.
We have an economic meltdown because of the rich. They were rewarded before the
meltdown with tax breaks to "stimulate" the economy but it didn't work
because they used the tax breaks to push American Jobs overseas. Now the
American worker is having to pick up the slack yet if they are union members
they are losing what little they had to hold on to. Now Romney, a rich
republican who made his money getting tax breaks and laying off workers, is
saying that Obama is hurting families. It's just a Repubilican snow job because
they are the ones that have hurt the average American families with their
economic policies, their stone walling of recovery efforts, their anti-union
policies, their anti health care retoric, and their constant efforts to
Dearest libsRomney makes some good points about your guy, the President.
Why don't you answer the accusations insted of just throwing mud at Romney? Do
you agree or disagree with his points regarding Barry? Please enlighten us with
your snide wisdom. Is Obama anti-family or not?
You have to be kidding me, Romney. How far will you go with the demagoguery and
deception. It was your party that gave us the recession. It was your party
that fights every step to help the middle class. It is your party that creates
every possible advantage for the wealthy (like you) and perpetrates the system
of corporate socialism that is draining the middle class. I was opposed to you
before. Now I will do everything I can to see you are not elected President and
I will support President Obama. You are part of the conspiracy to fool the
American people to vote for your kind while you take away our future.
Let's compare backgrounds - Mitt Romney - his job before entering the political
arean was saving companies from going under (hence the layoffs some other
commentors have referred to may HAVE BEEN NESSECARY to save the company), he
saved the Olympics too, turning it from a scandal packed circus to a world class
presentation that UT can be proud of having hosted. Now Obama -
senate (HOW MANY OF YOU MISSED THE MEMO THAT HE WAS A SENATOR WHEN BUSH WAS IN
OFFICE), community orginizer, fully indoctorinated in dirty Chicago style
politics....I know which man I'd prefer as president, how about you?
KM - are you seriously asking a question here. He is obviously anti family.
Just look at him. He has only been married once, has his mother in law living
with him, takes time off to be with his kids. Clearly the many doesn't
understand family at all! So from what I am to understand here, you
are blamming Obama for the recession that started in 2006... right? And anyone
who follows economics knows that unemployment is a trailing indicator, so the
job losses that began in 2006 had their roots in economic problems that were
created a year or two in advance of that.Claiming that Obama ( or
Bush for that fact ) is anti family because the country headed into a recession
is about as logical as saying Bush as anti New York because he let the terrorist
attack. It is a simply silly proposition. There are many factors for which the
president has little control - either Republican or Democrat. And unemployment
numbers do not equate to ones feelings or value toward family.Romney
is showing himself to be just another who spews negative rhetoric rather thatn
promoting solutions. We get the problem, what's the solution Romney?
to Wildcat. HAFB is not the number one employer in the State of Utah. It is
not second. The number one employer is the State of Utah. Second is IHC and
third is HAFB. I'm glad we have these government jobs, but everyone can't work
for the government. That is called Socialism. We need business as well.
People may not like big greedy business, but business does create more jobs than
government. I like greedy business before I like greedy government.
Romney is the best chance for the USA to get back on track economically and as
far MOMENTUM Again! If he can get some of his programs to take affect you will
see things move in the right direction, if he gets most of his programs to take
affect you will see changes within 6-8 months once the log jam is freed and the
river can flow again! Soon you will see hiring again, and growth, and building
by private business, the housing will take more time to recover, but it will
recover, all his ideas WILL WORK! They worked right after Wilson left office!
They worked right after the Roosevelt years ended, and they worked right after
the Carter years ended! They will work again, and America will become the
strongest economic power house on the face of the earth once again! We will lead
in education, inovation, economic growth, Military power, and we will get a grip
on the budge once we get rid of the crooks in politics now and get Tea Party
Candidates IN OFFICE who will stick to 2 to three terms and LEAVE! Like it was
intended from the beginning!
