My my will you look at that, Mitt Romney's new fundraising totals may indeed
lead the crop of Republican presidential candidates, but those numbers are
nonetheless below expectations and causing concern among RINOs and the Kochs war
on the middleclass so called leaders. We all know the Kochs are winding up
their annual conference/retreat in Vail, Colorado, where the country's
hyper-conservatives including the terrible governors Rick Scott (Fla.) and Rick
Perry (Texas) gathered to talk shop and raise bucketloads of money to further
their dangerous war agendas against the middleclass and poor plus the elderly
and Veteran's. And these agenda's leaves the middle class without a government
protector in the face of laissez-faire capitalism. The "Romney
consultant" Martin references is Utah-based Don Stirling, the same Don
Stirling whose 2006 email sparked a firestorm about perceived ties between Team
Romney and the LDS Church. As if we don't know that already, today let's call
it, "Romney", the poster boy for DN, the LDS Church's news paper?.
Sounds better hey?. More honest sounding?. Who's fooling who here?. We were
not born yesterday you know. That's my "not my vote for Romney"
views. Like it or not Utah.
Money for campaigns is a necessary "evil" but it doesn't always
determine the winner. John McCain could have raised and spent $1 billion in the
last presidential election and he still would have lost to Barak Obama. This
time Obama has a record that he must defend and if the economy doesn't do a
complete turn around very soon it won't matter how much money he raises and
spends he will lose the election. His support among the key groups that elected
him last time, college students, seniors, independents and even jewish voters
has dropped dramatically.
More money wasted on a presidential candadate. That money could have gone to
feed an entire 3rd world country. I will vote for the Libertarian that does not
have a chance in heck winning. I'm not supporting Republicans or Democrats. I
have had enough of both of them. I will vote for freedom and the constitution.
Not wasting money on a candadate who will waste money in Washington. I hope Ron
Paul can win with support of we the people and not with money from corporations
and the easy way to win.
I blame it on the plethora of candidates that have no chance. Get them out and
it frees up the money.Ron Paul has no chance. He is too exentric
(the only word I can use that the Dnews will post).
Let's see, barack has neary 500,000 people that are looking for a tax break,
exemption from obamacare, the ability to run business in a foreign country etc.
The real winners are GE, GM, Louisianna, Nebraska, Nevada, McDonalds and other
states, businesses, politicians, that sold their votes to force everyone else
into bondage, while getting a get out of jail free card.barack can't
win with all of the money in the world. He can't even create a job printing
Trillion$. The average job that they "created" costs us merely
$250,000 per job.What would have benefited us more, is to give that
money to US citizens that are taxpayers. Divide it up. Let us spend or use it to
pay down our own debt or invest it. Instead the great and wise barack, nancy,
harry trio decided to save us!They tried to blame President George
Bush for their failure. They tried to blame the tea party for their failure.
They are now trying to blame republicans for their failure. They are also
blaming average americans for their failure.But he promised to never
pass on blame and to move forward....really?!
If you vote for Ron Paul you won't have to worry about wasting your money. With
him as President there wouldn't be any money to spend.
Corporations don't care if they get a republican or a democrat as long as they
are bug business friendly. Despite republican claims that Obama is a
socialist Obama has been very favorable to big business. The corporate money gap
is getting pretty slim. We may see 12 years of corpratist democrats.
Could the lack of fundraising have anything to do with a down economy? Hmm....
No, the lack of money has everything to do with no good candidates running.
Huntsman is the only Republican that might capture my vote, otherwise, it's
I agree the candidates are a major factor. Can't get excited about Romney. If
necessary I will vote for him because Obama would be an absolute disaster for
America. Anyone who loves America AND bothers to learn the facts about Obama
would learn his policies and the people around him are dedicated to bring down
capitalism and individual freedoms. If you cannot see that, you have not
investigated him. If you dont care, that is a problem. Last election I donated
lots of money to several candidates, but not this time. I am fed up with the
game and want to see strong results in cutting spending and a restoration of the
values upon which this nation was founded.
Mitt Romney on Job creation: From 2003-2007 job growth: 0.9%. In
rankings with the rest of the country MA was 47th in Job creation when
Mitt Romney was there. - Think Progress Travis Waldron 06/02/11 Mitt didn't even run for a second term in MA. Whereas his
Republican party: "According to the Pew Economic Policy Group,
an extension of all of the Bush tax cuts will cost $3.1 trillion over ten years,

Pagan seems incapable of understanding it was DEMOCRAT controlled legislature of
MA that makes the and passes the bills,The govenor can do nothing
if the legislature does nothing.Then, as usual, Pagan goes off
topic.This article seems mostly liberal media fearmongering, and
primaries do not even start till next year.
A re-Publican controlled House has done nothing.ergo, The President can do nothing if the re-Publican controlled House does nothing?
That's OK. The republicans, outside of the utah experience, aren't necessarily
supposed to or expected to succeed. All this money poured into scary ads with
monochrome unflattering pictures of democrats with voiceovers describing so and
so voting for tax increases may be, and should be, for naught. They're bereft of
ideas. It's not a crime if whatever romney or any of the rest of them raise
isn't enough. Maybe it isn't supposed to be.
"A re-Publican controlled House has done nothing.ergo, The President can do nothing if the re-Publican controlled House does
nothing?"America would be in a lot better shape if Obama did
nothing. Look what Obama doing "something" has gotten our country
into!We are safer with Obama doing nothing than doing something.
