Yes, Willard wants to change things. Change things back to the policies and
practiccs that caused the mess we're in now. Change things to make the
uber-wealthy even more favored and protected. Change things to make the
remainder of the people even more burdened. That is NOT the change we need. No
Social Security is going to be looked at for a reduction of benefits. The shape
of the Social Security fix will depend on who is elected in the coming
elections.Currently Social Security tax applies only to the first
$107,000 of income. Any money that a person makes at their work over $107,000 is
not taxed by Social Security. One possible way to fix Social Security would be
for the tax to apply to all earned income above $107,000. Another possible fix
would be to reduce the Social Security benefits.The fact is,
Republicans are most likely to reduce Social Security benefits, and continue to
not tax earned income above $107,000. Democrats are most likely to begin to tax
income above $107,000 and not reduce Social Security benefits.When
you go to the polls you should keep this in mind. Can you afford to get less in
Social Security than you are planning to get now? If not keep this in mind and
Romney said Thursday. "...... Republicans and Democrats will come
together." "Good luck with that. Much easier said than
The problem with Romney and frankly with the whole Conservative movement, is
that they just react and jump on whatever Obama is saying, instead of charting
their own course for the country. Reagan talked more about Conservative ideas
and how he would change Washington and the country. He was far less negative and
reactive than this campaign. The Conservatives are run today by Limbaugh and the
looney Religious Right, who still haven't decided on Romney. I say forget
them, since they have no choice who to vote for and go after the moderates in
the middle who will decide this election.
"The Conservatives are run today by...."Eastcoastcoug. You
forgot Grover Norquist who has backed the majority of the Republicans in
Congress into a corner. Including Mitt and Paul Ryan238
Representatives and 41 Senators have signed the pledge.Funny how the
pledge allows for spending increases but not tax increases. How can
you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?
since obama hasn't ever carried the mantel who will be handing it to Mitt?
Biden, Hillary, Nancy or Harry? Stunning lineup.
I love it when Mitt speaks. Mr. Obama's approval rating increases everytime
Mitt Romney continues his comedy of errors...So where is the actual
eastcoastcoug: and of course you dems never do that! Right? When you think
of this man refusing to meet with Netanyahu because he doesn't have time.
Yet, the leader of the free world has time to schmooze with Jc etc, and appear
on letterman where he doesn't even know the amount of the national debt
when he took office or now. The middle east is on fire & our paper
tiger missed security briefings both before & after the murder of our
ambassador. In fact missed a huge amount of briefings. Don't try to tell me
he read them on his ipod, that pix was staged after the fact. When
exactly does he have time to work with his cabinet (not this whole year) or to
sit down with his jobs council (again not at all). Thank goodness for Univision
at least they had some real reporters to question our (cough, cough) dear
leader.?WE need a real leader who will spend time doing the country's
business, not out playing golf all the time.
So this is a statement from Romney in 2007 “I believe that at this
time, to change Washington, it would be helpful to have somebody who comes with
more private sector skill, experience outside Washington. I don't think you
change Washington from the inside. I think you change it from the outside,"
Romney said in late 2007Talk about being a Hypocrite!
Wait for it....and flop.Back in 2007, Romney agreed that change does
not start in Washington. ROMNEY SAID, “I don’t think you
change Washington from the inside. I think you change it from the
outside,” he said on December 30, 2007. Now that = the white
flag of surrender? !I will never vote for a dishonest mormon for
president. Never. That's the last thing I want representing my faith.
Recording devices continue to be Romney's greatest threat. I bet you
won't hear Romney's quote in 2007 on FOX.
Star Bright said: When you think of this man refusing to meet with Netanyahu
because he doesn't have time. or ..or.. maybe he's tired of
Netanyahu (Nutty Yahoo) calling everyday telling him what America can do for
Israel.The rest of your post is just radio parroting which has
already been addressed multiple times.
to the libs that can't think straight, romney is an outsider, barry is not.
he is the president. duh.
The last persons that tried to change Washington got killed for it.
Unfortunately, the same fate likely awaits anyone that tries to do the same.
Democrat or Republican, two side of the same coin, we're not going to see
much change regardless of who is elected. Obama, who was elected on the promise
of change, just gave us more of the same and made the problems worse.
Furry,I have yet to hear Romney call for a return to the non-traditional
mortgages barney frank forced on fanny and Freddie. THAT is what got us into
our current mess. There you are untruthful when you say he wants a return to
the practices that got us into this mess. I suspect you also use MSNBC as your
main source of disinformation and therefore did not hear Romney when he said the
wealthy would continue to bear as large a portion of the tax burden as they do
now.Cjb,The problem with raising the level of income taxed for
SS is that the concomitant benefits are also increased, so SS’s
obligations increase. I do not know if there is a net gain by raising the
income level. Reagan and Tip O’Neal extended the life of SS by gradually
raising the eligibility age.Eastcoastcoug,I guess you missed
the plans Ryan and other conservatives put out, only to have them twisted and
lied about by the dems and their lap-dog media. To say they have presented no
plans is untruthful.
What we saw yesterday in the Univision interview is what happens when B.Obama
does not have a teleprompter or script and gets asked REAL questions.He lied, flailed, avoided, dodged, and distracted. His answer
regarding security at the Libya embassy? L.O.L.His answer regarding
Eric Holder and Fast/Furious. F.O.L (Flat out lie)
Deregulation and bad mortgage incentives began back in the Clinton era folks.All you people saying that the same things that got us into this mess
that are "Republican" or "Conservative" ideals are W.R.O.N.G.Do some real research and quit spouting off mainstream media talking
Here's a novel idea: Obama/Romney! They both think alike -
Romneycare/Obamacare, can't change Washington from the inside, but from the
outside, etc. That way, since Mitt can't seem to remember what he says and
flip-flops about, he could come out of the closet and let us know who he really
is, and we could get rid of Biden in the process.Obama/Romney 2012!
Has anyone else noticed that "real research" is when you agree with what
someone else believes?
"Grasping for a way to right his campaign . . . ." Don't you
all just love the way so-called journalists choose to shape public perceptions.
"Grasping" is a word full on negative connotations, mostly implying
desperation and panic. "To right his campaign" says that his campaign
has been wrong or capsized.If I were making any attempt to appear
unbiased, I would have written instead: "Romney challenges Obama's
position that Washington cannot be changed from the inside." I'm
really tired of watching the Deseret News printing such partisan position papers
against one favored so widely among its readers.
"...After Romney focused on the "can't change Washington from the
inside" segment of Obama's remarks, the president's campaign
countered quickly by noting that Romney said exactly that in 2007, when he was
running for the 2008 Republican nomination: "I don't think you change
Washington from the inside. I think you change it from the outside...".In private enterprise, there are seldom tapes of something the CEO said
which people then replay to let the CEO know she was a liar.romney
seems to feel safe with saying anything that comes into his mind...romney has been quoted as saying he didn't know what he said but whatever
he said he stood behind it.Voters are receiving daily clarification
of what romney really meant to say.After 8 years of campaigning, it
would seem romney might have an understanding of what he really means to say.Time is running out.
Lost in DCWhat do you say to someone who has read the Romney/Ryan plans
and concludes the "math" does not add up and the results would make
matters worse? They don't provide details that support their assumptions.
The Devil's in the details. There has not been a Republican since Nixon
that knew how to run the goverment like a business and balance the books. Regan
was just as bad as Obama when it came to spending money. I fear Romney/Ryan
would be worse than all of them based upon the plans and policies they said they
would pursue. Don't we all wish Clinton could serve another 8 years to
clean up this mess?
Romney is the last person who can find fault by any statement of any candidate,
since he, himself has taken both sides of every known issue.
Furry 1993: Go do some real research and reading instead of just spouting the
stuff produced by liberal press and the Democrats. Try reading some articles by
Thomas Sowell on Taxes and what has historically repaired a sluggish economy.
The presidents that were responsible for healing a sick economy were Calvin
Coolidge, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan. Some of the other presidents
including Franklin D Roosevelt, and other Democrat presidents have harmed the
economy because they tried to micromanage it. Coolidge, Kennedy, and Regan had
great success with getting a sluggish economy going by NOT micromanaging it. FDR
actually prolonged the Great Depression by trying to micromanage and provide
more government handouts. Mitt Romney has the best qualifications for the job,
unlike the current president who is an Amateur.Mitt Romney just posted the
last 20 years of taxes and Punk'd the liberal media and the liberal
administration and Harry Reid in particular. Find the following article:
"Democrats, Media Get Punk'd: Romney Releases Tax Returns" about
how much taxes and charitable contributions Mitt has paid over the last 20
years. Have you noticed how quiet the liberal press is about the release of
Romney's tax information?
Reading these comments makes me wonder if Utah has become a communist/socialist
state. Why anyone would support the failed policies of the socialist/democrat
party is beyond comprehension. I'm for Romney because at least we know more
about him than about the occupier in the WH. Be honest, how many really know
obuma? He is a walking lie. He lives a lie. He fabricates his own history to fit
the moment. For him, the murder of an ambassador is a 'bump on the
road.' The reckless spending of this guy is astounding. His placating to
terrorists is a sign of weakness. This is the best the community organizer will
ever do and yet we the people are foolish to believe in his rhetoric. He's
not even one of us. We have a socialist/marxist as president. Our Founding
Fathers are shaking their heads in disgust.
