Romney Tells Obama To ‘Suck It Up’

Romney Tells Obama To ‘Suck It Up’
UPI
GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is tired of President Barack Obama being on the golf course and on vacation while Americans are suffering.

In a recent interview with Bill Cunningham on WLW radio in Ohio, Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney expressed frustration with President Barack Obama’s jet-setting, leisurely lifestyle.

“Do you think the President’s example was followed by the GSA [General Services Administration] in recent scandals about the Las Vegas trips and more? Is that a good example for government federal employees to have as their President when he plays so much golf and vacations so much?” asked Cunningham.

Romney answered: “I must admit, I scratch my head at the capacity of the President to take four hours off on such a regular basis to go golfing. I remember how the Democrats used to be so critical of George W. Bush for playing occasional golf. He doesn’t begin to play the kind of golf that Barack Obama has, but we don’t hear much about that from the mainstream media. I would think you could kind of suck it up for four years, particularly when the American people are out of work.”

Cunningham asked Romney to “make a commitment… that when you’re the President that your family will not take vacations to such an extent … and that you will not take a salary until you have a balanced budget.”

Romney responded: “You’ve got some good ideas. I’ll give them consideration.”

    This kind of stuff gets Romney off message. Forget the leisure time of the president, forget earmarks and foreign aid, forget Congressional salaries and perks, forget “Dog Gate.” All these are merely a drop in the bucket compared with the Federal debt, the stifling of the economy and the socialist express train we’re now riding.

    Concentrate on the unemployment rate, the printing of fiat dollars, the roadblocks to energy production and small business formation. In short, concentrate on the abject failures of this administration, and if you will, resurrect the old question, “are you better off today than you were four years ago?”

    • Sirian

      Vigilant,
      They love to deposit distractions as much as they can. It keeps the “con” working better. . . :(

    • eddie47d

      All this muckraking is going to do is drag out all the Romney’s vacations and who spent what.Does anyone really think it would matter if Romney didn’t take a Presidential salary with the millions he has in the Cayman Islands. Will he say OUCH that is really going to hurt ? Either way it would be more smoke and mirrors.

      • Meteorlady

        So Eddie – I wasn’t aware that Romney had money socked away somewhere. I thought he gave out his tax return and it was all capital gains from investments. You remember what investments do right? They help businesses expand and help retired people get money to stay retired?

      • Vigilant

        “All this muckraking is going to do is drag out all the Romney’s vacations and who spent what.”

        Romney didn’t do it on the taxpayers’ dollars.

    • Jim in NY

      The Question is are yu better off today than 3 years and 3 months ago. I live off my weallth and I have to say most certainly I am better off now. The Nasdaq has doubled in those 3 plus years and the Dow is up some 75%. People forget how bad things were in late 2008/early 2009.

      • Ellen

        Jim, Your comment would imply that you only got into the stock market after the 2008 crash. Those of us who’ve been in the market for years have not necessarily seen our specific stocks return to their pre-2008 prices. In other words, we’re still sitting on a loss. This is a lot like saying your house is worth more, but forgetting to mention you bought it as a foreclosure last year. Meanwhile, any of us who bought a house after 2003 are sitting on a loss. Further, food and gas prices (things we all use daily) are about double what they were when Obama took office, so your extra wealth must be really awesome to overcome those. Kudos to you for being better off, but you are definitely in the minority on this topic.

      • USMC CAPTAIN

        Jim, for a wealthy guy you are sure dumb!

        JIM, THE ONLY REASON THAT THE NASDAQ IS AT SUCH A HIGH LEVEL PRESENTLY IS THE RECENT HIGH RATE OF INFLATION OF THE U. S. DOLLAR THAT OBAMA HAS CREATED BY HIS FIVE TRILLION OF MORE GOVERNMENT DEBT AND HIS MASSIVE PRINTING OF THE DOLLAR! YOU WILL NOT BE SINGING THE SAME TUNE WHEN IT WILL TAKE A “WHEELBARROW OF MONEY TO BUY A LOAF OF BREAD”! TURN WHAT YOU HAVE INTO SOMETHING TANGENTIAL THEN HIDE IT AS FAST AS YOU CAN JIM.

      • Ted Crawford

        Ellen, I share your experiences and so does everyone I know, which simply point out the fact that ole Jim is just a Progressive plant!

      • Jim in NY

        Ellen and Ted Crawford – The question is about wealth now vs Jan 2009. My wealth is much greater now. True I may have been most wealthy sometime in 2007 but Obama was not President from 2007 through early 2009. My wealth grew the most during the CLinton years and suffered during the Bush years. That is a fact. And my welath now is a good bit higher than it was when Bush left office.

      • Meteorlady

        Beware the stock market and treasuries. They are up because money is going down in value. That’s pretty simple….. true inflation is now about 8% and climbing if gas and food were counted. The real U6 unemployment rate (you know where they actually count everyone?) is currently 14.7% and climbing.

        I have a small business and it’s not doing well. Yet they want me to pay more taxes and add more reporting regulations on me. I have had a increase of 17% in my employee health care plan premiums because of the “added mandated coverages” in the new health care bill. My insurane agent actually told me that they are not supposed to reveal why they have raised rates anymore, but mine will go up again next year of the plan stands.

        With that said, if I have to increase premiums, I will simply close my doors and walk away, or I will lay off two workers to pay for the rest, or …. I will just drop the health care and let them get government health care per the intent of the bill.

      • Vigilant

        USMC CAPTAIN and Meteorlady have valid points. A MASSIVE debacle is on the way that will wipe out Jim and others unless they shelter their assets.

        The debt load is unsustainable and we are technically bankrupt as a nation. Which of the foreign debtors will be the first to say “we will no longer carry your debt load?” The Federal Reserve has virtually guaranteed the financial downfall of America. Not if, but when that happens, the tsunami will carry off many more boats than just Jim’s.

  • jopa

    Vigilant;The Conservatives do not want to talk about the economy, jobs, oil production or small business.The President does talk about them and it looks bad for the Republicans now that America is beginning to shine once again.Are we better off today than the end of the Bush term? Of course we are, America was going down the drain fast and Obama was able to turn it around.

    • Paula

      OMG! You drank the Koolaid! Turning around?? This administration is THE most corrupt with chicago thuggery and they and Obummer have indulged in anextravagant and over-indulgant lifestyle at the expense of taxpayers. They’ve played with the numbers and think if they say the same lie enough we – through the lamestream media, will believe them.

      • Robert Smith

        Actually Pauyla the Bush administration set the pace. Check this out: “The administration also argued Friday night that the cost of the Western Regional Conference increased sharply under the Bush White House — from $93,000 in 2004 to $323,855 in 2006 to $655,025 in 2008, then $840,616 in 2010, or just 28 percent under Obama.”

      • JUKEBOX

        Most of the ones that are better off today compared to 2008 are people like Obama, Reid, Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, and the government bureaucrats like that clown in the hot tub with the GSA.

      • Meteorlady

        Robert – once again you give facts about Bush, but go no futher. What about Clinton and back? I’ve talked to lots of people that are retired and it’s all the same story. It’s corruption from the very top and it’s been around a long time.

        We deserve better……

    • rb

      Where do you live? The unemployment rate here is still 11%. Skilled labor is being offered $10 an hour with no benefits for work. Food prices are up more than 40% while fuel prices have stayed pretty much the same average as under Bush II second term. This is a rural community where the local food pantry still serves 1100 families a month and mobile trucks feed people county wide on a weekly basis. The local thrift stores are booming. The local non thrift store retailers are closing their doors.
      All this and BHO flies around on AF-1 at $128,000 PER HOUR to operate like no other president in the history of our country flushing millions of taxpayer dollars down the toilet to spend on himself. Gotta love that “change” . Here here for the elitists!

      • DDavis

        RB, your words mirror my own thoughts about where I live. Good entry level jobs with benefits are long gone, it seems.

        And there is this tell-tale thrift-store boom the like of which I’ve never seen in my lifetime.

        In the town closest to me there is only one clothing store left, and it isn’t one that I shop because it caters to plus-sizers more than anything else. K-Mart and Wal-Mart are still here; but who wants to buy everything at either of these?

        Thrift stores are now a thriving business and new ones are showing up everywhere. Actually, for lack of anywhere else to shop, I’ve discovered that I can find very good quality jeans that look brand new for about half (or a little more) than I’d pay for those really thin, cheap stretchy things that pass as jeans at the two “marts”.

        I say “about half (or a little more)” because the thrift stores are now selling in such incredible volume that people are complaining about their prices going up…And THEY ARE!

        It’s just crazy right now, and it’s getting worse.

        I know one thing. I will vote against Obama, period. I’d rather I liked the man I vote for, but I’ll vote for anyone (Romney…bleccch) before I’d let Obama have my vote because I’d given up and wouldn’t go to the polls.

        Problem is, I’m really not sure it’s going to make much of a difference at this point. Could be too much of the US is already gone over the cliff and momentum alone will keep pulling us down.

        Still, we can try.

      • Karolyn

        Wow! You have expensive thrift stores. I can buy great quality clothing for $2 here (pants and tops). Just yesterday I got a brand new pair of Eastland boots for $6. I remember when the recession first started and there were all the spots on TV telling peple how to shop cheap. I laughed at the time because that’s the way I’ve always shopped.

    • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

      Jopa the shine you are seeing glimmering in front of you is the KY Obama has oosed on us and is getting ready to spread over the American tax payers A$$es.

    • Ellen

      Jopa, Can you be serious? Republicans are working toward a better economy. An example is the 30 jobs bills passed in the House, but the Senate refuses to look at. Obama claims oil production is up during his presidency, but that is disingenuous since Obama shut down government oil leases. The great rise in oil production is despite Obama’s efforts to curtail it and is all due to private companies. The Great Liar then goes on TV and takes credit for it. As far as the improved economy, have you not read that our small growth has stalled? Our economy is not improving at all. Businesses aren’t expanding and creating jobs because of the economic uncertainlty of Obama’s tax increases and Obamacare. Businesses are sitting on billions of dollars that they can’t risk in this economy. Are we better off? Hell no!!!

      • Meteorlady

        You are correct – businesses like mine have no room for expansion. Obama can tell people all he wants that things are better, but us small business owners are finding that people don’t have extra money to spend. So…. I’m not in business to create a product, I’m in business to sell a product and that’s not happening right now.

        I can also get all the credit that I want right now for expansion, but why would I when I’m loosing customers because they are running low on cash from inflation and unemployment.

    • Chuck Higgins

      You must be looking through rose colored glasses

    • Debbie

      In what universe is a REAL unemployement rate of 15% indication of a shining economy? How can anyone say that when we have a rapidly disappearing middle class.

    • Nancy in Nebraska

      Oh jopa, the only things that have been turned around are the ways they calculate unemployment, inflation etc… When you change the way statistics are calculated things appear to be better than they are. They say that unemployment has dropped. In reality it has increased tremendously. They just took millions of people out of the system. They just don’t count them anymore. Ask those people if things have turned around. They have changed the way they calculate inflation. They tell us that inflation stands somewhere around four percent. I go to the grocery store every week. I know that the price of food has risen at least twenty percent. When I go to the gas station, I know that inflation is more than four percent. The government has spent trillions of dollars to disguise the fact that we’re broke, bankrupt. They’ve been trying to put off the big economic crash but it is coming. At some point, China will stop loaning us endless amounts of money and they will not be able to pretend any longer. I believe that day is rapidly approaching. How long they can continue the charade depends upon how long China will allow it.

      • ChristyK

        China has already quit lending us money. In order to keep interest rates, on our debt, unnaturally low, last year 61% of our debt was bought by the Fed. If the Fed wasn’t buying our debt the interest rate would’ve gone up significantly. If our rate got anywhere near Greece’s rate, we wouldn’t be able to pay the interest, much less pay for anything else like defense or social security. Looks like we either inflate our way into destruction or default. Either way, it doesn’t look pretty.

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        China has not quit lending us money. They are not buying as many bonds as they used to, not enough to cover the amount that we are spending but they haven’t cut us off yet. That is why the fed is printing more dollars and loaning them to us. I read that the fed is loaning us forty something percent but maybe you are right on the sixty. It’s been a while since I read about it. Last month we had a coffee with our senator and he used a forty something figure also. China and the other BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia,India, and China) have already begun trading with currencies other than the dollar. Many of the middle east oil countries have begun selling oil for gold or other currencies. So much for the petrodollar. The International Bank has called for a change in the international monetary unit or international reserve currency. We are very close to disaster! When China cuts us off completely you will see a complete collapse of the dollar. The only reason that China continues to loan us money is that they own so many dollars that if the dollar collapsed, they would lose a fortune. They are slowly and quietly trying to divest themselves of dollars by buying gold. They are buying up as much as they can. If they dump their dollars too quickly they won’t be worth anything. China’s plans are to back their currency with gold and have it become the international monetary unit or reserve currency. The day that that happens or the day thay China refuses to buy our debt, we are done!!! The dollar will not be worth the paper it’s printed on!

      • Meteorlady

        WE owe China and they have been cashing in our bond and treasuries to buy gold. They are the largest gold producer in the world and all that gold is required to be sold back to the government.

        China is quietly and in a lot of cases secretly, buying up gold at record rates. They will eventually corner the market and their currency will be the new reserve currency. This is what all the liberal/social programs have done to this country. Put is into massive debt which we will never be able to pay, for programs that are massibe failures.

      • Meteorlady

        The Federal Reserve does not actually “PRINT” money. They “loan” money to banks.

        The Federal Reserve serves as the lender of last resort for banks that cannot obtain credit elsewhere, and Federal Reserve interest rates set the national standard for flow of credit. It took over this role from the private sector “clearing houses” which operated during the Free Banking Era; whether public or private, the availability of liquidity was intended to prevent bank runs.

        A lender of last resort contributes to the temptation for an institution to take on more risk. A lender of last resort provides a safety net to insulate the institution from the full consequences of their risk. The lender does not underwrite the consequences but could hide imminent business failure by the extension of credit. This type of system extremely bad because it takes away economic consequences of bad decisions and allows the practice of fractional reserve lending to exist without the consequences associated with its existence.

        The credit extended to these failing institutions by the Federal Reserve is new money that is created out of thin air from the Federal Reserve. In it’s clearest understanding, it is stealing the value of the money printed prior to create new credit based on nonexistent deposits. There is no need for this if we had sound full reserve banking.

    • Patty

      Maybe we should start calling Obama “Draino” then, because everything is going down the drain FASTER because of HIM. I lost my job over a year ago because one of his council members gave my job away to someone overseas. He has at least TWO council members doing that too, mine was the OTHER one. Of course when we become socialist or communistic, which is what Obama is striving for, none of this will matter, we’ll all be in the same sinking boat.

    • s c

      There you go again, comrade ‘j.’ It must be tough having a DP (depleted uranium) head like yours. No matter what anyone says, you can’t remember how to tell a conservative from a ‘Republican.’
      Romney needs to focus on the issues, and make Obummer look like the utopian shill that he’s always been. No record, no talent and no compassion. That’s your false W H ‘God,’ comrade ‘j.’

      Barack Obama’s 34 Month Report Card; by Rich Carroll

      “Mr. Hope and Change wants to create a nation humbled;
      humiliated, casting-aside capitalism and individual freedoms
      for one where we the people are government controlled. This
      would be a system that genuflects mediocrity, steals
      personal aspiration and opportunity, and punishes those who
      strive to succeed.

      A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated
      was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59,
      a 100.6% increase. The number of food stamp recipients has
      risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878,
      a 35.1% jump. Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during
      the same 34 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000.
      Staggering hope and change isn’t it?

      American citizens living in poverty have risen 9.5% from
      39,800,000 to 43,600,000, and the number of unemployed has
      jumped almost 25% from 11,616,000 to 14,485,000 as of August
      31, 2011. The number of unemployed blacks has risen from
      12.6% at the end of George Bush’s term to 15.8% today, a
      25.4% increase, and finally, our national debt is up 43.2%
      from 10.627 trillion to 15,022 trillion.”

      So you may want to blame Bush, but you need to go a littler further than Bush. Clinton signed Fair Housing, appointed crooks to head Fannie and Freddie, and signed for the repeal of Glass-Steagall opening up the derivatives market. When housing failed it brought down the mortgage market, the stock market, the housing industries lost millions of jobs, credit got tight and we are seeing the results of banks loaning and guaranteeing loans for more money than they had on hand.

  • Doc Sarvis

    He is not the nominee yet, presumptive nominee is the accurate term. I love his quote at the end; ” I’ll give them consideration.” Who can’t see through that?

    • Meteorlady

      He was the nominee when he stepped out of the running in 2008 so McCain could run. BOTH parties are corrupt…. time for a new campaign law and some action on the two party system in this country.

  • Doc Sarvis

    Mitt doesn’t have a favorite football team, but he knows a lot of the owners. HA!

  • Janet Wocicki

    I’m scared to death that the same people who put Mr. Big “O” in office is going to do it again. We are in horrible shape now, what will we be doing in 4 years if that happens? I shudder to think. You people are so quick to blame Bush when the real blame belongs with the Democratic Senate and Democratic House who put us in this mess and one of those senators was Obama, himself. Sure is nice to blame someone else but eventually the truth will win out – I hope!

    • RR Worker

      You are absolutely correct Janet. Everyone blames Bush for the policies a super majority of Democrats forced upon us beginning in January 2007 when they took unprecidented control of our Government all the while shutting Republicans out of any and all debates just like they did with Ozerocare. There wasn’t even the option for Bush to veto any of this because the Dem’s majority was so big. He was just along for the ride and got the blame for all of it. The Dems planned this to destroy the Republican party so as to have complete control for the fundamental change from a free market system to the socialist system they have us on now.

      • Ted Crawford

        I don’t believe that the fact that his veto would have been easily overridden excuses Bush from not exercising it!

      • Meteorlady

        Bush should not have signed the budget they presented to him. He should have also vetoed a lot of things that came over his desk even if they were going to over-ride it. It would have been better press…..

  • http://yahoo.com Jan

    It would be very worthwhile if some of you would at least check out Ron Pauls websites and actually find out what he is saying. NOT what the media says he is saying, if they bother to say anything about him at all, other than total balderdash info, but the real facts. Unbeknownst to many people there is still a huge interest in what RP says and has been saying for years. Want someone who doesn’t change according to the weather? Try the real thing for a change. Romney is not the only Rep. hopeful out there inspite of the attempts of main stream media to make him so. Hmmmmm, wonder why that is? Could it be that Ron Paul actually has some answers worth considering? Of course you will never know if you don’t check it out for yourself. Don’t just take my word for it. Do your own homework.
    J

    • Earl, QUEENS, NY

      These delusional Ron Paul supporters are such wishful thinkers!! He’s unelectable!! He can’t seem to get more than 10% of the votes in any primary. However, it is important to consider that that 10% could make a difference if this old crackpot Paul runs as a third party spoiler. He WILL lose!! And he could easily take away enough votes from the GOP to get BHO re-elected. Is that what these pro-MoRon Paul idiots really want????? I understand people’s frustrations with the GOP establishment, RINOs and moderate GOP wimps. But the solution is not a nincompoop like MoRon Paul. What we need is to repeat 1980 and 1984, when a bold outspoken conservative takes control of the party, wins two landslides, and is a success. Why repeat the mistakes of 1976, 1996 and 2008?? GET REAL!!

      • Amanda Vasquez

        Ron Paul is unelectable? Sounds like the same rhetoric the media pundits spew to deter people from voting for him. Maybe if all the people who say, ” I like Ron Paul, he’s a good guy, consistent but he’s unelectable,” would vote for him, he would get elected. You seem to be forgetting about the delegates–there are very few states that are winner take all. California and Texas, two of the biggest states with most the most delegates have yet to vote. Ron Paul has Rallies with thousands of attendees. In Berkley, he had about 7-8,000 come to see him speak. This is everywhere he goes. Remember Reagan won due to a brokered convention. Please state why Ron Paul is a “crackpot” or “nincompoop,” as you so eloquently put it? Is he crazy because he will cut 1 trillion in the first year and balance the budget by the third year? Is he crazy for predicting the housing bubble? Is he crazy for wanting to end the wars(unConstitutional) that is just keeps the spending sprees going, oh, I see maybe he’s crazy for wanting to have a full audit of the FED–you know those guys that keep printing out the money, devaluing the dollar and causing inflation, or maybe he’s crazy about ending the War on Drugs–cutting another expense payed for by the taxpayer(billions being spent yearly with no change); non violent offenders lives being ruined for possession of a drug(black and Hispanic being main targets), is he a “crackpot” because he says the income tax is theft and that people should be keeping all of the fruits of their labor, maybe he’s a “nincompoop” because he’s warned and been consistent for over 30 years, never changing his position because it’s popular. I will not vote for the lesser of two evils, because quite frankly that is exactly what has been going on for every election cycle–in essence you vote the same guy in with a different label, a D or a R. Romney is the same as Obama as Obama is to Bush as Bush was to Clinton and so on. They either want to take away monetary freedom or personal freedom, they all love to spend, just on different stuff and I’ll renege on that because it seems they both like spending on wars. Bush implemented the “Patriot Act”, Obama continued it as will Romney if he somehow won. Obama implemented the NDAA and Romney supports it. They are all cut from the same cloth, and the media is just as guilty, since they push only the establishment candidates down people’s throat. These people, whether Obama continues or Romney gets the nomination will continue to erode away the people’s liberties, putting out economy in jeopardy and expanding government. Ask yourself this Earl, Why is that the Democrats and Republicans both have an issue with Ron Paul? When both parties attack him, then you know he’s your guy. He’s the only one who will truly bring change, stay true to his words and uphold his oath to the Constitution. I suggest you do your own research and look at Ron Paul’s Restore America Plan.

      • Meteorlady

        Then answser me this…..
        Who is the most honest and hard working person campaigning right now for the Presidency?
        Who will end the financial hold the Federal Reserve has on this country?

        If Ron Paul had all the media time that Romney and Obama have would he be up in the poles? Probably yes…. If Ron Paul were to take Super PAC money and money from the likes of Goldman-Sachs and the other manipulators would he stand a chance then?

        Do you really believe that we have control of our political system anymore? Do you believe that you are getting a fair election?

        I’ll check back…..

    Romney can’t get “on” topice because he is an empty shell. He has no substance and has yet to provide us any reason to vote for him. How about telling us what you will do. All we hear is that you are a wonderful business man. As Governor of MA you signed into law a PERMANENT BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS! Way to go governor…. show us some substance!

    • Meteorlady

      Romney, like Obama, is just another hand picked person that is supported by the big money banking interests and the New World Order advocates.

      People just can’t take honesty and integrity so they believe the press and discount Ron Paul …. but yet they want honesty and integrity so what’s going on in this country?

  • luvzforplay

    Lets face it neither candadate is up to the standards we have come to live with and consider the norm, but if Obama gets in for four more years I think he will turn the country into a monarchy and from the looks at what the Congress and Senate also the Supreme Court has let him get away with I figur they will keep sitting on thier hands till its too late !! The one guy that is a real man of the people is Ron Paul , and since he will not take money from big business or anyone else he hasent got a chance. Our only hope is that The elected officials will wake up and remember there oath of office and nail Obama on the High Crimes and Misdomeaners he has allready committed !!!

      We’ve had a continous line of mediocre candates for a lot of years now. It’s the two party system and they way they hand pick who we can “democratically” vote for. It’s sad and it needs to be changed. We also need to get the big money out of our elections if we ever want our country back and our representatives to represent us, instead of the world’s monied bankers.

    This administration is so corupt. Most folks do not realize that the markets are up do to the liquidity the FEDS have pumped into the system. The dollar is on weak a footing because of it and when we loose our coveted reserve curency status most commodities will have their prices sky rocket. After worlld war one Germany was so in debt for war reparations that they did the same thing. Printed money. We all know what happened after that. I am in absolute shock to see what goes on at the FED auctions. China is not the biggest buyer of our national debt. Its the US government. What a ride this administration is taking us on. What, and the people are worried about dogs, and birth control. Give me a break. The train is heading for the cliff at 120 miles per hour and no one knows where the brakes are. Help us all.

      If anyone wants to see where this country is headed, just go back and look at the history of Germany during the mid and late thirties. Obama is following the very same Socialistic principles of the German leadership, without the aggresive military behavior, which may come later, if he is reelected and has free reign.

    Not so fast Romney, … Ron Paul swept the MN conventions, and I can’t wait for Texas and Calif. results. Ron Paul is the only one with the courage and intelligence to give us back our peace, balanced budget and liberty! And maybe we’ll all be able to get unshackled from the banksters and Federal Reserve! The lamestream media and elite want Romney to further their conquest for a New World Order/enslavement (see UN’s Agenda 21)—-the people want/need Ron Paul!

    • Meteorlady

      There is also the question of where the loyalty lies with Santorum delegates. Ron Paul is correct – if you have the courage to run, you need to finish the job once you start.

  • BunRoe

    OMG!! .. Romney responded: “You’ve got some good ideas. I’ll give them consideration.”

    I’ll give them consideration? STILL no commitment! He’ll play this like he’s playing with his tax returns.. “I’ll get back to you on that AFTER I become the new POTUS”.. Can we get a straight (un-etch-a-sketch) answer to any of his flip-flop quotes? I’m still waiting.. Ask Ron Paul these same questions and watch yourself leaving satisfied.. This guy needs to get acquainted with reality and be taught that outright lies are NOT considered ‘fibs’. Is he just joking? He’ll get back to you on that.

      Once again I’m writing Ron Paul in….. all the rest of you, spare me the “wasted vote” argument please…. it’s not wasted if you cast it intelligently and know the candidate hyou are voting for.

      What kind of a stupid question is that anyway? All kinds of reporters have an agenda to their questions.
      Our current president answered all of those types of questions with YA I would do that. Then right out of the box did just the opposite. I for one think Romney is at least smarter than BO or maybe just more honest in his responses.

    I still don’t like and don’t want to defend the RINO Romney until he is the official GOP nominee to challenge BHO in November. On the other hand, what is so wrong with having a dog secured on an exterior portion of a vehicle?? When I lived in Florida I saw many pick-up trucks with dogs in the rear bed. I would assume they enjoyed the ride. I’d rather be on the exterior than inside the vehicle, where temperatures can be 20 degrees hotter than outside. If you were a dog, who would you rather have for an owner – someone who will eat you, or someone who allows you to ride with a refreshing breeze?? It should be obvious that BHO and his democraps cannot run for re-election on their failed policies of the past 42 months. So they use trivial issues and nitpicking to attack their challengers.

    • JUKEBOX

      That’s better than cooking and eating the dog.

  • Chris P.

    What Congress and the”white”house needs is a Good enima .Romney won”t be much better(at least we’ll have someone who knows how to handle a Buck( for What its Worth)But that Means having to put up with his flip flopping.I don’t think there is much difference between a person that lies and one that flip flops,( Obomba,Romney,Both of whom I wouldn”t trust any farther than I could pick them up a throw them!!!!!!! )I’m going to vote for RON PAUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I think any one who has a brain that he or she uses to think with,should do the same.He may be up in years,but HELL ,so was Reagan(69 ?) Lets face it,He’s the only person running for President whom we ca trust!!!!!!!

  • Meteorlady

    Is it not the DUTY of the COMMANDER IN CHIEF to know what is going on in the government he was elected to lead? This has been going on from President to President or years and years. It’s the culture handed down from the very top of the food chain.

    I’ve talked to retirees over the last few years, one from the Secret Service and two from GSA. They all say there is corruption and degradation of standards for a long long time. In fact the Secret Service retiree was surprised they had to actually pay for their sexual adventures.

    The GSA head actually took the fifth and then failed to appear the next day. He got an $8,000 bonus and still has his job. What compete and utter arrogance to not stand and tell the truth to the American people when asked by their representatives….

    I think it would be nice of the President did a little less travel and campaigning and started cleaning the house he is responsible for. That’s our house, the people of this country deserve a better climate than what exists today.

    BTW – Bush actually gave up golf when he was President.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    Thinking back to the Alaska Senate race of the RINO Lisa Jerkowski, I just visualize the kind of paper ballot I’d love to see this November. 3 circles on top – Obama, Romney and ‘Neither of the Above’. We could all choose the third, and write in 2 lines below: Herman Cain for president and Michelle Bachmann for VP. But maybe that would be too good to be true. Unlike the delusional Ron Paul supporters, I have to be realistic!!

    • Meteorlady

      Once again you insult an intelligent group of people for now reason other than you believe that you are correct. Arrogant to say the least.

      I answerer a comment you made with two posts, one was to read Ron Paul’s 2000 speech before the house, the other was:Who is the most honest and hard working person campaigning right now for the Presidency?

      Who will end the financial hold the Federal Reserve has on this country?

      If Ron Paul had all the media time that Romney and Obama have would he be up in the poles? Probably yes…. If Ron Paul were to take Super PAC money and money from the likes of Goldman-Sachs and the other manipulators would he stand a chance then?

      Do you really believe that we have control of our political system anymore? Do you believe that you are getting a fair election?

      I’m still waiting…..

  • Ben W.

    Hey Earl-I’m not a “delusioned supporter of Ron Paul, he is the only person running for President That you can trust,Rather he wins or loose ,I’m still votting for him.I too, am realistic!!!!!!

  • Ben W.

    If just once, the people in this Country United behind someone like Ron Paul,and elected him President,it sure would send a clear message to the Super Pac Boys,including Romney) That The American People had had with it With their Corruption.Then (MAYBE)they would take the hint and stop this Crap from going on.
