I shudder when I think about where we’d be with GWB / McCain / Romney.
ROMNEY: “I cannot predict precisely what the rate would be at the end of one year. I can tell you that over a period of four years, by a virtue of the polices that we put in place, we get the unemployment rate down to 6 percent, perhaps a little lower.”
Think for a minute the ‘leadership’ we would of had with John McCain or Mitt Romney – – –
Thank You, Mr. President!
Consider for a monent, his competition.
Remember the closing days of the 2012 presidential campaign when Mitt Romney ran that explosive ad suggesting Chrysler was going to stop building Jeeps in Ohio and move production to China?
The one that got “Four Pinocchios” from the fact-checker at the Washington Post?
The one Romney himself echoed in a speech he delivered near the Jeep plant in Ohio: “I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China.” Right afterward, Meat Loaf performed.
Anyway, that Jeep plant? It didn’t move to China. And it’s actually doing quite well.
No, scratch that: It’s going gangbusters.
Demand for Jeeps is so high that Chrysler workers are clocking 60 hours a week and still can’t keep up. So according to the Toledo Blade, the company is planning on hiring up to 1,000 part-time workers—American workers, in Ohio—so they can crank out enough Jeeps to meet the demand.
“There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what … who are dependent upon government (Social Security, Medicare, Veterans, etc), who believe that they are victims. … These are people who pay no income tax. … and so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives” – Willard Romney

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, speaking more than a year after he lost to President Barack Obama, acknowledged Friday that his campaign failed to attract minority voters.
“The place that my campaign and I fell short was probably in being able to speak openly and effectively to minority populations. We didn’t get as many African-American voters as we should have, didn’t get as many Hispanic voters as we should have,” he said on “CBS This Morning.” “Across the board, we need to do a better job explaining why it is that our policies will lead to higher wages, better health care, better schools.”
1. “didn’t get as many Hispanic voters as we should have.”
FACT: During the GOP presidential debate in Tampa, Fla., Romney was asked how he would address illegal immigration, and said he favored what he called “self-deportation.”
“The answer is self-deportation, which is people decide they can do better by going home because they can’t find work here because they don’t have legal documentation to allow them to work here.”
definition: ‘self-deportation’ – Make it so damn tough on ’em, they will simlply leave!
2. “Across the board, we need to do a better job explaining why it is that our policies will lead to higher wages, better health care, better schools.”
– higher wages?
– better health care??
– better schools???
I refer you to the above GIF.
During the 2012 presidential election, there was heavy (HEAVY?) speculation on who Mitt Romney would pick as his running mate. While it ended up being Rep. Paul Ryan, many thought it would be governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie.
Chris Christie has been a popular governor of a traditionally blue state in New Jersey and has found a balance between conservatives and liberals that many politicians can’t seem to grasp. Christie’s biggest challenge comes from the left of the Democratic party, as expected, but also from the right of his own Republican party. Many within the fanatical Tea Party wing of the GOP see Christie as too liberal or too moderate and have been critical of his relationship with President Obama following Hurricane Sandy’s devastation of the Garden State in October of 2012.
In the new book ‘Double Down,’ the sequel to 2008’s Game Change, authors Mark Halperin and John Heilemann take readers behind the scenes of the 2012 election and reveal many interesting plot points. According to the book, one reason why Romney decided against choosing Christie as his Vice President was due to Christie’s size and weight issues. Romney has been known as a someone who is health conscious and Christie’s lack of interest in physical fitness bothered Romney to the point that he would often mock the New Jersey governor in front of his aides and staff.
“Romney marveled at Christie’s girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus…
Watching a video of Christie without his suit jacket on, Romney cackled to his aides, ‘Guys! Look at that!'”
‘Shallow Hal’ would’ve picked Christie.
Q: How did Romney work out for you guys?
