    All the crap about Romney is just the Liberals grabbing at straws, while the negative charges against Obama are on the record for anyone to check. We hear more about Romney because the Liberals and progressives (read socialists) control the MSM.

    They try but there just isn't much about Romney that is really bad. Good Christian, good father, good husband, good provider, very astute business man...What's to tar?

    I meant to say NO. Mitt Romney attacked President Obama, slandered Obama, with lies. Mitt Romney is a snake. Mitt Romney does not need Democrats to attack him; Romney has made a total fool of himself from day one. Romney can't show his tax returns because he has none to show.

    Mitt Romney isn't failing... Ron Paul is devastating his and Obamas campaigns behind the scenes. It would be on T.V. but Romney and Obama have the media on lockdown only airing their updates. You can't have any comparison of Ron Paul to Romney or Obama without really damaging their campaigns. It's just the way it is.

    The only reason it feels like that is because the media won't report any negative news on Obama, due to them being bought and paid for, but they tend to over blow any negative press for Romney. The only folks that believe that drivel presented by the Democrats and there sympathetic press are already in bed with the progressives. The rest of us don't listen to the media we do are own research.

    BO has his own record to look down on, since he can't look up to it. The only thing the dems can say about Romney is that he hasn't turned over his tax records. His image, other than being a rich man, is clean.

    The democrat's are digging at everything to discredit him. I agree with him that if he releases more tax returns they are going to go on a feeding frenzy trying to make mountains out of mole hills. The couldn't find anything in the last two returns so they had to accusations and they will do it with more. The regulations only require two years and ha has complied. He's been trying to run a clean race and to tell everyone on where he stands on the issues but dirty politics (and Obama's team knows how to do that) prevent candidates from doing that if they have to be proving all along that they are lies!

    That is for certain. Mitt Romney is the worst Republican Nominee in history. He often looks as if he has a few screws missing in his head. Romney is definitely no foreign diplomat either.

    I believe the religious right, Tea Party members, messed up the Republican Party for 2012 election. Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann were far too religious right. They came on the scene throwing their religion at Americans. Ron Paul is very wise, but was pushed aside. Loud mouth, air head Sarah Palin caused too much trouble. Palin also ruined John McCain's chances in 2008. Republican Party self destructed themselves.

    Romney just came into the playing field, President Obama has been catching wrath since his swearing in ceremony to become president. Plus, a lot of things have been said about the president that is not true. A lot of what's happening to Romney, he's doing it to himself.

    I have never been so sickened by the Republican Party as this 2012 Election. Even some decent Republican politicians don't like Mitt Romney. John McCain does not. Democrats should slam Mitt Romney in public ads about his dodging fighting in Vietnam with phony deferments. No draft dodger has a right to be Commander in Chief of U.S. Armed Forces. What happened to those gun ho military Republican Vets who would actually vote for Mitt Romney.?

    strawberry I've got to check my friendship list and make sure that you are in the number. Nothing like telling it like it is, not like it t'was. You are so right, we are getting down to the wire, and now is not a time for secrets. From day one President Obama has been ostracized about everything, everyday it's something new, and always something petty. I am beginning to wonder, with all of these hidden agenda's, is this the kind of man that should be considered President of the United States?

    Bias Media you do not hear---Romney often is described as a turnaround artist. No better example of that is how he turned a failure into a success with the 2002 Winter Olympics.
    At the time, the Salt Lake Olympics Organizing Committee (SLOC) had paid more than $1 million in bribes to members of the International Olympic Committee to bring the games to Utah. Even before the scandal erupted, the games had a projected shortfall of $397 million. Given the taint, few wanted to sign up as sponsors or support the event.

    He asked Fraser Bullock, one of the seven original partners of Romney’s Bain Capital, to become his chief operating officer.

    “It was in the midst of a scandal, and you only know how dark it was there if you were there,” Bullock says. “It was very dark, because the Justice Department was investigating the organizing committee. Prospective sponsors, nobody would answer the phone. We had a budget deficit, the morale was very low. We were the target of every newspaper and news station.”

    Romney brought to the table “his leadership that was comprised of optimism and undaunted confidence that we would get the job done,” Bullock says.

    Romney “can see into a situation very quickly,” Bullock says. “He’s very facile with numbers. He’s got that raw intellect which lays a great foundation. And then he’s combined that with a very significant layering upon layer of education and business experience that has given him now the base from which he can make pretty sound judgments pretty quickly.”

    Romney traveled all over the world to gather support for the Olympics. Meanwhile, he cut back on expenses.

    “He does not tolerate one iota of waste.”

    The board members would hold lavish lunches for themselves. Romney said, “Well, our lunches are now going to be pizza, and it’s going to be a dollar a slice,” according to Bullock. “It saved us tens of thousands of dollars, and it was very symbolic, and people got the message to watch every penny.”

    Romney cut back on frills for the games. He reduced the number of flags to be flown throughout the city and persuaded politicians to come up with funds to pay for some of the decorations.

    Romney’s enthusiasm was infectious, driving the sales people to set an all-time record for Olympic sponsorships. Just as significant when it comes to a presidential run, Romney tamed the press.

    . “He dug right into the security issues.”

    “The question on my mind was, how do I keep a bomb from going off?” Romney tells me. “I’m not going to worry so much about cleaning up after the bomb. I need to make sure it does not go off.


    In the end, ticket sales surpassed those of any previous Winter Olympics. An estimated 2.1 billion people around the world watched the games over 17 days, and the United States won 34 medals.

    Having faced a budget deficit of $379 million when he took over, Romney ended up with a surplus of $56 million. The money went to fund future Olympics.

    When he took the job, Romney said he would accept the offered salary of $250,000 a year only if the Olympics made a profit. When it did, he turned his salary over to charity. In addition, he contributed $1 million to the games.

    “My goal is to make Utah proud, make America proud,” Romney said in accepting the Olympics position. “Sure the managers have messed up big time, but the athletes haven’t, and our job is to

    Mitt Romney is a clean-living religious person. He has no skeletons in his closet. The bitterness of the campaign is a smokescreen to hide the fact there are no substantive differences between the two parties.
