Romney & Obama: Two Sides of the Same Coin

romney obama

It’s no secret that Mitt Romney provided Barrack Obama with the blue print for the healthcare mandate which would force everyone to buy health insurance. But, here’s something that isn’t being widely reported, and that is Mitt Romney’s former company, Bain Capital, was also the architect for the Obama Administration’s takeover of General Motors and Chrysler and, it’s being further reported, that Bain Capital told Obama the takeover should also include the closing of numerous dealerships across the nation which cost a lot of automobile service personnel and dealership owners their livelihoods.

Of course, Bain took over companies to make money for its shareholders, while Obama’s government takeover of private industry was to consolidate power for himself and his “big government” dream.  In either case it was the small business owner or the blue collar worker that suffered economically.

Lawyers like to use the term “dirty hands” when they argue a lawsuit about whether or not the person doing the accusing actually participated in the wrong doing they are suing over. In the case of Mitt Romney, for me at least, perhaps we need to take a closer look at his hands and see if there’s still some dirt under his fingernails.

There’s no doubt the news media wants us to believe it is only Mr. Romney who will be able to win against Barrack Obama. But here’s really what we need to know. Any one of the other GOP candidates would also be able to beat Obama. At issue is the definition of what conservatism really means and what free enterprise really means. I believe free enterprise is defined as an opportunity to grow rich. Listen to me: a company has every right to succeed or fail on its own. Most of us can fail all by ourselves and don’t need either the government or a big corporation to come in and close us down.

    The title is perfect but then we don’t have a lot of choices and Ron Pauls foreign policy shot him in the foot. You do have Gingrich if people would get smart. But they’re not… So it either 4 more years of the black Obama or 4 more years of the white Obama. NO ONE is going to make jobs. That’s all BS and media hype. This country makes jobs from WAR and Housing and no one wants the war and no one wants the home because they are both bad investments with no hope of return.

    • The Enemy

      nvrpc: I agree with you that Gingrich is the best choice. But powerful people are trying to destroy his campaign. I can’t understand why Michael Savage has been attacking Newt so “savagely”! I think Mr. Savage is way off base on this one. It seems like a phobia with him, from his rhetoric.

    • Ray

      I didn’t realize he was because I never listen to him. There is not a candidate running for President in the Republican primary, not one that is perfect . As a matter of there never has been a candidate running for political office that was perfect. The problem Republicans have is the liberal press vents them and they don’t vent the liberal candidates. It is one of the main ways that they stay in control of who the Republicans end up representing their party in the general election.

    • Damon

      We have to consider the real record Romney has and the effects he already had on the United States. Is he creating jobs and why is he all of a sudden against a role model health care system that he invented. Is it because it is not popular with the American people so he is now saying anything to get elected? Sounds like Romney is a true blue politician and we have had enough of those. We need to take a closer look at Newt and yes he made mistakes but is he the best candidate for the United States and look at how the economy grew during the Reagan years. No the medial does not like him but we cannot repeat the same mistake again. The liberal news media is trying to elect Romney like they did Obama. I like a lot of Ron Paul’s ideas for the country but he is not going to make President because of his foreign policy-Yes, we are being warned against Romney and I hope everybody is listening this time. Closing down business while he profited big is not the type of leadership we need for the United States. For me, I will stick with Newt.

    • MH

      I am not for Romney either but some businesses that were closed was because the union workers would not negotiate a new contract with a company that was going bankrupt. The healthcare thing is bankrupting massachusetts so it does suck but it did not totally destroy our healthcare the big effect was on those who did not carry any insurance. I still can have my existing ins unlike obama who is going for single payer total govt take over

    • Doug

      Damon, you make some good points and I agree with your assessment of Newt. He is not afraid to give us straight answers–those which are not designed to please the media. He has well-thought out plans for beginning the process of repairing the damage to our nation that are a direct result of BO’s socialist/marxist agenda. One more thing we should remember–we need representatives with conservative principles to control both houses to make it possible to make the changes which are necessary to expedite our healing as a nation. Highly recommend that we all fully back whichever nominee wins the Republican flag–and support this person with all contributions that we can afford. I personally think Newt is the strongest choice.

    • Ann Wilson Kingsley

      Newt Gingrich is a Neo-Conservative Globalist New World Order Progressive whose life-style is a disgrace. Presidents of our country influence the moral character of the American people, as well as citizens of other countries. We need to elect a president who is a good example. Endorsing or voting for Gingrich is utter hypocrisy. It is no wonder people are gravitating away from our churches when faith-based people are willing to elect a leader who is such a poor example. The people who make this type of endorsement need to consider the type of witnesses they are making for Christ. Most people with Newt’s lack of moral character would not have considered themselves an appropriate example for the American people to follow, but Newt is a Narcissist who has poor ability at self-evaluation.

      Vote for Ron Paul for president!

    • Damon

      Ann Wilson-So who is it that you think is a hypocrite for voting against Ron Paul. He is not going to make President so YOU are throwing your vote away. As for as your moral and character for President. Have you read the platform for the Libertarians, they include legalizing drugs, gay rights AND MARRIAGES BECAUSE WE CANNOT TELL PEOPLE WHO TO MARRY AND THIS IS EVERYBODYS RIGHT, is foreign policy is no better than Jimmy Carters’ which we minded our business while the Soviet Union took over one country after another. It wasn’t until Ronald Reagan increased our Military strength and did not back down that the Soviets collapsed, by the way, brought East Germany back to West Germany as one nation without firing one shot. Now, you want some body who pushes gay right and drug pushers as a President and that is suppose to increase our morals than go spew your venom somewhere else. How dub can any body get?

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      Did you know that Ron Paul’s proposed military budget is FOUR TIMES that of China’s and larger than GW’s in 2005?

      Or that Netenyahu told Congress in May of last year that Israel doesn’t need our troops, that Israel defends itself?

      Or that our troops (in both 2008 and 2012) donate more to Ron Paul’s campaign than to ALL others – including the Commander in Chief – COMBINED? Want to support the troops? Give them the Commander in Chief they WANT.

      Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s Bin Ladin unit, endorsed Ron Paul days before the Iowa caucus. Judge Napolitano interviewed him about this on Fox – find it on youtube.

      We cannot run around bombing POTENTIAL enemies because they MIGHT get nukes. With China and Russia backing Iran, we could well start WW III.

    • Evelyn Levine

      People who want an election bad enough to use tactics that are illegal and ungodly should give us a heads up on certain people. I believe as you do so please know that God is pricking your conscience to know what He is telling you is the truth. Vote His vote by asking Him which way to vote.

    • USAF VET

      I’ve been saying that Mitt Romney is the Caucasian version of Obumski ever since he said he was running for President. The Drive by Media latched onto him about the same time. Any time the DBM starts touting a “Republican/Conservative” candidate, you can bet your bottom dollar that candidate is a RINO. Newt Gingrich may have had some issues in his past, but he is still a lot better choice than Mitt Romney. He’s better than Ron Paul who is, contrary to some who just can’t see it, an isolationist. In some ways, Ron Paul wants to take us back to the pre FDR era when the Socialists started wrecking our Nation, and began taking away our freedoms bit by bit. As far as saying that he has moral issues, he is nothing like “Slick Willy” Clinton who was elected twice, and Obumski, who stated before he was elected that he wanted to sperad the wealth, and on Inauguration Day, he stated that he was going to fundamentally change the United States of America. Sure, Newt knows where the bodies are buried, and he will expose those who had them buried, every single Liberal who has been working for the downfall of our country.

      Whether it’s flip-flopping on TARP, supporting the individual mandate that served as a model for “ObamaCare,” joining with Nancy Pelosi in support of the global-warming crowd’s radical agenda, or making millions off of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as they helped destroy our economy, Newt Gingrich is trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
      He’s what is called a “counterfeit conservative.” Here’s an ad so you can hear Newt in his own words explaining his record of supporting liberal policies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Jzi3HBCS2M

      2sweet, are your exaggerations innocent or outright lies? Freddie? Millions?

    • Damon

      Mike–I can understand your sentiments and agree with your aspects of Ron Paul with what you wrote. However, there is one thing lacking. Ron Paul is going to start dropping now and he has had is hay day. You are going to have to make the decision to support the Republican nominee for President regardless of who he may be to get rid of Obama and even Ron Paul is on the kick that he has to go. If you decide to sit out the elections, you just voted for Obama. If anybody chooses to do that rather than remain loyal to the United States and her liberty than so be it. The choice will be yours but that choice will come with a severe penalty that you helped decide.

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      We won’t sit out the election. It is legal in all but six states to write in a candidate.

    • George

      Must vote for whomever would replace Hussein Obummer,then apply conservative influence by electing a solid and strong conservative Republican Senate. Dump Polosi types. And if Romney make him follow his encouraging promises. Building economy with jobs, supporting Israel, dumping,unneeded foreign support, Planned Parenthood, ObamaCare, Acorn-voting in dead voters, and all the Demoncratic deception. ..

    • Ann Wilson Kingsley

      That is naive! You cannot make Romney do anything at all that you want if he is elected. He follows orders from the New World Order, just as Gingrich and Perry do. Vote for a Republican House and Senate to curb Obama. Then vote for a principled Conservative for president, not a Republican Obama. Vote for Ron Paul!

    • Co-opted Confederate

      Newt is a rabidly overzealous anti second amenment anti bill of rights RINO of the FDR school of Political science. He Just plain sucks when it come to honoring his oath to uphold/support AND defend the Constitution against all enemies both FOREIGN and DOMESTIC. Now days the Domestic enemies all appear to be either appointed or elected government officials. Nothing else in this Nation at this time in history is more important that how the Constitution is applied to EVERY SINGLE ACTION of the Government.. It’s not JOBS, the ECONOMY, WAR, National Debt, Taxes, Health care, it’s about the excruciatinly painfull obvious death of the Constitution. Ya’ll can’t be to deaf, dumb, and blind to see that or can ya!

    • Mark in LA

      You are delusional if you think Lizardman has any chance of beating Obama. Romney will get trounced as well. Nobody will cross over and vote for these two bpught and paid for banker shills. Only Ron Paul can steal votes from the Democrats. Stop with the nonsesne that Obama is so beatable. He won’t be if another round of Chamber of Commerce / AIPAC / RNC turds is thrown in the voters face.

    • Kansas Kahuna

      Mark in LA…Of course you would be for Paul! He will legalize all the street drugs, so we can start our young pre schoolers on pot, along with NO GOD on our currency, coinage, along with a quality education on the degenerate lifestyle of the homosexuals! Once you identified yourself from LA, you need not have said more!…KK

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      If federal laws against drugs are removed, state laws will still apply. How many people do you know who will run out and start using drugs just because the federal laws are gone without changes in state laws? Did you know that the repeal of the prohibition on alcohol resulted in reduced rates of drinking?

      The main effect of dropping federal drug laws would be that the federal government would stop interfering with states’ medical marijuana laws. As a physician, Ron Paul resents the government telling him he cannot prescribe a natural plant that has been used medicinally for thousands of years.

      right on bud

    • Kansas Kahuna

      nvrpc…I agree with your assessment! Those wanting to put the chief BUZZARD in the oval office, will find out the hard way, that the outcome of a second term of obama, or romney, will be the same.

      The subtle difference is that the Buzzard will walk out a billionaire after one term, but the destruction to the classes and our nation will be the identical! The current occupier is illegal, while the other is morally corrupt, egotistical, and self-serving!

      I am but one vote, but it will go to Newt, not the Bain Capital Buzzard! If you like Romney, you’ll love Meg Whitman, the eBay fraudster who will be brought in as a chief cabinet member! She had a helping hand at Bain!

      STOP being an agent for the Dems., unless you’re one of them, in which case, if you get your way w/ 4 more years of Oduma, I hope you lose your job, your house, & your family. I do not suffer fools lightly.

      Jimmy Carter likes Romney, which tells me he is a leftist “Republican”.

    • USAF VET

      I heard Romney state that he is a Progressive and a Moderate. That tells me he has Liberal ideas. I know he is for gun control, believes in the “Global Warming/Climate Change” myth, supporst Cap and Tax, supports amnesty for ALL illegals. What more do you need to tell you he is nothing but a RINO who will carry on with Obumskis type of administration.

    • Ann Wilson Kingsley

      Romney, Obama, Gingrich, and Perry will all perform the same. They all take orders from the same New World Order group. To get someone who is honest and has no agenda other than saving American, vote for Ron Paul!

      Israel has 100s of different kinds of nukes. Ron Paul is trying to keep American tax payers from having to spend more money on wars when we are not being attacked.

      Ron Paul is for a strong military:
      Ron Paul receives more political donations from military personnel than all other candidates combined. “The libertarian congressman boasts more donations from military members than any other 2012 presidential candidate. The claim was determined “true” by Politifact, after the fact-checking group looked at Federal Election Commission filings.” Santorum has a grand total of $750 from all branches of the military combined! $750!!! Gingrich has an “impressive” $4,900! Romney has a whopping $13,300! Ron Paul has $95,567! I wonder who’s foreign policy the military agrees with! We actually know what’s going on over seas, and many of us support Paul! If you want to stop the endless nation building wars, support who the troops support!

      The military supports Ron Paul because he wants to end obsolete bases and military hardware, and he is for advanced technological weaponry research. Ethical American soldiers do not want to fight wars against countries that have not attacked the United States. Ethical people do not attack others without extreme provocation.

    • Richard

      Romney didn’t design it. He signed into law what the Massachusetts legislature wrote and passed.

    • EnoughStupidity

      Get on the internet and find CCTV the chinese network. What might be interesting is that you will see a side that is not reported by our news media that should. Then you will see Ron Pauls side.

      Right now Russia just warned the US not to fly over Syria and begin an incident like Quaddafi. Or Russia and China will become involved.

      Your news media don’t tell you this!!!!

      Do you think it is worth it to come against Russia and China together????? I am ex military and that isn’t wise, we need to keep our nose in our business, Russia and China have control of the middle east now and there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it.

  • The Enemy

    All along, I’ve wondered why Romney leads the pack in the polls. Evidently people are fooled by his lies just like they are fooled by the lies of the illusionist-in-chief. We need a conservative to run against the king, not a centrist RINO bordering on liberal!

    • Bill

      Not according to the arch liberal ACLU group. They rate Romney as the most consevative of all the candidates, with a liberal rating of ZERO.

    • Damon

      Yep, one more reason to vote against Romney–the Sebastian ACLU calling Romney the true conservative and the liberal news media establishment touting his record–I smell a rat and I have learned too much from Obama.

      Consider the source, the liberal ACLU. That’s the same thing as being evaluated by satan. We all know satan is the father of all lies and is a murderer. He likes to keep us confused. Romney, in my opinion, is a RINO and I don’t trust him. Paul and Gingrich are the best. See website: http://www.haasstrep68.com

    • Ann Wilson Kingsley

      The ACLU rating is on adherence to the constitution. While the ACLU gives a Liberal interpretation to the constitution, they are still constitutionalists. Ron Paul adheres to a Conservative interpretation of the constitution. Ron Paul was rated the top constitutionalist, not Romney-Obama.

    • USAF VET

      The ACLU is NOT a Constitutionalist organization. They were formed by Communists and do not interpret the Constitution correctly.

      Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are “citizens of the United States at birth:”
      •Anyone born inside the United States *
      •Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a citizen of the tribe
      •Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
      •Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
      •Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
      •Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
      •Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
      •A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.
      * There is an exception in the law — the person must be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States. This would exempt the child of a diplomat, for example, from this provision.
      Anyone falling into these categories is considered natural-born, and is eligible to run for President or Vice President. These provisions allow the children of military families to be considered natural-born.

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      But the standard for the office of President is “natural born citizen” which requires being born of two parents who are citizens. Obama’s father was not.

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      Even if Obama’s father HAD been a US citizen, he was adopted by another non-citizen and Obama had to renounce his US citizenship in order to attend school in Indonesia, where he listed his citizenship as Indonesian. In order to become an Indonesian citizen, he had to renounce his US citizenship. One of the reasons Obama has worked so hard and paid so much to conceal his school records is that he received aid as a foreign student in college.

  • Richard Popovich

    While I am not a Romney supporter, I believe that Mitt Romney stands well above Barack Obama. One key difference is that Romney believes in God, and Obama thinks HE is God!

    • Sandy in NY

      We all know obama thinks he is god but if you think Romney doesn’t, you are clueless about Mormonism. Take a look at Ed Deckers book “My Kingdom Come.” He is an exmormon, now a born again Christian. I just started reading it and I am totally blown away.There is information there we ALL need to know. They say look at my record to know who I am but I say that a mans faith guides him and Romney scares the hair off me!

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      Let me start by saying I would never support Romney and that I am a Christian and not a Mormon. However, as Americans we may not share the beliefs others may hold, but we respect them. If you’re going to reject Romney, do it because he will say anything to get elected or because he has held the same positions as Obama on every major issue at one time or another. But not because of his faith. Further, there are different sects of Mormonism, much like other faiths. You can’t pigeonhole all Mormons into one mold.

    People can vote any candidates they want to. America is a free country.

Did you know that the repeal of the prohibition on alcohol resulted in reduced rates of drinking?

      The main effect of dropping federal drug laws would be that the federal government would stop interfering with states’ medical marijuana laws. As a physician, Ron Paul resents the government telling him he cannot prescribe a natural plant that has been used medicinally for thousands of years.

      As for the motto:
      “I would have voted ‘no’ not because I don’t like the motto and don’t think we can use it but ‘no’ because we were telling the states what to do,” Paul told The Hill.

    Sad but true from my perspective, I see Romney and Obama cut from the same cloth. The only real difference is one is a natural born American as defined by the U.S Constitution and the other is a pretender who was never properly vetted for the Office of President. In the finaly analysis will we throw out the criminal to keep his twin in office in violition of U.S LAW? There are so many uneducatd and blind foolw that will vote for him regardless and hope the U.S will fail. Considering the money raised by the DNC, Obama and George Soros it will be a very bitter battle. But I fulley expect obama to declare martial law in order to nullify holding an election.

  • Bren in VA

    IS this election rigged already?
    Here in Va, our Mar 6 ballot for Prez will only show Romney & Paul.
    Yes, I realize, it the other 3 guys own fault for not doing their “homework” to get 10k signatures from July to Dec so they COULD BE on our ballot.
    What a joke! Can ya tell I’m upset!

    • Jean

      Can you’ll vote absontee? If not, why don’t you Virginians go ahead and vote for Ron Paul anyhow just to keep Romney from getting the electorial votes. I doubt? Paul would have enough around the country to help him win. You can still help your candidate (whoever) win by keeping Romney out.

    • Kansas Kahuna

      Bren in VA…Since you live in VA, you can initiate a write in for Newt! Just put on your door-to-door walking shoes and do a bit of campaigning!

      If your candidate is not competent enough to follow the rules that two candidates successfully followed, what makes you think he is competent to run the country?

    • heylottylotty

      This whole Virginia “thing” has me puzzled. Why do the citizens of Virginia allow themselves to be limited by State Law??? CHANGE THE LAW. It had to be voted in so vote it out. It may be too late this time but I have heard no movement to change the law. Don’t let your citizens be hog tied at the voting booth. Get those grassroots movements going. Change the laws to what the citizens want.

  • Kim

    It was not Bain Capitol, represented by Mr. Romney, that aided Obama in the auto company takeover. It was another Bain company that Mr. Romney had no affiliation with. Romney and Obama have enough other things in common, but this is not one of them. The liberal/socialist media latched on to this falsehood without checking facts (as usual these days)and have been using it to smear Romney and the entire Republican party.

    • Kansas Kahuna

      Kim…Another Bain??? Get real!

    • Richard

      Bain and Company is a consulting company that was once associated with Bain Capital back in the 80’s before Mitt became involved with it. They are no longer associated and haven’t been for about 20 years. Mitt actually helped save Bain Capital from going under in the late 80’s/ early 90’s after they got into financial trouble.

  • Lowell T.

    We must choose someone. My primary vote will go to Newt then whoever actually runs for president on the Republican ticket I will support anyway I can. We must get enough people out and vote to overcome the phoney votes that will be cast. In the meantime I will push and support any state that is attempting to disqualify Obama for eligibility.

    • Enoch

      At last – a voice of reason! I’m using that strategy myself, Lowell.

      Because in my state our primaries are held soooo late, I’ll have to see who’s left on the ballot to support. I’ll pull the lever for the most conservative of who remains.

      Then in November I’ll pull that lever for the (R) candidate, regardless of who it is and spend my prior months doing everything & anything I can to support that person.

  • Sharon

    Mitt Romney is the ONLY presidential candidate who can BEAT Obama. His appearance is presidential, and he will be an outstanding debator against Obama. He is a wonderful family man. He loves God and this country. You can trust Mitt Romney to bring this country back from disaster. He is 180 degrees from the man in the White House who wants to “fundamentally transform” America…that’s code for socialism or worse Marxism! Wake up, America.

    • lilij

      If you honesty believe that you are deceived.

      MANY will either vote third party (causing Obama to win), stay home and not vote at all or many will even vote for Obama just to make sure the GOP will NEVER allow a RINO in their group!
      If the GOP allows Romney to represent the GOP,
      PLAN on Obama and the demise of America.
      There will be NOTHING holding back a lame duck Obama…
      just saying…

    Romney & Obama: Two Sides of the Same Coin

    That’s exactly how I feel about the two. This will be another Bush taking over after Clinton leaves office. He has the opportunity to right the wrongs but looks the other way instead and does nothing.

    • Jean

      I’m afraid he’s even to the left of Bush.

    Re the “ProgSoc” Democrats’ (and some ill-informed Republicans’), contentions that ObamaCare is modeled on “RomneyCare,” please be aware of the very detailed June 2010 Heritage Foundation analysis by highly regarded Dr. Bob Moffit, entitled “The Prospects for Ending ObamaCare: Learning From Healthcare History.”

    http://www.heritage.org/Research/Reports/2010/06/The-Prospects-for-Ending-Obamacare-Learning-from-Health-Policy-History

    As you will see, the unholy parentage of this bureaucratic monstrosity is not the one-state Massachusetts healthcare plan but the universal, cradle-to-grave “HillaryCare” plan of the Clinton-Rodham-Gore gang of the early 1990s. Dr. Moffit reveals in part:

    *********** Excerpt *************
    Key elements of liberal health policy proposals of the early 1990s ["HillaryCare," for short] and of the Obama agenda of 2009– 2010 are strikingly similar in substance, though their presentation and legislative development were very different.

    Though the Obama Administration’s relentless work on behalf of the President’s health care agenda culminated in legislative success and the Clinton plan was a legislative failure, both health plans lost in the court of public opinion at the climax of congressional deliberations. They shared certain common problems.

    Unappealing Centralized Control. Both the Clinton plan and Obamacare sought to concentrate decision-making on health care financing and delivery in Washington. Both included … (items separated, enlarged and bulleted for ease of reading) …

    o a highly prescriptive federal definition and control of the content of “acceptable” health insurance benefit packages;

    o individual and employer mandates to purchase federally approved health insurance plans;

    o multi-year Medicare cuts to finance the expansion of health care coverage;

    o centralization of federal control of health insurance markets, manifest in federally designed health insurance exchanges in the Obama version and geographically based “regional alliances” in the Clinton version; and

    o federal control of health care financing, characterized by taxpayer subsidies and premium rate regulation in the Obama version and

    o “premium caps” and a “global budget” governing all health care spending in the Clinton version.

    ************** End of Excerpt **************

    So, when our SCAMALOT President and certain anti-Romney zealots cite “RomneyCare” as the model for his so-called “bipartisan” (spell BUYpartisan) cradle-to-grave take-over of the American healthcare system, you will now know “the rest of the story” — as the late Paul Harvey would have said — and will be able to address the “blame RomneyCare” scam with proper disdain.

    I have aimed for Gingrich even at the start and I have not changed that because I really believe that he has the ability and the experience to turn this country around from where it’s heading now. True, he has some baggage on his back that he has already answered and explained and those baggage are not or cannot destroy a country unlike what Obama is doing now.

  • C. Caros

    The only way to create jobs is to invest in New Technology, New Products, etc., etc. to create manufacturing, transportation, warehousing, retail customer support, property purchases, pay taxes, pay utilities, SS, Medicare, Insurances, community infrastructure, new schools, new hospitals, etc., etc.

  • Patrioticnut

    Everyone who posts on these sites as conservatives need to stop with the creating jobs stuff. Always remember, the federal government only has one way of creating jobs and that is to make more federal employees. The proper term would be for the government to create a job friendly atmosphere so that WE can create jobs. As for Romney, I don’t trust him and think he is another liberal rino. The media is pushing him and that tells me not to vote for him. That being said I will back the nominee, even if I have to hold my nose as I did for McCain.

  • Glen Xx

    Here is why RINO Romney can not win General Election

    He is a lot like Obama, causing independents to vote 3rd party or stay home

    He is a flip flopper

    He is too rich,

    he is a Morman

    He will never out live the Negative press about Bain Capital.

    Many RON Paul supporters will vote 3rd party

    Will Romneyism be like Obamaism as is displayed in the first video lead to more BIG Government like is in the Second Video ???

    I think romney is just like Danny Diveto in the movie where he was a company take over man that lied his way into the company then CLOSED Them Down after stealing the money and laying everyone off!! Was that movie made from romneys experences??

  • Carol Fryer

    There are globalist faction heading both parties that are indeed the 2 sides to the same coin. Im just in awe at how powerful these people are down to controling votes and making it look like American citizens are making the choice. If you vote in a poll yourself, theres an entirely different result then the ones you dont see, that they say other people voted in. Something wrong with that.

  • Anon

    Romney and Obama are both so young and handsome. That’s what will make choosing one over the other so difficult :(

    • lilij

      Are you serious???

      With all hell breaking loose, all you think about is how handsome they both are!

      I had students in HS actually vote for our socialist dictator in the white house because they thought he was handsome…

      Yep, good looks is definitely what it takes to run America these days… No food on the table, unemployment at an all time high, socialist and communists in the White House and all that matters is looks…

  • lilij

    Romney is a WHITE Obama! The only difference between Obama and Romney is how dark their skin color is!
    They BOTH support gov’t takeover, mandated healthcare.
    They BOTH support controls on healthcare (elderly and sickly look out)
    They BOTH support sodomy.
    They BOTH support abortion.
    They BOTH support BIG federal gov’t control.

    I would rather have America sink due to a black democrat running the White House than a white RINO running the White House.
    I would not vote or vote for Obama rather than allow the GOP think they can force us conservatives to accept their Obama twin
