Washington (CNN) - Another major conservative figure backs Mitt Romney. His voice joins a growing chorus of major names in the Republican Party calling for the divisive GOP nomination battle to come to an end.

On Friday, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan endorsed Romney's bid for the White House, saying, "I believe he is the right person for the job."

    Romney will make a GREAT President. It'll be SOOO nice to have somebody in the Whitehouse that isn't always out attacking, insulting and demonizing our citizens and businesses. (and giving BILLIONS to his campaign contributors and union lackeys)

    "t'll be SOOO nice to have somebody in the Whitehouse that isn't always out attacking, insulting and demonizing our citizens and businesses."

    Got any specific examples if this? Cause to most of America, you've just described the GOBP perfectly.

    Truth – It is you, Fox foreign owned media with a hint of Saudi, bigots, and the GOP Taliban, who have attacked seniors, women, veterans, workers, minorities, gays and lesbians, Muslims, the 99%, and you have the stupidity to think the divisiveness in our country comes from a black man. Other than right wingnuts, you and your ilk have demonized everyone.

    Mittens would not even make it as an acceptable doorman at a second rate hotel. He couldn't hail a cab even though he blows.

    Aura? Must be all that gold around his petrified head.
    I love the hoopla regarding someone who wants to take away money and medical help to seniors, poor and fhe middle class such as deepbrowman ryan.
    This only adds to the clowns now endorsing then flip,flopper with one hand while holding their nose eith the then. Now we only need you know who to put her two cents kiss of desth (see newterman and sanatorium) in and we are ready to start the crazy no rights for anyone but the rich party.
    BTW do any of these kids work or go to school or do anything worth their weight? All they seem to do is stand behind the so called misguided and smile and clap. Little satan's daughter didn't even flinch to her father's bs statement. Are
    they drugged to come to these interminable rallies of very few Attendees? I really wonder.

  10. Wake up people

    Anything to get the uumm black man out of office. Can't have a black man running a country where blacks used to be slaves, and I'm sure some still wish we were. Eventually all the rethugs are going to jump on the Mittens please Robmey bandwagon. They have one goal in mind, restore America to the rich white folks. I bet this one gets deleted.

    Romney continues to make strides to the White House. People may not recognize his integrity and values now, because campaigns get so immersed in mud-slinging and name-calling, but America is discovering what a great leader Mitt is. We have the opportunity this year to put a solid man of integrity in the WH and lead the country back on the right path.

    Great photo. He has almost as many levels of facial expression as Kristin Stewart.

    SR – Where did you get that integrity crap? Will he etch a sketch every hateful thing he has done in the primaries to try to attract the very people he has alienated the last three years?

    A right wingnut referred to the flip flopper as being 'solid.' The only things solid about Mittens is his ability to launder money off shored and to evade paying his fair share of taxes.

    Romney will make a LOUSY President. He will stand for nothing (whatever he says or promises, you can be sure that he will change his mind) other than giving the rich big tax cuts and getting the United States involved in another Mideast war (Iran). His lackeys like Lies and Nothing but the Lies will always be out attacking, insulting and demonizing citizens who do not agree with them (and let Romney give BILLIONS to big corporations and Wall Street fat cats).

    "but America is discovering what a great leader Mitt is."

    Okey-dokey, then. ( Maybe in GOPerville ... in "real" America, it's never going to happen. Not for Mitt, anyway. )

    @sr, integrity? The $250M+ man wouldn't know the meaning of integrity if it messed up his hair.
    The meaning of integrity = truth, honor, veracity, reliability, uprightness. The antonym is what really describes him dishonest to the core.
    This guy wakes up every morning not knowing which side or which issue he will be against because he was for it yesterday.
    Even his sentences don't make sense. Our country doesn't apologize to anyone but we apologize nevertheless or something like that. He is beginning to sound a little crazy ala AK way.

    the aura is coming off his magic underpants.... He has positioned himself so far to the right to try to get the red-meat knuckle draggers to like him (btw, they still don't) that when he is nominated, the flipping and flopping back to the center to get the "real" electorate" on his side will say "go back to Massachussetts.....or Michigan.....or your new house with the car elevator in California"

    I doubt Mitt has an Etch-A-Sketch big enough to erase everything he's said this past 6 months, let alone his entire professional career of campaign lying. Mitt Romney is what he is: a career liar. Nothing is ever going to chance that.

    Romney as a Senate candidate & Mass Gov for abortion, Romney as Pres candidate against abortion. Romney as Mass Gov for mandates, Romney as Pres candidate against mandates. Romney as Mass Gov for universal health care, Romney as Pres candidate against universal health care. What does Romney stand for? Answer – Mitt Romney, Obama/Biden 2012.

    in·teg·ri·ty [in-teg-ri-tee]
    noun
    1. adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

    Would you rather that you try to explain how Mittens' flip-flopping and pandering to tell everyone what he thinks they most want to hear isn't a giant indictment of his alleged "integrity" or that I explain why your assertion is total birdpoop? Please, let me know.

    Romney will make a GREAT President....
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________
    Don't get me started. But can you imagine having a President who so completely understands the implications of decisions he makes on economic and business issues? And I'm not talking about after he meets with his room full of Economic Advisers, I mean in real time right then and there. And I don't think our federal government has ever had someone at the helm with even close to the amount of actual management experience. Just imagine how much low hanging fruit there is for improving the effectiveness of the Executive branch of government. It will be amazing.

    Romney 2012!

    Romoney is a droid. He will never be President of the United States. He and his masters may be able to buy the Presidency but he will never be the President FOR anyone but the 1%. Just as Bush was.

    Isn't it about time that conservatives admit that they know nothing about fiscal responsibility? Three republican presidents have given us $12 trillion in national debt, and a near depression. Also, President Obama's last budget has a $977 billion deficit, but compared to "W"'s last one with a $1.37 trillion deficit, we are moving in the right direction. (That is $400 billion less than Bush if you are keeping track)

    Now that I think of it, Obama sure WAS listening and learning quite well while he sat in Rev. Jeremiah Wright's church. Obama's whole speaking style is lifted from Wright It's all about the oppressed versus oppressor, you just need to fill in the blanks for that day. Today it is "Big Oil". Next week it will be somebody new. A Divider-in-Chief must allows have that evil boogy man to rail against. To what end? Riots? Race wars? Looting? Poor people atttacking anybody better off than they? Obama is simply DANGEROUS because he plays with fire he has no way of controlling once it get s unleashed.
