Mitt Romney's new general election message

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) – After hammering Republican rivals for months, Mitt Romney is gearing up for the main event and turning his full attention to President Obama.

The two camps are now openly trading broadsides - and the first salvos are over the economy, a topic likely to be at the fore of political discourse until Election Day.

    A very clear choice.

    One is a successful businessman the other a fail community leader.

    Another Day in the Idiot Mines of the Obama Administration, I take it you enjoy it when people lose their jobs? Typical rightie, no compassion for the people involved: I'm sure you would go ballistic if someone attempted to put a fee on a huge bank though. You probably cheered when we lost the 2016 Olympics bid, too. Anything to root against working people.

    Silent DoGood: Dave makes some valid points though. Is it religous bigotry if someone running for President is a member of a religion that sees a significant segment of the population as "less than", or "filthy animals"? These are valid points. His father was for civil rights is there anything to indicate that Romney the son is? We're not talking about sitting in a church listening to someone else's views, we're talking about until very recently part of this religions' (?) tenets. The discussion is going to take place,and it should.

    To be honest, we don't want to unleash the "power of free enterprises" again. George W. Bush tried to do that and look at what happened. Republicans blamed the Democrats for the mess.

    Look. Unrestrained capitalism is to economics, as unrestrained communism is to politics. It doesn't work for the average Joe. All of the power and money is controlled by an elite few. From the average Joe's perspective, there is no difference between a government owned and controlled by businesses, and a goverment that owns and controls the businesses. The result is the same.

    ...I'm sure that gas prices are really effecting him and and his family. Just what would Romney do to lower gas prices?
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Mitt Romney would do 2 things that would lower gas prices that Obama has not been very good at. First is to implement policies that maintain or increase the value of the American dollar. A strong dollar improves American purchasing power for products in the global economy. Second would be to provide government encouragement for developing the domestic energy industry. This is a huge part of our national economy and a huge contributor to our federal government budget because of it's profitability. This is an industry that improves American lives in many ways.

    Romney is a clown. All he can seem to do is run his mouth, constantly change his positions based on who he is trying to woo, and attack others. Perhaps he could offer some sort of vision and a plan. Oh, wait a minute, he's a Republican. Enough said...

    In 2008 presidential bid, Sen McCain showed that he was very civilised. But Mr. severely conservative Mitt, doesn't have it at all. Bashing our allies in Europe, going after Russia, going after the President in uncivilised manner. What kind of a country/people is he looking to lead?? Am not impressed at all!

    -----------------
    Why didn't George W. Bush try to do that? Why did he claim that he could do something about gas prices? Why did he try to back up that ridiculous claim by going to Saudi Arabia to "suggest" that they increase their daily output, increasing the oil supply?

    Why is it only conservatives believe that a POTUS can do anything about gasoline prices?

    Mitt the etch-a-sketching parrot.
    The car elevator man who likes firing people while eating his grits y'all thinks anyone (besides Fantasy and Nothing But Fantasy) is going to fall for him not being out of touch....
    Mitt is clearly delusional as he thinks that the non 1% are impressed by his checkered shirts and mom jeans. Zipped or unzipped, Willard is a 2 faced vulture capitalist phoney.

    Romney is a BIG CLOWN that has no Idea on how to run a country. He will be worse George W Bush was., He took a big cash surplus and ran our country into 12 Trillion Dollar debt and REWARDED the top 1%. Romney do the same and you TAILERED Tea Party will be his puppets.

    Yo silence do good, about 9 years ago while living in So Utah I exprienced the horrific non itegrity of mormons. I was watching 12 year old boys build a neighborhood at Coral Canyon, they were suprervised by 50 something & 60 something man. Come to find out it was the FLDS plygs, yes the ones who rape & marry off 12 year old girls to these 60 year old men. So Utah did not only turned their head but ENGAGED their home building skills. Think about that. SUPORTING thes freaks who abuse & RAPE & MARRY 12-13 year old girls & REPRESS their freedom completly. I went to the Mayor Hershey & said What the F-k is up with this. He told me to mind my own Business. I went to the Hurricane & Laverkin Police & said Guys, you gotta do something about this. Sorry out of our juristruicktion. I wrote Huntsman up in Salt Lake. NO REPLY. Jon Huntsman while being Gov totally ignored thes pre teenage girls getting raped & sold off in Hilldale Ut. Remember, this is in America. Nice job ignoring 12-13 etc girls gettig raped & sold off an married to someone 5 times their age. Huntsman is a dirtbag.

    The Real Tom Paine - I take it you enjoy it when people lose their jobs?
    ==========================================================
    No, but I can't stand my government wasting my hard earned tax dollars betting on unviable businesses and technology. The can't even run the government properly let alone play venture socialist successfully. Billions being flushed down the tiolet by Obama. And far too much of it going to his campaign financeers.

    romneys message is that he is so out of tune with the American public it't almost funny. Who could trust this lying rich guy to do anything that would help the middle class. Look at his history and how much he loves the ryan budget.
