    Problem is Romney won't distance himself from this bigot. He won't stand up against the far right wing of his party that has this belief in their minds and hearts.

    Oh, that's right, Romney has no backbone or spine. He is weak and is a wimp!

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz says Mitt Romney has been "crystal clear" on why none of his five sons volunteered for military service.

    No excuse for cowardly Mitt, himself, not telling Trump to get lost.

    Then Romney needs to make it "crystal clear" to Trump that he won't be "paling around" with him anymore and speak for himself. Actions speak louder than words and Romney's actions with Trump speaks louder than his words.

  5. Vote the Tea Party OUT in 2012

    I seem to remember that President Obama had said that he did not agree with the sermon given by Rev Wright that caused all the flareup back in 2008, but that was not good enough he personally had to come out and denounce it, leave the church and seperate himself from Wright for the far right to even accept it. I suggest if Mitt Romney is serious he should do the same thing and not speak through people like Sununu and this guy here.

    And Mittens will be Mittens: Just like McCain, willing to do anything for the GOP nomination. He doesn't care that the only reason they want him is because they know he'll be the perfect "10 working digits" to sign whatever legislation Karl Rove, Grover Norquist and the Koch brothers send his way.

    Pathetic!
