First on CNN: Romney's airplane, now with logo

(CNN) - CNN obtained photos of Mitt Romney's charter airplane in Lakeland, Florida on Thursday, which now has his campaign slogan, "Believe in America," emblazoned on its side.

Until now, Romney, his aides, and reporters covering him have flown in either unmarked charter planes or in planes marked with their operators' logos.

Romney will deliver the final address at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida Thursday night and officially accept his party's nomination for president.

The plane will be unveiled at a rally for Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, Friday morning in Florida.

    Ha!
    Even the graphics they used on the plane have no style/personality.

    He is a fraud, liar and flip-flopper that wants to return this country to the 1950's. The suppression that the Republican party wants to apply to the citizens of this country, especially women, is no different than what the Taliban do to their people.

    It's disappointing to note that Paul Ryan has done his 'acceptance' speech in a web of LIES. Romney should be ashamed today when he goes on to the stage for his runningmate's lies.

    Do we KNOW that Romney has offshore accounts? There are a lot of comments posted that may just be speculations. Does anyone have hard proof that these accounts exist? I don't recall where it's been cited but I may have just missed it. Are people just repeating unfounded accusations because they want them to be true? Please enlighten me.

    "Believe in America"? Stop LYING! If you believed in America, you wouldn't have your money in other countries!

    No amount of logos and slogans and distortions will dupe intelligent persons of integrity.

    petro - Believe in America ––Just avoid taxes by putting money overseas
    =====================================================
    Paying many millions in taxes every year is hardly avoiding paying taxes. Paying more in one year that many pay in a lifetime is hardly avoiding paying taxes. As far as I am concerned, anybody paying ZERO federal income taxes in this country has no right to criticize ANYBODY paying this much in taxes. You should be sending him a thank you card every year.

    Really? I know he's got a lot of money, but isn't this just a bit much? How many birds in the sky are going to vote. This is just a crazy use of money. He could have given the money he used for his stuipid Believe in America logo to someone who really needs it. Oh I don't know, maybe to the Red Cross for Isaac?

    Bill "Do we KNOW that Romney has offshore accounts?"

    That's the perfect way to show he's just a common man. I got my logo on my plane last year. I don't know how I even flew around without it.

    The slogan should read: Liars, Liars Pants on Fire... remember when you can hide from a theif, you cannot hide from a liar. Keep that in your mind wheny you go into the voting booths. Romney, Ryan and the GOP will be laughing at us again if they win this election like they do in 2010. They throw out all kinds of lies and provided no soluttions to fix the problem (because they do not have any) you are buy it and voted them back into the congress. Wait they will get back the power in November and they will pickyback off Obamas plan. They know that his plans are working and if they had supported him with some of the other things on the table the economy would be booming. But they know he would have a easy win and of course they wanted to block him to the peril of the American people. Shame, Shame, shame on them.

    "I'm shocked he's not flying around on the "TRUMP" plane." I think it IS the Trump plane with a paint job.
