    Flip Flop Mittens is the one lying pile of crap that is without substance, but will be a puppet to the Koch brothers. That should be enough to get these republicans in line for their Koch handouts.

  5. S. In California - Obama 2012

    I can't wait for his one on one debate with President Obama but I'm sure he can. He will NEVER say the things he's saying now about Obama to his face. Knowing that – I'm sure he's not getting much sleep because Obama is going to give him a chance to do just that. He's a devious man and I can't stand a devious man. He would lie in bed with the devil to gain power. Anyone remember when he lost to McCain how he literally kissed his behind just for a chance at the VP slot? Even McCain saw through this slime ball and tossed him aside. What a little weasel he is. The whole world will get the chance to see him fall apart as Obama will rip him into tiny pieces without even working up a sweat and I, for one, can't wait for it.

  8. Thank God I am a Democrat

    I hope he isn't courting Hatch's endorsement. He may not have a job himself soon.

    Romney, the guy is hilarious. Strutting around acting all presidential then the votes come in & he gets blown out. Bachman will take Huckabee's place as the Mitten beater downer this primary season. Should be fun to watch seeing him get beat down by a woman this time.

  10. Mitt Romney - He'll Say Anything To Get Elected

    Romney is already political enough with is flip-flopping; he doesn't need to meet with any more POLITICIANS. Rather, Romney needs to meet with some of the nation's top NON-PROFIT business executives. They have jobs which are closer to the duties of a President than any "for-profit" person.

    Non-profits have to deliver a level of services to a stable number of customers [which they can't just abandon if money gets tight]. Their executives have skills relevant to the Presidency. As such, the much derided "community organizer" label that was placed on Obama is closer to the mark than some might think.

    Romney was a Corporate Raider & Job Outsourcer. He borrowed money; bought companies; fired people to squeeze more profit out of the operations; sold the companies for more; paid off the loans; and pocketed what was left over. That is his business experience. It's not very relevant to the problems we face as a country. Team Obama has about 8 months to research his transactions to be able to hold Mitt accountable for the details should they face him in the general election. Plouffe, I hope you are on this.

    As a governor, Mitt was 3rd FROM THE BOTTOM in job creation. This is not exactly the performance we citizens want for the United States.
