  6. Romney is not My Hero

    Old Robo Etchy Sketchy is going to get an elevator for his car. I wonder if the dog's still strapped to the top of the car just waiting for lift off... LMAO - But seriously, doesn't everyone in America have at least one car elevator in their home? I just had two installed last month in my colonial home on the moon. LMFAO

    OBAMA 2012!

    Go on with your bad self Mr. 1%er. I guess he just knows he is going to be the President. People need to get their heads out of their butts that believe he will ever be able to relate to the poor or the middle classs.

    Good for Mitt. We need a successful businessman in DC who is not a career politician and is not in it for the money. Obama has ruined this nation - put us into deep debt – lost our credit rating – been ineffective with Iran Israel North Korea Pakistan Iraq and every other nation n he planet – he has killed the real estate market -- polarized the nation - and has set us back 15 years

    As long as Romney keeps part of the structure of the 3000 sq ft house to the 8,000 sq ft house he also will not be re-valued on the land for property taxes. So besides having the two story car elevator story should Romney become President will the complaints of trips and costs of Air Force One continue when Romney flies to his vacation home in California? I don't care if Romney is rich but I do care if he is Patriotic. I would like to see him no longer put his money in foreign banks. I would like to see him no longer invest in foreign nations but invest in America. And IF Romney is truely a Patriot then he could donate a chunk of money vs asking for donations to run for President and pay down the deficit. If elected President would Romney give up the nominal salary of $450 and ask it to be paid for on the debt. Would Romney also pay for Air Force One Flights and his own Healthcare? Not holding my breath, but That would be a Patriot.

    Big whoop. Obama has a medical doctor following him around all day, a custom helicopter that can land in his backyard and a 747 to take him and his friends where they want to go. That doesn't make him a bad guy.

    Who cares, it's his money. The people that would get mad are people that are jealous.

    Rotten Rich & showing off...

    Here's a rotten rich capitalist who constantly reminds the American public of his richly status by touting how many cars he has. He's now demonstrating nationally that his riches can easily afford him the luxury of building an elaborate elevator for his vintage cars.

    Hello! Is this the guys who's running for president? Isn't he the same guy who said LOUD & CLEAR that he is NOT concerned about the poor? In addition, didn't he say that he likes firing people?

    Americas, are we paying attention? Are we crazy enough to elect this guy as our president?????

    How much evidence do we need to prove that Mitt should have to pay at least the same rate of taxes as the people who build his garage or mow his lawn?
