    It is laughable that people think Romneys business experience is going to suddenly create supply and demand. Is a President Romney going to go into each individual business and Bain them to death until they become profitable ? Who is going to look after the Presidential work while Magic Mitt puts his cape on and go's into every business and slashes taxes and creates supply and demand for US products. Romney would be busy 24-7-365 looking after business and nothing else the way he talks,but its not all CEO work there are people and the entire country to look after as well when you are President

    Spoked alert. The flip flopper saw the opportunity in various businesses and decided that labor was cheaper outside the US so he fired American workers and sent their jobs overseas then bankrupted companies and made millions at bain.
    I want to make sours that those banks only help my righ friends because my boy toy Nd I are going to take a lot of federal government money for the poor (Medicaid for starters).
    Yes, democrats and the whole country would like to know about specifics!!! So loopholes for the rich sill be closed? No more $77,000 deduction for a dancing horse? Yiu can't discuss anything sit congress because you will never be presiding. The citizens need to know BEFORE November you twit! Allowing the press to a cut service, how Mormon of you. Your religion wants to control the world. Isn't that why yiu and your sons instead of serving yiyr country went to or each your cut religion overseas? Obama divisiness? Remember your AK bim Bo in 2008 she started the hate and lies that you have continued to follow. Your policies? What are these again? Anti women, Blacks, gays, minorities, the poor, children, education? Defeat the Taliban when yiu wouldn't spend money or time taking down (as the President did) bin laden?NO, we want yiu to tell us hos your vp nominee has voted sit akin in budget and anti women rights!!

    My sons are all adults and they've made decisions about their careers
    and they've chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I
    respect their decision in that regard. One of the ways my sons are
    showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they
    think I'd be a great president."

    This interview was yet another side-stepping show by Romney. He talks about his economic "vision" but gives absolutely no specifics on how he'd pay for low taxes, reduced deficit, health care, education reform, cheap energy, and a huge defense department budget. To hear this chicken-hawk talk about tactical errors in fielding combat troops is laughable! He was a draft-dodger who spent his time on a soft Mormon "mission" in France! He knows absolutely nothing about foreign policy and has no concept of military operations. He wants our trust but won't show us his tax returns... What's he hiding? A felony?
