    I would like to see a comparable list about Odumbo. I think the true resume would be shocking to most Americans. Can you say "Choom Gang"?

    (Don't know if this image is legitimate or not. I do know if it was Mitt Romney in the photograph, the media would be climbing over each other trying to interview all the guys shown, to get the dirt.)

    Things that are important to me about Mitt Romney:

    1. He was raised by a full set of parents, neither one abandoned the other or him. They taught him more spiritual value of America than not.
    2. He made his wealth in America, as in he HAS a stake in America's success, rather its downfall.
    3. He held real jobs of a private Executive as well as public Executive (Governorship) commanding real men and women... and an armed force (National Guard in Massachusetts).
    4. He more than survived a tough contest of vesting, called the Primary, against very good men and woman.

    I was lost during the last election cycle. Didn't like the way the country was going and wanted a change. Voted for Obama. Well, live and learn a little. I should have listened to the folks that had been around enough that told me I didn't want that much change.
    I'm voting for Mitt..

    Thank you for this post........:bowdown:

    I know it's a difficult thing to admit, and I know others who are still not going to publicly say what you just did......probably, the majority of them will never do that.

    I know some people who voted for Obama and are feeling betrayed. Some of these people so strongly believed in Obama, that it literally distroyed the relationship we had at one time. Maybe time can heal that, but we don't have that luxury if we are to steer America away from the hidden destruction that has been planned for it.

    Romney was never my choice, but at this time, a vote for Romney is a vote for America to shake this off and get on a better course.

    That is, in fact, the only point that matters.

    1. I don't know of, and have never heard of anyone who voted for McCain, who, having seen what transpired will vote for Obama now and wishes he did the first time.

    2. I know of PLENTY of people like you who voted for Obama, are sorry they did, and will not again.

    This gives me some hope that we might actually unseat him.

    It's a :crying: shame the GOP can't put forth a candidate that gives you many reasons why people should vote FOR him.

    If he wants it, he's going to have to fight for it. Presidential elections are no longer a place for Marquess of Queensberry rules. It a brass knuckles street brawl. Gentlemen finish last.

    It's a shame no one beat him. It's a contest.


    We need a new primary system, one where litte blue states don't give the wrong guys momentum. One that is essentially OVER before the larger conservative leaning state get input.

    You give a long list that shows he is a good moral person. You have shown me nothing that shows he knows how to distance himself from those morals while governing.

    Yes, he's not Obama. You have shown me nothing to show that he is BETTER than Obama. Change for the sake of change is useless.

    Being a moral person will attract more voters than it repels

    So we get a big government moralist. How is this an improvement?

    I'm not saying that being moral is bad. The problem is that many moral people feel the need to legislate their own personal morality.

    I'd rather have a Pres. with Christian morals than one without (or one that seems to shun them).

    While Gov. here he never had the "I know better than you" attitude or approach. And yes, I have even met the man.
