Paul Ryan the *** that ran for Vice President with Mitt Romney said "their is a culture of not working and not wanting to work in the black community. Then he reference this racist Charles Monroe who wrote a book years ago that blacks are mentally inferior to whites and we don't want to work due to a lazy gene. They said that it hereditary, we are lazy because it is in us! They say black people don't have any idea about working since NO ONE WORKS IN OUR COMMUNITY!! So we don't know what it is to work and get paid for it!!! These fpeople don't take responsibility for them not passing bills to create job. This coward never comes into the black community and yet he is some expert on matter pertaining to our plight. We all need to blow up his phone and let him know that he a liar and that what he need to talk about is all those Meff head that screwing their sisters in his own community. I am so tired of these *** Oreilly, Hannity, the fat slob Limbaugh, Grinwhich and Ryan trying to act like they understa ...
Timothy McGaffin II ~ On March 23 before the passing of the Enabling Act, Hitler said in his speech, “By its decision to carry out the political and moral cleansing of our public life, the Government is creating and securing the conditions for a really deep and inner religious life.” Former Governor Mitt Romney, when asked in a presidential debate held in South Carolina on January 16, 2012 that was televised on Fox News, whether he would have signed NDAA as written if he were president, Romney answered, “Yes I would have.” Romney continued by saying, when referring to President Obama and then to himself “...I don't think he's (referring to Obama) going to abuse this power and I know if I were President I would not abuse this power. And I can also tell you that in my view you have to choose people who you believe have sufficient character not to abuse the power of the presidency and to make sure we do not violate our constitutional principles..." Leaders in both countries assured the people that ...
1/16/08 Congratulations Larry: The only thing that was missing from your show was that this message was not paid for by Mitt Romney. Unfortunately we the people do not need another CEO President of the United State, which if Romney wins a trip to the White House you should definitely get to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom. Moreover, what is truly sad is that Democrats that completely boycotted the State of Michigan. John Edwards who understandably wants to win South Carolina missed a clear opportunity to collect a needed victory in Michigan without competition. Mrs. Clinton clearly picked up an easy victory without appearance and in my view is the only Democrat that could win if Michigan becomes the next Ohio, or Florida. I only hope that Michigan does understand that Romney is not a compassionate conservative just as George W. Bush was not a compassionate conservative either. Michigan would clearly suffer the faith of Massachusetts under the next four years under Romney as president. Larry how many o ...
05:00 PM ET What does it say that most of the 10 poorest states are Republican? FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty: As the Republican race for the White House heats up, here's something the GOP can't be too comfortable with: Most of the 10 poorest states in the country are Republican. Mississippi is the poorest... followed by Arkansas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Louisiana, Montana, South Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama and North Carolina. And the list doesn't even include Texas, where Rick Perry is governor and one in five people lives in poverty. In a piece on CNN.com, Roland Martin writes Republicans expect to win all 10 of these states in 2012, although President Obama won North Carolina by a slim margin in 2008 and West Virginia is usually considered a Democratic state. Martin points out that despite the red-leanings in these states, you don't hear so much from Republicans about poverty. In fact the word "poor" has barely come up at the GOP debates thus far. The only exceptions were: – Rick Santorum discussing wel ...
THE TRAITOR John Mccain IS AT IT AGAIN...IT IS MORE THAN TIME FOR MCCAIN TO GO...THE SOONER THE BETTER ! Dear Patriot, Senator John Mccain is at it again. McCain appeared on Fox News and blamed the Tea Party for President Obama's decision to delay veterans' death benefits during the shutdown. The decision to do so was entirely at the president's discretion, yet John Mccain blamed the Tea Party. Our latest piece examines McCain's ludicrous reasoning. Read here. McCain also claimed that he campaigned harder than anyone for the repeal of Obamacare by campaigning with Mitt Romney during 2012. Campaigning with the candidate whose Romneycare served as the template for Obamacare qualifies as campaigning for repeal in McCain's mind, even though most of us would see it differently. We're in South Carolina targeting another guy McCain likes to campaign with, Lindsey Graham. Your donations have helped us beat back the President on Syria, on Larry Summers, and on gun control. Well, today you can help us beat back ...
I saw a CNBC article on the Internet that identified the 10 poorest states in the country: Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky, New Mexico, South Carolina, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Louisiana, Tennessee. All but New Mexico are in the south and voted Mitt Romney. I wonder why that is? For real, I wonder.
Election Previews; Mark Sanders Victory Proves that 2010 Midterm Momentum still Favor GOP & Obama Democrat Liberals struggling within State Elections. Maybe radical leftist Obama may be winning national elections, but as Obama’s job ratings fall, GOP are still benefiting in state elections. What Mark Sanford’s victory, formerly a governor, who had resigned over a scandal involving an affair with an Argentinian woman, is unheard of. A formerly disgraced Republican getting re-elected after a MAJOR scandal, but this shows that South Carolina voters preferred a GOP marital cheater, over hardcore Obama, leftist liberal pallbearers of his policies. “Mark Sanford; once a rising GOP star considered presidential material — was an early favorite in the Republican district, which Mitt Romney carried by 18 percentage points in the 2012 election. But the revelation that Sanford's ex-wife, Jenny, accused the candidate of trespassing at her home caused the National Republican Congressional Committee to withdraw ...
USA - Homophobia in GOP makes it hard for party to compete nationally (Peter Beinart) There’s nothing cooler in today’s overwhelmingly white, overwhelmingly Anglo Republican Party than being neither. For its State of the Union rebuttal, the GOP tapped Cuban-American Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Rubio had already introduced Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention, while Puerto Rican first lady Lucé Vela Fortuño introduced Romney’s wife, Ann. When a Senate seat opened up in South Carolina last December, party elders chose African-American Rep. Tim Scott. And Republicans have just founded a new organization to groom minorities in the party. The GOP will never rebound, explains the group’s chairman, African-American former Republican congressman J.C. Watts, “until you get people that look like me in the trenches.” Republicans probably overestimate the traction they’ll get from changing the color and accents of their pitchmen. There’s something deeply patronizing about the GOP’s assu ...
Five years ago: Barack Obama routed Hillary Rodham Clinton in the South Carolina primary. Maria Sharapova won the Australian Open, beating Ana Ivanovic 7-5, 6-3 for her third Grand Slam singles title. Mirai Nagasu, at 14, became the second-youngest female (after Tara Lipinski) to win the title at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships held in St. Paul, Minn. Christian Brando, the troubled eldest son of the late actor Marlon Brando, died in Los Angeles at age 49. Radical PLO leader George Habash died in Amman, Jordan, at age 81. One year ago: The Pentagon outlined a plan for slowing the growth of military spending, including cutting the size of the Army and Marine Corps, retiring older planes and trimming war costs. An aggressive Mitt Romney repeatedly challenged Republican rival Newt Gingrich in their final debate before the critical Florida primary. Capping three days of mourning, some 12,000 people — including Penn State students, fans and football stars — paid tribute to the late Joe Paterno in a ca ...
One year ago this week, Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary, blunting Mitt Romney's momentum and challenging the Palmetto State's perfect, modern day prediction of picking the GOP nominee. When we arrived in South Carolina for the key CNN debate, we fully expected Texas Gov.
The president's gone golfing 113 times, playing 52 times close to the White House at Andrews Air Force Base. And Obama's taken 13 vacations, which all told have spanned 83 days. Though he has visited 44 states as president, Obama has not travelled to Arkansas, Idaho, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, all states that voted for Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election. In all, he's made 245 "domestic trips," which does not include any travel in Washington, D.C. or the surrounding area.
Late Night Jokes: Will Ann Romney Dance With the Stars? The Tonight Show With Jay Leno President Obama said this week that he wants to find a "pathway for citizenship" for immigrants in the United States. Don't we have that? It's called the Rio Grande river. Thousands of dead fish have now washed up on shore along the coast of South Carolina. Today the NRA said that this wouldn't have happened if those fish had guns. Ann Romney, the wife of Mitt Romney, has reportedly turned down a chance to appear on “Dancing With the Stars.†Apparently, she has something called "self-respect."

January 2012 in the Republican Primaries On January 3rd, 2012, the expectation is that Ron Paul or Mitt Romney will win Iowa. But in the end, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania emerges as the victor by only 34 votes due to his successful grassroots efforts in the state. Because of her minuscule amount of votes in her own birth state, Congressman Michele Bachmann drops out of the race the next day. Next came the New Hampshire primaries, which resulted in Mitt Romney's landslide victory. Despite grassroots efforts there, Former Governor/Ambassador Jon Huntsman placed only third and as it did not raise his numbers in polls for the South Carolina primary, he dropped as well. Governor Rick Perry of Texas also dropped after disastrous results in Iowa and New Hampshire. This narrowed the race down to Romney, Paul, Gingrich, and Santorum. In the South Carolina primary on January 21st, Romney was expected to win and then clinch the nomination, but Gingrich campaigned fiercely and along with his deba ...
6.52 AM: Mitt Romney has won in Indiana, astate won by President Barack Obama four years ago. Romney is also the winner in South Carolina, a state where Obama is deeply unpopular. Those states have 20 electoral votes between them. Obama has won his home state of Illinois, as well as Mitt Romney's home state of Massachusetts and Vice President Joe Biden's home state of Delaware. There have been no surprises in the returnsso far from Eastern and Midwestern states. Obama wins the 20 electoral votes in Illinois, and the 11 in Massachusetts, along with 10 in Maryland and Delaware's three. He's also the winner in Connecticut, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia. And in Maine, which splits its electoral votes, Obama has won at least three of the four votes. Romney won in Oklahoma, with seven electoral votes. 6.50 AM: According to CNN, with 56 per centof precincts reporting in Florida, Romney stands at 51 per cent and Obama at 48 per cent among 4.3 million ballots. With 13 per cent of precincts reporting in ...
I don't know if any of you saw it or not today, but South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsay Graham said today that if Mitt Romney loses and he hears republicans complaining that Romney wasn't conservative enough, that "I'll go nuts. He further said": "We're not losing 95% of African-Americans and two-thirds of ... and voters under 30 because we're not being hard *** enough" Of course, in South Carolina during Graham's re-election a couple years back, the Republicans put campaign signs out along the highway talking about how Lindsay Graham is “Too liberal for South Carolina.” So, just for a refresher to add to the list of Republicans who are too "liberal" for this new age Romney/Ryan Republican Party: President Ronald Reagan President George H.W. Bush Governor Jon Huntsman (Utah) Governor Gary Johnson (New Mexico) Senator *** Lugar (Indiana) Senator Lindsay Graham (South Carolina) Senator Arlen Specter (Pennsylvania, deceased) General/Secretary of State for Bush II Colin Powell Colonel Lawrence Wil . ...
TheRoot.com,WashingtonPost on Campaign 2012 (HEHE! SMH!): Goldwater's anti-civil-rights stance earned him the support of Deep South states, making him the first Republican since Reconstruction to carry Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and Louisiana. Operating with a well-earned inner sense of peril, African Americans voted overwhelmingly against Goldwater, helping to hand Johnson a landslide victory. A retreat on progress toward racial equality was averted. What would be the consequences for race of a Mitt Romney victory? A Romney takeover of the White House might well rival Andrew Johnson's ascendancy to the presidency after Abraham Lincoln's assassination in 1865 ... A Romney win would be worrisome, however, because of his strong embrace of states rights and his deep mistrust of the federal government — sentiments Andrew Johnson shared.
Marion County Ohio lies about 50 miles north of Columbus, the state capital. The county was named after General Francis Marion of the Revolutionary War. Marion is more often remembered by his nickname Swamp Fox, because of his guerilla style warfare against the British in the swamps of South Carolina. There are about 66,000 residents in this quiet little county in central Ohio, and like the rest of the state, a number of those residents have been trying to vote early in the presidential election. But when Marion County resident Joan Stevens tried to vote on Monday she ran into a problem that caused her some alarm. When she touched the screen to vote for Mitt Romney, the machine lit up the name of Barack Obama. Joan tried a second time and again the machine lit up Barack Obama when she selected Mitt Romney. Knowing she did not want to cast her vote for Obama, she tried a third time and finally, the name Mitt Romney lit up. After leaving the voting machine, Joan reported the malfunction to board of ele ...
Next TOP 28 REASONS. In 1979, Mitt Romney helped a dying fourteen-year old boy named David write his will and delivered the eulogy at his funeral. At a campaign stop in South Carolina, Mitt emptied his wallet for a woman having trouble paying her light bill named Ruth Williams. The woman was in difficult circumstances due to her desperately ill son. Although Mitt Romney had the opportunity to attend Stanford, he took a risk and bypassed it to attend Brigham Young University, where his future wife was enrolled. As recounted, Mitt Romney was worried about Ann Davie being wooed by other suitors after he received a “Dear John” letter. As governor, Romney hired more women to his economic team than any other in the country. Although Mitt Romney is personally against abortion, he has respected a woman’s ‘right to choose’ and vowed not to make abortion legislation a part of his presidential agenda. While Romney is a proponent of “traditional marriage,” and is not in favor of civil unions, he has not ...
Don't Throw Away Your Vote If you are a South Carolinian and support President Obama for re-election you should consider voting for the Green Party candidate for that office. Your vote for Barrack Obama for president is meaningless. South Carolina will elect to cast all its Electoral College votes for Mitt Romney. Voting for President Obama in South Carolina is simply throwing your vote away. By all means, do not fail to vote for the Democratic candidates for all other races, if that is your preference. Those candidates have some chance of winning and deserve your support. While I believe the president will be re-elected, it will be without the support of South Carolina in the Electoral College. On the other hand, if the Green Party can get five percent or more of the total votes cast in this general election it will qualify for federal campaign funds for 2016. Should the Green Party achieve that number, it will have a chance to get its message out to the American people. For the same reason, voters who p ...
So, back to taxes ... Mitt Romney was clear about his disdain for Americans who he claimed don't pay federal income taxes during his infamous "47 percent" rant in May. Yet, one of the guests at that fund raiser in Boca Raton was a convicted tax cheat who went to jail for failing to pay a quarter of a million dollars in federal taxes. In 2008, James Batmasian pled guilty to a felony tax evasion charge for failing to pay more than $250,000 in federal taxes for employees at his company, Investments Limited. He was sentenced to eight months at a South Carolina federal prison and a subsequent two years of supervised release. Along with serving prison time, he had to pay the outstanding taxes and was also fined an additional $30,000. At the time, he was the largest property owner in downtown Boca Raton. Following his conviction, Batmasian, an attorney, was suspended from practicing law by the Florida Supreme Court. So Mittens, you denounce the poor for not paying their share of taxes, but have no problem hangin ...
Nose Counting The idea of examining large precinct results came via a link to a report written by Francois Choquette and James Johnson. Choquette became curious about South Carolina primary results in the February Republican contest. There a poll observer noted an unusually big gain of votes for Mitt Romney in larger precincts than in smaller ones. Choquette wanted to know why? He examined and applied all of the normal statistical markers to see where a variance might occur: income level, population density, race, urban vs. rural, even party registration numbers. He found no correlation to explain why Romney votes trended upward while Paul and Santorum votes trended downward -yet only in large precincts. Choquette then looked at all 50 states and found roughly a 10% switch in votes from Democrat to GOP. This was noted in every state except Utah, where the presumption was, as it was Mitt’s religious home state and very conservative, there was no chance of Romney losing and no variance was found. Choquett ...
“Now I have no doubt that Mitt Romney was worried about pink slips — whether he was going to have enough of them to hand out because his company Bain Capital with all the jobs that they killed, I’m sure he was worried that he’d run out of pink slips. There is something inherently wrong when getting rich off failure and sticking it to someone else is how you do your business and I happen to think that’s indefensible. If you’re a victim of Bain Capital’s downsizing, it’s the ultimate insult for Mitt Romney to come to South Carolina and tell you he feels your pain, because he caused it.” ~Rick Perry, South Carolina, January 9, 2012

South Carolina congressman, Joe Wilson, shouted "you lie!!" during one of our president's congressional addresses. Arizona state governor, Jan Brewer, shook her finger in our president's face just as he had disembarked his plane in her state. Former Massachusetts state governor, Mitt Romney, shows unprecedented disrespect for our president throughout the 2nd presidential debate. Today, Romney's son, Tagg Romney, states in a National Radio program that he wants to physically assault our president and certain conservatives attempt to push New York Catholic Church cardinal Timothy Dolan to insult our president by dis-inviting him to a special party ("roast") to which attendance by the presidential candidates, has become a tradition. George W. Bush was, by far, the worst performing president I've witnessed in my lifetime and he did not encounter anywhere near the disrespect from citizens of his own country that has been endured by President Obama, who's job performance has verifiably shown steady, though slo ...
Last year at this time, Mitt Romney was at the Citadel in South Carolina, another military college, where he delivered his first full-blown foreign policy speech of the campaign: Our next President will face many difficult and complex foreign policy decisions. Few will be black and white. But I am here today to tell you that I am guided by one overwhelming conviction and passion: This century must be an American Century. In an American Century, America has the strongest economy and the strongest military in the world. In an American Century, America leads the free world and the free world leads the entire world. [...] Let me make this very clear. As President of the United States, I will devote myself to an American Century. And I will never, ever apologize for America. This guy sounds exactly like Joseph Stalin sounded the last year before and right after world war two.
Thirty-nine days before the Presidential election, Mitt Romney doesn't appear to be the formidable challenge to President Obama that many expected. Indeed, Romney's ineptness has turned the tide in Obama's favor. What happened? A year ago, when the slate of Republican presidential candidates formed, it was Mitt Romney versus the "seven dwarfs:" Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Paul, Pawlenty, Perry, and Santorum. Many observers believed Romney would roll over his opponents and quickly garner the Republican nomination. Instead, Rick Santorum won the Iowa caucuses and Newt Gingrich won in South Carolina. For an instant it appeared Mitt might not be the nominee; then he turned on his money machine and swamped the others. At the end of April the Republican National Committee declared Romney the presumptive nominee. Romney is a reengineered George W. Bush. Both men are the sons of successful Republican politicians; George Romney was Governor of Michigan; George H.W. Bush was President of the United States. Both were ...
With the presidential election just a few weeks away, a panel of three federal judges this week questioned whether South Carolina should wait until 2014 to put its voter ID law into effect. As attorneys for South Carolina delivered closing arguments in the trial over the validity of a new state law in the state, the judges case is pondered whether the law would discriminate against minorities. Last December, the Justice Department refused to "preclear" the law — find it complies with the Voting Rights Act — so it could go into effect. Voter identification laws have become a major point of contention in this year's presidential election, given the close race between Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, a Democrat. These laws could prevent key constituencies from voting, making a difference for Democrats in tight races. While supporters have pitched the laws as tools against voter fraud and to build confidence in the election system, the laws are in reality a Republican response ...
This seems reasonable wonder why anyone would argue ...unless .. well ... maybe ... they shouldn't be voting and someone needs the votes...WASHINGTON - South Carolina is in federal court arguing that its new law requiring people prove their identity at the polls won't make voting so tough that it reduces turnout of African-Americans, Hispanics and other minorities. A federal panel is to determine whether South Carolina's voter identification law violates the Voting Rights Act by putting heavy burdens on minorities who don't have the identification. Last December, the Justice Department refused to allow South Carolina to require the photo IDs, saying doing so would reverse the voting gains of the states' minorities. Closing arguments in the case — which went to trial in August and included several state officials as witnesses — were scheduled for Monday. South Carolina has said it would implement the law immediately if the three-judge panel upholds it, although a decision either way is likely to be app ...
What was Mitt Romney thinking? by Walter Smith, publisher New York Beacon It’s not difficult to understand why Romney made the comments he made at his fund raiser in Florida. He most likely got his buzz words confused. His reference was to those who had been characterized as lazy, shiftless, and always looking for a handout. You don’t have to be a literary genius to figure that one out. Unfortunately, since the inception of the “Southern Manifesto” of 1956, which stated in principal that it’s purpose was to overturn the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education ruling and to effectively fight any legislation proposed to benefit Blacks, most election rhetoric has supported that premise.The manifesto was signed by 99 politicians (97 Democrats) from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Since that time, each and every national election has had its racial overtones. Street crime, and welfare reform buzz words, were desig ...

Good read... By KIMBERLEY A. STRASSEL Tampa, Fla. Republicans meet at the Tampa Bay Times Forum this week to spell out their vision for the country. It needn't be an exercise in imagination. The party's transformative spirit is already on vivid display, thanks to a crop of reformist Republican governors. With the GOP stymied in Washington, these state leaders—from Chris Christie in New Jersey to Scott Walker in Wisconsin—have become the heart of the conservative movement, many pursuing the sort of thorough overhauls of government once considered impossible. In many cases, the changes are already showing dramatic, positive economic results. Think of the reform governors as the vanguard of the far-reaching policy reforms that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan now want to bring to the national arena. "If you want a sense of what the party is, what it really stands for, and what it can do, this is the right place to start," says one of the trailblazers, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels. He has cut his state's budget, r ...
Whiteboard Face Off: ThinkProgress Takes On Romney’s Medicare Madness By Igor Volsky on Aug 16, 2012 at 12:58 pm Mitt Romney offered a white board presentation during a news briefing in South Carolina on Thursday morning that sought to untangle the campaign’s contradictory message about Medicare. Over the last week, Romney and Ryan have twisted themselves into a pretzel to attack President Obama for “stealing” $716 billion from Medicare, while trying to explain why Paul Ryan included the savings in his FY 2013 budget. Romney had previously pledged to sign the document into law. During the presentation, Romney tried to lay out the differences. Obama takes the money out of seniors’ Medicare Advantage plans and cuts payments to providers, causing some to lose his coverage, he argued. The program’s trust fund would go bankrupt by 2024, under Obama, and seniors would lose access to the care they need. His plan, alternatively, would preserve the program for current retirees and keep it solvent indef ...

Mitt Romney Picks Another Iran-Contra Convict For NSA ! PNAC/FPI Co-Conspirator Elliott Abrams The phony media polls show a tight race, but senior GOP foreign-policy hands are already jostling for consideration for top positions in a potential Mitt Romney administration. In a move to highlight his national security credentials in the GOP presidential race, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has publicized a new roster of campaign advisers working on foreign policy and defense issues. The announcement comes ahead of a major foreign policy speech that Romney was scheduled to deliver at the Citadel military college in South Carolina last Friday. The new team, which the Romney campaign listed in a PR announcement to the press on Thursday, draws heavily on Bush neocon Republicans with UN policy credentials–a clear point of continuity with the playbook the Romney campaign has adopted in domestic, social and economic policy. Here, for example, is a partial list of some of the more prominent former Bush Whit ...

From its initial base in Indiana, Steel Dynamics has grown to include plants in Roanoke, Virginia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Huntington, West Virginia. Additional operations, including mining, recycling and steel fabrication centers have created jobs across Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Minnesota, Florida, Arkansas, and N ...
I HAVE NO FEAR, I DO NOT CARE, I WILL NOT LOOSE TO THEM EITHER. -ITS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN... - Duane LangenbergGOING ROGUE- NEWT AND SARAH Catalina Camia, USAToday Newt Gingrich has insisted he's not dropping out of the presidential race and will fight all the way to the Republican National Convention. But will the former House speaker be able to make the first ballot in Tampa? There's been lots of talk in the last couple of days about a GOP rule that states a candidate has to have a plurality of delegates from at least five states to get on the ballot at the convention this August. Gingrich has only won two states -- South Carolina and Georgia -- so far in the GOP race and lags well behind front-runner Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in delegates. The rule would also seem to apply to Ron Paul, who has yet to win a state or primary and has the fewest convention delegates based on a tally by the Associated Press.

George re: Condi as a potential VP candidate: "My phone has been buzzing today with media inquiries about the rumor that Mitt Romney is considering naming Dr. Condoleeza Rice as his running mate. The reason is Governor Romney's answer to a question I put to him back in September at the Palmetto Freedom Forum in South Carolina, where I had the honor of joining Senator Jim DeMint and Congressman Steve King as a questioner. My question was whet...her the Governor would choose a running mate who shared his pro-life and pro-marriage convictions. He said that he "expected" to do that and then that he "would" do it. I followed up by asking him to make clear whether it was "expect" or "would." He replied by saying that he did not merely, expect to choose a pro-life and pro-marriage running mate, but would do it. I and others took this as a clear commitment. The exchange begins in this video just after the 13 minute mark:" More
I a republican solely on the Ideology of capitalism(free enterprise). Only in a total capitalist society were there is upward mobility that I a black man that is a high school dropout from a small itty-bitty town in South Carolina that was homeless one minute - then would travel many places in the world, be diverse in many cultures, and attend a prestigious private university the next minute. Can actually compare a similar from nothing to something path to a U.S. general and 18th president Ulysses S. Grant(a white man). I was very disappointed in Mitt Romney's disgraceful speech during a NAACP Conference today. also the black republican politician posse he rode in with. I respect the fact he attended and acknowledge us as voting citizens, but to have the audacity to ridicule not only the president, but the first african american president in front of black folks; are you crazy! It really does not matter I was voting for President Obama anyway.

Rick Perry: "We're checking to see if it's in the Bible" Gov. Chris Christy: "I'm told it provides mass to everything and has no spin. That's why I have so many." Herman Cain: "I'll bet 9-9-9 is really a fundamental atomic number." Rick Santorum: "I'll check with God." Mitt Romney: "The Higgs boson doesn't affect the Mitt top quark that transfers money to the Cayman Islands at the speed of light." Newt Gingrich: "We need a national particle zoo to stay ahead of the Swiss." Mayor Mike Bloomberg: "We will not tolerate a 2,000 calorie McBoson in NYC." Tea Party Spokesman Jim Dement: "I'm sure the Democrats want to tax it, but South Carolina will resist." Donald Trump: "My people will be checking the Birth Certificate for this boson thing to see if it's real." Chief Justice Roberts: "It could be a weight penalty or a tax on weigh ...
A new lawsuit against the GOP by delegates to the Republican National Convention claims that they have been illegally coerced into voting for Mitt Romney for the party’s presidential nominee and they are demanding to be “unbound” to vote their conscience in favor of another candidate.

District Court in California.

Found this info on Bain Capital Mitt Romney.. In his time at Bain Capital.. Bain became majority shareholder in Kansas City-based Worldwide Grinding Systems, 750 people lost their jobs, workers were denied health benefits and severance pay and pensions were cut, reported Reuters. The firm eventually needed a $44 million federal bailout to cover pension losses. The acquisition, however, was lucrative for Bain's investors--the firm invested $24.5 million and got a $58.4 million return! Romney's firm also laid off about 150 workers from the Holson Burnes Group in South Carolina, while earning $22 million from its initial investment, a return of over 20 percent. Twenty-two percent of businesses Bain took over filed for bankruptcy or shut down, and all of the money invested was lost on eight percent of the company's acquisitions, the paper found. Bain partnership bought KB Toys in 2000, putting up $18 million and borrowing the rest, $302 million, the Times reported. Less than a year and a half later, KB Toys b ...
When the Obama campaign released a pair of commercials earlier this month depicting Bain as a “vampire” that raided corporations with little regard for job losses, it largely mirrored similar efforts by Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry during the South Carolina primary this January.
By Karl Rove May 24, 2012 Romney's Roads to the White House A 3-2-1 strategy can get him to the magic 270 electoral votes. On Tuesday, Gallup's seven-day tracking poll had Barack Obama and Mitt Romney tied at 46%. With the incumbent stuck below 50% on the ballot and Mr. Romney's favorability rising, the Republican challenger has a good shot at winning. To take the White House, Mr. Romney needs 270 votes in the Electoral College. A "3-2-1" strategy will get him there. If Mr. Romney carries the states John Mccain won in 2008 and regains Nebraska's second district (the state awards three of its five electoral votes by congressional district, the other two to the statewide winner), the Electoral College will be 14 votes closer than the 365-to-173 total in 2008. That's because the 2010 Census cost blue states such as Massachusetts, New York and Illinois congressional seats—and electoral votes—while red states such as South Carolina, Georgia and Texas gained seats. None of Mr. McCain's states appear in real ...
Avik Roy writes on NRO: Newt Gingrich’s comeback victory against Mitt Romney in South Carolina can be attributed to many things — Newt’s debate performances, Mitt’s tax returns, etc. But it all started when Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry tore into Mitt Romney’s involvement in Bain Capital.
