  1. Recovery???? What recovery. Had Obama let thigns alone we would have recovered with low unemployment and growth at or above 5%. His,”fixing,” the problem is directly responsible for this mess and the arroance of him laughing at it no matter what the reason insults Americans who are struggling to survive in HIS economy.

  2. I really like him and I think he would do a great job for this corntuy. I really think, because I saw what he did for SLC, he could make a huge difference in our economy. McCain just seems too combative to me. Romney is a lot more diplomatic. What concerns me is that everyone keeps saying he wouldn’t be able to defeat the Clintons or Obama. We do have to have someone that can keep them out of office.

  3. No, I had written this beorfe I noticed your comment, but trashed it because I planned to work on it later. I found the article linked on Free Republic. This is what we are referring to when we talk about the Yankee Question: Romney supported the American Civil Rights Movement while governor.[99] His hardscrabble background and subsequent life experiences had given him a different perspective from the LDS Church policy on blacks;[15] he reflected, It was only after I got to Detroit that I got to know Negroes and began to be able to evaluate them and I began to recognize that some Negroes are better and more capable than lots of whites. [80] During his first State of the State address in January 1963, Romney declared that Michigan’s most urgent human rights problem is racial discrimination—in housing, public accommodations, education, administration of justice, and employment. [100] Romney helped create the state’s first civil rights commission.[101] When Martin Luther King, Jr. came to Detroit in June 1963 to stage a civil rights march, Romney issued a proclamation in support of the event and sent two representatives to it on his behalf, but did not attend himself because it was on a Sunday.[99] Romney did participate in a smaller march protesting housing discrimination the following Saturday in Grosse Pointe, after King had left.[99] Romney’s advocacy of civil rights brought him criticism from his own church; in January 1964, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles member Delbert L. Stapley wrote him that a proposed civil rights bill was vicious legislation and telling him that the Lord had placed the curse upon the Negro and it was not for men to remove it.[29][102] Romney refused to change his position and increased his efforts towards civil rights.[29][102] They don’t have quite the same experience as us.Integration was forced on Dixie in the Civil Rights Movement. OTOH, Yankees wanted integration and had been practicing integration for almost a hundred years in the Northern states by then.Northern ethnics in states like Michigan opposed George Romney. They voted for George Wallace in the 1972 Democratic presidential primary.Just the other day, I got into an argument with a clown at Free Republic, who proudly pointed out to me that Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Maine, and New Hampshire had given citizenship rights to blacks beorfe the 14th Amendment.

  4. Gingrich spent some years in France too when he was a teenager. And I rbeememr in the late 60 , these handsome young men, very friendly and speaking good french, ringing door bells to hand out leaflets, always in pairs. We would often let them in if they wanted a drink after telling them we were not interested in their speech. It was fun. And very different from our strict calvinist upbringing.
