Mitt Romney

WASHINGTON – Former Chrysler Corp. chairman and CEO Lee Iacocca is once again endorsing a presidential nominee – and once again, it’s the challenger he’s picking.

Iacocca put out a statement Thursday endorsing Republican Mitt Romney, saying the former investment fund head and Massachusetts governor has “dozens of years of experience in the public and private sectors” and a plan that “will enable a stronger America.”

Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly opt for Obama in polls as former governor is projected to lose state by more than 17 points.
Mitt Romney's current standing in the polls in Massachusetts gives him the dubious honor of being more unpopular in his home state than any presidential candidate in modern history.
They know him better than we do.

Hey you guys need something to whine about -- will it be the moderator, the size of the moderator, the questions, will you parse the difference between "acts of terror" or "act of terror".

Perhaps we will get another Big Bird fluffy moment or a binder full of women!

Obama has his work cut out for him.

How is he going to lay out his domestic plan in a debate on foreign policy?

He didn't give it at the DNC, nor in either of the two debates.

Oh, he has?

More of the same?

“If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”
--Barack Obama, 2009

It's been three years. Time for some 'change'.

"The most important lesson I've learned is that you can't change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from the outside."
--Barack Obama, 2012

Free Obama!

Let him change Washington from the outside.

Sandy, I am from massachusetts and I must say, that you do not know what you are talking about. Romney is originally from Michigan where his father was also Governor at one time. Romney didnt leave the state of Massachusetts in a large deficit such as the current Governor and personal Obama pal Deval Patrick has done. In fact just days after the DNC in Charlotte, a scndal broke here in Massachusetts that the transit authority outsourced to Korea to built doubledecker commuter trains and the Koreans didnt deliver the trains and had avoided all calls and state officials had to use tax payer money to go to Korea to get answers. This was in the face of Obama accusations about Romney outsourcing his own private money overseas. The next time you go in Staples, Sports Authority or a Horizon Day Care, think of Mitt Romney. He created those companies and they continue to thrive today. hes created other companies too through Bain Capital. The reality is Obama does not have skills to lead this country, he didnt 4 years ago, and thats why we are 16 trillion in debt, and he wont have any skills in the next 4 years. At least Romney will stop the bleeding and that is why I want to give him a chance. I will vote for Romney.

I disagree. Here is what David Stockman, Ronald Reagan’s budget director has to say about Romney and Bain... "Mitt Romney: The Great Deformer. Bain Capital is a product of the Great Deformation. It has garnered fabulous winnings through leveraged speculation in financial markets that have been perverted and deformed by decades of money printing and Wall Street coddling by the Fed. So Bain’s billions of profits were not rewards for capitalist creation; they were mainly windfalls collected from gambling in markets that were rigged to rise.
Mitt Romney was not a businessman; he was a master financial speculator who bought, sold, flipped, and stripped businesses. He did not build enterprises the old-fashioned way—out of inspiration, perspiration, and a long slog in the free market fostering a new product, service, or process of production. Instead, he spent his 15 years raising debt in prodigious amounts on Wall Street so that Bain could purchase the pots and pans and castoffs of corporate America, leverage them to the hilt, gussy them up as reborn “roll-ups,” and then deliver them back to Wall Street for resale—the faster the better.
That is the modus operandi of the leveraged-buyout business, and in an honest free-market economy, there wouldn’t be much scope for it because it creates little of economic value. But we have a rigged system—a regime of crony capitalism—where the tax code heavily favors debt and capital gains, and the central bank purposefully enables rampant speculation by propping up the price of financial assets and battering down the cost of leveraged finance."
