Liberal RINO-Mitt Romney will flip flop and say anything to try and win… he stands for nothing without an ounce of conviction on anything and this is what the right will send to the general election against our Osama-killing President to represent their political beliefs, ideology and platform?

LOL, he flip flopped in a matter of seconds last night when he went from hunting Moose to Elk.

Obama and his Democrat buddies did everything they could to derail those free trade agreements which were negotiated by the Bush Administration. Every one of them was ready to be passed in Obama's first of year of office, it's not a coincidence that it required a Republican-controlled House to get them passed. When Obama's party controlled Congress there was no interest in free trade whatsoever.

Also, the Colombian deal in particular expands their access to our market more than the other way around.

Does America Really want Mitt “Obama” Romney? I see a conflict of interest here in these lists. I see bigger bailouts and more debt on America. Romney IS bought and paid for by the bankers. The media is pro Romney because it does not want to lose its investments!
