This whackjob wants to change the US Constitution so that only those in business can be POTUS.

That would eliminate Ronald Reagan and Dwight Eisenhower, the two Roosevelts and JFK.

Two BUSINESSMEN George W. Bush and Herbert Hoover are among the two worst POTUS's in history.

What it takes to run a country with coequal branches of government and hundreds of millions of constituents is not what it takes to pillage existing businesses for as much cash as you can bleed out of them to enrich yourself.

Romney is not fit to be POTUS.

Romputz's plan to pay even lower taxes himself.

1. Reduce the corporate tax rate

2. Eliminate investment taxes on the first $200K of income

3. Eliminate estate tax

He would save the corporations he invests in tons of money and his estate tons of money. He would plug this 1/2 TRILLION dollar hole but screwing the middle class and the poor.

This is how Romputz rolls....everything for himself and his rich family and nothing for the country. Tax breaks do not create jobs. If they did then Bumbler Bush's tax breaks would have led to massive job growth not 850,000/month in job losses.

Best label about Romputz to date:

Romney fetishizes wealth. He has a perverted relationship with money.

1. Brags about his wife's dressage horses and cars.

2. Brags that he ignores the very poor.

3. Believes corporations are people.

" Even as the rest of the country was enjoying a brightening economy, during Romney's term Massachusetts plummeted to 47th out of 50 states in job creation; manufacturing jobs declined at twice the national average; and for the first time since 1995, its unemployment rate was above the national average.

Long-term debt ballooned by more than $2.6 billion -- leaving the people of Massachusetts with the highest per capita debt of any state in the nation. State spending increased every single year, and Romney raised taxes and fees by $750 million per year -- leading to a higher state and local tax burden of $1,200 for every Bay Stater. Over his term, fees at public colleges skyrocketed by 63 percent, and during his first year, K-12 schools saw the second-largest percentage cuts, per student, in the nation.

All that in just four years.

Mitt Romney promised more jobs, less debt, and smaller government for Massachusetts based solely on his experience as a corporate buyout specialist. Turns out that being good at maximizing profits for yourself and your investors, but leaving companies bankrupt and workers without jobs, doesn't exactly prepare you to lead a state -- or a country.

Yet Romney's out there making the same empty promises all over again. And we've got to make sure no one buys it this time.

The bottom line? Romney Economics didn't work for Massachusetts then, and it won't work for America now."

Romney says this is an example of crisis management. Only Romney would consider this a crisis because only Romney would consider it acceptable to place a dog on the roof of a speeding car. So Romney creates a crisis through inhumane acts and fixes it inhumanely and brags about it.

More proof that Romney is a sociopath.

"A Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey found that 74% of Democrats, 66% of Independents, and 63% of Republicans consider it inhumane to put a family dog in a kennel on the roof of a car. "

Romney's war on women and war on minorities and war on the disabled and war on veterans continues. Note how the coward did this quietly when he thought no one was paying attention.

This is what a backwards, regressive Romney administration would look like.

"Mitt Romney scuttled the Massachusetts government's long-standing affirmative action policies with a few strokes of his pen on a sleepy holiday six months after he became governor.

No news conference or news release trumpeted Romney's executive order on Bunker Hill Day, June 17, 2003, in the deserted Statehouse. But when civil rights leaders, black lawmakers and other minority groups learned of Romney's move two months later, it sparked a public furor.

Romney drew criticism for cutting the enforcement teeth out of the law and rolling back more than two decades of affirmative action advances.

Civil rights leaders said his order stripped minorities, women, disabled people and veterans of equal access protections for state government jobs and replaced them with broad guidelines. They complained Romney hadn't consulted them before making the changes, snubbing the very kind of inclusion he professed to support."

"Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz said the election of Mitt Romney as president in November would “significantly” raise the odds of a recession because it would herald a shift to a much tighter budget.

History shows that the adoption of fiscal austerity when an economy is weak can have disastrous consequences, as happened in the U.S. in 1929 on the eve of the Great Depression"

bloomberg

The entire point of the Republicon party is to destroy the recovery this year in order to win election points and to keep it derailed permanently in order to destroy the middle class.

Look at what austerity is doing to Europe. This is what the Republicons want to do to the US.

"First, there was the appointment of Mike Leavitt, a former Utah governor and Health and Human Services secretary, to lead a potential Romney transition team.

Since leaving office at the end of George W. Bush's term, Leavitt has been running a group that has, among other things, been working to help states implement key portions of the law Romney has vowed to eliminate.

Needless to say, that didn't go over well among those who worry that Romney might not really be serious about obliterating the federal health law, which bears a striking resemblance to the one he signed as governor of Massachusetts."

"But it's not just old emails where Romney's penchant to defend the mandate sneaks out. Here's how he described the Massachusetts law during a January GOP debate in Jacksonville:

"If you don't want to buy insurance, then you have to help pay for the cost of the state picking up your bill, because under federal law if someone doesn't have insurance, then we have to care for them in the hospitals, give them free care. So we said, no more, no more free riders. We are insisting on personal responsibility."

"Though an early supporter of the Vietnam War, Romney avoided military service at the height of the fighting after high school by seeking and receiving four draft deferments, according to Selective Service records. They included college deferments and a 31-month stretch as a "minister of religion" in France, a classification for Mormon missionaries that the church at the time feared was being overused. The country was cutting troop levels by the time he became eligible for the draft, and his lottery number was not called.

President Barack Obama, Romney's opponent in this year's campaign, did not serve in the military either. The Democrat, 50, was a child during the Vietnam conflict and did not enlist when he was older.

But because Romney, now 65, was of draft age during Vietnam, his military background -- or, rather, his lack of one -- is facing new scrutiny as he courts veterans and makes his case to the nation to be commander in chief. He's also intensified his criticism lately of Obama's plans to scale back the nation's military commitments abroad, suggesting that Romney would pursue an aggressive foreign policy as president that could involve U.S. troops.

...Critics note that the candidate is among three generations of Romneys -- including his father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, and five sons -- who were of military age during armed conflicts but did not serve."

The Mutt lying about this even now.

"It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam, but nor did I take any actions to remove myself from the pool of young men who were eligible for the draft," Romney told the newspaper.

But that's exactly what Romney did, according Selective Service records. He received his first deferment for "activity in study" in October 1965 while at Stanford.

....After his first year at Stanford, Romney qualified for 4-D deferment status as "a minister of religion or divinity student." It was a status he would hold from July 1966 until February 1969, a period he largely spent in France working as a Mormon missionary.

He was granted the deferment even as some young Mormon men elsewhere were denied that same status, which became increasingly controversial in the late 1960s. The Mormon church, a strong supporter of American involvement in Vietnam, ultimately limited the number of church missionaries allowed to defer their military service using the religious exemption."

OregonSUX: Why do you bother posting your worthless ignorant left wing BS? No one is taking anything you say seriously. You are obviously a cheap religious bigot. Romney will be the next president of the United States. Obama and his putrid stench will go down in flames. Get used to it.

Mutt Romnutz's war on women strikes again. Mutt Romnutz's religion believes that women are not worthy of the priesthood and should be eternally pregnant in the afterlife.

Since he believes in these things why should Mutt Romputz support a woman's right to equal pay for equal work? Mutt is a sexist and a racist and the perfect candidate for the GOPOX whose convention will still likely be 96% white and 72% male.

"What have women done to Senate Republicans, House Republicans and Mitt Romney that they oppose a woman receiving equal pay for an honest day's work?

...Republicans oppose and blockade the rights of women and their families to earn a good living that is deserved and earned by good and honest work on the job.

Again, Mitt Romney tries to play both sides. He was for pay equity before he was against it, but in truth he is against it. Period.

"When Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents of his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer – a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.

...We all thought,‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’ And after that, we didn’t have much interaction with him,” although both Madden and Romney were prep school boys living in the same dorm, called Rinconada.

Other eyewitnesses have previously recalled Romney’s alleged use of a police or trooper uniform in pranks during his high school years at the exclusive Cranbrook School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan."

NM

Really? There is a reason that he had a 34% approval rating in Mass and that 75% of Republicons wanted someone else this year....they just couldn't find someone who wasn't completely insane. Romnutz is just moderately insane and, hence, the nominee.

Mitch Daniels is still kicking himself in the arse.

WSJ:

"How Romney Pushed State Health Bill

Emails Show Governor Defending Insurance Mandate for Massachusetts Resident"

...Mr. Romney once trumpeted the overhaul as his signature achievement as governor

...Using an argument deployed today by the Obama administration, Mr. Romney defended the mandate by noting that taxpayers generally foot the bill when the uninsured seek health care.

...“We must have an individual mandate for any plan to work,” Tim Murphy, Mr. Romney’s health secretary, wrote the governor and several aides on Feb. 16, 2006, in an email analyzing the latest confidential Democratic proposal, which he wrote was “unclear” about that requirement.

...The idea to publicly name companies apparently came as aides were trying to find other ways to motivate employers to give insurance.

"I know the dems hate this, but we can also [throw] back in the Gov's original notion of having some sort of 'public disclosure' of employers who promote a culture of uninsurance," wrote Cindy Gillespie, a top Romney adviser, to other officials Feb. 13, 2006.

...Wow. A Republican administration urging corporate disclosure and public brow-beating by the liberal media. No way this guy is going to get the support of a national business lobby sharply opposed to universal health coverage and the individual insurance mandate, right? Oh, wait..."

The health insurance individual mandate:

1. Originated with the very rightwing Heritage Foundation.

2. Was pushed by Romnutz in Mass.

3. Passes Congress and is signed by Obama.

4. Is at the rightwing SCOTUS

5. Is lied about and attacked by the GOPOX.

6. Shows very clearly that Romputz is a flip flopping liar.

7. Gee.

"It was bad news for presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney this week as Rick Santorum implied he intends to compete with Ron Paul at the Republican convention, then announced the formation of a conservative PAC.

...While Santorum, who surely wants to run in 2016, has to support Romney officially, his chances for the nomination in four years are much greater if Romney loses this year. "
