    Ross Perot Endorses Romney: U.S. on Unsustainable Course.....



    Tuesday morning, in an op-ed in the Des Moines Register, businessman and former presidential candidate Ross Perot declared his unequivocal support for Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

    "President Obama promised a great deal. He has had his chance," Perot wrote. "The results are visible for all to see. It is time for a new beginning. It is time for Mitt Romney."

    The endorsement may come as a surprise to some. In recent weeks, Perot went on record as disapproving of both candidates' negligence of an impending "fiscal cliff" and the country's massive debt. In an interview with USA Today, he said, "Nobody that's running really talks about it, about what we have to do and why we have to do it. They would prefer not to have it discussed.".....snip~

    Perot has said enough is enough. Now endorses Romney! Course I heard Perot was thinking all along the lines of what Forbes was thinking as well. Which is the Business World and going with Free Markets and standing with the Small business Owners that Drive the Economy.

    Looks like Forbes is going to endorse Romney too. Or is Voting for him. This morning on the radio people were asking if Perot was going to make some type of Endorsement. Didn't take long with what the CBO and those independant sources that are saying Obama's economic meddling and where it will take this Country.

    One can see why with Bernanke getting ready to print some more money.

    Although the Dems won't admit that in doing so they will drive up the cost of gas and most other products. This comes at a good time for Romney and Right before tonights Debate!

    Interesting. Would have bet money that he'd have endorsed Gary Johnson.

    Being a former 3rd Party candidate himself you'd think he would support someone like Gary Johnson. He DOES take our dire fiscal situation seriously.

    Perot ran to retaliation against H Bush - and succeeded.

    Gary Johnson is the the angry white male malcontent Ron Paulites protest vote gatherer - meaning nobody gathering up pointless votes from nobodies within political framework in my political pragmatic opinion.

    The other distinction is that Perot and Romney share the same perspectives on business, both being extremely wealthy and from private enterprise. Who is Gary Johnson but an ex-political something with a malcontented bitter loser's mouth?

    Perot would recognize his endorsing Johnson would equate to endorsing Obama. Perot wanted to be the spoiler causing the defeat of Bush believing he could do so and did. He wants Romney to win, the reason he endorsed Romney.
