    You aren't lying. Romney ended up substantially more wealthy than his father, and the bulk of Romney's wealth came from Bain, which had nothing to do with his father. People can't stand the truth.

    He ran and lost last time, it's not a good idea to try to run a losing candidate twice, especially for the presidency.

    Yes.

    Now, understand, I would vote third-party in a Hillary/Romney race because I don't want either one of them anywhere near the Oval Office.

    But if there were no third-party candidates at all, and I had to vote for one of the two, I'd vote for Hillary.

    I can't believe anyone would suggest a Romney, Clinton or Bush.

    It is a billion dollar investment in the running of a candidate for president. I don't think investors would want to invest in a loser or one with a tainted name.
    But then again we aren't dealing with very intelligent peiople as the past has proven to be.

    No, the stereotype for Democrats are people who don't understand history, economics or anti American propaganda.

    If the electorate are goofy enough to fall for this low form of leftist propaganda then they deserve what they get. Hard as it is to accept because they are a good people, America deserved Barrack Obama.

    You believe Presidents should be elected based on their 'charisma' huh? America has become a celebrity culture, and this is the consequence.

    Romney's were prepared remarks and he went on and on about the 47%--not an accidental remark--and they cost him the election.

    Clinton's remark was clearly in frustration with unprofessional badgering by the GOP House--something that is far from over--
    certainly taken out of context--definitely has nothing to do with her campaigning but everything to do with the GOP's campaign to destroy her .
    Being that Romney was correct makes no difference? That's what makes it difficult for politicians to be honest. Everyone claims they want honest politicians but then when they are they attack them for being so.

    Which "extreme agenda" are you referring to? Have you found BHO to be extreme at all?
