Romney on GM

Here's how I look at it.

Romney :

Knows what a balance sheet is
Knows what chapter 11 and 7 means
Will get to work on time and stay there all day ( and night if need be )
Will appoint staff without criminal records.
Will probably work for free and pay for his own and his families time off.
I don't think he even owns golf clubs.
Doesn't drink or smoke dope.

I could go on, but you get the point.
My dog could do a better job than Obama and is more loyal.

Franco, would you please explain how getting energy independence will free up money? Since we are a lot less dependent on others already & we export oil, LNG, coal & anything else that can be used on the world market. If the Gov. got something out of it I could see some but it seems as if the exporters of our fuels just make more profit & pay less tax so besides a lower light bill for the tax payers to pay since Congress is never there where is the savings?

Sam,

You need to get a job with one of these companies that make so much profit and pay no taxes.
I think it's called the US Government.

Or GE & some more, there was a list on it before. There may have been some taxes paid but for many it was then offset by subsidies, in any event by the wonders of lobbying there are many that should be taxed at a set amount but actually pay less. The off shore tax havens are a good starting point.

Energy independence will mean cheaper energy, just as the price of natural gas has gone down. There is also the probability of our balance of payments evening out by not purchasing oil abroad and even exporting some.. One heck of a lot of money will remain here. In turn the economy expands along with government income.

Suppose you had a gas well on your property. The local Hooterville economy would expand as you invested in new cars and dancing girls to the benefit of all.

I hate to weigh in on this one, but my question is for Steve. If you think Romney has nothing but smoke and mirrors, how on earth did you vote for a nobody, junior senator from the most corrupt state in the union? And out of all his promises, how can you still stay with him? Your not making sense as his entire campaign was smoke and mirrors. He has no business experience, no foreign policy experience, very little gov. experience as he voted present mostly, and never held a job other then community organizer. Just what are his credentials that impress you so much? We don't know for sure where he was born but he spent much time out of the country with odd people that did not like America, he got into some impressive schools somehow, we don't know how he did or what he wrote or thought about, his own books show someone that hates America and whites. We know Bush's and Romney's history right down to grade school. I just don't get it. The Libya thing alone is enough to fire him. It is worse then Carter's failed rescue because that was inept, but an attempt to RESCUE Americans instead of watching them die on video. Really hate to get into this but the O man just doesn't pass the test for me. What and who is he? And why do you trust someone you know almost nothing about, historically?

Check this out -- even MSNBC - which over the past 4 years has been more of a propaganda arm of the White House than a news source - has called out the president on this:

http://www.glennbeck.com/2012/10/24/msn ... 346_173354

Bottom line is this: Love him or hate him, we NEED Romney in there -- another 4 years of this *censored* will bury the country. I don't think America would ever recover from that. A second term means no holding back! If you think things are bad now, just imagine that one! :shock:

Franco, what makes you think I would blow money on frivolous things just because I came into some & wouldn't jobs creation do the same except take people off of assistance & put them back to paying their share? I have a friend in either Washington or Greene County that has 5 NG wells on his property 3 of which are tapped waiting for NG prices to go back up, the low price isn't going to last long.
As for the subject Romney did write a statement on allowing Detroit to go under back in 08 & once again seems to have forgotten that at that time there were no banks or even Bain types to finance a bankruptcy, we were close to a depression. Also if one would check Bain did make millions off of the deal thru one or more of the parts companies saved.

It's a good question Kev. I actually voted for McCain. I was very leary of the GOP after Bush/Cheney but I thought Mac had more experiance. I wish Romney would share some specifics.

I with you on this one Sam. We need some reform in this dept. big time. One of my fears is that Romney represents these guys since he is/was one of them. He actually got some bailout money for Bain when he was in charge.

I think that keeping a Board of Directors happy is a lot different then keeping a Country up & running. I personally think Romney is up for the task--The Presidency is a whole different scenario & I beleive he knows how to differenciate betwixt & between the two.

Steve don't fall for the propaganda. ----

Obama is the shadiest, scariest, most evil excuse for a president in the history of our nation. I don't know why the MSM is totally in bed with him, so please look a little deeper.
