Comments on: Romney rakes in the dough, gives generously http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/07/16/romney-rakes-in-the-dough-gives-generously/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Cornelia Butler http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/07/16/romney-rakes-in-the-dough-gives-generously/comment-page-1/#comment-399244 Mon, 21 Sep 2009 10:54:56 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=18440#comment-399244 I think Mitt Romney for President and Mike Huckabee as v/pres would make an awesome team for 2012. I would certainly be proud to support their candidacy should we be lucky enough for them to run.

The difference between fact and truth: Fact can be proven by statistics and polls …. truth cannot. FACT is not Truth.

I thank my psychology teacher at college for teaching us the difference. He said you can prove that women get pregnant just by holding hands or other such foolish things. It’s how you ask the question.

The media convinces us of facts. Unfortunately for them, conservatives are looking for the truth.

I think Mitt and Mike Huckabee would be an honest, strong and brilliant team – no matter the order of Pres/VP. So much do I believe this, I contributed to both this year; even though unemployment has hit us hard. Mitt & Mike for and honest, strong America!

Here in Massachusetts there isn’t anyone that can have a negitive thing to say about Mitt on a personal level. He was a Republican governor in a very Liberal State controlled almost entirely by a strong Democrat machine. He was elected just by the strong appeal of his personal character and his ability to right the ship of a state with tough fiscal problems. He left office with a hefty surplus which sadly has gone the other way since he left the Governorship.

As I pointed out earlier, the vast majority of Americans don’t agree with either of you. Neither do the vast majority of scientists or economists.

Gallup-Is Global Warming Occurring?
When asked their views on when the effects of global warming will begin to happen, 61% of Americans currently say “they have already begun to happen.” This is an increase from 1997, when only 48% gave this response. However, while over three-fourths of Democrats (76%) believe global warming is already happening, only 41% of Republicans share that view.

Harris-
Most people (85%) say they have seen, heard or read about the theory of global warming.
The great majority (74%) of those who have seen, heard or read about global warming say that they believe in the theory that increased carbon dioxide and other gases will lead to global warming and an increase in average temperatures.
Of those who have seen, heard or read about global warming, approximately half (52%) say they have seen, heard or read about recent international agreements in Kyoto and Bonn to limit emissions of greenhouse gases. However, this represents a decline from previous year, when 58% said they had heard of these agreements.
Of the people who have heard about the Kyoto or Bonn agreements, a large majority (73% to 20%) approves of them.
Of those who have heard of the Kyoto and Bonn agreements, a 54% to 30% majority now thinks that the U.S. government was wrong not to accept these agreements. This is an increase in public criticism of the government. Last year showed a much narrower (46% to 42%) plurality thinking the government position was wrong.
Feelings about the U.S. government position on global warming vary substantially by party, with 70% of Democrats and 56% of Independents thinking that the U.S. government position is wrong, while a 49% to 37% plurality of Republicans thinks the U.S. government position is right. However, it should be noted that half of the Republicans who answered this question did not think that the government position was right.

CBS/NYT- A clear majority of Americans — 72 percent — support a government-sponsored health care plan to compete with private insurers, a new CBS News/New York Times poll finds. Most also think the government would do a better job than private industry at keeping down costs and believe that the government should guarantee health care for all Americans.

NBC/Wall Street Journal- Poll numbers show that the American public overwhelmingly favors a choice between getting insurance coverage either through the private market or a government run option. Indeed, 76 percent of respondents said it was either “extremely” or “quite” important to “give people a choice of both a public plan administered by the federal government and a private plan for their health insurance.”

That’s right it is “MITT ROMNEY”. Come on people, put away your people bias, can’t you see this country is going down with Obama? If you truly love this country, help save it, and give Mr. Romney a chance.

The wrong man is leading our Country today. Hopefully Americans will nominate and elect Governor Romney in 2012. He has over 25 years as one of the most successful business men in America plus having served as the governor of Massachusetts. He has raised five terrific sons and his been a model husband. I can’t think of a thing that would keep me from voting for this American Patriot.

We need a guy with his economic experience to lead us out of this recession.
