The Reagan in Romney

Also it should be noted, because it's important, that Romney balanced the budget in Massachusetts, a state which was in love with balooning deficits. Also, he brought an over-budget Olympics, at the time he took over the helm, in under budget.

LOL ... yea, it was a miracle how he rescued the the Olympics! The Salt Lake games got more taxpayer dollars than all of the previous U.S.-hosted Olympics combined: a whopping $1.3 billion. For comparison, the 1984 games in L.A. received $75 million and the 1996 games in Atlanta received $609 million. It's clear that the real hero of the 2002 games was the American taxpayer ... to which Romney then claims a $100 million profit for them?

Twist the facts, Jimsd55 - does increased security four months after 9/11 mean anything to you? Moron.

What's a billion dollars when it comes to security for sporting events? That was probably a bargain compared to the amounts our police state and MIC pour down the drain.

Jimsd 55: Are you the same fool that said Ronald Reagan started the National Debt? Sure you are.

That $100million was made, at Mitt's direction, into a fund that was used (as it increased in value because it was wisely invested) to maintain the training venues that had been built for those Olympics, but which have been made available for use ever since by Olympians from all over this country. The facilities were state-of-the-art at the time, and have been kept up for 30 years. This info from one of the gold medalists of the Romney Olympics.
While some of my conservative colleagues are criticizing the Romney campaign for one thing or another, I want to make a distinct point that is largely being overlooked: Mitt Romney is the most fiscally conservative Republican standard-bearer since Ronald Reagan.
Looking back through his speeches, interviews, and programmatic proposals, I see an emphasis on economic freedom, free enterprise, low tax rates, deep federal spending cuts, and free trade, and a free-market approach to tough social problems, such as health care, education, and poverty. Meaning no disrespect to George W. Bush, John McCain, Robert Dole, and George H. W. Bush,...
