Mitt Romney, Big-Government Man

Think of Romney in this way. When he goes into a small company, such as Staples, he has to see the books to understand where all the money they have made in the past went. Then if one removes bad managers, and all the unnecessary extras, restructure from the inside out by let's say cutting wages or streamline production with less more productive employees, one will save more money. I believe all our representives are grossly overpaid, and as he mentioned, if we have to borrow money to keep it, we don't need it. Think about it. How many families do without things they thought they needed, but found out when hard times really comes, they didn't need it that badly and thus they choose to do without. PBS cost 444 mil in 2012. Think about it

Did you read the article? PBS is a drop in the bucket.

It's something for you to diddle over while the massive elephants in the room consume us all without anyone being held accountable!

PBS was an example, not the entire plan.

The PBS example lacks substance, kind of like his entire plan!

That would mean we don't need like 1/2 the military budget, for starters. Where do you think all that borrowed money goes to? Big Bird? C'mon.

Romney is not telling you the truth because he wants to win. Maybe he does realize the size of the problem, but I don't believe he will do anything about it.

Then you haven't analyzed Romney's M.O.
Now go rethink your position with some historical facts.

Re: Dbeaux2,

MO as an investor, as a governor or as a Olympic game organizer? Because he is a sharp investor and a good organizer. That does not mean he's not an East Coast liberal. The only small comfort I may have is that he's no Chicago liberal (i.e. gangster) but that's just a SMALL comfort.

Never said he wasn't a liberal. But that is past tense. He is flipping toward the constitution. Sometimes small comforts are all we have.

President Obama tanked in the last debate. Good.

Now maybe people will listen when Mitt Romney says things like, "The genius of America is the free enterprise system, and freedom, and the fact that people can go out there and start a business. ... The private market and individual responsibility always work best."

They do.

But then Romney responded to Obama by essentially saying: I want big government, too!

We who hope for smaller government as a way to expand liberty and create prosperity are disturbed by what we heard last week. The GOP candidate painted himself as a big...
