Mitt Romney says President Obama is confused; U.S. near ‘profound economic misery’

Mitt Romney has attacked President Obama's confusion and warned that the country is near profound economoic misery, the Washington Post reports.

What Romney is saying that if he's elected president, he would end the confusion and he would be a hands on Commander in Chief of cutting waste out of defense spending and using the savings to maintain the country's military strength. He also went after Rick Perry as a career politician. Perry is known as a hands-off leader who delegates the job of figuring out how to get things done.

What are Rick Perry’s and Michele Bachmann’s religious beliefs?

Christians and non Christians are asking whether Rick Perry and Michele Bachman advocate Dominism of America by Christians. It isn't clear whether Dominism will become a hot topic or win or lose votes for Perry or Bachmann in a general election race against President Obama. This year, I'm more concerned about economic than social and religious issues, but if Perry or Bachmann is the GOP candidate, I won't vote for one of them. I'll vote against Obama.

The religious beliefs of

It’s Mitt Romney v. Rick Perry and maybe Paul Ryan

This year it's easier to figure out who I can't support for president than who I want to become president.

As a Small Government Republican on social and economic issues, I can't vote for Barack Obama,

Perry, Bachmann, Romney Big Intrusive Government Republicans

What's interesting is that Perry, Bachmann and Romney all are Big Intrusive Government Republicans on both fiscal and social issues.

Michele Bachmann not ready for presidency, Tim Pawlenty is, says man who worked for both of them

Ron Carey, one of Michele Bachmann's former chiefs of staff and a former chair of the Minnesota GOP who also worked with Tim Pawlenty, does a pretty convincing job of explaining why Bachmann isn't presidential material and Pawlenty is. I hope we hear more details about Bachmann and Pawlenty from Carey.

An important indicator of Bachmann's management style is the number of mistakes she's made in her speeches. She hasn't spent her million in campaign contributions on a skilled staff that could do the research that should be done to make sure that she's accurately briefed and doesn't make so many factual errors in her speeches.


Bachmann is so not ready for presidency, but Pawlenty has the judgment and skills, by Ron Carey.

Tim Pawlenty ad attacks Mitt Romney’s health mandates, spending record

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's new Iowa ad attacks former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's health mandates in RomneyCare and Romney's spending record while governor.

It's good to see Pawlenty putting Romney on the spot for his support for health care insurance mandates, if not the unconstitutional mandates in ObamneyCare. Romney says he supports the right of states to "experiment" with mandates and other health insurance laws. While he hasn't directly said he supports state health insurance mandates, the fact that he brags that 2/3 or Massachusetts' very liberal residents support his RomneyCare mandates shows that he is still in favor of mandates as long as they're passed by states. To me, that means he supports state health mandates as well as ethanol mandates and mandates by the EPA that we buy much more expensive "clean" electricity from utilities. 

The questions are, how much advertising can Pawlenty and Romney's other opponents afford, and will they go after him as effectively as Pawlenty is?

Global warming skeptics should distrust Mitt Romney’s sell out on ethanol and other mandates

There is no way that any Republican or independent can trust Mitt Romney's sell outs on global warming and corn ethanol. The guy has proven that he will say whatever will win him votes in the Iowa caucuses and general election.

Yet the Denver Post's pretend conservative, Vincent Carroll, is trying to bash

Mitt Romney supports state health insurance mandates, ethanol mandates, Big Intrusive Government

Mitt Romney used a Monday meeting with Aurora, CO, Republicans to defend state health insurance mandates while he hypocritically blasted ObamaCare, which probably is unconstitutional because it mandates that all Americans buy health insurance.

What's so disturbing is that Romney supports state mandates that

Anti-abortionists will re-elect Obama and give him the power to turn Supreme Court hard left

If you want proof that social issues Republicans aren't conservatives, pay attention to how they are putting GOP presidential candidates into a corner and how they are all but re-electing President Obama.

Anti-abortionists are guaranteeing that Obama will be re-elected and will appoint several liberal, pro-choice justices to

Coloradans should ask Mitt Romney some hard questions

Mitt Romney, Rick Perry back mandates that force Americans to buy health insurance and services

We have two guys in Rick Perry and Mitt Romney who believe in mandating that Americans buy certain health care services and products that they think everyone must have for the good of the country. Romney's the leading GOP candidate for his party's presidential nomination, and Perry is thinking about taking on Romney.

Michele Bachmann: Strong campaigner, weak manager, Big Government Republican

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is getting a lot of new attention since she announced Monday that she is running for president. I think there's a 30% chance that she'll win the Republican presidential nomination.

She performed as well as
