So it looks like Mitt Rommney is going to run
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070101/ap_on_el_pr/romney2008

The Democrats who are running for President better confront even issues that that are afraid to. I am talking about issues such as choice, stem cell research, and the government staying out of people's private lives

14. Sorry
I had a bad brain fart, for some reason I was thinking of Zell Miller. The joke makes sense now?

2. Buying Clearchannel was a step in having himself a little PR
It works for Bloomberg!

3. I don't understand how your conclusion applies to mitten's run.
Romney is anit-choice, a homophobe, and has no problem being all over people's affairs. So I agree with your conclusion, but I don't see how it applies to mittens soon to be failed run for presidunce.

15. Yes, I no what he is. My point is I want the Democrats to state VERY clearly
what THEY stand for. No abiguity. One more Supreme Court Justice, and we are screwed. This IS A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE, THAT CANNOT BE IGNORED

6. Mass. Resident Sez: Willard "Mitt" Romney is Dangerous
Edited on Mon Jan-01-07 01:48 PM by MannyGoldstein
He's evil and 20 times smarter than Bush.

Be very, very afraid.

7. Great!
No, really, this is GREAT. Having Mittens in the race increases the likelihood of a bitter and divisive Repugnican primary season. Giuliani and McCain will have to spend even more money fending off his attacks, and the entire field will get dragged down into the mud.

Of course Mittens has no chance, but having him in the primaries will make it easier for us in the general election.

9. i think it's great too
he holds the positions that the fundy wing wants in a candidate, but his mormon faith makes him distasteful to them. It will be fun watching them divide their loyalties between his positions and McCain's attempts to ingratiate himself with their wing. It should get interesting :)

10. Distasteful?
Fundies should be reminded at every opportunity that every relative ever entered into the LDS genealogy database, becomes a Mormon posthumously.

12. Blunt Jr ( a lot in common with Bush Jr) took a special trip out of state
to hobnob with and cozy up to Romney last year. Like Dubya, he's got higher ambitions too and he's done some pretty bad things in Missouri as Governor.

16. Everybody duck. He is Bush 2 only there is no
excuse for it. He is more intelligent. The gov. threw millions into the Olympics so we would not be embarrassed. Romney is no heavy weight as a matter of fact he is just a fake.
