Romney Rights the Ship in Florida

Posted on Jan 31, 2012
AP / Gerald Herbert

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney greets supporters at his Florida primary night rally in Tampa.

After Mitt Romney took a beating in South Carolina and his Iowa victory was annulled, his candidacy was beginning to look precarious. But a big win in Florida on Tuesday night put Romney back on course, and now he’s speaking as though the race is nearly over.

“A competitive primary does not divide us, it unites us and we will win,” said Romney in his victory speech.

Romney is polling ahead in Nevada, which holds its caucuses Saturday, and in Maine, which begins holding caucuses this weekend and continues until the 11th.

Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri vote next Tuesday, Feb. 7, although Missouri’s primary will not count toward the nomination.  —PZS

I am so pleased to hear that Willard Miltons “ship of fool” has righted itself ! You

Rodney—-Don’t forget “union busting.”  Why do you
think all Republicans worship Ronald Reagan and use
his name throughout any type of election?  He was
little David slaying that great Goliath, the unions.
What we need is a president who would unite the
unions to fight not only for a better life for working people in America but also fight to
establish unions in China and other countries that
are willing to sacrifice their workers at the altar
of the American corporations.  If we can find reasons to boycott Iran we can surely find reasons
to boycott countries that sacrifice their workers at
the altar of the god GREED.

I just saw on cnn the Mitt Romney isn’t concerned
about the poor. Tell us something we didn’t know. The
man who only wants to be president because he and his
rich backers don’t have enough money and power. They
want it all and they want to pass more laws in order
to keep it all. Money in the Cayman Islands and in
Swiss Banks so they won’t have to pay American taxes.
Paying a tax rate of 15% or less. Shipping jobs
overseas to promote a system on low wage slave
earners because they refuse to pay a decent wage to
an American worker. Buying up companies,firing
workers, stealing their pensions, and taking away
their health care in order for he and his Bain
buddies to make a profit. Just like everything Mitt
has done in his life the bottom line is money, not
people’s lives. He want’s to turn all of American
workers into low wage Chinese workers or WalMart
workers. That is his goal as President. He claims
success in creating jobs at Staples. Yet how many
products made in Staples are made in America.
Practically none. I guess if we could shop in China,
there would be no Staples in America. After he and
his corporate buddies purchase the Presidency of the
United States then we might as well go back to the
days of slavery.

I live in Florida.  Most people around me are
Republicans for basically one reason. They fear
that President Obama is going to raise taxes on
the wealthy.  It’s all about the money and the
greed that drives the thoughts and behaviors of
those that have it.  That’s it in a nutshell.
