I guess I'm dense, because I just don't get the need to do that there. If it's some sort of ironic play on "are we ready for a black President" from four years ago..well, I just don't think it's appropriate in the setting. And if you're Robert De Niro, how about just be more careful and considerate when you're in the room with the First Lady. Irony and your "clever" social/political commentary can happen another time.

It's just not that important anyway; It's a nice story, but it's not a reason to be president.

Mittens in 2005:

Quote:
“[clean energy] is an industry that is going to be explosive in its growth in the next decade.”
-

Mittens in 2006:

Quote:
When lieutenant governor Kerry Healey, a fellow Republican, called for suspending the state’s 23.5 cent gas tax during a price spike in May 2006, Romney rejected the idea, saying it would only further drive up gasoline consumption. “I don’t think that now is the time, and I’m not sure there will be the right time, for us to encourage the use of more gasoline,” Romney said, according to the Quincy Patriot Ledger’s report at the time. “I’m very much in favor of people recognizing that these high gasoline prices are probably here to stay.”
-

Mittens in 2012:

Quote:
“No question in my mind that these—I call them the gas-hike trio—that those three are on a mission to drive up the price of gasoline and all energy so that they can finally get their solar and their wind to be more price-competitive. That’s what they want to do,” Romney said on Monday.

And how is it unique to Romney? It's not as though the President doesn't have a good love story and 20 year marriage of his own. It's not as though Santorum and Paul haven't been married forever. Newt is the only candidate who doesn't have the love story.

It's just not that important anyway; It's a nice story, but it's not a reason to be president



Well I think Obama's marriage helps his electability. His whole family image plays well in the public mind. It also seems pretty genuine. I do think however, behind closed doors that Michelle could be a potential spouse beater though, not saying she does, but I bet you a soda that the genetic propensity is there.

On Newt's umm current marriage-body language of spouses says alot. Have you watched Calista up close? Although beautiful her smiles seem forced, a bit robotic, almost Stepford-wifeish.

With Rick's, yes the Santorum's marriage may be fine but he is so tightly wound, I feel bad the guy can't relax, it must be taxing on his wife, they seem under alot of stress. His daughters are always almost on the verge of meltdowns or tears every time he loses, watch the oldest daughter especially.

Ron Paul and Mrs Paul may have a happy marriage that is genuine, but he's not a front runner, so there's really no reason to examine their relationship in depth.

With Mitt and Ann, watching them, their love oozes freely and bespeaks a blissful relationship.

There you have it.

Clear now?

Thanks.

Why are we examining any of their personal relationships?

Shouldn't we be worried about how they're going to run our country?

Santorum is promoting a company that took jobs in Ohio and moved them to China.

Etch a Sketch was manufactured in Bryan, Ohio until the company moved the manufacturing plant to Shenzhen, China in 2001.

You don't think it a plus in having a strong personal relationship with your spouse as a benefit in running a country, business or enterprise?

What's most important to me about Romney is his insane tax plan that nobody in the media is really talking about. And I say this as, what I consider to be, a fiscal conservative.

Because it adds to the deficit...and, you know...increases taxes on the poor. Should go over really well in the Fall.

And then we wonder who votes for the troglodytes in Congress.

Sorry, but you've got to be f'ing kidding me

Genetic propensity? So you know all about her genetic background, or is it some sort of conjecture on your part?

Read it in an e-mail?

Would a transvaginal ultrasound reveal if Michelle is a potential spouse beater?

No? There's zero correlation, and certainly no causation in the event that there is a correlation.

Don't get me wrong, dishonesty in a relationship speaks volumes.
