Why don't we put Facts to make Mitt Romney unelectable or not best president for 'the people'?
The former Massachusetts governor (2003-2007). 4 years only term and was defeated in the polls, and says of Ron Paul being unelectable?......
The Boston Globe noted today that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has a habit of lambasting the “failures” of government-backed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac....
LEADs to chase or to confirm
On his financial disclosure statement filed August 2011, Romney reported owning between $250,001 and $500,000 in a mutual fund that invests in debt notes of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, among other government entities. Over the previous year, he had reported earning between $15,001 and $50,000 in interest from those investments.
Romney made the investment in a mutual fund called the Government Obligation Fund, managed by Federated Investors Inc. The fund invests in a wide variety of sources, including government agencies and US Treasury notes. But out of a $28.5 billion portfolio, nearly half of the fund was in Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Federal Home Loan Bank notes, according to an SEC filing made in April 2011.
In addition to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the fund also has investments in investment agreements with several banks that received federal bailout money, including Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, and JP Morgan.
I Believe Bernanke Is Doing A Good Job! Mitt Romney
Interview with Romney pushes Mark Larsen to support Ron PaulMark Larsen of 1040 AM WWBA interviewed Mitt Romney on the morning of 1/29/2008. The sneers and chuckles from slippery Romney pushed him over the edge and drove him to support the only real candidate -- Ron Paul.
Call your local radio stations and mention Ron Paul! More info here: http://ronpaulchat.net/radiobomb.html
Romney is a strong defender of the Troubled Asset Relief Program and the financial bailouts. He has even talked about lowering capital gains — though for only the smaller investor.
Mitt Romney who is a private equity investor company owner who profited from the bailouts and embedded part of the extreme crony capitalism, is a firm supporter of the $700 billion bank bailout then and he still supports it today (base on his interviews, government record and actions).
In The Hindsight:
The bailout turned up to be a scam rip off.....
Starting with Tarp scam:
Although those national and smaller banks was bankrupt by the multinational Banks through their own illegal activities, the government through politicians and commercial lobbyist (despite the conflict of interest) were allowed to take over national and smaller banks to consolidate the national and domestic banking system under the multinational Banks monopoly and manipulations of controls (which have now become under more embedded to their never to fail banking that has failed and then bankrupt itself).
The very reason it was not allowed before is because, base on preventing a monopoly control structure and also the handing over of the national controls of American and domestic banking system to foreign globalisation that will dictate the national economy. But TARP did the opposite, thus the bankrupting of Americans gave the process of handing to foreign interest (including American front but trans-global ownership corporations) their economy and America’s wealth and resources.
Another thing that was allowed but is definitely a criminal in nature is, failed bankers with extreme bad debt were allowed by politicians and then they forced the smaller and national banks to take a low face value price for their banks, with the condition they foreclosed, so then the new multinational Banks can inherently own every assets, loans earnings/equity/property of all its customers and any other businesses those small and national banks have as their assets; thus instil their own rules and behest (not by public government police). The politicians and government administration forced ‘the people’ to pay for all the mistake of 'bankrupting themselves' (bankers) despite evidence of obvious embezzling, larceny and other criminal activities assisted by the government administrators and politicians.
In short, the politicians legalise the process of stealing the money from the normal people savings, commercial and investment to become theirs while giving themselves multibillion bonuses more pay on top, courtesy of the people.
Also another thing very wrong with criminal in nature..... multinational Banks that had just then claim bankrupt were allowed (as ‘the people’ were forced to pay for their bankruptcy and to make them bigger than they were before without a cent paying back) for a tax payers fund of the multinational too big to fail Banks buying spree of the other banks that they bankrupted, while they created toxic debts they made themselves whereby again the tax payers are forced to pay for their embezzlement and scamming (another need bailing out because they bankrupt themselves on top of their bankrupt).
In the Foresight:
The Tarp money was much better to have been given straight to the people to pay for their debt (since its their taxes) and it will end up bailing out the banks themselves and lose the debt loans they have in the process. Why let this tax payer’s money illegally become theirs while in the process made destitute of people, created double recession to bankrupt businesses. Which is what Ron Paul was saying in parallel which is let the banks fail and give the bail out to the people, to balance the economy and prevent burn out and avoid depression.
Funny thing is how the hell can America have less than 8% unemployment when it’s 16 trillion in debt, with every 1 in five unemployed looking for work out of approximately 200 million working employable population with double dip recession?

Romneycare Is Bankrupting Massachusetts – A Lesson On The Dangers Of Obamacare

Fact Check: Mitt Romney gets it wrong on auto bailout during GOP debate at Oakland University
The Associated Press:Mitt Romney's claim that President Barack Obama "gave GM" to the United Auto Workers stood as one of the overstatements of the night Wednesday when Republican presidential candidates grappled with the economy in their latest debate. Several drifted from reality too in portraying regulations as a killer of jobs, if not the country itself.
A look at some of the claims in the debate and how they compare with the facts:
ROMNEY: President Barack Obama "gave GM to UAW, he gave Chrysler to Fiat."
THE FACTS: That's not what happened in the bailout.
A trust owned by the United Auto Workers received a 17.5 percent ownership stake in GM to help that trust pay for its retirees' health care. That stake has declined since then, after the company went public in November 2010. The trust now owns about 10 percent of General Motors. That's much smaller than the government's stake of about 30 percent, and it doesn't support the notion that the government "gave" the company to the union.
Moreover, the union did not get free rein in return for its share. It was barred from going on strike over wage issues during recent contract talks with GM and Chrysler, as a condition of the bailouts

The campaign should put out a crony capitalist ad on Romney for NH. Talk about soliciting donations from the CEO of Deutsche Bank and othe FOREIGN Banks. Play the fear card, scare the populace into thinking hes being bribed by foreigners, which isn't exactly untrue.

Communism never disappeared it only changed its name to Social Democrat
Emotion and Logic mix like oil and water
So just how many senior voters are there in NH? We have the percentages but what are the actual numbers?
I think it's wise to try to get the younger voters to come out to the primary by running a Serial Hypocrisy-type ad against Mitt, emphasizing that he is a walking monetary disaster. If they can somehow also emphasize the urgency of the situation (a Romney/Obama administration) and what it would mean to both the younger and older generations economically, we could at least motivate the younger crowd to get to the polls. The wiser older ones might even change their votes if they're not too far gone.

The goal should be about becoming the anti-Romney. Winning Iowa could go a long way in doing that, especially if Gingrich does as poorly as it looks like he might.
Lets not forget that Romney has gone basically untouched this election so if we can close the gap to single digits that will be huge, plus everyone (the MSM political analysts) is expecting Romney to win big in NH.
