THIS IS A RUSH FDCH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
M. ROMNEY: I don't know why he's so angry. Look, this is a campaign about the things we believe in. I believe the country's being led in a very unfortunate and destructive way by a president that doesn't really understand our economy or understand America. I can get America working again. That's why I'm running.
As for a one-on-one with Newt Gingrich, if he and I end up being the two finalists, why, we'll have that opportunity. But right now, we - I don't know, have debated maybe 10 times. We'll do more debates in January. But until he and I really are the other two finalists, while there are other people who still deserve to be on the stage.
Ron Paul, I think, is leading here in Iowa as of today. So the idea that this is all about Newt's or all about Mitt, is not right. We have a field of candidates now. I'll debate all of them. And when it comes down to the finalists, I hope I'm one of them. And if I am, I'll debate whoever that finalist is....

” I can get America working again. “
Thank God Mitt’s stepping up to the plate to save all our butts.
I would say Newt’s opinion regarding Ron Paul has a lot to do with those racist news letters that were sent out with Paul’s name on them and Ron Paul’s stand on foreign policy among other things. I have yet to hear Mitts take on the news letters. Sounds like Mitt is doing a lot of pandering. GO NEWT!
Cassus defined. Smart enough to get into power, stupid enough to have no clue what he’s doing. We’ve just seen this movie. Neither are the controllers.
No you can't, you won't even be able to get past 0bama in the elections.
If you get past the primaries, we will see a second term.
I wonder how badly the GOP is going to lose next year.
We could see one of the worse presidents in the history of this country win by double digits.
I still believe our only hope is a strong conservative third party challenge.
If not, if your conservative the next four years maybe your last as a free person.
“Romney: I would vote for Ron Paul”
Isn’t he the sweetest thing! Don’tcha just love his niceness?
Mitt is a mayonnaise sandwich on white bread-—yuk.
A globalist cannot save our ‘butts’. He can save the butts of the transnational corporations that ruined our economy though. It won’t help the American citizen in any event. It will help the EU and the Arab League.
So that’s what you are gunning for in the next election.
Ron Paul (pot) has been in Congress for 30 years and has not had one of his bills passed into law. Once the electorate realizes this, how are they going to be convinced that Ron Paul (pot) will fix something as huge as our economic problems?
Ron Paul (pot) has spent years in Congress becoming the King of Pork. How is he going to convince America that he knows how to fix government’s spending problem?
Oh, I know! By legalizing marijuana, we can grow our way out of our economic problems and,with the tax money, fix the deficit. That’s the ticket! Far out man!
By golly, I think you hit on RuPaul’s secret deficit plan!
Mitt gets away with this because the MSM will not corner him on it. I wonder why they have not ask Mitt what he thought about Pauls racism in his news letters?
No doubt about it, Romney is the establishment one they want.
Mitt’s a pandering idiot. Two words, Mitt...IRAN - NUKES
Or, how about these two words, Mitt...KABOOM - ATLANTA
or KABOOM - ORLANDO
or KABOOM - NY
1) Our country is in the toilet because we have a socialist in the White House.
2) Romney's campaign creates lies about Gingrich and puts them in campaign ads.
The most backstabbing, cowardly, ineligible RINO:
I bet you $10,000 that I'll do, or say, anything,
AND have my surrogates hurt anyone,
to get what I want.
Bad Gov. Romney, in another of his hit and runs
managed to even raise taxes on New Hampshire residents
while Gov. of Massachusetts.
Believe it or not.
"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

Sorry....I thought my sarcasm would be obvious.
Increasingly, I’m getting the feeling I don’t like Mitt Romney on a personal level. Regardless of his politics. And I usually don’t even bother “liking” or “not liking” a politician. But he occasionally makes little remarks that I find disingenuous or flip, and I think... I know this personality type. Frankly, he’s kind of a smart-a**.
