Gingrich sugar daddy: Romney is “like Obama”
Seattle PI ^ | 032912 | Joel Connelly

The Las Vegas casino magnate who poured $16 million into Newt Gingrich’s “SuperPAC”, and is being courted by Mitt Romney, feels that Romney is “like Obama.”

Sheldon Adelson, president of the Las Vegas Sands, held forth at the Jewish Federation of America’s annual Tribefest, while wearing an “Obama oy vey” button, in remarks picked up by and reported in the Las Vegas Sun.

“The problem with Romney, he’s not the bold decision maker like Newt Gingrich is,” said Adelson. “Every time I talk to him, he says, ‘Well, let me thing about it’. Everything I’ve said to Mitt, ‘Let me look into it’.”

“He’s like Obama. When Obama was in the Illinois Senate, 186 times he voted ‘Present’ because he didn’t want to establish a record for himself.”

While furiously opposing Obama — he’s anti-union and feels Obama’s support for Israel is weak — Adelson has likely made more money during the Obama administration than any other American. He has expanded his casino empire into Macao (the former Portuguese colony turned Chinese gambling mecca) and Singapore.

...Sheldon Adelson No surprise Romney won't answer a direct question....he doesn't know himself from one day to another where he'll stand on any issue...... until he gets the word from the surperiors in his church/organization who he's accountable to....and they too will change on a dime for what ever political winds might seem favorable to their corporations and investments.

Too bad, he didn't want to spend more $$$ to show what a terrible fraud Romney is so Romney would be hurt more in these upcoming states. Romney will never help Newt's backer on anything.

If elected, Romney will be another Arnold Schwarznegger, rolling over exposing his throat to the unions and all special interests...

I love what Adelson said about Mitt. Hate what he said about abortion though.

PLEASE pony up more, Mr. Adelson.

"I am in this race to defeat Barack Obama. His policies are dangerous to the American people & we need a President who has solutions on day 1"

Adelson has supported many pro-lifers in Nevada and across the country. His issues are unions, Israel and fiscal policies..

The biggest difference between Rommie and Obammie is one of them will never be president.
