Mitt Romney leads Obama in first Gallup national tracking poll
The Hill ^ | April 16, 2012 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 04/16/2012 12:03:42 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Mitt Romney leads President Obama in the first Gallup national daily tracking poll.

Romney took 47 percent support from surveyed registered voters, while Obama took 45 in a poll conducted between April 11 and April 15. Romney's edge though is within the poll's three point margin of error.

Independents tipped the scale in favor of Romney, going for the former Massachusetts governor 45 percent to 39.

Well it’s good for Obama to get the boot. As far as Romney goes I won’t have to vote for him. I suspect my state will give him the delegates without needing my help. I will vote for the congresscritters and local stuff.

First its romney so that is bad...It appears he doesn’t need my vote to win..so that is good.

You are a brilliant FREEPER. That is true. Romney is winning so I can seriously write in Sarah Palin without guilt. This is great news afterall. I am from Pennsylvania which is a toss up but has gone Dem since 1988 so it is not a factor for me to feel guilty there either. I will vote Newt on the 24th though...

I'm not voting for that liberal azz-clown Romney, or cheering an Obama victory, either. I will be celebrating the RRL (Romney's record loss). The GOP will be forced to rebuild, or a third party will be born. The next 4 will focus on building a conservative House and Senate.

This is good and bad. First its romney so that is bad...It appears he doesn’t need my vote to win..so that is good. Its off my conscience.

Same quandary for me. Come election time I want Romney to either be so far ahead or so far behind in my state that he won't need my vote and I can skip that position with a good conscience. Alas, it being New Mexico, presidential races have been close the past few years (except with Obama winning last time) so I may have to decide NOT to leave that lever un-pulled.

A new Fox News poll shows similar numbers: Romney 46 percent; Obama 44 percent.

And it is probably worth remembering that most of the undecided vote typically breaks against the incumbent...

I’m not really trying to offend anyone, but this is what it looks like here. You don’t always get what you want. We should at least make the most of a situation that could be better but could surely be worse.

Careful how you speak around these parts. Romney is the Antichrist while Obama is just a marxist.

I know what Romney’s organization did.

Romney’s Bain Capital Made Billions While Bankrupting Nearly One-Quarter Of The Companies It Invested In
By Pat Garofalo on Jan 9, 2012 at 9:25 am

2012 GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney, who has a large lead in the polls heading into the New Hampshire primary tomorrow, has been taking heat from both Democrats and his Republican challengers for his time at Bain Capital, the private equity firm that he headed. Bain’s modus operandi was to invest in companies, leverage them up with debt, and then sell them off for scrap, allowing Bain’s investors to walk away with huge profits while the companies in which Bain invested wound up in bankruptcy, laying off workers and reneging on benefits.

Last week, Reuters profiled one company, Worldwide Grinding Systems, that went belly up after Bain invested in it. The company not only lost 750 jobs, but the federal government had to come in to bail out its pension fund, while Bain walked away with millions in profits.

And according to an analysis by the Wall Street Journal, this was far from an isolated incident. In fact, 22 percent of the companies in which Bain invested wound up either in bankruptcy or shutting their doors entirely, while Bain itself has made billions of dollars for its investors:
The Wall Street Journal, aiming for a comprehensive assessment, examined 77 businesses Bain invested in while Mr. Romney led the firm from its 1984 start until early 1999, to see how they fared during Bain’s involvement and shortly afterward.

Among the findings: 22% either filed for bankruptcy reorganization or closed their doors by the end of the eighth year after Bain first invested, sometimes with substantial job losses. An additional 8% ran into so much trouble that all of the money Bain invested was lost. [...]

The Journal analysis shows that in total, Bain produced about $2.5 billion in gains for its investors in the 77 deals, on about $1.1 billion invested. Overall, Bain recorded roughly 50% to 80% annual gains in this period, which experts said was among the best track records for buyout firms in that era.

Adding insult to injury, Bain would hide its profits in tax havens, not even paying the rate it was supposed to on the profits it made laying off workers.

Federal Aid

The US Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp, which insures company retirement plans, determined in 2002 that GS (Steel) had underfunded its pension by $US44 million. The federal agency, funded by corporate levies, stepped in to cover the basic pension payments, but not the supplement the union had negotiated as a hedge against the plant’s closure.
For Joe Soptic, who worked at the plant for 28 years, that meant a loss of $US283 per month, about 22 per cent of his pension. Others lost up to $US400 per month, according to documents supplied by the union.

Comparatively, the GS bailout was one of the pension guarantor’s smaller hits. The federal fund swung from a $US7.7 billion surplus to a $US3.6 billion deficit that year as it struggled to cover bankruptcies in the steel and transportation industries. The failure of LTV Steel, for example, cost the agency $US1.9 billion.

The agency’s woes prompted Congress in 2006 to require companies to contribute more toward their pensions. Press accounts said this change accelerated the shift away from pension plans toward 401(k)s and other defined-contribution retirement plans that offer less security for workers.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The description “Robber Baron” comes to mind. To make matters worse, the man is a fascist who believes in national socialism.

Do you honestly think this is better than the following record of Newt Gingrich?

Newt Gingrich allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority (together the Reagan Revolution) which directly led the downfall of the Soviet Union, the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.

Under a Republican president, they [the Republican Congress, including Rick Santorum] added over $3 trillion to the federal deficit, shunned conservative policy in favor of Beltway influence-peddling, and so damaged the GOP brand that we lost the majority Gingrich had worked years to forge.

How much should I really care that Newt’s fabulous colleagues think his reemergence would be a disaster for Republicans? Lest these characters forget - 2010 was not a merit promotion. They, the Republicans, were the only alternative in town.

“Only improvement over Obama would possibly be Romneys US Supreme Court justice appointments.”

You’re joking.

Romney as Massachusett’s Governor did not pick conservatives for that state’s Supreme Court. And he won’t choose wisely as President, either.

Romney is a self-professed progressive, a national socialist like Hillary Clinton et al.

Obama's Friday the 13th power grab:

Power Grab for Natural Gas – New Executive Order

And who will chair this powerful new group?

The former senior VP of La Raza, Cecilia Muñoz. Her particular area of expertise (of course) is immigration policy, which she covered at NCLR for twenty years. Expertise in natural resource development and use?? None, nada. But this is just another attempt by the libs and enviros to shut down fossil fuel use. UP WITH ALGAE!!!

What part of the following statement by Jim Robinson don't you understand?

A reminder for those who are not receiving the message:

Romney is a pathological compulsive liar. Lie after lie papered over with more lies. Doesn’t even flinch when caught in bald faced lies, simply tells another big whopper to cover up or dodge the issue. Funny thing, the man actually seems to believe his own latest lies and simply ignores the glaring record of his past actions/lies. And you have true blue establishment elite RINO Republicans like Karl Rove enabling and backing up his lies. Their motivation is simply to hang on to power (and riches) any way they can.

I’ve stated many times since Romney started running for the presidency way back when that I’d never vote for him and I will not. He cannot lie his way out of his decades long record of support for abortion, Roe v Wade, planned parenthood, gay rights, gun control, global warming, amnesty, liberal judges, big government, compulsory or socialized health care (RomneyCommieCare), mandates, Keynesian economics, support and approval of TARP, bailouts, stimulus packages, i.e, every damn liberal progressive issue that comes down the pike.

C’mon. These are the reasons the tea party sprang up and the reasons he and Rove loathe the tea party and our tea party conservative candidates. Romney famously expressed his loathing for Reagan-Bush conservatism several years ago when he was trying to run to the left of Ted Kennedy and now he’s cloaking himself in Reagan conservatism, knowing full well that it’s a lie, but he knows it’s the only way he can possibly win, er buy the Republican nomination.

Screw Romney!! I absolutely will not support or vote for a proven compulsive liar with a known record of abortion and big government socialism, liberal appointments, etc. He still lies about RomneyCommieCare today. Calls it a “conservative solution.” Get real!!

Listen to what Ronald Reagan had to say about the elites pushing socialism on America via compulsory health insurance:

Ronald Reagan speaks out against RomneyCommieCare

There will be no campaign for this Massachusetts liberal liar on FR!!

Fear is a great motivator along with high gasoline prices, rising food prices and falling wages.

The economy is sinking Obama right now along with RINO media inspiring fear of his leftist beliefs.

Romney could win this thing if he wins the nomination.

In fact, Newt could win if he wins the nomination.

But a bottom line scenario is the debt bubble bursting at some point with Washington politicians of both parties imposing higher taxes on us along with entitlement program cuts.

Another good point. It’s the purple states where it will be decided. Virginia and North Carolina are turning purple. On the bright side is that a backlash against Obama’s economic record is building in Pennsylvania and Michigan. The geographic red/blue map we’re used to may have a different pattern this time.
