What one question would you ask Mitt Romney if given the chance (vanity)?
Tribune-Review (Pittsburgh Area) ^ | 16 July 2012 | Joe Napsha

Posted on 07/16/2012 7:18:24 AM PDT by Vigilanteman

So here's the deal. My wife and I have been long time volunteers at the local GOP hq. and were offered a couple of tickets for a Romney campaign appearance in our county tomorrow. The details are at the link.

I was not going to miss work, but my wife wanted to go in the worst way and then I found out this is going to be a fairly small gathering, 200 people or so.

While not guaranteed, of course, there is at least a decent chance we will have the opportunity to ask him at least one question or give out a line of advice. If it was you, what would you say?

Please be respectful, skip the cut and paste garbage and understand that while I'm not wild about Mitt, a lot of TEA Party people like me are going to be here and maybe have the opportunity to at least plant a seed in or pull a weed from his RINO mind. This is a rare chance for the rank and file to interact with his campaign as a limited number of free tickets were distributed to long-time volunteers.

“Given your demonstrated record of liberal governance and belief, why should the conservative base believe ANYTHING you have to say?”

Perfectly legitimate and reasonable question.

Why are you running when its so clear that the voters can’t stand the sight of you? What’s more important, your entitlement to be president or the good of the nation?

Mr Romney: Do you believe the United States Constitution is a living-breathing document whose meaning changes with the whims of culturally popular sentiments? Or is it a blueprint for our Creator guaranteed freedoms? Am I an individual with individual rights? or a stepping stone for government power?

Depends on who’s asking, cripplecreek. Unfortunately.

Let’s try another:

“Given your support for TARP, AGW theory and the fact that you wrote and championed what evolved into the pustule on the American financial system and people known as Obamacare, what factual statement can you make that will show you as different from the President in any meaningful way in terms of a desire to slow the growth of government?”

Romney is running for President based on his success as a businessman who can turn our economic problems around.

So a sensible question for a candidate who governed as a big government guy when Governor of MA is this:

“Everyone agrees that spending less to pay down the debt is required; so what parts of the Federal government would you abolish?”

In 2010, McDonald v. Chicago resulted in the 2nd Amendment being incorporated under the 14th as a Fundamental Civil Right. Given this, will you as President work to bring Federal Law into compliance with this standard as it has with other Incorporated Civil Rights by repealing laws such as the NFA, Hughes Amendment, importation bans, and other restrictive measures and will you authorize, through an Executive Order an immediate relief of the Hughes Amendment by mandating consecutive amnesties of the NFA until the law is repealed?

I would advise him to get off and stay off defense! When Obama hits him - Romney needs to hit him harder! He says Romney is secretive, say “I have been up front and have been vindicated by all who have researched these issues, but lets look at secrecy from YOUR administration - then hit him on Fast and Furious (explaining to the average Joe the details) and back room deals, etc., etc., etc...”

Don’t let up on the economy, but also but also to hit Obama HARD on lying - and not just the lies about Romney, but ALL the lies about no new taxes on the middle class, transparency, the five days the public was supposed to get in order to read bills before they were signed - ALL his campaign promises were lies, actually. Bring that to the light and hit him HARD HARD HARD on all the deceptions.

Ask him to name two or three specific conservatives he admires, would seek advice from, or consider for cabinet positions. That could be a most telling response.

Questions are to obtain information, and sometimes to convey a point. Either way a complete waste of time to put a question to Romney.

Nor does he want your questions. He wants only your votes.

2nd question:

Are you being blackmail?

If you are, is it over your eligibility to run for president?

This is a simple “yes” or “no” answer.

I would not waste my breath asking Romney a question. At least not a political question.

Romney's only going to answer with whatever he thinks you want to hear.

Sad but true. That is Mitt Romney.

OK, I’ll play:

It’s a long question, but here it is:

Q - Governor, if Americans have the opportunity to watch you debate Barack 0bama this Fall, will you call him out on his continuous lies, and will you look directly into the camera and tell the viewers “if you think you’re better off than you were 4 years ago, when gasoline was around $1.85 a gallon, when unemployment was 7.6 percent instead of over 8 percent now, if you think Barack 0bama deserves a chance to raise your taxes even more, then vote for him. On the other hand, if you think America can do better than the incompetence and corruption of the past four years, consider voting for me”.

What will you do to end the obvious manipulation of the Gold and Silver markets?

and

Will you audit the Fed?

It is my belief that these questions are the last thing Mitt and his RINO masters want to answer -- truthfully.

My question will be... "Are you planing on prosecuting Eric Holder and/or all of those involved in the Fast and The Furious for gun running crimes that lead to the murder of Mexicans as well as a US Border patrol agent?"

MY guess is no one will be prosecuted. Dems and Repubs cover each other back in Washington, I could almost bet my life on it.
