NEW YORK (AP) — Mitt Romney has been on the national political stage for nearly a decade — through two presidential bids, countless campaign events and millions of dollars spent on TV ads. But most voters still don't know him.

So now he's trying to fix that.

Romney has started to introduce himself to voters in earnest through a combination of carefully selected media appearances and biographical ads — before President Barack Obama's efforts to define Romney in a negative light cripple his candidacy.

After a recent trip abroad, Romney is entering a period where the media glare will shine even brighter.

Waiting for the real Obama to stand up. We sure in the heck don’t know a thing about him or his past. At least from the mouth of lepers and himself.

I would settle for ALL Ubama’s college and High School records.

Translation: The corrupt media is going to take it up a notch.

Which means even bigger lies, more distortions, hate pieces and Alinsky inspired tactics pressed to the max by the Progressive Marxists all to benefit their beloved "Dear Leader".

There is no real Obama. He is a hologram.

Problem with that plan.

The economy is crap.

Obama is the other guy running.

Said this on another thread.

I don’t know. Something like this or saying the public has nothing to fear from an Obama administration? Which is it? It’s kind of hard to decide. /s

At least this guy acts like he wants to win.

IMO, the Leftist media doesn’t know what to make of him. They’ve seen a lot to like of him in the past. His current presentations must be making them nervous though.

Thus far, a very well-run campaign, IMHO.

Obama shot his wad in negative ads, got very little for it - the “you didn’t build it” line destroyed most if not all value.

Now Romney can come out with these type ads building to the convention.

Even at this point in the election is a very good position to be in.

The only man who can throw out Obama Hussein.
And that, as much as it may gall me, is what is best for America.

What a ugly mug...what a ugly traitor. To be sure, this leftist is on the list of those to be tried and imprisoned in the big house, if it’s the last thing We the People do.

That is the best and most accurate description I have heard.

I've got the best reason for conservatives to vote for Mitt Romney: to simply see if we have a transfer of power.

“The media is going all out to destroy Romney.”

When the drones at my job repeat the attacks verbatim from CNN/MSNBC/Comedy Central, I concur, then add my own outrageous ones: the Republicans eat children, etc.

They step back and think about how little a clue they have about what they’re parroting.

Thanks; I don’t know how else to reach people who think Jon Stewart is “the news”...
