Posted on 08/09/2012 3:23:34 PM PDT by BRL
In an election year filled with secret campaign money, the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has made the unlikely choice to go public with a big political donation.
The Ohio-based company, familiar as the producer of a ubiquitous plant fertilizer, is now a political player, donating $200,000 in June to the Restore Our Future super PAC supporting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

It is also possible that since he supported dem governor in past he decided to do this to undo some probs ?
Certainly , the Chik-fil-A thing is setting a precedent that being open about conservative things might not be so bad for the company.
Will do business with them more!

IIRC, I thought I saw an ad on MLB TV that Scott’s is the “Official” product for MLB Baseball (the stadiums with REAL grass/turf) and probably other sports also.
I use Scott’s Miracle Gro throughout the entire summer, love it
Cheers for Scotts Miracle Gro.
Probably a lot of liberals garden and use their products. Brave move by them.
When a company supports liberalism, the media never says they are “going out on a limb”.
Although the quality of Democrat "fertilizer" is undoubtedly greater ... and in much greater quantity ...
When you make a quality product you really don't have to worry about alienating customers that much. Nothing I know of works as well as Miracle Grow. My wife is constantly pouring that blue juice over her plants. Works great.
Worthy of a gardening ping?
They went out on a limb? I can almost guarantee that the economy will almost do an immediate 180 degree turn the minute Romney’s elected; simply, as a result of the relief they expect to get from a capitalist president.
Odds are, Democrats live in urban areas and don’t need fertilizer for their concrete stoop and iron fire escape, or they live in the suburbs and have a couple undocumented persons of non-American origin take care of their landscaping and gardening.
I have some bare lawn spots in need of seed, and I need a new spreader. Scotts it is!

I don’t know a whole lot about Miracle-Gro, but it may not be “organic” enough for a libtard...
I dont know a whole lot about Miracle-Gro, but it may not be organic enough for a libtard...You're correct; it is not organic. We garden organically, and use this stuff for our tomatoes, in addition to their whole line of "-tone" products.
Bingo! You got it right.
Hurray—I need fertilizer. Glad I didn’t go out and buy just any old brand.
Expect the EPA, IRS, and the Dept. of Agriculture to come down hard on them in the near future.
