This is my reason to feel more enthusiasm for Romney.


He received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University, then earned joint Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration degrees from Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School.

Romney entered the management consulting business which led to a position at Bain & Company, eventually serving as its CEO to lead it out of crisis.

He was also co-founder and head of the spin-off company Bain Capital, a private equity investment firm which became highly profitable and one of the largest such firms in the nation.

Romney organized and steered the 2002 Winter Olympics as President and CEO of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee, and helped turn the troubled Games into a financial success.

More reasons to support Romney:

Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents – including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show. In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters, and 14 registered Democrats.

This statistic of course provides fodder to Romney’s critics, who might suggest that it would be an indication of the type of judges Romney would appoint as President. Do these statistics indicate favor for Democrat or Independent judges by Romney?

Or, do his appointments suggest that Romney was a governor who was pragmatic and tried to make the court system as conservative as he could?

Romney’s own words on the subject might give us more insight into his thinking. Romney defended all of his appointments. He stated that “With regards to those at the district court and clerk magistrate level, their political views aren’t really going to come into play unless their views indicate they will be soft on crime…” Romney stated that his only criteria in picking lower court judges was that they were tough on crime, something he emphasized throughout his time as governor. Romney further elaborated by saying that his criteria would change if an opening were to come on the Massachusetts Supreme Court and then he would focus more on ensuring that the judge had a “strict constructionist, judicial philosophy.”

In addition, Romney’s attempts to turn the Massachusetts courts right can be seen in the appointment of Christopher Moore to chair the Judicial Nominating Commission. Christopher Moore is a conservative who is a member of the Federalist Society, which fights against judicial activism. As chair of the Judicial Nominating Commission, Moore was in an excellent position to ensure he could limit the selection of liberal activist judges who would legislate from the bench.


If given a fair look, Romney’s record shows a leader who was determined to move the courts in Massachusetts as far to the right as he could. Romney’s focus on appointing justices who were tough on crime should be applauded.

His efforts in creating a judicial nominating commission that would give conservatives a fair chance in a state dominated by liberals was a creative way of achieving the best possible results in difficult circumstances.

His appointment of conservative Christopher Moore to chair the Judicial Nominating Commission showed that Romney played his biggest cards where they mattered most. Due to his constant criticism of judicial activism, his statements of support for judges such as Samuel Alito and John Roberts should be taken at face value, as his record gives us very little that would counter those claims.

If Romney is elected President, conservatives can count on him to appoint Supreme Court justices which will respect the constitution, rather than legislate from the bench.

One of the things I really appreciate about Dennis is his profound moral clarity. He doesn't get distracted by the fluff...he gets right past the crap and moves in and focuses on the real issues. That is hard to find these days.

I'm sorry, but that guy who called has a complete misunderstanding of what this country is about.

That's why its so great to have choices as far as I'm concerned. Having a variety of conservative voices that fit different styles is one the great things about what Rush has done for Radio.

So who do you like?

In no particular order, Rush, Bill Bennett (Morning in American), Mark Levin, can’t leave out Mark Steyn when he’s on, I think all of these guys do a great service in getting the message out with great clarity on the message (subject).

I think most people know I am partial to Tammy Bruce. She is an apostate who speaks from which she came, the left. She was even president of the west coast NOW.

I find her an interesting lady. And can explain, from experience, what the left is doing and saying.

Like them all too. Bennet is on way to early for me in the morning although if I'm up I do listen to him. And Mark Steyn, well...let's just say I'm a groupie. :lol:

Would you vote for a white person who did this? I wouldn't and I think they would be run right out of town if they tried it! This is just some food for thought if you're pondering your vote in November!


Can you imagine Santorum or Romney or Newt or Paul putting out a call for all the white brothers and sisters to vote for him because he's white and so are they?
