this is a reply from someone in a comment section from a headline on what rommie is going to do.... I have the same question...when rommie is asked a question he always seems to revert to something else and not answer the question he was asked..... here is one man question


Phil • 22 mins ago
Mitt... answer this without blaming anyone. Exactly what will you do in the first 100 days to get this country back on the road. I don't want to hear about the present administration. What will you do? No mud slinging on this question. Tell the people what you will do. Not what some else has done wrong. We are tired of that. Now the big question..if it doesn't happen in 100 days.... what will you do? Your plan...Your stand ..what????? I dare you to reply back on this question.


The problem is when asked rommie has no answer..he diverts to something else. Here is another comment...these are comments when rommie was being interviewed by diane sawyer...

Adam • 40 mins ago
i like how he doesn't answer the question she asks in the interview. he's politically trained by all these debates to never answer the question asked.


over 14,000 comments in a bout 3 hours time.... goes to show rommie has problems answering whats important to the people out there.

I thought the elevator was to move vehicles, not people. It's hard to get a Cadi up stairs, their steering is sooooo loose.

Andrew Jackson called himself the spokesperson for the common man and when he was elected he was viewed as the middle-class' president' His net worth: $119 million in the early 19th century.

FDR is portrayed as 'the common man's President'. His net worth $60 million in the early 20th century.

LBJ is portrayed as a 'common man's President'. His new worth $100 million in the mid 20th century.

Not sure which POTUS was a common man.

Rick Santorum is 'only' worth $4 or $5 million. Not as 'rich' as some, but certainly richer than 99% of Americans and probably doesn't have to worry about struggling to pay any bills.

Obama's net worth is $10 or $11 million. He will be worth $100's of millions after he leaves the presidency.

Not sure what any of this matters, but I guess it is important to have a president who pumps gasoline. Sure hope none of our Presidents are ever from New Jersey or Oregon. No one there pumps their own gas in those states...

Truman comes closer than most, I think.

"In an interview with the Weekly Standard earlier this year, Mitt Romney said he learned this advice from his unsuccessful 1994 Senate race against Ted Kennedy: donít get too specific.

ďOne of the things I found in a short campaign against Ted Kennedy was that when I said, for instance, that I wanted to eliminate the Department of Education, that was used to suggest I donít care about education. So I think itís important for me to point out that I anticipate that there will be departments and agencies that will either be eliminated or combined with other agencies.Ē
But not going into the specifics of those plans, lest they come back to bite you in the ass apparently.

This is the new politics, where anything and everything a candidate says can and will be used against them... if possible.

Advice from MSNBC to "the common man"...
Quote:
"Itís almost tax day, and even if you really waited until the last minute this year, there are options out there for you.

The first thing to keep in mind is that you arenít alone. The Internal Revenue Service estimates that 20 to 25 percent of taxpayers file in the final weeks before tax day.

Plenty miss the deadline as well: The IRS estimates that about 10.5 million taxpayers filed for an extension last year..."

AtoB's rantings sound like someone chewing the sour grapes over his many failed "candidates". The reason they won't likely win is they can't get behind their candidate once they are "in place". Maybe I'll be wrong, but I feel that as long as fruit-loops like AtoB rail on about insipid fallacies - and until they stop calling their OWN party's candidate sophomoric names - their fate is sealed.
