You may think that Romney may not be the best
representative the Republicans could have selected. At least I know what

things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney's
background can do it.

"Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked pot, never got
drunk, did not associate with communists
or terrorists, nor did he attend a church whose
pastor called for God to damn the US.
