    Mitt Romney Delivers Remarks in Illinois

    I helped start companies that began just as an idea and somehow made it through all the inevitable difficulties to create thousands of jobs. Those jobs helped families buy their first homes, put kids through school, live better lives, dream a little bigger.

    We once built the interstate highway system and the Hoover Dam.

    We once led the world in manufacturing, exports, and infrastructure investment.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Romney senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom was asked on CNN whether Romney may be forced so far to the right by rivals Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich in the primary race that it might hurt him if he's the party's nominee in the fall. Fehrnstrom responded: "I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It's almost like an Etch-A-Sketch — you can kind of shake it up and we start all over again."

    I can't believe what I'm reading. Infrastructure investment? From a Republican????? Really?????

    We once built the interstate highway system and the Hoover Dam. And then he uses big government projects as examples of what he wants to do? Really? I smell "stimulus".

    Can you imagine how long it would take to build a national highway system today with the mountains of regs on wild toads, yellow salamanders, blind cockroaches, etc. There would have to be a moratorium and federal study every five minutes.

    New York's got many capital improvements going on thanks to the stimulus.

    How many are going on in Republican states?

    Mitt pretty much was forced to come out the other day & say "F the independents" in response to the question of whether he would throw the eXtreme Righties under the bus (run to the Left during the GE) :rofl:

    Heck we can't even rebuild the twin towers. How many years ago was that? And where is the reconstruction at?

    Seems like I recall a president saying we would rebuild?
