    Romney is making a mistake doing this in a election cycle and during hard economic times for millions of American citizens around the country. This course of action makes him out to be a RINO elitist who is out of touch with the common citizen. This will definitely not score him any points with voters and it will give his rivals and GOP candidates ammo to criticize him with. Voters will resent this type of behaviour and turn to a more down to earth candidate that they can resonate with.

    Yes, President Romney is an "elitist." So what? Why all the resentment and class warfare? It's about time we got someone in there who knows what they're doing.

    And that doesn't include some governor who jacked up taxes on oil companies then quit halfway through her term.

    He is going to create some jobs and isn't that what you want?? He earned that money, it's not taxpayer money, so what's the problem with it? The bigger problem is Obama and his bus tour at tax payer expense, with a bus that was built and re-fitted in Canada with tax payer money, the bus from Mordor which created jobs in Canada but not here.:cuckoo:

    A true conservative does not play those class warfare games, that's a liberal ploy, not one conservatives hold to. We want those wealthy people spending their money as they create jobs and this is just one example of that. He will employ many so that those construction workers can support their families and bring home the bacon. In fact, he scores many points with me and I am a conservative.

    Since Romney carpetbagged his way into the governorship in Massachusetts, what's wrong with our Kenyan President having carpetbagged his way into the presidency? A vote for Romney is a vote of approval for Obama's violation of The U.S. Constitution - well, approval for one of several.

    It depends on which state it's in.

    In Kentucky $12 mil is a huge mansion.

    In Malibu it's upper-middle-class

    Did you have the same objections when Bush, Jr. used a Canadian bus?

    Is there any politician that isn't an elitist? I thought you had to be one to get elected.

    I guess only Palin qualifies as "non-elitist". :lol:

    Then dagnamit, he should have said that it was enough, but he had the funds available to do this and thought that providing jobs to improve the home would be good for the economy.

    Not adequate for his needs.

    I have never used this before tonight, but this is the second time I'm using it... /facepalm.
