    I know i know, he's an 'Evil Rich Racist' too. So you Obamabots can save your tired shite. I think we all get where you're coming from at this point. But this is pretty interesting to those who are not loony Obmabots.


    Ross Perot, the businessman who mounted the last major challenge to the two-party political system, said Tuesday he is backing Mitt Romney for president this year.

    Mr. Perot's 1992 campaign elevated the budget deficit to the forefront of politics, and six years later the federal government notched its first surplus in decades.

    "At stake is nothing less than our position in the world, our standard of living at home and our constitutional freedoms," Mr. Perot said in a statement released by the Romney campaign. "That is why I am endorsing Mitt Romney in his quest for the presidency. We can't afford four more years in which national debt mushrooms out of control, our government grows, and our military is weakened. Mitt has the background, experience, intelligence and integrity to turn things around. He has my absolute support."

    Like Mr. Romney this year, Mr. Perot made the argument in 1992 that the country needed a businessman to take control and execute a turnaround.

    Mr. Perot also wrote an op-ed for the Des Moines Register laying out his thinking. He called the economy "stagnant" and pointed to the same deficit trajectory that pushed him to enter the race in 1992.

    "It is this massive deficit spending that threatens to undermine our future standard of living. To pay for our government's massive debts, Washington's profligacy, our children and grandchildren will be paying interest and principal on the nation's debt for untold years into the future. That is wrong. It's not the way America ought to be," he wrote.

    I love Ross Perot.. He's done a lot to help my family personally.. He cares deeply about this nation and about our military. The military couldn't ask for a better friend than Ross Perot. God bless him richly!

    I voted for him and and have not voted since. I probably won't until someone like him comes along again.

    Folks can say what they want about Ross Perot, but he is a very smart and shrewd business man, and I voted for him too.

    He knew what he was talking about. It's too bad he got demolished by the Two-Party System. Poor guy was viciously smeared. Definitely a low-point in U.S. Election History.
