    I saw on Drudge that Perot endorsed Romney and Honey Boo Boo endorsed Obama and I thought to myself "I couldn't possibly care less." But it got me to wondering whose endorsements, if any, carry weigh with me.

    So that's my question...do endorsements, celebrity, politician, newspaper or any other affect your opinion?

    That should be whose, not who's, in the title....posting from the phone. :/

    I would come down to who it was to be honest. My reason is a lot of job creators are backing Romney and so do I

    No celebrity, paper or cable show shapes my opinion. I listen to the politicians and I research the numbers. The trick is to weed through the bullshit which is very tough to do.

    John Elway, Stacy Dash, Greg Anthony, Clint Eastwood, Kid Rock, Chuck Norris, Cindy Crawford. These fine Americans are leading the way for Romney.

    While there are a few I would lend my ear to...none that I believe would sway my opinion based solely on an endorsement.

    Amen, David, I agree about honesty, best point made. We have so many lies and such hatred coming from the White House. Unheard of.

    That's why I've been posting about Taqiyya and Kitman, Obama's immoral code/way of life; an important subject. This seems to be turning out as a good v. evil race rather than a political one.

    Bottom line for me -- > Romney does not hate America. I believe he loves her.
