Robert Reich: Un these last days before the election, we have learned enough about the beliefs of the Republican presidential candidate to see them as a worldview all its own – a kind of creed that explains Mitt Romney.
Jerry Drucker: Mitt apparently now wishes to HARVEST THE UNITED STATES, as he would for a food crop. So in the spirit of Romney’s interests in cooked books, here are some recipes:
Anthony Samad: We have to be true to ourselves in order to make a difference in our local communities. And, in being true to self, we show our character if we’re being true to what’s in the best interest of all.
Brent Budowsky: here is desperation and delusion in the air from the Republican side because they feel the election has been slipping away, and for once, regarding these Republicans, I must heartily agree with them.
Tina Dupuy: We’ve spent trillions to protect ourselves against terrorists and done nothing to keep our biggest cities above water in a storm.
Charley James: Voters are not becoming better informed and candidates get away with saying almost anything that pops into their heads. It was especially bad this year when Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan simply lied at every chance.
Rich Broderick: In the wake of megastorm Sandy, Bain Capital, which was co-founded by Mitt Romney and where he served as CEO until he resigned in 1999 but didn’t actually resign until 2002 when he really meant it, is planning to make a leveraged buyout of the entire Northeast.
Randy Shaw: The same folks who “sold” the Iraq invasion and the housing bubble are all in on the “Mitt-mentum” theme, but this time the voters are not buying.
Dan Farber: In his last year as governor, Romney refused to provide state assistance when major floods hit western Massachusetts., even though the state government had ample funds.
Charley James: We are losing democracy because the GOP and movement conservatives believe, “We’re rich enough. We’re clever enough. And, doggone it, people may not like us but we can do it anyway.”
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: It’s like Romney is that guy at a party who’s chatting up a lady and his wingman—let’s call him Senate candidate Richard Mourdock—saunters up and, instead of saying something smooth, offends the lady with whom Romney was hoping to close the deal.
Rick Broderick: In the case of Mitt Romney, we believe that the candidate has gone a bridge too far in appropriating the Bob Dobbs personality and stylistic attributes,
Denis Campbell and Michael Duniho: The correlation of Republican (or in the case of the Republican Presidential Primary, with Mitt Romney) strongly suggests vote count fraud, which would occur in larger precincts because it is easier to hide it there.
