Rep. Bono Mack Endorses Romney

45h District Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack gives nod to former Governor Mitt Romney for 2012 GOP Bid.

U.S. Representative Mary Bono Mack (R-Palm Springs) has endorsed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney for the Republican bid for the 2012 presidential race.

Bono Mack was one of ten elected officials from California to endorse Romney on Thursday. 

"Mitt has a strong, proven record of leadership in both the private and public
sectors," Bono Mack said in a news release. "As President, Mitt Romney will focus his attention and considerable skills on reviving our economy and creating jobs."

Romney is considered one of the leading candidates for the Republican nomination, which he also sought in 2008. 

The former Governor is known for his business sensibilities, but has come under fire for overseeing a massive change to the Massachusetts health care plan, which is considered the basis for the national health care plan President Obama enacted last
year. 

Romney was a part of Bono Mack’s local campaign efforts, helping raise $50,000 for the Representative’s 2010 re-election with a fundraising appearance in Palm Desert.

Romney claims Obama made the recession worse. In fact, GDP growth was negative when Obama took office and now it is positive. What doesn’t Romney understand about the definition of the word “worse”? Romney says after Obama took office he “traveled around the globe to apologize for America”. Romney, who made a fortune liquidating American rustbelt companies and sending jobs to China, unquestionably has more sophisticated foreign policy expertise than Obama. After all, as CEO of Bain Capital he could probably see New Hampshire from his office. Romney criticizes Obama because “foreclosures are still at record levels... (and) ...prices of homes continue to fall”. He doesn’t exactly say how, but surely this means Romney will slow foreclosures and halt the decline in prices within his first three years as President. It’s great news that he has figured out a solution to such a vast and difficult problem. I’m not sure what the details are but he seems like such a nice man, I’m sure he can do it. Romney says when he became governor of Massachusetts he refused to raise taxes. Maybe he refused, but the legislature didn’t. They raised taxes on business by $140 million per year, and Romney supported 90 new or revised “fees” which raised another $59 million per year. Of course “fees” are not taxes, unless your name is Obama. What does this say about Mary Bono-Mack? I don’t know. Maybe just that $50,000 is the right number.

As a Very conservative Republican, I am sick of the negative ads by Mitt Romney. As of the Florida primaries I have lost confidence in the Republican process, Mitt Romney has distroyed the party with his arrogance and negative distruction of the other candidates. I can not vote for a man that supported the same healthcare issues that I oppose with the Obama adminitration. His 2 negatives are so bad that at this time I choose not to vote. The process discusses me. What concerns me the most is the Republican Party supports this man. This is like supporting McCain, He never had a chance. The appropriate candidate will have to speak well and energize the base. No Energy here. I still like Newt, dispite the luggage. Jeff Miller

"...at this time I choose not to vote." As more and more people adopt this attitude the predictability of an election outcome and the chances that it actually represents the real desires of the electorate go down. Just imagine what happens when only 50 people in the entire country vote. A madman can get elected. A dead person can get elected. We might as well toss a coin. The world rightfully stops trusting the United States because it is like an unstable radioactive isotope that can explode or self-destruct at any moment. This is the Republican Way. Gerrymander to the max. Make voting difficult and illegal for as many people as possible. Elections are determined by a handful of fanatic mullahs from the Party Central Committee. Make sure the options stink so everyone is too demoralized and exhausted from arguing to take a stand. These people know exactly what they are doing and “the base” is running off the cliff, right on cue.
