Quotes from Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney backstage at Fox News discusses his horses and "only brave men" will wear a pink tie

[Romney's] stump speech in Ormond Beach, Fla., on Sunday was interrupted by chants of "We are the people." ... According to the report of the Los Angeles Times' Maeve Reston, he shouted back: “No, actually, these are the people. These are the people; you’re the interrupters. We believe in the Constitution. We believe in the right to speech. And you believe in interrupting. Take a hike.” This is not the first time Romney has been rattled by someone who would not let him finish a sentence. Interrupting Romney is the quickest way to make him mad. - National Journal

Romney was walking the rope line outside his headquarters in Charleston, S.C. on Thursday when a person off-camera asked, "What would you do to support the 99 percent seeing as how you're part of the 1 percent?" That's a fair question, but Romney's testy response suggests that he thinks folks who ask such things must support communist or dictatorial regimes in Cuba, North Korea, China etc. He ends this diatribe saying, "America is right, and you're wrong." - Craig Crawford

Romney to 21 year old college student: “What I can promise you is this – when you get out of college, if I’m president you’ll have a job. If President Obama is reelected, you will not be able to get a job.”

I was watching C-SPAN, and I saw Vice President Dick Cheney, and he was being asked questions about a whole host of issues -- following 9/11, the affairs in various countries in the world. And I listened to him speak and said whether you agree or disagree with him, this is a man of wisdom and judgment, and he could have been president of the United States. That's the kind of person I’d like to have -- a person of wisdom and judgment. - Mitt Romeny asked about who might be his vice president

Romney made millions selling cancer to Russians

Romney would rely on business consultants to run the country

Personal to campaign media: Sam Smith - Please stop referring to Mitt Romney as a businessman. He's not; he's an investment banker who makes money off of businessmen and through buying and selling their businesses. As any business owner can tell you; this is miles from the same thing.

The pathological deceit of Mitt Romney

Romney lied about state residency

NY Times editorial - Mr. Romney’s entire campaign rests on a foundation of short, utterly false sound bites. The stimulus failed. (Three million employed people beg to differ.) The auto bailout was a mistake. (Another million jobs.) Spending is out of control. (Spending growth is actually lower than under all modern Republican presidents.) He says these kinds of things so often that millions of Americans believe them to be the truth.

It hasn't helped the economy but, according to the Labor Department, employment is down 608,000 since February 2009 while Mitt Romney claims that we have 145,000 more government workers under this president.
