Where is the truth and honesty in this campaign ?
How can anyone campaigning, who rewards their biggest campaign donors with appointments or money , be trusted ?
This is totally beyond belief. Are we all really just sheeple ? These questions can not go unanswered !




a review of the Romney's own 2006 appointees to Massachusetts posts — conducted by cross-referencing press releases with a Romney donor database — show Romney himself has a history of rewarding donors with political postions. Indeed, all but one of Romney's 2006 press releases for appointments are for Romney donors, a total of 15 out of 17 appointees.

You certainly fooled me. I thought, until I got down to your quote, that you were talking about Obama.

So let's see, Romney gives jobs to people who don't oppose him. That makes sense.

Many people who support Romney donate to his campaign. Obvious.

People who have proven themselves in the private sector tend to have lots of money and impressive credentials. OK

People who have lots of money are able to donate more. Sure

So you're worried? Why? Isn't that standard policy for all politicians?

All of the above. That's why I say our country is up for the highest bidder, every one of these will get their share.
It's hopeless no matter who wins the election. Obama will continue to shred the Constitution, Romney would auction it off. Or outsource for a re write.

All these successful corporations didn't become successful on their own, but a lot of people are better off as a result.

An interesting site: www.opensecrets.org... They report that so far in this campaign Obama has raised $255 million and Romney has raised $121 million. Are you really concerned about candidates and money?

Are we being serious?


Later, in March, Romney appointed Paul F. Kelly to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy Board of Trustees. Kelley had donated $50 to Romney's gubernatorial committee.


You really think these people got their positions because they donated $50 to a millionaire's campaign who gets bankrolled by...banks?

The reasons why these people got their positions was not because of their donations. Or maybe I'm missing some info or missed the joke. In which case, sorry.

OMG this happens all the time
Even Obama does this except since he's the POTUS he's given them WAYYY MORE powerful roles within Govt.

That's the entire point of over-regulation, they put lobbyists as heads of regulatory bodies
Then that mega-corp becomes a monopoly and people get screwed

Obama does this all the time

ah yes ... typical poltiician. If he were to win, he'd fit in nicely with all the other stink'n POTUS' we have had. He and Obama can exchange notes on rewarding campaign donors and on poltiical payoffs. Pretty SUCKY!
