DEAR EDITOR:

It seems the MDJ has endorsed Mitt “Robber Baron” Romney for President, calling him “one who would lead ...” Lead us to what?

Robber Baron Romney made millions by loading up companies with debt, shutting down factories and throwing people out of good jobs, shipping jobs to slave wage nations then claiming “credit” for the “creation” of sorry low wage service jobs to “replace” the good ones he destroyed! Robber Baron Romney even bragged to his rich friends about the low wages and sorry conditions in a factory in China he was going to buy! This is what Robber Baron Romney would “lead” us to: slave wage jobs in china and — maybe — a few low wage service jobs for Americans! Romney and the GOP consider such a “standard” of (non) “living” to be the new “middle class!”

I won’t get into his health care serial lies and flip flops other than he has changed from a ban on insurance companies blackballing those with preexisting conditions, then saying it is OK for this repugnant practice to continue to being so out of touch with ordinary people realities as to say people can get care in ERs, which is the most expensive way to treat people and which leads to thousands dying — as if that even matters to the GOP — due to inadequate primary care.

Robber Baron Romney is a Gordon Gekko Robber Baron right out of “Wall Street,” is a serial liar on health care and isn’t fit to run a dog pound — as evidenced by his own dog — much less be the leader of the USA for all the people!

Remember though. The "Robber Barons" created the oil, steel, railroad and auto industries without which there would be NO union jobs today.

You've the right of it. It's George W. Bush, the sequel.

If Romney wins, middle class, senior and especially women voters who support him will rue the day, especially if the GOP takes control of both houses of congress.

As Gov. Chris Christie says, Obama is wandering around 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in the dark, a man feeling the walls, clutching for the lightswitch of leadership.

There are plenty of clues, but Obama is clueless.

And what, Foley, you think Romney and the GOP is fighting a war on women? Well, bite me. It's not true.

@ Laura A - Bite you? No thanks.

The Governor Christie who was challenged by Jerry Brown to a three mile run? Yeah, he knows what's going on in the WH.

Be sure to tune in Friday if you'd like to be educated about Romney-Ryan and women.

Watch out Laura if Kevin were to bite you that huge gap between his two front teeth would leave a ugly scar.

This is the sort of reasoning that got us into the present mess! Maybe when we collapse, economically, like Greece, something might sink in. Get this: Obama simply either does not understand how to make the economy work, or else he is dragging us into unsupportable debt on purpose. Either way, we stand to lose. All of us, including you.

Robber baron Romney? SEriously, what was John Kerry? John Edwards? At least Mitt made his money the old fashioned way: he earned it.

As for Foley, doesn't this guy already have a column in this paper? Why is he posting on everything having to do with the presidential election? Like, you don't have enough places to spout your liberal trash? Come on.
