So now it's come out that this was a private, invite only event and nobody ever had the intention of filling a football stadium but some left wing retard managed to take a shot or 2 and it's being used by every ******* around to compare to shots of Obama's 2008 public campaign events which were filled with Obama sack riders fawning over fake hope and change?

Oh how things change when the truth comes out.

Do we still have conservative media in this country? What would that be, because I am not sure it exists anymore in reality. I see the point about having an event at a venue too large, but it was not the Romney team who did it. They were not running this event and it was not free to the public. A limited number of tckets were sold for it. Even Mitt Romney joked about the size of the venue when he started his speech. He recognized the issue right off. I question why his staff wouldn't have before they agreed to it also. Not sure, but there might have been more to it.

It's really sad. As I said, I geniunely like Romney, but his blunders (quote;that cadillac line was pretty bad for romney.) have seriously harmed his perception image. I think he works so hard to sell himself...and tries to be honest about his 'money' .... it has caused blunders like his needless, harmful ''cadillac'' line.

I KNOW THIS...you can just talk TOO much.

There is not truth to it at all. This sort of rumor is being spread by his opponents...namely Santorum and Gingrich. They don't seem to understand that the two men can like each other and still not agree on every political position.

No but Rand Paul is likely on the short list.

There is NO TRUTH to it. Paul would NEVER SELL OUT. He said so himself to Larry Kudlow on CNN the other day and I think I posted it in another thread.

Doesn't seem to hurt the Obama campaign either.

I'd bet that he does get a position offered to him by Romney though...even if it is something like ambassador.

I bet he doesn't. Easy bet because the only way mittens will see the inside of the WH is as a visitor.
