Regarding "Romney appears in Boise to boost his slate of candidates," and his comments in the article. I just have one burning question - is Mr. Romney kidding?!
He said GOP-dominated Idaho is a good example of how conservative principles can lead to economic prosperity. Again, he's got to be kidding. Idaho is in a terrible economic state. Has anyone noticed we're last or close to last in many economic indicators, including the preposterous $7.25 minimum wage and the fact that Idaho is first in per capita citizens working for that completely unlivable wage?
Forty-seven percent of U.S. citizens are freeloaders, according to Mr. Romney's infamous quote during his presidential bid. How about corporate welfare, effectively forcing taxpayers to pick up the tab so people can actually live. The absurdly low wages most Americans try to live on must be raised now to something liveable - our country's very survival depends on it.
Romney is also quoted as saying "There are more jobs in Idaho and you see rising incomes. If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Is anyone really convinced of the validity of his words? If so, God help us all.
