    Recently a candidate for the Republican Party made this statement.

    Which group do you fall in

    I heard the entire quote, in context and I agree with him

    I heard the entire quote in context and I do not agree with him

    I did not hear the entire quote - but it was stupid of him to say.

    I did not hear the entire quote, but the media probably made it worse than it is...

    I've heard of the quote, but it really doesn't stir anything within me concerning the man. The fact is, there's really nothing about this man that enthuses me.

    And he's probably gonna be our next president.

    A poor choice of words, perhaps. But taken in context,a sentiment that is completely understandable.

    So if you go to an auto repair shop - and they do a lousy job, what you are saying is that you will take your car back there for other repairs?

    ???????????

    What I'm saying is Romney is kinda like tofu to me. So what if he likes being in a position to hire or fire, the rich and powerful have always had that privilege. Big deal.

    I would have no opinion about a quote of Mitt Romney since most are not the truth anyhow.

    To me, Romney is bland as it comes. Nothing about him enthuses me. He's gonna be same ol' same ol' big government bureaucrat.

    Of course, even a pro abortion anti Christian cult member. If the person is Republican, he has God's stamp of approval.

    Why is it when a direct question is asked (as in the OP)

    why do so many go chasing rabbits if they dint like the individual being discussed?


    Simple question and you had your choice of 4 answers.

    By making some of comments I read in this post, only gives me more reason why I would not vote for your candidate.

    Many people must fire other people but few enjoy it.

    When I became manager of a Christian Radio station, within the first two months I fired two people and the third; I took off salary and put him on straight commission (he quit about 6 weeks later)

    I did not enjoy letting them go - but they were not doing a good job - they were only "sliding by".

    In the the 2 & 1/2 years there, those were the only two I had to let go.

    Bill is right (everyone is entitled to be right once :smilewinkgrin:) a good manager does NOT enjoy letting people go.

    PS - Bill - You're FIRED! :tongue3: :laugh:
