This is a good interview from yesterday with Romney on Fox Business. Given his big energy speech, he goes into some details with regard to his energy policy and how he plans to get us energy independent in 8 years. He’s really given this some thought.

Also Romney talks about replacing the Fed Chairman and why, but hasn’t given much thought to it.

Watch below:

    Starting to really, really LIKE this guy.

    • FutureOnePercent

      I think that interview made me like him less?

      Wants to keep the same progressive tax code?

      Progressive tax codes attack success. Bottom line.

      To quote Paul Ryan, “It’s just that simple”

      • Betsey_Ross

        I have a feeling that this will be negotiable later on. There aren’t enough of the fair tax, flat tax in Congress yet. It’s coming.

  • FutureOnePercent

    Anyone else think that “I want to keep things status quo” will be taken out of context and used in ads?

    • Rshill7

      Sure. They’ll use whatever they can get, and get whatever they can use. They’re still going to get trounced and bounced though. The voters are going to give them the bum’s rush right out of town.

      I’m Rshill7, and I cobbled together, this message.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      He really messed up there you know the libs are going to use it.

  • Rshill7

    Wouldn’t it be great having our own energy that we get right here? Ya’ reckon having an abundance of our own supply that doesn’t have to travel halfway ’round the world by supertanker might cause prices to drop?

    It’ll be truly great having an actual capitalist, who is friendly to, and super successful in, business, won’t it? The tens of thousands of new federal regulations need to be rolled back and government tentacles chopped off.

    Why? Because tentacles suck, that’s why.

      Have to get rid of the EPA first and foremost.

      • Rshill7

        Oh yes. Nixon launched that fiasco. They are ridiculous these days. Talk about business killers. Yikes.

        Get rid of the EPA, or at least hogtie it, should be the first hymn in the new choir book.

        Ahem, mi, mi, mi…Close that EPA right down, doodah, doodah. Shut it down and tap that ground, all the doodah day…

        To the tune of “Camptown Races”.

        • Betsey_Ross

          Bring it on!!!!!!

      All I know is in Brazil, they pay what 5% what we do per gallon?

      • Rshill7

        I don’t know, can’t stop singing long enough to find out. Maybe I’ll put a lien on my house and drive down there with the proceeds. Doodah, doodah.

    • Betsey_Ross

      You better believe that as soon as Romney wins and shows that he is serious about it the price of oil will drop like a rock to discourage us from drilling our own. However, we all know benefits of being oil independent, but it will look scary for a while. Or not. The Mid-East situation may just errupt, but in the long run drilling our own is the best long term solution for this country.

    • sDee

      “tentacles suck”

      Exactly!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I really did not like his answer on the top earners he sounded a little bit like obama I wouldve liked him to just say I want to lower the taxes on every american. I really think he should get some coaching on how to sound serious and at the same time sound personal.

  • FutureOnePercent

    Ron Paul for Fed Chairman…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MVB7D2KTCEW6NQCZ3JQMOHPFOU V.L.

      Ha! How long would it take for him to dismantle it?

  • badbadlibs

    The contrast between bo and Gov. Romney is so stark, it would seem that even a casual observer could see that bo’s policies have brought us gas prices over 4 dollars again and deny Americans inexpensive energy. Yet his approval ratings are remarkably high.
    People don’t seem to be making the connection between America’s woes and bo’s policies.
    I’m stumped.

    • Rshill7

      Gas prices are a HUGE tax on poor and middle class folk. Regressive as heck. I can’t imagine being a straight commission salesman like I was back in the 80’s and 90’s traveling all over the place by motorized buggy. I’d have to invest in a horse and feed him Ramen and sugarplums. At least I could get those little dancing sugarplums from my own head.

      “OK, this square dance is over ya’ little rascals! C’mere a minute.”

      • sDee

        If the Progressives were truly serious about…. being “fair”, using the regulation to modify the behavior of its citizens, the “environment”, fostering the purchase of fuel efficient cars, and developing negative incentives to discourage use of gasoline, they would simply ration it. Everyone gets a max of a 20 gallons/week gas card, 5,000 kWh/month electricity and 20,000 air/train miles per year. That is fair, no?

        But of course, that would impact the elites themselves more than anyone. And we all know that none of the above is really the true goal of the Progressives.

        The real goal is to restrict our freedom of movement and concentrate us in high density areas where we are even more dependent on government services.

        • badbadlibs

          Now what would al gore do with his huge home if he could only use electricity for 15min a day? And how would he get his private jet in the air…..
          Great and I mean GREAT points, sDee.

      • badbadlibs

        But, the dems say they’re all for the poor and middle class….I’m still stunned at the amount of ignorance so many people display by their votes.

  • poljunkie

    Extend the branch to Ron Paul for Chairman of the Fed. It’s a good fit.

    • sDee

      His top 6 donors: Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Credit Suisse, Citigroup.

      Not exactly the kinda folks that take too kindly to Ron Paul.

      • poljunkie

        Ya, sadly, I thought as much.

  • http://www.facebook.com/loyfrompueblowest Loy Banks

    Romney and Ryan will be the beginning of a fantastic New Administration that will move our wonderful country forward. Unlike like Obama, who leads from behind.

  • http://www.facebook.com/loyfrompueblowest Loy Banks

    And yes. The flat tax is coming.
