Comedian Dennis Miller Supports Romney: “He’s a Good Man”

Comedian Dennis Miller knows what we know…

Mitt Romney has led an exemplary life and, much to the chagrin of Team Obama, IS A VERY GOOD MAN:

Romney Press Office:

Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of political commentator and television and radio personality Dennis Miller.

Dennis Miller is a funny guy, but he understands that the challenges facing our nation are no laughing matter, said Mitt Romney. “We’ve both traveled across America, and we’ve seen hardship in many different forms. Whether it’s the family that can’t pay the mortgage, the unemployed worker who can’t find a job, or the kids graduating from college with no prospects for a career, too many people are hurting. This country needs a turnaround, one that I can deliver. As I travel around the country explaining my plan for a stronger middle class, I am happy to have Dennis Miller on my team.”

I’ll be voting for Mitt Romney on November 6th because he is a good man perfectly suited to help solve our many problems,” said Dennis Miller. “Let’s be honest with each other, folks. If we’ve reached a time in our nation’s history where men like Romney are demonized and said to be the problem, we are missing the point as badly as the point can be missed. The punditry always says that Romney ‘looks’ Presidential. Here’s what they don’t tell you. It has little if anything to do with his appearance and absolutely everything to do with the way he has led his life. Vote Romney-Ryan.”

Background On Dennis Miller:

Dennis Miller is a political commentator and television and radio personality. He began his career on Saturday Night live in 1985 and later hosted a string of talk show programs. Miller currently hosts a daily, three-hour, self-titled talk radio program, nationally syndicated by Dial Global and is a regular political commentator on The O’Reilly Factor.

Had to throw in a few Millerisms:

Why is electricity so expensive these days? Why does it cost so much for something I can make with a balloon and my hair?

You’ve got bad eating habits if you use a grocery cart in 7-Eleven.

Washington, DC is to lying what Wisconsin is to cheese.


The day before the second presidential debate (Oct 15, 2012) Miller asked what I’ve been asking. Why, in all fairness, shouldn’t one in four of the debates be moderated by someone from FOX News?

    MUST WATCH: Ann Coulter Hits the Nail on the Head

    Great video of Ann Coulter discussing Newt Gingrich and the South Carolina primary. Check it out:

    When I listen to Gingrich in his debate performances, and I do mean “performances,” his answers always seem reminiscent of the Shakespeare line, “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

    I, for one, was very confused and dumbfounded about the whole “standing ovation” thing that Newt accomplished in South Carolina. I truly felt that Gingrich’s answers weren’t that amazing. In fact, the answers were really quite average if you take just a moment to think about what he said. Often Newt dodged the question rather than answered it. Or he resorted to giving snarky, glib retorts rather than having a grown-up conversation about the issues. Hopefully Republican voters in Florida will see that many of Newt’s “great debate performances” are really just dodging the question in order to distract from his genuine flaws.

    Following Debates and Christie/Palin un-announcements, Romney Retakes Lead in RCP Polls and Soars on Intrade.com

    Debates have consequences. When you don’t prepare you don’t do well, and people will notice.

    On August 15th Rick Perry announced his candidacy for the office of President and very quickly surged to front-runner status, a position that Mitt had held for some time. In the last few weeks we have witnessed three GOP debates, and we’ve received news that two major would-be candidates, Chris Christie and Sarah Palin, have declined to enter the race. These events have made a huge impact on the state of the race, which is now entirely different from just 6 weeks ago.

    Real Clear Politics has a running average of national polls for the GOP 2012 that includes just the most recent numbers from a variety of polling organizations. The graph below (from RCP) shows the polling trends for each of the candidates. (Romney=Purple Perry=Blue Cain=Red)

    Another site I like to follow is Intrade.com, which is online trading exchange website. Real people speculate on the outcome of certain events and basically buy and sell stocks (wager) based on how likely they feel a certain outcome is. It is interesting to follow since these are people who have money on the line and are watching the news and momentum trends with great interest. Below is a graph for the top 3 polling candidates right now and the closing values of their stock going back to the beginning of September. I included in the graph some dotted lines to signify when the debates took place, and when Christie officially declined to enter the race.

    My take: Team Romney is soaring high right now and it is evident by the high number of endorsements and fundraisers that are jumping aboard. But Team Romney shouldn’t become complacent (I don’t think they will) because as Perry’s campaign is taking a nose-dive Herman Cain is there picking up much of the slack. It is true Cain is rising very fast in the polls, but whether that rise mounts to a strong challenge against Romney… we will have to wait and see. Much will be decided in the coming debates.

    Romney Campaign Shifting Into Higher Gear


    Now that August is here…

    the Romney campaign is shifting into higher gear.

    WashingtonPost.com:

    [...] Republican front-runner Mitt Romney plans to pick up his pace this month as the 2012 sweepstakes intensifies, with a blitz of appearances in early voting states and a list of policy proposals.

    In what his top advisers described as a new phase of his campaign, Romney will focus almost exclusively on what he considers President Obama’s greatest vulnerability: the economy and job creation. Romney plans to continue his relentless assault on Obama[...]

    In August, Romney plans to hold seven town hall events in New Hampshire, where he owns a vacation home and which he views as a must-win primary. He is scheduled to spend two days campaigning in Iowa, home to the nation’s first caucuses, and will hold fundraisers and possibly public events elsewhere across the country, including California, New York, Utah and Texas.

    Romney’s campaign will intensify further in September, when he has committed to take the stage at three debates and plans to begin rolling out a detailed policy agenda with a series of major speeches.

    Romney has kept a deliberately quiet profile in the early months of the campaign, even as he has faced pressure from some supporters to escalate his public activity. It’s a strategy that seems to have served him well, as he amassed a money advantage and kept his lead in early polls.

    Given that Obama raised $47 million for his reelection and $38 million for the DNC in the second quarter, Romney’s schedule has been wisely balanced with plenty of fundraising events and public events. This week, just as wisely, he’s taking some well-deserved time off to enjoy his large family at Lake Winnipesaukee:

    There’s a reason the success of Christmas sales in July is not tremendous,” said Stuart Stevens, Romney’s chief strategist. “There’s a rhythm to these things, and you want to talk about stuff when people are paying attention. I just think a whole level of people are going to begin to start to focus more in the fall.”

    Stevens said that Romney is “working like a dog.” Indeed, his travel itinerary over the past few months has been intense. But the majority of his visits have been fundraising events closed to the press. Last week, he held just one public event, a factory tour and speech in Pataskala, Ohio. This week he has no events planned; aides said he is resting with his family in New Hampshire at their home on Lake Winnipesaukee.

    Romney will begin his new push on Monday with a town hall in Nashua, N.H. From there, he heads to Iowa, where he will campaign Aug. 10 and visit the State Fair on Aug. 11 before that evening’s debate in Des Moines. Romney, who is skipping the straw poll, returns to New Hampshire Aug. 12 for a forum at Republican activist Ovide Lamontagne’s Manchester home. Romney plans more New Hampshire town halls on Aug. 15 in Plymouth, Aug. 16 in Berlin, Aug. 24 in Lebanon and Aug. 25 in Kingston and Dover.
