Donna Hancock, you impress me.  I always look to see who is posting something great, and I often see YOUR name.  Thank you for what I see is quite noble and humble power behind the throne.   The fact that Mitt is the only one getting this gov sponsored protection only proves that they already chose their candidate if Obama won't continue.
