Romney Adds More Meat To The Bones

The Washington Post is reporting Matt Rhoades has signed up with Team Romney. Rhoades is the former research director of the RNC and Bush/Cheney. Rhoades "has a direct line to Matt Drudge". It is expected that will be working in the communications department of the Romney campaign.

I believe few things in life can be as dangerous as a politician with -- or merely seeking -- power. And New Hampshire is soon to be the hotbed for vote-seeking candidates. That's why I'm spearheading a drive to require Warning Labels On Politicians.

Warning labels already appear on drugs, cigarettes, pesticides and other items that can negatively impact a person’s health and well-being. So why not require similar warnings on members of society who have proven themselves as dangerous – or more dangerous – than many items that already carry such labels – politicians!

Through this Warning Labels On Politicians effort, I'm calling on politicians from across the political spectrum to be “transparent” with voters and agree to display warning labels on all literature, signage and advertising related to their campaigns. First on my list are two U.S. senators, Clinton of New York and John McCain of Arizona.

Due to the their status as party frontrunners for the White House in 2008, I’m calling on Senators Clinton and McCain to serve as examples for politicians at all levels of government.

If they want to be viewed as honest, upfront and transparent, they’ll agree to place warning labels on all materials related to their campaigns.

To date, I've prepared warning labels for Clinton, McCain and a number of other politicians expected to launch 2008 White House bids. The list of “labeled” politicians thusfar includes Democrats John Edwards, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Tom Vilsack as well as three other Republicans: Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney.

Others, though not expected to run for the White House, also earned warning-label recognition. They are Nancy Pelosi, the first female ever elected to serve as Speaker of the House, and Sen. Harry Reid, who will begin serving as Senate majority leader in January.

As additional candidates surface on the national stage, more warning labels will be created, though not all will be presidential candidates. Stay tuned, New Hampshire!

Also, be advised Warning Labels On Politicians is not affiliated with any nonprofit organization or political action committee.
