I don't think I am the only one to greet Mitt Romney's announcement that he will be seeking the presidency with a total yawn. Neither exciting nor a practical change agent, Romney represents ALL that is wrong with moderate Republicanism.
Perhaps I could sum it up in one word: "Romneycare"
Add to this, he has already misjudged 60% of the primary electorate by coming out of the gate saying he believes Obama is a legit president, or at least that he is a citizen.
"I think the citizenship test has been passed. I believe the president was born in the United States. There are real reasons to get this guy out of office ..."
First off, count me as somewhat of a birther. Or at least as one who believes like that crazy-like-a-fox Trump, that Obama has some issues tied with the birth record he has spent gawd-awful amounts of money hiding. Not a good enough reason on its face? I mean seriously Mitt, 60% of people who voted with the Republicans think he wasn't born here. And as to the citizenship test, which one was that? Are you simply trying to not be skewered by the media that you expect to put you in as a McCain type who was easily controlled for 2012?
Controllable and easily manipulated. What a weasel. If he wins the primary, we will have another term of the worst president ever, because people will again sit on their hands. He would probably sell us out like Bush did when the bank situation arose anyhow. No principle whatsoever. No personal constitution.
This time we need to take a real look at the 'posers' like Romney, Gingrich, and even Huckabee who wouldn't do what needs to be done. Talk a great talk, but look at their records. At least Huckabee would be likely to look at a Fair Tax. I could vote for him. Even with him saying Obama grew up in Kenya, when we all know his childhood was spent in Indonesia.
Problem with that? See the "57 states" comment by the guy who is our current white house occupant. Actually, Kindergarten is where we learn how many states there are. Some of us actually might have learned about how Puerto Rico and Guam fit into the scheme too. But the dweller of 1600 Pennsylvania avenue never picked that up apparently.
And that occupant has a lot of questions that have yet to be answered. ~ more below ~
