Mitt Romney Ignores Time As Governor
« on: May 24, 2012, 21:04 »
Article Here

You have to wonder why Mr. Romney would talk about how he would make a great leader, while avoiding talk of how he lead in the past. One would think if he was as successful as he thinks he is that he would try to capitalize on previous successes, would he not? Or is he actually ashamed of passing health care reform while he's trying to tear down Obama's reform? Something tells me his attacks on Obamacare at at the core of it, along with concerns over his "creative destruction" principles, which I think is a horrible idea. It's one of those things were the ends do not justify the means, given the kind of stress a failed business can have on those connected to it. If Romney wants to lead the nation, then he better not be afraid of people pulling up his past leadership positions, because that's what people are going to use to gauge his skills in this area.

I guess he knows he didn't do a good job?

That's certainly possible. Either way, it's not a good showing on his part.

Well, if you took his record as Governor, without knowing what party or what state he was governor of, you would assume he was a Democrat. Just like what happens when you look at successful Democrats from Texas (they are what the rest of us call Republicans. The Republicans there are what the rest of us call rabid right wing fanatics.) In a liberal state like MA, Romney wouldn't have been at all successful without a good deal of compromise and some outright liberal policies, including the MA health care plan, which is remarkably similar to the new Federal one that everyone insists on calling Obama-care. The more that part of his record gets mentioned, the more the extreme right will shy away from him, which could lead to low voter turn-out from his base on election day, which would kill him. (It isn't that they would ever vote for Obama, though in reallity, Obama's policies have been far more similar to a moderate republican than they have to the raving liberal lunatic the right wing media portrays him as. Not as much as Clinton was, mind you! Bill Clinton was the closest to a Rockafeller Republican to hold office since Nixon and in the 1996 Election was the more fiscally conservative candidate, compared with Bob Dole (or Dolt, I as usally think of him.)

That's a good point; he would pretty much be hurting himself to make a point of it. Democrats aren't going to vote for him, no matter what, and the Republicans don't want someone with any kind of decency in the White House, so... :XD:

You know, thinking of Romney coming up with descent policies almost makes me want to vote for him.
Okay, not really, but it does make me thing he's less of a jerk.
