...does that count?

From my perspective, it's clear that Romney has been a "businessman" much longer than he's been a politician. In politics, one is expected to take a stand on the issues and be able to justify his position.

In business, one is expected to say or do whatever it takes to close the deal.

Romney wants the presidency because it would look good on his reume. He has outlined no vision for the country's future. He simply says what his handlers tell him to say. His underlings make all the decisions for him, as has been obvious throughout the tprimary campaign and has been confirmed repeatedly during the interim. He's running on the "I'm not Obama" theme, hoping that there are enough anti-Obama voters who won't examine him very closely.

He isn't a leader. He's a figurehead. A pliable empty suit, awaiting orders from the GOP's corporate masters. A GW Bush with slightly more intellect but considerably less personality. He'll simply toe the neocon line if he gets to the White House. And the Bush era will be repeated.

And that's what should concern voters.

Yep, just like Obama.

And people are still stuck on the political merry-go-round thinking they'll get "change" for the better when both parties are virtually the same.

Want a candidate who doesn't flip-flop? Do you want a candidate who says what he means and means what he says? The answer is plain as the nose on your face: Ron Paul

Otherwise, y'all are just full of hot air.

How about we use the Media's explination of Obamas changing views.

Evolution.


evidently evolution as used by the media to discuss Bammers changing views is a good thing.

So there. Mr Romney's changing views are a matter of evolution and that is a good thing.

If it is good for the goose and all that....

I don't think you can call repeatedly switching sides on an issue "evolution."

Yes, Romney wants President of the United States on his resume, because down the road he would like to apply for Emperor of the Universe, and this would be a good stepping stone type job to get his feet wet and pad the resume so to speak. This would catch the eye of voters outside the Milkyway Galaxy.

I agree, Obama's repeatedly changing views are flip flopping.

Obama was for gay marriage, then against it, then kinda for it, then against it, now for it...where it will stop who knows!

Even when he just changes them once it is always timed for political expediency.

He's a guy who's lived in luxury and privilege since birth and seems to have the entitlement attitude that sometimes accompanies that circumstance. He wants to be the first mormon president and have his legacy written large in the history books. Because now he's no more than a short footnote. He seems to believe that "little people" like you and me owe him that.

You seem to agree with him.

I don't.

So, we can post our opposing viewpoints here and one of us will be happier than the other in 5 months.

You must be Miss Cleo in disguise,
When you get done reading his mind and future, can you please tell me the winning lottery numbers for next week?

The two most often mentioned "Great" Democrat presidents of the 20th century were Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.

Both of those men were born of privilege.

Neither of them had a clue what “average Americans” were going thru. They were utterly out of touch. Yet democrats require Republican candidates to be “in touch” with average Americans.

Then there is Bobby Kennedy. He would have become president had he not been killed.
More recently Democrats nominated John Kerry to run for president. And utterly out of touch ultra rich Ivy League guy.
Before that it was Al Gore. Yet another “son of privilege.

I am tired of and disgusted by liberal hypocritical attacks.

And you must be Helen Keller if you've been unable to take note of the obvious. And in that case, your support of Romney is understandable.
