My mama used to tell me you can always tell lots about a person by what they have to say and specifically by their choice of words. Over the years I have found that to be very true. In fact, what politicians say pretty much defines them and their vision for the people they are supposed to represent. I believe most folks in this country – regardless of political leanings – want our elected officials to represent all of the people in a bi-partisan manner and understand their needs and be sensitive to them. In order to do that the official must understand the needs and designs of ordinary folks. Let’s see what the man who wants to defeat President Obama and hold the highest office in the land had to say during the GOP primaries.
I’m not concerned about the very rich, they’re doing just fine. Corporations are people, my friend. Of course they are! I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.
These statements by Gov. Romney – in his own words – tell us a good bit about the man and also about his vision for America. Unfortunately for most Americans, he made the cut in the primaries, will be the GOP standard bearer, and has a chance to win in the fall.
But Romney will have a difficult time explaining his belief that a corporation is a person and that he isn’t concerned about the dire plight of the poor in the U.S. But considering his track record, I wouldn’t be surprised if he took another view or just flatly denied ever having made any of the statements. In any event, the Romney vision for our country excludes the overwhelming majority of Americans. However, the super-rich, who are bankrolling his campaign through the Super-PACs, have to really like what their candidate says and actually believes.
