In a previous issue I mentioned that the possibility of Mitt Romney being elected President of the United States was a scary thought. Recent events have convinced me that a Romney Presidency would not only be scary, it would be a total disaster. His being owned lock, stock and barrel by Billionaires such as the Koch brothers and Sheldon Aldeson should bother all Americans. But when Romney politicized the recent events in Libya, that was Exhibit A of his unfitness to be President. His public media statements before he even knew the magnitude of what had happened were ill-advised and showed a total lack of understanding of how a President should react when our country’s interests are threatened. Romney’s handling of media questions during his news conference showed a man way out of his league. He looked very much like a deer in the headlights of an oncoming 18-wheeler. Can you imagine how he – as President – would react in the event of a crisis?
Even before Romney’s remarks about 47% of the American people being free loaders, ordinary folks had to know the GOP nominees had no concern for them. Working men and women will have a very hard time voting for Mitt Romney if they have taken even a casual look at his record. Besides being the all-time champion when it comes to flip-flopping, there is nothing about Romney that makes him attractive as a candidate to American workers. In fact, he is the very worst in my recollection on issues that affect workers and the middle-class. His background shows clearly that Romney has absolutely nothing in common with a person who works for a living or who has to worry about paying monthly bills. He neither understands what they have to deal with on a daily basis, nor does he comprehend what affects them in the workplace or at home. Any persons who are in the working-class who vote for Romney would be voting against their economic and social best interests. Such a vote would have to be for another reason and in that case it would be both a sad and a wrong reason.
A candidate whose public life is one of constantly changing positions – almost daily – might still get elected to some offices, but surely not to the highest office in the free world, that being the office of President of the United States. When a candidate won’t release his tax records and hides his millions in Swiss bank accounts, his motives for such actions are justifiably put at issue in an election. It should be noted that no candidate has ever been elected President who refused to disclose his tax returns. But even that failing is not the main reason to vote against the GOP nominee. Gov. Romney’s lack of understanding of what ordinary folks have to deal with and his tax plans that would gut the middle-class are enough to push the vast majority of Americans, who might be undecided or on the fence, over into the Obama ranks.
Romney’s present position on Obamacare is most interesting. The man who had promised to repeal and replace Obamacare during the primary races now says he is only against parts of the new law and would keep most of it. He even said at an appearance in Florida on September 20th that he was proud to be the “grandfather” of Obamacare. I wonder if the recent polls showing that most Americans approve of Obamacare had anything to do with this flip-flop on a critical part of his original campaign.
Can a person who really cares about America vote for a man like Mitt Romney, who is totally out of touch with the real world in which most folks live? I can only speak for one person and I can say without reservation that the thought of Romney becoming President is a very scary thought. His performance at a fund-raiser in Florida indicating he didn’t care about 47% of the American people tells us that he is totally unfit to be President. I have no doubt that his statements are exactly how he feels about the vast majority of Americans.
