I have to disagree. Rmoney was a one term governor because they caught on to him pretty quick. Instead of raising taxes, he raised fees on EVERYTHING. A rose by any other name... They were happy with Healthcare but were 47th in job growth. He didn't seek a second term because he knew he was toast.<quoted text>
I think Romney did a good job as governor in Massachusetts. If he had run on that record I would have supported him.
He needed to cater to the conservative base and has now said things which disavow what he did in Mass. So as far as I can see he is a man with business experience but no track record ingovernment. I think the two are very differnt and just because you are good in one does not mean you are competeent in the other.
If Romney wins, all I can hope for is that he will do teh same things he did as governor. The right will call him Judas and teh country will survive.
My crystal ball has greasy thumbprints on it. We will see.
He's no more a businessman than a mob boss is. He knows how to make money using other peoples money. If there were a Rmoney Industries, I could respect that. His father was before my time but he ran a brick and mortar business, that made things- cars- and employed people. Mitt doesn't work that way.
Nice that he moved towards the center but, that's what you do to get elected. Had he done that in the primaries, we'd have seen Anybody But Rmoney running right now. He's in deep to serious plutocrats and they are who he would answer too...if he were to be elected.
