More assertive? That sounds just like what the terrorist want to hear. That should fire them up a bit more.

In promising to arm the “Syrian” rebels – the majority of whom are not even Syrian – Romney has pledged to send taxpayer money to Al-Qaeda militants who have been responsible for carrying out terrorist attacks which have killed hundreds of people. Syrian opposition forces have also been filmed on several occasions burning the U.S. flag. An opposition fighter recently spoke of his desire to see the Al-Qaeda flag fly over the White House once the rebels are victorious across the region. These are the same people Mitt Romney is pledging to support with heavy weaponry.

Romney tax reform does not add up. Romney tax reform will raise taxes on the middle class. Every non partism tax institute that studies taxes says it will raise taxes.

Romney wants to borrow more money to spend on the military. This will raise the debt.

"We’ve seen what Romney does when he fears the right: He folds. That’s how his tax cut, which was initially modest, grew so large. That’s how he yoked himself to the insanely large cuts required by the Cut, Cap and Balance pledge. That’s how he signed Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge after opposing it in Massachusetts. That’s how he came to call the individual mandate, a policy he’d passed in his state and publicly championed for the nation, unconstitutional.
Romney isn’t an ideological moderate. He’s a pragmatic executive. When he needs to govern from the center, he does. When he needs to lurch to the right, off he goes. So if you want to know how he’ll govern, don’t listen to what he says. Look at who he has reason to fear."

Look at how the amounts of federal money Medicaid has gone up unporportionally to the state of Massachusetts for Romneycare. Look it up on the internet. The federal government needs to cut the amount of Medicare money going to Massachusettes.

True. His jobs creation depends on creating jobs dependent on government in military spending. He must support wasteful spending on out dated and unwanted military equipment. Military spending has become earmark welfare for members of congress to help them get re-elected at tax payers expense.

Without massive federal funding Romneycare would have never started and would not exist. Now Mitt wants to pull the ladder up behind him and have all the other states set up their own individual plans.

Kennedy help raise the amount of federal medicaid money going to Romneycare. Massachusetts receives massive amounts of medicaid money for Romneycare.

Let's get 'tough' on Russia and China. Raise the rhetoric, because escalating arms build up creates jobs.

Great idea, Mitt!
Let's borrow money from the Chinese to arm the Islamic fundamentalists in Syria for another "Arab spring" success! It's working so well in Libya and Egypt, right? The rebels must be our friends, and they will greet us with hugs and kisses and sharia.
Let the Syrians solve their own problems. Not every situation requires American intervention.

I think Romney wants to get into the White House and repeal Obamacare. Then he will basically pass the exact same thing. He has stated that his plan in Massachussets should be model for the country. The only thing Romney doesn't like about Obamacare is the name it starts with.
