I always have asked the core question about any politician running for President. Why?
It is the "why" that has Romney in the position he is in.
This has to be one of the most compromised politicians we have witnessed in any presidential contest. He stands for everything, anything and absolutely nothing.
That is the main problem with Mitt Romney.
Panic has entrenched the Romney Campaign in Boston. A negative, boring, lack of vision campaign in Tampa netted him absolutely nothing in the polls. Even the speakers at the Republican Convention forgot what their mission was and pompously promoted themselves, not Mitt Romney. That says much right there. So, when the time came for the Democratic Convention the Boston crew watched in poll tested HORROR of the dynamic, diverse, honest, energetic Democratic Convention. Practically, every speaker had praise and confidence in President Obama, they said it often. During the Democratic Convention nothing good was said of Mitt Romney, his character was attacked, his record scoured through and the question of trust was front and center. Hell, the Democrats even clapped for former President George W. Bush and his work for aids in Africa. His own party's convention could not even utter his name.
It comes down to this, when you confront the American Public and ask for their vote, you must give specifics on policies, you must capture your vision, you must be honest and mostly, you got to relate to Joe and Joesetta Bucketlist. He is unable to do all the above because he does not know how.
Mitt Romney has lived the American Dream, the American "Rich Financial" Dream. His only focus in his life has been his church, his family and making money. While making money he never thought of the aftermath of the decisions he made, he did not care. Mitt Romney has shattered many lives, American Dreams for the bottomline, his money. This equates to a man with no conscience, one who is cold as steel.
Watching this hilarity of his campaign now only concludes to me that he will do anything, say anything, spend as much money as possible to have the keys to the oval office. Another thing, he will never be specific on any policy because he has sold that out all ready to the many millionaires and billionaires who want policy to only help THEM and no one else. He already sold his presidency to the premise that "corporations are people too".
In a phrase that Governor Deval Patrick (MA) stated during his speech in Charlotte, "He's a fine fellow and a great salesman, but as governor he was more interested in having the job than doing it."
Folks, Mitt Romney, if elected would not care if it was for ONE TERM. He only cares to check off the box for "President" on his bucket list.Cross-posted at Daily Kos.
