Like I have always said, Romney is an ObamaNomics advocate in disguise with no qualifications to be president. One unqualified president is enough in every 100 years.

I disagree that Paul "stumbled" on foreign policy issues. He has *a lot* of ground to try to cover in his 60 seconds to respond to all the misguided stances paraded by the other candidates and too many in our media.

Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq ever attacked us, for instance. The Afghanis tried to hand bin Laden over instead of being attacked -- but the US was already planning to "remake" the region rather than going after bin Laden and the offer was rebuffed, for instance. We've fought for nearly 10 years in Afghanistan -- largely against those that simply oppose unsanctioned killings in an undeclared war against their nation ... instead of seeking bin Laden and his cohorts who had all fled the country within weeks of our military actions. The list goes on and on.

At any rate -- and regardless of how much one has studied why we're over there and what we're doing now -- to "BOO!" Paul when he modestly suggested that the 'Golden Rule' is an important principle for a nation like ours was particularly disheartening to me. Paul is right on many things. I'm very grateful he is in the debates to stand up for these things.

What qualification does Romney lack?

If I recall right. There was an earlier story out that Mitt contributed more than any other candidate to charities (total amount and rate).

If each candidate were to factor in both taxes and contributions rates, I'll bet Mitt's combined contributions/taxes are at a greater rate then any of the other candidates.

I find it interesting that after years of hearing "conservatives" hammer Obama over their percieved view that he would not disclose information about his past, mow Romney is balking at releasing his tax returns. Romney on begrudgingly agreed to release last years return, stating the he was in the lowest tax bracket. This is in deep contrast to the president his own father set by releasing over 12 years worth of returns, a tradition followed by every major candidate ever since including the Obamas.

So, so much for the full disclosure claims from the tea party crowd. It turns out they just aren't as different then those sitting on the other side of the isle. This will surely not dampen the support of those who claim Romney infallibility, but those who actually are seeking to know the candidates better, this will raise some questions on what Mit is trying to hold back.

There is a difference between a birth certificate and a tax return.
