Fabulous article! My respect for Mitt Romney continues to grow. He is truly a great man and clearly the most qualified candidate ever to seek the presidency. He will be a great president of the United States.

Without pre written speeches, which were delivered in an unconvincing way, Romney could not get it right. Insulted the British (read the comments of their leaders alone), insulted non Jewish people in the middle east, etc. The trip was a mess, and denying that it was, and blaming the media, does not change the fact. This is a campaign of rationalization. I shudder to think of a presidency of rationalization.

Plutocrats like Romney don't like government because democratic government (and organized labor) gives voice to the people and protects them from exploitation by the aristocratic self-centered super rich.

You can spin it all you want, but Romney stepped in it. He insulted people left and right, he also gave one of his few actual opinions, that war with Iran would be good. Sorry Utah, your boy is in trouble. He ruined the chance to capitalize on his Olympic experience and the biggest thing he did as a governor, RomneyCare, is taboo to even mention as an accomplishment. So all your left with is a rich guy in a nice suit, with no concrete plans or opinions shouting "I want to be president, don't you little people worry your pretty selves about what I would do as president, just vote for me" I just don't understand how you can support someone who refuses to give actual detail as to what he would do as president.....

I cannot understand why we would elect a self proclaimed enemy of our government, otherwise known as the American people, to head our government.

I'll always take a convincing ideology of liberty clumsily delivered over a destructive ideology of entitlement attractively delivered.

"...Romney uses...speak...".

I'm waiting for the retroactive version of Romney speak.

"He is truly a great man and clearly the most qualified candidate ever to seek the presidency. He will be a great president of the United States."

Ummmm... I don't think so. There are far more qualified people out there to be President than Mitt Romney. The problem is that in politics of this day and age, fewer and fewer people want to have their names dragged through the mud or play the kind of game that politics has become. Therefore, we don't get the most qualified individuals running. And before you jump all over me about criticizing Romney, I would make the same argument about President Obama. Neither one is the BEST choice for the United States.

Great President? Like Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Reagan? Great presidents don't come along all that often. Most are average to good. Even President Obama is just average (and before you start flinging comments like "worst ever," truly consider history and names like Buchanan, Hoover, Tyler, Harding or even Nixon). Romney may be average to good, but that also points back to the qualification issue (see above).

The conscience of 'peoople of faith' can take us to some pretty weird, and even ugly, places. We need to be able to violate said conscience, if that's what it takes to rise above it.

Romney's statement that the Palestinians culture is the reason for their poverty, can be extended with little imagination to here in the US. Why are southern states more poor than the northern states? Is there something innate in Southern culture to lead them to their poverty?

All I know is that republicans have been hammering Obama for years because 1 of the 2 Churchill busts were returned to the British consulate.

That was supposed to be a huge slap in the face to the British yet Romney gets a pass for blatent criticism of Olympic security that should have been done in private if at all.

Good job Romeny, advertising weakness in Olympic security while it's going on and inciting turmoil in Israel within a few days. Does the man have no sense at all?

There have indeed been few good presidents since the likes of Washington, Jefferson, John Adams, Madison and Jackson. These two men (Obama and Romney) are poor material. Ron Paul would be great. Oh, if only!!

What a perfect reason not to vote for Mitt, who seeks entitement for the wealthy to the detriment of everyone else. He is the LAST person we need in the White House and the Presidency.
