Which Mitt?The primary Mitt?orThe debate
Mitt?Voters get a new Mitt everyday...Only 28 more
Mitt's to go...Marvelous.
Okay.But who is he?Really?Will the REAL Mitt
please stand up?
Newt Gingrich said that Mitt Romney would say anything to get nominated. Both
he and Rick Santorum wanted Romney's conservative credentials examined, and
Romney promised that he was not just "conservative" but he was
"severely conservative". Of course, neither Gingrich nor Santorum
believe him, yet Romney was able to secure the presidential nomination for the
Republican Party and he adopted all the Tea Party positions demanded of him.Now with the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney has started to
re-position himself fot the general election after many months of dropping poll
numbers and what looked like the end of the Republican Party. The switch seemed
to take and Romney began to pull ahead of Barack Obama in the polls. The
Democrats cried foul; Romney was now not telling the truth. However, perhaps Gingrich and Santorum were right and Romney wasn't
telling the truth to the extreme members of his own party. This is a real
conundrum for both sides. Is Mitt Romney "severely conservative" as he
told Republican voters during the primary or is he a "Massachuetts
moderate" as we see today?Obviously, Romney is many things to
A few truths:Mitt is a political moderate. He is not a partisan
politician. He will not rescind or substantially change ObamaCare. He will be
aligned with the LDS stand on abortion (none except for health of mother,
incest, rape). He will not lead a comprehensive immigration policy, but would
beef up border security. He may increase military spending. He is not likely
to raise taxes on the wealthy. But he will soon find that increased military
spending along with no new taxes will increase the annual deficit along with the
National Debt.In general, he does not have an inclination to lead in
a partisan fashion. He does have an inclination to work with both parties to
reach compromise.As a very wealthy person (in top 1% of American
income), he does not know much about how lower and middle class Americans live.
To Mad Hatter 12:48 a.m. Oct. 11, 2012 Romney is whatever he thinks
it will take to get people to vote for him. Don't like what he just said?
Wait 5 minutes and he'll say the exact opposite. He doesn't care
about people; he just cares about getting elected. He's all things to all
people, and no truth in anythng he says or does.
