And here I thought this article was going to be about the real Mitt Romney;

the Blue Dog Rockefeller NorthWest Republican,
Who compromised with Democrats to get things done,
Who stood by Social Justice,
Who promised to always support a woman's right to Choose,
Who signed Gay-Marriage in Massachucetts into law,
Who restricted assaut-type rifles,
Who agrees with Pres. Obama's "miserable" and "failed" Foreign Policies - 12 times.

The OLD Mitt Romney - before the radical Tea-Party Frankenstein Morphed him into
the most "severely Conservative" Republican they could dress him up as?

...instead, this article cherry-picked and selected ONLY Mitt Romney's "Compassionate" Bleeding Heartisms.
[Deep down, he really is a Bleeding Heart Liberal...and you ALL know it!]]

Sounds like a nice guy. I still don't want him to be President, no matter how much the Deseret News tries to convince me otherwise.

Dishonesty now counts for decency?
His deliberate misleading statements and complete reversals in what he said only days earlier, is what really bothers me about mitt.

The mafia was generally thought highly of in neighborhoods where they paid for schooling, old peoples utilities ect...

It looks like some people still want a President who sits on his hands while our embassy is under attack and then continues to lie to the American people about that attack. It looks like some people are willing to overlook the faults of a president who has looked us in the eye and lied to our face, but they can't even consider the FACT that Mitt Romney is a genuinely nice guy. They have made up their minds. No amount of evidence will ever convince them otherwise.

It is obvious that they haven't read a thing that Mitt Romney has done. All they read is the lies being spread about him by Obama's campaign. They believe Obama's lies, especially the lies that he's spreading about Romney. They expect us to believe Obama's lies. Some of us have gone to the source to find out for ourselves. That source is NOT Obama's campaign staff.

I wish I could vote for Mitt as the nice guy, liberal leaning guy he has been. But there's just no reason to when he's not willing to tell the truth - about any of it.

President Obama is a nice guy, too.

As Shawn Michaels once said, "Nice guys may not finish last, but, they sure don't finish first"

I hope that is the case on 11/6.

Mitt ust proves that republicans will vote for a liberal as long as he's republican and promises to never do it again.

I don't dislike Mitt Romney because I think he isn't a nice guy or hasn't been generous with his fellow man. That certainly doesn't mean that I agree with his policies and want him in the Oval Office. This isn't a hard concept.

There are genuine reasons to vote against him regardless of his personal philanthropy. He changes his position all the time. All. The. Time. He oscillates between moderate and "severely conservative". The ultimate approval-chasing flip-flopper. You never know where he truly stands until he gets up in front of wealthy donors when he doesn't think a camera is rolling. His economic plan is vague. He can't single-handedly do much to change the economy, but promises he can. Republicans have no health care solutions. He wants to increase military spending and gut the rest of the federal government even though this will not close the annual deficit. He has no foreign policy experience and according to the 3rd debate, agrees with Obama on most of those issues anyway. And a republican president of any flavor will only increase the power of dangerous conservative extremists in Congress.

So where has the real Mitt been throughout the campaign? Multiple personalities? Multiple ideas? Multiple flips and flops?

Will the REAL Mitt please stand up?

"It looks like some people still want a President who sits on his hands while our embassy is under attack and then continues to lie to the American people about that attack. "

I prefer my Presidents to care about fact gathering and not making rash decisions. Besides, our alternative is the guy who played politics with fresh corpses by criticizing our embassy for a "response" to an attack that was actually a statement made before the attack. Point out Obama shortcomings all you want but they don't mean much if the other guy is worse.

"they can't even consider the FACT that Mitt Romney is a genuinely nice guy."

Him being a nice guy doesn't change the fact that I strongly disagree with the policies pushed by him (when he's not faking a moderate stance) and the Republican party (which he would not oppose one iota, that's why Ryan is his VP).

To "atl134" you said that you " prefer my Presidents to care about fact gathering and not making rash decisions." if that is the case, you must hate Obama.

In the case of Trevon Martin and the Harvard Professor, Obama made rash decisions, and blamed innocent people. He blamed the policeman, who it turned out was doing his job 100% correct, and he blamed George Zimmerman for defending himself.

He constantly makes the wrong choices when he has to make significant decisions. Why would you want to continue to support somebody who sends guns to the drug cartels and Al Qaeda?
