"We have a big election, and we want a president who will actually bring big changes. And I will and he won't." *** Not sure those promises of big big changes are good news unless you have utter confidence in Willard. After all, the Devil you know is more reliable than the Devil you don't.
I want none of the "changes" he's proposed. Not one of them. Romney would take the country back a decade, devastate the middle class, and make sure that tens of millions of Americans have no health insurance. His tax plans would transfer even more wealth to the rich and deregulating an already out of control financial industry would lead to even more wealth concentrated at the top. I'd be embarrassed to have him anywhere near a foreign county as he's proven himself to be utterly tone-deaf diplomatically. His Supreme Court appointees would damage the country for decades to come as decades of human rights rulings would be overturned. As I've come to "know" Romney, I've disliked him more by the day and genuinely see him as wholly lacking any integrity or character.
There's a substantial portion of the republican party that wants the government out of their pockets but wants it in people's bedrooms and in the rooms of women's health clinics. When they say "less government" they mean less government applied to their own finances but they go on to say how the government should be applied more to birth control, rape, incest, abortion, gay relationships. These are the same type of guys who conducted the Salem witch trials.
Romney's crony was going through a divorce, so Romney helped him by creating a special class of stock for his wife that was undervalued. That way his wife got less in the divorce settlement. It shows that Romney believes it's OK for the rich to bend the rules for their own benefit, even if someone gets hurt in the process. President Obama, who wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth, believes that the rich shouldn't be allowed to game the system for their benefit at the expense of the less wealthy.
It really doesn't matter what Romney says on any given day. If elected he is just a rubber stamp for the social agenda the Tea Party is pushing anyways.
