Why Romney Shouldn’t be President

November 26, 2011

Watching Romney explain why he used deceit in his latest add really brought home why Romney really shouldn’t be our next President.

If you missed it Romney takes a quote from a Obama 2008 speech in New Hampshire where he quotes John McCain saying “If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose”. But through the slight of editing it would appear this is Obama making a direct statement.

I felt a little dirty after listening to Romney’s rehearsed explanation of why this deceit was not really deceit. And after listening to Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC point out that the press will not call him our for a bold face lie, it occurred to me how bad it would be to have Romney as President, one with no worldly morals and no one to put him in check.

There was a time when politicians served while still running the family farm. And as politics has evolved into a way to make people rich, our system is becoming increasingly dysfunctional and truly out of touch with the needs of the common person. And Romney is really the worst of the worst. He wants to be President for what? For who (thank you Ricky Watters)?

Do you see passion for the country? He talks a good story about loving this country, but where does he demonstrate this? Show me the money – er I mean an example. What drives this guy to take on the hardest job in the world at one of the most difficult times in our worlds history? Is it for money? I don’t think so. Glory? Power? Ego?

Now we’re getting somewhere. Mr. Romney is not loved by anyone, or any group. He is like the lone wolf out to get a kill for all it’s personal rewards and benefits. And in a time when even passionate politicians get sucked into this ugly partisan world we live in, what will happen when we get a President who has nothing in it except for personal glory?

I hope we don’t get a chance to find out.
