40 Points That Prove That Barack Obama And Mitt Romney Are Essentially The Same Candidate
activistpost.com ^ | August 16, 2012 | Michael Snyder

Posted on 08/19/2012 7:06:50 PM PDT by grundle

What a depressing choice the American people are being presented with this year. We are at a point in our history where we desperately need a change of direction in the White House, and we are guaranteed that we are not going to get it. The Democrats are running the worst president in American history, and the Republicans are running a guy who is almost a carbon copy of him.

The fact that about half the country is still supporting Barack Obama shows how incredibly stupid and corrupt the American people have become. No American should have ever cast a single vote for Barack Obama for any political office under any circumstances.

Obama should never have even been the assistant superintendent in charge of janitorial supplies, much less the president of the United States.

The truth is that Barack Obama has done such a horrible job that he should immediately resign along with his entire cabinet. But instead of giving us a clear choice, the Republicans nominated the Republican that was running that was most similar to Barack Obama. In fact, I don't think we have ever had two candidates for president that are so similar. Yes, there are a few minor differences between them, but the truth is that we are heading into Obama's second term no matter which one of them gets elected. The mainstream media makes it sound like Obama and Romney are bitter ideological rivals but that is a giant lie. Yeah, they are slinging lots of mud at each other, but they both play for the same team and the losers are going to be the American people.

Republicans are being told that they have "no choice" but to vote for Romney because otherwise they will get another four years of Obama.

This "lesser of two evils" theme comes out every four years. We are told that we "must" vote for a horrible candidate because the other guy is even worse.

Well, millions of Americans are getting sick of this routine. Perhaps that is why it is being projected that as many as 90 million Americans of voting age will not vote this year.

Yes, Barack Obama has been so horrible as president that it is hard to put it into words.

But Mitt Romney would be just like Barack Obama.

Those that are dreaming of a major change in direction if Romney is elected are going to be bitterly, bitterly disappointed.

The following are 40 ways that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are essentially the same candidate....

1. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported TARP.

2. Mitt Romney supported Barack Obama's "economic stimulus" packages.

3. Mitt Romney says that Barack Obama's bailout of the auto industry was actually his idea.

4. Neither candidate supports immediately balancing the federal budget.

5. They both believe in big government and they both have a track record of being big spenders while in office.

6. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both fully support the Federal Reserve.

7. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are both on record as saying that the president should not question the "independence" of the Federal Reserve.

8. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have both said that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke did a good job during the last financial crisis.

9. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both felt that Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke deserved to be renominated to a second term.

10. Both candidates oppose a full audit of the Federal Reserve.

11. Both candidates are on record as saying that U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has done a good job.

12. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have both been big promoters of universal health care.

13. Mitt Romney was the one who developed the plan that Obamacare was later based upon.

14. Wall Street absolutely showers both candidates with campaign contributions.

15. Neither candidate wants to eliminate the income tax or the IRS.

16. Both candidates want to keep personal income tax rates at the exact same levels for the vast majority of Americans.

17. Both candidates are "open" to the idea of imposing a Value Added Tax on the American people.

18. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both believe that the TSA is doing a great job.

19. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported the NDAA.

20. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both supported the renewal of the USA PATRIOT Act.

21. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both believe that the federal government should be able to indefinitely detain American citizens that are considered to be terrorists.

22. Both candidates believe that American citizens suspected of being terrorists can be killed by the president without a trial.

23. Barack Obama has not closed Guantanamo Bay like he promised to do, and Mitt Romney actually wants to double the number of prisoners held there.

24. Both candidates support the practice of "extraordinary rendition".

25. They both support the job-killing "free trade" agenda of the global elite.

26. They both accuse each other of shipping jobs out of the country and both of them are right.

27. Both candidates are extremely soft on illegal immigration.

28. Neither candidate has any military experience. This is the first time that this has happened in a U.S. election since 1944.

29. Both candidates earned a degree from Harvard University.

30. They both believe in the theory of man-made global warming.

31. Mitt Romney has said that he will support a "cap and trade" carbon tax scheme (like the one Barack Obama wants) as long as the entire globe goes along with it.

32. Both candidates have a very long record of supporting strict gun control measures.

33. Both candidates have been pro-abortion most of their careers. Mitt Romney's "conversion" to the pro-life cause has been questioned by many. In fact, Mitt Romney has made millions on Bain Capital's investment in a company called "Stericycle" that incinerates aborted babies collected from family planning clinics.

34. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both believe that the Boy Scout ban on openly gay troop leaders is wrong.

35. They both believe that a "two state solution" will bring lasting peace between the Palestinians and Israel.

36. Both candidates have a history of nominating extremely liberal judges.

37. Like Barack Obama, Mitt Romney also plans to add "signing statements" to bills when he signs them into law.

38. They both have a horrible record when it comes to job creation.

39. Both candidates believe that the president has the power to take the country to war without getting the approval of the U.S. Congress.

40. Both candidates plan to continue running up more government debt even though the U.S. government is already 16 trillion dollars in debt.

As you put it; Romney is almost obama; but in the word almost lies the difference - there is an extremely wide chasm in that six letter word. I remember the same type of posts in 2007-2008. Obama and the follow on with a one party government is where your logic leads. There is no vote that counts this year except one for Romney and any GOP that is running. We must recapture the senate AND the Presidency to win - one will not do. Romney is not Evil - the definition of EVIL is anyone who aides in the reelection of the O.

Bingo.

Work to replace Romney after he’s elected, if he doesn’t work out.

But 100% he is better than Obama.

And ways they are different:

Romney has an American perspective, Obama - not so much.
Romney is pro-life, Obama - not so much.
Romney has had real jobs in his life, Obama - not so much.
Romney understands the free market, Obama - not so much.
Romney has balanced budgets, Obama - not so much.
Romney has worked well with those he disagrees with, Obama - not so much.

Well, you get the idea.

Granting all your objections you cannot deny that Romney is a Natural Born Citizen and Obama is NOT. Hence, we take the candidate who is constitutionally qualified to be President.

The Disaster fails the very first test “No person except a Natural Born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of the Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of the President;...”

Romney is eligible.

____________________________

Romney has been an immoral pro-abortionist for 40 years..

He has run for office boasting that he would never overturn Roe V Wade...

He upheld Roe V Wade as “the law of the land” eventhough it is unConstitutional...

and that he would “protect and sustain” a woman’s right to murdeer her unborn baby...

Thats not pro-life...

that’s advocating murder...

It was the Mass Supreme Court that issued the order. Romney chose not to disobey it.

The MA Supreme Court merely questioned the validity of the MA marriage law.

Romney CHOSE to go far beyond anything that the court had decreed...and since when do the Judicial and Executive branches have the power to Legislate?

Romney CHOSE not only to exceed the court's self-inflated "mandate" but to overthrow the very principle of our constitutional government.

I call that TREASON.

Sorry, this is a bunch of purest dementia.

The overwhelming difference is that Romney is fundamentally pro-America and will listen to the electorate where 0bama will continue to pursue his agenda of destruction.

Ignore the facts at your peril.

This week, one of the leading pro-life groups for Catholics made the decision to put its imprimatur on the presidential ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, saying it is the right vote for pro-lifers.

On the heels of Romney’s picking a pro-life running mate in Rep. Paul Ryan, Brian Burch of Catholic Vote told his supporters, “Mitt Romney made his choice. Today we are making ours.”

“CatholicVote.org is proud to announce that we are enthusiastically endorsing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan in the 2012 presidential race,” Burch said.

“The decision to endorse Romney for President was made after Governor Romney announced Saturday that he had selected Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate,” Burch continued. “Congressman Ryan is a superb choice. He is a committed Catholic and a candidate willing to engage in the much-needed debate about the role of government in our society – including the moral dimensions of our ballooning federal government. Paul Ryan actually uses the word ‘subsidiarity’ and can explain it.”

“Paul Ryan is also strongly pro-life. He has a 100% rating from the National Right to Life Committee,” Burch added. “Perhaps most importantly — Paul Ryan also clearly understands the dangers posed by the HHS mandate, and he will fight as hard as anyone to make sure it is eliminated.”

“Many people are heralding the selection of Ryan because of what he represents, and the seriousness that he will inject into the campaign. But the choice of Ryan also tells us something significant about Mitt Romney too: Paul Ryan is the man Mitt Romney believes is best suited to assume the responsibilities of President should that become necessary,” Burch added. “Of all the qualified choices available to him, Mitt Romney chose a dedicated pro-life Catholic to help him turn the country around. While some predicted Romney would select a “safe” running mate, the former Massachusetts governor went bold. America cannot afford to tiptoe anymore around the critical issues facing our country. With entitlement programs set to go bankrupt, our economy floundering, and the moral fabric of our nation disintegrating, we need leaders willing to take bold risks to get us back on track. And in his first major decision, Mitt Romney delivered. Big time.”
