Not at all. What I do consider Romney to be is an energetic and connected political operative who lives for positive press and 'leadership' through reaching across to the other side. While 'Present' Obama is lazy, incompetent, and reactionary with little real political connections and the inability to provide leadership.
Since my major concern is the liberal policies being passed, not who's the biggest Marxist, I would literally vote for anyone other than Mitt Romney. I consider him to be a far greater threat to me and my beliefs than Obama ever will be.
I held my nose for the last time with McCain.
I echo your opinion and I can only hope more people feel the same if we ever want to truly challenge the GOP status quo and not fall for their “but look! Obama!” tricks...
That being said, how would you feel if Governor Nikki Halely or Senator Marco Rubio — two supposedly “real” conservatives were Romney’s runningmate?
