As someone who has called Romney some pretty vile names I have to wonder why this very important fact can't even be discussed here. It seems all discussion of Romney is verbotten (sp)--he's the enemy, and any DISCUSSION of who he is beyond anti-Mormon stuff is out of the question.
I seem to recall a website where everyone heaped praise on Sarah Palin for starting a business and meeting a payroll. I seem to recall a website where Obama was bashed relentlessly for living only in the world of academia and government/'community leadership.'
I seem to recall a website where we wanted Washington insiders out, and people who were actual businessmen were in, and where capitalism was championed--real capitalism, not government payouts, but where failing companies were reorganized and all the realities (some not so comfortable) that entailed.
I keep looking for that website, where having money wasn't a crime particularly when the rich were giving much of their money to charity (in Romney's case, this includes many non-Mormon causes). That same site praised Sarah Palin for her devotion to her husband and kids through good times and bad.
Not sure what happened to that site. I keep finding this other one, where a serial philanderer and do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do Big Government guy who took money from the hated Fannie Mae when he wasn't in government or teaching (not that there's anything wrong with either, but one needs more varied experience) is being toasted as a conservative icon.
I think it’s down to if we aren’t going to have a candidate who is completely for us, at least it’s fun to cheer for one who is so good at being against them. This is a strange election, good reason to oppose any one of them but we can’t, we have to pick one and support them, this is all there will be now.
Romney is the enemy, after fighting him for so many years it gets tiresome to listen to his cult people and having to repeat ourselves.
