IMHO the time may be approaching for FR to adopt a (slightly) less anti-Romney position.
It appears the the amazingly effective, and reasonable opposition to Romney on this site, is driving some FReepers to have over-compensated.
Romney is a lot of things. A smug, underhanded mudslinging slimeball.
But he’s not worse than Obama.
That’s just not the case.
—But hes not worse than Obama.
Thats just not the case.—
Here is how I think he may be worse: He wears the R rather than the D,is very liberal, and is competent. That last one is like a multiplier. He could accomplish things just as bad as Obama has attempted, but ONLY attempted.
And just as Obama ran on unspecified “hope and change”, Romney has a track record of saying whatever it takes to get elected and then doing whatever is politically expedient. You can’t trust a word that comes out of his mouth - Just like Obama.
Obama has tried to rule from the left, alienating the right and even some of the middle. The effect has almost been an overcompensation in some ways. Romney would pull us to the left from the middle. The effect would be for the nation to go farther left than Obama could ever have aspired to accomplish.
And it would be a republican doing it.
