When he got the nomination I came to the conclusion that Romney was the one who could have done the job best - all his experience with business, having been in government, etc. He had an exceptional track record in business.
Newt would never have been elected although he would have fought back better IMO. Santorum too whiney or something. I sent $ to Newt and Herman Cain - and although Herman was a good idea and had interesting ideas in reality was he prepared to do the job? I would have done anything for Sarah but she was going against the corruption establishment of both parties ...disgusting that they made sure she wouldn’t run.
Which bring me to this. Seems that the powers that be - a group that I imagine doesn’t care that much about which party is in power - are making sure their gravy trains are not disrupted. The rest is a little play to make We The People think we actually have an effect on the whole rotten system.
My one question is - are they really ok with Obama essentially turning us into a communist system??? Or is Obama’s refusal to eliminate loopholes in the tax system something they required to get around the charade of taxing the “rich”?
Newt has something that Romney doesn’t, Newt could speak from the heart and knows how to change things and to fight, he very well may have totally reshaped both campaigns, and the national dialogue, Obama’s image, invigorated the race and defeated Obama.
Romney was having to run against his own internal politics and beliefs, he was running against a man that he largely agreed with.
Romney has fluxuated between the two parties during his life, he only settled on republican, for political expediency.
