Yes, and my commonsense stems from the fact that, once we nominate yet another moderate guy, we will lose.
Like in 2008.
Those years bring back such great memories, don’t they? Ahh….
Fact of the matter is, the people supporting Romney are supporting him on bogus reasons. As Daniel Mitchell from Townhall.com just recently wrote, Romney’s problems lie deeper than stupid gaffes by his ridiculous campaign staff or treatment of his family’s dog in 1983. For those who missed the memo on the story, here’s a snippet from Wikipedia:
Seamus was enclosed in a carrier on the roof of the Romney family’s station wagon. Sometime during the trip, the dog became afflicted with diarrhea, causing excrement to flow down the windows of the car. Romney stopped at a gas station to wash Seamus and the car, put Seamus back in his carrier, and continued the twelve-hour trip to Ontario.
The following links are all from Daniel Mitchell, outlining Romney’s failures on:
- Value Added Tax
- (Statist) Romneycare – Although, to be fair, I’m sure the Supreme Court will uphold Obamacare in a complete political move without regard for the Constitutionality of the law
- Social Security
- Ethanol Subsidies (Santorum has said that he will BAN all energy and most agricultural subsidies. It’s right here on his website)
- Keynesian economics (Santorum has opposed all bailouts, including TARP. Romney supported the Wall St. Bailout but refused Detroit a bailout. Hypocrisy?)
- Fighting budget and debt problems
- Indexing the minimum wage with inflation (FYI, this is a liberal position)
Pretty long list, huh?
Wait, it gets better. My list here details Romney’s flaws on a range of issues, including abortion, gun rights, healthcare, and more.
Here‘s a letter written last year to Mitt Romney from a member of Gun Owners of America. It’s not pro-Mitt. Here are the GOA ratings for each candidate in the race – Romney has the lowest grade, a D minus.
Don’t worry though, Mitt’s got a lot of endorsements from RINOs, like Huntsman, Trump, and John McCain. How reassuring.
Of course, it’s not as though the Obama team is sitting on a swath of material to attack Mitt Romney with. Oh, that’s right! They do! They’ve already practically got their campaign ads ready.
I’m rather unsure as to why anyone would want to nominate a candidate that’s been attacked for months. It’s like creating a product for sale while knowing that your rival companies already know its technical flaws, weak points, and extensively covered-up problems.
Anyways, that’s why I WON’T get an Instalanche. I understand the fact that nominating a moderate will make us lose more than some other GOP folks – namely, the establishment moderates, RINOs, and the disillusioned. If you honestly think that most average voters would pick Mitt Romney over Barack Obama, you’re literally in la-la land.
But, I guess I’m just a ridiculous person who should just sell out his values and commonsense and just start supporting Romney. After all, shouldn’t everyone be eager to see a war of teleprompters, since the war on teleprompters will end?
