It never ceases to amaze me how a person who has decided to support a candidate all too often arrives at a point where FACTS are meaningless to them. Such is true with those who support this Romney character. There has been one example after another that proves that Mitt Romney isn’t even a Republican much less a conservative and that he has repeatedly lied about his positions. Yet, well meaning Republicans still support this flip-flopping liar. Here is yet another article that shows that Mitt Romney is the single worse candidate the GOP field has today.
David Lightman of the McClatchy Newspaper chain asks this question: Exactly how Reaganesque is Romney? And the answer is a decided NOT AT ALL.
A few excerpts of this article:
“I take inspiration from the strength Ronald Reagan talked about,” Romney said. “It was his view that the right way to overcome challenges was for the country to strengthen itself.”
Yet Romney wasn’t always such a Reagan fan.
In 1994, when he ran for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts, he said, “I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.”
Romney spent years in the state registered as “unenrolled,” or unaffiliated with a political party, and in 1992 he voted for former Sen. Paul Tsongas, a liberal Democrat, in the Massachusetts Democratic presidential primary.
Romney replied: “Look, I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush. My positions don’t talk about the things you suggest they talk about. This isn’t a political issue.”
Romney has lied about being a hunter, he has lied about his not supporting the baby killers at Planned Parenthood, he even lied about his father marching with Martin Luther King, Jr. He led as Governor of Massachusetts as a center left executive yet now claims that he is a conservative.
Yet, all these flip-flops, all these lies and his supporters stick their fingers in their ears and scream “LA LA LA” at the top of their voices. So, here is the thing. Romney is not Reagan, he is far more like Clinton. Because during the first Clinton run lie after lie was revealed and his supporters simply refused to take stock of their man. They voted for him despite the lies, the rapes, all his past troubles were ignored.
Mitt Romney is Bill Clinton without the sex crimes.
