10 Reasons Why Mitt Romney Would Make A Good President
Mitt Romney holds his own with Rick Santorum
His charismatic ways when appearing in public. Notice that big, wide smile of his? This is one thing our nation's leader needs is a confident smile. A confident smile says, "I know what I'm doing," to the doubters who think Romney would not make a good leader. And his smile also says to the negative world around us, "Let's be peaceful, but do not be fooled in thinking that niceness is a sign of weakness." I like that in a president.
Mitt Romney is an all-American guy. See the American flag in the background? This, him not being ashamed to pose with our flag, is another strong reason that foreign countries would respect him as President of the United States. Romney "looks" the part of a president. Smooth. Polished. Easy to approach from the elite to the lowest. Mitt can 'talk the talk,' and with the right supporters, he can 'walk the walk.' I like his hairstyle too.
Romney can be serious if need be. Behind that Crest toothpaste smile, is the face of a serious candidate who wants to run our country. Romney can also count. His expertise in numbers will go a long way when he is faced with balancing our budget and other monumental tasks that accompany the Office of The President. Good with mathematics is a plus for Mitt. Now if he didn't know diddlie about numbers, he might embarrass himself in a State of The Union Message. But that is a useless worry. Mitt is a numbers man.
Mitt Romney knows how to dress for success. He is never seen in public or private unless he is dressed 'to the nines' with tailored-suits. Nice shirts. Colorful ties. I think that the adage, "image is everything," should apply to our president. Now let's be serious. Would you, or any of our foreign country allies trust a president that dressed in cargo pants, sweat shirt with tour dates of Cold Play on the back, and sandals? I think not. I concede that wearing a suit and tie all day can be rather discomforting, but that's a solid rule of society. Dressing to impress. And inspiring a hit song by ZZ Top, "Sharp Dressed Man," from the 80's. Wonder if ZZ Top would play for his inaugural party?
Mitt Romney can talk. With the best orators in the land. Whether it is on Face The Nation or Meet The Press. Or on some corner in Chicago, Romney can talk fluently about economic. Military. Social. And educational facts. And I have noticed that he seldom uses, "uhh," or "now let me see," to stall for time as he thinks up an answer to a question. Being able to talk professionally is a plus for an American president. I give Mitt points for his talking abilities. And Mitt can read too.
His sharp sense of humor. When asked by Newt Gingrich about his tax returns, Mitt smiled and said, "I will release them Tuesday," and moved on stunning Newt with his comedic comeback. Any president of our country needs a good sense of humor. And be able to laugh at himself. Former president, John F. Kennedy scored huge ratings with his comment on the launching of a NASA rocket, "there goes the payroll," when he was to say, "payload." This fau pax got lots of laughs from the crowd. Mitt will not be a stranger to laughter.
Mitt's big hands. Although and strictly in my opinion, Romney would make a great juggler for any circus, his big hands are a sign that he is a worker. Confident. Can tackle political or social problems in our country. I like that in a president. I've always said, "never trust a president or any politician who doesn't show his hands in public." But remember. Showing hands and talking with hands is a world apart. Mitt doesn't talk with his hands. And I like that.
when Mitt Romney is right. He is right. In several question and answer sessions across our country, some political reporters have asked him some tough questions, only to their chagrin, Mitt answered them like a pro. Like he was already in the Oval Office. George W. Bush was like that. Able to answer the tough questions that are on the minds of Americans. In this photo, Mitt is driving home a point on how he would balance our budget. The crowd was amazed.
Mitt Romney looks people (and problems) straight in the eye. Never backs down. Notice him next time he is being questioned that he seldom looks down, or off in the distance, two signals that he is not sure of himself. Mitt knows the score. He's on top of his game. You can trust a man (or woman) who makes fast eye-contact and talks to you like you are a human. That's Mitt.
Mitt Romney is always smiling. Happy. Upbeat. I appreciate that in a president. Don't you? I had much rather have a smiling. Laughing. Even joking president than a 'doom-and-gloom' leader who seldom smiles or laughs. Notice the other Republican presidential candidates--see how less they laugh or joke? The Office of President is a serious job, but not all of the time. I think that our atmosphere in our country is set by whatever attitude our Commander In Chief shows. If he's happy, then we can be happy. See what Im getting at?
ladies and gentlemen of the free world, this is NOT. I repeat NOT, a political endorsement for presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
The truth is, I was sitting around my house on Monday, January 23, and began to think of why Mitt Romney, of all the Republican presidential candidates, would make a good leader for the United States.
These are my opinions. My views. I share these of my own accord. I have not taken or received any material gifts. Monies. Or favors from Romney, or any of his opponents for writing this hub.
See if your views match mine. Enjoy.
