THE REPUBLICANS & THE VOTERS.
Which of them should win?
How could Mitt Romney win anything in the United States, when he has decimated industries and companies with his actions at Bain Capital; having off-shore financial holdings and Swiss Accounts, to boot? No real patriot would ever do that.
He has used the loopholes in the nation's tax code to pay lesser taxes than his own employees; and he has no regrets for wanting the government to bail out the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. On one hand, he kept that (bailout) a secret, while on the other hand claiming that he had single handedly managed the games to become successful.
"Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, appealing to tea party and Christian groups in Ohio on Saturday, criticized rival Mitt Romney for seeking a “bailout” for the 2002 Winter Olympics and complaining about congressional earmarks." (Newsmax.com: 5/23/12).
That was a quote from Rick Santorum, attacking Romney, while he was running alongside him in the Republican Party nomination race, from which he (Santorum) dropped out just recently.
His own rivals in that race have totally condemned the presumptive Republican candidate, Mitt Romney, for the forthcoming presidential election, from their own mouths; but his campaign was able to hold up against the onslaught, due to the fact that he has invested huge sums of his own money in himself, and much more from his vast family fortune, to enable him to carry on on the campaign trail.
Political contributions from Wall Street, and the super PACs that were canvassing for more funds to showcase Romney have succeeded even beyond their own expectation; as millions of dollars continue to pour in from nefarious sources at home and abroad.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce was planning to spend more than $50 million dollars in the 2012 presidential campaign; and you should guess where all that money would go. To Romney, of course; and many people were saying that was just for starters.
He was targeting the lousy credit risk that resulted from the S&P downgrade of the U.S., caused by the Congressional Republicans unpatriotic handling of the debt ceiling and deficit reduction talks roughly a year ago, as being a failure of the present government; and he was focusing on the economy itself as he would be the person to save it from farther disaster with his business acumen.
However, if there was any slight indication that he was the magical job creator and financial guru he claimed to be, people should examine his record as governor of the State of Massachusetts.
The unemployment rate there had doubled from Jan. 2001 to the same month in 2003; and job creation, something that he was basing his claims to the presidency of the U.S. on, was poor, if not completely dismal.
Besides, if he was the super expert in business management as he wanted the country to believe, why did he have a whole slew of factory and company closings and the laying off of hundreds of workers behind him?
The Republicans had created the mess that the country was in today; and they would never talk about that. Instead, they were homing in on the notion that Americans were very forgetful and forgiving, and that they would somehow vote for a candidate, who lacked the confidence of his own party colleagues.
Newt Gingrich said Romney was not trustworthy; and as for Santorum, he still hated Romney.
So, it was now up to the voters to decide whether Romney should be the right person to lead the U.S. into a world in which background check was essential for countries to enter into high profile agreements, and trust would be a vital commodity in almost all of the negotiations; and if so, should he be the one to be chosen to lead America?
The Republicans would do anything to get to the White House again, in spite of an abysmal record only four years ago; but should "We the people" allow them?
