"PRE-BUTTAL" SPEECH BY ROMNEY.
Is it to create confusion or what?
Former Gov. Mitt Romney's "pre-buttal" speech to several high-profile CEOs of Fortune 500 companies yesterday, is no wonder. It is a political strategy froth with confusion.
It is a prelude to criss cross the path of the Democratic Party, and its aim to retain the White House; and he will continue in that mode till November 6th, presidential election day of 2012.
He can second guess President Barack Obama as much as he wants, because he himself has nothing actually to defend, in the form of a recent or noticeable record; while the president has a whole lot on his plate as he handles his daily Oval Office routine, dealing with a myriad of issues.
It is rather a wonder that Obama can perform his duties as president and go on the campaign trail as the same time, doing fund raising and answering questions from the media and numerous other sources.
He, Obama, has the United States Congress on his back, plus attending to Russia supplying arms to Syria, and speaking with his Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on strategies for the Far East, and to find a way for supplies to get to U.S. forces in Afghanistan, ......etc. etc. etc.
On the other hand, Romney has got so much time on his hands, and he can use that to "outperform" Obama, but nobody has seen any sign of that, except that he is always focusing on his mantra of "23 million Americans that are out of work or stopped looking for work or underemployed. That is a compelling and a sad statistic. These are real people.”
That is the only ball he is carrying, and therefore he and his camp can criticize the president as much as they want. However, what he (Romney) is failing to see is that Americans are noticing that, like a leopard, all he is doing is making the attempt to change his spots.
He will speak from his position as a consummate business executive today, and then turn around to sound like some middle class person the next. He calls the middle class "real people" instead of "ordinary people". In fact, every person is real; isn't it?
It does not occur to him that there is a difference between the two expressions. He also believes that the more he continues to throw dust in the air, the more his mantra will resonate with voters, who are mainly middle class.
Romney's ambition is an open book; which is that he wants to carve a name for himself in American history as being a president at one time, and nothing else. He has been going after the post for the past six years or so.
In that he has dabbled in the private equity business world to become wealthy, beyond a reasonable expectation from any person's point of view, and there is no tangible reason for him to fight over the Republican Party nomination with true conservatives like Rick Santorum or Michele Bachmann or Newt Gingrich.
However, he has done it; and now he can see his way clear to go for the big "prize", the presidency of the U.S., just for the history books; with his target not actually being Obama, but rather the American people.
If only he can bamboozle them with his rich and affluent business background, he will get them to put him where he wants to be in life; hence, the daunting task of his to oust Obama, who has a magnificent National security record, and an unblemished slate of protecting Americans from organizations like Al Qaeda and such. No major attack on the U.S. has taken place during his watch.
His honest and stoic devotion, as well as his sworn diligence to deal with the nation's fiscal problems that have been handed down by a previous Republican administration after the 2008 election, are there for everyone to see.
Nobody is saying that Obama is not likely to have a challenger to his claim for the highest office in the land, but it must not be someone, whom researchers are doubtful of his professed achievements as governor of Massachusetts, as well as a renowned businessman.
He has used tax loopholes to gain wealth; and his financial holdings are scattered around the world, instead of them being here in America to help the same, poor economy that he says the has a remedy for.
If only former president Bill Clinton and James Carville will leave Obama alone to take care of Romney, many Americans will be happy. They (Clinton and Carville) can deal with the Republicans directly their way, to give them a resounding defeat as before; just to avoid any semblance of confusion in the Democratic camp.
