Why No One Should Vote For Mitt Romney, Not Even Mitt Romney!
© 2012 VVeasey Publishing
If you look in the dictionary under two-faced chameleon there will be two pictures of Mitt Romney. One looking to the left and one looking to the right.
Someone wrote a hub about 10 reasons blacks shouldn't vote for the Democrats. Well we only need one reason why no one should vote for the Republicans... Mitt Romney.
Romney has changed his political position so many times, even he doesn't know where he stands. Romney shouldn't even vote for himself. The man is delusional, or so out of touch with reality, he thinks republican voters will vote for him no matter how many times he does and an about face or contradicts himself...hmm..maybe he's not that delusional. Many of these people have such a delusional hatred of President Obama they will probably vote for Romney anyway.
Mitt's latest about face and arguably the most crass and lowdown is he's now demanding credit for the success of the auto companies when he was originally dead set against giving them the bailout,
Romney said, "Let Detroit go bankrupt," . " IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed."
But now that General Motors and Chrysler are posting record profits, Mitt states, "I pushed the idea of a managed bankruptcy," "And finally, when that was done, and help was given, the companies got back on their feet. So I'll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry's come back."
Can you believe this guy! Is anybody with any sense going to vote for this opportunistic_______you fill in the blank.
Giving Credit To Bush For What Obama Did
But this is just par for the course for the Republicans. Remember Dick Cheney trying to give credit to Bush when Obama successfully got Bin Laden killed?
Bush failed to capture or kill Bin Laden when he was in office. When Bush was asked about his plans to capture Bin Laden or have him killed. Bush nonchalantly said "Who knows if he’s hiding in some cave or not. We haven’t heard from him in a long time. The idea of focusing on one person really indicates to me people don’t understand the scope of the mission. Terror is bigger than one person. He’s just a person who’s been marginalized. … I don’t know where he is. I really just don’t spend that much time on him, to be honest with you."
He didn't spend that much time thinking about Bin Laden, but now Bush should get credit for having Bin Laden killed? I don't think so.
I think we see a pattern with these people.
The tea party conservatives, Cheney, Fox News talking heads, etc, don't want to give President Obama credit for anything that will make him look good to the American public. If they were originally for a policy or idea that Obama supports, they're now against it.
They are intentionally trying to deceive and delude the public,to keep President Obama from being re-elected. You can't trust them. You can't trust Mitt Romney. He'll say anything to get elected. Romney is the new poster boy for all of this political non-sense.
This one reason trumps 10 or 100 reasons why anybody should vote for the Republicans and definitely not for Mitt Romney.
Romney And Jobs
Update: Romney cites as his main reason for running for president is that his Bain Capital experience qualified him to be able to improve the economy and create jobs. But he cried "no fair" when his record of bankrupting companies and shipping thousands of job overseas is brought up. He only wants us to talk about the part of his Bain Capital record that he wants us to talk about. The Republican leaders, Fox news and others support this nonsense and hypocrisy.
But the truth is being revealed for all to see if they really want to see it
Here's a quote from the Washington Post
" During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission."
Romneycare And Obamacare
Amazing! But wait there more!
Romney says he going to end Obama Care If he becomes president but wouldn't cha know it. Obama Care is based on Romney Care! Mitt tries his best to deny it, but Obama used the same guy who helped Romney create Romney Care, to help him Create Obama Care! They're virtually the same plan! (Can somebody say two-faced chameleon)
Romney And Bain Capital
Romney, always insists that he left Bain capital in 1999, so he's not responsible for anything Bain capital did after that date. But a report in the Boston Globe, states that according to filings Bain capital made with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Romney was with Bain until 2002. He was the only stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president of the company. (Can somebody say two-faced lying chameleon)
7.25.12. A Romney campaign adviser told the U, K, Telegraph
“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage (read white) and he feels that the special relationship is special,” “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have”. (What!)
Is he suggesting that President Obama has to be Anglo-Saxon (read white) to appreciate our shared history with Britain? Is this openly biased, racist pandering and racial snobbery or what!
Romney's "Foreign" Policy Tour
Romney is on his so-called "foreign" policy tour, because he has no foreign policy experience, this was supposed give Mitt something to tout when he continues his campaign back in the U.S.
But boy!, oh boy!, has he F*cked up big time, this time! He questioned the readiness of Britain to host the Olympic Games! And they've fired back at Mitt with the Big Guns!
The Sun Tabloid called him "Mitt the Twit," and a "wannabe president." Ha ha ha ha! whooo!That's cold! I could've said it better myself!
The Independent, called Romney's trip, "Romney shambles" saying in addition to Romney committing a diplomatic gaffe, he did the "the cardinal sin of U.S. politics, flip-flopping" on his criticism.
Ha Ha Ha Ha...the British are doing us proud! They can see thru Romney's B.S.better than most Americans!
The Daily Telegraph said, Romney's ineptness has overshadowed his purpose for coming to London. (That ain't nothing but the truth!)
Even the conservative Daily Mail called Romney " devoid of charm, offensive and a wazzock (a foolish or annoying person). Ha ha ha. I didn't know what that was either...I had to look that one up! But it's fits! Ha ha ha ha!
In his interviews, Romney, is just so transparent and phony and seems to think he can just "charm "his way out his flip-flopping...but it ain't working! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
That a corporate raider like Mitt Romney is masquerading as the common man's politician is outrageous...but his flip flopping....Priceless!
Romney made Paul Ryan his Vice Presidential running mate!
9.11.12. The Republicans are supposed to be the party that big on the support of our military but during their convention they barely mentioned the military but the Democrats acknowledged our fighting men and women in a big way. Mitt and his pals didn't even thank or show any appreciation for the troops fighting in Afghanistan.
Mitt's' response asked about this omission, "I only regret you’re repeating it day in and day out. When you give a speech you don’t go through a laundry list, you talk about the things that you think are important and I described in my speech, my commitment to a strong military unlike the president’s decision to cut our military. And I didn’t use the word troops, I used the word military. I think they refer to the same thing".
Mitt doesn't think that acknowledging our military men and women fighting in harms way is important?
9.11.12.There was poll that asked who people thought was more responsible for getting Osama Bin Laden About 16% said Mitt Romney! Can you believe that shit?
34% said they were not sure who was more responsible for getting Bin Laden! Wow!
These fools need educating and Romney the Republican sure as hell aren't gonna do it!
9.13.12. Romney falsely accused President Obama of sympathizing with the attackers of American Embassy in Libya!
Mitt said "The Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks," (Outrageous!)
But none of that was true (surprise, surprise, surprise!).
Neither the American Embassy nor Secretary Of State Clinton offered sympathy for the attackers.
In fact, the Cairo Embassy condemned the anti-Muslim religious violence before the embassy was attacked. Secretary of State Clinton representing the Obama administration's first response to the violence, explicitly condemned the attack and the death of a State Department official.
So Romney in his eagerness to score political points against the President, jumped the gun, and didn't know what the hell he was talking about, and got a lot of justly deserved criticism from both democrats and republicans for his outrageous remarks.
9.14.12, Mitt says "I think the challenge that I'll have in the debate is that the president tends to, how shall I say it, to say things that aren't true," What! Ha ha ha ha!
Mitt never says things that aren't true or flip flops...Right?...Right!!!
Mitt's caught on tape at a private fund raiser for millionaires saying that 47% of the American voters are irresponsible, want hand-outs and see themselves as victims because they won't vote for him! He's said he's not concern about those voters. See the video below!
Ha ha ha ha! Now Romney is saying forget what he said about 47 percent of people, because he's for 100 percent of the people! (What!) Is anybody buying this? I hope not!
Now you see why I call him a two-faced chameleon?
Even more reason why no one should vote for the Republicans or Mitt Romney, not even Mitt Romney, himself
One More Reason No One Should Vote For Mitt Romney
News Alert! 11.1.2012

Tribune endorsement: Too Many Mitts
Obama has earned another term
First Published Oct 19 2012 12:13 pm • Last Updated Oct 24 2012 03:41 pm
(Nowhere has Mitt Romney’s pursuit of the presidency been more warmly welcomed or closely followed than here in Utah. The Republican nominee’s political and religious pedigrees, his adeptly bipartisan governorship of a Democratic state, and his head for business and the bottom line all inspire admiration and hope in our largely Mormon, Republican, business-friendly state.
But it was Romney’s singular role in rescuing Utah’s organization of the 2002 Olympics from a cesspool of scandal, and his oversight of the most successful Winter Games on record, that make him the Beehive State’s favorite adopted son. After all, Romney managed to save the state from ignominy, turning the extravaganza into a showcase for the matchless landscapes, volunteerism and efficiency that told the world what is best and most beautiful about Utah and its people.
In short, this is the Mitt Romney we knew, or thought we knew, as one of us.
Sadly, it is not the only Romney, as his campaign for the White House has made abundantly clear, first in his servile courtship of the tea party in order to win the nomination, and now as the party’s shape-shifting nominee. From his embrace of the party’s radical right wing, to subsequent portrayals of himself as a moderate champion of the middle class, Romney has raised the most frequently asked question of the campaign: "Who is this guy, really, and what in the world does he truly believe?"
The evidence suggests no clear answer, or at least one that would survive Romney’s next speech or sound bite. Politicians routinely tailor their words to suit an audience. Romney, though, is shameless, lavishing vastly diverse audiences with words, any words, they would trade their votes to hear.
More troubling, Romney has repeatedly refused to share specifics of his radical plan to simultaneously reduce the debt, get rid of Obamacare (or, as he now says, only part of it), make a voucher program of Medicare, slash taxes and spending, and thereby create millions of new jobs. To claim, as Romney does, that he would offset his tax and spending cuts (except for billions more for the military) by doing away with tax deductions and exemptions is utterly meaningless without identifying which and how many would get the ax. Absent those specifics, his promise of a balanced budget simply does not pencil out.
If this portrait of a Romney willing to say anything to get elected seems harsh, we need only revisit his branding of 47 percent of Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, yet feel victimized and entitled to government assistance. His job, he told a group of wealthy donors, "is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."
Where, we ask, is the pragmatic, inclusive Romney, the Massachusetts governor who left the state with a model health care plan in place, the Romney who led Utah to Olympic glory? That Romney skedaddled and is nowhere to be found.
And what of the president Romney would replace? For four years, President Barack Obama has attempted, with varying degrees of success, to pull the nation out of its worst financial meltdown since the Great Depression, a deepening crisis he inherited the day he took office.
In the first months of his presidency, Obama acted decisively to stimulate the economy. His leadership was essential to passage of the badly needed American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Though Republicans criticize the stimulus for failing to create jobs, it clearly helped stop the hemorrhaging of public sector jobs. The Utah Legislature used hundreds of millions in stimulus funds to plug holes in the state’s budget.
The president also acted wisely to bail out the auto industry, which has since come roaring back. Romney, in so many words, said the car makers should sink if they can’t swim.
Obama’s most noteworthy achievement, passage of his signature Affordable Care Act, also proved, in its timing, his greatest blunder. The set of comprehensive health insurance reforms aimed at extending health care coverage to all Americans was signed 14 months into his term after a ferocious fight in Congress that sapped the new president’s political capital and destroyed any chance for bipartisan cooperation on the shredded economy.
Obama’s foreign policy record is perhaps his strongest suit, especially compared to Romney’s bellicose posture toward Russia and China and his inflammatory rhetoric regarding Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Obama’s measured reliance on tough economic embargoes to bring Iran to heel, and his equally measured disengagement from the war in Afghanistan, are examples of a nuanced approach to international affairs. The glaring exception, still unfolding, was the administration’s failure to protect the lives of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, and to quickly come clean about it.
In considering which candidate to endorse, The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board had hoped that Romney would exhibit the same talents for organization, pragmatic problem solving and inspired leadership that he displayed here more than a decade ago. Instead, we have watched him morph into a friend of the far right, then tack toward the center with breathtaking aplomb. Through a pair of presidential debates, Romney’s domestic agenda remains bereft of detail and worthy of mistrust.
Therefore, our endorsement must go to the incumbent, a competent leader who, against tough odds, has guided the country through catastrophe and set a course that, while rocky, is pointing toward a brighter day. The president has earned a second term. Romney, in whatever guise, does not deserve a first.) The Salt Lake Tribune
The Salt Lake Tribune endorses President Obama for president.
Even more reason no one should vote for Mitt Romney, even Romney himself!
