    What does Mitt Romney actually stand for?

    Last night Mitt Romney said a "better America begins tonight." Does anyone really know what his vision for the U.S. is? Considering how often and how wide the array of subjects Mitt has flip flopped on, does anyone really know what, if elected president,  his agenda would be?

    He's the perfect puppet, so it will be whatever his handlers tell him it is.

      While I notice two on the right have voted your answer down, I also note neither one could answer the question, what does Romney actually stand for? Interesting how easy it is to fault others and yet not offer an answer. Just saying.....

    Mitt Romney will stand for whatever platform the Republican Party will write. Which means absolutely nothing. Mr. Romney may have some very good ideas and some very bad ideas.

    In the end, if elected, which is still a big question mark, he will stand for whatever is politically expedient and what can actually be enacted depending upon the makeup of the House and Senate and other factors.

    I have not heard any promises by Mr. Romney, probably because I have paid no attention to the primaries, since as an independent, I could not vote in my state primary election. The two major parties have spoken. They both will put on conventions with a lot of speakers, and showmanship, but everything has been decided.

    I will now start paying attention to the presidential debates, seeing who the VP choices will be and listening as the candidates define their platforms, now that it is down to two people.

    I do not know what he stands for--I hope I can figure it out before the election.

      I don't think it's going to matter. Congress has over turned popular vote before, and with it being a strong Republican congress at the moment, I fully expect it to happen again.

      The Electoral College has overturned the popular vote--not Congress. It has not happened that often. Some of the states with large electoral vote counts are Democratic states, so do not count on the Republican congress picking the president.

      From my understanding of the Electoral College, it's made up of basically the house of representatives, which means that they would vote pretty much whoever their respective parties wanted in.

    I think there is a fact when it comes to politics, the figure head of the party will follow party lines most of the time.

    Obama has flip flopped just as often as any other politician, and we elected him on the agenda of hope. 

    Romney has very extreme views on social issues, which stem from his religious views.

    How do you cast a vote for either when gas prices are to high, and we are fighting about the rights of our gay population to be married. (I do understand that gas prices are set by speculators, and not the president, but there is inaction by both parties to step in and do something)

    We the people have to look at what is best for the future of the country. It is ultimately the responsibility of each voter to find the answers to questions like these. It is also our responsibility to pay attention to what is said and done, and in the end to vote what we think in the best option for our country.

    In an answer to your question, in the coming months we will learn more about Romney, and Obama and where they stand. I am hoping there is a more political relevant agenda than hope.

    Just as a matter of record, I am an independent with conservative views on finance issues, and liberal views on social issues.

      I understand inaction on gas prices being seen as relevant, but if they step in on gas prices in a free economy, then where will they draw the line on stepping in? Just something to think about.
