Does Mitt Romney have any core values? Why do you think he is running for President?
Yes, I do believe that Willard Romney does have core values. He values money.
I believe he is what we think he is in regards to his preference for being around others who are just like him, but not nearly as comfortable around everyday Americans.
The reality is, Willard has never known what it is like to struggle, not even a little bit. All the stories Ann tells about them living modestly during and after college gloss over the fact that they were surviving by selling shares of stock that Willard's father had given him. THAT is not how true middle class families get by.
Willard is running for President for one reason: his ego. Willard believes that he is entitled to the Oval Office and that he is entitled to the position: President of the United States of America.
And while many people will never vote for Obama, he has yet to actually EARN the votes of a majority of the people he seeks to lead.
The Kennedy men never knew what it was to struggle financially but they were considered to be excellent men, excellent politicians with a real compassion for the common man.
Duffs: Very valid point. But they could empathize with the middle class. Willard lacks that basic characteristic.
Very well said and on the "money" bworthington. So much so that I've nothing to add.
And duffsmom, you're absolutely right about the Kennedy's, but they did earn their support from the people and they've shown passion. Romney hasn't shown anything.
Well truth be known, I am not a Romney fan either. I just hate to assume that Romney is a bad candidate because he is wealthy. Wealth alone should not discount someone's worthiness as candidate. I have to admit, I have not seen much passion.
The Kennedy men cared about *ALL *people, regardless of race, or finances. Bobby helped the Civil Right movement. I do not see Romney helping anyone BUT ROMNEY!
Yeah, JFK was a faithful husband - just the sort anyone would trust, as long as they weren't married to him (not to mention getting us into Vietnam). And then there was brave Teddy, he only murdered a poor woman, gee he's as bad as Romney!
I don't think Mitt Romney has any core values. In fact he speaks quite contradictory often. He is running for President because Obama is not on a strong wicket. Obama is too soft towards Muslims and Islamic nations. He pumps millions of dollars into Pakistan which trains terrorists in its soil to attack and kill Americans. American money is used to kill Americans. It seems Americans are slowly understanding this truth. Romney has a chance to win the election if Obama does not do something tangible to check the arrogance of Muslims.
As a presidential candidate I have to agree Romney leaves a lot to be desired as a candidate, and that is more of an indictment of our cultural and political system (after all the same system that brought us the failure we call Obama) than a criticism of the man. On the other hand what he proposes to represent stands in stark contrast to what Obama (judging by Obama's of record which he had nothing when elected) represents and there is simply no disputing that. We gave an inexperienced empty suit a shot at the presidency which he turned into the worst administration since, no not since but even worse than, Jimmy Carter's. We certainly can give a successful (I think sterling career is the words Clinton used), accomplished, experienced entrepreneur a shot and in 4 years we'll assess his record. I'd like to remind those who mindlessly want to attack Romney, no matter what their criticism the point is he isn't running against whatever in their imaginations is the perfect candidate, he is running against a failed empty suit filled with failed promises who only wants to divide America at every turn.
I would think Mr. Romney has some very strong core values but he also recognizes that being president is not about imposing his values on the nation. It is about leading from the front. His motivation is likely one of self-actualization. He has enough assets to take care of his and his family's needs. He has already tackled some daunting tasks that others shied away from....maybe he just feels called to serve. The current president apparently feels that his values should be imposed on the rest of America....sad. ~WB
Wow, I could really write a book here but of course I won't. I do believe Romney has core values, he cares about America, his faith and his family. I have been following stories on both sides of the isle and on the left the stories are always only about how rich he is, out of touch, etc. But when you start getting into the truth of his life and what he has done, well it would way too boring for them to report. He has given so much to charity its unreal, his tax returns show that. He has given so much of his time to others as a missionary and then as Pastor in his church. He was Gov. Of Mass. and never took a salary, as well as when he turned over the Olympics, he never took any money. Wow what a concept but my guess those type of things do not ever make it on the mainstream media. He hasn't had an affair, he has a beautiful large family who are all very successful and he doesn't drink. These are all awesome values
and morals, which in this day and age do not seem to be what is expected from our leaders. Shame on us!
Well said W. What is really sad is that anyone would even ask a question like does Romney have any core values, as if that was some kind of unknown (like it was with Baracchio whose main core value is now blatantly evident , to lie unashamedly).
You saved me a lot of typing Whidbeywrite - that is exactly the message I wanted to share. Kudo's and my fingers thank you!
You are welcome....glad to know there are some who are conservative and want a good person in office, not just someone who hangs out with David Letterman and can carry a tune!
I don't think he does and the only reason he is running for President is because he thinks it is "his turn" as his wife, Ann, explains it to us.

Can Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in the next presidential election?Given that Romney is the front-runner, perhaps it's worth pondering.
