Election 2012: Your stories
Two Faces Of Romney
Ever since Romney has been nominated as a Presidential pick, and who also represents the republicans and their ideals. I decided I would look into who Romney really is as a person, and to understand what he would like to do for the country and how we are going to get out of this mess and to see a future for the U.S, I also needed to understand if he could lead. I’m sorry to say Romney falls short on all fronts. He will not give you any idea of what he would do differently than Obama; He will not give you a firm stance on most important issues. He is just trying to win, by just citing anti- Obama rhetoric. So in my opinion he is offering you nothing, so don’t expect anything. How can a voter really decide, if he does not give any facts? How can you vote for someone if all they do is to attack the opposition?
Romney and Ryan tout them selves as having a great family, that this is one of their successes, which that is a success, but it does nothing for my family for them to have a nice family. Both of these men have been in leadership roles, and yet they are not speaking of them. Ryan as I believe has a longer voting record than Romney.
As we have found out about Romney he has two messages, one that he is telling the public, and the other what he says in front of his rich backers, and off camera. Many times Romney likes to attack the less fortunate and has a very low opinion of people who are not like him, and yet he wants to rule the people. He doesn’t take the time in finding out why people really need government help. He seems to me that he indeed thinks he is a victim, that the whole reason he pays taxes, is to support the people using government handouts, I guess Romney doesn’t understand that you must meet requirements to obtain this help, and the rules have been changed, that a lot of people only get some help. Romney does not understand due to the fact, he has always been rich; the only real people that he associates with are only rich. Romney has made a fortune off of the American people. The jobs he helped send over seas, and OH yes, these people had to apply for unemployment, and probably had to get some government help, for their families until they were able to get new jobs. Which Romney likes to call them handouts. He launders this money in off shore accounts, and we have been hearing from the echo chamber, that our tax rate is to high and all these poor rich people and corporations are paying tax at 35%, It has come to light, that this is not true, the tax deductions that Romney gets are really government subsidy’s, in the form of exemptions and deductions. He will not show you his tax statements, only a summary; so they can tell you anything. With this being said, who is Romney?
Well this year Romney was being taped at a private fund raiser telling his rich friends, that 47% of voters would vote for Obama based on because people getting hand outs, this is what Romney stated.
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…these are people who pay no income tax.” Romney has shown disdain for people that are poor. I have never heard anyone say they are entitled to government social service. Social Security yes I do hear that.
“But this is Romney this past February in an interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, Romney was quoted: “I’m in this race because I care about the Americans. I’m not concerned about the very poor — we have a safety net there.” Romney said this when he talked about his focus on the middle class. O’Brien asked him to clarify, stating, “I think there are lots of very poor Americans who are struggling who would say, ‘That sounds odd.’” Romney then tried to explain that he believes that there are a sufficient amount of resources for those who cannot seem to make ends meet. He also said he is not concerned about the very rich because they “are doing just fine,” thus leaving his primary focus on the middle class.”
Very reasonable statement, sounds caring until an under cover video that was published, By Mother Jones, exposed what Romney really thinks, He summed up a lot of people in the 47 % .He also discusses some other topics as well.
1.Telling some of his campaign strategy- how to attack Obama
2.What he thinks about the Israeli and Palestine conflict, -how he will kick the can down the road.
3.The role that his wife is playing in his campaign election- to limit her in his campaign.
4.His take on the economy- that just electing him will boost the economy.
We have heard Romney, saying that Chrysler should go bankrupt that was in 2008, Then he patted his self on the back and made the statement “I’ll take a lot of credit” for saving the industry, saying he helped with the managed bankrupt.
, We heard his statement to a college student, when she asked Romney that she has a high college debt due to the fact of high interest rate on school student loans, “Romany stated well we are not going to pay for your education I’ll tell you that”. The girl did not ask Romney to pay for her education. We heard the disparage ring remarks, that he put down cookies that were donated for one of his fundraisers; they weren’t good enough for him. Instead of saying nothing or thanking for the donation, Romney chooses to ridicule. Romney can’t take it when you present him with facts that he has already stated, or that when you corner him, he becomes very defensive, starts rambling, and gets very mad, to me he looks like a spoiled child, that just got caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
Romney spoke at a radio talk host in Iowa, here is a video that caught Romney on hidden camera, and at the end he was questioned about his Mormons beliefs and abortion. That when Christ comes back he will rule from Israel, he will split mount Olives and Christ will govern from Israel and the state of Missouri.
