Even though the picture is from January, both he and Mitt Romney can now smile. It is time as many have suggested that Republican voters rally behind one candidate.
This game is a long, long, long way from over. We will continue to go out and fight and defeat President Barack Obama
With today's announcement we know who that is. Romney is the best candidate if for the simple reason he is most like his opponent. This of course translates to votes from all demographics. He has moderate views and some have even suggested he is at heart a liberal. That would be easy to believe considering some of his political past. Conservatives do not have a long shelf life in states such as Massachusetts. But as Romney did as governor, he knows what it take to get votes. He has proven that again this year by outspending his fellow nominees. But is this what we want for 2012?
Let's take a look at Governor Romney's website. The three main issues listed are the economy, foreign policy and smaller government. All conservative issues. Then in the list of issues (in smaller print) is healthcare The factoids on the right definitely show this is not smaller government. The headlines for this page are most appropriate "What is at stake" "Obama's failure". Of course the true failure will be if it is actually allowed to take effect .
So again we are faced with the obvious choice. We must vote for a Republican to end a presidency. Four years was long enough. Sure, Romney may not be the perfect candidate but can we afford another term with President Obama? Even though Obama may seem conservative now, what happens in 2012? Like a employee threatened with losing his job, what is coming from the White House is only to make the voters happy. Maybe if he can fool enough people he can keep his job. But remember the first years of the Obama presidency? Trying out some new ideas, some worked, some failed miserably. Do we really want to give him a chance to do that as lame duck president?
Mitt Romney knows what the key issues area. As president, let's hope he stays focused on them. Let's show the country what prosperity a Republican at 1600 Penn will once again create.
