:roflmao: at Mitt Romney. What a tool. Not that Obama's much better, I guess at this point it's just picking for the lesser evil.

You mean the guy who did something as Gov of a State, and the guy who hit the chicken button like a stripper's pink ass and then became President?

THAT evil?

I doubt he intended to call Obama the N word. You can't expect someone who attends six or seven speaking engagements a day to never get his words mixed up. In any case, Santorum is officially out of the race, and I doubt there's any chance he'll be picked as the running mate. There's little love lost between the Santorum and Romney camps. Senator Santorum didn't even endorse Romney.

Gerald Ford once criticized Jimmy Carter as being a man who would say anything to become President. I can't fault that statement...Carter took playing to the audience to the extreme, contracting what he'd said in other venues on several egregious occasions. I see Romney in that same light. Except with Romney, he's not trying to hype up this or that crowd, he changed nearly all of his political beliefs. I wonder if even Republicans trust him.

I don't care about what they say to become president---I care about what they do as president. In Jimmy Carter's case, he came to Washington as an outsider but acted like an outsider while in Washington. That's his prerogative but it made him one of the worst presidents ever as he stuck to his type of people and didn't engage the power makers/beltway people or the establishment.

Romney, with his experience as Governor, at Bain and Company, and heading the Salt Lake Olympics, will learn the game pretty quick IMHO.

I understand your point, but what they say to become president generally provides some insight as to how they act as president. I really have no idea how Romney would govern. Would he focus on economic issues and make rationale decisions to balance government and industry, or would he pursue a staunchly conservative agenda? Would he gut federal agencies, as he's indicated during the campaign? The federal health reform law is based on the Mass. health reform law passed by Romney. The governor is now rabidly opposed to health care reform. Would a Romney presidency mean 4-8 years of no action on health care? Would he weaken environmental regulations? Would he pursue an aggressive foreign policy towards Russia? Would he start a war with Iran?

I don't doubt Romney would adapt well to the political environment in Washington. I just don't know which Romney would show up...the moderate governor of Massachussetts, or the most right-wing man on the planet, as he's currently portraying himself.

Good analysis on Carter, by the way.
