Does anyone here think that Mitt Romney would make a good President?

Not trying to start any wars, just asking for honest opinions.

Just the fact that he disappeared during the "debt ceiling" nightmare and only come out after the fact to trash the deal, shows what kind of a person he is...

The ONLY Republican candidate I would even consider voting for would be Jon Huntsman.

But I won't, I will be voting for Obama, again.

What is interesting is that his father--who also ran for the Republican nomination in 1968--was one of the Republican "moderates" who had an appeal to independents and liberals in MI in the 60's. The father actually accomplished something; however, the son is all bells and whistles. The health care in MA was actually the work of the Democrats and Romney signed on since he knew what would happen if he did not (defeat). You also have the Olympics, which is a subject that the media fails to look at more closely.%0D %0D What I love is that Bachman and Paul will finish strong in IA and that will throw the GOP into a frenzy.

And while Catholics may not have played an active role in fighting against gay rights back in the '60s, particularly considering that the concept basically didn't exist pre-Stonewall given how hidden gay life was at the time, they sure as shit do now -- and Catholics have A LOT more power, both domestically and globally, than the Mormon church, even if Mormons happened to play a greater role in the Prop 8 vote.

If that's true, then Romney is sure to be defeated by Jon Huntsman, who was born and raised into one of the wealthiest families in America (and I believe the single-wealthiest Mormon family - the Huntsmans are worth billions and own half of Utah). Hell, their compound in Park City alone recently sold for close to $100 million, owing to its unparalleled size -- "only" 60 acres, but that's an awful lot in an area where half-acre lots routinely sell for a mil and up -- and proximity to the Deer Valley ski resort.

My presidential voting record is 100% Democratic: Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Obama. Sorry if I actually take the time to *research* the opposition, even if what I find doesn't fit with your wishful-thinking belief that all Republicans are idiotic rich kids (Bush) or cunts (Palin) from oil-loving states. In this case, it just so happens that the two least odious, as well as accomplished, GOP candidates for next year's election are both Mormons -- one of whom was nominated as our ambassador to China, arguably the most important ambassadorship of all in today's world, by none other than President Obama himself.

Or check with Massachusetts residents to see if they actually want him back? Or "research" what Romney has been claiming and promising on the campaign trail, almost all of which has been false, idiotic, or both.

As for Huntsman, he actually does have a decent record but he's proving to be a lousy campaigner. Romney is killing him even in Huntsman's home state of Utah. And Huntsman is off to a rotten start, totally flubbing the announcement that he was running, unable to control the fights and defections amongst his campaign staff, little money coming in, and no traction in the polls.

And both Huntsman and Romney have totally abandoned their supposed centrist credentials to become babbling Tea Partyists.

[quote]So what's his record on jobs and the economy?

The MA economy improved dramatically during his tenure -- but, then, so did the rest of the U.S., so one can't necessarily attribute that to Romney. He did, however, successfully eliminate the state's projected $3 billion budget deficit shortly after his election, through a combination of cuts and tax increases (albeit in the form of "fees"), and he led the effort to turn around Boston's Big Dig project after its infamous ceiling collapse accident. Please tell me you're not trying to assail his business record, considering he rose through the ranks over 20 years at Bain and ultimately not only became its CEO, but also launched an entire spinoff division on his own. The *only* other prominent Republican politician in the country with more solid of an actual CEO background is Mike Bloomberg.

[quote]So why did you give him credit for the fact that that law passed while he was governor?

I misspoke. I apologize.

[quote]LOL... Talk about a pathetic attempt to change the subject. You just can't bring yourself to admit that he was a lousy governor who'd make a lousy President. Why is that?

Because he wasn't a lousy governor, by any rational, unbiased standpoint, and most likely wouldn't be a lousy president. My point was that the people of Massachusetts are clearly rather capricious in their opinions. The fact that they wouldn't re-elect Romney now -- particularly since he's flip-flopped, at least on the campaign trail in order to avoid Tea Party flak, on nearly all of the best things he did as governor, most specifically universal health coverage in MA -- is not necessarily a reflection on the job he did then.

Not really. And I note that you are, once again, carefully omitting his record on job creation. Free hint: it really sucked. As in near worst-in-the-nation sucked.

[quote]He did, however, successfully eliminate the state's projected $3 billion budget deficit

That is his claim. The reality is, though, that it was actually half that. And of the remainder, half of that was removed by the simple expedient of dipping into the rainy day fund.

[quote]through a combination of cuts and tax increases (albeit in the form of "fees")

And that is, in fact, another of Romney's problems. He raised half a billion dollars in new fees while simultaneously piously declaiming that he had not raised taxes. Not to mention advocating severe cuts while simultaneously trying to reduce the income tax rate on millionaires (gee, where have we heard that before?).

[quote]and he led the effort to turn around Boston's Big Dig project after its infamous ceiling collapse accident.

You might want to do a little more "research" on that, as Romney's administration is implicated in the process that led to that accident.

[quote]Please tell me you're not trying to assail his business record, considering he rose through the ranks over 20 years at Bain and ultimately not only became its CEO, but also launched an entire spinoff division on his own.

Let's talk about job creation, shall we? Since that is, after all, what Romney's prime talking point seems to be. Let's just say that Bain Capital was not known for that particular task. In fact, the opposite was the case.

[quote]The *only* other prominent Republican politician in the country with more solid of an actual CEO background is Mike Bloomberg.

And the correlation between success as a CEO and success as a President is what, exactly?

[quote]Because he wasn't a lousy governor, by any rational, unbiased standpoint

Actually, yeah, he kinda was. Like many CEOs who try politics, he proved to be not very good at it, as he continued to want to call the shots. He had frequent bitter fights with the state legislature and was never able to develop a successful working relationship with them. And no, it wasn't because he was a Republican, as Weld didn't have these kinds of problems. In fact, Romney did his best to stack the deck in his favor, spending $3 million and vigorously campaigning to oust Democratic members of the legislature, an effort that led to state Republicans having two *fewer* seats than before.

[quote]and most likely wouldn't be a lousy president.

Based on his campaign promises, yes, he would, in fact, be a lousy President.

[quote]My point was that the people of Massachusetts are clearly rather capricious in their opinions.

And yet, you have provided no evidence to support that assertion. Yes, they elected Brown. So? That just means that they elect the man rather than the party, which isn't exactly "capricious." They elected Weld and then Romney, with the latter proving to be extremely unpopular because he was not, in fact, a very good governor. Deal with it.

Oh, and next time you "research" a Presidential candidate's record, don't just look at their press releases.

If you call neglect of the environment, cutting taxes for the rich, starting wars based on bald-faced lies (and Romney is good at baldfaced lying and flip flopping), cutting programs designed to help poor and lower middle income people and letting alliances and American diplomacy go to shit good things, then yes, Romney would be greater than any other president there has been except for George W Bush, IF you can say he was president; Bush started with a surplus achieved by the Clinton administration and squandered it in a matter of what, 2 years? The lion's share went to the rich; the late Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, despite his being a homophobe did call it right when he said that the Bush Regime was the biggest cash and carry scheme ever in American history. And you'll just get more of the same with Romney. Obama is trying to get back to the balanced budget and hopefully surplus of the Clinton years after a near Depression caused by the Dubya crowd. If you truly want Depression just vote for Romney. And after he's in let me know how all those "faith-based" government disbursements, this time led by the Mormons, are working for you.

Well, let's look at his past performance:

BAIN Capital - Successfully built and ran a business that resurrected MANY nationwaide companies, including Staples and Sports Authority.

As Governor, he ran Massachusetts within smart budgets after total financial failure of his predecessor. He worked with a Dem majority to institute health care reform AT THE STATE LEVEL, W/O TAX INCREASES!

He got Mass. schools performing THE BEST IN THE USA, and they remain there today!

He RESCUED the Olympics after mismanagement began to cause the USA EMBARRASSMENT!

On top of ALL THIS, he picks Paul Ryan, A MATHMATICAL, BOOKKEEPING GENIOUS to help with the correction of our federal mismanagement.

He would be a far, far worse president than even Dubbya. He doesn't have the patience or temperment for the position. He's arrogant, elitist, self-absorbed, and completely out of touch. He's been an utter embarassment and failure on the international stage. He was a failure as Governor of MA.

I continued to be bewildered that this election is so close. Even though Obama wasn't the most popular guy, even with those who voted for him, he should be solidly in front of this clown. Initially, Romney was running way behind him until that first debate and then all at once he is a serious candidate??? I just don't get it.

He'd be a good looking one, which is a rarity.

No, he would be a fucking nightmare.

No. I simply don't trust Mitt Romney. I think he has more ability than Orack Obama, but I don't trust Mitt to act for,the benefit of the American people. Someone said on this thread that Mitt ismReagan without themalzheimers. This is essentially true.
