The Gilligan of the GOP: Mitt Romney

Least I confuse anyone with this post, I'll start it by saying that no matter what it takes to oust Obama from the White House, we have to hold our nose and do it. I am not willing to endorse Romney. I can't even bring myself to say anything positive about him. He is a pathological liar. He'll institute the same agenda as Obama while calling it pro-life as weak pro-life leaders salute. If we elect him, we're electing a disaster.

The most accurate thing said about Romney was said by Rudy Guliani.

"This is a man without a core, a man without substance, a man that will say anything to become president of the United States."

Right on the money.

But, Romney is not a communist bent on destroying the Republic. And, he is not actively working with the muslim brotherhood to overthrow nations for al queda. No matter what Romney is or isn't, these two threats under a second term for Obama are malicious enough to humanity to vote for Romney. Moreover, damage under Romney will be somewhat limited by the GOP.

We are voting against Obama in November. Period. End of story.

So, having said that, it would be difficult for anyone following the news this week to deny that Romney is a trainwreck.

The more Romney opens his mouth and contradicts himself, the more the GOP feels the bullet in their foot.

Boehner is candidly acknowledging the trainwreck publicly.

The evangelicals are not committed enough for a ground game. Neither are Catholic prolifers. In fact, we're a few months away and I have yet to see a ground game.

The only positive thing that could come out of electing Obama for a second term is that we will finally see the end of Romney's political career. The GOP would not be dumb enough to dust him off and reinvent him for 2016.

Oh wait...

Carol, you don't have to publish this if you'd rather not.

An Obama 2nd term would not only end Romney's career. It might end the country.

I can understand not wanting to say anything positive about Romney. However, I'm urging one and all not to trash-talk him. What constructive purpose can that serve? Frankly, I'm having a hard-enough time trying to convince folks that the survival of this nation may well depend on voting the GOP candidate, even if that candidate is Barney the dog-catcher. If they see negative talk from us, I think that will only make them inclined to not vote for Obama's ouster. Let's refrain from criticizing Romney until the election's over. If he wins the White House, there will be opportunity for criticism then.
