The former Governor Mitt Romney touts the virtues of anti-abortion, anti-homosexual marriage
and other conservative positions. Governor Mitt Romney also champions defense, professes faith in the
Christian God, and speak well in sound bites. The former Governor of Massachusetts is
a polished presidential candidate.
Beneath the polish, however, Mitt Romney is a man who hasn't walked his talk and even
walked contrary to his talk.
His pro-life and anti-homosexual marriage positions date back only to 2006, prior to which he consistently
supported abortion and
rights. While he claims that his conversion to social conservatism at 57 years of age is
genuine, it happens to coincide with his consideration to seek the 2008
Republican nomination for President.
Mitt Romney has neither foreign policy nor defense experience to support his
claimed strength on defense, and even the sincerity of that claim rests on thin ice. When his friends went to war in Vietnam,
Romney went to France instead.
When his neighbors sent their sons to Iraq, all five of Romney's sons stayed home.
Mitt Romney professes faith in the
Christian God and
describes his Mormon church as just another church down the street. In reality,
it is a "church" that teaches
Jesus and Satan are brothers, Jesus
wasn't always God, and humans can become God (see
Mitt Romney's claims of social conservatism, strength on defense and faith in
the Christian God share a common thread; they are carefully crafted and polished fabrications (see his
Mitt Romney has proven that he will
to get elected. He speaks from calculation instead of conviction, and if he were to
win the Republican nomination, he is as likely to betray the
the general election as he already has betrayed the liberals.
America deserves better and must give
Mitt Romney a wide berth.
