On Obromney’s Debits
Mitt Romney has problems. There are many of them. Some of them would be hindrances in a general election match-up against Buraq Obama. Great ones. Assuming, of course, he can snag the GOP nomination.
The biggest debit Romney brings to the competition is that he indemnifies Obama against so many of his negatives.
Obama has Obama Care. Romney has Romney care. The difference? Who knows. And if there is one it will certainly be beyond a member of the casual electorate to find it.
Obama is an elitist. He has never had a real job and was groomed for the position of President at least since his days as an undergraduate. But Romney is also an elitist. And one of a higher caliber. He has had real jobs. But they were all ones bought with a privilege brought with his birth. And it has probably been well known to many that he would be pursuing the office of President since that day of his birth.
Obama is a corporatist. He works to rig a system that grants favors to his friends in pseudo free market with taxes and regulations and loans and bailouts. But so far this system has only bought him the White House as an advance for the work that he was going to do for it. Romney is also a corporatist. And the system has already made a multi-millionaire out of the man -something that won’t occur for Obama until after he has left for office. And unlike Obama Mr. Romney will never be able to take money from the corporatist system while simultaneously convincing the voters that he is a man of the people with a strong populist bent.
