America is apparently looking at a possible Presidential election choice of Mitt Romney vs. Barak Obama. All I can think of is where we found the barrels from which bottoms we were able to scrape up these two guys. Here we have a corporate democrat and a classic corporate republican, each possessing virtually NO discernable personal values, standards or ethics. I guess on the other hand that is the point, perfect corporate stooges, guys who do not have any personal vision to get in the way of performing their duties to their corporate/special interest donors. I mean, think of how problematic it would be if they actually cared about America, the constitution or its citizens – that could really get in the way of business as usual.
I implore republicans to pick either a real conservative, such as Ron Paul or at least someone interesting such as Herman Cain so the election might actually be about something (Michele Bachmann is correct when she says the republican party needs to nominate a real conservative, she has recognized that neither Romney and Perry are actually conservative). It is already very clear that a 1st Romney term and a 2nd Obama term would be very similar. Romney has already embraced a hand off approach to Medicare, he wants a large and archivist military with its associated foreign involvement and corporate welfare and has refused to address solutions for social security (any of this sounding familiar). This means that the very serious subject of controlling government spending and deficit reduction is off the table (apparently) for both of these contenders.
If republicans don’t make a bolder choice then Romney we will have an elections choice just like the one comedian Lewis Black spoke of during the Bush vs. Kerry race. He said that you walked into the voting booth and there was to piles of shit…..
Happy Columbus Day 2011!
