|Mitt Romney, the "Etch A Sketch" candidate.|
Not exactly what the soon to be Republican nominee for president, former governor Mitt Romney said, but this is how he acts. This perennial candidate for president Mitt Romney will say or do anything to win.
His goal is to tear down his political foes. He's proven successful to beating down challengers Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, but could this guy beat President Barack Obama? Is all the talk about the former governor strengths about being an economic wiz helpful or hurtful?
Could Romney's hammering of the president on his handling on the economy be an effective strategy?
Here's a taste of the gaffe-prone candidate at the home of John Schnatter, the founder of Papa John's Pizza.
From the AOL Huffington Post Media Group, the soon to be Republican nominee talking about how Democrats would hate the fact he and Mr. Schnatter are so successful!
Romney is married to Ann (nee Davies) who he met at Brigham Young University, They've married in 1969, raised five children and many grandchildren. Romney will be the first Republican nominee who is a practicing Mormon (Church of Latter Day's Saints).
Romney ran for president in 2008. Romney lost to Senator John McCain (R-Arizona). Many conservative agitators dreaded McCain, and openly endorsed Romney while on radio or television.
Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Matt Drudge, Jesse Lee Peterson, Jay Sekulow and Lars Larson are notorious conservative agitators who openly endorse Romney in 2008.
Now in 2012, Republicans are concerned that Romney may follow the same formula that cost John McCain the election. The Republicans urged the candidate to take the middle ground to appeal to the crucial independent voters. The conservative wing of the Republican Party which is credited to the Tea Party Movement is very upset over the perceived media bias in favor of Romney and the brutal treatment of former senator Rick Santorum, Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas), business executive and radio host Herman Cain and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota). These candidates were favorites among the Tea Party. Romney wasted no time eliminating his political foes. Some of their core supporters are upset over the primaries. And of course, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas), the gadfly candidate who is slated to create havoc at the Republican Convention in Tampa, Florida.
Rush Limbaugh who was in favor of Romney in 2008 didn't endorse him for president. He was very concerned with Senator McCain and his stance on undocumented workers (illegal immigrants), McCain-Feingold law that required political organizations to limit their campaign contributions, and his reach across the aisle stance on major issues. Limbaugh declared on talk radio that Romney isn't a conservative.
Romney is a notorious flip-flopper and President Barack Obama is willing to go negative to discredit him as an out of touch politician who caters to the extremists in the Republican Party.
Already Romney is facing scrutiny over the firing of Richard Grenell, an openly gay foreign policy advocate after conservative religious leaders warned him of a mutiny.
John Fugelsang, a CNN commentator and talk radio host gave the Romney campaign unease. Campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom compared the former governor to an "Etch-a-Sketch". That gaffe has proven to be fruitful to Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich during the primaries. This also gave the Obama Presidential Campaign a new talking point when it's discussing the potential nominee's stances on issues.
He made the awful gaffe, "Corporations are people, my friend".
I speculate that conservative agitators such as Sean Hannity will urge Romney to rehash Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers once again to hammer President Barack Obama.
I speculate that President Barack Obama will make statements that assures the Republicans will criticize.
Already, issues such as the contraception debate, public sector union rights, gay rights, Osama bin Laden, domestic spending cuts, voter identification laws, immigration reform, economic inequality continue to put Republicans in a bad light.
Romney being the standard bearer of the Republican Party, could be a disaster if they continue to push forth the policies that could put the United States back into a recession.
Romney endorses Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) and his austerity plans.
Romney endorses the "Deport all Aliens" theme when it comes to immigration reform.
Romney endorses laws that pollute and destroy the environment.
Romney endorses tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.
Romney endorses a national ban on gay marriage.
Romney endorses repealing Obamacare. Yes, American Health Care Reform. A thing then Massachusetts governor Romney supported during his one term.
Romney will cater to the extremists who have bigotry towards race, gender, sexuality, nationality, religion, political and economic standings.
Romney will say or do anything to beat President Barack Obama. He has allies such as Roger Ailes, Karl Rove, Matt Drudge, Fox News, conservative talk radio, blogs and state governors willing to sabotage this 2012 U.S. Election.
President Barack Obama has a strong team, but could he deliver a knock out blow to the perennial candidate Mitt Romney?
