Support Governor Romney to Preserve the Status Quo.

The Status Quo is Great!Here are the reasons to support Governor Romney:

Here come some!

♥ The transition from President Obama to President Romney will be less traumatic than the transition to any other Republican candidate because they are the most similar;

♥ Governor Romney created RomneyCare, the precursor to ObamaCare, a marvelous thing;

♥ He is an experienced politician and we need to help the political class to thrive now more than ever before. Outsiders are bad for the political industry country because they might upset the status quo;

♥ Washington, D.C. is the political, cultural and spiritual center of the universe world country Washington beltway and we must keep it that way. Otherwise, more of our already diminished exceptionalism will be lost;

♥ The wretched Scum of the Earth referred to as the Tea Party — who rarely drink tea, don’t even amount to a political party and can’t possibly get one of their favorites elected — will cease to flourish. Along with them will go all of the conservative principles partisan bickering in Washington they have produced;

♥ He has great hair and looks really presidential; that’s the most important qualification for the highest office in the nation. Celebrities need to be handsome and/or pretty (N.B. There is an important exception for very attractive conservative female presidential candidates);

♥ He neither smokes nor drinks and hence won’t get drunk and puff tobacco smoke in people’s faces;

I am The One.

♥ With such sterling qualifications as these his election in 2012 is assured and we will be forever done with President Obama.  What more could we possibly demand? Support the Winner!

Oh, never mind. It wouldn’t make much difference, is not worth the effort and would be racist. Let’s just keep President Obama.  After all, because of his great humility he is certain to do better during his second term.  He has

admitted that he’s “screwed up,” is “frustrated” and might only deserve one term in the White House. He’s acknowledged that he hasn’t fulfilled campaign promises and has admitted that the change he vowed to bring to Washington hasn’t arrived.

Whether the self-critiques are born of political savvy, humility or candor, they help establish the president as an honest, sympathetic figure heading into the 2012 election, a leader willing to acknowledge that the sky-high expectations for his 2008 hope-and-change campaign have fallen short in reality.

Of course, we could try to elect a political neophyte like Herman Cain in a forlorn hope for change we can believe in need.  But how could he possibly function in the Washington environment?  Even brief pauses to think are disqualifying (thinking is an unknown luxury in austere Washington) and for a candidate to acknowledge that he doesn’t know something is worse. Could such a dunce find Capitol Hill on the map or, if he managed to get there, pronounce the names of some of our most experienced and revered congressional leaders? Might Senator Reid come out “Uzi-uzi-pelosi-pelosi-reid-istan-reid-istan?” We can’t have that sort of thing!  It would be a grave error to expect minimal competence, even with helpful guidance from the Washington insiders who would flock to him.

Don't worry. Be Happy! Support Romney.

Note: Neither Governor Romney nor anyone associated with his campaign has approved this message.

    My friend is currently writing an article for the conservative press and I am helping in the research..(watch FreeRepublic for the article) Please be honest. How many of you who say you will definitely NOT vote for Romney, are doing so because you hate his religion, Mormonism. The focus of the upcoming article is that many conservatives hate Mormonism and are using other arguments (flip-flopper, establishment, not a true conservative) to avoid the appearance of religious bigotry. Please be frank, do any of you think this is accurate?

    • There are many reasons I don’t like Governor Romney. However, his religion is not among them for several reasons I stated in this article. There, I looked at the doctrinal differences between traditional Christianity and Mormonism. Many of the doctrines are similar but there are also substantial differences. An Agnostic, not a Christian, it’s hardly my place to suggest whether those differences should matter to Christians.

      However, I was rather put off by this statement of why Governor Romney’s Mormonism is a valid reason to vote against him.

      Placing a Mormon in . . . [the Presidential bully] pulpit would be a source of pride and a shot of adrenaline for the LDS church. It would serve to normalize the false teachings of Mormonism the world over. It would also provide an opening to Mormon missionaries around the world, who could start every conversation: “Let me tell you about the American president.” To elect a Mormon President is to advance the cause of the Mormon Church.

      A Romney presidency would have the effect of actively promoting a false religion in the world. If you have any regard for the Gospel of Christ, you should care. A false religion should not prosper with the support of Christians. The salvation of souls is at stake.

      . . . . If Mitt Romney believes what the Mormon Church teaches about the world and how it operates, then he is unfit to serve. We make him our President at great peril to the intellectual and spiritual health of our nation.

      As I noted in the article,

      These arguments, if accepted, would impose upon the President a new obligation, that of Defender of The One True Faith. The title of the English monarchs has included the phrase Defender of The Faith since 1521 with a brief hiatus between 1530 and 1544. By prohibiting the establishment of a federal religion, the First Amendment rejected that sort of thing. The President must support, rather than abandon, and must be dedicated to, defending the basic principles upon which the country was founded.
