Why Mitt Romney is bad for America

Mitt Romney has very limited political experience. He was not a successful governor of Massachusetts's and 70 per cent of the citizens there described his governorship as fair to poor when he left office. His vetoes were overturned 200 times in the state house indicating his leadership style was out of touch with the people who elected him.
Romney did ran a successful Olympics in Salt lake city after other influential Mormons had bribed IOC members to get the Olympics in Utah. The Olympics is an international sporting event. It did not provide Mr. Romney with any government experience. I recall Mitt riding up on a white palomino horse to speak to the crowd at the end of the Olympics and thought" Oh boy, a man on a white horse. I wonder what he will be running for next."
I would guess Mitt had been planning to run for President for many years and hired a Madison Avenue public relations firm to make it happen. He could punch the governor's ticket in a small state and run the Olympics for a year and become President. This is why Romney is not liked by the other Republican candidates who have more experience. They know why Romney is running for President and it is all the wrong reasons. The other candidates can sense the Madison Avenue plastic in Mitt Romney.
I would remind you that the Romney career has many parallels to the Bush career. Bush owned the Texas Rangers for a short period and was a governor of Texas for 6 years. Does America really want another President who followed in George W. Bush footsteps? Do they want a president who claimed to be a uniter, but ending up being a divisive influence. If you study Romney's governorship of Massachusetts, you can anticipate a repeat performance. Romney would repeatedly stop any important Democratic initiatives in the House or Senate to fix America.
Romney calls himself a candidate of change after the successes of Democrats with this theme. In the past 28 years we have had 20 years of Republican presidents. Do you really think another GOP president will be able to make the changes America needs to get its economy running and its international reputation back. A Republican like Romney would be a disaster for America. Mitt Romney spent most of his life taking a part organizations and laying off people. We need a president who can put America back together again.
Mitt Romney's Mormon religion did not play well in South Carolina even after he got a Bob Jone's University endorsement. Bob Jone's University was a segregationist school for many years and is operated by evangelicals with extreme views. Many of the people could be described evangelical Confederates. Why would Romney even meet with such people? Was he that desperate for an endorsement in the South?
Romney's position in the Mormon church is another issue. He is a Mormon Bishop and has to spend many hours with his flock. Will Mitt Romney resign as a Mormon bishop if he receives the the Republican nomination? The Mormon church is very nationalistic and believes Jesus came to the New World for three days and converted Amer-Indians to Christianity. They believe the American Indian and Mormons are descended for the Tribes of Israel and that Mormons are therefore the Chosen People of God. Mormons consider other Christians to be Gentiles. Doe Mitt Romney believe he has been chosen to lead America or is he just trying to land as many promises before the RNC convention.
Romney has to be stopped before it is too late. America doesn't need a Gordon Gecko or a Wall Street wolf as president. We have had this for 20 of the past 28 years. We have seen the dollar decline, a huge increase in the deficit, a wasteful war and drops in unemployment. We don't need more of the kind of change the Republican Party has been offering. It doesn't work.
