IMO, we no longer have Dems and the GOP.
We have independents, (by far the largest group), liberals and conservatives (the other 30 to 60 %)..
There is something that I do not like about Romney - maybe that he represents the 1% of our nation....
Cool, let's tax cut the middle class as well then. They'll have more money to spend on what the suppliers have to sell.and provide even bigger tax cuts to the rich at the expense of seniors and the middle class.
I voted no even though I could have made the case for a yes. Let me explain. Mitt Romney is a "blow with the wind" candidate. He takes whatever stands will help him most politically at that moment. That's why we have a different Romney when he's running for MA governor, versus the Republican nomination, versus the general presidential election. I voted no because I don't think the average Republican believes it's good policy to just flip flop to whatever position suits him best at that moment. I've been extremely critical of the Republican Party, but I don't believe most Republicans think flip flopping is acceptable.
I could have voted yes if I only went by the positions Romney is taking right now. If you judged him with a short-term memory, you could say he represents a lot of Republicans' views. If you go by the positions he's taken in his political career, you have to conclude he's not a Republican. He's not a Democrat. He's not a Libertarian. He's not a Socialist. He's a ping pong ball.
yes i suppose.Does Romney accurately represent Republicans?
since he has such a huge lead in the primaries,
the majority of republicans must like him,
and think he represents them pretty well.

Why is this an RIP thread?
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Or in other words hes a politicianI think he represents the GOP perfectly. He's always switching his stories, he'll never be honest with us, he'll never tell us his intentions or goals, and in the end he's out for himself and himself alone.
