    Romney representing the GOP accurately?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently a college student writing a paper based on Mitt Romney; throughout the semester I've written various other papers about the community and functionality of this site specifically and was hoping you guys would be able to take a minute and help me on my last project for my class.

    Do you think Mitt Romney's stance on issues across the board accurately represents the majority of Republicans? I'm curious to see why or why not as well if you wouldn't mind; I know his own party has had difficulty embracing him and I'm hoping to discover why that is.

    Thanks!

    I think there could be no more fitting representative of the supply side/ deregulation party than the King of the 1%, who proposes to carry on the GOP tradition for the last 30 years of cutting taxes for the rich, financial deregulation, and increased military spending.

    This will be one of the most poetically represented presidential elections in our history, IMO.

    His job isn't to represent Republicans. His job is to convince us that he can represent America.

    I remain unconvinced, but he's would still be my President after I don't vote for him.

    Drunken, I completely agree with you; yet the reason I asked specifically about representing the GOP was because it seemed that the republicans had to be almost 'forced' to accept him - satirically Stephen Colbert had his "Countdown to Loving Mitt" clock were he explained the hesitance to accept him as the nominee. Personally I identify myself as an Independent and because of this I wanted to get follow republicans' view on the issue and possibly explain their reasoning for or against Mitt Romney.

    First off, Mitt created RomneyCare. ObamaCare is actually RomneyCare version 2.0. Mitt Romney also raised taxes in Massachusetts.

    On many of the other issues, Romney has flip-flopped so many times I don't know where he currently stands on them.

    Romney also believes in global warming.
    He needs to come here and freeze his butt off.

    I 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.

    Romney's individual mandate and assault weapons ban is deregulation and supply side policy?
