    He'd pivot the discussion to the Right, but you have to remember in governance, you only get so lucky to run Right or Left with a set number of issues before you run into the necessary roadblock that is known as political opposition.

    That's exactly what I think when it comes to Romney's rhetoric.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: How Would Romney Govern?

    They both concern me one is an idealist and the other a mergers and acquisitions guy. One wants to build on dreams the other wants to tear down nightmares without thought of it's repercussions. The part that I find bothersome is there is no balance between either position and the two candidates.

    It's for that reason I don't see Romney doing any major harm to the US. While I don't exactly agree with his policies, I won't be the only one who doesn't, so I think we're pretty safe.

    You could probably argue that by citing some of the Republican social policies, but I seriously doubt the worst of them will go anywhere. I suspect we may have a halt in progress, but I doubt we'll go backwards that far - if at all.

    Hell, most Presidents do not do dramatic harm or change. Even the hostility connected with the Reagan administration could not match with what the budgets of each program area were really like. In foreign affairs we usually see a continuation of the predecessor's policies in large measure. In some measure, certainly Sam (addressing him now), it is no surprise that neoconservatism of the late 90s and early 2000s will remain influential, but Obama's posture of what portions he did change, will likely continue.

    Congress forcing hardware on the military that the generals do NOT want and do not Need, but the congress needs to make points with the voters, so we get brand new hardware that sit in fields until they get scrapped.
