    The subject of the thread was how Romney would govern. The point I have made is since Romney supports the same policies as Bush, we can assume he will govern as Bush did, with the same end result.

    Fine.

    I disagree with you.

    I have no great love of the idea of hurting someone, but if an intruder demonstrated that he was about to do great harm to my family or me, I would be willing to savagely hurt or kill the SOB before I allowed him to so so.

    There is a dramatic difference between what Mitt said and what you think he said.

    If today's economy was even remotely similar to the economy under W, this would be termed the Obama miracle and he would be up by 20 points in the polls.

    If that's what trickle down would do for the economy, there are about 23 million people who are out of work who would like that sort of an approach.

    Are you aware of just how bad things are right now?

    I have held various positions in my life based on a variety of changing circumstances. It's what a guy does when he finds one approach is not working or not working as well as he hoped it should.

    A man who holds to the same ideals and beliefs regardless of the circumstances, like the Big 0, is called an ideologue and he may run into a set of problems or circumstances that fit his particular positions. If the circumstances change, it's likely that his one trick pony approach will be useless. This is what has happened to the Big 0.

    I would prefer to have a man who reviews the situation and adapts his approach to fit the goals.

    If the President is a leader, he will lead.

    If the President is Obama, he will divide.

    Yes, and like the majority of the country, I know what policies caused it. That is why we are not voting for those policies again.

    No, he said exactly what I said he said. He wants to invade Iran. Even if he can't get congressional approval to do it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    If he didn't do it on every issue and so close apart and on such giant issues than I wouldn't have a problem. But once he's put in the White House couldn't he "change his mind" again? Once again, this is about Romney, not Obama. I've seen what Obama has to offer, I dislike it. That doesn't automatically mean Romney is better. I think he would be a poor president, thus my vote will not go to either of them.

    What he's doing isn't "adapting" it's flip-flopping.
