Go Romney!

Just vote for Romney: he is our last chance

McCain? He is way unpredictable to be a a nominee . McCain Huckabee ticket is a way to nowhere !

Remember :

illegal immigration

Global warming

McCain’s friendships with Kerry

if McCain is a nominee I am no longer a republican . Why would I?

Is Romney perfect? No he is not! But he is better than McCain and this is what counts today. let us face it: we have no  perfect candidate. So,  let us select  the best one from what we have ! Romney is at least a smart guy ! Unlike McCain (who was  ranked fifth from the bottom in a class of about 800 graduates) Romney was a brilliant student He graduated from a joint Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration program coordinated between Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School. He graduated cum laude from the law school and was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent of his business school class. Is anything wrong if republican nominee will be a smart guy?

Romney, McCain and timetable

according to CNN

“The sharpest exchange in the debate came when Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, was asked about the McCain campaign’s charge that he once said he favored a strict timetable for removing troops from Iraq.

Romney has consistently denied ever having backed a timetable and said McCain was taking a small portion of a quote out of context.

“It’s simply wrong,” Romney said. “By the way, raising it a few days before the Florida primary, when there was very little time for me to correct the record, falls in the kind of dirty tricks that Ronald Reagan would have found reprehensible.” But McCain, the Arizona senator who has strongly backed President Bush’s Iraq policy, accused Romney of hedging after public support for the war waned.”

OK, if it is so why state talker McCain would not say in a few days before the Florida primary that “Romney of hedging after public support for the war waned” instead of lying about Romney embracing a timetable foe withdraw ?

 McCain may be right that Romney should support surge back then in more clear words. I would agree with McCain in that.

But I am troubled by the fact that instead of criticizing Romney for not clear enough supporting the surge  , McCain start making stories about Romney accepting a timetable. Why in order to make a legitimate point McCain has to lie?

Is it the high moral ground on which McCain is making gains?

McCain versus Romney

CNN super Tuesday republican debates;

McCain versus Romney:

“ I am a leader and I was leading out of patriotism not for profit.”

Does it mean that McCain is discounting all those who are making a leaving by making a profit by entrepreneurship? Is it enough to be hero to diminish all those who are keeping economy running by making personal profits?  How can McCain be a president of the USA if he is mocking the idea of making profit in the USA?

May be he should just apply for position of Defense secretary in Romney administration?

my vote goes to Mitt Romney!

I have no time to write for my blog: business is going very well and takes all my time. However few notes I have to post. As a Floridian republican I am going to vote in Florida Republican primary tomorrow and my vote goes to Mitt Romney!
Why not McCain?
Because , in addtion to everything I wrote previously( here and here):
1.
McCain’s attack on Romney with accusations that Romney has a timetable for withdrawal : it is a lie. And it is disgusting when a candidate such a McCain, who built a campaign on “higher than others moral ground” is lying. The fact that Romney is willing to discuss an end of Iraq war (not a timetable!!!) is a very good sign for me. It shows that Romney is a real pragmatist and as such he sees that we have a mission in Iraq and as long as soon as that mission is completed, we have no further business there. Romney is not for capitulation, Romney is not for withdrawal due to ideology. Romney is for victorious end of the war, is anything wrong with ending the war victoriously and going home? McCain wants us to stay in Iraq forever and wants our troops to serve and protect Iraqis (which is very silly in my view). I do not want our troops there in harms ways serving Iraqis. So Romney position is clear: get the job done, take care of results and then get out!
2. McCain is continuously mocking the fact that Romney is rich and therefore spending his wealth for elections. Since when it is a stigma to be rich in America?
I am for Romney because:

• Romney is smart, unlike McCain (who was  ranked fifth from the bottom in a class of about 800 graduates) Romney was a brilliant student

graduated from a joint Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration program coordinated between Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School. He graduated cum laude from the law school and was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent of his business school class. McCain, on other hand, graduated near the bottom of his class from Annapolis Naval Academy. (read more)

• Romney is successful, he is campaigning in depth and seriously (unlike Thompson and Giuliani).
• Romney is a man of moral convictions and does not play with his faith as McCain does: today McCain is “Episcopalian,” tomorrow Baptist, after tomorrow he might be a Mormon.
• He is a successful guy and a proven manager (which by definition make him an excellent leader) as I wrote previously. I see no contradiction between leader and manager.

If not Mitt Romney who can be a better president ?

McCain versus me

How McCain lost me:

#1 New York times endorsement is the real kiss off death. I will never associate myself with a person endorsed by NY times.

#2 global warming: he speaks of global warming? Let Al Gore vote for him!!!

#3 leadership versus management ? This thing is really killing me ! Anybody who has at least a slightest understanding of management can comprehend the fact that any good manager is a leader, otherwise he/she is not a manager. Since when being a manager contradicts being a leader? You want to be a leader but not a manager? Like who? Like Ayatollah? Furer? Like tribal chief?

Fox TV debates

OK debates are over. Whom do I like?

None of them! All of them said smart things occasionally (even Paul: about not sending money to Arabs). But none of them have an articulated position which would make me sure that they are ready for dealing with today’s problems.

I will have to vote for one of them because on the other side (democrats) are certified demagogues with no practical experience at all.

Is it not funny how Democrats are picking on the record of Rudy Giuliani and/or Mike Huckabee? Democrats are in excellent position to criticize. They themselves made no mistakes because they never did anything. What Obama or Edwards accomplished other than speeches? Speech about two Americas, Speech about change in America, Speech about two changes in one America, Speech about multiple Americas with many changes… you pick, your choice. But what other than speeches? OK, Obama you are asking for change. Is not a time to change a tune, Obama?

I would say republicans suppose they have an easy target. Against them are a bunch of well trained certified demagogues with no accomplishments and experience. But republicans seem not ready to get this target. Not yet. I start looking on Romney, since “my guy” Duncan Hunter is out.

This guy at least has a proven economic/business accomplishments.

McCain versus Romney

Everybody is against Mitt Romney!

Is it fair?

May be so. May be not. I did not shape my opinion yet.

But what I definitely do not like is that John McCain (whom I respect tremendously for his stance for our troops and for his service for our country) unfortunately, one more time, is going against free speech.

Tell me please, senator McCain, what is a “negative campaign”?

I think a campaign ad or a statement could be either right or wrong. I do not care if it is “positive” or “negative”. I need to know if it is correct or wrong. Let me decide if it is positive or negative.

In general , my biggest problem with John McCain is his permanent opposition to free speech.

I did support Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in 2004 . I was appalled that John McCain went against those veterans. Why? These are veterans of the war, same as he is. These are US citizens who have the right to speak their mind. You think they were wrong? Argue with them! You think they were lying? Then sue them!

But do not try to shut them up just in order to be nice. It is a very distorted sense of nobility.

And here we go again with Romney. If Romney lied, then sue him. If Romney is wrong, then correct him! But stop this whining about negative campaigning! Positive campaign is an oxymoron.

By the way, Mr. McCain, do not you think that permanent complaining about campaign’s negativity is a form of negative campaign of its own?

Besides, Mr. McCain was filibustering Mr. Romney all the time. Do not you think so?

One more thing: John McCain’s pinches toward to Romney’s fortunes are annoying as well. Since when in the USA is it a crime to be rich?

The more they attack Romney, the better he looks.
