And the Winner Is…

7 Jun

Everyone knows I inherited the family fortune. (A distant relative of mine invented the tablespoon.) So I understand how hard it’s been for Mitt Romney, whose daddy was both rich and powerful. Recent polls show the former Governor beating Barack Obama head-to-head. Hell, I’d even consider voting for a guy who gave universal healthcare to his state and supports women’s rights.

Romney has played it perfectly so far, by not talking very much. His strategy is brilliant: Let Gingrich implode on Meet the Press, let Pawlenty screw up a softball question about abortion, and let Sarah Palin, well, be Sarah Palin.

Of course, the election is still a long way’s off, but these numbers are significant. Just like four years ago, when Hillary Clinton held an insurmountable lead over Rudy Giuliani…

    The problem is he is running away from the universal health care that he created for his state that WORKS & everyone there LOVES! Why? Cause his party doesn’t want “socialized” medicine (which means we’d have to get rid of VA health care for Vets and medicare for old people). Frankly, I don’t care if ya call it socialized, or universal or free – this country needs health care for all. It’s immoral to let people be sick or die all in the name of greed. For a nation who claims to be Christian – that is one thing Christ would be appalled at. If Mitt would run on his record and what good he’s done instead of trying to hide from it I’d maybe jump ship and consider voting his way. But not when he tries to hide from a successful plan just cuz his old rich party cronies don’t want the health care for all that they get, usually for free. I can’t understand why republicans want people to be sick or die if they are poor. Guess we take up too much space at the mall or something and that irritates them.

      Spot-on with the Christian point. You know, the debate over whether healthcare is a right or a privilege is a false choice. It’s a necessity.
