It is time to filter out the candidates asking for your money and the right to visit New Hampshire and Iowa in 2012. The Valley will help you save your funds for candidates who can win.
Even though I've already endorsed, that post was just my declaration, these posts are to help guide your way.
Now, why should Former Governor Romney not get your money or vote for 2012? Let me count the ways.....
1) Even though he put together a State Health care plan (which has troubles), it would be a line of attack from President Obama. The attack ad would be: Former Governor Romney supports Government Run Health Care for Massachusetts, why not for you?
Even though a core belief on the Right is State's know better then Federal, it is an easy attack.
2) His coattails do not go beyond Massachusetts. His State organization helped Senator Scott Brown. Can you name any candidate from the other 49 states that Governor Romney put into office? No? Neither can I.
3) When it came time to stand up for other Republicans under fire, he was silent -- nor can he fight back. I talk of the investigations by Dan Riehl and Robert Stacy Mc Cain into the funding of Liberal Alaskan Bloggers using the ethics charges against a sitting Governor. (The current Republican Governor of Alaksa has no charges filed against him. Why? Palin was the target).
Google "Mitt Romney," and "Governor Palin ethics charges," There are no statements in support of Palin by Romney during this time. In fact, nothing can be found. NO-THING. Even though all the charges were thrown out, Former Governor Romney did not stand up.
Also, does anyone know of Governor Romney standing up to the current Administration? Any quotes that have been cited and re-used? Again, he never had to fight. When the Democrats hit below the belt (and they will), can Governor Romney fight back?
Hint: He isn't fighting now.
My question: Tell me why I am wrong about Romney.
