Who is Mitt Romney and what does he stand for?

Whether you love President Obama or hate him, most people think they have a pretty good idea who he is and what he stands for, agree or disagree.

Mitt Romney is a completely different story. He's been in politics for 16 years, 4 years as governor of a large state and the rest of the time trying to be president. Yet nobody seems to know anything about him or what he stands for. He's not exactly the most forthcoming individual - he won't talk about his religion or his taxes or how much money he has or how he made it - so many secrets! And he seems to have been on every side of just about every political issue at one time or another.

Who is this guy really... and why does he want to be your president?

He's a socialist running as a conservative. He's a Democrat running as a Republican. He's a Wall Street Elite running as a working man. He's about as center of the road as you can get, just like Obama. Both of them hug the yellow line. Flip a coin and vote.

There's no question unanswered for me. All I need to know is he's not Obama.

Yet nobody seems to know anything about him or what he stands for. He's not exactly the most forthcoming individual - he won't talk about his religion or his taxes or how much money he has or how he made it - so many secrets! And he seems to have been on every side of just about every political issue at one time or another.

Who is this guy really... and why does he want to be your president?
Mitt Romney: Well lets see now.

Religion, he is in the same spot as JFK was over 50 years ago. Back then everyone felt that if he was elected the Pope would be telling him what to do. It was the same in 1928 with Al Smith when he ran against Hoover. People don't trust some religions if they don't know a whole lot about their beliefs. Then their opponents paint a picture that may not be correct and that just adds to their uneasiness. So I can understand why the no comments by Romney

taxes, Who cares. Just because his father released several years worth of returns that doesn't mean Mitt needs to. He has already released two now.

money he has or how he made it, we already know how he made it so that is old news. Now how much? Who cares. He has more than me and not near as much as the Kennedy's or FDR.

secrets, Romney is pretty much an open book. Like you said, "He's been in politics for 16 years, 4 years as governor of a large state and the rest of the time trying to be president." So there again it's what his opponents paint as a picture that may not be correct and the Dems just take it as gospel and don't question it.

Now lets talk about the current occupant of the White House:

Religion?, Claims he Never Practiced Islam? - rumor has it he practiced it daily at school, where he was registered as a Muslim and kept that faith for 31 years, until Michelle made him change, so he could run for office. We all know about Rev Wright and what went on in his church.

money he has or how he made it, How does a community organizer afford a $1,000,000 home in Hyde Park on a state senators pay? Who knows how he made his millions. Yes he wrote a couple of books, but? How much he has? Not as much as Romney and more than me.

taxes, Who cares.

secrets, Well lets see. Collage transcripts for starters. How does someone with his then income pay for the name schools he attended. Who's paying the bills early on. and the list goes on.

what he stands for. Marxism–Lenin Socialism

Completely idiotic and illogical. Mormonism is a nutso religion, so your comparison to Kennedy is nonsensical. Obama's a protestant Christian. Your stupid rumors were put to rest years ago. His college (that's how It's spelled) transcripts? Not relevant, haven't seen Romney's either. Romney's taxes - relevant. We care, just release them.
Obama's income, try law professor for starters. And the socialist rant is also painfully played out. Saying it just proves your ignorance.

You just proved my point. You have a lot of specific information about Barack Obama; mostly regurgitated right wing blogosphere fodder, but I accept that it's what you believe.

But you didn't answer one single question about Mitt Romney...

I'm still waiting for an answer to my questions:

Who is Mitt Romney really?

What does Mitt Romney stand for?

Why does he want to be president?

As a Number: 5 you really do not have much to say since atheism is really completely idiotic, illogical and nutso (BTW nutso is not a word)

Professor Of Law - NOT EXACTLY; was a senior lecturer.
Constitutional Lawyer - NOT EXACTLY, again was a senior lecturer.

After 16 years and we know more about him than we still know about the guy in the WH now. Unless you have been in a cave for the last several years he has been an open book. He has a record. That's more than O had before he came to office.

Why does he want to be president? That's a good question. Why would anyone in their right mind want that job. The "Buck Stops there". Or at least it did before O

Don't get me started on politicians and religion. No matter what religion a politician claims to believe, they all act like amoral egoists. They do what is beneficial to themselves regardless of the damage it may cause the country or its citizens.

I'd much rather have someone in office who accepts responsibility for his or her own actions and doesn't subscribe to "divine guidance."

Adjunct professor--essentially a substitute teacher when real academics get bored and want their kids to hear about....community organizing? Is there anybody that remembers him leading a class?
