A View from the Altar / Election 2012, with the West hanging in the balanace, it’s still evil vs. stupid
Skip to content

Election 2012, with the West hanging in the balanace, it’s still evil vs. stupid

Now that Mitt Romney has secured the GOP nomination, he’s backtracking on his promises to repeal ObamaCare.  As recently as June 28 of this year — before the convention — Romney was still vowing to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare.  Now that he’s the official nominee, he’s saying he will not repeal it, at least not all of it.

Now we have to divine the causes of his change.  Why did he promise to repeal it in the first place?  Was it merely to tickle the ears of suckers on the right or did he actually see a problem somewhere?  And which parts of ObamaCare will be left in force?  Will he retain the 16,000 new IRS agents and the countless multitudes of regulations which still nobody understands?

And why is he backtracking now?  If he’s fishing for sucker votes on the left, he should realize that there are no words that could ever draw the hard core grifters away from the Democrats.  The Democrat Party is the natural habitat for every species of social deviancy.  They simply won’t vote for a GOP candidate no matter what.  In terms of electoral success in November, there is  nothing for Mr. Romney to gain by selling out his support on the right.

Besides, if he’ll renege on his campaign promises before he’s even elected, what would he do after?

The keystone to Obama’s “radical transformation” of America into a socialist welfare state is ObamaCare.  If Mr. Romney doesn’t grasp why this is so, then why would anyone on the right want him to be president?  And that’s a serious question.  While I certainly understand why the nation needs to be rid of Mr. Obama’s baneful influence in the White House, fact is we won’t be rid of it as long as his signature legislative accomplishment remains on the books.

Put me down as one of the many Constitutional Conservatives yearning intently for Mr. Obama’s departure.  But I see no point in wasting casting a vote for a man who represents no genuine improvement.

  1. Ouch! I wouldn’t say, based on that article, that he is backtracking on an earlier promise. I don’t think there’s enough info there to come to that conclusion..?

    I beg to differ ; I think Romney does have a grasp on our deplorable welfare state and the need to give small businesses incentives, rather than more red tape, to brace the middle class. If nothing else, I thought you’d find a savy business man in Romney…

    You wrote: “The Democrat Party is the natural habitat for every species of social deviancy.” LOL ~ that would make a great bumper sticker ; ‘ )

  2. I hope you’re right. I hope Obama goes, and I hope Romney is better. But I’ve been chary about Mr. Romney from the get-go. Example: http://www.otherbrothersteve.com/2011/06/romney-on-abortion/
