Do words matter?

“Big business is doing fine in many places – they get the loans they need, they can deal with all the regulation. They know how to find ways to get through the tax code, save money by putting various things in the places where there are low tax havens around the world for their businesses.” – Mitt Romney.

“No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.” – Mitt Romney

” I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was.” – Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney has a plan to turn the economy around. Except for a few vague threats like more tax breaks for millionaires, fewer too big to fail business regulations, and drill, baby drill, not many details. He has a plan to fix the immigration problem. Except he’s given no details at all. He has a plan to fix our foreign relations problems as well. Since the Iraq war is over and we’re finally starting to leave Afghanistan, bin Laden, and Qadhafi are gone, and the Arab Spring is in full-bloom, Romney’s plan is to stand by Israel. And of course, no other details.

In fact, the biggest, strongest, loudest message so far has been, “We DID build that!” Which, unfortunately, proves Obama’s point, that no one single individual can succeed in a vacuüm. Great individual success goes hand-in-hand with great national success. It’s “we”, not “I”.

“Trust me.” Is Romney’s response to everything from his income taxes, to just about every aspect of how he would govern this great land. But why should we?

  1. Always good to vent a little at times. After all, few things matter more than words. :) And I definitely agree with your point about having to say “Trust me” RoSy. This strange little man sounds absolutely awful, like a throwback from the bad old George Dubya days. I certainly hope he and his tea party don’t get anywhere near the Oval Office. Let’s hope the American public sees through the lies/hype. They must be used to it by now, this whole gigantic media circus. I mean, they have to endure it every four years.
