Doesn’t support Romney for POTUS

A lot has been said about the contemptible 47 percent remark Mr. Romney made at a private fundraiser.

When a politician makes a remark in a private (and/or unguarded) moment, it is probably what he really believes, not whatever his handlers come out with afterward to “correct.”

Mr. Romney’s staff has, on numerous occasions, had to issue statements after Mr. Romney “misspoke,” stating that he really didn’t mean what he said. Can we trust a man who can’t remember what he said yesterday? Can we trust the organization running the man?

Can we trust a man whose position changes depending upon who he is speaking to? Can we trust someone who is as volatile and hyper  as Mr. Romney is to act rationally in an international crisis?

Mr. Romney is a vulture capitalist. He likes to make money at the expense of others and dodge as many taxes as he can in the process. This is his game and he is good at it. The only reason he wants to be president is so he can make more money by “being in charge” and setting tax, trade and social policy.

Do we really want the king of greed to be our world leader?
