Mitt Romney Endorsement
As we near the November of an election year, the choice of who will be our next president will weigh on the American conscience. The last few presidential elections have been marked by candidates that force the average American to choose between the lesser of two evils; to suspend his or her hopes of a better nation in forced compromise. This election is different. With his experience in the private sector and ability to bring people together, Mitt Romney is a man whom we will vote for with confidence and pride. For this reason, the square endorses Mitt Romney for President and recommends that you cast your vote for him.
Running the U.S. government is exactly like being the boss of a major private sector organization. Both involve people and sometimes having to make decisions. But as president you get your own private helicopter. A successful businessman is a person who constantly considers the well-being of average Americans and is used to navigating an inefficient bureaucracy. Take for example Mr. Romney's success in running the 2002 Olympic Games. His modestly titled "Turnaround: Crisis, Leadership and the Olympic Games," published by Regnery Publishing (marked by a history of honesty and political respect, such as their exposure that John Kerry won two purple hearts in Vietnam for self-inflicted wounds) tells of how Romney "took the gold" while saving an event that millions of Americans rely on for their access to education, healthcare, and obscure ice sports. We know we'll never forget where we were when Norway won the men's curling competition.
Unlike most politicians, Mr. Romney is not afraid to say what the people want him to say. When he was governor of Massachusetts, often considered the most liberal state, Romney did not shy from endorsing abortion rights and universal healthcare. Now that he seeks the presidency and must appeal to a more conservative voter base, Mr. Romney has fearlessly repudiated his earlier pro-life stance and position on the private insurance industry. While some naysayers complain that such a major shift on important political issues is the sign of a "flip-flopper," we believe it is the mark of a great man who wishes to change America. Having ideas in which you deeply believe is a function of old politics and the sign of times that we are trying to move beyond.
Romney is also a realist. He realizes the threat that Islamofascism poses to the universal values of the United States, and that to defeat these evil-doers we must go to their turf and fight them there. After all, Mr. Romney realizes that by simply adding the word "fascist" to something, you are immediately fighting the greatest evil of all time. (Just ask Jonah Goldberg.) Mr. Romney also acknowledges the danger that Iran possibly, potentially, one day, maybe, might acquire nuclear weapons. Even if we know that there is no Iranian nuclear weapon development, this does not change the fact that the Iranians are still developing them. This ability to plan for potential future developments, even if no such developments will ever occur, makes Romney stand out among his peers.
The other candidates pale in comparison to Mr. Romney, and the square does not see how a true American could vote for any of them. Mr. McCain thinks that immigrants should take your job, Mrs. Clinton is a communist, and, according to his wife, Mr. Obama has bad morning breath. On November 4th, the square will vote for Mitt Romney.
