"I don't know what he'll do on anything," Club for Growth President Chris Chocola told POLITICO. "And that's, that's the concern that people have always had is, you don't truly understand what Mitt Romney is going to do."

They say that like it's a bad thing. He's like Zombo.com; anything is possible.

It's the detail free campaign. He's finally learned that since he changes his position every two seconds, any specifics hurt him, so instead of choosing specific positions or ideas that he should stand for, he's going to refrain from giving ANY specifics for the entire campaign.

Mitt Romney planning out specific details of his Presidency would be kind of like the average Farker planning out specific details of his Johansson/Portman three-way.

Romney practices polyvisionarism.
 
2012-05-27 10:24:27 AM
I would expect a President Romney to remain utter true to his quantum nature. Thus, he would do everything.
And nothing

FTFA: "Chocola clarified: "Whatever he does, it'll be better than what President Obama would do. And that's why conservatives will coalesce around his candidacy."

And there you have the primary reason Republicans are destroying the country. The need for knowledge is secondary to the need for mindless ideological purity and 200% party loyalty.

Obama has been a better "conservative" President than the last two "conservative" Presidents combined but he doesn't have an R by his name and his hair is all kinky and shiat.

Do you explain to your maid what you're going to do at work every day? No.
Do you explain your plans for brand expansion to your limo driver? No.
Do you tell your gardener what investments you are planning to make this week? No.

You expect them to know their place, be respectful, and overall be grateful that you gave them a job. Why would it even OCCUR to Romney that he had to explain to the voters exactly what he was going to do? That's like telling the common stock holders your business plan. Pfft.

Seems to be the norm for republicans these days. Just say whatever to get voted in and then create some sort of crisis to roll back 50 years of worker rights

The fact that folks like Club for Growth are afraid of him makes me think it might not be that bad if he did win. Still I'd hope Obama would win though since I know he will definitely not further the agenda of folks like Club for Growth.

Vision is for observers, and Romney exists in Quantum Political Superposition, and thus only expresses dependent on the viewer...
 
2012-05-27 11:24:03 AM
Because he knows "vision" and specific and passionate policy stances will have nothing to do with his presidency should he be elected. He will be a rubber stamp for the Tea Party. No more, no less.

dumbobruni: this is what farklibs actually believe.


Because it is true. Starting wars and giving arms to our enemies do not make good conservative presidents...however, getting the government to actually be smaller IS something that does make a good conservative/moderate president. that is what the right refuses to acknowledge, that it really isn't about conservative vs. liberal anymore,the fight now is moderate vs. extreme. Obama is the moderate candidate, and the Republican party is run by their extreme wing. Oh yeah, I do realize you are a troll, but I am bored.

Also, THIS. Romney's probably appalled at the thought of having to justify himself to non-millionaires. What is this, Opposite World? Where people wear shoes on their head and hats on their feet and walk around saying goodbye when the arrive and hello when they leave?

Jesus, more Wisconsin whining. It took all of 30 seconds to check Walker's background and see who his financial backers and supporters were. Apparently, Wisconsites were either to lazy or bright enough to do their homework. Here's to hoping you can Walker though.

"When I get rid of... Sarbanes-Oxley"

How are you, Mr. Executive, going to "get rid of" SOX, which passed the House and Senate with overwhelming majorities and was signed into law by GWB? Executive Orders don't work that way.

But I'm sure you'd just love to go back to the days when auditors were also consultants for the companies they audited, or when securities analysts were recommending stocks to a company while also providing their investment banking services.

Ah, those were the days!
 
2012-05-27 11:38:26 AM
This is why I don't think he'll win. Defeating an incumbent requires a combination of the feeling that the country is going in the wrong direction with a dynamic challenger who voters feel has new ideas: Reagan over Carter, Clinton over George H.W. Bush. Romney is a bore, and he's offering up the same "tax cuts for the rich solve everything" derp the Republican Party has been dishing out for years. His message, such as it is, is tired, and he lacks the charisma to make it look like there's more there than there is.

Also, he's a Republican, which should have been more than enough to keep him out of office, if Wisconsinites knew what was good for them.
 
2012-05-27 11:40:22 AM
He doesn't really know why he wants to be president. He doesn't particularly want to improve anything or change the country. He has no real plan for a better future. But being president would be cool ya know? Something to do.

I've had arguments on here with folks who think that SOX hinders business while doing nothing to prevent an Enron.

But then again, any form of regulation hinders business in some way so the best thing to do is get rid of every regulation there is.

Not any whining here, I freely admit we dropped the ball. We got complacent, and it bit us in the ass. And as far as canning him , I hope so as well. But it is harder to get rid of roaches than it is to keep a clean house so they don't infest in the first place. At a minimum I want to get 1-2 seats of the senate back.
But if that is all we get then Walker will become a hero on the national level and they will just be encouraged.

It's not important that he stands for things, it's important that he stands on things. Like soon-to-be closed factory floors, and stairs and such.

So what's his vision then? Taxbongo is an anti-American Islamo-fasci-Communi-Nazi-socialist and Romney isn't?

Rmoney doesn't really need a plan for what to do when he's in office. That will be supplied by his corporate masters when the time comes.

Who needs vision or specifics? It's pretty well understood by Romney and his likely supporters that the basic idea is to reboot the GW Bush years, but with added fervor.
 
2012-05-27 12:12:58 PM
He won't know that until all of his donors are finished bribing him.

And won
