The wife of the recently defeated Republican Presidential candidate has declared that if Romney had been elected, there would be no government shutdown.
She opines further that the voters didn’t really get to see the “real” Mitt.
Where to begin?
The very anti-government segment of the partially crazed GOP is thrilled with closing down Washington. Of course, the ramifications spiral throughout the country.
There are current Congressional Representatives who have plotted this for months and know how to frame the shutdown as well as campaign on it as a policy issue in their beyond gerrymandered districts.
Also, the trigger is fungible. If not Obamacare, then the debt ceiling debate a fortnight hence could have brought it all crashing down.
Oh Ann. It is clear that your husband is not of mixed raced but the conservatives of your party hate him almost as much as the President. During the primaries they literally pushed any charlatan to the top of the field before resigning themselves to Mitt as the candidate.
As many of those folks running against Mitt noted, he was the architect of what is called, oh yes Romneycare. This is universal health insurance he crafted and installed in the state where he was governor.
And as President Obama has stated, this served as the blueprint for his legislation.
Finally Ann, it is pretty clear, even if there weren’t microphones, the majority of citizens understood Mitt Romney quite well.
