    It is singularly unsatisfying to keep reading about Romney's faults here.

    Can we get to the heart of the matter?

    Why shouldn't it be OK to say anything and everything to get elected if it's in what one thinks is a good cause?

    What is the message WE should be sending to voters who need to have their hearts (and minds) moved?

    Recently I read somewhere (lost the link) that the higher echelon is given a pass for making repeated mistakes......It's considered a feature, not a bug, in them.

    I'm grappling with this question:  Must a leader demonstrate a moral core that becomes like the pole star for the nation to follow (to paraphrase the Ancient Chinese Lord Zhou)........
    ..............or can a leader be, say, 'pragmatic'?

    Why isn't Romney's shifting position considered 'open-mindedness'....which might be a good thing.....?

    I'm not defending Romney. I think he's a hypocrite and an air-headed opportunistic front man for some really bad guys.

    I'm just trying to get to 'zinger' of the message that we need to be putting out. Not just hand-wringing and documenting the step-by-step sinking of the Titanic of America's promise.........
