    rash, entitled. Has poor judgment too. Just like GWB.

    And since GWB, wars are great excuses for budget crunches and austerity.

    •  Then you are misjudging him (0+ / 0-)

      For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus

        I think you are woefully ill informed about Romney's foreign policy.  His advisers include Kagan, Senor, Bolton, and some of the most activist and aggressive foreign policy flunkies in the world today.  Good Lord -- they could not even brief the man properly on Libya.  Someone who chooses those people and goes for the Kill -- based on the wrong information -- during a debate is, BY DEFINITION, NOT FUCKING CAUTIOUS.   What if this is how he handled a real world crisis?  He would be briefed erroneously by  fact-free ideologues and go for the kill on a matter of national security with potentially dire consequences for the rest of us.  

        I vote Democratic because I am a woman with self-respect , who rejects bigotry of all kinds, subscribes to science, believes in universal health care, embraces unions, and endorses smart internationalist foreign policy.

        For the 8 years of GWB - and the resulting political and financial cost to the US and to the global economy - I don't want to trust anyone who has taken multiple positions on most issues and someone that has surrounded himself with the likes of Senor, Bolton and Cheney.

        I cannot trust a neo-con with the nuclear code.  Too many of our brothers, sisters, sons and daughters have died in recent wars.   Enough of the bravado and machismo - this is the 21st Century - the neo-con agenda from the Reagan era should have been interred decades ago.

        I see you are defending him Anne Elk... I would have listened to your argument if Mitt Romney had run an honest campaign.   He has not.  He is a panderer, a bullshitter. He does not represent one of my core values - integrity.   He fails my test for POTUS.

        Just a small-minded 'merican that wants to see the Romney 2009 FBAR
