"I would never be so prideful as to judge Mitt Romney as a man, but I feel very comfortable judging him as a politician.

During the Republican primaries, Mr. Romney stood on the stage with the likes of Newt Gingrich and Michelle Bachman and Hermain Cain and raised his hand in support of every restriction of women's choice that was offered.

Mr. Romney raised his hand in support for every anti-immegration idea that was offered.

Mr. Romney raised his hand in support of every tax cut for the richest of the rich.

Then Mr. Romney went behind closed doors and disparaged the poorest of the poorest of the poor.

Mr. Romney now claims that he has no agenda on abortion, or on immigration; that he is not suggesting lowering taxes for the wealthiest Americans and that he cares, deeply, about the least fortunate in this country.

Like I said, I won't judge him as a man.

But as a politician, no one knows what he REALLY stands for.

And I'm not sure HE even knows what he stands for, other than getting elected.

And for that reason alone I wholeheartedly believe that he is the wrong man to be President of the United States of America."

Jeffrey Lieber, respectfully, trying to will words into the mind of our President.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
