In reading David Babbitt's letter to the editor which appeared in the Monday, Oct. 15, edition, I was impressed with his biographical sketch of Mitt Romney. The only things lacking were a large red "S" tattooed on Mr. Romney's chest and of course a "halo."
If Mr. Romney were a Catholic instead of a Mormon, he would surely be a candidate for canonization. Being a diabetic, I didn't realize at the time, the risk I was taking when reading the sketch.
But who is the "real Mitt Romney?"
Today he might be the ultra conservative right winger obeying the rules of the Republican Party hierarchy. Tomorrow he might be the moderate Mitt Romney trying to appease whichever audience he is addressing.
For example: in his first TV debate with President Obama, he said his health plan included covering pre-existing conditions. Immediately following the debate, his campaign office issued a release retracting that statement. I think the team is "flip-flopping." The American public is not stupid Mr. Babbitt. They can see through Mr. Romney's stated falsehoods which his campaign office refers to as misstatements.
Mr. Babbitt mentions Mr. Romney's association with Bain Capital but he fails to mention Bain's "modus operandi," but there are many other things he fails to mention.
Like for what reason would a person running to be elected to the highest office of the United States of America have bank accounts in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands?
In Mr. Babbitt's summation he states: "Mitt Romney will show us his birth certificate, his college transcripts, his income tax records.
He will show he has nothing to hide. Sounds like the kind of man I would like for President. He gets my vote."
It sounds to me like we already have that man as our president.
President Obama gets my vote for re-election.
