Hypocrite Mit, the Pander Bear

The vile former Governor of Massachusetts, Mit Romney, or as I like to call him, 'Monster Head', has announced his run for the Presidency. I really, really dislike him. Admittedly I disagree with the twisted beliefs of most political conservatives, since for the most part they go against the principals of America, (equality, freedom, liberty and justice for ALL). But even so, they generally truly believe in their own misguided notions.

Mit Romney on the other hand, simply adopts these misguided positions to rally support for himself. His stance on issues change with his political goals. He has flip-flopped on the issue of abortion, going from promising to not change the laws to claiming he is pro-life. He says that in this country "we have cheapened the value of human life so much that he needs to make it clear he is 100% pro-life." This is out of the mouth of someone who supports the war in Iraq.

He also once said that he supports rights and equality for gays and lesbians. Yet as one of his very last acts as Governor he did all he could to eventually get same-sex marriage overturned in Massachusetts. An act that only served as a way to pander to the religious right when the issue of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts is brought up on the campaign trail.

At the end of his interview on NBC's Today Show, he said that Americans want a person of faith to lead the country, and that he believes in God and he has the values for the country. We have suffered the results of a president elected on his supposed faith and values. We aren't electing a Pope, folks. It's time we elect a president based on competence and intelligence and leave faith and 'value' to religious leaders.
