If someone has evidence to show how Romney is going to be ‘so much better’ than Obama, please bring it forward. (and because ‘he says so’ is not evidence – I can show you how he says just about anything to garner support)
How is Romney ‘better’?
We can’t say he’ll end progressive taxation – he’s already said he supports taxing the haves to provide for the have-nots.
We can’t say he won’t be for expanding government, his enacting Romneycare in Massachusetts shows otherwise.
Romney is against:
We can’t say he’ll be better when it comes to ending wars. (Romney on Iraq)
So what is he ‘better’ at????
Some have argued that they don’t want to see Obama appointing new justices to the supreme court. Yet when Obamacare came up for a Supreme court challenge, it was Chief Justice Roberts that cast the swing vote in favor of Obamacare – a Bush appointee. One that was endorsed by none other than Mitt Romney.
Ryan as Romney’s VP Choice
Now we are told that Paul Ryan having been chosen for the role of vice president will make all the difference. We are told he is a conservative’s conservative. The media even portrays him as a radical and extremist. But what does Ryan’s record have to show?
Paul Ryan voted for:
- the auto bailouts
- Medicare expansion
- housing subsidies
- extending unemployment compensation
- a national ID card
- making the Patriot Act permanent
- the NDAA and surveillance without a warrant
- No Child Left Behind
- keeping troops in Iraq indefinitely (and against removing troops from Afghanistan)
- both the 2008 and 2009 stimulus bills
Ryan’s so called ‘extreme’ budget plan doesn’t even seek to balance the federal budget until the year 2045!
Ahhh, but some say ‘he is a supporter of Rand’ or at least that he mentions the ideas of Ayn Rand and brings them into the forefront of national news. Let’s recall how he last chose to spoke of Ayn Rand:
“I later in life learned about what her philosophy was, it’s called Objectivism. It’s something that I completely disagree with.”- Paul Ryan on Real Clear Politics
The best that objectivists can hope for is that Paul Ryan obtaining the position of vice president will lend validity to his assertion that her ideas are not suitable for government.
So I ask again, R&R is better how? More Rationalization and Recidivist politics?
