[QUOTE="Ace6301"]As I said I don't think Romney has beliefs. I think he's willing to do whatever benefits him the most, that isn't exactly a trait that is desired in a candidate. The heritage foundation drafted the ideas for these healthcare plans which are more centrist than many policies they would ever desire but lean more right than left. Obama is capable of negotiation as well, he's tried in the past. Obamacare was a a negotiation and in fact the Republicans got quite a bit of what they wanted in it. However the Republican congress doesn't want anything to do with Obama and wont vote on things that they want to pass because it's been brought up by him. If Romney starts acting in ways that they dislike they'll lock him out just like they have Obama, party name or not. Romney also has an anchor to the ultra conservative side of things, his VP hopeful Ryan.sSubZerOo
I don't think Romney has beliefs either.
Saying Obama's capable of negotiation, and that he's tried are different statements. He's tried, sure, but he's failed. You then say, well republicans, republicans will reject him blah blah blah!
But somehow, Clinton got down and dirty and managed to negotiate and work with Republicans. Obama can't. That's a fact at this point. Romney HAS at one point worked with deomocrats.
Now, will he work with them again? I don't know. He might not. You're right, we don't KNOW what the hell he believes.
But history has a tendency to repeat itself. So Obama's failure to get Republican support and Romney's success at getting democrat and republican support really seems to lend credibility to Romney. Maybe Obama will do a great job next term, I don't know. But history repeats itself.
That is hardly Obama's fault, Clinton didn't have a house majority leader saying that their goal was to get him out of office.. This is not even the same.. The Republicans in these past 10 years have become batsh!t crazy and have been hijacked by the tea party.. This is not the same Republican party in office than the one during the 90s..Sure it is. The only difference is that Clinton was willing to be nothing more than a Dick Morris puppet.
