An Open Letter to Mitt Romney:
First and foremost, I would like you to know that I have always seen you as a snake in the grass, from Day One. I must say though, it’s one thing to know in my gut that someone is a horrible human being, but to actually see and hear you talking freely to your peers takes it to a whole new level. YOU were talking from your heart, your soul…speaking freely how YOU truly feel! We the 47% who support Obama were smacked down and regarded as useless to you! Wow.
I would like you to know, Mr. Romney, I was a President Obama supporter in 2008, and I’m even more so now in 2012. My support for the President is like that of a marriage… I loved him then but I love him even more now 4 years later.
To answer your question, “Am I better off than four years ago?” YES, I am… and I’ll be even better when the 100% President, who represents all of the country, including that 47%, is re-elected this November! I find the President of the 100% to be TRUSTWORTHY, HONEST, PERSONABLE, and CARING. A man truly looking out for the AMERICAN people… not just one core group, but ALL of us!
I personally don’t care, and never have, about a person’s ethnicity, sexual orientation, financial background, etc. If I like you… I like you! I call ‘em like I see ‘em… I call a spade a spade! I personally feel the leader of our country should have a worldwide similar view.
I didn’t agree at all with George Bush’s policies, but taking our differences of politics out of the equation, I find him charming, funny, and full of PERSONALITY. I genuinely feel that I could invite him to a dinner party and really enjoy his company… barring any discussion of politics.
But YOU, Mr. Romney… not so much. From Day One, you came across as INSINCERE, ENTITLED; FAKE, in other words, NOT a good person. You might be, but I have never seen you put your best foot forward. You have NEVER held to ANY core principles, if you have any! You have become all things to all people, with the exception of the 47%… which YOU could care LESS about. A man that once believed a woman had the right to choose, a man that once believed in Universal Healthcare is now… INVISIBLE!
Your remarks regarding the 47% were DEPLORABLE! Then you repeated it later that evening… Are you kidding me? I’m fortunate enough to not have to worry about where my next meal is going to come from. I don’t have to worry about whether I can afford the expensive medications I take for my Multiple Sclerosis, I have good health insurance.
Like most of us 47%, Mr. Romney, my husband PAYS HIGHER TAXES than YOU do! Like MOST of us 47%, my family are proud Americans… ready, willing, and happy to go out to work everyday!
But some aren’t as fortunate and have LOST their JOBS, have SICK children and need ASSISTANCE. They don’t want a handout! Are there some that take advantage? Sure, there is, but the vast majorities are people that have come upon hard times, just trying to get a leg up!
I realize that at any time tragedy could strike in my life and my circumstances could change. That is why I don’t look down on those who are less fortunate. I try to INSPIRE and UPLIFT and HELP. In other words, I have something you and your wife lack and know nothing about… EMPATHY!
For the life of me, I couldn’t understand why someone would choose to vote for you, as opposed to Obama. Ok, forget I just said that. I know why… but remove from the equation that Obama is Black. You yourself know deep down that President Obama is the right guy for the job! It seems as though Presidency to you is just another achievement to check off from a list of accomplishments.
Let me ask you something, being the Bain Capital guy, and all… If you were not in the race, and were given two resumes which ONLY included the information below, WHO would YOU choose for PRESIDENT?
• WORK HISTORY
• TREATMENT OF LESS FORTUNATE
• CONTRIBUTIONS TO SOCIETY
• CHARACTER • VALUES
• FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS
• Hopes for the FUTURE of AMERICA
• Hopes for our AMERICAN youth
The Resumes Outline Lip Service vs. Actual Service.
One resume shows the CANDIDATES only interest was in making MONEY and gaining POWER!
The other resume shows a man that is truly trying to get it right, not just for his CHILDREN’S FUTURE, but for all American children…all American people…Black, White, Brown, Asian, Disabled, Gay, Straight, Fat, Skinny, Rich, Poor.
Ask yourself HONESTLY, who would YOU VOTE FOR?
It amazes me how dishonest and hateful the Right Wing has become since President Obama has received the highest position in the United States. Racist White Americans have always felt threatened by minorities. You can say what you want, but Cantor, McDonnell, Boehner, Ryan, and the rest of the GOP DON’T disagree with President Obama’s POLICIES, especially the Healthcare policy that you basically created, and your party hatefully renamed “ObamaCare”.
The real issue, or should I say ELEPHANT in the room, is that by passing President Obama’s policies, Republicans would have to face their worst nightmare. What is it, you ask?
That President Obama, a BLACK Man, is one HELL of a leader! He’s relatable, intelligent, and has ideas the GOP never even thought of. In fact, if he wasn’t Black, you guys would embrace him with open arms. You would no doubt offer to wash his feet, and praise him as if he was the Second Coming. But you can’t, because after all he is BLACK, given your Party’s disdain for anyone who is different, or shall I say… NOT WHITE!
Nothing upsets a “WHITE is RIGHT” person, who has money and a little power, than to come in contact with a MINORITY that is clearly more POLISHED, SMARTER, LIKABLE, CREATIVE, and HAPPIER in their PERSONAL LIFE than they.
Now don’t get me wrong, not all White Americans are racist, but many are afraid to open their eyes and take a stand for what is right. They would rather listen to the hateful blatant lies of your Republican establishment. People like ” Sarah “Not Relevant” Palin, Michelle “Crazy Eye” Bachmann, Fox News aka “Fixed News”, instead of FACT-CHECKING, RESEARCHING, and using plain COMMON SENSE!
Are you guys so blinded by the “WHITE is RIGHT” mentality that you refuse to own up to the fact, and would rather bring the whole economy down than admit that this President has done more in his three and half years without any support from Congress than the previous President’s eight years?
Never in history has a President been so disrespected! To me, it is clear that bigotry and tainted money is the driving force behind this vilifying! You can refuse to acknowledge it and play it down, but race-baiting is prevalent in your campaign messages.
I’ve known for so long that the GOP motto has been “IF IT’S WHITE… IT’S RIGHT”. But know this Mr. Romney, this is the 21st Century, and America has changed! It isn’t the world you and your minions long for when you guys say ”We need to take this country back”! (Translation: back from the BLACK guy in the White House.) We, as Americans, are a true Melting Pot and we are not listening or buying the bullshit you and YOUR HATE WAR MONGERING MINIONS are trying to SELL!
So continue to sound off your RACIST DOG WHISTLE MESSAGES! We hear you loud and clear! But come November 6, 2012, we will be BLOWING WHISTLES of our own, as we march to the polls… BLACK, WHITE, LATINO, ASIAN, ITALIAN, GREEK, INDIAN, GAY, STRAIGHT, MIDDLE CLASS, POOR, DISABLED, ELDERLY, 1st TIME VOTERS, NEW CITIZENS. We will sound an ALARM in UNISON. We will PRESS the button to RE-ELECT PRESIDENT OBAMA, and at the same time TAKE BACK OUR CONGRESS!
One of my favorite movies as a child, and to this day, is “South Pacific”. There’s a song that rings ever so true. It says “You have to be taught before it’s too late. Before you are 6, 7, or 8… to hate all the people your relatives hate. You have to be carefully taught.” That is so sad, but so true! Do I hate you? No, but I do pity you! By being so narrow-minded, you cut yourself off from a lot of great people!
Mr. Romney, nothing personal… but, this isn’t a Black or White issue! It’s an American issue! We have to elect the person to office that we truly feel is looking out for all of us! Regardless of skin color, economic status, or gender. The person that’s trying to balance things, so that everyone can have a piece of the pie!
A person that genuinely wants to encourage those on welfare that they can do better! Not by criticizing or belittling them, but by giving them hope and a sense of pride. A person truly looking out for the elderly and disabled, and let’s not forget a person looking out for rights of women! A person who will fight for you. I’m not speaking as a Democrat, but as a concerned American with a very good sense of character… and you have beyond a shadow of a doubt proven time and time again that you have zero character! Your talking points at your private, or what you thought was private, fundraiser put your true feelings of what you think of Obama’s Supporters, and sadly some of your supporters, on display for the world to see!
WE SEE YOU MR. ROMNEY!!! THE PICTURE ISN’T GOOD… GIVE A MESSAGE TO YOUR SUPPORTERS FOR ME. IF THEY VALUE THEIR SELF-WORTH, COME ON OVER TO THE DEMOCRAT’S SIDE… WE WON’T JUDGE… WE WANT ALL TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE…WE LOVE EVERYONE!
