Most People Like to Fire the Same People Romney Does

I find it extremely disappointing that so-called conservatives have jumped on Mitt Romney about a comment he made about firing people. Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and some others took the comment entirely out of context to score some cheap political points. In their attack from the left they are writing the script for Obama, should Romney win the nomination. I can see Ronald Reagan shake his head and mutter, “Did I teach you nothing?”

If you listen to Romney’s comments in context, they are perfectly reasonable and I know of no reasonable person who would disagree with him. He was talking about a better way of delivering healthcare. Here is what he said.

How many of you are shocked and disgusted with those comments? Who wouldn’t want the ability to fire a service provider who is giving you lousy service? With ObamaCare, you will not have a choice. It will be government-run healthcare for all and we all know how hard it is to fire the government.

To turn these remarks into Rick Perry’s “vulture capitalism,” and Newt Gingrich’s “predatory capitalism,” is shameful. It’s about ObamaCare, stupid. I want to fire Obama and I would like to do so as soon as possible. If I could recall him along with the Chevy Volt he supported with our tax dollars and he was filmed driving, I would gladly do so.

I do not think Romney is a strong conservative and I am having a hard time liking him as the Republican nominee. But Gingrich has dropped the mask of the genial Uncle Newt and has revealed the Nasty Newt that so many who worked with him in Congress give as the reason they can’t back him. Perry has stumbled and fumbled his way to irrelevancy. He should pack up his tent and go back to Texas. With Republicans like this why have an election?

That’s my opinion; I’d like to know yours. Please comment below.
