Romney’s Save America message

Before Mitt Romney made his decision to run for president his wife asked him one question, “Can you really save America?”

Yes, Mitt answered.

He told the same thing to voters in Iowa:


Well, actually, to be specific he said that this election is about saving the soul of America.

I’m not sure if Romney is running for president or if he’s vyying for Joel Osteen’s job. If you boil down their messages, they are preaching the same salvation — the salvation of abundance.

“Our DNA is like the people in Europe, but we excel past them, way beyond them, in terms of abundance in this land because of the principles upon which this nation has been founded,” Mitt says.

You don’t suppose the principles Romney was referring to were the same ones that allows our major corporations to go into other countries and exploit their people, do you?

In other words, the message is move over Europe, we Americans are way better than you. We are richer because we are smarter. We are smarter because we know how to mistreat people and get away with it.

You want to know how to save America?

You do it by breaking the backs of workers in other nations, after you’ve outsourced jobs and left millions in your own country unemployed.

Yay Us.

  • Karen, Well, with all the Republicans I’m around, I try to bend over backwards in what little I gather to put the best construction on what they’re about. At the same time I really believe there is all too much truth in what you say here, perhaps in considering the big picture. I wonder if your upcoming book will enlighten us more on this.

    It’s been said that God made us in God’s image and ever since the great fall we’ve been making God in our image. Local columnist Steve Duin has some comments about the insipid “debate” between local candidates for an open seat in Congress:

    The more money that’s spent on campaigns and scripted debates, it seems, the more silent and numb we become. What do any of the candidates propose to do but remake the country in their own image? And what else can we go on except what they have done in the past?

    Well now, we love Joel Osteen in this family because he actually seems to think – and care, about those in his listening audiences. OK, he is not technically correct about some of the “issues” of the day, but at least he is not sentencing those who are part of his congregations to Hell for not seeing the Bible as he sees it.

    AND, he is not running for elected office. Most of those who are and are religiously motivated seem to understand they are “shepherds” as the people are dumb as sheep.

    Spoken as one who once tended to the sheep on our farm.
