Romney's new mission: To change perceptions

Washington (CNN) - On paper, Republican Mitt Romney seems to be the candidate's candidate.

The son of a former governor, Romney has demonstrated that he can raise swells of campaign cash - and has the name recognition that helps place him high in presidential preference polls.

    In the last presidential election, Romney was asked why none of his sons
    were serving their country in the military. Romney claimed that his sons
    were serving their country by helping him run for President.

    Don't you think that is about as egotistical of a statement that could be
    made? How do you think the parents , wives, children, and all loved
    ones of fallen and wounded soldiers would feel if this statement was
    replayed. It is amazing how privilege in this country determines ones

    How can Romney talks about small business need confidence to hire, and at the same time cutting their one stable revenue source, government money. The way this economy is today, small businesses depend mightily on government related revenue, because private businesses are not stable enough to be reliable revenue source, since the economy is unstable as it is right now. You take away their food stamp, social security, government workers and welfare revenue sources, you are taking away the one stable revenue source they rely on every week to pay their bills, keep their workers, and keep them a float. private business revenues are toppings on the cake, sometimes they're here next time they're gone, depending on the economical situation.

    Romney has a lot of work to do. He comes off like a power-hungry opportunist who will do, say, and spend anything needed to get elected. Frankly, I don't what his postion is on anything becuase he keeps changing it.
