Well, where is he? We’re at the edge of the “fiscal cliff,” Obamacare is our mandate, we’re in crisis mode with Israel, the second amendment is under siege, we have Unions bought and paid for by the President, and a nuclear Iran still looms.
All of this is going on and the “standard bearer” of the Republican brand is nowhere to be found. No mention of him in the media except for a recent lunch with the President. This is strikingly odd behavior from a man that over 59 million people voted for to become the leader of the free world, a man who is vehemently opposed Obama’s policies, and a man who is, essentially, the antithesis of Obama. 59 million Americans hinged their hopes on a man of values and morality, and now these same Americans can’t find him anywhere.
Why is Romney not out there opposing the misguided conception that the rich should pay more? Why is he not chiding the constant spending and the empty promises that go with it? Why is he not advocating and encouraging the movement of the poor and the working poor into the middle class to expand the tax base? Why is he not railing against the millions of illegal immigrants that work here and don’t pay a dime in taxes? Why is he not opposing enemies of the 2nd amendment and their pathetic excuses for evil persons who commit evil acts? Why is he not railing against the lukewarm support the US is giving Israel or the constant war on Israel by Islamists and the media?
Mr. Romney has to come out of hiding. He has to continue the fight. He can’t let the opposition become comfortable.
We want our America to be one that is not in a constant state of war when we don’t have to be. We want our America to have a vibrant economy. We want our America to encourage all classes to strive for greatness and reject handouts from the government. We want our America to not promote divisiveness and derision with its constant class baiting, race baiting, and fairness baiting. Is this possible? Was the election just a brief glimpse into what could have been?
Is that it, Mitt? Did you just tantalize us with fantasies of an America we’ve been dreaming of for twelve years? Was it just a sideshow, a distraction that gave us false hope that we would get our country back?
Maybe that lunch you had with the President said it all. Maybe you’ve raised the white flag. They beat you, so now you’re going to join them? There are 59 million Americans out there that sincerely hope not.
