I'm not really big on Romney. Given a preference, I'd rather have somebody other than him on the ballot this season. Not Bachman, not Cain, not Perry, none of the other Republican's who battled it out in the primaries. None of them really impressed me.
But Romney will get my vote for one main reason . . . Obama's gotta go.
I was in a similar position in 2004. I voted for Bush in 2000 because I thought he was the right guy for the job. By 2004, I was a bit ambivalent about Bush. Iraq was probably a big part of that. To be honest, I forget my other reservations about a second Bush term. I had an open mind about Kerry, I was looking for him to give me a reason why he would be better for the job than Bush, I never got one. His whole campaign was centered around "I'm not Bush". I voted for Bush again.
Some might argue that that's exactly what Romney is doing this year. And maybe that's true. But because my dissatisfaction with Obama is so much stronger than was my ambivalence about Bush eight years ago, "I'm not Obama" is a good enough reason for me to give Romney my vote.
If he can dismantle Obamacare, that would be fantastic. Obamacare, while it does a lot of good things, is an overall horrible program because of how it does what it does, and also for what it doesn't do.
