You have to keep a little perspective; the GOP screwed up and voted McCain over Romney in '08, as they did when they voted Ford over Reagan back when. To err is human. We got stuck with Carter then, as we have with Obama now. Like the second time around with Reagan, the GOP finally got it right with Romney. In due time we will begin to get back on track when we vote Romney in along with a Republican-controlled Congress;

He stepped into Mass. when they had a massive deficit and turned it into a massive surplus while honing government, growing the private sector, keeping unemployment below a low national average, lowering taxes 19 times, and balancing the budget each year, while having to deal with an 85% liberal legislature.

REMARKABLE, just like his business and Olympics successes.

Keep in mind that anybody can promise the moon when running for office, but delivering the promise is another story, which is why there are so many broken political promises.

Here's his plan so you can see what he has in mind. It's a good, doable plan. One that can be accepted by the general election voters, as well as Congress:

RomneyCare was an act of conservatism, which is why the very conservative Heritage Foundation sanctioned it.

RomneyCare only affected a small percentage (8%) of the population, making them buy insurance rather than continue to run up exorbitant emergency room bills on their fellow tax payers.

Do not confuse RomneyCare with Mass. Health, which is a Medicare plus program that receives federal money and marching orders like all states do.

RINO tendencies?

Romney is the most conservative of all the candidates he went up against. His record proves that fact, and theirs prove theirs.

Not only has Romney governed conservatively, he walked the talk in his private life.

There has been much ado about the very real possibility of a Romney-Portman GOP ticket, but of course, both Gov. Romney and Sen. Portman suffer the constant slings of arrows of being too "vanilla," "boring," "WASP-y," etcetera, especially from the media-and-entertainment industry -- the other night, Stephen Colbert dubbed the potential pairing as "the bland leading the bland." But, considering the situation in which we've landed ourselves by electing our young, edgy, Barry-from-the-block as celebrity-in-chief... I don't think "lacking charisma" exactly tops many people's lists...
