Mitt Romney: Independent Thinker or Opening Act for President Obama

Mitt Romney is excellent at giving negative feedback on remarks made by President Obama. He appears sharp, quick wit and even displays a sense of humor but when you corner Romney on specifics, the room is suddenly silent.

Why it is that Mitt Romney can energize an auditorium of people and have them clapping and cheering him on, yet five minutes after the party is over, they can’t tell you one specific problem that Romney addressed. Why, maybe because, Mitt Romney is a good “cheerleader” but not a “leader.”

A good cheerleader or opening act can work a crowd and get them emotionally charged for the main event. Once the main performer hits the stage, the cheerleaders’ job is done. While it is entertaining for someone to come and work the crowd, it is the featured speaker or the main attraction that really drew the crowd.

As I’ve watch Mitt Romney take the podium from state to state, I can’t help but feel that he is a “feel good speaker” but lack substance. So, Governor Mitt Romney, I’m calling you out!

The voters want to hear from you, personally, not your comments on something President Obama said or didn’t say!

Romney is good at answering questions in generalities and that was acceptable in the beginning, but at this stage in the race for the White House, it’s time for the registered voters to hear his mission statement and how he plans to accomplish his mission in succinct detail.

Some of the questions I’m sure that the voters want answered are:

1. What are your plans to turn this economy around? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

2. What are your plans in respect to Healthcare? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

3. What are your plans concerning banks and their inability to work with struggling homeowners, while taking millions and in some cases billions of dollars from the government? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

4. What are your plans concerning social programs such as: Medicaid & Medicare, Social Security and others? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

5. What are your plans concerning the military and their families? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

6. What are your plans to stimulate job growth? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

7. What are your plans concerning immigration? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

8. What are your plans concerning student loans? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

9. What are your plans to show that you can and will represent the 47% of people, whom you feel pays no federal taxes? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

10. In one sentence, what would you say to the voters to convince them that you are the right man for the highest position in the land? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.
