Romney is strong where Bush is weak

By David Alvord

Let me begin by saying that I am a Bush supporter. President Bush has succeeded in cutting taxes, rebuilding the military, defeating the taliban, appointing conservative supreme court justices, foiling terror attacks, and has seriously wounded Al Qaeda world-wide.

Mitt recently commented: "Thank goodness Barack Obama was not our president last year".

Governor Romney has vowed to continue fighting for conservative values and to win the war on terror. If Iraq can succeed in establishing a strong central government that is committed to standing against terror groups, Al Qaeda will be in retreat. We will be closer to our ultimate objective of defeating radical Islam world-wide.

Mitt will continue the calling of this generation and is well equipped to do so because Romney is strong where Bush was weak.

Bush was governor of Texas, where even the democrats are conservative.
Romney was governor of Massachusetts, one of the most liberal states in the union.

While Bush had it easy in Texas, Romney was tested and refined by Massachusetts. Romney learned that the only way you can change the tone in government is by defeating liberals.

I was proud of Mitt when I saw him stand up to the Mass. Supreme court on the issue of gay marriage.

One of the reasons for President Bush's low approval numbers is that he has disappointed conservatives and has allowed congress to spend almost as much as they did during Clinton years. The Bush presidency has been marked by a surprising low number of vetoes.

Romney, on the other hand, has said that "he likes vetoes" and will cap government spending.

President Bush has sometimes had a hard time articulating some conservative policies. Romney will not have that problem. Romney is so good at answering questions that he has the press baffled! All they can say about him is that he is too good or too polished.

Romney will be strong where Bush is weak because he has already sailed in shark-infested liberal waters and still succeeded in promoting a conservative agenda. If Governor Romney was able to do so much in Massachusetts, think of the possibilities of a President Romney, where no longer will he be that red speck in a sea of blue.
