I woke up this morning, with the images of Sandy's fury top of mind and then quickly, as with most mornings this past month, my mind shifted to the US Presidential elections. The stakes couldn't be higher, and I'm going to say that the storm has nothing and everything to do with it!
For any of my readers that think my absence from the political conversation here meant in anyway that I had disengaged, it is just the opposite. For the record, these blue eyes (((which are actually green ;))), have never been bluer. We are far down the path of this campaign, and I have reserved my rants for my Facebook page (((I think that may have been a mistake, but it's too late now!))).
The candidacy of Mitt Romney has more or less left me speechless (((well kind of))). As the current governor of my state of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick said at the Democratic National Convention last month about his predecessor Mitt...
"he was more interested in having the job than doing it"
This is what continues to drive him now. To say and do anything to get the job. Frankly to run a campaign based on disrespect for the American people, and their ability to pay attention to facts and details is shameful (((shame on us, because he's right about this one))) .
The latest has the CEO of Chrysler distributing a letter to employees about the lies of Mitt Romney. Is this not unprecedented? Has a CEO of a corporation needed to do this in the past, ever?
As the images of devastation from Sandy make a lasting impression, I know that having leaders who want to do the job, not just have the job is a must. So is integrity, intelligence and honesty. Let's send Mitt and his many masks packing on November 6th!
