    Do I think he would be as good as Obama? I dunno. But I don't think the US would go to hell in a handbasket if he got the nod.

    I also think he is less polarising than Bush and Obama..

    Might find some common ground. What helps is that he actually not the ideal candidate for die hard republicans and conservatives...so there is that...

    He could even border on being a RINO...

    He'll be an excellent president since he lacks most of Obama's negatives.
    ROmney is an excellent executive with long experience with authority.
    He is not an ideologue.
    He is not anti business
    He understands how people make money
    He is proud of being an American. Long before the US elected Michelle's husband.
    He will not bow before any foreign ruler.
    He does not demonize those opposed to his views.

    While I might want someone conservative I'll take Romney over the walking disaster we have now.

    Don't know exactly what comment you're fishing for Grump, but compared to the America hating radical we have now, yes, Romney would be better, but that's still not saying Romney would be good either... just better.

    Romney certainly can't be any worse any of the other idiots who have inhabited the White House

    .

    Unless one party walks away with clear control of the White House, Senate and House, I don't know how much "change" can occur. The GOP has very effectively stifled much of what Obama would have done (for better or for worse), and I suspect the Democrats would behave in approximately the same way.

    Perhaps.

    But the problem would be the people whom he’d bring into his administration, the judicial appointments those administrators would make, and the Bush Era policies they would reintroduce, such as ‘nation-building.’
