    What do you think better describes a potential Romney president?

    1.) I think he'll be a good president

    2.) I don't think he'll be a good president, just an obvious improvement over Obama



    Just let me know what you think and maybe an explanation as to why, thanks :)

    This is only about the 8th thread like this that has been started.

    I'll say go with the Republican with the long fiscal record of private and public success, because everyone knows Libertarianism isn't a real option for anyone.

    I think he COULD be a good president but is definitely an improvement over Obama. I may be just cynical, but I hold out little hope that he'll be much more than that.

    I should've requested grown up answers only.

    Predfan thanks for your input.

    Oh, this wasn't just another Libertarian bait-thread, then?

    LOL

    Simply asking, like the OP says, if you think he'll be a good president or if you think he won't be but will be an improvement.

    Me being a Paul supporter is as relevant to this thread as me liking pretzels.

    Any input or just more hypersensitive hysterics?

    OK. I pick option #1, for reasons described.

    You MUST be a troll by profession, the OP asked a very simple question.

    It definitely quacks like a duck.

    Romney will be a good competent president. He will restore some sense of balance in the regulatory world between the Obama "Crucify 'em!" crowd and business. He has a good record of working across party lines. He is less divisive than Obama, not that it wouldn't be hard. In foreign policy he will be pretty Republican conventional, strengthening alliances with traditional allies and seeking to expand US influence.
    I wouldn't look for earth-shattering but competent leadership. And right now that looks pretty good.

    This thread is about as controversial as off white wallpaper.

    Thanks for your explanation.
