Should Mitt Quit?

Last week the Concord Monitor ran an editorial headlined "Romney should not be the next President". I agree with many of the points they posted. I also read another article which talked about the truth of Mitt's Olympic turnaround. It gave data on how much tax money was pumped into the Salt Lake City Olympics to avert a predicted $400 million deficit due to corruption and poor management prior to Mitt taking over. If you define good management as getting some $250 million in public money to bail you out, it looks like Mitt is your man.

On the other hand, if straight speaking and honesty are your hot buttons, Mitt is not the man. I am just having a hard time equating Mitt's stated position as a Christian with the comments he is making on the stump. I suppose I should be encouraged that he is an equal opportunity distorter, making the same kind of comments about any candidate that is close in the polls. Is this the kind of person we want as President? Haven't the last eight years taught us anything?
