Wow; the first two commenters seem to represent good examples of tunnel vision. Mr. Romney is a decent man, though I am concerned about many of the things he seems to (now) espouse which would perpetuate, if not worsen, the income and wealth disparity which has plagued this nation for the past few decades. While President Obama is flawed, so are all past Presidents, but those who imagine him left-wing don't even understand what that means in terms of performance. His failure seems to be based in a mistaken belief that he could negotiate with a House of Representatives whose extremist fringe seemed hell-bent on destruction of our nation, as long as they could also destroy the incumbent President. That was "Job #1" for the so-called Tea Party fanatics. I am anxious to see whether Mr. Romny will surprise us with his selection of a nominee for Vice President. John McCain -- whom I supported in 2000, but not in 2008 -- made a big mistake in his selection of someone who would have been a disaster for this nation if Mr. McCain was unable to complete his term. Perhaps Mr. Romney will be wiser, and then offer us a chance to consider reasonable alternatives for the Presidential model. After all, many Presidents acted differently when in Office, than their campaign pronouncements would have led us to expect. Romney could well become the moderate and centrist President that we need, but the first big indicator will be in whom he places his trust for a VP-nominee.

I'm afraid I can't share your optimism that Romney may pleasantly surprise us with his moderate side; but I hope that I'm wrong, as it would be nice to have a good choice in this election. Obama has been a little disappointing, but the Republican Party's horror show of the past several months makes me wonder how the party of Eisenhower and Reagan has stumbled so badly into looney land. Unless Romney does a big turnaround to American centrism (and I'm not sure how much I could trust him for that), I'll be forced to support Obama, who actually has been a Grade B President overall; I'd grade him A+ on military and foreign policy, B on protecting the health and education of Americans and their children, and C+ on economic matters, noting that he would have been a B+ for economic matters if the Republicans in Congress had not stonewalled him every chance they got.
