An ‘echo’ candidate may not be the road to how for Republicans

September 24, 2011

As a conservative Republican, well aware that those of my persuasion are more often than not given short-shrift by so-called county-club Republicans — also known as establishment Republicans — why should I have been surprised after watching the Fox News-sponsored debate of Thursday, September 22, to observe how two former governors, Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Rick Perry of Texas, were once again promoted by the media and Republican pundits as the leading two contenders out of nine to duke it out for the chance to go up against President Barack Obama in the 2012 elections?

Truth be I wasn’t, but I’m not happy with how things are unfolding. Both former governors Mitt Romney and Rick Perry might be compared to chameleons. Chameleons are able to change color depending on the air.  Romney and Perry both change political messages to suit the occasion.

While governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney took a number of Democratic stances.  He was even pro-choice.  Rick Perry was a Democrat until not all that long ago, which accounts for Perry’s decline among many conservative Republican voters because he gave tuition breaks for children of illegal immigrants to attend state colleges while governor of Texas.

Will voters ever get to know the real Mitt Romney or Rick Perry?

The 2012 elections are of grave importance, for they will determine the direction of this nation and even its survival.

Republicans are definitely taking a chance should they select a presidential candidate who only represents half a loaf.  In these momentous time, Republican voters need a candidate who exhibits a full loaf of Republicanism to move this nation away from its moral and financial depravity, not just an echo candidate.
