Mitt Romney is applying for a job. The highest office in the land. He is interviewing with ALL the American People, not just the "American People" that Republicans refer to in code.
It's customary to answer questions asked in an interview. So what's his problem with this?
Now, it seems to me, that if part of that application process requires that he tell the truth, reveal his plans, and make public 6-12 years of tax returns, as have other applicants (candidates) in the past, he should have not problem fulfilling these requirements and answering our questions, in full, and truthfully, if he wants to be seriously considered for the job. If he is unable to fulfill these informational requests, we should look further in our search for a more serious, and committed candidate for this job.
Obama, the other candidate for the position, and its current holder, had no problem providing all this information. In fact, he wrote a book. Now, some of the "American People" (see reference above) have expressed their severe trouble understanding his birth certificate, which, up til now, none of us have ever heard of with respect to the application process before. Surely, it used to be a matter of preliminary application requirements, but boy, it's been a really big deal even after he actually got hired (elected) for the job. And since he has almost four years experience, and has fulfilled all the information requests, he certainly is a good fit for the upcoming position.
It also occurs to me that, as of this current recess, Congress, especially the Republican majority House, left several major bills unfinished before they took their vacation. I haven't worked for every company, but I've never known anyone who worked for several months on large projects and then just up and left for vacation while leaving them all up in the air - projects which are directly related to the smooth running of the "business" we call government.
So I'm wondering out loud here, if we shouldn't back bill the Tea Party obstructionists and Republicans who stood by while this obstruction took place, for services NOT rendered, and goals not reached in a reasonable amount of time.
That's all. I just think it's all upside down. The last time we had a major entity go upside down - the housing market - most of the American People lost big in some way - jobs, homes, credit, education, basics like food, shelter, heat, and medical, and maybe, just maybe, we need to insist that our EMPLOYEES start doing the jobs they said they could and would do, and for which they have now been paid in advance. Do the American People - ALL the American People - really want another upside down situation in their government at this time in history?
I for one, do not.
