Romney Was Right About Nearly Everything

Romney was right about nearly everything. Obama and the Left tried to make fun of him, to make him seem like he was some sort of dinosaur.  But it's the Left and Obama that are wrong about nearly everything.

Romney was right that ObamaCare would not work and that people would lose their policies. He was right when he criticized Obama for failing to establish a status of forces agreement with Iraq to keep some American security forces in Iraq.  He was right when he said that, if Obama were re-elected, that he wouldn't be able to work with Congress.  He was right that Russia was our biggest geopolitical foe.  He was right in claiming that Obama would further weaken America.  He was right about the economy.  He was right about a managed bankruptcy for GM was a better course of action than the President's screwed-up extortion deal that had unlawful elements. He was right that the GM "rescue" would not save Detroit.

Romney's comment about managed bankruptcy proceedings for GM is timely as GM has now recalled 70%  more cars in 2014 than they sold in 2013, showing that GM continues to be a failed company. 

Obama is (and always will be) wrong about nearly everything.

During the 2012 campaign debates, Romney correctly said the following:
It's [Russia and Putin] a geopolitical foe, and I said in the same -- in the same paragraph I said, and Iran is the greatest national security threat we face. Russia does continue to battle us in the U.N. time and time again. I have clear eyes on this. I'm not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia, or Mr. Putin. And I'm certainly not going to say to him, I'll give you more flexibility after the election. After the election, he'll get more backbone. Number two, with regards to Iraq, you and I agreed I believe that there should be a status of forces agreement.
In Iraq, Romney advised correctly that a status of forces agreement with Iraq (keeping some residual forces) would be necessary to keep the peace there.

Regarding Iraq, from Fox,
"Unfortunately, the president has not taken the action necessary, has not had the foreign policy necessary, to protect our interests overseas or in various parts of the world," Romney told Cavuto. "All of the decisions made in the past put us in very difficult position now, frankly, with very poor options. This is a consequence of a president who did not take the right actions at the time opportunity presented itself.”
Romney would have been a great President -- infinitely better than what the low-information voters handed us.
