Why I Call Myself a Romney Democrat

Let’s start with a couple of illustrations, this…

….and this…

My love of politics started as a child and exchanging birthday cards with President Eisenhower, we shared a birth date. Every year I’d buy him a card, scribble Happy Birthday, Your Birth DAY Buddy, Denise and mail it. A few days later, I’d receive a card, totally preprinted and auto-penned, but I still proudly displayed it with the others. It wasn’t until years later I would appreciate that small gesture from the White House staff. Never once was asked for $3.OO or MY birthday presents.

JFK made me a Democrat. He entered the Presidential race as I entered high school and I just loved everything Camelot-y about the Kennedy family. Sadly, we never found out how the world would have turned out had he never been assassinated, but it moved me to political activism (ironically, first as a staffer for a Republican Member of the House shortly after dropping out of college).

Then came love, marriage and the baby carriage x3, so my political hobby became complicated being married to an active duty Marine and the dratted UCMJ, my mouth was duct taped for several years.

Still loved my Dems, Carter, Clinton …. then came the Political Petri-Dish Experiment failure called Obama. There is nothing traditionaly, spiritualy,compassionately or NICE about him (see: Hillary Clinton and her supporters/PUMAs) to support.

I now support Romney Democrats

My name is Anthony, and I’m an Independent who supports Mitt Romney. God, that sounds like I’m at a 12 Step meeting. Maybe its because I live in Manhattan and there aren’t a lot of us who have ‘come out’ here, or maybe its because the MSM has convinced us that we must meet in secret and speak in Pig Latin. Who knows? All I know is I’m not up for any of that bullshit, so I’m ready to come out swinging.

Any of you who might live in Obama Country know how difficult this can be.  Your neighbors, friends and entire state voted overwhelmingly for him in 2008. Now they have buyer’s remorse but don’t have the balls to admit it, so its up to you to break the ice at social gatherings. My advice? Close your eyes, hold your breath and jump in with both feet. Everyone’s going…
