There is little doubt that Romney avoids answering questions out of fear of alienating specific voters or his backers in the Republican Party, but his reticence to take a stand on important issues defines a weak character and lack of resolve a presidential candidate should possess. Romney made matters worse and showed that, besides being a pathological liar, he is a rank hypocrite for demanding that “President Obama level with the American public about his real agenda.” One of the primary reasons many Americans are suspicious of Romney is because, besides his religion, he has never leveled with the American people what his real agenda is other than transforming government into a private enterprise to enrich himself and his wealthy elite cohorts.
First, President Obama has leveled with the American people from the time before he was elected President, and except his evolving stance on same-sex marriage, his agenda remains the same as when he campaigned for the presidency in 2008. In fact, the President has worked tirelessly to fulfill his campaign promises within the limitations of the Constitution as head of the Executive Branch of government, so why Romney thinks President Obama has not openly stated his agenda is indeed curious. Willard is the man who fails to level with the American people about his real agenda and there are several reasons why he appears ambiguous and weak-minded. There are some pundits who believe Romney’s lack of resolve and commitment to an issue are calculated political strategy to avoid alienating voters, and it is probably true, but it is also likely that he has not yet decided who he will serve if he is elected president.
