i will tell you why I dislike Romney. I am a republican from Arizona and was a state delegate to our convention. During the convention Romney and his campaign, cheated, deceived and disenfranchised hundreds of precinct committeemen and women. We are republicans and we just couldn't understand why he would need to cheat if he was such a sure thing... as it was, the ron paul campaign won about 7 of 15 delegate spots yet after Romney changed the rules and cheated, we were left with only 2 delegates... the list of wrongs is too long to deal with here but I am honest when i say he has no character, no moral compass and wants to win at all costs... but in so doing - he will lose.
additionally, since i am a republican pc and donor, my name got on Romney's mailing list and in his correspondence to me he played his cards and lost. He decided to send me a 8x11 glossy of him on some farm and i just puked... like i really want a picture of him? So the most important reason I could not vote for him is his vanity. I think vanity / pride is a deadly sin... and i can't vote for that.

I tend to lean right, but I will admit. Romney is an easy guy to not like.
He does kind of come across as the CEO-kind-of-guy that would outsource his mom if he could find an old lady in a 3rd world country that would bake him cookies and not except a phone call on Christmas.
Last election, before McCain got the nomination I was watching an interview with Charles Krauthammer and they asked him why people don't like Romney. Charles said, "Look, he's good looking, he has nice hair and teeth, he was born rich and went on to become very rich. What's to like?!"
Then there's also the strained chuckle that appears every few minutes, his apparent lack of empathy with people that aren't wealthy and above all there's that bloody story about his dog in that crate on the roof of his car. That story still makes me so damn angry!

I just gave our dog a bath a few hours ago. She a big, fit Weimaranar but looks so meek and beaten whenever she's in the bath. I found myself thinking about Romney's dog in that crate atop his car for 16 hours. It's beyond me how he could have done that. Even after it was clear the dog was literally scared sh*tless, the bastard just hosed him down and continued on. I mean, the man clearly has issues deep in his soul. I am starting to buy in on the Aspergers thing.

Obama gets your vote for... what exactly? Increasing 6 trillion on the debt. Covering up Fast-n-Furious for his buddy Holder. Intel leaks from the White House that have gotten friends and allies killed and imprisoned. Ignoring the calls from our personal for increased security in the Mid East and changing the story. Giving out more executive orders than all other past presidents combined. Allowing the fed to ruin our currency by overprinting dollars, at this point in time >1.2 trillion and climbing. Talking sweet to our enemies while showing contempt for our allies.
Not being Romney!
