We need a square

It is amazing that the biggest criticism you hear about Mitt Romney is that he is a "stiff" (or what we used to call a "square") because of his straight laced past and being a successful CEO. I remember when I was a teenager in the early seventies. I was a square my sophomore year, then switched to the other side by my senior year because I wanted to be "cool". Those that were cool talked a lot about getting wasted and partying, most of them ended up wasting their lives unless they made a right turn.
At the convention you also got insight into Mitt's charitable side. He gave of his time and treasure to help those in need, never being paid for what he did. We have heard a lot about how the president did community organizing, but not much about his charitable side. This illustrates the difference between the two men. Mitt believes that we should have the opportunity to succeed and then give our time and treasure. The president believes that by taxing us more the government can take care of the needs of the people.
Mitt is probably not the guy you picture having a beer with. That fits the current president. And he wasn't the guy taking bong hits with his buddies in the car that shoe fits the current president. Mitt may remind you of your current boss. But, if you have a job you should be grateful that there are some "squares" out there that chose the right path.
As it says in Ecclesiastes 3 there is a time for everything. The time for partying is over, it's time for the life of the party to take his bow and it's time for the CEO to lead America to work.
