Re: “Mitt Romney’s character in question (letter ,7-14).

The writer seems to assume that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is a serial liar and President Obama is a man of virtue. I understand this opinion from the view of an obviously impassioned Obama supporter. However, if the author wished to explore “truth” he may have wanted to explain why Obama has become the most divisive president in U.S. history, or a president who has failed to live up to the high expectations that he led us all to believe in 2008 would be the case.

Obama has turned out to be just another master politician. I don’t take much stock in articles about Romney from the Boston Globe, which it seems is an active cheerleader for the Obama re-election campaign.

I have seen reports from multiple sources that Romney legally unwound his leadership position at Bain Capital over a three-year period and disclosed that material information to clients through SEC filings and fund prospectuses. Even the Washington Post (hardly a right-wing publication) has disputed “facts” from the Obama campaign.

The election in November is going to be a huge test in what kind of economy this nation will have going forward. There will be two visions on the ballot: one that has made this nation the wealthiest (even with its imperfections) in history, or one that is modeled after socialistic Europe that will control your hard-earned assets and lives forever.
