I’m Sorry, Mitt

As I’ve confessed time and time again, I wasn’t always the staunch conservative that I am today- and as embarrassed as I am of the way I used to be, I think that in the long run, I’m better off for it. I can say with confidence that I know what I believe and I know why I believe it because my opinions are the result of research and questioning. I don’t just regurgitate the beliefs of my parents, professors or peers; I’ve thought critically and independently to reach my conclusions.

That being said, I think it’s time for a long overdue apology. Mitt Romney, I’m sorry. Given my beliefs being farther right of yours on many issues at this point, I doubt you would’ve been my pick in the primary, but you were so much more deserving of the highest office of the United States than the moron I so enthusiastically supported in 2012.

While we have our ideological differences, I know in my heart of hearts that this country would be in a much better place under your leadership, and that we’ve wasted four years of the presidency on someone that couldn’t dream of rivaling your wisdom and leadership.

I’m sorry because my opinions were not based on fact, but on feeling and sensationalism. I’m sorry because I publicly and passionately berated you without the slightest idea of what or who I was talking about. And most of all I’m sorry because so many people were doing the same, and if we had taken the election more seriously and taken the time to examine it in depth, we might not have actively participated in bankrupting the greatest country on earth for generations to come.

You and your beautiful family deserved so much better than the way you were treated, even by election year campaign standards. I want to thank you for caring about this country enough to run twice, and continuing to love it in the face of rejection. Thank you for the dignity and grace you consistently uphold, even when it wasn’t reciprocated. God bless America and God bless the Romney family.

  • I work hard because I have a dream of stacking hundreds on each blade of a ceiling fan above my bed (that will be mostly ornamental because I’ll have central air) and making it rain
  • Eyes on the prize
  • let the light in
  • It would be nice if 60° in nova/dc actually meant one thing instead of anywhere from 40° to 80° so I could pack these boots away until the fall once and for all
  • Yesterday while watching the updates roll in on Notre Dame, I couldn’t help but feel discouraged as I read tweet after tweet from people wanting to believe and see the worst in the world. It had to be arson. It had to be terrorism. It had to represent the end of civilization as we know it. But then I remembered that the internet isn’t real life, and even if human nature leaves all of us exposed to and malleable by hate and fear, most people are good. And I don’t know if the glory of a masterpiece that was constructed over the course of 2 centuries can ever be repeated, but I know that beautiful things are born from tragedy. Something iconic and special has been lost, but I like to believe something iconic and special will come of it. I usually only feel this when I watch les mis, but vive la France. New blog post, link in bio.
