I think it is important to remember that when we elect a president, he represents us globally. Mitt Romney just doesn't have the credibility a leader needs in a global environment.
Mr. Romney is unclear on aspects of foreign policy and is not widely respected in the world as a leader. In fact, because he belongs to a cult (the Mormon Church), Mr. Romney is immediately suspect by many world leaders. Most people don't have any idea what the dogma of the Mormon Church is, but in a nutshell, they believe they are the chosen people and they must perpetuate church teachings. They believe Jesus Christ traveled to the United States on a boat, and spoke to Joseph Smith through a bunch of golden plates and a translating stones. No one has ever seen these plates or stones.
I believe everyone has a right to believe whatever they want to believe in a spiritual sense. However, an organized religion with an agenda such as the Mormon Church is scary to me when a potential political leader is also an ordained bishop of that church.
Mormons are notoriously anti-women. They seem to also be anti-intellectual. They are absolutely racist. Nowhere in the bible was Jesus Christ ever referred to as a sailor. But we have a lot of people out in Utah (and elsewhere) who buy this lock, stock and barrel.
I digress. Romney clearly lacks a plan, or a thorough knowledge of foreign affairs. What I'd like to see is Mitt Romney retrace the supposed voyage of Jesus Christ and show us the gold plates and the translating stones. Then I might give him some credibility. But he'll never have my vote.
