Why Christine O'Donnell is Giving Money to Romney

Why I contributed to Gov. Romney.

One of the problems with our current president is that he was too inexperienced when he was sworn in. This lack of executive leadership is the reason Pres. Obama has no problem leading from behind and serving as our Follower in Chief. As a result, our economy is a mess and it's just getting worse. Voters are craving strong leadership. Mitt has it. He’s one of the only front runners with both successful government executive experience and successful business executive experience. This is a strong contrast to Pres. Obama.

And the very thing that Gov. Romney was criticized for in 2008, I find appealing heading into 2012. In the midst of such turmoil and uncertainty, it's comforting that he's strong, solid and stands as an unmovable Oak tree in the middle of a raging storm. Viscerally, voters will respond to that as the Obama Administration falls more and more into chaos.

I hope the fact that I stood up to the liberal establishment within my own party gives me the bona fides among conservatives to say the following; I find the tone and nastiness of some of the things circulating around the internet about Romney extremely offensive. His words and actions are being twisted out of context and well, maybe I am not so objective here, but I think it is below the belt to be so blatantly deceptive about a candidate's positions. This is the other reason I contributed to Gov. Romney. I don't think he is getting a fair shake from some within my own movement. While we may not agree with 100% of his positions, he’s been a champion against a liberal bastion and deserves our respect. (Really?  When?)

When I tweet about Gov. Romney or mention that I am leaning towards getting behind him, for the most part, people agree with me. Yet what concerns me is the intensity with which a few disagree. This intensity concerns me not only because it is misplaced, but because it could cost us the election if Romney does become our nominee.

Let me explain:

Right now a lawn gnome could beat Obama in 2012, so, yes, we can be picky, but not nasty or malicious. If we don't stop the Republican cannibalism we're simply turning this election over to the Democrats, who certainly don't deserve it. We should learn a lesson from what happened in my race last year. I was consistently beating my democratic opponent in the pre-primary head to head match up... and then the Republican Establishment launched their shameless attack and changed all that. As the saying goes, a lie runs around the world while the truth is still lacing up its shoes. So when I see Romney's record being so obviously distorted and twisted, I tend to empathize.

You can draw your own conclusions.  Apparently she still doesn't see the influence her own hand had in her demise.
