Matters of opinion 6

Jillian Becker was interviewed by Sergio Politics. Certain questions were put to her, but only her answers were posted. (See here).

We reproduce the interview with both questions and answers so that our readers can give their own answers if they wish to:

Sergio: What are your thoughts about Mitt Romney as a GOP candidate?

JB: I think Romney should be supported as the GOP candidate. He should have been the candidate in the last presidential election rather than McCain. He’s an experienced businessman, and economic know-how is more desperately needed in government than ever. He doesn’t make heavy weather of his religion. Only thing that bothers me is that – like McCain – he won’t use his opportunities to tell the voters what the media hide about Obama, all the disreputable facts. I have no doubt that if they were repeatedly stressed Obama would be not just discredited but disgraced. If Romney cares more for his gentlemanly image than for getting into the White House, he will be helping Obama to victory.

Sergio: What do you think about Obama and his chances for re-election?

JB: It would be terrible for America and the world if Obama is given a second term. He has done enough harm in his first term. Four more years of his redistributionist, pro-world government, pro “green” energy, pro-Islam policies would be disastrous. I think he will be defeated, but perhaps less because of what the polls indicate (though at present they are encouraging) than because I so strongly wish it.

Sergio: What do you think will be the main issue in November election?

JB: I think the economy will be the main issue in the presidential election. It should be.

Sergio: How do you think Social Media will play a role in this campaign? And can you compare it to Obama’s campaign of 2008?

JB: It’s good that millions of people now get information and opinion from sources other than the mainstream media, which are blatantly left-slanted and Democrat-supporting. Obama was hugely helped by the MSM in 2008. They will support him again this year of course, but they have a lot more competition.

Sergio: What is your opinion of Super PACs and its influence in this race?

JB: If Obama is exposed and hammered by Super PAC ads, they could make up for Romney’s restraint. Let them bring on Jeremiah Wright ranting at his worst, and all the others – communists, terrorists and America-haters – who constitute Obama’s circle of friends and supporters.

Sergio: If you have some other thought you would like to share please feel free.

JB: The electorate made a terrible mistake raising this incompetent, ignorant, weak, vain man, stuffed with leftist ideology and lacking any understanding or experience of leadership, to the most powerful position in the world – and in a time of conflict, threat, and economic distress, when a strong and prosperous America is so desperately needed. The mistake must not be repeated.

    Regarding your answer about Romney: spot on – there is a reason some of us refer to Mitt as “Mittens.” he is far too afraid to take off the gloves and get aggressive. This, in my opinion, is the single factor that will determine if he wins or loses.

      Yes, but he does have a few advantages McCain didn’t have – looks, a reputation as a good businessman, and Obama’s lousy track record.

  • Fan of Heather Mac Donald

    Oh, Jillian, if only there were more of us!  Atheist conservative must be the smallest demographic on earth, and I wish it were not so.

    Repeating, for emphasis:

    JB: The electorate made a terrible mistake raising this incompetent,
    ignorant, weak, vain man, stuffed with leftist ideology and lacking any
    understanding or experience of leadership, to the most powerful position
    in the world – and in a time of conflict, threat, and economic
    distress, when a strong and prosperous America is so desperately needed.
    The mistake must not be repeated.

    Very good interview, Jillian. 

  • Liz

    Great interview!  I hope people will get over whatever issues they may have with Romney and vote just to get Obama out of office.  Howdy Doody would make a better president than him.
