Stacey Dash is breaking down why she believes that Mitt Romney would have made a better president
No offense to President Barack Obama, but the Clueless star just thinks Mitt was the better man for the job. It wasn’t well-recieved news when Stacey endorsed Mitt calling him "the only choice" for America’s future, but she thought she was protected by a little thing called freedom of speech.
"Perhaps I publically endorsed Romney from a slightly naive place, thinking that I could speak my voice without being criticized in such racially charged and hateful tones," said Stacey, who argued that her vote for the GOP challenger was not racially motivated.
Furthermore, she wasn’t voting for Mitt because she hates Barack, and pointed out that there is a difference between being for one candidate or just being against the alternative. "People get it wrong," she wrote. "My vote for Romney isn’t a vote against Obama. That’s not how full participants in the democratic process operate. We vote for candidates and we vote for issues."
Before making her arguments for Mitt, the Clueless star reminded everyone again that she voted for President Obama in 2008. "I was part of the overwhelming majority that swept President Obama into his historic election!" Stacey wrote. "He’s brilliant, understated, ethical, a great husband and father. President Obama will always be remembered as one of the greatest leaders this United States of America has ever known.
She applauded all the things that Barack did do for the country in his first term through his dedication to bipartisan teamwork. It’s a quality that she also believed Mitt had.
"That’s what attracted me to Romney. He had this kind of bipartisan success as governor of MA," Stacey argued. "I also don’t understand why more people aren’t acknowledging the good that has come about thanks to Romney’s Massachusetts medical coverage for all citizens"
In addition, Stacey was convinced that Mitt’s corporate experience would translate well to the White House, stating, "Romney’s business acumen is sterling. Our country needs a savvy business manager with the ability to work on both sides of the aisle."
As a single mother, Stacey said that she’s got a range of concerns about a range of issues including equality, women’s rights and "the benefits of strong public schools." But the main thing that won her vote was the economy. "I voted for the Romney ticket because I was inspired by their promises of working tirelessly to create a strong economy as their first objective," Stacey stated.
She’s not the only person upset about the outcome of the election. Donald Trump is calling for a revolution! See for yourself when you flip through Daily Buzz 11.8.12 below!
