"Why is the left so inconsistant? Obama lacked specifics, made and broke promises, etc. and yet he can do no wrong in your eyes."

He's done plenty wrong, no one I know says was he was perfect, or even 'the One' or 'the Messiah', that comes from you guys. Yes, he lacked specifics, and didn't fulfill all his campaign promises. No President ever has.

What is different about Romney is the depth and breadth of his sweeping 'I'll get rid of all that' nonsense. The President has no power to 'get rid of' all the things he has talked about. You don't just 'sit down' with Congress and magically get everyone to agree to do it your way. Especially when you are talking about major legislation that was years in the making. He'll repeal the affordable health care act and just replace with "something better". Seriously? How? What? Who will agree to that? 20% across the board cuts in spending? Sure, Congress will go along with that, just because he 'sat down with them'.

That isn't a plan, it is a disaster in the making.
