EXCERPTS:  Millions, myself included, are undecided on Romney. Obama has little relevance. Although the current president is detested from many quarters, those same people are wondering who Mitt Romney is. Does he care for us? Much as we would like to see Obama out of office, that is not enough. He must be replaced by a better candidate, a better man.

Traditional Americans face enormous challenges from such threats as unhindered immigration both legal and illegal, looming ethnic conflict aggravated by unearned privileges and preferences, and an overextended empire requiring gross overspending. Romney has yet to give any sign that he empathizes with any of these concerns.

My nights are not spent worrying over what a second Obama Administration will bring. They are preoccupied with the dangers posed by a nominee oblivious to those he attempts to influence, one who appears to believe those who disagree with him are not merely incorrect, but that we are incorrigibly stupid.

He is the sort who begins wars because he knows not of those who fight them. This is the kind who binds liberty because he feels above the laws. This is the little disdainful plutocrat who cannot satisfy our needs because he has never known want.

Callous men often lead the greatest of human calamities.
