He also points out that "According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the plan, which Mr. Romney has endorsed, could cut overall nondefense science, engineering, biomedical and technology research by a quarter over the next decade, and energy research by two-thirds."
For a man who touts himself as a smart business man, Romney sure looks stupid when it comes to science and technology. Science and technology made this country. Science and technology created the jobs that made the American dream possible. Science and technology gave us the semiconductor devices which put the information age in every one's hands.
If we needed a reason to sit Romney in a corner with a dunce cap it is his Luddite view of scientists and engineers in our society. I guess he may even consider them another segment that is irrelevant. It is obvious that this man became a billionaire not because of the use of technology but because of his abuse of technology.
I don't know how November 6th will play out. I do know that I dread the thought of a Romney presidency. We sorely need Barak Hussein Obama for another four years.
