Mitt Romney Patrols the Beach Near His House for Pot Smokers

I don’t care about Mitt Romney’s big house in La Jolla or his plans to make it much bigger and install a car elevator. He has 18 grandkids, so he needs a lot of space, including for cars. I get that. However, I can’t get with a man who does stuff like this:

‘Mr. Romney and his wife take regular walks around La Jolla, exchanging pleasantries with fellow strollers and occasionally enforcing the law. A young man in town recalled that Mr. Romney confronted him as he smoked marijuana and drank on the beach last summer, demanding that he stop.

‘The issue appears to be a recurring nuisance for the Romneys. Mr. Quint, who lives on the waterfront near Mr. Romney, said that a police officer had asked him, on a weekend when the candidate was in town, to report any pot smoking on the beach. The officer explained to him that “your neighbors have complained,” Mr. Quint recalled. “He was pretty clear that it was the Romneys.”’

I used to live in Venice Beach, which is a grittier lower-class beach community. But you don’t go up to somebody smoking a joint at the beach and scold them. It’s part of the culture. If any ordinary citizen complained to the cops about someone smoking weed on the beach, they’d be laughed out of town. I mean, if it were on Romney’s property, that would be different.

I agree with his gay neighbor, Randy Clark, who said, “It’s odd that this is where Romney picked a place — it’s so progressive.” Go live somewhere where people aren’t living the beach life. This is Southern California, for chrissakes.

    In Genesis GOD said all seed bearing plants are good. I am sure that means all of the plants including cannabis. Ask Romney this question, do you think GOD made a mistake by calling cannabis good? He won’t open his mouth because he knows the truth but is to much of a hypocrite to tell the truth.

    I’m really going to vote for some religious prig in hopes that the drug war will end under his republican administration.

    I am all for legalization of marijuana for all uses. I realize that many readers of this web site hate republicans and conservatives. They try to jam their Christian values down our throats and seem very closed minded at times. But I have to tell you, our economy and country are going down a very bad path right now. It is very important that we get back on track financially as a country, otherwise everybody’s quality of life is going to go down hill BIG TIME. Obama has shown himself to he a a hater of marijuana smokers. He is a hypocrite of the worst kind. With Romney, at least there is some hope that he will allow states to make their own decisions regarding marijuana. Obama is worse that Bush! Maybe Romney will be bad on this, maybe not. But I believe he is out best hope for fixing the economy. If the economy continues to decline, the subject of medical marijuana, marijuana legalization, and drugs in general will be moot. We will be too busy trying to survive. I have been watching and learning about politics a LOT over the past 4 years. I believe we are being deceived by a lot of people. Romney may not be perfect, but I believe he will be our best choice. All I am asking is that you open your mind and heart and consider that maybe Obama isn’t the right choice for another 4 years.
