I was originally going to headline this article as Top 10 Web Sites Against Mitt Romney. However, I couldn’t find 10 solid web sites dedicated especially to opposition to Mitt Rommey. The truth is that, as I write this, I’m not even feeling confident about a top 5 list.
There used to be a large number of anti-Romney sites, but they were Republican anti-Romney sites, operated by right wing extremists who favored other candidates for the GOP nomination. Most of those sites are now sitting vacant, with advertising links gathering dust. These former Republican opponents of Romney have transformed themselves into his supporters. Liberal opponents of Mitt Romney don’t seem very well organized online.
Our own Anti-Romney shop of buttons, bumper stickers and magnets happens to place well in the search engine rankings for Anti-Romney sites, and we encourage you to visit that site, but it just doesn't seem right for us to place our own web site on this top 5 list.
At 5th place, I’ll list another site that’s close to the Republican anti-Romney sites in its stance. It’s Expose Rommey, a site dedicated to the idea that Mitt Romney’s Mormon religious identity is in itself problematic. For those of us Americans who honor the constitutional concept that there shall be no religious test for public office, the idea that we should vote against Romney just because of his Mormon religion is hard to swallow. But, as I said, the anti-Romney pickings are rather slim this year.
In 4th place, let’s put the similarly narrow, but more appropriate Mitt Is Mean. This site focuses on the Romney family’s propensity for ignoring the welfare of the domesticated animals under its care, from the family dog infamously packed up on the top of the Romney car to the horse that Mitt’s wife uses in dressage competitions.
Scouring the web for a solid source of news focusing on opposition to Mitt Romney, we come to the Right Wing Watch Mitt Romney section, in 3rd place.
That’s about it for significant anti-Romney sites – at least those that are independent of other candidates. In 2nd place in the top 5 anti-Romney sites is the official campaign site of Barack Obama, the most powerful anti-Romney presidential candidate.
In 1st place, however, I place the campaign site of Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for President. Stein, after all, has been campaigning against Mitt Romney since he was Governor of Massachusetts. Furthermore, Jill Stein proposes policies that consistently oppose Mitt Romney’s policies. That simply isn’t true of the Democrats.
