Sutherland Institute president has problems with Romney

The president of the Sutherland Institute, a conservative think tank involved in political issues, said he plans to vote for presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the November presidential election.

However, Paul Mero admits he does have problems with Romney as a candidate. On KVNU’s Harry Caines show Thursday, Mero said Romney is all about money and money is what seems to make his world go around. That translates into jobs and the economy, but Mero says he does not like to talk about social issues.

“The fact is that you don’t have economic prosperity without stable families, and so he at least ought to tip his hat once in a while to the idea that stable families create economic prosperity,” Mero said. 

Mero said some people claim that entrepreneurs and /or individual liberty create economic prosperity. He said although they are part of it, it is stable families – decent parents raising decent children – that helps create economic prosperity.
