I interpreted signing as restricted to economic policy issues. The statement itself speaks only to economic issues. However, at the time, I didn't realize the degree to which people would interpret this as an endorsement of Romney overall. (Yes, the headline is "Economists for Romney" but somehow I thought it was clear that it was only economics.) I do not endorse his views on foreign policy, civil liberties and social policy. Endorsement of his economic policy proposals is to be viewed only in comparison to Obama's policies (and also his lack of proposals to restrain spending). This does not represent my deepest ideals or a comprehensive economic philosophy. I believe it is akin to choosing the less scratchy toilet paper. I am distressed that some people would interpret my action as selling out to the GOP establishment or such…
Mario: Before you endorse a candidate and that candidate's policies, you need to find out what they are. The loophole-closing that dare not speak its name does not count.
As it is, you have put yourself in the position of endorsing 2+2=576. Have some self-respect.
