President of the United States: Mitt Romney

  • Follow Editorials

If a hurricane had produced 23 million unemployed Americans, a record 47 million on food stamps, nearly 50 million in poverty, almost $6 trillion in new debt, a nearly no-growth national economy and dark clouds of tax increases and recession on the horizon, it would be considered perhaps the biggest disaster to ever hit the U.S. mainland.

And it’d be crazy to vote for another dose of it.

All this and more – including an increasingly divided nation along racial and partisan lines, and a foreign policy in shambles with four Americans dead in Libya and a cascade of lies about how it all went down – is the sad-sack record of the current president.

It is, indeed, an epic disaster.

In contrast, Mitt Romney is a proven leader with unquestioned success in both the private and public sectors. He saved the 2002 Winter Olympics, and at a time when this nation needed a morale boost. He worked hand-in-glove with Democrats as governor of heavily Democratic Massachusetts. And, of course, he knows how the economy works and how jobs are created.

He is precisely the right man at the right time to fix what’s wrong in Washington and get this country moving again.

The current president talked about hope and change four years ago, but today he runs for re-

election based on fear and loathing. Yet, despite the Obama campaign’s best attempts to demonize Mitt Romney, Americans saw him unfiltered in the debates and liked what they saw.

What they saw, instead of the apparition of four years ago, was true hope for change – a real gentleman and statesman with vast experience, a deep understanding of the nature of a free and capitalistic America, and a plan for reviving the private sector rather than the already-overfed government behemoth.

Notice that, like an irresponsible student throwing together homework at the last minute, the incumbent suddenly appeared with a glossy blueprint for the
next four years – long after Romney had introduced his five-point plan that put a spotlight on the policy vacuum in the White House. Predictably, the Obama “plan” was nothing more than bland-tasting warmed-over
platitudes.

Platitudes won’t put food on the plate, Mr. President. It’s time for real leadership.

Voter after voter who was fooled into voting for Mr. Obama four years ago, newspaper after newspaper that endorsed him, have now switched their support to Mitt Romney, because they see the disaster that has unfolded on our shores, and they know it’s past time to change course.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel of Fort Lauderdale was one of those newspapers that endorsed Obama in 2008.

“But today,” the paper wrote recently, “rather than articulate a compelling vision for growth, the president falls back on the tired talking point of increasing taxes for the wealthy. Americans want our tax code to be fair – and fixed; there’s no question about that. But it’s hard to see how raising taxes is going to kickstart jobs in the private sector.

“The president had enormous opportunity when he took office, with Democrats controlling both houses of Congress. But he failed to focus on Job One: Jobs.”

And, even as the current administration and Democrats in Congress kick the can down the road, Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan have made it clear they will do what’s necessary to save Medicare and Social Security – and without touching one red cent going to current
or soon-to-be recipients.
Period.

Barack Obama was handed a crisis and turned it into a full-blown disaster.

It’s time for the cleanup and recovery to begin, with the election of Mitt Romney as our next president.

I cannot get over the fact

I cannot get over the fact that you think Mayflower people had slaves. Where were you educated? I did not know history had been so reinvented. Where were you educated? They need to lose the license to teach.

I looked it up, ksl.

I looked it up, ksl. Historians generally place the date of the start of slavery at 1619.. I was a year off. I hate it when that happens. So, your relatives waited until then?

My relatives didn't own

My relatives didn't own slaves. Have you researched how many of yours did own slaves down through the years? You might be surprised.

In 1619 no permanent

In 1619 no permanent settlements were in America. Again, slavery on the part of your warlords had been going on.and is still going on today.

Unpublished

Peter principle: if that is your answer, you didn't read he entire book. Not uncommonly for undergraduates, so you are excused.
Slavery: I did specify the US..or would be earlier...sorry that I did not continue the specification.
Ancestory: you are correct, I cannot speak to what or what not my ancestors may have been or done.

By the way, why do you blame

By the way, why do you blame the buyers more than the sellers? Your people?
