Yes, Barack is back!!!
Like you I can't wait for this thing to be over, and President Obama is elected back in office for 4 more years, to finish the good work he has started. My nerves are on tethers edge right now, and I've had to tune off all things politics for the past 2 weeks. The whole thing was starting to affect my health, so I stopped listening to political news from all sources: TV, Internet or Newspapers. I didn't watch the VP debate or even the one of last night. You can imagine the surprise of people here at home when I told them I wasn't going to watch the debates. I was however relieved this morning to read the news- the 1st time in 2 weeks - about the President's performance in the debate. It is a step in the right direction toward wrapping this thing up once and for all.
A lot is at stake in this election. Any objective observer of the events of the last 4 years would know that no President in America history has faced such a level of hatred and opposition than President Obama since he took office in January 2009,
especially at a time when the nation is facing such a dire economic upheaval. the hatred for this President started long he was elected, even before he enacted any policy. A lot of this hatred was championed by the so-called Christian Conservatives using their media outlet, the Fox News.
Despite the fierce opposition by the Republicans and their minions in Congress, and their deliberate attempt to sabotage his Presidency, the economic policies of the President Obama are beginning to pay dividen. JOBS are being created...43 months of continuous job growth and 5 million new jobs compared to 800000 job loss when he took office. The unemployment rate has fallen to 7.8%. Manufacturing is at a height never seen before.
If the Republicans are allowed back into office, they'll simply take credit for the economic growth that is the product of President Obama's policies. What concerns me most, however, is that by the time they leave office, their failed policies would have wiped off all the gains, and we'll back in economic doldrums again. That should not be allowed that to happen.
Moreover their standard bearer, Mr Romney, is VERY BAD for the country. He has nothing new to offer the nation other than the same old same old ideas of the Bush Presidency, that resulted in the worst economic disaster this country has experienced since the Great Depression. And besides his lack of idea, Mr Romney is a man without any core beliefs. He is a liar, a cheat, and a vulture capitalist, who is looking out for himself and his rich friends alone. There is no policy or political position that Mr Romney for which he hasn't taken both sides. A serial flip-flopper who will say and do anything to advance his own selfish agenda. As a candiate for Senate and Governor in Massachusetts, he was for abortion and gay marriage. At that time he described himself as more liberal than Ted Kennedy. Fast forward to the current election season, he now says, and I quote, "I am severely conservative". He is now anti-abortion and anti gay marriage. Here is a man who was the father of the healthcare law in Massachusetts (Romneycare) that was used to craft the Obamacare. He has now disowned his signature achievement as Governor, because of political expediency. According to him he will repeal Obamacare if he is elected as President. No wonder Ted Kennedy nicknamed him "Multiple Choice Romney".
Romney is nothing more than an empty suit, driven by blind ambition. His sole purpose for the past 20 years has been to become President. If he gets elected, the poor, the middle class should know they are on their own, because his economic policies will completely decimate the foundation that Barack Obama has laid for a thriving middle class. Mr Romney will destroy all the social safety nets that the President has put in place.
We should therefore do all we can to make sure President Obama is reelected for 4 more years. Donate (www.barackobama.com), canvass, knock on doors, call your friends and families, register to vote, and make sure you vote on November 6, 2012.
