Clint Eastwood made President Obama’s Day at the Republican National Convention in Tampa with his rambling display of gibberish that’s part of a concerted campaign to take America back to the 19th Century. Bring on the robber barons! With a fifth column like Eastwood in their ranks, the effort to re-elect the president should get easier.
Clint ought to stick to what he does best, which is making movies, or come prepared the next time out. Between Clint’s attempt at movieland magic and Mitt, light on the details, Romney; expect little impact on the nation’s economy recovery. The all talk and no substance approach to government has the same failed polices of Bush II written all over it, namely lower taxes for the wealthy. Where’s the meat, Mitt? How long do we have to wait for you to unveil your plan of action?
The election seems to be all about jobs. The patriotic Republican business community is good at creating jobs. Unfortunately, most of their jobs are in foreign countries where the labor force is cheaper, and the American worker be damned!
At the recent London Olympics, the British summarized Romney’s analytical skills best when they knighted him, Mitt the Twit! More and more, the “Mitt-ster” is beginning to make George W. look like a Rhodes Scholar. Folks, it’s getting down to decision time. In November, we are electing a political leader for all our people, not a religious patriarch.
Study the contrasting views of President Obama and Mitt Romney carefully because your life might depend on it. The Evangelicals have pushed Romney into anti-choice position in the reproductive arena and the tea party is hell bent on destroying our entitlement programs that have served us splendidly for over 70 years.
Congressman Ryan, Romney’s running mate, wants the present Medicare system converted to an annual block grant program. If your medical costs exceed that grant, you, not the government, picks up the difference. Virtually every industrialized country provides better health coverage for its masses than does the U.S. At least Obamacare is a step in the right direction, as millions more will now have reasonable coverage. With regards to social security, there’s a solution, too. Remove the income limit for social security. For every dollar earned, three to four percent of it goes to an untouched social security lock box. Currently, there is a cutoff of $110,100 dollars yearly.
Every time we cut taxes, the middle class loses and the upper class wins. Stop supporting candidates that are contrary to your interests. The past four years have been difficult for many of us, but some positive results have been gained by the action of the President.
Pressure has been put on banks to ease home foreclosures, and that has helped stabilize the housing market. The domestic auto industry has been saved which helped the nation avoid a bonified depression. The needless war in Iraq has been concluded and public enemy number one, Osama bin Laden, has been eradicated. The job is certainly not complete, but in many areas we are heading in the right direction. On the other hand Mitt Romney has been out there for over a year now, and besides his continued flip-flops; how much do we really know what he stands for?
