Two Candidates

Now that the half-hearted media 'frenzy' over the DNC has finally faded away (that took all of five, maybe ten minutes after the closing gavel), I can finally get down to taking a close look at the top two candidates running for President. (Yes, there are a bunch more folks out there running, but let's face it, they aren't even spoilers in comparison, unlike Ross Perot back in 1992 and 1996.)

Note: As always, I am not unbiased. I don't pretend to be, though on some issues I do try to take a look at both pro and con positions. This isn't one of those times.



Between consistently dismal jobs reports, hitting the $16 trillion mark for the national debt (of which $5 trillion belongs to him), lackadaisical control over government agencies that have gone rogue, economy killing regulations and 'programs', pandering and payoffs to labor unions and rent-seekers, destruction of the health care system (ObamaCare), and total disregard for the rule of law (executive order after executive order because Congress didn't give him what he wanted and interference in the bankruptcies of GM and Chrysler, just to name a few), I think it's time we show this incompetent inexperienced narcissistic blowhard the door.

Unlike most other presidents, this presidency has been about him and him alone, not the nation. (There have been others like him, but they're all dead and they didn't do nearly the damage BHO has done.)

His 'vision' of America has nothing to do with American ideals and traditions and more to do with the socialist ideals drummed into him by his mother, grandparents, and professors at college. It seems most of the people with whom he has associated were anything but mainstream Americans. Instead they were radical bomb-throwing socialists, America-hating racist theologians, and Big Government cronies. He takes no responsibility for his failures, always laying the blame on others (“It's all Bush's fault.”). He takes credit for the accomplishment of others, the “I got Bin Laden” or “I saved GM” effect. And while he did have something to with both of those events, they were minor at best. Others were carrying the heavy load.

These are not the marks of a leader.


Romney's not perfect, but he's far more competent than Obama. While he's made a few mistakes, probably the biggest being so-called RomneyCare (the Massachusetts precursor to ObamaCare), he's also done a lot of the right things.

Between his time in both the private sector and government, he's created more jobs than Obama could ever hope to do. He's also had to work with a hostile Democrat majority legislature while he was governor of Massachusetts. And while he wasn't able to make a huge dent in the long institutionalized tax-and-spend mentality so prevalent in the Bay State, he did manage to rein in spending to the point where there were balanced budgets during at least three of the four years he served, and did it without raising taxes.


OK, that's enough for now. I suppose I could go on and on about both Obama and Romney, leaning heavily to excoriating Obama for his dismal performance in office, but I've got better things to do.
