To the Editor,
We have a distinct choice in this upcoming Presidential election.
Governor Romney wants to overturn Roe v. Wade, has advocated for letting
Detroit go bankrupt, wanted to let foreclosures hit bottom, and believes
nearly have of Americans view themselves as victims and want government
handouts. He says he understands us.
He touts Massachusetts's Romneycare, criticizes Obamacare, and wants to
voucherize Medicare. He says he understands us.
He makes $10,000 bets, pays 14% in taxes, put his money in off-shore bank
accounts, and has not released any significant tax history. He says we
should trust him.
He believes in the unproven "trickle down" theory, says he will balance the
budget by closing loopholes, but will not tell us the details of his plans.
He says we will have to trust him.He has continually changed his positions on the issues of abortion,immigration, stimulus, unions, health care, gun laws, TARP and more. He says he will be a consistent leader.
He took a gaffe-filled trip to England, insulted the British, insulted the
Palestinians, insulted the Polish, continually attacks the Chinese, and
thinks Syria borders Iran. He took advantage of multiple deferments during
the Vietnam War. He says he will be a good Commander-in-Chief.
President Obama has been a steadfast President who has remained focused
during tough times. In the face of an obstructionist Congress he has
withdrawn our troops from Iraq, captured Osama Bin Laden, prevented the auto
industry from collapsing, halted discrimination against gay military service
members, passed a health care reform act, invested in new technologies,
signed a START nuclear arms treaty with Russia, improved Federal standards
for polluting auto emissions, cut taxes for the middle class and small
businesses, and has won a Nobel Peace Prize.
Obama signed the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, as well as
the Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and the Middle Class Tax Relief
and Job Creation Act. He has instituted tax credits to make it easier for
employers to hire veterans. Growth is up, manufacturing is up, and jobs
have been added to the economy for over 30 straight months.
President Obama is a strong, consistent, honorable and thoughtful leader who
looks out for all Americans and who took the bold steps necessary to lead
our country back into a slow but steady economic recovery.
