This Time I'm Saying Something!

Don't let the media influence your vote, research the candidates. Find facts and base your vote on that. It's not okay to go with the good public speaker anymore; that's been a proven FLOP.

During the last Presidential Election, I watched in awe of people fawn over Barack Obama, with no real clue as to who he was. Make no mistake about it, Barack is a fabulous campaigner but so far his leadership has (how can i say this) stunk

In 2008 I worked with a younger man that voted for Barack Obama for President because he thought it was cool that Barack smoked. Seriously?! I couldn't believe that was a reason someone would use to actually cast a vote for the leader of the free world. What I am afraid of is that there are way too many people like that that cast uneducated votes, or that they were under a spell by the fabulous campaigner that the media helped perpetuate. Have you seen those kooks on The View and how Star Struck they are by him?

I could not let this election go by without saying something this time. If you are not sure why you're voting or letting a Hollyweird celebrity, or just a couple of sound bytes or good speeches influence you, maybe you need to do a little research before you cast a vote that affects everyone's life. I'm sure our founding fathers did not have any provisions for our President being a "smoker" as the reason to put him in charge.

I personally do not think that Mr. Obama is an adequate or experience leader. In fact I really do think that he is horrible at it. He has no regard for We The People, unless of course, we the people is a group that supports his radical agenda for our country. I really have a problem that he is saddling my children with so much debt. 

3/4 of the media already have their foot on the scale in favor of President Obama. But do you really want the opinion of some mole like Chris Matthews who has "tingly feeling going up his leg"? That's a fair and impartial journalist? Who says that on TV and gets taken seriously?

Here are some facts and failures. Do more research, but don't vote because something was a good speech. That's just ignorant.

George W. Bush is not the President anymore, stop blaming him.

Barack had his first 2 years in office with a Democrat House and Senate and failed to get anything done.

Passed a healthcare bill that all of them and their $200,000 + salaries couldn't be bothered to read. And our speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi says "You have to pass the bill to find out what's in it." She must have been absent the day they taught Democracy in school.

2010 Barack Obama said "Republicans can come for the ride, but they have to sit in the back." Seriously? Mr. Obama could you be more divisive and foolish?

$16 Trillion deficit more than double what it was when Bush did his massive over spending.

Failed Stimulus that never kept unemployment under 8%

GDP numbers as of today show we are stagnant:

47 million people on food stamps almost doubled since Obama has been in office.

Incomes have gone down $3000 for a year since Obama has been in office.

Attack on our Embassy in Libya was planned and 4 Americans were killed on the Anniversary of 9/11. Mr. Obamas response, go to Vegas to fund raise. His 2nd response, lie to the American people that it was about a YouTube video released in MAY. 16 days later the administration still won't acknowledge a war on terror or that there are Islamic Extremists thousands of them that want to kill us.

Do you need more information? There is much more. 

Mr. Romney has been vilified by the media and bloggers alike that are trying to annihilate him and his wife for anything that he has said or done in his life.

He has been married for decades, and stuck by his wife in sickness and in health. 

He has 5 good sons.

He is a man of faith.

He took no salary as governor of Massachusetts.

He took no pay as head of the Olympics for 3 years.

He built an empire from nothing (I know that is a very unpopular thing to do, and rich people are Satanic according to liberals, unless it's Beyonce).

Bain Capital helped create jobs and save companies that would have otherwise met their demise. Sports Authority and Staples to name a couple. He created more jobs than were destroyed.

He fixed a horribly broken Olympics. The Salt Lake City games were a HUGE success under his tenure on the job.

Hopefully this will nudge you to do some research on your own. Watch the debates. Pick a candidate that you think will do a better job. Frankly, Obama in my opinion based on the facts and following his Presidency has done nothing to bring value to my country, my home, or my family. 

Oh yeah, and if all you have to rebut this with is that I'm a racist, please go back under the rock from which you crawled.

Dan, here's one for ya. Why do you think Sinclair Lewis would favor checkers over chess?

Never said he did, tiny. That is one of those stupid questions that, theoretically, don't exist.

What I was relating is your equality and freedom is on a similar EMPTY meaning as Obama's hope and change.
Dan Avery October 10, 2012 at 02:38 AM
tiny since my piece isn't about freedom and equality you're talking ignorant trash. In other words, what you think has never concerned me. You've been three different people on here in the course of two months. You are a joke.

And you sir are like Obama, all flourish, and zero substance.
