The “Down Payment on Fiscal Sanity Act” is what Gov. Romney calls part of his plan. He’s going to act to boost small business, repeal ObamaCare, launch a sweeping view of all regulations that are killing jobs, get us free from foreign oil, and bring our economy back.
Obama says he needs four more years (to do the same). He says “we’ve come too far to turn back now.” Translation: He’s brought socialistic reforms and needs four more years to transform this country (that he doesn’t love) into his ideology of a communistic (socialist) state where government controls all. Obama says foreign policy and social issues matter but more than anything else this election presents a choice between two fundamentally different visions of how to create strong and sustained growth.
Obama says “Romney’s vision is to take us on the same path that got us into this mess in the first place, going back to top down policies that crashed our economy, and it’s never worked.” Really?)
We had 40 years of prosperity from Reagan’s top-down policies which lasted until 2006 when Congress was taken over by extremist liberals. Even John F. Kennedy believed in that policy of lowering taxes and prosperity from the top down.
Obama is about unsustainable commitments for existing programs (Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid) for which he has no solutions. The stimulus, auto bailouts, Dodd/Frank, and ObamaCare have left America deep in debt, less well off, more at risk, and without a return path to prosperity.
Romney’s experience and capability will turn our country around. Obama said in 2009: ” I didn’t come here to pass on problems to the next president. I came here to solve them.” Indeed! Now we have the Benghazi-gate scandal, and the liberal media is ignoring it (which will ultimately show gross negligence and mismanagement-they lied, denied, and people died). The military, active and retired, is burning over this scandal. You don’t leave your people behind!
Obama does not have our back. Romney does. Obama says Al Qaeda is gone with his killing of bin Laden, but it is stronger than ever now. That is what he is covering up here, that and the gun-running they have done in Libya and Syria.
Obama says “Vote! Voting is the best revenge!” Romney says “Vote! Vote for love of our country.” That’s the stark difference.
As Clint Eastwood said at the GOP Convention: “When somebody does not do the job, we got to let ’em go!” Time to let Obama go!
