Washington Times: Stop believing in Obama

A recent story in the Washington Times dissects the Obama experience over the last four years. In particular, the writers focus on the catastrophic leadership, or lack there of, that Pres. Obama has displayed while in office. Rather than reach across the aisle, and find practical compromise with his opponents on the hill, he battled them. As a result of his leadership vacuum, the economy is limping along, at antianemic pace. We are suffering from the worst “recovery” on record, and there is no indication that things will get better in the next four years.

Mr. Obama’s economic record has been about as bad as it could possibly be. In his first budget proposal, he promised the economy would be growing at a brisk 6.3 percent by 2012. Instead, it’s limping along at just over 1 percent. He promised that the federal deficit would be carved down to $581 billion. Instead, it has ballooned beyond $1 trillion. In 2009, he promised that if his budget-busting stimulus plan were passed, unemployment would be around 5.5 percent by now. Instead, the official rate is nearly 8 percent. Poverty has increased; the number of long-term unemployed has increased; there are millions more discouraged workers; food stamp use has surged; gas prices are up and family incomes are down. A second term would be no different.

Iacocca: Vote for Mitt Romney

Famed former Chrysler Corp. chairman, Lee Iacocca endorses Romney:

Like any turnaround it must begin by honestly facing our problems; hope and speeches wont get our people back to work. It will require experienced leadership that can create and lead policy change that will enable a more robust and competitive America. We need leadership that understands that government, just like American families, cant continue to spend beyond its means. We must find leadership that wont pander to the people, but rather will speak honestly to them about our situation, explaining in simple terms what we have to do to get back on the right track. And we need leadership that can bring us together in a sense of shared responsibility so that we can move forward as a team. All of us. As Americans.

Romney endorsed by Las Vegas Review-Journal

The Strip

The largest newspaper in Nevada endorses Mitt Romney for president.  Here’s an excerpt of their glowing endorsement:

Mr. Romney is a fine family man who donates millions of dollars to his church and charity every year. There is not a whiff of scandal about him. This is why his opponents have tried to turn his very successes against him. It’s all they have.

Early voting in Nevada begins Oct. 20. Election Day is Nov. 6. Over the last few weeks of this campaign, Nevadans must ask themselves which candidate will embrace policies that will put the people of this state back to work, creating the jobs that lift our incomes, our home values and our hope.

The choice is clear. Only Mitt Romney has the principles and experience needed to put America back on the road to prosperity. The Review-Journal endorses Mitt Romney for president of the United States.
