Joe Citizen Endorses Mitt Romney

In less than two weeks, citizens across this nation will go to the polls to elect our next president. Early voting has already started in many states. Will they choose to give Barack Obama four more years or elect Mitt Romney? Many are saying this may be the most important election in our lifetime. As a recent retired person, I am very concerned about the direction of our country. Many Americans were fooled in 2008 by Obama's rhetoric of Hope and Change. I was a lifelong Democrat, but could not support a candidate that I knew so little about and what I did know ... I did not like. America has serious problems and we need a serious person in the White House to help solve them. We cannot afford to be fooled again!

We need a president that has a history of working in a bipartisan way to create jobs, balance the budget, and reduce our huge deficit. I am endorsing Mitt Romney for President because of his strong business experience in the private sector and his executive experience as the former governor of Massachusetts where he worked across the aisle with a Democratic legislature. His experience at Bain Capital taught him how to make companies grow and how to respond to problems. His leadership helped save the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City from a financial disaster. He is probably the most experienced executive running for president since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952. This is a very big deal in my opinion.

One of the first things Mitt Romney will do as president is to replace Obamacare with a healthcare plan that combines the best elements of the Democratic plan - coverage of pre-existing conditions, mandatory participation by all, coverage of children up to age 26 - with strengths in the Republican plan that were not included, such as freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines.

I encourage America to vote for Mitt Romney not because he is a Republican, but because he is the best man for the office. Many that voted for Obama in 2008 have changed their minds in 2012. Are you better off than you were four years ago? Gas prices have more than doubled. The average family is spending $4000 more a year for groceries. We can do better!

I am not only asking you to vote for Mitt Romney, but to vote against Barack Obama. In 2008 we were told about Obama's associations with Jeremiah Wright - a radical pastor that preached disturbing sermons about America. Finally, Obama threw him under the bus to save his campaign. Obama was also associated with Bill Ayers, a domestic terrorists from the 1970's. Ayers was quoted on 9/11/2001 as saying - "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." The mainstream media barely covered this important story. How would they have covered this if it had been George Bush or John McCain?

President Obama has also appointed several people to his administration that trouble me. Kevin Jennings is the Safe Schools Czar. Mr. Jennings, a homosexual wrote the forward to a 1998 book titled, "Queering Elementary Education." The book he endorsed was a collection of essays who supported teaching young kids about homosexuality.

There are others with communist leanings. Van Jones was the leader and founder of a radical group, the communist organization Standing Together to Organize a Revoltionary Movement, or Storm.

Sam Graham-Felsen ran the Obama's campaign blog. He spent time in France taking part in labor riots, has written for a socialist magazine, hung a communist flag in his home, and was a fan of Marx while at Harvard.

These are just a few examples of the people that Obama has appointed to positions in his administration. Is this the type of leadership you want in the White House? I don't think so.

In his 2008 campaign, Barack Obama made the following statement wth pride ... "we are no longer a Christian nation." Our forefathers fought and died for the right for our nation to be a Christian nation. President Reagan said - "If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under." I truly believe this is why the United States of America is in the shape it's in today. Most people have forgotten that we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD! I urge you to vote for the party that still keeps God in their platform, not the party that had to vote to put him back in!

Finally, Mitt Romney impresses me as a focused, task-oriented problem solver, both by inclination and by experience - a real "fix-it" guy. A lot needs fixing in America, from a broken economy to a broken-down political system. Mitt Romney offers the leadership we need from the White House.

@Joe, very well articulated. I can understand why Obama was elected, there were a lot of forces involved... he really had no record, he was the first African American to run for the Office as a Candidate, and the Republicans were being blamed for the economic meltdown.

But the past is the past...

People need to look at his record, and more importantly look at where he will likely lead us if he gets four more years.

Too many people a caught up in the 'image' especially the young voters, who are too inexperienced and easy to manipulate with one liners, as their grasp of global issues and how we compete economically with the rest of the world is just not there...

There is a reason why 50% of college grads can only find work at McDonalds after they get their degree... and its not just because of the poor economy.

It's because anyone in a management position knows that their degree is a worthless piece of paper... it hasn't taught them good work ethics, it hasn't taught them to work hard to get ahead, it hasn't taught them common sense... if anything it has taught them a sense of entitlement and a warped idea of how the world (especially business) really works.

That blanket statement doesn't cover all of them, clearly half od them that are finding good jobs have their heads on straight and must be able to project themselves well... the other half, well the majority of them are most likely the ones to support Obama, who think the Government owes them something, that think their employee owes them something, that think having a degree entitles them to something... they are the new 30 somethings that are living in their parent's basement, refusing to join the military, or go overseas, or plain do what it takes to get a job, get out of the house, and take responsibility for their lives.

America is producing a lot of such citizens these days, and they all love Obama.

Obama was a bad idea and one that needs to be relegated to the history books on November 6th. Just the idea of electing a man or woman with no experience and who was totally unqualified to be the CEO of the most powerful nation on earth is inexcusable. I think I've heard it all over the course of the last 4 years. I've been called a racist because I disagree with his insane socialistic policies. The color of his skin has not a damned thing to do with my disagreement with his Marxist background and training.

I have bothered to study Obama. I have read his books and researched his history, that is what he hasn't had sealed. He was hiding something then and continues to hide it now. When it is finally discovered what a big con man he is those who he led to believe in him will be similar to those who believed in Jim Jones. Sheeple is what I call them and it's sad that people will just follow lamely along listening to a con man pitch snake oil.
