A STRONGER U.S.A. THAN EVER BEFORE.
That would be a possibility under Obama.
Now that the election day is getting closer, pollsters are jittery than any political news service group, and they are putting out numbers that do not make much sense.
Some say 48% to 46%, others say 50% to 50% tie; the battleground states figures are changing by the minute; and what is making things worse is Hurricane Sandy interrupting the campaign trail for both candidates.
Newspaper endorsements are also coming in, with one saying that its endorsement has not changed in over forty years, until now, and its preference is for the candidate who is planning to turn the economy around.
What? Where has that newspaper been in the last four years, when the economy was on the abyss of disaster, and unemployment was as high as 400000 a month in 2009, and the motor industry was going down the tubes?
It has all changed, and the economy was in recovery, in spite of the Congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill rejecting jobs proposals after jobs proposals, especially when the United States House of Representatives gave their party a majority through the "tea party" in the Fall of 2010.
Conservative organs, like Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham radio shows, broadcasting on over 1000 radio stations nationwide, plus Bill O'reilly and Sean Hannity backup TV talk shows, all pouring out whatever on an administration, from the very moment of its inception, it would be considered a wonder that President Barack Obama has survived his first four year in office.
The erstwhile Glenn Beck had a direct phone line to the White House, asking the president to report to him on his live TV show at 4 p.m. in the afternoon; but there was never a call back, obviously. He was just haranguing the leader of the Western world and making things difficult for him.
Remember too that there is the online opposition by websites like Politico.com and others that will twist the news and cause embarrassment for Obama, just for the sake of it.
There also come the Weekly Standard, Washington Examiner, Free Republic, Town Hall, Hot Air, etc., etc. reeking havoc on Obama, and all having the ultimate aim to get him to fail.
No president has been forced to endure such awful experiences; but in all that, he has kept his cool and made strides toward a better economy than the one he found, creating over five million private sector jobs and reducing unemployment to a mere 7.8%.
Of course, no politician has been able to keep all the promises he made in a campaign, but most of Obama's promises have come true, such as ending the Iraq war to enable soldiers to come home, and urging Hamid Karzai to take security responsibility for his country, Afghanistan. There too, he was in the process of bringing American troops home to their families.
The Affordable Care Act to ensure adequate insurance coverage for millions of poor people has been achieved, and private insurance companies and medical groups making health care cost to skyrocket year after year have been sidelined in the health industry. (.... but somebody wants to bring them back).
As said proverbially, "Rome was not built in a day", and Obama was running for a second term to finish the work that he started in 2009. He was deserving of another chance to build a strong middle class, a well trained workforce to meet future technological and industrial trends, education to be a top priority for all citizens, young and old, equal opportunity for men and women in the workplace.
Tax reforms to make sure that the wealthy in society paid their fair share in taxes; and to tackle the huge National debt caused by two unwanted wars overseas. The U.S. military forces have never been stronger, and under Obama, he has the determination to keep them that way, as long as he remained president.
If only the stiff and cast iron opposition that has been presented to him all these years would subside, he would do better in building a strong economy, second to none in the world. He has promised that, and that would be what he would do.
Forget about the polls and newspaper endorsements. Voters should give Obama four more years to accomplish the impossible; thus bringing about a fair, stronger and equitable U.S.A.
