It can’t be! Can you believe?
No, I’ll take that back. I can believe. A favorite neighborhood store, Albertson’s, closed. A letter to the editor suggested this community disaster was caused by Mitt Romney!
Nothing about failed economic policies and promises of President Obama’s past four years. Tell me, please, about any positives from Obama’s time in office, at home or abroad.
Give Romney his due. Starting with literally nothing, he helped build many businesses and created jobs for our industrialized nation and became wealthy doing it, as did others. If the enterprises failed or didn’t come up to expectations they were closed down and/or replaced. Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?
If employees fail to come up to snuff they are let go or replaced. With this thinking President Obama is not cutting the mustard and should be fired or replaced before our nation goes under.
Please don’t tell me it’s George Bush’s fault, nor faults of President Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Dwight Eisenhower, ad infinitum.
Romney’s self-made wealth and record in Massachusetts stands with the Kennedys who, incidentally, inherited their assets. Democratic aspirant John Kerry married into his riches.
How does Republican affluence so differ from those of the Liberal-Democratic line?
I prefer the Conservative road to prosperity. Progressives spend too much time blaming others and the past for not attaining goals and promises. It’s like wishing in one hand and promising in the other: one seldom filled, the other keeps coming up empty.
