Seek the truth

August 15, 2012

Our president’s major credential when taking office was as a community organizer. Now, he feels qualified to criticize Mitt Romney’s background as governor, the director of a very successful Olympics, and leader of a successful job-creating venture capital firm. Obama is desperate to deflect attention from his dismal record on deficit reduction, the economy, and his massive health care disaster.

He is trying to convince voters that the accumulation of wealth is bad. He tells us that any wealth acquired should be the result of governmental involvement. He fails to understand that the primary goal of business is not to create jobs, but to make money so investors can realize a return on their investment and the business can afford to pay wages to those it employs. The result is job creation at its finest.

Obama and [David] Axelrod [Senior campaign strategist for Obama re-election campaign] are the spin masters of this century. They take lies and half-truths and try to convince us they are facts. Even the liberal media are challenging them on many of their false claims.

It behooves every voter to turn their “malarkey detectors” to full power and sort out the false claims we are hearing from the Obama campaign.

    The people who do not have their wits about them are members of the Tea Party/ultraconservative Republicans. They are out to destroy our democracy and push the middle class into oblivion. What Ryan is promoting will destroy Social Security, Medicare and other social program such as FEMA. Do not look at conservative think tanks that make up information. Look at many TV stations not one. Be informed and the Romney/Ryan ticket will scare you.

    I suggest every voter go see the movie, “2016; Obama’s America” this weekend before they decide to re-elect Obama. You will not recognize this country in four years if you let him obtain his goal of lowering our standards to third world status!
