Warning: This is a political post

31 Aug

Bottom line, Ya’ll’ve had your fun and cost a generation their futures…their retirements, their home equities, their tuition savings, their careers. Its time to put some adults back in the White House.

Did Obama inherit a bad situation? Yes. Even Paul Ryan, on the convention stage, acknowledged that multiple times (intellectual integrity beyond the capability of the Democrats). And then Obama proceeded to make it far, far worse, while never taking responsibility like some 5 year old.

Is Mitt the perfect candidate? No.

Is he as eloquent as Obama? No. But he has demonstrated ability to address the dire circumstances that our little failed experiment in hope and change has created.

Is Paul Ryan perfect? No. But it doesn’t take much to be a better choice than that babbling fool Biden who is just one heartbeat away. And at least Ryan is an adult, with a willingness to face hard realities.

But this isn’t an exercise in finding our perfect leaders. This is a stark choice between two teams…period. We don’t get to choose perfect. But we get to choose.

And you are delusional if you deny that these are dire economic times…record levels of unemployment, staggeringly low labor participation, sputtering growth.

You are completely out of touch if you can’t acknowledge that Obama at least shares responsibility for this crisis. And you are fooling yourself that another four years of these failed policies will change the steep direction of our decline.

And you are self-aggrandizing if you still believe that this administration and their supporters are collectivist altruists. This ignores the hard cold fact of the unprecedented, frightening debt we are running up and putting on our children’s tab and their children’s tab.

What barbarians would treat their children with such disregard? The hypocrisy is so transparent and yet so willingly ignored. Larry Summers said it himself…we’re home alone…there’s no adult in charge. Dirty Harry was right….America needs a boost. It’s time for a change.

 

Good night all.
