Tuesday, September 4, 2012 me, this sorta sounds like treason. No?

The republicans are trying to win back the white house by saying “this guy has to go because he is spending more than any other in history, he hasn’t made the economy recover fast enough from the collapse, and he wants to end the Bush tax cuts on the rich (they call it “raising taxes”). They say this is so much the number one, most important thing for the good of the country, to get Obama out, that they admittedly voted no on every single jobs bill and reform proposal made in congress, so that the economy would stay bad, so that Obama would look bad by re-election time. 

Now, to me, this sorta sounds like treason. No?

They say that Romney is the guy that can fix the economy because of all his business experience.  But I don’t think they have too much confidence in their candidate winning. Possibly because of his refusing to show his tax returns, or having recently had money in the Cayman Islands, or his “little” scandals like his bullying in college where he cut a classmates long hair off, etc. But for whatever reason, they’ve implemented a campaign strategy that includes raising seven times more money than the blue team, passing voter suppression “ID” laws in several “low income” states, and, for the first time in an American presidential election, admittedly peppered campaign speeches and ads, with out and out, bold faced lies.

Hmm. ….You know,…I’m pretty sure this isn’t going to work.

We, the people, aren’t, on average, as smart as the guys that run these campaigns like Rove and Ailes, but we’re not quite that stoopid (SP?). The guy we have in there now may not always get everything right, but he’s been pretty good at keeping this country going, after experiencing some extremely, extremely (no, I know, I repeated for emphasis) turbulent times. He’s got a calm nature that helped negotiate with panicky bankers that were ready to jump out the window, automakers that were ready to close up shop and walk away, and third world dictators that were tired of just oppressing their countrymen, and were taking up genocide as a hobby. He’s improved America’s image abroad by 26% in international polls.
He served longer than any president in decades without a personal scandal. He helped pass a health care reform program to reduce health care costs. He reversed Bush torture policies, repealed don’t ask don’t tell, and expanded medical support for veterans. He began closing some of the dirtiest coal plants, raised efficiency standards on cars, and encouraged investment in renewable energy. He brokered an unprecedented victims compensation fund from BP. Expanded the Wilderness and Watershed Act. Has spent less than any president in recent history:
‘Has a plan to reduce the deficit:
Found bin laden, and a trove of al-Qaeda documents. Ended the war in Iraq. Began draw-down in Afghanistan. Signed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act, Credit Card Reform Act, Food Safety Program, and the New START Treaty. And he’s the first president to dare suggest that we consider possibly reducing the huge tax breaks we give to the oil industry. 
And some other stuff. Here’s a list:
And he's kept us safe!
And he knows how to pronounce “nuclear”.

-‘Works for me!         - Romney might be as good at this job, but then, why would they have to lie and all that stuff, just to get him elected?

I'm Fred Bellows and approve this message.
