I love the Constitution. I awoke with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for it this morning. Imagine the foresight of our forefathers who made provision in our founding document for self-correcting our mistakes when we failed to elect the right leaders. The provision for self-improvement as a nation is something we prize - ELECTIONS!
Now with just over a week to go until our next national election, the outcome seems all but certain. The key to winning national elections in recent years has been winning in the key swing states, and this morning Obama is in deep trouble.
It now appears Obama's campaign is abandoning significant ad buys in Florida, Virginia and North Carolina, all but conceding those states to Romney. Remember when his supporters were telling us those states were solid blue on his side of the slate?
|Romney vs. Obama, First Debate, October 3, 2012, Denver, CO|
Obama is poised to lose nearly every key swing state, and he's on the run. Even among women, a key metric the pundits keep pointing to as evidence of Obama's strengths, the latest polls indicate the "gender gap" has closed and Romney now leads among women voters. Obama can't win re-election without holding a majority of women! He is in deep trouble and everyone now knows it.
|Mitt Romney, Barack Obama, Second Debate|
"I can tell you that if you were to elect President Obama, you know what you’re going to get. You’re going to get a repeat of the last four years. . .
"He said that by now we’d have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans without work.
"I wasn’t the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president’s plan — didn’t get there.
"He said he would have by now put forward a plan to reform Medicare and Social Security because he pointed out they’re on the road to bankruptcy. He would reform them. He’d get that done.
"He hasn’t even made a proposal on either one.
"He said in his first year he’d put out an immigration plan that would deal with our immigration challenges — didn’t even file it.
"This is a president who has not been able to do what he said he’d do. He said that he’d cut in half the deficit. He hasn’t done that either. In fact, he doubled it.
"He said that by now middle-income families would have a reduction in their health insurance premiums by $2,500 a year. It’s gone up by $2,500 a year. And if 'Obamacare' is passed — or implemented, it’s already been passed — if it’s implemented fully, it’ll be another $2,500 on top.
"The middle class is getting crushed under the policies of a president who has not understood what it takes to get the economy working again. He keeps saying, look, I’ve created 5 million jobs.
"That’s after losing 5 million jobs. The entire record is such that the unemployment has not been reduced in this country.
"The unemployment, the number of people who are still looking for work, is still 23 million Americans.
"There are more people in poverty — one out of six people in poverty.
"How about food stamps? When he took office, 32 million people were on food stamps; today 47 million people are on food stamps.
"How about the growth of the economy? It’s growing more slowly this year than last year and more slowly last year than the year before.
"The president wants to do well; I understand. But the policies he’s put in place, from 'Obamacare' to Dodd-Frank to his tax policies to his regulatory policies — these policies combined have not let this economy take off and grow like it could have."
That's a devastating indictment of what we have witnessed under Obama's lack of leadership, and it doesn't include what he's doing to cover up the debacle in Benghazi. Under any other administration in American history if one of our foreign ambassadors were gunned down mercilessly by our enemies abroad, would we expect the kind of neglect and diffidence we've seen since 9/11/2012? The motivations are not yet clear, but Glenn Beck is accusing this POTUS of running guns from Libya through Turkey to the Syrian branch of al Qaeda. That's a serious charge tantamount to treason if it proves to be true. He asserts Obama stood aside and let Americans die to cover up the botched operation.
I have every expectation he will be deposed at the ballot box, along with all his minions in high positions of authority. America will clean out the viper's nest. That kind of treachery and dereliction to duty will not and cannot stand in America. As we learned so convincingly with Watergate and its aftermath, the truth ALWAYS rises.
In America we self-correct whenever necessary, and it keeps the Republic strong and independent. Keep faith with America's founding principles. Do your part on November 6th (or earlier if you can).
VOTE TO RESTORE AMERICA'S HERITAGE.
