What is the difference?

February 1, 2013

Romney and Ryan offered us meat and potatoes with creme brulee as dessert. President Hussein Obama offered us bread and water! Romney and Ryan offered us jobs and security....

This is as one-sided as it gets when it comes to letters. First of all, just because they 'offered it' doesn't mean that's what you were going to get. Secondly, I don't believe that Romney and Ryan were any better than Obama.

Ryan also offered his endorsement for maintaining a Master Race...what was referred-to as the "producers of all wealth".

If you ask me, Romney and Ryan offered us either a massive increase in taxes/ or a huge acceleration in national debt. They didn't seem able to clearly answer the question as to which one.

They also offered even greater division, "it's not my job to govern 47% of Americans".

They also offered us, "sorry but your jobs been moved to China, because my campaign contributor, and old friend wants to make a little more money so he can buy a third Rolls Royce."

They also offered us the possibility of a shift of the real power in the country to Salt Lake City.

America rightly said "no thanks."

The letter writer is surprised that a politician that would offer Americans a creme brulee in every pot would lose? Isn't that one of those French surrender monkey type desserts?

You're right, we got what you voted for. Higher unemployment, shrinking economy, nearing 17 TRILLION in debt, open borders, gun grabbers, and a man who is aiming to be our dictator. God help us for the next 4 years. There is tyranny right before us.

"Higher unemployment (8.3% in Feb 09, peaked at 10% in Oct 09, 7.8% in Dec 12), shrinking economy (all of the above are higher than when Obama took office: auto sales, home sales, consumer confidence, GDP, Dow Jones/S&P), nearing 17 TRILLION in debt (true), open borders (record highs for both deportations and border patrol agents), gun grabbers (no confiscation legislation proposed and the "assault weapons ban" is already dead on arrival), and a man who is aiming to be our dictator (fairly elected by a healthy majority of Americans last I heard).

Facts above from Depts of Justice and Treasury, Congressional Budget Office, Bureau of Labor Statistics and Fox News.

Sure. Romney was all for those varmint killing weapons. Romney would go which eve way the wind blew on any day. We will all have to wait and see what becomes of Paul Ryan. He is relatively young.

Joseph, if you check the number of people actually employed, which isn’t so easily misrepresented, you’ll find it’s about the same as when Obama took office.

And there are plenty of other economic indicators that have worsened under Obama as well. My point was to counteract a bunch of uninformed sweeping generalizations. They seem to be the norm in this area.
