What WOULD a Romney Presidency be like ?
It’s no secret where I stand politically but you will be relieved to know that I don’t intend to spend the next 5 months blogging about it.
HOWEVER … I just have to comment about the insipid Romney commercial that is flooding the airways in my state of North Carolina right now. If you haven’t heard it yet it goes like this …
We are treated to a series of clips showing a very bubbly and clean cut Mitt Romney shaking hands with his constituency, which of course includes a token black. The announcer is talking over the music and his message is …
“What would be different about a Romney Presidency? …from day one, President Romney focuses on the economy and the deficit, unleashes America’s energy resources, and stands up to China on trade. President Romney’s leadership puts jobs first."
This litany of promises reminds me of the old slogan of the depression years promising “a chicken in every pot” … never mentioning how the chickens going to get there !
And then to add icing to the cake the message ends with this line: “It’s the feeling we’ll have that our country’s back on the right track." To my ears that’s saying … we’ll be right where we were in 2000 to 2008… i.e., a pure white guy in the Oval Office and all the breaks going to big business. (The 1% will be thrilled !)
Of course I don’t agree with everything that’s gone on for the past three years but I think President Obama is doing an amazing job holding firm. In November my vote goes to him.
