We've tried charisma and inexperience for the last four years and it has achieved little for us but promises that can't be kept, crushing national debt, and loss of international respect. Now it is time for competence and proven managerial ability, without foreign apology.
Clearly the Obama administration is dead in the water, bereft of new ideas and unable to turn the economy around. It has pursued a legislative agenda so far to the left as to make effective compromise impossible, leading to paralysis in our government. Obama has embraced extreme social policies such as gay marriage that offend people of religious faith.
Obama has lacked the courage to tell the American people the truth about the perilous state of our nation's finances. His promises are based on endless borrowed money. He pretends that "taxing the rich" can be an easy solution when that won't come close to closing the deficit. The solutions he proposes constitute a mere drop in the bucket compared to the size of the problem.
Mitt Romney brings to this crisis an abundance of experience as governor of a major state. As a businessman his specialty was turning around failing companies. He applied this experience in rescuing the Salt Lake City Olympics from corruption and failure, proving that his business experience is applicable in the public sector.
Romney is the man we need now as president, a man with the courage to make the hard decisions, a man with the leadership abilities to restore American confidence, rebuild our economy, and run our government with businesslike prudence and efficiency.
Please join me in voting for Mitt Romney for president.
