America Needs A New Ronald Reagan in 2016

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

America is prejudiced. Americans do not like Mormons, that must be the explanation for Barack Obama’s defeat of Mitt Romney.

Mormons are a cult. They have dozens of wives. They don’t drink coffee, beer or wine. Utah is cold in the winter, and Robert Redford lives there. I never liked Donny and Marie Osmond.

These are some of the excuses, with the words changed, if Obama had lost the election yesterday.  “The black guy had his chance,” Tom the Mechanic, from upstate Iowa, stated as part of his explanation of voting Republican, after supporting Obama in 2008.

Of course, this is in jest, but the reality was, Mitt Romney didn’t click with America. Whether it was the prep school upbringing, never having a Budweiser at a football game, the religion that most of America looks at with some level of suspicion, or his lack of cajones in pouncing on Obama during the debate over the Libya coverup when Obama danced deftly around the question about embassy security.

He should have said, “Mr. President, can you just answer the damn question? We all know the ambassadors work hard, but can you please explain why he is now dead?”

America needs a new Ronald Reagan.  One born in the 1960’s or 1970’s. We need a leader who came up through the ranks, who relied on student loans and hard work to pay for his or her education.  2016 will be wide open for new ideas to clean up the preceding eight years of moving toward socialism, taxes and debt.

One Week From Election Day – Choose Wisely

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

We’ve all heard that one vote makes a difference, and that is oh-so true in the swing states, and down to the micro level of swing counties.  This election can shape not just the next four years, but possibly the next twenty years with all the changes Obama can make as a lame-duck leader with no recourse.

Obama Care is step one.  Granting illegal residents the ability to stay in this country with no penalty is another, which can trickle down to the state level where states are considering offering driver’s licenses to the undocumented.  Is it beyond the realm of possibility that unfriendly nations send people to Mexico and to then cross the border with the hordes and then find a way to get state-issued identification which would now allow them to board airplanes, interstate buses and enter government buildings?

For those of you who voted for Obama because he seemed cooler and more in touch than John McCain, now is your chance to vote with your brain rather than someone you would like to play a pickup game of hoops with.  Mitt Romney has some flaws, no doubt.  He went to private schools and has possibly never mowed a lawn or picked out a head of lettuce at the grocery store, so his ability to relate to me and you is close to nil.  That said, I don’t have to like my boss or my coach or my leader so long as I believe he or she can do a great job in moving us in the right direction as a country.

Let’s have Obama go down in history as a nice guy who was elected to the highest office, something like Jimmy Carter, but also be remembered for the horrible job they did while in office of not moving the economy in the correct direction and of his unwillingness to reach across the aisle to work together.  Obama’s way or the highway has been to common a theme.  Let’s change that on November 6th.
