November 1, 2012 – One of two people will be elected President of the United States of America. Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. This is a fact. No matter who else is on the ballot, it will only be one of those two people. They are your only possible winners in this campaign.
Here are the reasons why Barack Obama might be re-elected:
- 49.1% of American households have at least one member who receives a government welfare check of some kind. That person will vote for the person who will most likely continue sending that check, and will try to encourage another member of that household to get their “fair share.”
- 40.7% of new births are to un-married single women. That’s about 41 out of every 100 babies born to an un-married single female. Those single mothers are receiving W.I.C vouchers, welfare checks, E.B.T. cards, Section 8 housing and a host of other freebees from our government. They, too, will vote for the person who will most likely continue sending those checks because they need a sugar daddy.
- And the third reason why I believe Barack Obama might win, is because there are people who are determined to vote for a third party candidate or not vote at all, and we all know what that means. It means they are throwing there vote away and don’t give a damn about the direction our country is headed.
Some of you need to come to the realization that neither Gary Johnson or Ron Paul have a chance in hell of winning this election, so why are you voting for them? When you wake up Wednesday morning it’s going to be either Obama or Romney as your President. That is a fact you cannot deny. The question is, will you wake up Wednesday morning with a clear conscience knowing you voted for the person who has the best plan to save our Republic, or did you vote for someone who you knew had absolutely no chance in hell of winning which directly resulted in who our President would be. Think about your children and your grand children. We are 0ver $16 TRILLION in debt. You can’t even count that damn high in your lifetime.
If Mitt Romney wins our Republic might have a chance, and that’s a really big might. If on the other hand Barack Obama wins, well, based on his last four years, I give our Republic a big kiss good bye. The United States of America will never be saved. I truly believe this. It will be the end of the single greatest experiment in freedom, liberty and independence any country has ever known. The last slice of American pie will have been re-distributed, all for the selfish idea of wealth envy. Atlas will have shrugged. -JRoycroft
October 29, 2012 – Newspapers across America that had endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 have switched sides, and are now backing Mitt Romney for President.
Maybe it’s time we got the riot gear out of storage. -JRoycroft
The American people have become dangerously divided and polarized over the past four years, disastrously so. It’s critically important that the next president be able to heal this national division, and Romney is best suited to making that happen. Mitt Romney can restore fiscal order to our families, to main street and to the nation, with less government and a certain course. He can bring America back together again.
Yes, the war on coal is real. It’s very real. And it has to be stopped. Republican Mitt Romney is the man who will end this war. He has embraced coal, natural gas and our other naturally abundant fossil fuels. He advocates a common-sense national energy policy that will put millions of Americans back to work. An energy policy that includes coal, oil, natural gas and — yes — even green energy sources.
During the last four years the world has become a more dangerous place. We can’t afford four more years of a leadership vacuum. Not when in Mitt Romney voters have the choice of a strong, smart hand on the helm, a decent, caring man, who lives his faith, who loves his country and would serve it well. For all of those reasons, the Boston Herald is pleased to endorse Mitt Romney for president.
What we believe most strongly is that Romney has the pragmatic skills and commitment to address Job No. 1: get our economy humming and create many more of the jobs Americans need to take care of themselves and their families. Creating more opportunities for all Americans — not more safety net guarantees — must still be at the heart of this nation’s future if we are to prosper. We endorse Mitt Romney as the best choice toward making that happen.
The No.1 issue in our region and our nation today is how to recharge our economy and get more people working in good-paying jobs. President Barack Obama has had four years to overcome the job losses of the Great Recession he inherited, but the recovery has been too slow and too weak. It’s time for new leadership from Mitt Romney, a governor and business leader with a record of solving problems.
After nearly four years of economic stagnation, massive unemployment, record-setting debt and government intrusions into the economy that have paralyzed the private sector, the United States needs a new direction. For this reason, The Dispatch urges voters to choose Republican Mitt Romney for president in the Nov. 6 election.
Consumers must feel more confident about their own economic futures to begin spending on the products and services that power the economy. A renewed sense of confidence will spark renewed investment by American companies. Industry will return to full production and hiring will begin again. That should come with Mitt Romney in the White House.
Romney’s five-point plan for economic revival centers on energy independence, a goal that is finally achievable thanks to the natural gas boom and development of the Canadian oil sands; a better trained work force; trade that increases the demand for American goods and services; debt and deficit reduction and promoting the growth of small businesses. If implemented in urgent fashion, we believe the plan will work. Romney would simplify the tax code and create a regulatory environment that works to protect consumers and assure a fair marketplace, but doesn’t place the regulators in control of every private sector decision.
Mitt Romney gives the country the best opportunity for an economic turnaround. He has proposed tax cuts, reduced spending and getting government out of the way of business. Doing so will help create jobs, the key to a quicker recovery. Romney’s five-point plan would put an emphasis on the economy from his first day in office. While he may be overly optimistic when he says he will create 12 million jobs during his first term, he’s got the skills and experience to make it happen.
The past four years have not been good. The next four would be worse under Obama. Romney represents a real and realistic alternative. His economic policies will hold taxes low, allowing the private sector to create new jobs. More importantly, Romney brings the predictability on government regulation and taxes that businesses need to create jobs – and families need to begin buying again and thus, growing the economy.
Romney has laid out a consistent theme focused on encouraging business innovation and growth, reducing government spending and its economic footprint and educating and retraining people to take new jobs. That theme is a winner, and Congress will be receptive when Romney brings it.
As readers know, there is no doubt on the part of the editorial board here at Foster’s Daily Democrat new leadership is needed from the White House. We believe all three debates — but especially the first — support that notion. We believe that, on balance, the debates have shown Mitt Romney to be the more capable and with a vision for the future — a vision President Obama has failed to offer. On Nov. 6, we urge voters to give Mitt Romney a chance to offer the nation real hope and change.
Which is why we recommend Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican challenger, for president. The most critical issue facing the country is the economy, and when you look at the backgrounds of Romney and the president, it is clear Romney is better positioned to get the economy moving in the right direction again.
As Bard College professor Walter Russell Mead has pointed out about Obama, one or two terms as the Illinois governor who got the state government back into shape “might have prepared him for a genuinely historic role.” As it is, it’s Republican governors in Indiana, New Jersey and elsewhere who are delivering services while balancing the budget, reforming schools, standing up to public-sector unions and lowering costs. The U.S. needs a president from the same finishing school. Vote Romney.
We can’t promise things will be better four years hence if Romney is elected. However, Obama offers little but more of the same ideas under which this nation’s economy has remained stagnant. Also, Wall Street does not seem to trust Obama, which may further restrict economic growth. The Romney-Ryan plan will be more encouraging to businesses and consumers. It offers more hope for seriously dealing with debt and entitlements and more likelihood of improvement. Vote for Romney for president.
Romney has offered a 5-point plan built around boosting small businesses, calling them “our engine of economic growth” and creating energy independence by harnessing our own resources. He calls for an education policy grounded in parental choice and high standards intended to build American skills for an internationally competitive workforce. As a businessman, Romney wants to crackdown on nations including China that engage in unfair trade practices that hurt American businesses and workers. And he recognizes that it is time to for serious talk about changes to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid to make sure the entitlements remain for future generations.
Mr. Romney is an intelligent, deliberate man who built upon a successful business career with a productive stint as governor of Massachusetts. While in office, he demonstrated an ability to work across political lines that has eluded Mr. Obama, who doesn’t even command the respect of his own party elders. And while his opponents may try to paint Mr. Romney as a cold-hearted businessman, his actions speak otherwise. Mr. Romney donates 30 percent of his income to his church and to charity, a sum that eclipses the donations of most sitting politicians, including our president.
Four years ago, as America faced serious trouble at home and abroad, this news organization embraced the need for bold change to a different brand of leadership and endorsed Barack Obama for president. That assessment of the depth of the nation’s problems and the most promising solution was correct in 2008. Regrettably, it applies no less in 2012, after nearly a full term of Obama’s administration. This is why the editorial board urges voters to choose Mitt Romney for president in the Nov. 6 election. He is the leader this country needs for the future.
The nation’s lackluster economy, its high unemployment rate, massive and growing debt, growing poverty rates and a lack of leadership in the office of the presidency call for an approach in the White House that Mitt Romney can best fulfill.
Romney has made what appears to be a sincere push to the center of American politics and articulated an apparently genuine desire to create bipartisan solutions using his experience in business. And despite the acrimony that pervades all national elections, we know that Romney can work with members of the opposing party. His experience as governor of Massachusetts demonstrates that he can reach across the aisle.
Mitt Romney wants us to believe in America again. It begins with us believing in ourselves and each other. Wouldn’t it be nice for America to once again stand as one against the serious challenges we face domestically and abroad? The Sun believes in Mitt Romney and his vision for America’s future. Vote for Mitt Romney for U.S. President on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
President Obama’s greatest weakness, though, is Mitt Romney’s greatest strength, and it’s a strength we need in the White House, now more than at any time in the last 80 years: a deep knowledge and understanding of what makes the American economy run.
After two years of speeches, forums, debates, press releases, testimonials and attack ads, the presidential election yields something clear and concise. This really is all about the economy. Given Democratic President Barack Obama’s attempts over the past four years to improve it, and Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s credentials as an astute businessman who understands how money works, our endorsement goes to Romney.
A candidate has emerged from the rough and tumble of the primaries with his dignity intact. The system has produced not a demagogue but a manager, a candidate whose experience is rooted in the pragmatism of the business world rather than the ideology of partisan politics. That candidate is Mitt Romney.
America needs more than hope. It needs leadership. That is why The Post today endorses the candidacy of Mitt Romney for president of the United States. Scrape it down to bedrock, and Mitt Romney knows that there is but one issue in this campaign: America’s woeful economy, and the demonstrated inability of President Obama to cope with it.
But the core of Romney’s campaign platform, his five-point plan, at least shows he understands that reviving the economy and repairing the government’s balance sheet are imperative — now, not four years in the future. … We endorse Mitt Romney for president.
The choice is yours. Our choice is the latter. And that’s why we enthusiastically endorse Republican Mitt Romney for president of the United States. He’s an exceptionally good and decent man who is a proven leader, administrator and deft politician.
Gov. Romney, along with vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, has charted a course to protect current and soon-to-be retirees with full benefits, while restructuring how those two programs can be financed without breaking the budget. In short, seniors or soon-to-be seniors can rest assured a President Romney won’t pull the rug out from beneath them. Can Gov. Romney pull this off? We believe so.
Today, we endorse a successful leader focused on economic recovery and growth and deficit reduction. We endorse a proven manager who won’t need on-the-job training. We endorse a compromiser who offers the best hope of breaking congressional gridlock. Most of all, we endorse change. We endorse Mitt Romney for president.
Based on our current fiscal condition, a still-weak economy and a Congress deeply divided along party lines, our next president will continue to face a daunting challenge, one that must be met for the good of the country. Four years later, we find ourselves in need of change yet again. Romney must be the leader to get things moving.
Mitt Romney has succeeded as a family man, governor, entrepreneur, Olympic leader. He is a man of character, a problem-solver, a turnaround specialist. He has earned our enthusiastic endorsement. America needs President Romney.
Because we wish to see the country chart a new course to economic vitality and fiscal sanity, the Journal endorses former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to be the next president of the United States. In Romney, who we endorsed to be the Republican nominee before both the 2008 and 2012 Iowa Caucuses, we see a man possessed of successful, executive decision-making experience in both the private and public sectors who understands economics and who would apply necessary conservative principles to meeting the country’s fiscal challenges. We would rather put our faith in the blueprint put forth by Romney than in another four years of Barack Obama.
In these uncertain times, we need a leader who will chart a clear course, sweat the details and get the job done right. We believe Romney’s past performance is a predictor of his future behavior. He’s proven himself to be a successful businessman. He rescued the 2002 Winter Olympics from scandal and mismanagement. He worked with a Democrat-dominated legislature as governor of Massachusetts to close a $3 billion budget deficit — without borrowing and raising taxes.
Mitt Romney is the man who can lead the nation out of its lingering economic doldrums and restore faith in the United States. A successful executive in the public and private sector, Romney is a committed capitalist who understands that the nation’s prosperity is driven by free enterprise, not government.
The American economy is treading water in the short term and threatened by a crushing debt burden in the long term. To fix this mess, and to bring back what most Americans consider economic normalcy, we urge our readers to vote for Mitt Romney on Nov. 6. With his successful business career, Romney understands how government policies, however well-intentioned, can harm business growth and exacerbate unemployment. He will restore pragmatism, balance and fairness to a business climate that has been chilled by Obama’s ideological approach to regulation. He will end Obama’s appeasement of influential and moneyed constituencies — especially organized labor, environmentalists and trial lawyers — that has harmed entrepreneurs and, ultimately, the workers they wish they could hire.
Before casting your vote in the election for president, ask yourself two questions: First, is the United States better off today than four years ago? Even more important, will you be better off four years from now? Electing Mitt Romney as president will bring real change, giving Americans reason for hope about the future. President Barack Obama’s record provides cause only for worry.
October 23, 2012 - Here is a very well-informed, smart 13 year-old girl named Jenny.
Jenny breaks down the records between Obama and Romney with detailed information that rivals any of those talking media heads. I’m not sure, but odds are this young lady is a product of private schooling and parents that actually give a damn about her education.
Take note that the American Flag is in the background and that no teacher interrupts her during her delivery.
Compare Jenny to any of the Obama supporters that you see being interviewed in the media. Yea, right…there is no comparison. -JRoycroft
By Neal Boortz
Good morning! Actually feeling human today …. So let’s get started:
A quote for you to muse over today .. one from Joe Biden. I found it on a Tweet from @JamesPethokoukis from the American Enterprise Institute … and upon stealing his material, I started writing. Now think about this when Biden is on the stage with GOP vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan tonight. This I something that Biden said in 2008:
“For too long in this society we have celebrated
unrestrained individualism over the common community.”
Before we move ahead with this, I just must point out to you that this “common community” phrase is the core idea behind the word “communism.” No … I’m not one who screams communist at everyone with a (D) after their name, but I do recognize that the philosophy exists and I have a rather good understanding of the underpinnings of Lenin and Marx. One thing is clear … communism cannot co-exist with a society that values the individual.
Now … since I have now presented you with a quote from Joe Biden, let’s try a few more quotes. See if you can figure out who uttered these lovely phrases. This will mean a lot more to those of you who actually value your worth as an individual rather than as merely another cog in the gears of society:
Quote 1. “We must abolish the cult of the individual decisively, once and for all.”
Quote 2. “We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what’s best for society.”
Any guesses? The surprise comes later. You need to hold on a few more moments while we discuss the war against individuality.
Yes, a war – a war against the individual. A war that has been waged by the American left for decades.
Why, you might ask, would anyone want to fight the concept of individuality? Good question. Simple answer. Individualism must be fought and suppressed because the concept of the individual is completely incompatible with basic liberal doctrine.
Here’s the rub. If you recognize the existence of the individual, it then follows that you must also recognize the concept of individual rights. Among those individual rights are such pesky little nuances as – dare we say it – property rights! Among those property rights would be what our founding fathers might call the right to the fruit of your labors, or what we in our less flowery age would call the money you earn by busting your buns 60 hours a week.
If, then, there is any recognition that you, as a real flesh and blood individual human being, have any right to the money you work for, what sort of excuse can the left come up with to seize those earnings for their wonderful vote-buying income redistribution schemes?
So, you think I’m going a bit overboard here? Well, while you sit down and grip the arms of your chair for stability, let me tell you that a California congresswoman (Democrat, natch!) said back in the early 2000s that all wages really belong to the federal government. How’s that for individual property rights?
Not convinced? You still don’t believe that there’s a full-blown war on individuality raging around you? Well then, allow me to invoke the name of one of Washington’s premier class warlords, none other than the Senate’s Prince of Bloviation, the late Ted Kennedy. The unlikely event that brought forth this Kennedy gem was the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl win in (I think) 2002. Naturally, Kennedy wanted a part in the celebration, so he pushed his way to the television cameras to extol the value of teamwork. Amazingly, Kennedy tells the nation that the Patriots set a wonderful example for us all to follow at a time when we, in America, are engaged in a “war against the individual.” His words, not mine. Go plow through The Boston Globe on the Monday following that Super Bowl win to find out for yourself. Do it! You need the research practice.
Driving the point home just a bit more, what do you think this whole “diversity” thing is all about? Diversity committees – diversity seminars – diversity directors. What’s behind this love of “diversity”? Why was the University of Texas (liberal institution, in case you didn’t know) pushing “diversity” as an excuse for racial discrimination in student admissions? Easy enough. Diversity identity is group identity. Attention paid to diversity is attention paid to someone’s group status, not his or her individual identity. When you are identified according to group status, any claim to individual rights, or worth, for that matter, fade into meaninglessness.
Let’s go back through history to see, other than Teddy Kennedy, just who we have out there blasting the concept of the individual. It’s a rough ride. Hold on.
“There is the great, silent, continuous struggle: the struggle between the State and the Individual; between the State, which demands, and the individual, who attempts to evade such demands.”
That gem is from our friend, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
“The main plank in the National Socialist program is to abolish the liberalistic concept of the individual and the Marxist concept of humanity and to substitute for them the folk community, rooted in the soil and bound together by the bond of its common blood.”
The National Socialist bit should be your clue. Nazi was the acronym for Germany’s national socialist party. That quote is from Adolf Hitler. I’m reading The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich right now … you would not believe the hatred of individualism present in the Nazi regime.
Now for the two quotes at the beginning of this Nuze bit:
“We must abolish the cult of the individual decisively, once and for all.”
I left out the first word of this quote. That word is “Comrades!” This from the lips of none other than Nikita Khrushchev.
“We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society.”
Ahh. The best for last. The person who uttered those words is none other than Hillary Clinton back in 2003 when she was pushing her version of government controlled medical care.
One more quote. A quickie from Ayn Rand:
“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”
Are you ready to give up – to surrender – your individuality to the state? That is the essence of liberalism. You exist to serve the state. Remember the video at the Democrat National Convention? “The government is the only thing we all belong to.” What’s your take? Do you belong to the government? Or do you belong to yourself. That’s another choice you’ll be making on November 6th.
October 8, 2012 – A reminder of what the 2012 Presidential campaign, and all political campaigns mean to Democrats. Not that you need to be reminded, but there are some newbies out there that may need some insight.
This is the message you tell your moochers and leeches:
“So, dear voter! Are you are unhappy that there are people who have more than you have? They drive nicer cars, live in nicer homes, take nicer vacations and are going to be able to retire earlier than you? Well … we feel your pain, and we see no reason why you should have to get up before the sun and drive home in the dark to have the same lifestyle. Everybody knows that you should be able to have the lifestyle you desire, no matter how lavish, on a 40-hour work week. And if 40 hours a week is not enough to put the car you want into your garage, the flat-screen you want on your living room wall, the money you want into your bank account, and the tickets for that South Pacific cruise on your dresser, well then your friendly Democrat public servant is here to help. It’s all so simple! You just vote for us and keep us in power in Washington, and we’ll simply use the police power of government to take money away from those people who have so much more than you do, and give it to you. It’s called ‘redistribution of the wealth’ and we are your re-distributors. After all, it’s not like they actually worked for and earned that money! Everybody knows that wealth is distributed, not earned.”
So there you have it. Democrats are are your tax paid wealth re-distributors for the moochers and leeches in our wonderful welfare society of the all mighty Ruler Obama.
Now please excuse me while I go snuggle up to a bowl of my famous Roycroft Chili … that I MADE MYSELF! -JRoycroft
No, I’m not sharing!
October 7, 2012 – This story comes from Jim Geraghty / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, where he gives his insight on why the Obama campaign is struggling, and may very well lose by a good margin…
A presidential reelection campaign needs three key elements: a defense of the incumbent’s record, a successful effort to define the opposition and a compelling vision of a second term.
President Obama may well celebrate a second term in Chicago next month, but the conventional wisdom underestimates the difficulty he faces, as his campaign has distinct problems with all three elements.
His defense of his record is exceptionally weak, his effort to define Mitt Romney is nearly exhausted, and his vision for the next four years — perhaps the most important — has been largely missing from his effort this year.
October 4, 2012 – Obama sinks like the TITANIC in last nights debate. His Teleprompter was seen getting faced, yelling obscenities to the wide screen hanging in the corner of the bar where patrons were in shock watching their great Ruler stutter, stumble and fall. -JRoycroft
August 26, 2012 – Gawker Media, your basic rumor media site is attacking Mitt Romney because he has some assets based in the Caymen Islands. You may remember that the Gawker is also the site that spent a great deal of time trying to trash Sarah Palin. Didn’t work.
Gawker has published a bag full of documents, about 950 pages that are supposed to do some sort of harm to Mitt Romney, but even the legitimate media outlets are bored with the news. Apparently there is nothing in the 950 pages that Gawker has released that comes as any surprise or “new” news to anyone who cares. In other words, Mitt Romney has nothing to hide and has done nothing illegal.
By the way, the Gawker just happens to be located in the Caymen Islands.
According to Chris Rovzar at New York Magazine, Gawker is owned by Gawker Media Group, Inc, a Cayman Islands Entity.
