This is truly a tale of two very different candidates and the future of this nation has never hung in the balance as it does now. America will move forward or backward, depending on who wins the White House in November.
Take for example President Obama and his recent statement that the Private Sector is “doing fine.” Republicans and Mitt Romney zeroed in on the President’s statement and are now trying to pull the proverbial wool over the eyes of the American people. Republicans want you to believe that the Private Sector is not doing fine. But when you take the President’s full statement in context, you’ll get the full truth of what he said.
“We’ve created 4.3 million jobs over the last…27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone. The private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government, oftentimes cuts initiated by, you know, governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government and who don’t have the same kind of flexibility of the federal government in dealing with fewer revenues coming in.”
Anyone with a thread of common sense will tell you that Mr. Obama is correct. The Private Sector is doing fine – trillions in profits and millions hired since Obama took office. The problem the economy is facing now has more to do with the Public Sector and the ease with which state governors are laying off public workers like police officers, firefighters and teachers.
Mitt Romney couldn’t wait to jump on the criticize Obama bandwagon. But in his haste to take the President’s statement out of context and focus only on “…the private sector is doing fine” phrase, Romney unknowingly allowed the American people to take a ‘peek’ at his true intentions – to kill the jobs of police officers, firefighters, teachers and other public sector employees.
He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.
So a President who wants to get firemen, policemen and teachers back to work and a Republican candidate who think the message of Wisconsin is to cut the jobs of firemen, policemen and teachers.
Yes, this is truly a tale of two very different candidates and the future of this nation hangs in the balance.
