Romney - Right Guy for Right Now

There has never been a time in history when your vote is more important than it is today.

If you are like me your are probably fed up with the attack ads, mailbox full of flyers, and seemingly endless robo calls. Well it's almost over. 

Maybe all of this has put you off a bit, you haven't voted and may even be thinking about setting this one out. 

Bad idea. 

There has never been a time in history when your vote is more important than it is today. 

We need your vote and we need it for Mitt Romney. Here's why. 

If you're senior on Social Security or Medicare you have nothing to fear from a Romney administration. The way Obama will need money to fund his welfare state and subsidy economics over the next four years, no revenue source under federal government control will be safe. 

If you are approaching retirement within the next 10 years you have nothing to fear from a Romney administration. 

If you are younger, regardless of who is elected, you better plan your own financial future. Romney will give you a better chance at it. By the way those capital gains taxes Obama wants' to raise - those are the taxes on the growth of your 401K. 

If you're out of work you have a better chance at getting back to work sooner with Romney. 

If you have just graduated from college and cannot find work, recovery will be faster under Romney and your chances at a good job will be much better. This especially important if you are carrying a large student loan debt. 

If you're in college or trade school and can vote, your best bet is the guy that will have jobs waiting when you graduate and that guy is Mitt Romney. 

If we slog along for four more years  at an anemic growth rate, grow the national debt to $20 trillion or so and expand the welfare state, it won't matter much if your retired, retiring, working, graduating or just looking for a job. There won't be much of a future for any of us. 

Mitt Romney can get us back on track. He can turn the economy around. He can create the jobs we need in the private sector. He can do all of that and take care of those who need the safety net of social services.  

Mitt Romney is right for right now. Be sure to VOTE.

Sorry to disagree. Romney's been on on opposite sides of so many positions that there is no way to know where he really stands. The man has no core.
Bill Stokes November 05, 2012 at 02:26 PM
Doc your endorsement rings of the typical Republic double speak. The only truism is that the importance of this election cannot be over estimated. By endorsing Romney you are advocating for a known liar and self serving politico as our President. Everything in your endorsement is not only incorrect, but the opposite is true. It sounds like you have succumbed to the Fox News mantra of the extreme right.

So sez the old white guy with a comfortable income who must not have any daughters or nieces or gay friends or know anyone with a handicapped child or who has suffered debilitating injury and can't work or has had their house blown away in a storm or happens to not be christian. If this is you, then, by all means, vote Republican. But I'm hoping more folks understand that we are all in this world together and cooperation will get us farther than greed and self-centeredness.
Joseph Robert November 05, 2012 at 03:02 PM
Doc loves liars, evidently. Politifact has proven that 42 PERCENT OF ROMNEY'S COMMENTS HAVE BEEN LIES! In comparison, 28 percent of Obama's comments have been incorrect. http://www.politifact.com/personalities/mitt-romney/
Joseph Robert November 05, 2012 at 03:03 PM
Ditto!
Joseph Robert November 05, 2012 at 03:03 PM
Romney can’t be trusted, as Republican leaders, media and experts agree! Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican and Sec. of State under President George W. Bush: “I’m not quite sure which governor Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy.” http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/10/25/1086721/powell-romney-foreign-policy/?mobile=nc Politifact: 42 percent of Romney’s comments in recent months have been false, much higher than Obama’s comments. http://www.politifact.com/personalities/mitt-romney/ Salt Lake City Tribune, largest daily paper in Republican and Mormon-led Utah: “Romney (is) willing to say anything to get elected.” http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/opinion/55019844-82/romney-obama-state-president.html.csp Rick Santorum, former Republican Senator: “This is someone (Romney) who doesn’t have a core. He has been on both sides of almost every single issue in the past 10 years. “ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av3q7-a-ayc&feature=player_embedded#! FactCheck.org: “Romney distorts facts on Jeep, auto bailout.” http://factcheck.org/2012/10/romney-distorts-facts-on-jeep-auto-bailout/ Brit Humes of Fox News: “Republicans do not trust Romney” http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/10/30/brit_hume_republicans_do_not_trust_romney.html

Agree completely with you, DRaymond. Sorry, Doc. Romney's not the right guy for now or any other time.
cherylwithac November 05, 2012 at 03:29 PM
Ditto, ditto, ditto!!!
cherylwithac November 05, 2012 at 03:32 PM
Love it, heartdawg--and who says that Romney is the jobs guy, Doc??? Where do you get that idea--from Romney's stump speech or something?
cherylwithac November 05, 2012 at 03:32 PM
I agree absolutely, Bill.
cherylwithac November 05, 2012 at 03:34 PM
I agree with the Salt Lake Tribune: "Romney is willing to say anything to get elected." Hence all of the lies he's told.
Rob November 05, 2012 at 06:16 PM
The Patch needs to ask a cross section of people. Having an old white male give an opinion sounds like an ad for Fox News...ask a woman who remembers what women fought for and knows what life was like to before the 60s.
Rob November 05, 2012 at 06:17 PM
Under Romney, the rights gained for minorities will be set back..
Joshua Streeter November 06, 2012 at 01:55 AM
Tell your gay neighbors you chose money over their civil rights.
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 03:42 AM
It is perfectly obvious that Patch readers are all for govt support. They all want a govt that takes from those who work and pay taxes and gives to those who want the govt to take care of them. Then they use excuses like homosexual rights and political campaign inconsistencies (has Obama ever been consistent in anything other than spending money we don't have? that is his way of buying votes). Obama said EVERYTHING to get elected and we know exactly what we got and what we will get - more spending, more borrowing, more debt, more welfare, more taxes on those who are willing to work, more whining, more windmills and solar panels that don't work, more electric car subsidies, more waste than ever before in history and all liberals can come up with is homosexuals, minorities, liberal talking points and so-called "inconsistencies." How about a real plan for the future - a balanced budget? Jobs? Lower taxes, smaller govt, less waste of taxpayers money? Oh, those things don't matter as long as you get your handouts and freebies. If Obama wins, we all lose. If Romney wins, only the slackers lose.
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 03:46 AM
You must have recorded a Biden/Obama/Pelosi/Reid speech. Thanks for reminding us of all the mindless talking points. One simple point - what would you do without corporations? Grow your own food?
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 03:50 AM
Oh sure, we are all in this together as long as the govt continues taking from those who take care of themselves and giving to those who need the govt to change their diapers.
Rob November 06, 2012 at 05:56 AM
Hope those who vote for Romney/Ryan never have a per-existing condition!
Joshua Streeter November 06, 2012 at 07:22 AM
Tell your wife, your sister, your daughter, your niece.... No, better yet, tell your granddaughter that your pay is more important than her equal pay.
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 09:20 AM
Whine on.....
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 09:22 AM
Equal work always equals equal pay....it's just that so many want something for nothing.
Doc Webb's Bay Post November 06, 2012 at 12:12 PM
No positive Obama comments. What I find interesting about the comments to this post is there are no positive statements about what Obama will do in his next term. A lot of sniping and whining but nothing new about how everyone or anyone, for that matter, will be better off. The problem seems to be a lot of people are more taken by the image of the Obama presidency than the substance. It would appear the Democrats don't have a new plan, just an old one that is not working. I'll certainly agree Romney is far from the ideal presidential candidate and the Republicans could have done better. But Romney will not dig us deeper into debt, continue with a slow recovery that leaves millions out of work, foist a healthcare plan on business and industry that will smoother job growth and let our position in the world erode. If you want a job, want to work for your family, have a future and see this country improve Romney is still the best choice.

Jack Sprat, how will you feel if someday you become disabled and unable to work--will you turn down the Social Security disability benefits to which you're entitled (assuming that you've been paying into the system), or would you prefer to end up living in a cardboard box on the street?
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 04:10 PM
Social Security is not an "entitlement." It is a mismanaged (by every administration in the last 30 years) govt insurance scheme that is desperately in need of reform. I am not depending on our govt for anything, no matter who is elected. Those who are whining about all the benefits they might lose are in for a lot of disappointments - we cannot continue borrowing a trillion dollars a year to fund govt support programs. Obama does not have a money tree or a magic wand, he is simply buying votes with money we do not have. Anyone with a ballooning credit card balance and other debt obligations understands the problem and the consequences. Hence all the bankruptcies and foreclosures.
Jack Sprat November 06, 2012 at 04:12 PM
Yes, and he is the second coming and can also walk on water. Thanks for all the misinformation.
cherylwithac November 06, 2012 at 05:49 PM
Social Security disability insurance is an entitlement for those who have paid into the system and later become disabled and unable to work. If you have enough funds in your bank account to last you the rest of your days if you become disabled, good for you. Others don't. Would you like to see them living in cardboard boxes on the street rather than draw on the Social Security funds into which they have paid? Moreover, to receive Social Security disability insurance, an applicant is required to prove via physicians' statements that he or she is unable to work. Most people wait for years before receiving a dime.
Joshua Streeter November 06, 2012 at 09:29 PM
Doc-You wrote an article about Romney. Common sense would dictate that the majority of comments would be about Romney.
Red November 09, 2012 at 01:57 PM
Doc, It's Friday now and I have to say Mittens Is in the right place, right now at the right time. California.
