Mitt Romney For President
Pensacola News Journal
Four years ago, we recommended Barack Obama be elected. He offered himself as someone who could bridge the wide chasm between Democrats and Republicans. However, after four years, the situation has worsened.
However, Obama failed to adequately address the rising national debt that will cripple future generations. He has not pushed the approval submitted two years ago by the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, also known as the Simpson-Bowles plan, that called for higher taxes to bring the debt under control. Congress also has failed to take the debt seriously, instead passing the buck, or in this case, $16 trillion of them.
As he did in 2008, Mitt Romney is campaigning that “Washington is broken”: that Congress and the president can neither legislate nor lead effectively. We believe he has the experience and temperament to start the repairs. If elected, we urge him to gather key Democrats on Nov. 7 and start to find solutions to our problems. If there are effective Democrats in the current Cabinet, keep them in place. The country hungers for statesmanship. Romney prides himself on his bipartisan leadership in Massachusetts that led to education and health care improvements. He must deliver that to Capitol Hill as quickly as possible.
Also, we continue to be frustrated at the millions of unemployed – about 20,000 of our neighbors in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties – and the growing number of people on food stamps, despite signs the economy is recovering. We’re confident Romney can find a way to get people working again.
Mitt Romney is who we recommend leads this nation for the next four years
During a speech to the Republican National Convention, Romney’s wife, Ann, promised that her husband would not fail if elected. We hope she is right.
