Romney an unhealthy choice

Heavens to Murgatroyd!

What we’ve got here, ladies and gentlemen, is a wannabe president (Mitt Romney) who is claiming that if he’s elected, he’ll abolish President Barack Obama’s health care plan. I ask all of you out there of sound mind and body this: Wouldn’t you rather have a president who’s looking out for the health and wellness of the people? And have a president who’s sensitive, caring, kind and reachable running things in Washington, D.C.?

Or a guy who likes being able to fire people (again, Romney), and take away a really good, solid chance for America to get healthy again?

You people, look around your own town. Whaddya see? I’ll tell you what I see: rampant lingering sickness, rotting teeth in the mouths of young adults and obesity through the roof! Some Spokanites are among some of the most unhealthy-looking human beings I’ve ever seen.

If you and the health of your families matter, turn a cold shoulder to Romney in November. He wants nothing more than to keep you as unhealthy as some of you are right now.

And he means it, most certainly.
