Study, then vote Obama

Let’s not look at personality or sound bites. Let’s watch the debates with the sound on. Let’s study what we have heard.

Mitt Romney still cannot list any concrete ways in which he would pay for his tax cuts. He cannot explain how he can say that he is an expert on job creation, when his own state was 47th in the nation in job creation during his stint as governor. He still cannot explain why he would insult half of our nation and call them victims.

Let’s put the sensationalism aside and look at what these guys are saying. President Barack Obama wants to grow the economy so that everyone has a chance to benefit. Romney will do just like he did at Bain Capital; he’ll harvest the resources of this great nation and funnel all the gains to those already at the top.
