Romney = Bush 3.0; spare us

By From page A12 | November 04, 2012

A Romney presidency would clearly (despite Romney’s inconsistencies) be Bush’s third term, only worse.

Foreign policy: Romney’s statements are ignorant and insulting; his advisors include 17 bellicose, incompetent Bush retreads. President Obama ended one war, started none and got Osama bin Laden.

Domestic policy: The Romney-Ryan platform proposes massive tax cuts for the richest 1 percent, replacing Medicare with a coupon, and handing Social Security to the financiers who gave us the Bush crash. Obama has turned the economy around from the brink of a second Great Depression.

Track record: As a financier, Romney borrowed millions to buy companies, guaranteeing himself huge returns regardless of what happened to the company or its employees. As governor, he vetoed 800 bills and now disavows health care, his only accomplishment. Obama, despite Republican obstructionism, has fought for jobs, health care, equal pay and equal rights.

Vote for President Obama again, not Romney-Bush.
