Recently, The Enterprise published an “Our View” article titled “Job figures may help Obama save his” and I respond with this opposing position:
Almost four years ago when Barack Obama was elected president, he became the first president elected in nearly 50 years (since John Kennedy previously in 1960) to not have ever served in the executive (administrative) branch of government at the federal, state or local levels. And also not in the executive branch of the private sector either.
As a result, the nation continues to suffer through a prolonged economic recession aggravated by his lack of his knowledge from having no such prior executive (administrative) experience needed to guide him to resolve the recession and it perpetuates. The stubborn national unemployment rate still hovers over 7 percent and the national debt has grown by more than $5 billion since Obama took office. The national credit rating has fallen from AAA to AA, and gas prices are now twice the rate then.
Mitt Romney is a better choice for president. With a background of sufficiently related experience, unlike the case with the current president, Romney has previously served as governor of Massachusetts and as the CEO of Bain Capital and the president of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games Organizing Committee. Therefore, he has the right background of executive (administrative) experience necessary to understand how to provide the stewardship necessary to end the current prolonged economic recession. Therefore, he deserves our votes. To learn more, visit www.mittromney.com and www.gop.com.
President Obama’s leadership and economic policies have failed. Therefore, local voters should vote Republican on Nov. 6 for a needed change.
