Obama details make Romney the only sane choice

To the editor:

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney just has not given the American public enough details to trust him with our country. Oh really?

Of course, in 2008, then presidential candidate Barack Obama gave us many details regarding his plans for America.


His detailed plan included "hope and change." He promised "an open and transparent government." He promised "no more secrecy." He promised "to get the economy back on track." He promised to reduce health care premiums by $2,500 per family. He promised to "put more people back to work." He told us there is "no liberal America, there is no conservative America, there is a United States of America."

So, I ask, where were the details in Obama's quest for election in 2008?

His leadership skills were never questioned. His qualifications were never investigated. He had no plan. He didn't need a plan because he spoke so eloquently. He didn't need details because he was such a breath of fresh air. He didn't need a plan because it was so nice to hear him speak without massacring the English language. He didn't need details because he was so likeable. He didn't need a plan because he was so brilliant and wonderfully self confident. He didn't need details because he had such a beautiful smile. On these attributes Barack Obama was swept into the most powerful position in the world.

But what did we get? In Obama's own words, "We are five days away from fundamentally changing the United States of America."

I agree; that he did. Four years of further dividing our country. Four years of economic and personal depression. Four years of little or no employment improvement. Four years of the housing market in continuous decline. Four years of higher fuel prices. Four years of unprecedented debt. Four years of crushing regulations. Four years of diminished standing in the world. And lastly, the first terrorist attack on our people on the anniversary of 9/11.

In Obama's own words, "In the face of impossible odds, people who love this country can change it."

This time I, too, am hoping for a change. I will cast my vote for a man whom I believe will return our nation to some semblance of sanity.

If you love what America stands for, if you believe in the American dream that brought our grandparents to this nation, we must take America back. We must vote for a man of substance and integrity, a man who can turn around a nation in turmoil. We must cast our vote for Mitt Romney.
