Mitt Romney: A Personal Perspective From Texas

With your indulgence, below is a personal perspective from our daughter in Texas.

In this election cycle, she and a few friends started, SWARM (Smart Women Against Rampant Media) as a response to our oft-times biased media. To quote them, “We are a group of women who are deeply concerned for our nation. We reject the media’s deceptive messages and seek truth wherever it is found. We are mobilizing to ensure the success of our country! Please join us! We’ve heard it said that bad things happen when good people do nothing… We can do this together. Help us take back our country!” You can follow them on Facebook here, or on their blog, Women for Truth, here. Their advocacy for truth is commendable and hopeful that it becomes a standard for many.

I have posted Leslie’s recent Facebook entreaty, as I believe it is reflective of many of the American voters who support Mitt Romney, and succinctly sums up how many feel. Pictured are her two boys.

I want to thank my Facebook friends for respectfully supporting (or quietly ignoring) my vocal support of Governor Romney during this election season. I appreciate the lack of severe and bitter words and have enjoyed the civil and enlightening conversations that have been spurred by this amazing thing we call democracy!

I have had the opportunity to meet Mitt Romney on a couple of occasions. Years ago, he complimented me on my cute baby and his name (win), and once, not so long ago, I even ate dinner sitting immediately next to him. I watched him eat his salad, you guys. :) I know that Mitt Romney is only running for president because of a genuine, deep, and abiding love which he has for this country. He truly wants to serve the American people. He has been blessed in his life, his family is amazing, his business success speaks for itself, and he feels that he owes something big to this country where he was able to create such a wonderful life. That is what he told me (and others) that night. He sought the advice of the people in that room. He wanted to know what my concerns were as a stay-at-home mom. He is humble. He is aware of the down-trodden and the needy and wants to help them effectively. He supports mothers and working women. He prays and acknowledges that we are all children of God. He is the real deal, and I am so proud to support him with my vote.

My family has supported Mitt since 2007 (see photo of my baby boys below)! We have been on Mitt’s team through thick and thin, we have taken hits with Mitt for our common beliefs, we have supported him and Ann, we have prayed for him and for our country, and it seems so surreal to me that tomorrow is the big day. I have voted for Mitt so many times, and I am so proud to have cast my vote for him again, here in Texas.

Whatever the outcome is tomorrow (or next week or whenever this ends), I know that all will be well. I trust a loving Heavenly Father and I know that because of His love for me and because of the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ, my family will be blessed no matter who is President. I feel peace because of that knowledge. America is a blessed land; there is no doubt.

My speech is almost over. Mitt’s words tonight. He is asking for my vote as he asks for yours! “Our children will graduate into exciting careers that are worthy of their qualifications. Our seniors will be confident that their retirement is secure. Americans will have good jobs, good pay, and good benefits. Our veterans will come home to a bright future. We will have confidence that our lives are safe and our livelihoods are secure.

If you are ready for that kind of change — if you want this to be a turning point in America’s course — join us and vote Tuesday for the kind of leadership that these times demand.

This is the most important election of our lifetime — and every vote counts. We are hours away from the better future America deserves.”

Go MITT!

Why Mitt Romney! My Top Ten.


Mitt Romney Central has produced nearly 5,000 posts seeking to educate, enlighten and advocate for principles of freedom and for American values, with a key focus on Mitt Romney, his message, and cause. There is plenty of substance to review for those wishing to troll through the writings that each of us have posted on MRC. That said, each of us have been encouraged to take a moment and highlight what matters most to us in this election, and how Mitt Romney personifies such – which is tough by any measure (and not for any absence of substance). National Review Online recently submitted a poster of 689 reasons to defeat Obama. Contrarily, we are trying to distill our Romney positives down to our top three to ten reasons – why to vote for Mitt! There is so much to choose from, evidenced by our prolific writings of the past.

As a prelude, this is America’s Defining Moment and America demands a leader that defines our times, one who has been prepared for this moment; not in accolades of flattery, but in the substance of wisdom derived from knowledge applied through a lifetime of experience.

Here goes -

1. Character: It matters, and Mitt Romney’s life is simply a reflection of his character, to every whit. You see it in his devotion and love for his wife, Ann, and his family; You see it in his personal associations, associations that have lasted and endured through many years; you see it in those whom he has served throughout his lifetime; you see it in those affected and touched through his many endeavors; and, you see it in his tenderness to those in need or who he has just met. You can know the true mettle or character of a man by his legacy, his family, his friends and associations measured over time. Those who stand with Mitt don’t just know of him, they know him, having seen him in both public and private moments – he is the same. I know Mitt, and I know those who have known him most of their lives – Mitt Romney stands uniquely measured as a man of great character, far surpassing any whom I have known. You can trust him!

2. Competence: Wisdom is gained through experiential knowledge; through failure and success. Mitt Romney’s life experiences in business, philanthropy, service and government are unequaled by any who has served or sought the office of President of the United States in my lifetime. Wisdom gained through experience combined with principles and values aligned with family, faith, God and country are the measure of Mitt Romney. His depth of knowledge, experience and wisdom define his competence, proven through a lifetime of success.

3. Capacity: The capacity for contribution can be measured in many ways. However, I have not known anyone with a greater well of capacity to serve our country as President of the United States. Capacity is enabled by ability and availability, and Mitt Romney has all. A recent article noted the sacrifice Mitt Romney has made to serve our Country, having forgone nearly $2 billion in earnings and wealth creation, that he might make himself available to serve others! Even so, the capacity of the man is measured by the depth of his willing heart to place country and countrymen, and his family and God first.

4. Principled: Principles are like friends wherein we tend to be attracted to those most aligned with our own. Mitt chooses friends of equal character and principles. The point that his family is a reflection to every whit of how he has lived his life is a further illustration of the very principles that guide him. I am aligned with and respect the principles that have shaped the life of Mitt Romney. His devotion to family, faith, God and country are without question. The manner in which his life reflects these devotions and the underlying foundations of honesty, integrity, ethics, trust and character are further evidenced in his legacy and what those who know him say about him.

5. Integrity: Mitt’s business career speaks volumes of his integrity. Without equivocation, a lifetime of business successes, failures and association reflect one’s integrity. Mitt Romney is unchallenged by any who have known or worked with him as a man of stellar integrity. This matters, especially in governing and in Washington DC, or in any Statehouse for that matter. Too many men and women of good integrity have been swayed and influenced by the power in governing offices. I have confidence that Mitt Romney will not be influenced by contrary forces, nor compromised by the flattery of office or the power therein. He is who he is and we can trust him, with assurance that he will stand resolute and duty bound. He takes none of this to himself, recognizing the service in office is just that service – it isn’t about him, nor will it ever be. His service is a testament to my confidence.

6. Experience: There is not much to say here other than no one has been so prepared with a lifetime of experience. Mitt Romney’s life’s preparation in business, philanthropy, and government is unparalleled. Further, his life’s experience has been filled with innumerable opportunities, and at times insurmountable challenges, and in each one he has equaled or surpassed expectations. His successes in life’s experiences, and his failures, have shaped him and guided him to this defining moment for America’s history.

7. Resolve: Mitt Romney, contrary to the main stream media, is a man firm and resolute in standards and principles, and the decisions he undertakes are aligned therewith. He is open-minded, but not open-principled. He listens, measures all points against principles and values that matter, and moves with effectiveness and resolution to what is right. He is not one to capitulate to the situational standards of society.

8. Values: Mitt Romney’s values are traditional American values in every way. America is at a crossroads and needs a leader who reflects the traditional values of family, faith, God and America. We require a leader who will stand resolute against the fiery darts of those who would undermine that which matters. We need someone to lead who will stand for traditional marriage, life, family, freedom and liberty; someone who can and will lead with purpose and perspective; someone who understands the needs of the one, and the needs of the many and serve them accordingly. We need a man who cares – such is Mitt Romney; his life is a reflection of such, as most recently reported in the media.

9. Leadership: Leadership demands certain critical skill sets, including but not limited to, listening, analytics, problem solving, decision making, knowledge and the capacity to assimilate information, communication, empathy, wisdom and experience. Mitt Romney has proven himself in each of these areas. Whether in business, charitable service or government, he has clearly demonstrated leadership. You cannot lead where you have not been, and Mitt Romney leads. Whether with companies he started, or with the Olympics, or in the Statehouse as Governor, he didn’t ask of anyone what he wasn’t willing to do himself. A leader doesn’t mandate or direct, they inspire, motivate and draw people to a common objective. Mitt Romney will never ask of anyone what he doesn’t ask of himself!

10. Intelligence: Having been accused of being “wicked smart”, Mitt Romney is brilliant. His capacity to garner and retain knowledge, assimilate information and simplify complexity is unmeasured. I have seen him in innumerable circumstances where he has illustrated, without arrogance or condescension, his intelligence. His want to understand and his capacity to retain information, facts and data is amazing. He has a proven track record of applying what he knows in the highest and best use and for the purposes intended. In business it served the interests of his investors, business associates and clients; in service, his counsel, advice and leadership touched the lives of those whom he served in a significant manner; as Governor, the people of Massachusetts were greatly rewarded with a fiscally responsible government that served the people well, including better education and lower taxes with quality government service.

Simply summarized, Mitt Romney is everything Barack Obama isn’t!

Waking Up? Hispanics in NV and CO

The Hispanic Leadership Fund has just released a number of videos that are having a profound affect on the Hispanic communities in Nevada and Colorado! Given the tight race in these two states, the Hispanic vote is critical. By every measure; social and family values, economics, immigration and foreign policy, the Hispanic community should be aligned with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The positions, values and principles espoused by Mitt Romney serve the needs of the Hispanic community, as they do the needs of all Americans. Those who have immigrated to the US from Latin countries are some of the hardest working people I know, and they are as aligned with Mitt Romney and the majority of Americans on family and social values.

Take a look at these videos and share where you can in key swing states. This needs to go viral in our Hispanic communities.

This is Why Romney Will Win! America Has Awakened.

Although briefly mentioned in the Rasmussen and Gallup Polls, the energy and support behind Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is not simply a statistic, it is a physical manifestation of people who are committed to something greater than self – real, everyday people like Gina in Colorado (see below). Numbers or statistics do not accurately reveal how substantive and consequential this energy and movement truly is for change in America! Millions of Americans have awakened to Romney’s call; a call to believe in, and restore, America to his founding principles of freedom and liberty; a call to take back what has been lost these past four years; a call to carry on the torch of freedom lifted by the ‘greatest generation’ that has preceded us!

Mitt Romney is not just drawing crowds of people in the tens of thousands in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada and elsewhere; he is drawing crowds of energized Americans who are coming together with a purpose, and to a cause that is greater than any one of us. Mitt Romney has inspired us again and millions of Americans are seeing the reality of what can be with true leadership in things that matter. We are no longer left to wallow in the wastelands of false hope and hype, nor are we wont to be relegated to the oppression and decline of the past four years. As Americans, we are wont to leave a free and stronger America to our progeny. We have found in Mitt Romney a leader who puts his country and fellow countrymen first, and who can, through experienced leadership, restore this great nation to its exceptional role in the world.

Having spoken with some who attended the rally at Red Rock, Colorado, where 10,000+ gathered, I have learned that there was a contingent of Democrats who interceded before the secured entry, and with presumed authority sought to turn away the crowds saying that Red Rock was full, hopeful that they could disrupt attendance at the rally. In spite of this deception, people were not dissuaded and pressed on, many having walked nearly 5 miles to and from the amphitheater to see and hear Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The energy is real and is manifest in each who has attended rallies around America.

Below is an inspiring story of Gina who attended in Red Rock. Gina typifies the feelings and expressions of the tens of millions who are standing with Mitt Romney – standing and sustaining Mitt Romney with confidence in his proven capacity, experience and message to lead our nation!

Let us not doubt the impact we can have as we come together in this great cause.

War on Women? Guest Post: Barbara Hiller Johnson

Barbara Johnson and her husband Mark Chapin Johnson are dear friends in California. Barbara is quite the satirist, but her Barbs are quite reflective, insightful and strike a chord that resonates with many Americans. She has a unique perspective on the ‘War on Women’! Enjoy.

What ‘War On Women’?

Yesterday I was feeling nostalgic so I started perusing old black and white family pictures from years gone by. I came across a photo of my mother in her late teens lined up with a group of her girlfriends all wearing miniskirts, shorts or pants in the style of the old Annette Funicello movies at a camp ground. You might say, ‘so what?’ Well, this picture was taken in the late 1950′s in Iran. This is the same country where today a woman at the very least would be arrested for such indecent clothing. You see, I hear every day from our President, while hopping from university to university, preaching about this ‘War on Women’, and I keep looking to see where this war is being waged. I could certainly understand if the opposition candidate was a Rick Santorum type, but it’s Mitt Romney! You know, the moderate from Massachusetts! I guess if you say it often enough it becomes fact and there are plenty of young and impressionable women who believe this guy when he says if he’s not re-elected they would forfeit 50 years of progress. Hmmm! I bet there are a few women in Iran who would jump at the opportunity of by passing Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy and go back to those easy days and I have no doubt there are plenty of women in Egypt that are now considering the option of what it might be like if Barry Obama had stopped supporting the Islamists in their country. It is so very difficult to listen to 20 year old college girls trying to scare someone like me about the perils of a Romney Presidency. The poor girls are so brain washed that most of their cells have turned dormant and refuse to process thought on their own. Somehow, their college professors, the media and all the so called women’s groups reached into this immature casing of hormones and emotion and filled it up with the ultimate Halloween boogie man.

I must say I am not the most tolerant person I know, especially when it comes to low forms of IQ in human form. So, you can just imagine how hard it must be to smile and try to put some sense into a mind of a young girl who has not yet had the opportunity to lift a finger to support herself. She has been fed, clothed and educated throughout the years without a moment of doubt that all will be provided for her. She has a cell phone with internet connection, an assortment of computers, all the cute and cuddly accessories of a college life, most likely in pink, and of course the tiniest little skirts assuring the attention of the opposite sex. She speaks passionately about the terrible possibilities of how we might all end up barefoot and pregnant with men in charge of every aspect of our lives. I listen and listen while she spews the Chicago mob machine’s talking points on how to get women’s votes. I’ve heard it all before. I heard it when a 30 year old female law student testified in front of Congress about how she needed her Catholic University to pay for her contraception. I heard it when all the overpaid starlets of Hollywood spoke at the Democratic National Convention. How does one even approach such an empty vessel? My grandfather used to say the worse curse on the planet is be stuck with dumb person, and here I am. Funny, no one paid for my birth control and somehow I managed, and funny how thirty years ago no one I knew complained about paying for services such as a college education and most of us worked, sometimes, at more than two jobs! It’s funny how we all took pride in our achievements and never expected handouts. In my day it was shameful to be on any form of welfare and that included your parents. Our motto was ‘Hear Me Roar!’ and sadly yours is ‘Give Me More!’

I’m not sure what you think you’re achieving for women these days. If it’s equal pay you should look at the White House for paying its women staff 18% less according to government data. If you’re looking for sexual equality, well, you win, I guess. My only conclusion from your level of whining and expectation is that you truly believe that you are not now, or ever will be; competent enough to take care of yourself and that you would need either your parents or the government to provide for your every whim. My generation fought for the freedom to be responsible for ourselves, to achieve as far as we could or wanted to achieve, to be in charge our destiny. I’m saddened to see your generation is about expectations to have others do for you. Who is enslaved with shackles now, you or me? It is interesting that when it came to voting for a woman to reach the White House more women voted for the good looking younger man. Even Oprah, the queen of women’s issues put aside her life’s work to choose color over gender.

So little girl, I feel sorry for you. Not because there might be a chance any real progress in opportunity for women will be thwarted in the future, but for the lack of pride and individual accomplishment I see in you today. We have had a right leaning Supreme Court for decades and there has been no reversal in any legal choices for women. If you survived the farthest to the right President, such as Bush, I have no doubt you can survive Mitt Romney who has only proven in deeds to be a fair and considerate human being. Frankly, I am horribly offended by your lack of respect for the true achievement my generation and ones before mine allowing you to be an independent individual with the right to choose your own destiny. To see all that hard work and sacrifice be squandered by the agenda of one incompetent political figure and his ability to brainwash you is very sad indeed. My dear, you are selling your soul to be at the mercy of a man after all!

Coal Miners to Obama: Stop the lies!

Thanks to the women at SWARM: Women for Truth (Smart Women Against Rampant Media), we have posted this open letter from the coal miners in Ohio where they publicly call out Obama and his campaign for their lies! I want these are guys on my side. An impressive sight. Obama has provoked the wrong guys.

The massive crowds in Ohio are reflective of America’s want for change in Washington. Tens of thousands are gathering in support of Governor Romney, which contravenes the skewed media polls. These are the polls that matter. November isn’t coming soon enough for many in America.

VP Debate: Our Challenges are Not Laughing Matters, Joe.

photo credit unknown

Americans face a very stark contrast in our choice for the future. Thankfully, we have competent and responsible leadership in Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, for it is surely lacking in Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Tonight’s VP Debate as a follow on to last week’s Presidential Debate clearly supports the point; Paul Ryan is earnest, intelligent, knowledgeable, competent and respectful. Unfortunately, Joe Biden is not. Never before in modern history have we seen such disrespectful, irresponsible, and immature behavior in a Vice Presidential Debate. The problems we face today are not laughing matters!

Compelling Reasons for Romney! Guest Author: Terry Ryan

Rob and Terry Ryan are dear friends and rank among America’s pre-eminent entrepreneurs, having successfully built many billion dollar companies. During a recent visit with the Ryan’s, Terry mentioned her recent presentation about Mitt Romney to the Pachyderm Club of Missoula, Montana. At my request Terry shared her message and with her permission we print it here. As an attorney, Terry provides a compelling and succinct argument in Mitt’s favor.

Hello, I am Terry Ryan and I am the Women for Romney Chair for Montana.

My husband and I have lived the American Dream.

Rob was born in Fort Apache in the Bronx. You’ve seen the movie… it is the worst slum in America.

We met when we were freshmen at Cornell University and married after graduation. I supported Rob through graduate school. However, when Rob was a graduate student, he had to work full time at the same time to pay off his undergraduate loans. You see immediate repayment was mandatory back then.

We learned from that experience and saved my law school tuition in advance. After my graduation we moved from Boston to Silicon Valley where Rob won a major award his very first year at Intel Corp. for authoring the IEEE specification for Ethernet.

Because of the award, he was recruited as ‘Vice President of Engineering’ by a start up, then, fired less than a year later. It was 1981. The Country was still suffering the Carter Malaise. Unable to find work, he was forced to start his first company. It was a miserable failure, but he did manage to sell it… after a year without any income. Seven years later the two of us founded Ascend Communications. That was a grand slam homerun.

Kliener Perkins Venture Capital funded us in 1990. In 1994 we took the company public with a 64% profit margin. In 1995 Business Week named us the most profitable stock of the year. We had a 921% gain. In 1996 we were added to the Standard and Poor’s 500 index. We had over 5,000 employees in 1999 when Lucent acquired Ascend for a record breaking amount.

You see, we had invented and manufactured nearly 90% of the hardware used for an infant industry called: The Internet. YES WE BUILT IT!

But times are different now. Americans are worried. Mitt Romney has talked to thousands of Americans all over the country – in company cafeterias, school gymnasiums, and factory floors. They are worried about their children, their jobs, their mortgages and their future. They are right to be worried.

All across our great land people are hurting. Some have lost jobs. Others are working two jobs to get by. Many have fallen out of the middle class and are struggling to get back. While the cost of living goes up and up, they are living paycheck to paycheck.

They are tired of being scared. While our government tells us unemployment has been above 8% for 43 straight months it’s actually worse than that! A full 16% of our workforce does not have work. If you were self employed like realtors and independent contractors, and you don’t have work, you are not counted. If your unemployment ran out or you just gave up looking, you are no longer counted. If you are young and looking for your first job, you don’t count. Half of our new college graduates cannot find decent jobs.

One in six Americans are below the poverty line today. More than when President Johnson declared the War on Poverty. We need to reconstruct our safety nets so they bounce people out of poverty, rather than trap them inside it.

In the past three and half years America has amassed an additional FIVE trillion dollars of debt, more than all other presidential administrations combined. After four years it’s clear President Obama’s policies are making things worse.

The current President is driving Americans apart, creating class warfare, demonizing success. It does not need to be this way! As Condoleezza Rice says: “America has never been a narrative of agrievement against others. It has always been one of empowerment and opportunity. Never have we said… I’m doing poorly because you are doing well.” If the Presidency can be won that way, we all lose.

This election is about restoring the promise of America. It is a stark choice between two visions for our country’s future. We don’t need more excuses. We don’t need more blame. What we need is a new President.

Romney and Ryan have a positive agenda that will lead to economic growth. It will bring widespread and shared prosperity. Their plan for a stronger middle class will get America back to work, balance the budget and put America’s finances on a sustainable path. They are offering solutions that are bold, yet specific. They are committed to helping create the 12 million new jobs America needs.

The Romney/Ryan plan to get America working again focuses on these five things:

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, Aug. 21, 2012 (Justin Sullivan/ Getty Images )

First: Energy independence. We can achieve North American Energy Independence by 2020 if we take advantage of our domestic oil, our natural gas, our coal, our renewables and our nuclear power. Abundant, inexpensive domestic energy will not only create energy jobs, it will bring manufacturing jobs back to America.

Second: We must give our workers and our kids the skills they need to succeed. Our nation is failing in public education. For too long we have let the agenda of union bosses steer the agenda of our schools. It is time to put the students’ needs first. . . . Sandy Welch, who is running for Montana Superintendent of Schools told me about a conversation she had with a group of school administrators. She was advocating putting the students’ needs in the center of all other considerations. They looked at her dumbfounded! Finally one of them stammered, “we have never heard such a thing from any elected officials. It has always been all about Union’s rights! . . . It ‘s time for that to end!

America: Obama’s Reality vs Romney’s Reality


With sufficient frustrations born of the media’s failing of America by not disseminating truth and facts, and with bewilderment over the media’s blindness to truth and substance, I have compared below the realities of America under Obama and Romney. To be fair, Mitt Romney hasn’t led America, yet, but his history and record is clearly indicative of what we might see under a Romney Presidency. Further and notwithstanding my bias towards Mitt Romney, I have tried to be dispassionate in this comparative.

Romney’s America seems to be more robust and more hopeful, in fact, more Free.

What the Media Doesn’t Want You to Know: Obama’s Follies


Below is an historical perspective that the media will diminish and distort, or not even disclose or discuss with America as they strive to protect and promote Barack Obama. Why? Whether in ideological alignment with Obama or striving for relevance and power in our society, the media is wont to attack or undermine Mitt Romney and the conservative movement, at any price without boundary, integrity or principle. What Obama and the media fail to realize in their blindness and pandering for relevance and power, is that they only become relevant and important unto themselves. By and through their misguided actions to become relevant, they become irrelevant. Never before in our history has the media, or our President for that matter, been so irresponsible and caught up in their own self-importance; never before have they been so blatant in their wants and posturing to America’s discredit; never before have they revealed who they really are and abandoned all ethical boundaries; never before have they exposed themselves with reckless and irresponsible abandon. The battle lines have been drawn and the media has joined the opposition. Their insidious lack of integrity and public profile is undermining the very fabric of our society, and all in the name of their principal advocate, Barack Obama. The same could be said for the liberal thinkers in our center-right society. The liberal thinkers and the media have aligned with one another and through their protestations convinced themselves that they are a reflection of American society; again, at the behest of their leading advocate, Barack Obama. They are not a reflection of the majority of American’s, yet – and hopefully they never will! Surely, they and Obama represent some in America, but clearly, truth and ideology be told, it is the minority. By and through their public pulpit each are convinced if they shout loud enough we will be equally convinced. What is tragic is the blatant lies and manipulations in play; with stories suppressed, polls manipulated, and lies promulgated – the media and Obama are trying to sell what is good as bad and what is bad as good. This deception has to stop! History has proven when the majority in society remain silent to the protestations of the extremes, lives and freedoms are lost – Not here, and not in America!

Intentional as the media may be to try and diminish and suppress conservative voter turnout by skewed and distorted polls, deceitful attacks on conservative values and Mitt Romney, or collusion to suppress information and deviate from substance – they will not succeed. I believe the efforts of deception will diminish Democratic turnout and elevate the Conservative turnout!

Noted in the recent post by Vic Lundquist, voices are being raised in opposition and standing on principles, gratefully!

The historical aggregation of some of Obama’s follies without sufficient media disclosure and publication is distressing for many reasons, not the least of which are the lives and freedoms lost.

1) Barack Obama’s failure to act on advance intel to protect our Libyan Ambassador and his colleagues; and his subsequent cover up of known intelligence reports conjunctive with his recent dismissiveness and failure to address and acknowledge terrorism on US territory in Libya and 20 embassies around the world.

2) Lives were lost because of Obama’s failed leadership and inattentions in the Middle East. Today our military is under severe threat because of the undermining attitudes and policies of Barack Obama. Each day we are losing men and women because of political posturing by Obama in Afghanistan – our enemy has infiltrated our ‘allies’ and are killing our soldiers, and nothing is said or done to stop it.

3) Barack Obama’s compromising leaks of national security matters to bolster his foreign policy bona fides, and put our nation at further risk.

4) Barack Obama’s foreign policy priorities to appease and accommodate our enemies; his foreign policy priorities to advocate the LGBT agenda as a condition of American aid, ‘cultural imperialism.’

5) Obama’s abandonment of world leadership; abandonment of Israel; accommodation to a soon-to-be nuclear Iran; accommodation to an Arab Winter and radical Islamic leadership that has put in play a conflagration in the Middle East.

6) Barack Obama’s willful taxes on the poor and middle class when he stated the contrary. (a) Obama stated he wouldn’t raise a dollar of tax on the middle class; and yet, he clearly stated he would wage a war on energy and bankrupt certain industries, including the coal industry. Consequentially, we have seen gasoline prices and home fuel costs more than double in 3 years. American’s are paying at least $1,200-$4,000 more per year in fuel costs because of Obama’s stated policies which is an egregious tax on all. (b) Obama’s debt agenda has imposed a principal borrowing of nearly $6 trillion, plus interest, on all Americans! His spending is one of the most significant taxes he can impose on this and future generations. What isn’t discussed is the cost of interest on this debt when interest rates go up, and they will go up. (c) Obamacare will further impose a minimum tax on all American’s of at least $4,000 per year and in the years to come, and so much more. Additionally, under Obamacare our seniors have to pay an added Obamacare tax on the sale of their homes.
