Excuse Me For A Moment

We normally don’t get into politics here, but something last night really irked me.  If you don’t want to read this, just ignore it. 

Full disclosure:  I am going to vote for Mitt Romney in November.  I voted for John McCain in 2008. 

I have watched a good bit of the GOP Convention.  Something that many of the speakers allude that if Obama is re-elected, America cannot survive another 4 years of  this administration.

Now, do I think Preisdent Obama should be in office for another term?  No.  Will I vote against him in November?  Yes.

But let’s have a little perspective here.  Our great nation survived a Civil War, within 3o years surived two World Wars and a Great Depression, and an awful terrorist attack that killed thousands.  I could go on.

The United States is not going to crumble beyond any repair just becuase the Executive Branch is weak for another 4 years.  That is absurd!

Stick the to his (lack of) record and the facts; don’t restort to scare tactics that are menat to sway the weak minded.

    I would just point out that the issue isn’t a weak executive branch that people are rightly concerned about. It is an executive branch that is acting on more authority than is enumerated to it in our founding document and laws of the land. This executive branch is anything but weak sans the two areas that it counts; character and leadership.

    In general, while my comments/views on politics differ greatly from the state of Georgia as a whole – we as a society need to look beyond simply voting along partisan lines. These views have caused our nation more underlying trouble, whereby people have been reluctant to acknowledge correctness on the part of their political opposition.

    Furthermore, Ryan may want to take a step back and reassess his comments during last night’s ‘rousing’ speech. In one word – deceitful. Lot’s of hot air/bs, but literally no substance (Obama comes to mind in 08). You know it’s bad when Fox News immediately starts to call out and fact check the GOP.

    At any rate, come 2012 – I don’t think either candidate (Obama or Romney) is a legitimate answer to our nation’s woes.

    We may have survived the civil war but if we get another four years of Obama we may end up with another civil war on our hands. Maybe not uniformed “South versus North” style, but riots like you’re seeing in Greece seem likely.

      No, that’s absurd, too. He’s a horrid president, yes, but our country isn’t going to implode because of his policies. And on paper, he’s not the worst president we’ve ever had. He’s just a bad democrat president during the Fox News era.
