At the presidential debate tonight in Denver, Mitt Romney is a strong challenger to President Barack Obama. Romney’s post on facebook at about 8:30 a.m. today garnered hundreds of “likes” in just a few minutes. What he says rings true to lots of people.

Romney said, “Under President Obama, 196,688 new people are on food stamps in Colorado. We shouldn’t measure compassion by how many people are on welfare or receiving food stamps. We should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off and get a good paying job.”

If Obama uses the same old, same old recycled rhetoric tonight, Americans should see it for what it is. It’s a broken record. Continue reading

Why Muriel Taylor will vote for Mitt Romney

Muriel Taylor has deep reasons for voting for Mitt Romney for president. Taylor was in a group of women supporting Romney when I asked them for reasons for their support. Taylor wrote down her reasons, which resonated strongly with me.

Taylor said, “I am voting for Mitt Romney because I love my country. I believe the freedom that I cherish is being eroded by the ever encroaching arm of the federal government. It has become a giant octopus with tentacles that search for every way possible to feed itself off the labors of the people and to crush the life out of them by all its rules and regulations.”

This rang true with President Barack Obama’s whacks at religious freedom and increasing regulations on small businesses. These have got to stop.

Taylor continued by saying, “The staggering national debt is just one of the many things that is wrong with the present administration. Our country is in serious danger if we do not make a change in the upcoming election. I am amazed at the class warfare that is going on because Romney is a successful businessman. I can’t ever remember success being an issue. I was under the assumption that is what we want in a leader. He is someone who has had the experience and has proven himself quite able in fiscal responsibility, which he did when he was governor of Massachusetts.” Continue reading

Obama hits women hard economically

President Barack Obama’s failed economic policies and strategies have hit women hard, according to numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“The Obama Administration has brought hard times to American women. Under President Obama, more women have struggled to find work than at any other time in recorded history,” Mitt Romney says on his website, mittromney.com.

Romney says “Current Employment Statistics” he accessed on April 6 show “Women account for 92.3 percent of the jobs lost under Obama.”

Additionally, Romney says, “What president has the worst record on female labor force participation? Barack Obama. Turning the clock back 20 years on American women.” Romney backs up his observation with the BLS “Current Population Survey” that “Under Obama, the number of unemployed women has increased by 858,000.”

Economic issues are the basis for everything. Women struggle as they look for work to provide for themselves and their families. They struggle as they watch family members suffer with unemployment. Moreover, if they are stay-at-home moms, they manage household economic losses that do not include pursuits of employment.
