Same old, same old from Obama tonight?

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

Obama’s political trick with illegal immigrants

President Barack Obama is at it again. The incumbent is using his position in hopes of winning a second term. By executive decree, his administration will not deport illegal immigrants from the United States who fit his criteria but will grant work permits instead. In so doing, Obama excludes Congress from the discussion and puts aside current law.

Colorado State Senator Shawn Mitchell pointed out on his facebook page, “Granting work permits to individuals prohibited by U.S. statute from residing here, let alone working here, is not executive discretion. It is lawless policymaking by fiat. Congress and the high Court should reject it forcefully.”

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.

Obama’s signature healthcare style

On Sun., March 21, at about midnight, President Obama declared, “This is what change looks like” in reference to his campaign promise of “change we can believe in.” Obama, Pelosi and Reid finally had squeezed enough Democrats to get the 219-212 vote to pass the Senate version of Obamacare in the House.

Health care talks need disinfectant

Health care reform compromise talks between the House and Senate bill versions need a heavy dose of disinfectant or, in other words, plenty of sunshine.

During the campaign, candidate Barack Obama touted openness in government. He said, “I’ll make our government open and transparent so that anyone can insure that our business is the people’s business.” Obama continued by saying the late Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said, “Sunlight is the greatest disinfectant.” Continue reading
