Mitt Romney has been quoted to have said, “It’s my turn.” Ann Romney has been quoted to have said, “I believe it’s Mitt’s time. It’s our turn now.” Their statements were in regard to the presidency of the United States.

The Romneys are used to getting their own way. It’s our time, as American voters, to answer the Romneys: Regardless of how much money you and Citizens United have, you will not be able to just buy the presidency. We can do this by voting against the Romneys’ purchase of the presidency.

If they get their turn, Americans will not have a turn by turning the recession around. The ditch that George W. Bush drove us into will be a valley of no return. Study all the issues. Vote smart. Turn off Fox News. They’re not newsmen; they’re only right-wing pundits. Read the newspapers and watch the real news with trusted, genuine news reporters with real credentials.
