More than at any time that I can recall, the American economy is suffering from a crisis of confidence in our leadership. Although much of the blame may not rightfully be attributed to failures of the Obama administration, poll after poll has revealed that the great majority of the people feel that our country is headed in the wrong direction.

Mitt Romney might not have the solution to the problem, but it is clear that President Obama doesn’t, and we don’t need four more years of “I Hope It Will Change” leadership.

America should give Romney a chance to right the economic ship; if he can’t, we can send him packing after four years and let someone else try. But it is clearly time for a change.
