ELECTION: Obama’s better for working people

As a progressive, I am disappointed with the news over the last few months. I just heard that the Des Moines Register has endorsed Mitt Romney.

I would think most thinking Americans would realize the steady hand with which President Obama has been running the country. Jobs have increased, slowly but steadily, over the last 40 months. He has had some amazing accomplishments over the years in supporting and signing the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the Affordable Care Act, and others.

He has definitely been on the side of the working man, even though I disagree with his stance on education. He is not at the throat of unions, as are Republicans, and he is for better wages in general. Yet, I hear about a surge of support for Romney.

As of this writing, he still has not explained his own taxes to the American people. We don’t have a clue as to how he would really handle foreign policy, except that his advisers are mostly from the Bush era (Oh, yeah, that’s clue!). But worst of all, he has yet to explain his details about how he’d handle the economy.

He claimed, at the last debate, that the numbers do add up, and, after all, he’s a CEO and he knows to how balance a budget. However, the numbers do not add up, and we are being hornswaggled by his bluster!
