I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait until this election is over. I’m so tired of the phone calls, the ads on TV and all the flapping about who is the best person to be President. As you may know, I am a conservative and have been disenchanted by the current Administration – Obama and his buddies to be specific. What a tragedy he has heaped on our country. We are more divided now, our economy is tanking and there is no feeling of unity as Americans. Whose fault is it? Obama.

I heard Obama say the other day, “Who do you trust?” Well Mr. President, you lied about Benghazi where an Ambassador and three Americans died. You lied about Obamacare, my health care cost is just like Mitt Romney said, up over $2,000 a year. Your all of the above energy programs is spot on what Mitt Romney said; the all above is above ground and nothing below ground – that was a good zinger! And when Obama says, vote for revenge – OMG – what is this guy all about?

I have voted already. I have voted for love of country and put a leader in the White House. I voted for Mitt Romney. Now all of you progressive wackos can take a shot at me. I don’t care. I love this country and it hurts when the current Administration has dragged our country in the mud.

One more day and we will truly take back our country from this most corrupt Administration that I have ever seen in my lifetime.

During a post-Florida interview on CNN, Romney attempted to explain his focus as president would be to restore economic prosperity for America’s battered middle class but he also said that he wasn’t concerned about the very poor.

Now if you stop there, you would say, WHAT!

But you need to hear the rest of his comment. He said that the most indigent among us already have a generous safety net on which to fall back (welfare, SCHIP, Medicaid, etc), and that very well-off citizens are doing just fine on their own.

But what you will hear from the mainstream media as well as Democrats is that Mitt Romney doesn’t care about the poor!  Democrats’ entire strategy against Romney, if he’s the nominee, is to beat the class warfare drum loudly and relentlessly to try to drown out President Obama’s demonstrable failures.  There’s nothing that Team Romney can do to prevent Democrats from employing this cynical strategy, but their candidate should consciously avoid making his opponents’ job any easier.

It’s too bad that our politicians can’t say what they feel and probably what the average American feels without being excoriated by the media and the Democrat machine. I totally understood what he was saying because he is right. There is enough help for the very poor; unfortunately it is the taxpayers who are taking care of them. The middle class has the real problem – they make too much money for government help and not enough money to be able to pay for high prices, i.e. gas, health care, groceries, etc. I guess that’s why they call it middle class because you are caught in the middle and can’t get help or make enough money to pay for essentials.

As far as I am concerned this was no gaffe but much ado about nothing. But hold on – there will be more Democrat misquotes to come in the near future.

I’ve been watching the GOP debates for several weeks, reading all the gossip about how Romney and Gingrich are dinging each other with stinging ads as well as Ron Paul putting out his stinging ads about both of them. Also saw that Rick Santorium’s daughter was ill and hospitalized for a couple of days, hope she is better the poor little girl.  So I thought I would sort this entire thing out because this GOP primary race will make your head spin!

First of all, Ron Paul, who is really favored by the younger people, has a problem with foreign policy. He claims that he isn’t an isolationist but an interventionist. Yah, whatever. You call it tomato I call it tomatoe! It’s the same thing but only different, right? I know he is staying in the race just to push his policies during the GOP convention to see if he can get some of his ideas on the platform. But then, most nominees would probably not follow the platform closely.

Then there is Rick Santorium. Nice man but he is too much of a Washington insider. That’s right I said that. He’s been in Congress and has some baggage that makes him an insider. He claims he’s a conservative and I believe him. But does the country really need a real conservative or do we need a moderate to be able to work with the Senate and House?

The one person I really don’t trust is Newt Gingrich. Sure he has big ideas, i.e. a base on the moon, but some of his ideas will cost taxpayers’ money. He claims that the GOP needs a conservative with “big ideas.” Sure, but, what we need is a nominee who has ideas on helping the economy, jobs, housing and reining in spending. Newt is also a cry baby. I am so tired of hearing him say that the ads in Florida are unfair and not true. Buck up Newt! Running for President isn’t easy especially when you have all the Democrats waiting to sling mud at you if you are the GOP nominee.

Then there is Mitt Romney – Mr. GQ! I really like him and feel that his ideas will work for this country. Yes, he’s very rich but you know people who know how to make money can really be a great help to this country. Most of these people are penny-pinchers and I would love to have a penny-pincher in the White House than a big spender with big ideas. Also he was governor of Massachusetts – a very liberal state – where he was able to work across the aisle and keep the state running. Sure he has RomneyCare under his belt but I believe that what he started in his state was good for his state and should stay in his state. And that’s what he says.

So despite who endorses the other candidates, like Herman Caine and Sarah Palin endorsing Newt Gingrich and Michelle Malkin endorsing Rick Santorium, I am endorsing Mitt Romney.  And you know that doesn’t mean a hill of beans to voters in Florida. They will be voting who they believe is the best GOP nominee to beat Obama and turn this country around.
