Well, the conventions are over. Now it’s up to the voters.
The GOP delegates were white, upper class, right wing Republicans.
The Democratic delegates were mostly liberal blacks, Hispanics, other minorities and anglos.
The Romney platform: Get rid of Obama. Abolish Obamacare. Reduce government entitlement programs, i. e., social security, welfare, the poor and elderly programs, student loans, health care, etc. Oppose government bailouts and regulations for auto makers and Wall Street bankers. Romney claims he will create 12 million new jobs! He didn’t say how. No mention of the wars. Shades of G.W. Bush!
Obama: Says there’s much to be done considering the financial deficit mess he inherited from Bush, i.e., reduce unemployment, improve education, assist undocumented immigrants (oxymoron), improve health care for the poor and seniors, reduce taxes for middle class, and increase taxes for the super rich.
Summary: Is the economy better off under Obama? Compared to Bush 1, the worst president ever, it is. Obama, the super liberal, however, compounded the problem by increasing the deficit exponentially like a drunken sheepherder from which we will never recover! So it’s a lose-lose situation for all Americans whichever party wins in November!
