In my role as a lay-consultant to the Romney campaign (unbeknownst to the Romney campaign), I suggest this response to President Obama’s laughable assertion that Mitt Romney would not have authorized the Seal Team to take out Bin Laden.
The president has speculated that a President Romney would not have authorized the strike on Osama Bin Laden. Since we are speculating, here is what we know will happen if President Obama is Re-Elected:
He will not authorize drilling for more American oil and natural gas on federal lands, and will, in fact, demagogue the issue using misleading statistics. On the other hand he will continue to pour billions of dollars into green energy boondoggles, mostly owned by his cronies.
He will not produce a plan to save Medicare and Social Security by altering the nature of those programs from the current Ponzi schemes that they are to something that is actually sustainable. He will, however, criticize any effort to make much needed alterations to those programs while never acknowledging that the combined costs to them will soon bankrupt the programs and the country.
He will not push Democrats in Congress to produce a budget. He hasn’t done this for three years, including during a time when they easily had the simple majority needed to pass a budget, why would he start now?
He will continue to speak about reducing regulations while the agencies in the executive branch of government that he controls continue to create new regulations at a blistering pace, piling more burden on businesses and increasing prices to consumers.
He will eschew responsibility, continuing to blame others for the ineffectiveness of his policies. And he will continue to use misleading statistics to try to fool the people into believing his administration has been more effective than it has been.
He will also continue to pretend that the European style socialism that he’d like to impose on America is working while the countries of the European Union suffer from stagnant economies, high unemployment, and national debt that threatens to take down many nations.
President Obama can speculate about whether or not a President Romney would have made the relatively easy call to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden when we had intelligence telling us where he would be. President Obama has to strain credulity to do so.
The speculation about his policies above are based on three and a half years of his performance in office. Do we want four more years of him?
