HOPKINS: A few reasons I'm for Romney

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Some will argue that President Obama has been unable to get anything done in four years because many in the GOP publicly stated that they main goal was to make sure Obama doesn’t get re-elected. A fair point, until you remember back in 2010 Obama called on his supporters to “punish our enemies,” when referring to Republicans. Americans as enemies? Nice talk. Some in the Tea party pull this crap, too.

And Romney, I’m sure, won’t call Hugo Chavez a “friend.”

Still, Obama had two years working with both a Democrat-controlled House and Senate. He STILL couldn’t achieve anything, which is why in 2010 we saw the number of Democrats in the Senate drop from 58 to 51. In the House, it was far worse as the GOP took control, netting 63 additional seats, the largest gain in a House midterm election since 1938.

Mitt Romney knows how to turn around businesses. And we can use that in the United States right now. He’s right for the United States. Romney gets my personal endorsement.
