Mitt Romney — He won’t need on-the-job-training to ignite economy

This newspaper endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Oct. 21. And the events since then have only reinforced the reasons for our having done so originally.

Topping the list was Friday’s dismal news about the economy, which shows it at a virtual standstill with unemployment going back up to 7.9 percent — exactly where it was when Barack Obama took office in January 2009. He and his supporters like to talk about what a great job they’ve done putting people back to work. Yet if he had campaigned four years ago on the slogan “Vote for Me and I Promise to Have the Unemployment Rate Exactly Where It Is Today Four Years from Now,” he would have been laughed out of town.

Meanwhile, Obama’s credibility was further eroded by the revelations and continuing deceptions about the mishandling of the Benghazi attacks that killed the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, including two former Navy SEALS.

Team Obama, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, were quick to describe the incident as a “spontaneous” attack prompted by an obscure YouTube video no one had ever heard of. And they stuck to that preposterous story for more than a month until it inexorably began to unravel, thanks to the tenacity of CBS and Fox News.

There now are highly credible allegations that key administration figures were aware of the attacks on the consulate as they were happening — yet failed to summon help for the embattled Americans, even though there was a Joint Special Operations Command team nearby. No air cover was sent, not even an armed drone, during the seven-hour battle. That’s not a profile in courage. In fact, it doesn’t even qualify as “leading from behind,” which is Obama’s preference. Now four brave Americans are dead.

What was Obama’s response? Why, he jetted to party with fat-cat fundraisers in Las Vegas.

Too bad he couldn’t have shown as much concern for our dead ambassador and the others that he did for those without power in the Northeast following last week’s storm. That storm was a godsend for Obama, a perfect way to distract the public from his ineptitude and a final chance to look “presidential.”

You can be sure Mitt Romney will never have any trouble “looking” presidential. And unlike the present occupant of the Oval Office, he won’t have any trouble acting like one either.

If the country were once again perched on the verge of a major war, it would make no sense to elect a president with a pacifistic background. And with the economy continuing to be the overriding issue in this election, it makes no sense to re-elect a president who has shown utter ineptitude on economic matters. Rather, the logical approach would be to elect a president who has shown time after time after time that he understands what makes the economy tick and won’t need on-the-job training.

That man, needless to say, is Mitt Romney.

It is only so obvious you would have endorsed Flip Flopper Mitt, who has changed his position on numerous occasions throughout his entire campaign. You know what is really sad about this entire election? People know Romney is a rotten soul and really doesn't give a crap about the poor or middle class after all Romney did say in his own words "I don't care about those 47% of Americans" but its to defeat Obama. To make sure he is a one term president. Sounds like one of those good ole boys McConnell!

Could we expected anything else differently from your endorsement? After all, this is backwoods

Canton, Ga. where hatred and racism is boiling over.

Yes, and Mitt will get us GOOD jobs, not just jobs like being an waitress or stuff like that. Real, high paying jobs. He loves to hire people, loves to hire people (loves to fire them when they need to be, too). But, loves, I repeat loves to hire people (and with good pay, to boot!).

Yes, and even his dog, Seamus, would vote for him (if he were not a dog). Even with all the rumors of what he did to him, he would vote for Romney! Even the dog can see that what you all are saying is so true!

Yes, Obama is a weird name, and Mitt rhymes with hit (as in "he will be a hit as president!").

ha- you guys are funny, a laugh a minute! Sorry, I will not vote for a Mormon, ever. Even if he were not a Mormon, he lies all the time. He also invested in several businesses that went under.
