There’s been tons of words thrown at the subject of who should be president. I’ll admit that I’ve thrown a ton of those words at the subject myself. We’ve had 40+ months of watching President Obama take a tough situation and make it worse.

Longterm unemployment is terrible. According to the last jobs report, four times as many people quit looking for work as jobs were created. Median household income has dropped $2,141 since the end of the Bush Recession. That’s because the jobs being created by Obamanomics are hospitality industry or other service industries.

UPDATE: According to this article, median household incomes dropped another 1.1% in August:

In another sign that the economic recovery under President Obama is not producing gains for average Americans, median household incomes fell 1.1% in August to $50,678, according to a report released Tuesday by Sentier Research.

Since the economic recovery started in June 2009, household incomes are down 5.7%, the Sentier data show, and they are down more than 8% since Obama took office.

Gas prices have skyrocketed, going from $1.84 a gallon to $3.85 a gallon today. That’s why groceries are vastly more expensive than when President Obama took office.

This administration’s EPA is implementing anti-mining regulations at a frantic pace in their attempt to kill mining industry jobs and shut down coal-fired power plants.

We’re now starting QE3, which is the Fed’s way of artificially propping up a terrible economy. How many more rounds of quantitative easing will be needed if we don’t change course? Three? Four? Five?

President Obama has essentially told us that his policies are working and that there’s no need to change, which means the economy we have now won’t improve. In fact, when the Bush tax rates end, the economy will likely crash into another major recession.

That’s what we should expect if voters pick the ‘Obama option’. If high unemployment, sinking wages and insolvency sounds inviting, you’re a massochist or a progressive.

If you aspire to a better future, filled with shrinking unemployment, cheaper gas prices, more manufacturing and construction jobs and fewer intrusive regulations, then Mitt Romney is your only option this October and November.

Triggering a robust domestic energy program will lead to cheaper gas prices and energy construction jobs. It will trigger the next round of manufacturing gains, too. That’s the path Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will put us on.

That’s the type of America I want to live in.

    Wars on the credit cards, I want no more of that. Renewable energy, great, and it needs to be pushed harder. Saying all I want is a lower pump price is a bit narrow. And remember, GATT, the WTO, NAFTA, all that was bipartisan blessed. In my perfect world there would be viable third and fourth parties, over time, and the press not catering to the two party status quo.

    Eric Z….If you ever bothered to read the Constitution it does mention “provide for the national defense and promote the general welfare”. If you are even slightly familiar with the english language you know the difference between provide and promote. It would seem that medicare/medicaid shouldn’t be provided…only promoted. How about TANF and EBT cards or Sec8 housing. Yup…promoted, not provided. Perhaps you need to get PEW,Ford,Rockefeller,Gates, and the Buffet foundations to pay for this instead of the taxpayer. But heh, thats the ideas behind a constitutional republic….what do we have?

    Eric:

    Um Obama has pushed that hard for the last four year. China loves it with all of the business the solar spending created. The Volt turned out it doesn’t work and costs us $49.000 each.

    In the meantime oil fracking which Obama will like to stop has increased American oil production. The Xcel pipeline will reduce prices, but Obama and apparently you aren’t pushing it.

    Oh I forgot you only want to parrot Obama’s dreams which don’t work instead of a commonsense policies that work.
