Romney Asks, "Are You Better Off Now, Than Four Years Ago?"
Mitt Romney asked American voters an important question in his acceptance speech at the GOP convention:
"Are you better off now than you were four years ago when President Obama was elected?"
It's an important question. Voters should ask themselves that question and a few others.
Do the President's policies happen in a vacuum? If so, then why do we need a Congress?
What is Congress's job?
Can a hostile Congress undermine policies that would lead to job creation?
Why did Republicans meet the night President Obama was being inaugurated to plan his demise?
What was Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell's number one priority?
Did Republicans accept any responsibility for the poor economy, the financial crisis, the Iraq War (under false pretense) or the nation's deficit?
Where's the mushroom cloud...things like that.
Obama's cut Republicans a lot of slack by 'turning the page' on the DOJ investigations of CIA torture, the financial crisis and Iraq War. But voters won't.
Yes, American voters are asking themselves many questions, Governor Romney.
The most important question?
Where would we be today in job creation and with our economy had Republicans worked with President Obama rather than plot and plan his failure?
