Oh yes, we are exceptional!
No matter what Obama tells you, we are the greatest nation on this planet. Look at us, 300 million plus, who don’t agree on everything and, sometimes nothing, but we do agree on one huge thing. While we wrangle and disagree, frequently vehemently on politics, we are the only nation that has never seen a military coup nor have we ever seen a President try to stay in office when it was time for them to leave, whether by losing an election or by serving in office for maximum allowable time. From the time of Washington to the present day every single transition from one President to another has been a mostly peaceful affair. That is huge!
America, you are exceptional, you are beautiful and don’t ever forget it.

Obama is falling apart and so is his campaign. It’s one thing to caricature your opponent when he can’t fight back and be heard above the sycophantic press but, a whole different message has come out since the debate. Americans now are beginning to see the Mitt Romney who has the qualities to be President of the US. The New York Daily News sums this up quite nicely.
Once Romney came across as knowledgeable, clear and deeply concerned about the state of the country, the entire vilification campaign of summer and early fall looked shaky and less convincing……snip
Only Romney himself could look the voters in the eye and demonstrate that he had the knowledge, the composure, the deftness and the concern they wanted to see. Romney’s message was simple but resonant — if we can get more Americans in jobs, we’ll see dramatic improvement in our budgetary, debt and social conditions.
When all Americans are doing well, as we have in the past, our country is better fit to care for those who need help. We don’t need to appease those who disagree with our guiding principles by shredding our Constitution to benefit their barbaric cult-like religion or even those in this country who keep telling us to “shut up and sit down”.
While Obama has increased foreign aid on his watch by 80%, our own veterans are being shortchanged. We borrow billions just to send it to corrupt governments and tyrants and our own military suffers. The backlog of claims for benefits is staggering and has jumped during the Obama administration. Add that to the list of grievances we have against this administration. The backlog has jumped to 179% during Obama’s term of office. Not a number he should be proud of, to say the least. From CNS News with VA statistics at the link.
The backlog of claims is at near-record highs, with 65.8 percent of claims being backlogged for 125 days or more.
The total claims include disability claims by veterans as well as from surviving spouses, children, or parents. As the VA explains, these claims are “based upon the effects of disabilities, diseases, or injuries incurred or aggravated during military service.” And the claims by spouses, children, or parents are based “upon the Veteran’s death due to service-related causes.”
Obama wants you to believe we are not exceptional but, it is he and his cohorts who are not. They are a drag on this country and have fettered business expansion, established permanent bailouts for “too big to fail” banks written in the Dodd-Frank Bill and, shut down the ability to use our own resources for the benefit of the American people. The result is higher gas prices, higher home heating costs, higher electric costs. How does this benefit the poor or middle class that Obama claims to have so much empathy for? From American Thinker;
An increase in gas prices from $1.78 a gallon–when Bush left office– to $3.80/gal–todays price–is equivalent to a flat tax of 4.6% on a family making $23,000. That means that that poor family, based on typical gas usage by lower income families, will have to use nearly 5% of every dollar they make in a year to cover the increase in the cost of gas under President Obama.
Our choice is clear, we can vote for a confident successful man who has turned around many failing companies including the Olympic Games or, stick with a feckless man who has depressed this country psychologically and economically for the past four years. One and done….Romney/Ryan 2012.
