…just trust me. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
“Florida, you know me,” Obama said. “You can trust that I say what I mean and I mean what I say. And yes, we’ve been through tough times. But you’ve never seen me quit.”
To which, I reply:
- Yes, we know you – that’s why we are voting for Romney.
- We know that you are prone to “over suggesting” and all your promises come with expiration dates.
- We are still in “tough” times – largely because of your policies.
- You haven’t “quit” per se, but you have spent a lot of the time on the golf course and almost all of the last two years on the fundraising and campaign trail.
Obama’s campaign was printing 3.5 million copies of his plan to improve education, boost manufacturing jobs, enhance U.S.-made energy, reduce the federal deficit and raise taxes on the wealthy.
A little late in the day for a “plan” isn’t it there, champ?
And it really isn’t very new. The new plan is the same as the old plan. Take energy for example:
The way forward:
Expanding underground and clean energy production and cutting foreign oil imports in half by 2020. President Obama is pursuing an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy that will produce reliable, affordable energy and take steps to protect our climate:
- Opening up millions of acres for exploration and development, including undiscovered oil and gas resources in the Gulf of Mexico and the Arctic.
- Investing in domestic energy sources including wind, solar, clean coal, nuclear, and biofuels. All while increasing our energy efficiency.
- Doubling fuel economy of cars and light trucks to 54.5 mpg by 2025, which will reduce oil consumption by 2.2 million barrels a day and save consumers more than $8,000 at the pump.
- Calling on Congress to build on our success in positioning America to be the world’s leading manufacturer in high-tech batteries. President Obama is calling for extending tax credits that support clean energy manufacturing.
- Setting a standard for utility companies so that 80% of the nation’s electricity comes from clean sources by 2035. This will help create a market for American manufacturers to make the clean energy technology we need, while improving access to cheaper, more secure energy for U.S. manufacturers.
To which I reply:
- Hah. Heard that one before. Might happen if the Republicans take the Senate under President Romney.
- More spending.
- Higher car prices and more subsidies for electric cars that no one will buy.
- More Solyndras and A123 battery company bankruptcies.
- More costly regulation.
Oh, yeah. Tax the rich. That’s going to work.
