Bill Clinton won the 1992 election with “it’s the economy, stupid!” It still is.
The best your Obama recommendation editorial can say about the Obama economy is that he deserves credit for starting to turn it around after four years. Whether that is factual is questionable. Regardless, is there anyone in South Florida who does not have a family member or friend who continues to look but is unemployed for a longer period than ever before in his or her life?
Your editorial never once mentions growth of the economy. The GDP growth rate continues to decline. Raising taxes is not going to make the economy grow. Private sector growth, from the mom ‘n pop to Apple Computer, will make the economy grow, which will require new jobs which will create payroll and income taxes.
Right now we have fewer jobs, more welfare, less economic growth, more deficit. Obama certainly is not running on his economic achievements. There is no track record indicating that he can turn this around. Romney is more focused on and qualified to grow the economy, which among many, many other things, will give my unemployed family members and friends the opportunity to go back to work and be able to support themselves and their families. That is why I am voting for Romney.
