For the last 8 years, people have been railing on President George W. Bush about how "stupid" he is and how he doesn't come across as if he knows what he is talking about. Now, I have defended President Bush in other places. He is honestly one of the more impressive men I have ever met. But, that is not my point today.
If we have spend the last 8 years whining about a President who doesn't seem to know what he is talking about... shouldn't we be looking for a President who DOES know what he is talking about?
Mitt Romney, this week, spoke at the Club for Growth--a Political Action Committee that promotes growth-friendly policies. Romney not only came to speak, but he brought a full PowerPoint presentation--including Graphs, numbers and outlines of his ideas.
The Romney Campaign posted three videos from this speech. If you want to see a Presidential Candidate who knows how to communicate and who really knows what he is talking about, watch these three videos:
Reigning in Federal Spending:
On Fighting for Lower Taxes (and winning):
I love the story he tells in that last video. It is fun to watch elected officials get reminded who is really in charge.
Yes, I may seem like a Romney fanatic... but the more I watch him and compare him to the other candidates, the more I want this man to be the next President of the United States.
Let's compare his discussion of economic growth with this:
Wait... listen to that again: Ms. Clinton is advocating the SEIZURE of private corporate profits to pursue a government mandate. Wow... viva socialismo.
Will someone tell her what creates jobs? PLEASE?!? Yes, Ms. Clinton, PROFITS create JOBS. Profits yield investment and profits increase the velocity of money. If you seize profits, you are socializing industries. And, hundreds of years of history show that is a stupid idea.
In the words of Ronald Reagan: "It isn't that Liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so much that isn't so."
Ladies and Gentlemen, I want a President who knows what he (or she) is talking about. Because, that is a President who will lead us to the future.
That is all.
