Brush away all the rhetoric, all the vitriol, all the divisiveness from the presidential campaign. To most Americans, only one thing matters — the economy.
Four years into Barack Obama’s presidency, economic growth is sputtering. Family incomes are down. Poverty is up. Business owners are reluctant to assume risk in the face of unending uncertainty. Many are holding on by their fingernails, desperate for signs of an economic recovery that will help them provide for themselves, their employees, their customers and their communities.
When President Obama came into office in 2009, the economy was in freefall and though untested, he inspired us with his promise of hope and change. Now, four years later, we have little reason to believe he can turn things around.
So while we endorsed Obama in 2008, we recommend voters choose Republican Mitt Romney on Nov. 6.
Yes, the jobless numbers from September showed a drop to 7.8 percent unemployed, the first time in almost four years that it’s been below 8 percent. But the numbers are deceiving because more than 4 million Americans have given up looking for work since January 2009.

We all know (except if you are a liberal) that the 7.8% is not fully accurate and is going to creep up after the election. GNP trended downward in the second qtr around 1.2% or 3% and will do so this qtr. I ma guessing we will be lucky to see a growth any higher than 1.5% at best once the real numbers come in. We are barely better off now than last year. Its the worst recovery in out history! And some of you want 4 more years of this or worse. And it will get worse.
