Vote for Obama


We have lot of voters who think things will get better if we get President Obama out of office.

The Republicans want to give us a man who they say will save us all. Stop and think about this man.

He was putting companies out of the U.S. for more than 20 years.

He set up bank accounts so he can hide his money so he won’t have to pay taxes on it. Now is that American?

While he was about his plan, his company Bain was busy shutting companies down.

Just a month ago there was a company in Freeport shut down by his company, all employees fired and the work shipped to China.

His running mate is against Social Security and Medicare. He has said this several times during the past two years. Now they both flip-flopped and are telling a different story.

Obama’s hands have been tied for the past two years. Congress has done nothing but sit and watch this country go down.

The Republicans say they have a plan, but they have lied before. You also have to remember Congress runs this country. The Republicans in Congress won’t do anything.

Ask yourself: “How much American is Mitt Romney?” Paul Ryan has a budget plan that will kill us all.

Remember how well Romney was like over in England while he was showing his $72,000 tax-deducted horse? Look at the cold shoulders he got from other countries. Now he says he is going to be good at foreign policy.

Talk all you want, I know how I’m going to vote: Obama.
