Once again, the Republican party has shown a gross disregard for facts. The recent Republican debate had Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney each making statements about themselves that were not true. Additionally, the debate brought to light the focus on self-wealth at the expense of the American public that each candidate has.
I mean, what kind of candidate for President states that his financial advisors make investments with NO direction from him? How does he expect to Lead the country when he can’t even direct his own financial investors. Perhaps Romney can answer this question for us before the election.
Romney made this comment during the debate; ” President Barack Obama’s $814 billion economic stimulus program “didn’t create private-sector jobs.” In fact, between 1.2 million and 3.7 million jobs were created in 2011 as a direct result of the stimulus program. Maybe Romney doesn’t provide direction to his fact checkers either.
And why are Republicans taking Gingrich seriously as a candidate after he was reprimanded and had ethics violation fines during his tenure as Speaker? Why would anyone want such a person to be President? You can’t trust him in Congress, don’t trust him as Leader of the Free World.
Before you commit your loyalty to any candidate, look at him or her as you would a job candidate. Any hiring manager will tell you they won’t hire someone who lies on their resume or in an interview. A sign of a bad employee is lying, cheating and stealing. Any of these will disqualify even the highest skilled person.
So why would you, the American public, accept any of these in your highest paid employee?
