Clear choice to make between two candidates

info@islandpacket.comNovember 4, 2012 

We have a choice: An incumbent who extricated us from a horribly misguided military adventure in Iraq, who saved the American auto industry, who called the shot that sent Osama bin Laden to a well-deserved end, who reversed the rising trend in unemployment, who treated the deregulation malady infecting the financial system and who addressed some of the more egregious defects in our health system over the mindless opposition of the Republicans in Congress.

Or a dapper (though very earnest) chameleon of a candidate, a vulture capitalist justifiably regarded by Wall Street as one of its own, an exploiter of overseas tax havens, born to wealth and exhibiting an attitude toward mansions, cars, casual wagers and much else that reflects a mindset oblivious to the needs and concerns of the vast majority of the American people.

And then there's the matter of Romney-Ryan as the second coming of Bush-Cheney.
