October 21. 2012 Why Mitt? Reality Over Fantasy
EDITORIAL The undecided New Hampshire voter has just two weeks to answer this question: Why switch from Barack Obama to Mitt Romney? By now the question is easy to answer if one has been listening to the candidates.
Barack Obama was in Manchester on Thursday. When he came to Veterans Park in 2008, he sold hope and change. He was uplifting, inspiring. Last week, that was gone. In its place was the negativity, the deception, the nastiness that Obama once said he wanted to remove from politics.
Obama offered New Hampshire nothing but bitterness and envy. He attacked Romney with a litany of mischaracterizations and deliberate falsehoods.
It was far from the uplifting message Obama delivered four years ago. But four years ago Obama did not have an indefensible record.
He could say that investing billions in high-speed rail and solar energy and electric cars and college loans and road repair was the path to prosperity, and many found it plausible. Now, when he offers the exact same proposals, as he did on Thursday, we can look back at the last four years and note that he has done all of those things and they did not work.
What Obama offers America is a fantasy. Sputtering economies are not sparked back to life by government-directed spending on industries hand-chosen by politicians. They are revived by unleashing the energy and creativity of the American people.

“Hope and Change II”?
that is what the media has created. I do not believe it will work twice
I hope we change.
I hope we change.
With the polls tied, I am not so sure. We have a dumbed down and indoctrinated electorate fed a daily dose of untruths by the mainstream media. In a real world, Romney should be up by 15 points.
Brutal, accurate and truthful. Go mittens!!!
I agree, and I think the results will have Romney winning with larger than expect results because it doesn’t seem the dumbed-down, indoctrinated electorate is too motivated to go vote for Obama again...my bigger fear is voter fraud as the ‘Rats have that down to a science...
Reality over fantasy or man over man-child
It is so very confusing to me that a very simple billboard that in no way refers to race in either words or picture can be construed as racist. It is despicable that Clear Cannel would capitulate.
What could possibly be simpler for the people of America???
It was never 'Hope and Change'. It was 'Dopes in Chains', folks just misunderstood.

This is what “capitalism” boils down to. The free exchange of goods and services between free people, versus the coercive taking of resources accumulated by individuals in free exchanges.
The only way obama can win this is if there is a massive amount of voter fraud
Funny you should mention it. In this "real" world (absent the ridiculously passé +8% -to- +12% Democrat "weighting" these polls carry like a case of AIDS around their thus-manipulated necks), Romney is up by 13-15%.
At an absolute minimum.
Which is why all the Polling joints and "News" outlets are scrambling all over each other in how best to justify the actual numbers before election day makes them all look like the lying, unreliable imbeciles that they are.
Their hope and belief up until shortly after the first Debate was that, if they kept repeatedly trumpeting this "Obama Lead" lie over and over enough times, the lie would become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The GOP base would become disheartened and unenthused, and the DemRat base would become energized to the point that they could shape, and turn around, the reality with their propaganda.
They have finally figured out that their lies are not working any better with the public concerning the election than did their lies that The TEA Party is racist, or DOA. You just can't convince 70% of the public that they are something they're not by repeating lies about them.
We know who we are, and lying about us only makes us more firm in our resolve to be done with them and their ilk.
Romney by 12-17%. Mandate Landslide Majority, with Obama fighting to hold onto Massachusetts, California, and maybe as many as three (3) counties in New York and Florida. Romney names Sarah Palin as his new Attornay General, with orders to jail every treasonously complicit crony from the previously corrupt cabal staining our White House and Congressional Halls.
;^) Watch, and be amazed.
