Cherokee Tribune Endorses Romney

Posted on | October 14, 2012 | 3 Comments

You’re thinking, “Cherokee? You mean, like Elizabeth Warren?” No, this is an editorial in the newspaper in Cherokee County, Georgia:

During his first two years Obama had a Democratic-controlled House and Senate to pass any plan or idea to help the tattered economy. Instead, he made his overriding priority not job creation but the radical transformation of this country’s health care system, which though far from perfect is the best in the world for a country so large. That government takeover of health care, if left in place, will deprive millions of Americans of their present health insurance and degrade the quality of care provided for all of us. His preferred model is socialized medicine along the lines of Great Britain and other European countries.
That’s fitting, because his economic policies have this country following Greece and Spain toward bankruptcy.
This is a president who seems fundamentally out of touch with most mainstream Americans and sees Main Street America as something to be scolded. He routinely villanizes the private sector and pushes policies that punish profit. As he chided successful Americans this summer, “You didn’t build that!” . . .

Read the whole thing.

    Arlen Specter is dead. They keep describing him as a “moderate Republican,” but my recollection is that he ended his career as he began it – as a Democrat.

    And what he called himself in between didn’t count for much.

    He was opportunist, like so many in American History, but he was just so crass and classless about it. At least James Michael Curley had some charm; Arlen was the exact opposite.
