IT'S TIME TO CHOOSE
by Chuck MacNab
Romney, Santorum and Gingrich looked very good and each had some good ideas on Mike Huckaby's show over the weekend. We don't know if any individual "won" the contest, or even if this show should even be considered a "contest." In our considered opinion, the absence of personal attacks on each other allowed the candidates to focus more on issues, which they did and this was a "plus" for viewers. Huckaby and FOX News are to be congratulated for formatting this program in the way they did. Unfortunately, Ron Paul was absent so those who watched the show did not have a chance to hear his "take" on some important issues.
We have held our choice in abeyance until this newsletter and, truthfully, had not really made a choice because we felt there should be time for each candidate to be "sorted out" in the minds of voters. However, we have come to the conclusion that time has run out for candidates to keep attacking each other over who should represent the Republican Party and make Barack Obama a one-term president.
It is time to choose, and we choose Mitt Romney.
Many reasons have emerged for us in making a choice sooner rather than later. One reason, among many, is our concern that the constant media highlighting of the battles between candidates, while it served an initial purpose, is now providing the Democrats with big-time ammunition and, perhaps more importantly, is beginning to turn conservatives away from political involvement. This suits the media and their pandering to Democrat bigwigs to a "T." We believe it is time to end that game!
Our goal is and has been to defeat Obama and his Czars, minions, hangers-on, camp followers and fellow travelers. We have come to believe, after extensive consideration, that Mitt Romney is the candidate who has the best chance to defeat Barack Obama. Let us state unequivocally, however, and as we have repeated over and over, we will work hard to support the Republican Party nominee for President, whomever that turns out to be!
