Never has choice been more clear

The Democrat convention message surprised me. It sounded like the last of the “yes we can” crowd claiming both “no, we didn’t” and “no one could have” but we can get it done if you give us four more years.

“Yes we can” stimulate the economy with bailouts and trillion $$ stimulus spending but now it is evident “no we can’t and “no we didn’t,” “no one could’ve” but maybe we can in four more years.

“Yes we can,” “cut the federal deficit in half, first term,” but after 3.5 years and spending $5 trillion borrowed, it is clear that “No we can’t,” “no we didn’t” and “no we won’t” in the future. But we’re nice folks, can’t we keep our jobs even if you lose yours?

“Yes we can,” “keep unemployment under 8 percent with stimulus & bailout spending,” now it is obvious that “no we can’t,” and “no we didn’t” spend our way to economic prosperity. Even Bill Clinton said, “No one could have.”

Never has the choice been clearer. You and I (we) own this country and we together are interviewing candidates for the jobs of running this nation. Would you hire a person with this resumé to manage your personal finances?

Maybe we should say “yes we can” change course with a successful and experienced chief executive officer for president and a qualified chief financial officer for vice president. That would seem to be a better background experience to run this American national corporation than a “cool,” “nice guy,” street organizer.
