Better choice

To the Editor:

As I watched both political conventions over the last couple of weeks, I was struck by the unfortunately poor choice our nation faces this November.

While the Republicans displayed a deplorable amnesia for their party’s role in the crash that occurred in 2008, the president offered scant few details on how he will operate differently in a second term to get our nation out of the mess beyond what he’s already done.

A roadmap to breaking the partisan gridlock in D.C. also was sorely lacking on both sides.

What struck me the most, however, was how thin Gov. Mitt Romney’s support was from his own convention. Speaker after speaker extolled themselves while giving short shrift to their nominee. Their goal of defeating President Barack Obama was palpable and intense, unlike their support of Romney.

All this begs the question, if Romney is elected president and his promises and programs fail to change anything, who will stand up for him? I suspect his support will be paper thin, setting us up for four years at least as bad as the past four.

Here’s hoping the better man wins and looking forward to a better choice in 2016.
