New art form

To the Editor:

Mitt Romney has taken lying to a new art form. First he was for abortion, now he is against it.  He said the first thing he would do when he came into office was to eliminate Obamacare, now says he would leave in the pre-existing condition and continued care for 26-year-olds

If you think you know what he stands for, you are wrong. He doesn’t even know. What we do know is that he will be working for the richest 2 percent and taking the country back to the Bush years. While governor of Massachusetts, job creation fell from 36th to 47th in the country, and the debt burden grew to the highest in the nation. 

We know what Obama stands for because of his accomplishments. In spite of record GOP filibusters and an economy in free fall, he prevented a severe depression, passed the stimulus bill that created 4 million new jobs, and passed Obamacare, which will cover 32 million uninsured Americans. He ended the war in Iraq, is withdrawing troops from Afghanistan and killed Bin Laden. Unemployment is down and the Dow is up.
