What Obama has ended "as we know it"

The most prominent and concise attack against Mitt Romney’s new running mate, Paul Ryan, is that his budget plan “ends Medicare as we know it”. Let’s take a look at some other things that have been ended “as we know it” recently, except these by President Obama:

  • Private health insurance
  • General Motors
  • Chrysler
  • United Auto Workers
  • Medicaid
  • Immigration
  • Student loans
  • Defense of Marriage Act
  • Don’t Ask Don’t Tell
  • No Child Left Behind
  • Libya
  • Egypt
  • Gulf oil drilling
  • Cuban embargo
  • Hate crime law
  • NASA
  • Financial regulation
  • Supreme Court
  • Payroll taxes
  • Food stamps
  • Welfare

Ending something “as we know it” is also called “reform” when it’s favorable. Since when did liberals become the champions of the status quo? Why are Medicare and Social Security the only things the federal government does that aren’t up for debate or reform?

Romney/Ryan 2012: Our time is now.

If you haven’t turned on an electronic device since last night, Mitt Romney will be announcing his Vice Presidential nominee this morning, and it will be Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. I’ve been hoping it would be Ryan for months, and I could not be more excited that I was right. Paul Ryan is a cheerful, brilliant, positive, inspiring reformer. He is exactly who we need to truly focus this campaign on what good, pro-growth, free market policies and smart, limited government can do to reverse our current progressive malaise. This choice also sets up Paul Ryan to run for President himself after 8 successful years in the White House. Our future is brighter this morning, America, and in November it will be blinding.

Not Four More Years, but a Fresh Start.

By now it should be obvious that I’m not objective observer of politics. I actively support electing Mitt Romney and making Barack Obama a one-term President. He had his chance in 2009 & 2010 with Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress to get our economy moving again (assuming you believe his policies would do that). Instead, he spent nearly $1 trillion on public sector union bailouts and boondoggle cronyism passed off as economic “stimulus”. Instead, he nationalized health insurance regulation, created new entitlements and federal bureaucracies to mandate things that Congress and the executive have no authority to oversee, arguing it was a life and death matter, but phasing it in over 7 years. Instead, he put chains and irons on small business and community banks with national financial regulation that hasn’t even been fully implemented almost two years later.

The people saw this vision of “change” for what it was, and in November 2010 they took back as much of the government as they could (dozens of state legislatures, governorships, and the US House of Representatives). This November we have the chance to take back the rest. We must win back the US Senate, and we must win back the White House. If we don’t, Obamacare becomes permanent, we get 2-4 more liberal Supreme Court justices, and 8% unemployment, $3 gas, spiraling debt, and $1 trillion deficits become the new normal. Our nation cannot survive that.

Mitt Romney has the vision and experience necessary to wake us from this national nightmare of malaise and dependence. As a business manager and owner he turned around failing companies, created jobs, and evolved industries by eliminating failed business models and creating new, successful ones. As the savior of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, he took the organization from corruption and deficits to a budget surplus and an inspirational and successful international games. As governor he consistently fought for lower spending, lowered taxes, and balanced the state budget, all with the help of the 80% Democratic state legislature.

Barack Obama’s pre-election experience went from navel-gazing in the faculty lounge to rabble-rousing and divide-and-conquer on the streets of Chicago. No wonder he got not a single Republican vote in the House on his signature “achievements” of the stimulus and Obamacare. Mitt Romney’s experience over the last forty years in businesses, community, and government is the picture of principled leadership.

We need Mitt Romney in the White House, and he needs your support to get there.
