To the Editor:
I recently received a photo of a great yard sign. The red side says:
Romney’s Free Market
Romney’s Bain Capital invested PRIVATE money in: AMC Entertainment; Burger King; Burlington Coat Factory; Clear Channel Communications; Dominos Pizza; Guitar Center; The Sports Authority; Staples; Toys “R” Us; Warner Music Group
The blue center says: Vs. Obama’s Socialism
Obama invested TAXPAYER money in: Solyndra- BANKRUPT; Ener1 – BANKRUPT; Beacon Power – BANKRUPT; Abound Solar – BANKRUPT; Amonix Solar – BANKRUPT; Spectra Watt – BANKRUPT; Eastern Energy – BANKRUPT
All of these companies were Obama campaign contributors.
The white side says: The Choice is Clear…
Do you want a businessman who has GENERATED BILLIONS or a President who has WASTED TRILLIONS?
That sign really sums it up for me. As Romney noted during the first debate, President Obama has, by granting billions to the above companies, engaged the government in picking winners and losers in business. Unfortunately, he keeps picking the losers.
The economy is vitally important in this election. Vote for the clear choice: the businessman who knows how to generate money.
