This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "victory" except when he's talking about his own campaign. President Obama has given a speech on the war in Afghanistan at West Point without mentioning the word "victory" once. But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed ... when the roar of the crowd fades away ... when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger ..During his administration, government has taken greater control over the car (to be fair, this was in conjunction with Bush's earlier work, but supported by President Obama), healthcare, finance and student loan industries... take more of your money ... give you more orders from Washington ... and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world President Obama desires to reduce our nuclear arsenal while also making cuts to our missile defense program. America needs more energy ... our opponent is against producing it. President Obama has doubled down on a jobs killing drilling moratorium in spite of court rejection.
Victory in Iraq is finally in sight ... he wants to forfeit.
Terrorist states are seeking nuclear weapons without delay ... he wants to meet them without preconditions.
Al-Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America. Both the Christmas day bomber and Time Square bomber, while both thankfully unsuccessful, had ties to al-Qaeda ... he's worried that someone won't read them their rights? Both men were read Miranda Rights. Government is too big ... he wants to grow it.
Congress spends too much ... he promises more. See Porkulus I, II, and III for starters.
Taxes are too high ... he wants to raise them. His tax increases are the fine print in his economic plan, and let me be specific.
The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes ... raise payroll taxes ... raise investment income taxes ... raise the death tax ... raise business taxes ... and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars.See here, here, and here for a small taste. My sister Heather and her husband have just built a service station that's now opened for business — like millions of others who run small businesses.
How are they going to be any better off if taxes go up? Or maybe you're trying to keep your job at a plant in Michigan or Ohio ... or create jobs with clean coal from Pennsylvania or West Virginia ... or keep a small farm in the family right here in Minnesota.How are you going to be better off if our opponent adds a massive tax burden to the American economy?
