When people ask me who I am backing, I say I don’t care. I am backing the Republican Party candidate because Obama is so terrifically bad. He is the worst President in a generation, and may be the worst President since 1900.
Via Instapundit. Once our party settles on a nominee, we’re going to have to rally around him for that man is the individual who will have the best (indeed, the only) chance of preventing Barack Obama from serving a second term. And if his first term is any guide; his reelection will keep the federal government on a holiday from the nation’s real problems.
As president, Obama has so far failed to put forward a budget which keeps spending in check — and to propose a plan to reform entitlements to prevent their accelerating costs from pushing the federal government even further into debt. His jobs bill is a mere repacking of a program which has been tried and failed.
Not all the Republican candidates have signaled an understanding of the tasks facing our next president, but there are leaders, with powerful positions in both houses of Congress, who know what’s at stake. And they will have far more influence in Washington with a Republican chief executive.
