Presidential race is important, a repeat

ORANGE —  

Do we bring back Barack Obama? Do we vote in Mitt Romney and change everything?
Voters it is in our hands to decide between these two questions.
Obama came in blazing. Remember those speeches during his campaign? Yes I do!
He was moving, hip, captivating and even Oprah was brought to tears.
......and now......
Grey hair, less interesting and certainly a lot more people are far-less interested in listening to him speak when he interupts Grey’s Anatomy.
Is the Oval Office too big for the guy? Did George W. Bush leave too much trash behind for Obama to clean up? Does he need another four years to get things turned around or has he already shown he is in over his head and he is not the guy for the job?
Romney is the opposite of Obama, complete opposite.
He is a true Republican and wants to turn what Obama has started completely on its head and start over. 
We have seen this before. Obama did it when Bush left office. 
Bush had in some ways overstayed his welcome in the public eye and Obama was their guy. 
.....and now......
Romney is this election’s Obama. He might not be as interesting and he certainly does not give as exciting of speeches. Yet if you want change again and hope things will be different than they are now, vote Romney.
We all need to remember though it is not what these candidates promise to do right now, it is more about the situation they have us in three to four years from now.
Life in America must get better. Jobs are needed, the financial state must improve and countries around the globe must be given reasons to respect us again. 
Can we do it? Yes we can.
