Out of the Blue

We had a fine old family outing yesterday, and the pastrami was exceptional, so a good time was had by all. It was a bit of an adventure on the roads, however, as we were confronted by a startling number of drivers who had difficulty staying even remotely in their own lane. My temptation is to blame it on cell phones, but in spite of seeing evidence that it was in some cases, it makes me feel like an old fogey to say that.

List (for yourself) the things about the past four years that you found to be disastrous. Ask yourself how Romney would have handled these things, vs. how Obama handled them. Consider whether these things would have hurt or helped the country.

Already tried it. The truth is I don't know enough about Romney to say exactly what he would do in each situation. Then there's the question of trying to guess what effect each action would have. The bottom line is that I am confident he couldn't possibly do any worse. He has at least proven that he can run a business with some measure of success, which is more management skills than Obama has ever shown me.

Again, vote for whomever you want. I'm not trying to talk anyone into or out of anything. Just sharing my (imperfect) rationalization for voting the way I am going to. Take it or leave it.
