I know, we've beat this up pretty good, but I wanted to share this from the LA Times.
Two I especially liked.
David Willett of Goleta, for example, wanted specifics from you on the economy:
“I'm a middle-aged white male working in the defense industry and not part of the 47%. Romney's promised gifts to me (lower tax rate and increased defense spending) weren't enough to win my support. I wanted him to address the biggest economic crash of my lifetime. It was just four years ago.
“What would you have done if you were president? Persuade me your policies would have led to a much stronger recovery by now. Persuade me you understand what happened, and then explain it to me. Impress me with your grasp of this significant crisis.
“Romney ran his campaign on the theme that our current weak economy is a direct result of Obama's failed policies. Romney didn't directly address the crash, or even acknowledge its lasting impact. He barely conceded that the incumbent inherited a tough economy. The economy was supposed to be Romney's strong suit. But his decision to not directly address the 2008 economic collapse made his criticisms of Obama's policies, and advancement of his own policies, seem superficial and unfounded.”
“Romney, who started his life on the 50-yard line of a 100-yard dash, doesn't seem to understand America.
“In the 1960s, I attended community college, and completed my education at a state university, while receiving monthly support through the GI Bill. Now retired, I receive monthly payments from Social Security, and my healthcare is provided though Medicare. I am forever committed to the stubborn belief that a community working together, in many circumstances, is preferable to individuals pursuing their own self-interest.
It is my sincere hope that all Americans will have access to the same opportunities that I have had. And that none will ever be deterred due to disparagement by politicians as dependent on government.”
