This is my last commentary before Election Day, perhaps the most important day in modern American political history — the day we stop Barack Obama and defend capitalism. My prediction is a Mitt Romney landslide led by Christian and faith-based voters.
I’ve gone through an almost two-year ordeal with the IRS which, I believe, was triggered by my vocal criticism of the Obama Administration. Americans need to hear this story of a small-business owner with an unblemished tax record suddenly facing this kind of harassment, persecution and intimidation.
No one has EVER been able to go into the ring with Obama — the heavyweight talker — and “take it to him;” knock him out; leave him reeling; leave him shaking and breathless from body blows. Until Mitt Romney. Not just because Mitt is the smartest guy in the room — and he is. But because Obama has never in his career had to run on an actual record.
For the past month, as Mitt Romney trailed badly in every poll (especially in the all-important battleground States), I continued to predict a big Romney victory. Today, I’m making it official: I’m doubling down. Mitt Romney will win the Presidency, and it won’t be close.
I made a bold prediction four months ago here at Personal Liberty Digest™ — that Mitt Romney was on his way to a landslide victory over Barack Obama. I called it a repeat of Ronald Reagan’s landslide over incumbent President Jimmy Carter. Don’t look now, but that prediction just became reality.
We’ve gone from the world’s greatest economic superpower to a Barack Obama economy where Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi claim food stamps and unemployment benefits are economic activity. And in our final death throes under Obama we’ve become “The Suicide Economy.”
Did you see the latest POLITICO poll just out this week? Mitt Romney has a 14-point lead among middle-class voters. This poll points to a problem rarely ever mentioned in the media. Barack Obama and the Democratic Party have a big problem: a white voter gap.
As I record this video, the Chicago teachers strike has just ended after entering a second week. Isn’t that nice of them? The Chicago Teachers Union is getting a raise in the middle of a depression and they have decided to “allow” the kids to go back to school. These are such selfless people! It’s obvious they’re always thinking about the kids!
