Ho! Ho! Ho! Did you vote for Santa Claus?
(The following analogy was so brilliantly made by a national media figure and it is so very true I felt the need to expand on it)
The election this week gave us two different choices for president 1) Mitt Romney who asked/told us that with our hard work and by us taking personal responsibility he could help lead this country to a better place. The other choice was for 2) Santa Claus (Obama) and that naughty or nice he could deliver free stuff for everyone! It doesn't matter what it costs, you deserve it in fact we in government owe you. We will just get someone else to pay for it.
The choice was clear 1) Hard Work and Personal Responsibility vs - 2) Santa Claus
Santa Claus won.
To those of you who doubt this, I encourage you to get on You Tube and search "Obama Phone Ohio Video" and watch the 45 second video. This is the mentality that hard working responsible Americans are up against.
Sixty years ago John F. Kennedy said "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." Today Obama and the Democrat party see it the other way around. Many agree they have it bass-ackwards.
I'm repeating myself, but the choice was clear this election 1) Hard Work and Personal Responsibility or 2) Santa Claus
Santa Claus won, America lost.
