FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN

TWO ”BRIDGES” BACK TO AMERICA’S MISERY
Mitt Romney won the Michigan Primary because he was able to sell false hope to the voters that he would be able to bring back thousands of lost auto assembly jobs, about 330,000 since 2000, if he wins the presidency. He gave to the voters what they would like to hear to earn their votes even if, as a successful businessman as he brags to be, he presumably knows in his heart that those factory jobs will never come due to downsizing and restructuring.
John McCain told them the truth about the declining auto industry suggesting instead establishment of job-creating Green Technology designed to clean the environment. He lost the primary election to the glib-tongued salesman, the Republican counterpart of the phony-speaking Clinton couple. But he maintains his credibility and authenticity.
In a recent speech, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama criticized Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the presidency as an attempt to “build a bridge to the 20th century back to the scandal-ridden Clinton era. Well, isn’t it that upon his endorsement by JFK Family, he himself may be described as trying to build a bridge to the 60s back to the scandal-ridden Kennedy regime?
Let the American electorate beware of the reckless character of these two political families, the Kennedys and the Clintons, that are now trying again to get power with all their might at the expense of the national security and economic independence of the Untied States. Never forget that the reason why Cuba, a country in our backyard run by a dangerous dictator, still poses a threat to our national security was due to JFK’s error in judgment during the Bay of Pigs fiasco. Never forget that the reason for the 9/11 attack on our country by Islamic terrorists was due to the Clinton administration’s failure to secure our borders and airports.
Government documents and public records are available for all concerned Americans to check out the failure of both the Kennedy and Clinton administrations to keep the United States safe and secure from terrorist’s attacks and free from massive government spending.
Here’s a friendly advice to my fellow American voters: don’t believe everything the biased liberal media is suggesting that election year 2008 is a Democratic year and therefore the next president is a Democrat. The American people surely will not take the two “bridges” back to America’s misery.
