Can anyone tell me why all the pro athletes look so grubby? Baseball, football — they look like a bunch of bums. The only ones who look good are the pro golfers. They dress well and look clean. Where is the image they should be giving to our young children? Also, the high schools should clean up there dress code — they show more skin than clothes.

Also, why do we as a strong nation put up with the events happening in the Far East? Why aren't Obama and Romney addressing the real issues were facing — economy, immigration, foreign aid — and stating what they expect to do about it? All we hear is excuses.

Let's elect officials with some backbone so they can solve America's problems. Voters, let's take back our country.
