President Obama told voters on Sept. 2 that he has a "path forward." That path is the same one we just witnessed — the same failed policies — we've seen it. We watched what happened and we lived through it. We don't want to see it repeated.
We remember how Obama invested over a trillion dollars in Solyndra, Ener1, Beacon Power, Spectra Watt and other solar companies that have all gone bankrupt. And he invested the taxpayers' money without asking us. He criticized Romney's work with Bain Capital, but unlike Obama, Romney used private investment. Those companies he invested in were Burger King, Dominos Pizza, Staples, Toys "R" Us and other safe investments. Those companies have brought us billions in revenue while Obama lost trillions of taxpayers' hard-earned money.
Our president won't take advice from anyone. He refuses to listen to financial experts on how to navigate us out of this economic nightmare his reckless spending has gotten us into.
If re-elected, he is determined to repeat the same failed policies and make the same mistakes again and again, no matter how much pain it causes American families. Our children and grandchildren will be strapped with those $16 trillion of debt he's managed to increase.
The most dangerous policies Obama has followed are national defense policies. He has broadcast on national television how he will "cut billions from our weapon systems," and he will "slow down our development of future combat systems." If we don't keep developing future combat weapons, our enemies will, and that mistake by Obama is putting our country in harm's way. He also said, "I will achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals." Our nuclear arsenals are a deterrent to our enemies like Iran and North Korea. Obama has all but shut down NASA and reduced the most powerful United States Navy to its smallest force since 1930.
I have seen enough of this president's disasters. We don't want a repeat of his policies.
