Obama Has Compassion, Morality, and a Patriotism that Romney Canít Comprehend


Obama Has Compassion, Morality, and a Patriotism that Romney Canít Comprehend

As a concept, integrity is consistency of principles, expectations, and outcomes, and in ethics, it is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness of oneís actions. In nearly all circumstances, integrity can easily be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy in that it regards internal consistency as a valuable virtue. Any nation on Earth should consider a leader who exhibits integrity a valued commodity, and for the past three years and ten months, Americaís President has exemplified integrity in serving all the people regardless of race, religion, socio-economic status, or sexual preference. Conversely, the Republican candidate for president exhibits all the hypocrisy and anti-American values his party demands of its representatives, and promises, if elected, to take the country back to Bush-era policies his party fought to preserve since Inauguration night 2009.

Over the course of eight years of Republican rule, they embroiled the nation in two unnecessary and unfunded wars, gave the wealthiest one-percent of Americans unfunded tax cuts, and squandered a budget surplus on oil subsidies and corporate entitlements. Their economic malfeasance and deregulation sent the world economy to the brink of collapse, and left President Obama with an economy that was hemorrhaging over 800,000 jobs a month when he took office. To show their displeasure at the nation for electing an African American President, they met on inauguration night to plot their economic recovery obstruction to keep the nation in the throes of deep recession they worked 8 years to accomplish, and keep millions of Americans unemployed and struggling to survive in the Bush-Republican economy.

As the economy reeled with no hope of recovery, President Obama and Democrats passed an economic stimulus that reduced taxes and created millions of jobs, bailed out and saved the American automobile industry, and passed banking reforms to prevent a repeat of the Bush-Republican economic disaster the world still suffers from while Republicans fought tooth and nail to perpetuate Americaís recession. All the while, President Obama maintained his integrity and pursued an agenda that helped businesses, workers, and struggling Americans provide their families with food and shelter as Republicans sat on their hands, drew Congressional salaries, and voted no to keep the country mired in the economic morass it took them eight long years to create.

In an epic display of compassion and executive acumen, President Obama marshaled support from the insurance industry and healthcare professionals to pass historic healthcare reform to provide affordable insurance coverage to tens-of-millions of Americans, and correct decades of insurance industry malfeasance that robbed policyholders of their premiums while denying them health care services. Throughout the healthcare reform debate, Republicans lied, misinformed, and fear mongered to prevent passage of the Affordable Care Act with accusations it was government takeover of healthcare, socialism, and medical care rationed by death panels. Republicans even proffered that healthcare was a privilege reserved for those fortunate enough to maintain employment during the economic meltdown they created and promise to return to if Americans support them at the polls today.

2. It's true. They yell about patriotism, but honestly have no idea what TRUE patriotism is, whether

on an economic, social, environmental, or moral sense.

3. Great Post

Romney is just another carpetbagger and so is the Bush family. Will the people in the south ever learn?
