Face it, Obama and his 4 year reign as president is nothing but a failure economically and even his foreign policies. So he has based his campaign on myths. And some of them are real doozies, such as:
#1: The rich don’t pay their fair share in taxes. False, as the top 1% pay 37% in federal income tax. He best do his research.
#2: The Republicans hate both women and minorities, and Obama also just because he’s black. Another myth, as it’s he who makes all that goes against his agenda racist. As it is, there’s many Republican women and minorities who have achieved high office and who spoke at the GOP convention demonstrate how fallacious this claim is.
#3: The bad economy is all former President George W Bush’s fault. Another falsehood or myth, whichever you want to call it. Besides the Obamanut having 4 years to pull the country together, and implement policies that would grow the economy and create jobs, what triggered the financial implosion on Wall Street were the problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which fostered lax lending practices and covered up their own financial deficiencies. Not a good record, is it, for one who is commander in chief?
And back in the Bush Administration days, Bush warned of the problems at these institutions and the consequences if Congress did not bring them under control. Seventeen times, Bush publicly called for reform of both institutions. But Congress ignored the warnings and denied there were any problems.
#4: Romney doesn’t understand the problems that everyday Americans face. Another mistake on Obama’s part. To understand what it’s like not to have a job, actually means it’s not necessary to experience it oneself. What really counts is whether a president has the capability and wisdom to fix those problems. By giving millions of dollars to charity each year, Romney has demonstrated his sensitivity to the needs of those less fortunate than he is.
#5: Republicans want to return to old policies. Fiscal responsibility may be an old policy, but it is as up to date as the plans that Republican-led states are now adopting to deal with overspending.
#6: Republicans want to end Medicare as we know it. Another myth Obama. This is far from the truth. Romney wants to leave Medicare intact for those 55 years or older. The latest plan by running mate Paul Ryan would offer future retirees the choice of a government program modeled on Medicare or private plans subsidized by
government. Romney has endorsed Ryan’s concepts in broad terms but has said the White House agenda will be his own, not his running mate’s. Which is more than what Obama admitted to, as he took the “savings of $716 billion”, to implement his healthcare plan.
