Can we survive four more years of Obama's cheap talk?

September 10, 2012 12:00 am

Talk is cheap! For years Americans have been buying what Barack Obama has been selling our uninformed citizens. His allies in the mainstream media have given him more free advertising than the total hours of all presidents since FDR.

But cheap doesn’t wear well. It won’t survive a fact check, is full of empty promises, and now we know it doesn't come with a warranty. This president has made decisions that are destroying the fabric of American genius.

Can we survive four more years of cheap talk? Or, will voters realize they must elect a national government of Republican leaders who know how to fix things? In November, we can buy an Energizer bunny to get this country moving again or settle for the cuckoo clock that now hangs in the White House.
