And here’s Mitt (vs. Obama).

He said, he said…

The President has pledged to “transform America,” and he has spent the last four years laying the foundation for a new Government-Centered Society. ~ Mitt Romney

I have never been somebody who believes that government can or should try to solve every problem. ~ President Obama


He saw free enterprise as the villain and not the solution. ~ Mitt Romney

I believe deeply that the free market is the greatest force for economic progress in human history. ~ President Obama


When you attack business and vilify success, you’re going to have less business and less success. ~ Mitt Romney

I know that the true engine of job creation in this country is the private sector, not Washington. ~ President Obama


… tax increases become not only a necessity, but also a desired tool for social justice. ~ Mitt Romney

I’ve cut taxes for small business owners 17 times over the last three years. ~ President Obama


… government spending always increase because…well why not? ~ Mitt Romney

As President I’ve eliminated dozens of programs that weren’t working. And put annual domestic spending on a path to become the smallest share of the economy since Dwight Eisenhower held this office. ~ President Obama


If we become one of those societies that attack success, one outcome is certain — there will be a lot less success. ~ Mitt Romney

In this country broad based prosperity has never trickled down from the success of a wealthy few. It has always come from the success of a strong and growing middle class. ~ President Obama


We’ll stop the days of apologizing for success at home and never again apologize for America abroad. ~ Mitt Romney

I have no doubt that we will continue our long and prosperous journey as the greatest nation on Earth. Thank you. God bless you. God bless the United States of America. ~ President Obama

Whether or not Mitt’s the GOP nominee, the Presidential debates should be interesting. No?

Lame post for sure, let's stick to yoga and forward thoughts. Keep politics out of elephant journal.

Dear USians, please don't vote for Romney. Obama may not be perfect but clearly the better choice! Thanks.

I’ve always appreciated that elephant journal is not political. I very much enjoy the inspirational posts but I just can’t swallow this one because it seems pointless. Reality is based on action. If you are a truth seeker, you will see that in reality both parties of the political American machine do not speak the truth. Obama is a great speaker but like any politician, their words often contradict the policies they enact.

Every four years open minded spiritual intellectuals fall for the same eloquent spoken words of the Democratic candidate without ever holding them accountable for the policies they support. I’m not Republican; I’m not Democrat, I’m Awake. My hope for anyone supporting Obama because he says all the things you like to hear is that they open their mind and seek the truth.
