20 Months Of Running Against Obama!!! 

ran 3.9 miles
Our president is on the campaign trail "spiking the football" once again for reaching Osama Bin Laden's end zone around this time last year.  He is claiming that Mitt Romney would not have "pulled the trigger" on Osama.  I really didn't feel like wasting the energy to examine what exactly it was that he had said or in what context he had put it in because the fact that this is the direction he is going with his campaign at this point reflects how desperate and incapable of utilizing his record is for reelection.  Of all the legislation that has passed and out of all the events that have transpired over his presidential term, which is getting closer and closer to four entire years, the best idea Barack Obama has at this point is to remind us all that Osama Bin Laden was killed during his presidency and to merely speculate that, hypothetically, Mitt Romney would not have given the order.  I don't see the objective but I do see the desperation.

Coincidentally, here is a list of nine more things Herman Cain itemized yesterday that Barack Obama did, which Mitt Romney would also not have done:
  • Mitt Romney would never have thrown $862 billion down a rat hole, claiming it to be “economic stimulus” that would keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent. Then, three years later when unemployment was still struggling to get back down below 8 percent, he would never be so brazen as to claim such a move had actually been successful.
  • Mitt Romney would never have signed Obamacare into law. I know some think otherwise because the plan he implemented as governor of Massachusetts had some similar elements. But Obamacare was sold to the public with blatantly dishonest numbers and hidden taxes, and rammed through Congress via a series of political giveaways that would embarrass the most shameless of con artists. Whatever your disagreements with the structure of Masscare, Romney would never have done any of that. And if an Obamacare repeal reaches Romney’s desk, he will sign it.
  • Mitt Romney would never have exploded the deficit to more than $1 trillion a year, then allowed his Treasury secretary to tell the chairman of the House Budget Committee, regarding plans to fix the problem, “We don’t have a definitive solution, but we know we don’t like yours.”
  • Mitt Romney would not be running around claiming that businesses need to pay more in taxes. He would not try to tell CEOs what to do with their cash reserves (although he could do so much more competently than Obama, since unlike the president he actually knows a lot about business), because he knows that is not the president’s job. He understands that businesses are the ones who create jobs, and the last thing we need when the economy is struggling to create jobs is to increase the tax burden on businesses.
  • Mitt Romney would not attack people for being successful. He would not encourage the middle class to resent successful people, but instead would encourage them to learn from those who have been successful and to seek opportunities from them.
  • Mitt Romney would never have promised the Russians he would give them what they want on missile defense as soon as he didn’t have to worry about those pesky voters anymore.
  • Mitt Romney would never have stonewalled efforts to make crucial energy supplies available to Americans, as Obama has done on everything from the Keystone XL pipeline to the opening of domestic oil supplies in offshore locations and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
  • Mitt Romney would never have let Congress get away with not passing a budget at all for three years, while running up the nation’s credit card at unprecedented levels through a series of continuing resolutions that escape the light of public scrutiny.
  • Mitt Romney would never have blamed someone else for the continued impact of problems he was elected to fix – as Obama does endlessly.
199.4 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day245.
