My Final Election Thoughts

By Jedediah Bila

With just a couple of hours before election returns start rolling in, I thought I would share some final thoughts.

I voted for Mitt Romney bright and early this morning because I believe he is the best man for the job. Mitt and I haven’t always agreed on everything, that’s for sure, but he certainly presented a bold alternate vision to that of Barack Obama this election cycle. That’s what I wanted from the start–a candidate who would offer a strong alternative to voters, one that would exist in stark contrast to the policies of our President. That is precisely what Romney did.

I learned a lot about Romney this election cycle. I learned that he can hold his own quite well in a debate. I learned that he’s not afraid to talk tough on the issues. I learned that he can be funny and is a downright likable guy. I learned that he can get voters excited about turning things around. Most importantly, however, I learned that he is a solid leader. See, I always knew that Mitt was a competent businessman with valuable executive experience, but there was a time when I doubted his ability to galvanize voters, to exhibit gutsy leadership, and to be unafraid to tackle the big challenges of our time. I no longer have those doubts.

It was an honor and a pleasure to vote for Mitt Romney today. He and Paul Ryan ran an optimistic, solutions-driven campaign that I’m proud to support.

I know that Romney and Ryan believe in their policies, but more importantly, I know that they believe in our country. They believe in me and in you. I wish them the best of luck as the night unfolds.

Easy, Greg. If you don’t buy insurance, you don’t get cograeve.By the way a big step towards reducing the cost of medical care was discussed by the blogosphere, but not by Congress and that’s by reforming the medical tort law. Too many representatives both in Congress and in the White House with their hands in the pockets of lawyers.Reply

From 1994 to 2002, Obama served on the boadrs of directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago.So the obvious question is when did he see her dying in bed arguing with insurance companies? Her disability claim was refused in August of 1995.I do remember the last six months of her life, insurance companies threatening that they would not reimburse her for her costs. And her having to be on the phone in the hospital arguing with insurance companies when what she should have been doing is spending time with her family.”If she should have been spending time with her family, where was her family? And since she was ill, why didn’t her family go to her? And if this bothered Obama so much, why didn’t he do something as a lawyer? Why wasn’t her family helping her?Reply
