On a rocket ride to economic shambles

Liberal test question of the season is: Why on Earth should I vote Republican?

Short answer: Because this liberal Democratic president has us strapped inside a fiscal rocket sled on rails.

In four more years, the brakes are gone and America’s economy is in shambles.  That, my liberal friends and neighbors, is why on Earth you should vote Republican. It may not feel good. Nevertheless, you must do it.

Romney-Ryan will not only put the air brakes on this doomed rocket sled, they will save Medicare from bankruptcy. They will treat our allies with respect and decency. They will stop the catastrophic defunding of our proud military.  Oil will flow from Canada through the Keystone pipeline.

Natural gas production, coal producers and oil exploration companies will be unshackled. Men and women will find that elusive four-letter word  — J-O-B-S — all across the length and breadth of this great country. Our progeny will respect us and be grateful that we saved them from a country in shambles and regained control of the asylum from the inmates on Election Day.

Doesn’t that sound great?
