Obama moving nation in right direction

Success - Article sent! close

While you have ably covered the upcoming election, I feel you should better highlight an important context. Four years ago, America faced its greatest economic crisis in generations. Employment was plummeting, and a second Great Depression appeared possible. Since taking office, President Obama has worked tirelessly to stabilize the economy and rebuild America's middle-class. This hasn't been easy, but we are moving in the right direction. We now have steady job growth, and recovery is under way.

Now Mitt Romney proposes a return to the Bush-era policies of cutting taxes for millionaires and giving freer reign to Wall Street that led us into this mess. This didn't work before, and it won't work now. I urge your readers to vote for Barack Obama.
