Our clever title today comes via Foxiladi14. We have been busy making phone calls to get behind the scenes information and fortunately our information confirms a lot of the optimistic reports as to a Romney victory on Tuesday.
Our comments section has been superb and we are borrowing from there today. Those who are voting not based on skin color but on content of character there is this stark difference – “uniter, no red states, no blue states” Obama says vote for “revenge” but from Romney: Vote for love of country, not revenge:
For Republicans/conservatives who don’t believe Hillary supporters will vote for hope and change with Romney we are alerted to this Politico report from the comments section:
“Former Hillary aide backs Romney
Mitt Romney has been making a pitch for bipartisanship in the closing days of the race, and this morning rolled out an endorsement from Hillary Clinton’s former Senate state director, Gigi Georges:
“For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat. I am proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.”
For people in New York politics, Georges, who now lives in Boston, is a familiar name and face – she was also the executive director of the state Democracy Party when Clinton was in office. Romney’s been talking up Hillary Clinton for months on and off on the trail, and the final effort to appeal to some of her voters in places like Ohio has continued.
As we know all too well, it is difficult to reject your party’s presidential nominee because you also alienate political friends, social friends, contacts and networks you worked for a lifetime to achieve. Gigi Georges has, like us, done just that and deserves praise for putting country above corrupt party. It might not seem like such a difficult decision for some – but to throw away a lifetime investment in friends and political associates over principles is not such an easy choice to make for many. Thanks Gigi. And thanks to the many African-American Hillary supporters and others speaking against Barack Obama and his cronies.
