They’re both full of it

Dear Editor:

I think Mitt Romney has given too many speeches, and he has lost track of total numbers he keeps changing! As to the Keystone pipeline, he first said it would create 3,000 jobs and now the jobs created have been increased to 100,000 – quite a change! Is he running for president of the U.S.A. or president of the Exaggeration Club?

In his recent TV ads, he promises to bring 200,000 jobs to Colorado! If he promises that in all 50 states, it would amount to 10 million jobs! Are these jobs at McDonald’s and Wendy’s? Is he going to bring back all the jobs he outsourced?

Doesn’t the Romney-Ryan ticket realize how much our population has grown in the last 20 years? And as our population grows, the costs of running our country grows also.

They are living in the past and the good old ways don’t work any more! They think taking many things away from the middle class will resolve our economic problems, but that’s not true. Romney’s running mate Ryan claims he has climbed some of the fourteeners in Colorado, but he can’t remember which ones! The lies and deceit from the Bush years are still with us!

How anyone can believe the Republican B.S.? I don’t know – won’t it ever stop?
