Today, Mitt Romney’s first commercial of the general election will be released (see video)
and it says that on “Day One” in the White House he would … Approve The
Keystone Pipeline, Introduce Tax Cuts, and Issue Orders To Begin
Replacing Obamacare. The Romney campaign’s first official ad in over a
month will air today through next Tuesday in Ohio, Iowa, Virginia and
North Carolina.

In 2008, we all had “Hope & Change” but no real understanding
what an Obama run Executive Branch of government would look like.

In 2008, then candidate Senator (Illinois) Barack Obama promised
Reducing The Deficit And Debt, Lobbyists “Won’t Find A Job In My White
House”, and Transparency In Law Making complete with a minimum 72 hour
internet posting of any proposed law before a vote by Congress.

In 2009, President Barack Obama further promised The Stimulus Will
Keep Unemployment Below 8 Percent, Stimulus Jobs Will Not Be Shipped
Overseas, the Housing Plan Will Save Millions From Foreclosure, Health
Care Negotiations Will Be Televised, ObamaCare Will Reduce Premiums, and
The Stimulus Will Create “Shovel-Ready Jobs”.

After over three years, we have a clear understanding and, sadly, the
type of Executive Branch that was promised … never materialized.

We all now have a new target to have hope for in the nature of the
change in the promises made by a replacement leader for the Executive
Branch of government.

Let the 2012 election season begin!

    All he should have to do to win is ask people a few questions.
    1. Did he keep his promises?

    2. Are you better off then you were 4 years ago?

    3. Do you think the country is better off than it was 4 years ago. (Those answers can differ)

    Use his own words to destroy him. Learn the read my lips campaign strategy. Worked against Bush 1.

    No - Why

    Because he can't do what he said he'd do on day one. The president doesn't change the tax code nor can he "repeal" ObamaRomneyCare. He doesn't seem to understand that the Congress makes laws, he doesn't.

    Just as the present President, Barack Obama, has used the power of the presidency to implement and de-implement (waivers) laws his office has control over, Mitt Romney would put forth on "Day One" a complete Waiver on all Obamacare activity as he works with Congress to Repeal the law if it had not been overturned in June 2012 by the Supreme Court. The president's office can also approve the Keystone Pipeline and he can introduce business friendly tax reduction strategies.

    Do not just throw what someone who cares about American opportunity can do "Day One" if they have the desire.

    Just look at what one person did who did not care about the Constitution, the Bill-Of-Rights, or the Rule-Of-Law to a country that broke all other molds of human oppression by Governments.

    The ad focuses on some of the real issues that face this country. It's the economy and jobs. Hope Romney is better at keeping his campaign promises than Obama has been.

    Its a little over the top, I don't think he can do that in his first day, but yes, its effective.

    I would really like to see a REAL plan. People are pretty tired of promises without a clear cut plan. That Hope and Change crap fell big time and people are looking for substance.

    I think that about 70% are already to vote their candidate. The 30% are Undecided independents. NO AD will make me vote for ANY Democrat the way they have screwed up the last 5 years.

    Does it really matter?

    When it comes down to it...It's voting for the lesser of two evils!

    It only matters in degree and IF everyone keeps the pressure up to vote out Establishment Politicians (of either party) and vote in limited government Constitutionalists, Bill-Of-Rightists, and those who adhere to the Rule-Of-Law.

    Sitting on the sidelines to leave in place an Obama Executive Branch is not the answer for Ron Paul absolutists.

    In this election cycle, for President, the only vote is for Mitt Romney ... and if he is elected, keep the pressure up for what the country needs to get opportunity and personal freedoms back to all citizens.
