Northwest Indiana Political Thoughts
I am personally going to vote for Mitt Romney, I have no interest whatsoever in another four years of President Obama. His fiscal policies are foolish and remind me often of the stuff that college kids cook up when they have no basis in reality, but lots of starry eyed theory. This week he has dropped the ball multiple times in foreign policy, and frankly he's been lucky that in three years this is the first time he had to deal with problems overseas. If Israel decides to deal with Iran themselves in the next month, Obama will once again embarrass us by falling all over himself to apologize to our enemies.
That's it ... no more vitriol or active campaigning for me. I won't be putting out a sign or connecting to bloggers all over the country. Romney is a bit boring I agree, and I don't love the fact that he's Mormon. I would personally prefer a man or woman who has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But he's more conservative fiscally, he's a successful businessman, and he's much more apt to defend the United States.
In Indiana, I will continue to support my long time friend Mike Pence in his race for Governor. I am excited to have the chance to actually vote for someone in the 1st Congressional race in Joel Phelps. I'm practical, it may take a couple election cycles to rid ourselves of Pete. I was vocal in support of Richard Mourdock over Richard Lugar in the primary, and of course will vote for Mourdock over Donnelly for the US Senate seat. Donnelly was so weak in his own South Bend Congressional district, he was hoping to win an easy race for Senate since he couldn't hold his own seat.
I will take the time next week to write about the local races, the ones that frankly have meant a whole lot more to my business and my family recently. This page does not endorse candidates, we made that decision a few years back when we were threatened by a Republican candidate with a lawsuit ... wow! But I am quite happy for any of our editors to take the time to tell us who they are personally voting for and why.
