2012 will be a Year of Hyperbole

Wait ‘til you hear the dire predictions and the inflated analysis that the candidates spew at you! The job of the voter in America is not an easy one, but most still don’t take it very seriously.

Here’s what Mint Romney said the other day (get ready because you’re going to hear a lot of this kind of thing in the next eleven months):

“This could be our last chance to save America from a Greece-like bankruptcy. The nation is only inches away from no longer being a free economy.”

Romney goes on and on about “saving the soul of America.” The New York Times describes it as “the politics of apocalypse avoidance.”

Rick Santorum is saying that “…this election is about whether America and its very essence will continue.”

Newt Gingrich calls it the most important election since 1860.

The Democratic Party will talk about it in different terms. President Obama has already called the coming election “…a make or break moment for the middle class, and for all those who are fighting to get into the middle class. Because what’s at stake is whether this will be a country where working people can earn enough to raise a family, build a modest savings, own a home, secure their retirement.”

You get the idea!
This is going to be some 10 months ahead! Fasten your seatbelts! Have a throw-up bag at hand! Gird you loins! And, get ready for an all-out cat fight!

And, oh yes, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  1. I wonder if Politician's really care about the welfare of the country or do they care more about being reelected and maintaining their power...
