While you have ably covered the upcoming election, I feel you
should better highlight some important context. Four years ago,
America faced its greatest economic crisis in generations.
Employment was plummeting, and a second Great Depression appeared
Since taking office, President Obama has worked tirelessly to
stabilize the economy and rebuild America's middle-class. This
hasn't always been easy, but we are moving in the right direction.
We now have steady job growth, and recovery is underway.
Now Mitt Romney proposes a return to the Bush-era policies of
cutting taxes for millionaires and giving freer reign to Wall
Street that led us into this mess. This didn't work before, and it
won't work now.
I urge your readers to vote for Barack Obama.
Andrew Mills, Killington, Vt.
I have followed with interest your recent coverage of the
election. However, one key fact has been underemphasized in your
reporting. Please remind your readers that our current President
has had four years to dig us out of the economic slump, and has not
done so. In fact, President Obama's "spend now, pay later"
policies have worsened the recession. Obama has brought us
ever-increasing debt and sky-high unemployment.
Mitt Romney has spent his life in business. Romney understands
that the road to recovery is to unleash the spirit of American free
enterprise. Only by lowering taxes and removing unnecessary
regulations can we recover the prosperity and opportunity that
should be the birthright of every American.
Mitt Romney is the right choice for our nation.
