Obama and Romney on Fiscal Issues (Video)

Written by  The New American Staff

The two major presidential candidates, incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, like to portray themselves as stark opposites on fiscal issues. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney portrays Obama as a spendthrift who would continue spiking federal spending and taxes. He also claims he would return the nation to fiscal sanity. Obama, on the other hand, claims Romney's proposals would be damaging to the economy.

In the video below — part one in a four-part series produced by our video partner Liberty News Network — The New American correspondent Thomas R. Eddlem takes a hard look at the budget numbers put out by the White House and the Romney campaign. In sum, both Obama and Romney would drag the nation further into a debt pit. The plunge into the pit for working Americans would be less taxing with Romney — though the debt crash would come sooner.

    It is almost like the Jimmy Carter vs. Ronald Reagan campaign all over again.

    In both cases, one can see how the INSIDERS are herding the American "Sheeple" from one INSIDER stooge into the arms of another INSIDER stooge.

    This YouTube will clarify the Tweedledee vs. Tweedledum show very nicely.

    It is hoped that maybe some of the herd will still do a double-take, even though the INSIDER media have destroyed the Ron Paul campaign.

    In any case, join the John Birch Society, if you have nowhere to go. You might very well find out how to solve this problem there.
