The 2012 Presidential Election will Determine 'the Kind of World We’ll be Leaving to Our Children'


First Lady Michelle Obama may be wrong about a lot of things, but she got this right.  The 2012 presidential election will determine “the kind of world we’ll be leaving to our children”:


( – Urging support for her husband’s re-election, First Lady Michelle Obama told a campaign event Monday evening that the “kind of world we’ll be leaving for our children” was at stake.

“[W]hether it’s health care or the economy, whether it’s education or foreign policy, the choice we make will determine nothing less than what kind of world we’ll be leaving for our children,” she told an Obama for America bowling fundraiser at New York’s Chelsea Piers complex.

“In the end, it really boils down to one simple question: Will we continue all the change we’ve begun and the progress we’ve made? Or will we allow everything we’ve fought for to just slip away? But that is the choice we face.”

Do we want to bequeath our children and grandchildren a nation that is head over heels in debt and addicted to spending money that we don’t have on things that we don’t need, a nation that is morally bankrupt and corrupt, and a nation that is a beacon of hopelessness and despair for people around the world?  If the answer is “yes,” then vote to reelect President Obama.  If the answer is “no,” then do everything you can to help elect whoever the GOP nominates.  I know what my answer is, and I’m doing my part.  Are you?
