Back to the comment... we are in the car, driving down the road and listening to the Romney speech with (of course) editorializing from dad when my Eight year old (soon to be Nine) son, who is also listening and not plugged into his DSI Gaming device says: "You know Dad... you are right, that man does want to destroy our country. What is up with Republicans, why are they like that?"

Here is what prompted him to say that when he heard this (from Romney's speech):
The President has run out of ideas. Now, he's running out of excuses. And tonight, we are asking the good people of South Carolina to join the citizens of New Hampshire and make 2012 the year he runs out of time.
I get that he doesn't really understand what is happening BUT, he knows that President Obama has a lot of ideas and that he is not making excuses. He knows that the Republicans are the ones who block bill after bill that the President proposes in order to get this country moving again. His comment following the one above was "Why is this man lying about President Obama". To that I could only answer: "It's the way politics in our country works and it's really to bad".

But there was a more chilling part to Romneys speech that bothered me even more:
The path I lay out is not one paved with ever increasing government checks and cradle-to-grave assurances that government will always be the solution. If this election is a bidding war for who can promise more benefits, then I'm not your President. You have that President today.
Basically Romney just said here: "Hey folks, Guess what... When I am President - you get no safety net"... He is saying straight out here that benefits, (benefits that millions of Americans pay into and need) will be gone.

This is what this election is all about. Protecting America from one group of people that want to completely destroy the social safety net that was put in place to protect Americans from the ravages of the unregulated free market.

As a nation we cannot allow this safety net to be destroyed for the millions and millions of Americans who need it just to survive.

Take the advice of my Eight Year old and stop these people from trying to destroy our nation.
