When you wake up on November 7th, one of two men will be President of the United States. The choice between the two has never been clearer in generations. Compare and contrast how President Obama and Mitt Romney spent this holiday week.
President Obama hosted 1,200 veterans at a White House picnic on Independence Day. Then he went on the road to talk to regular Americans. One woman sobbed in President Obama’s arms after he listened to her story about a sister who died of colon cancer because she couldn’t afford health insurance. [photo via]
Stephanie is one face out of millions of Americans who are priced out of single payer health care through no fault of their own. She thanked him for fighting to pass Obamacare. So other families wouldn’t have to live through her same tragedy.
Meanwhile, in a tiny, rather well-to-do town in New Hampshire, Mr. Romney marched in the local Fourth of July parade. Then he returned to his estate on the lake and took his family for a ride on his boat.
I believe the building behind them is the $650,000.00 boathouse. [photo by Charles Dharapak]
