ELECTION 2012:: Voting for Romney, Ryan should be a no-brainer | TriCities

I applaud the recent letter by Jerry Chorosevic. Who cares how much Mitt Romney is worth? Did anyone care eight years ago how much John Kerry, the Democrat, was worth? I don’t believe so. Why would anyone vote for four more years of stagnant economic growth, high unemployment and continuous lies coming from the Obama Administration? Barack Obama has proven himself to ...
