Driving Our Nation: Romney vs. Obama

If Obama and Romney were cars, what kind of cars would they be and why?

I recently read an article in The Washington Post about - ready? - the political race.  This one gave me a chuckle.  

A Republican-led polling conglomerate asked a group of independents who had voted for President Obama in 2008 the following question: "If President Obama was a car, what kind of car would he be and why?"

Some entertaining answers:

Toyota Minivan: “He seems like a family person, so I put a nice minivan.”

Kia: “He’s sort of new and sort of reliable, but I don’t have enough information on him.”

Edsel: “It might have a good engine underneath, but out of touch with reality.”

I'd like to hear from you: If Obama AND Romney were cars, what kind of cars would they be and why?"

This is Obamas last minute election ploy to appeal to the need for our own energy. He has never been in favor before.

Vote your pocket book. Since reassessment two years ago in 2010, property values based on actual sales data have decreased 5% per year. If your home was worth $200,000 in 2010, it could now be worth as much as $180,500 in 2012. In addition to this, both of Eastern Connecticut's casinos are downsizing their employee staff. Pfizer has left New London and is in the process of leaving Groton. In the third debate, or unfiltered discussion, Romney clearly stated that his administration would move to help make a 300 ship navy. General Dynamics and the U.S. Sub base remain at present, as Eastern Connecticut's two strongest employers. Obama wants to cut the military. Does anyone remember the military base closing, where the Groton base was one of the candidates for closure? With the closing the Navy base in Groton, and downsizing of General Dynamics activities, there would be a mass exodus from Eastern Connecticut, and value of your property could only be sold for pennies on the dollar. Vote your pocket book, while its still your pocket book.

I think Obama would be a Barbi Ferrari, lots of fun, pretty cool, but otherwise useless, and obsurd for anyone other than barbie and ken, where Romney would be a Rolls Royce, classy, stylish, you'd be crazy not to want one, but lets face it, it's not very practical or realistic.
