Westchase Youngster Gets Up Close and Personal With Political Process

Thousands turned out for the Barack Obama Rally on Thursday.

Jaden Waz, 9, is involved with student government at Corbett Prep. He made it a point to go to President Barack Obama's rally today in Tampa.

"He wanted to see a real presidential rally and view the process first hand," said Jennifer Dawson, owner of Dawson Dance Academy in Westchase. "He loved today's energy and excitement."

Dawson was happy to oblige her son.

"I thought it was important for him to see the president in our home town," she said. "To feel the energy and excitement of politics and how 'the people' truly can make a difference when we work together."

Tough to put your politics out there when you ate a small business owner. The country is divided and its not exactly 50/50 in Wrstchase. Maybe it was more about the experience than the particular politician.

Consider these facts before you vote: 1. Is the economy better off now than it was four years ago? Based on the evidence, I'd have to say no. Wages are down, the the prices of everything we buy is up. The price of gas has doubled. Good jobs are scarce. 2. Are the slight "up tics" in the economy a solid trend in the right direction? I don't think so. First, the gains are very slight. Second, I believe they are the result in the temporary stimulus by the Federal Reserve, in which they printed a lot of new money. It provides a slight bump now, but the cost will come later - after the election. Ben Bernanke is trying to save Obama's job, along with his own. 3. The continual misrepresentation of Romney on the auto bailout by the Obama administration. Obama appears to be taking complete credit for the bailout, while simultaneously saying that Romney was for liquidation of the auto industry. This is an absolute falsehood. It was Bush who initiated the bailout and TARP. Obama continued it and then expanded it, to his credit. However, Romney was one of the first to say that the industry needed to go through bankruptcy reorganization, and eventually they did exactly that. He also said that any needed loans should come from the private sector. He never said that the industry should be liquidated, or that he would deny federal funds if he were president, and private sector funds were not available. Obama lies! 4. The Benghazi coverup and lies.
