I’ll admit at the start I was far from Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter. While the other GOP candidates came and went – and along with them my preferred candidate at the time – I knew damned well that I was never going to vote for Barack Obama. Everyone who ends up voting for Romney or against Obama, I’m sure, will have their reasons, but mine were – and are – simple: while I can accept a lot of things, like good intentions gone awry, or incompetence, I cannot suffer a liar. And, in the case of Obama and everyone associated with him, from his wife to his campaign staff, systematic and pathelogical liars.

Whether it’s Stephanie Cutter, David Axelrod, Jim Messina, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, David Plouffe, Jim Carney, Robert Gibbs, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Michelle Obama, or even Barack Obama himself, everything that comes out of the mouths of these people are flat-out lies. Calling Mitt Romney a murderer, a felon, or a tax cheat, blaming the 9/11 Benghazi consulate attack on a stupid video, or trying to defend their records or hide their true agendas, these people are not just bold-faced liars, as a result of the Fast & Furious gun-running scandal, and the Benghazi attack, they are liars with American blood on their filthy, lying hands.

I guess what really bugs me the most about the Obama administration and campaign is not just the extent to which they’ve lied from almost the very start, but how the mainstream dino-media has kissed their own journalistic stands goodbye in exchange for a big fat slobbering kiss on Obama’s backside. I mean think about it:

Do you really believe that if John McCain were President the mainstream media would give him a pass on his unfulfilled campaign promises to push comprehensive immigration reform, cut the deficit in half, and bring the country together?

Do you really believe that if John McCain were President the mainstream dino-media would be giving him a pass on the current state of the economy (unemployment, gas prices, etc.) after nearly four years in power?

Do you really believe that if John McCain were President and something like the “Fast & Furious” gun-running scandal took place, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and at least one, perhaps two border agents, were made known there would be little to no interest by the mainstream dino-media?

Do you really believe that if John McCain were President and our ambassador to Libya and three other brave Americans would be left to die so as not to upset a political strategy gone bad that there would be little or no interest by the mainstream dino-media?

(I won’t even bother with Solyndra and the billions of dollars wasted on green energy loans to fat-cat Obama supporters and companies that went belly-up. Or the General Motors bailout that served only the interests of the labor unions in return for their 2008 support. At least no one died in these political debacles.)

You can call me a right-wing zealot if you want, but consider the above when you read this searing Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial on Barack Obama’s presidency:

U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in a well-planned military assault on their diplomatic mission in Benghazi seven weeks ago, the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. So why are details surfacing, piecemeal, only now?

The Obama administration sat by doing nothing for seven hours that night, ignoring calls to dispatch help from our bases in Italy, less than two hours away. It has spent the past seven weeks stretching the story out, engaging in misdirection and deception involving supposed indigenous outrage over an obscure anti-Muslim video, confident that with the aid of a docile press corps this infamous climax to four years of misguided foreign policy can be swept under the rug, at least until after Tuesday’s election.

When Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney promptly criticized the security failures in Benghazi, the White House and its lapdog media jumped all over him for another “gaffe,” for speaking out too promptly and too strongly. Prompt and strong action from the White House on Sept. 11 might have saved American lives, as well as America’s reputation as a nation not to be messed with. Weakness and dithering and flying to Las Vegas the next day for celebrity fund-raising parties are somehow better?

This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent at best on the economy – though a more careful analysis shows what can only be a perverse and willful attempt to destroy our prosperity. Back in January 2008, Barack Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that under his cap-and-trade plan, “If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them.” He added, “Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” It was also in 2008 that Mr. Obama’s future Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, famously said it would be necessary to “figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe” – $9 a gallon.

Yet the president now claims he’s in favor of oil development and pipelines, taking credit for increased oil production on private lands where he’s powerless to block it, after he halted the Keystone XL Pipeline and oversaw a 50 percent reduction in oil leases on public lands.

These behaviors go far beyond “spin.” They amount to a pack of lies. To return to office a narcissistic amateur who seeks to ride this nation’s economy and international esteem to oblivion, like Slim Pickens riding the nuclear bomb to its target at the end of the movie “Dr. Strangelove,” would be disastrous.

It’s not just me, folks, who see this administration as not just incompetent, but a filthy, lying bunch of incompetents. This is criminal incompetence to an extent that, were it anyone else but Barack Obama, the media would be falling all over itself calling for criminal investgations and, yes, impeachment. Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Sate Hillary Clinton, at a minimum, should have been forced to resign. Taking “responsibility” (whatever that means) for the deaths resulting from both Fast & Furious and Benghazi should accompany resignations as a starting point, not an avoidance by so-called “journalists”.

I wish Barack Obama’s presidency was one simply marked as a great idea gone bad due to incompetence, but there is real human blood and real human misery resulting from that incompetence. The debate in Denver showed a President who was not only so full of himself that he thought he could win the debate simply by showing up, but a President so disengaged from reality as to make one wonder about his general competency for the office. The vice-presidential debate showed the same thing in regards to his buffoon of a running mate, Joe Biden. Rather than presidential timber, these are rank amateurs and pretenders without a clue as to how to run a country; they are a disgrace to their offices beyond anything anyone could have ever dreamed.

Jimmy Carter might have been incompetent, but at least he respected the office of the President and didn’t have people die as a result of that incomptency. Bill Clinton might have had oral sex with a White House flunkie, but people gave him a pass because deep down they knew his primary interest and intentions was doing what was right for the American people. You can say all you want, “Bush lied, people died”, but we went into both Afghanistan and Iraq with the bipartisan support of both Republicans and Democrats.

Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 running on a “hope and change” agenda as a uniter who would cut the deficit, put people back to work, and implement comprehensive immigration reform. From the very start of his administration, he made it clear he had little interest in the hard work of being President; rather, he outsourced everything to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi while he enjoyed the perks of being President and the near-God-like adoration by those who believed he was something different than a hard-nosed, socialist Chicago street organizer with no experience at running so much as a lemonade stand in his life.

That would be OK in my view if that’s all he was. But with the human blood he has on his hands, the atrocities he has allowed to have been committed on his watch, he deserves impeachment and perhaps jail, not re-election to the office of President of the United States.

I believe Mitt Romney to be a good man and equally as well-intentioned as Barack Obama was in 2008. I don’t know if he will be able to do all the things he’s promising in his campaign, but I have little doubt that if his Attorney General hears about a cockamamie scheme to put guns and automatic weapons in the hands of Mexican drug lords, that would get the kibosh, and that if there’s a terrorist attack on some far-away consulate where people are fighting desperately for their lives and requesting help, that help will come ASAP in the form of military action. And those involved in the attacks will be tracked down and killed instantly.

I know I’m not setting a very high bar here, but then again, compared to what has transpired under the administration of Barack Obama, it won’t take a whole lot to turn the White House back over to mature and competent adults who understand what being President (and First Lady) means and restore some minimal level of honor, integrity, and prestige to the Office of the President. If we were to have four more years of these incompetent amateurs and clowns, without any fear of having to run for another term in office, America as we know it will cease to exist. Trust me, you’ll see the real Barack and Michelle Obama. No one will be safe.

For the sake of the presidency, for the sake of this country’s economic future, for the sake of its well-being and security, the only choice is Mitt Romney for President.
