The last presidential debate left a clear picture of the choice we face in this election. As commander in chief, President Obama leads with a steady hand and strong values. Mitt Romney, however, tried to hide his extreme foreign policy positions by pretending to agree with the President on issue after issue—once again proving why he is the wrong choice to lead our country on the world stage.
But Romney plans to take us back to the failed policies of the past on more than just foreign policy. As the President said, Romney wants "to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s, and the economic policies of the 1920s." In fact, when it comes to women's rights and women's health, Romney is propping up the most extreme positions in his party. His running mate Paul Ryan referred to rape as a "method of conception," and co-sponsored a bill with Rep. Todd Akin to redefine rape. And the only U.S. Senate candidate Romney has endorsed in an ad? Richard Mourdock, who said pregnancies resulting from rape are "something that God intended."

Romney also spent this week trying to mislead voters on of the President's decision to save the U.S. auto industry. Now that the auto industry is roaring back and adding new jobs, Romney is trying to claim that he never wanted to "let Detroit go bankrupt." But there's no hiding the facts: Romney's position would've left American auto companies without any way of recovering. And rather than own up to the truth, Romney is now falsely suggesting that Chrysler plans to ship jobs to China—a claim Chrysler quickly condemned as untrue.
Find out exactly what Romney's plan would've meant for auto workers here.
While Romney is committed to going backward, the President has a clear, detailed roadmap to build a strong economy from the middle class out. See President Obama lay out his plan below, read the plan for yourself, and compare it to Mitt Romney's plan to go back to the same failed, top-down policies of the past.
Then, share the facts so everyone knows how we can move this country forward with President Obama.
