Obama must go so this nation can get back on track. As they say in the south, “You cannot get the water to clear up until you get the pigs out of the creek.”

22 April 2012, Indiana (PA) Gazette, pg. A-5, col. 3 ad:
There’s an old West Virginia saying that says, “ You cannot get the water to clear up until you get the pigs out of the creek.” I can’t help but equate that saying to the upcoming U. S. Senate race in Pennsylvania. There are five candidate vying for this very critical seat but only one who can get the Obama-supporting Mr. Casey to leave Washington D.C. permanently. That candidate is Tom Smith.
