I am a republican, but I really dislike Romney and i really DISLIKE Obama as well.
Romney used to be a reasonable politician but has since become a puppet of the extreme elements of the party. Like McCain and George H Bush before him Romney was a moderate but had to sell his soul to get the Republican nomination. While I'm somewhat disappointed in President Obama A Romney presidency would be a disaster for America. George W Bush ran our country into the ground with reckless and unneeded tax cuts, deregulation, and a belligerence unilateral foreign policy. Now Romney's solution for our ills is what? Even more tax cuts, deregulation, and a more aggressive foreign policy. One of the definitions of insanity is to do the same thing over and over yet expect a different result. Romney is deja George W Bush. Why would going back to Bush 43's policies be expected to be any less disastrous now than it was 12 years ago? Under the Obama presidency the value of the stock market has doubled. Instead of bleeding jobs like under Bush 43 we are adding jobs (though still not enough) We became an international laughing stock under Bush 43 but President Obama has done a great deal to restore our standing in the world. Definitely not perfect but he is slowly steering us in the right direction instead of abruptly steering back to the wrong direction as Romney promises to do.
overseen: you will never convince conspiracy nuts. Romney will say anything to get elected. He used to be pro-choice, now he's pro-life. He used to support Roe v Wade but now he says it goes to far. He used to be for universal health care now he is against his own plan. He promised to defend stem cell research but now vows to end it. He used to be against helping the auto industry but now he is trying to take credit for Obama saving it. He used to say minimum wage should be tied to inflation but now he is against raising it even though it hasn't kept up. He used to say that he was not returning to Reagan policies but now he says Reagan was his hero. He signed the assualt weapons ban but now claims to be against gun control. As Massachusetts governor he refused to sign a no tax increase pledge but as presidential candidate he did. I'm amazed Romney doesn't get whiplash from the flip flopping so often (sometimes in the same day when he talks to different groups). Romney reminds me of a used car salesman who will say anything they think the buyer wants to hear to get them to buy a clunker. All politicians lie and pander but Romney brings it to a whole new level.
I hope you've all noticed that even among the people here with a clear preference for either Obama or Romney, NONE of us are enthusiastic about either candidate. The implication is that "who shall I vote for?" is not enough to be asking. Ask yourself instead, "what shall I do before the 2014 mid-term election to help move things in a better direction, so that maybe in 2016 our presidential choices will be less disappointing?"
I think Obama is a great guy but naive thinking that he could change Washington. He spent most of his first term trying to get Republicans to work with him when their main goal was to undermine his presidency. I do think that Hillary would have done a better job standing up to Republicans because she remembered how Republicans savaged her husband.
I am very dissapointed in Romney as "the candidate", but will likely vote that way anyway. I really liked Rick Santorum and thought he would have done an excellent job if given the chance. I think Obama will win, and if so, I wish him the best. I just hope he gets his moral compass lined up and finds that old thinking cap because he really needs it.
I feel that Obama is a really nice person, aside from his rep as a president and all that. Romney seems like a total d!ck on the other hand. And it doesn't really matter who wins because presidents don't make all the decisions anyway! They're puppets. But I'd rather have Obama for sure.
lol You sound like my father. I'm not really happy with Obama's work but I rather have him then Romney. I feel like I can't trust him, he remines me of those rich scamers you seen on American Greed. But I can't vote so how care about my opinion.
Well, you know what they say, "If you vote for Obama you're dumb, but if you vote for Romney you're even dumber!" Voting for either would be stupid, but I know we have A LOT of really stupid people in America so Romney will probably win!
If i could vote.. Romney. Just because im republican and obama is a liar. obama said nothing about a micro chip planted in our hand and we all burn in hell.
If he were a CEO, you think a Board of Directors would not look at his record....the numbers, 4 YEARS to show improvement, and not fire !?
