Your civil and well-thoughtout response is very much appreciated.
However, it's really very simple. Yes, the global economy is also shaky but America has always led the way as being a stabilizing economic force.
We either choose more of the same with Congress never finding any common ground, cross our fingers and hope for the best - or we choose someone who will enact long overdue major reforms and who will work with both sides to find common ground, cross our fingers and hope for the best.
I'm going with the latter. It's a no-brainer to me. But, then again, apparently some disagree.
We need a Congress that will be willing to work with President Obama, whom we know to be moderate and to have guided our economy into recovery. With a reasonable Congress, one not dedicated to insuring his failure by being obstructionistic, President Obama will be able to enact necessary reforms. His foreign police has restored confidence in America’s position of leadership in the international community.

Most of all, we need to continue President Obama’s legacy of integrity.

I thought Liberals/Democrats told us that Tax Cuts created Deficits and had Zero effect on Job creation!! This approach sounds Pretty Conservative!!

You can see that venture capitalists Rick Scott and Rick Snyder have had "limited success", to put it kindly. The economists have dissected the Romney/Ryan plan as being extremely risky, and his healthcare plan heads for insolvency in short order. He has changed his positions numerous times over his political career. His foreign policy stance might be "me too", his defense(?) stance is to increase the budget on the largest military in the world - much of which is bound to end up with contractors. Do you really want another round of trickle down economics, reductions of benefits and an increase in federal spending? There's an ancient Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times."
I'm not impressed with many of the things Obama has and has not accomplished, and Congress is... disgusting, but there's another old saying - "better the devil you know". I don't care about school records - I'd much rather know someone's financial records and that they aren't eager for the Tribulation.

What is obama hiding?
-
Barrack Hussein Obama's Sealed Medical, College Transcripts, Indonesia Grade School, and College Records do include a type of Birth Certificate Record or Affirmative Action and are "MOST" relevant proving the outsourced, Kenyan obama usurper to the office of President...
-
The cost of an outsourced Barack Hussein Obama not releasing his hidden records and college transcripts are very clear. Therefore an usurper obama has calculated there are higher costs releasing any of his sealed records, destroying his career....

$5 Million dollars to a charity of obama's choice or a rape crisis center, if obama releases his sealed records..

Father of Slain SEAL: Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?
Woods made clear that he isn't "mad," but that he wants to the "truth" to be told because he feels " abandoned."
Woods says he was told by military officials that the military could have "come above [the area] and completely carpeted area," and therefore saved the officials in Benghazi, Libya. But that someone gave the command for the American military not to save the lives of the Americans under attack.
"When I heard, you know, that there's a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on and obviously someone had to say, don't go rescue them. Because every person in the military--their first response [would be], we're going to go rescue them. We need to find out who it was that gave that command--do not rescue them."
Military officials told Woods senior??? Unnamed military officials no doubt.

Listen up chump__Ty Woods was not active military, nor was Doherty or any of the others stationed at the, cough, annex. While Smith was officially employed by the State Dept. Woods, Doherty and the others weren't and at this time it's not known for sure exactly where their significant checks were coming from.

The US Military had no authority to respond to the Benghazi attack with force without the permission of the Libyan government.

The Obama administration now agrees with… JFK September, 18, 1963 speech about” Tax Cuts!!”
A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget. Every taxpayer and his family will have more money left over after taxes for a new car, a new home, new conveniences, education and investment. Every businessman can keep a higher percentage of his profits in his cash register or put it to work expanding or improving his business, and as the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues.”

When Sensata employees heard Romney on the campaign trail, they somehow got the idea that he opposes sending our jobs to China just because he says that he opposes sending our jobs to China. So the Sensata workers asked him to go to Freeport/Bainport to help them.

Has anyone heard if Romney has stepped in to help them yet?

I'm not in the mood for stupidity today Flack.

OBL was an exception to the rule__the drone strikes on Pakistan and Yemen have a blanket permission arrangement more than likely tied to some handsome aid packages.

If you choose to believe the crap these conspiracy freaks are selling, fine by me.

@sheryl: Maybe you should listen to Rices view on Benghazi.She is a republican and she feels the Obama administration made the correct decision.

@coral: You need to realize that Bushs 8 yrs of failure in the economy, thousands of dead american soldiers. When will people realize . you can't blame Obama for the circumstances he inherited.

For the Florida population: Obama PROVEN record shows that he for ALL americans.

Blah, blah, blah...doubt you even realize how embarrassing it is watching you act like you know what you're talking about. Listen up, chump. Do yourself a big favor and shut the f**k up.

Maybe one of these days we'll get to the truth, but it sure as shit won't come from you or the clusterf**k administration currently doing their Keystone Kops routine in the WH.

Oh, wash your socks. They stink.
