Barack Obama, our next President

I voted for Barack Obama in 2008. To understand why I’m switching, it helps to understand why I backed him four years ago. I am a Democrat, but vote as an independent. I see people, not parties, so Obama’s label played no role.
My choice involved a simple calculation. Would John McCain or Obama be more likely to forge a consensus on big issues? America was dangerously polarized, and unable to act in ways that even 60 percent of the public could support. History shows that paralysis leads to disaster.
The war on terror was falling out of favor, despite the continuing threat. Good ideas were getting thrown out with the bad and Republicans had squandered the chance to govern.
When the financial crisis hit, McCain stumbled. He wanted to postpone a debate and rushed back to Washington — but had nothing to say or do. Obama kept silent and followed the lead of congressional Democrats. While not exactly great statesmanship, he at least looked steady.
McCain, a genuine American hero, often revealed his maverick streak, his choice of Sarah Palin being Exhibit A. Despite doubts about her readiness, I found myself defending her against the vicious attacks from the left, especially by women.
McCain was my real problem. Mavericks make good whistleblowers and lousy CEOs. Upsetting the apple cart is not a qualification for the Oval Office.
Obama’s soaring rhetoric enticed me at first, and I got a jolt of Messiah Alert when he said his rise marked the moment “when the planet began to heal,” but I still thought he was better than McCain.
Where he totally fooled me was his claim to be a pragmatist, not an ideologue. He spoke of uniting the country and I believed he was capable and sincere. That he won 70 million votes and more than two-thirds of the Electoral College spoke to his appeal.
He failed as president because he is incompetent, dishonest and not interested in the actual work of governing. His statist policies helped consign millions of Americans to a lower standard of living and his odious class warfare further divided the nation. He had no intention of uniting the country — it was his Big Lie.
I don’t hate him. But I sure as hell don’t trust him.
As for the desperate charge that opposition to Obama makes me a racist, let me note that he was black when I voted for him.
Which brings us to Romney. A year ago, I thought he might be acceptable, maybe the only one in the GOP field. Now I see him as much more than acceptable.
During the long slog, Romney revealed qualities that could make him a very good president. There is not a hint of scandal in his life or career, and his economic policies could spark real growth in jobs, not in food stamps.
He keenly recognizes the danger of the growing debt. With Paul Ryan, he chose a youthful, smart No. 2 who possesses deep knowledge of the budget mess and yet an optimistic view of America’s future.
On the foreign stage, Romney is a novice, but his instincts about American power are right and his remarks in the last debate about Obama’s apology tour were a defining difference. It is impossible to imagine Romney going abroad to criticize his country, or lying about the murder of an ambassador. The challenger is right when he says Obama has made the nation less safe.
Romney is no “movement conservative,” but is moderate and prudent in the everyday ways of most Americans. As he proved in Massachusetts, he can work with Democrats to get things done.
As for being a Mormon, to hold that against Romney is pure bigotry. His election would knock down one more barrier to equality of opportunity.
Finally, there is temperament. Romney’s firm, steady demeanor during Obama’s rancid attempts at character assassination demonstrates the presidential character lacking in the incumbent.
That’s the change I want for my country.

You answering them only makes her appear weak.

Or inadequate.

You coming to her aid or rescue actually tells more about you than her.

Obama in 4 years has increased spending ONLY 1.7%. ALL the rest has been caused by budget spending of the Bush years. No Budget has been passed to correct any of it because the Repubs keep adding amendments that are too stupid to be voted on.
The Bowles/Simpson Plan would have been great. But there was someone on the committee that voted against it. That vote prevented it from coming to a vote on the House floor. Wonder who that Dumbass could have been that stopped the BEST plan there has been to get America out of this mess. Oh, I know. It was PAUL RYAN that voted to stop a vote on it in the full House.
You Repubs are such hypocrites.

And please as a Republican do not claim to give a sh!t about the poor now.
"Obama is killing terrorists with those drones"

My, my, my, what can the Nobel Committee be thinking?

"Nobel Committee Asks Obama “Nicely” To Return Peace Prize?

"Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, said today that President Obama “really ought to consider” returning his Nobel Peace Prize Medal immediately, including the “really nice” case it came in....

Jagland, flanked by the other four members of the Committee, said they’d never before asked for the return of a Peace Prize,“even from a damnable war-criminal like Kissinger,” but that the 10% drawdown in US troops in Afghanistan the President announced last week capped a period of “non-Peace-Prize-winner-type behavior” in 2011.“Guantanamo’s still open. There's bombing Libya. There's blowing bin Laden away rather than putting him on trial. Now a few US troops go home, but the US will be occupying Afghanistan until 2014 and beyond. Don’t even get me started on Yemen!”...

The chairman said the committee weren’t “going to be pills” about getting the Prize back because they still “basically really liked” Mr. Obama and that sending it back in a plain package by regular mail would fine if it would save him the embarrassment of a public return....

The White House had no comment. It later announced an aggressive new covert CIA initiative to identify and apprehend Al Qaeda operatives in Scandinavia."

FauxNews has decided to run block for Mitt in the last days before election. Instead of any coverage on Mitt or that of Obama. They have done NOTHING but 24/7 coverage of Benghazi. Lies from them are being told each hour. Where were ALL you hypocritical bastards when Bush got 4000 American troops killed looking for WMDs that were never there?

With Sandy getting ready to hit the east coast instead of asking Mitt what he would do they cover something else due to this FACT.
The Romney campaign said early Monday morning that Romney stood behind a statement first made during a 2011 Republican debate, in which Romney said that the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be disbanded, and its powers either privatized or given to the states.

Obama's plan (Porkulus) was based on hiring more government employees and green energy boondoggles, both losing strategies.....

the economy sucks because there is no consumer demand....

most people, myself included, bought everything that they needed....so don't blame us for your failures....

Obama needs to re-write his economic comic book....
