The lesser of two evils. Romney has been caught in too many lies and would raise taxes on the working class to lower tax on the wealthy.
Oh, you are a dam lier yourself. When Obama took office gas was 2.80 down from the republican president where gas prices got to $5.00.
Of course the President does not control or profit from gas prices.
How can you vote to hurt the working class so the wealthy get more and we suffer more?
We can not stand another Bush style President

This is one small example of how Obama will seek to continue to move us forward, up and out of the chaos of the republicans mandates.
Fiscal Year{ FY } in politics is from October to September. Bush presented Obama with a 9% constricting economy. Bush received a 5.6 Trillion surplus to budget debt from Clinton. So lets take that and subtract what Bush debts were, that he handed over to Obama. Surplus of $5.6 Trillion plus all debts incurred since October 2008 to January 2009 and we come with a 5.6% reduction in debt to GDP. In 3.3 years Obama is at 15.1% to debt of GDP, from a 20.7% increase to debt by Bush and going rapidly down into the abyss.
Stimulus plan to revitalize the middle class produced a beneficial return on investment. We have seen an impressive recovery in the equity markets from Bush’s stock markets lost of 14 years of gains. Markets had retraced the lows back to 1996 in less than 17 months. Greatest lost ,in market value, in our Nations history. Obama’s actions helped restore equity markets post a gain of 105% through April of 2011. During Obama’s first 27 months in office.
Making up most of the losses with gains to the DOW of 17.2%, S&P 500 25.3% and the NASDAQ 31.7%. Compare this to say Reagan first 3.3 years in office Reagan’s gains to ; DOW 6.86%, S&P 500 6.16%, NASDAQ 7.02%. Obama has surpassed most of his predecessors, including Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan!
Stimulus also stopped the decline in corporate profits that started under George W. Bush. Stimulus helped produce an increase of 22% per year in the first two years.
Obama has had the slowest growth in spending of any President in the past 60 years: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...
Latest up date to Markets; The Fed pledged Thursday to buy $40 billion in mortgage-backed bonds every month from large banks and other dealers in an effort to help free up capital and spur lending. The move is also expected to help push down mortgage rates, already near record lows, to further stimulate the housing market. The central bank said it would continue buying until the unemployment rate, which stood at 8.1 percent in August, decreases significantly.
Wall Street continued to cheer the news. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which surged more than 206 points after the Fed announcement Thursday -- climbed another 53 points Friday to 13,593, its highest closing since December 2007. Global markets also reacted positively: the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong surged 2.9 percent, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index shot up 1.8 percent, and the British FTSE 100 rose more than 1.6 percent.

Dearest Polly; You’re a tad off on this fuel issue. Lets do a brief history. Bush took office gas at $1.74 oil at $16 per barrel.
Bush invades Iraq; Gas goes to $5 oil goes to $145 per barrel.
After election of 2008 Nov. Bush opens Flood gates on emergency National oil reserves. Price drops but only for temporary. National Oil Reserves closed their gates. Prices start to rise. Obama invest in more oil rigs to start drilling, Drilling for Natural Gas accelerates and Green energy. Mostly for R&D development. Which is exploding with new innovations as markets are being developed to consume them and reduce our need for oil and gas.
Presently we are at $3.70 for gas. Obama suggested we open the Emergency National Oil reserves which republicans immediately shot down. So here we are. Myself I’m in the process of getting my first Electric Vehicle and acquiring the solar panels to make the fuel. Savings in fuel alone will pay for panels and vehicle at no cost to me! Can I take another four years of OBAMA? You Betsa.. More if we could.

Little bit of research into history. Found a similar political movement that emulates our present day republicans. Smaller governments and deregulation.
Fragrance of criminals minds, they would appreciate less laws and social enforcement of those laws. Breeding corruption.
Imagine if Department Of Transportation decided to remove, all highway and byways signs. No divider lines, no stop signs, no red lights, no danger signs, no yield signs, no street signs, and so and so on. Just how long before do you think it would be before disaster struck our entire transportation systems. Now that is exactly what republicans did. Great Depression-1929 and Great Receesion-2008. Deregulated our financial infrastructure. Presently republicans are focused on continuing this deregulation chaos right up to the end of our USA. WHY???
Anarchist originated with France’s political theorist. Pierre-Joseph Proudhon [1809-65] Authored the book “What is Property” that property was theft. Gained acceptance in the USA with Prince Peter Kropotkin’s [1842-1921] book of 1896 {Anarchism; Its Philosophy and Ideal} Emulating similar symptoms of our right wing fanatics with assassinations and civil destruction of social infrastructures. Association with terrorist harmed their progress with the Chicago’s Haymaker Square tragedy and the various assassinations of the President of France, Prime Minister of Spain, Empress Elizabeth of Austria, King Umberto I of Italy and President William McKinley. Tainting the anarchism with the chaos of anarchy.
Plutocracy flourishes within the soils of Anarchist ideologies! All republicans from the dog catcher to the President seek to advance this sovereignty. That is from 1970. Eisenhower hinted for us to be ware of the Military Industrial Complex. Now here we are, republicans want to increase Pentagon budgets at the cost of the 47% of all Americans! Welfare to their large corporations and monopolies. Cut taxes to the owners of these institutions as well!

I love to see all of the lies being proven to be lies.
When Bush came to office there was a surplus in the budget and he ran this country in to the ground, now the democrats have to pull the country up, by undoing what the republicans did to us.
