Obama Supporters 5 Stages of Grief
Denial/Evasion - Obama is doing a great job! I'm very happy with him. Nothing is wrong, politics is always like this.
Anger/blaming - You're criticizing Obama because he's black! You racist! Bush is to blame! Republicans block everything Obama tries to do.
Bargaining/postponing - If we just give him more time, then he'll start doing a good job. It takes time to clean up the mess he inherited.
Depression/disconnecting - I give up on Obama. I'm voting for Ron Paul.
Acceptance - Oh well, Obama is still better than Romney. A Democrat is better than any Republican. Remember how good FDR and Clinton were?

5 Stages of Accepting Romney As a Candidate:
1. Holy sh*t; is this really the best we can do?
2. Fewer people are laughing out loud than with
Michelle, Herman, Rick or Newt.
3. Statistically, rich old white guys win a lot.
4. He's pliant as hell; it may be possible to make
this android seem human.
5. Maybe his magic mormon underwear really is magic!

Let's get the facts straight on Mormonism: There are only 3 churches in America with more members (Roman Catholic, Southern Baptist, and United Methodist). If we question whether a Mormon should be president, we never allow a Lutheran, Presbyterian, Assembly of God, or Episcopalian to be president, since those churches are all smaller, right? Mormons believe in Jesus Christ, the Bible, being faithful to ONE spouse (no, they don't practice polygamy), charity, honesty, obeying the law, not swearing, not using addictive substances (alcohol, tobacco, coffee, etc), and are generally some of the most wholesome members of society. Mormons have served as upstanding governors, senators, and cabinet members for nearly 200 years. I think Romney being a Mormon is a reason TO vote for him, not to vote AGAINST him. The fact that he adheres to a religion with such high standards is very commendable! Ask almost anyone what religion (if any) the other presidential candidates belong to and no one knows.

Most people are grossly and largely misinformed about Mormonism, and his campaign is doing a great job about bringing publicity to the church and its reputation for family values and morals.
He also never cheated on his wife! ;)

Romney is by far the best qualified candidate. I am unimpressed with fluff. I want a president who understands the economy, the world situation, the wars we are fighting.
Romney was the first Republican governor of Massachusetts. I lived in New Hampshire during his term of office. He constantly stood up for conservative principles in the most liberal state in the union. The state was billions of dollars in the red. Working with the 85% Democrat state legislature, Romney was able to achieve what had not happened in many years in Mass. He vetoed over 700 liberal bills, and was able to turn that deficit into rainy-day surplus.
He was asked to rescue the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2000. He received a salary of $1.00 for taking it from the brink of bankruptcy to financial strength. He was recognized and honored nationally for his unselfish act.
He understands how business works, and is committed to getting government out of business so that Americans can get back to work. Obama's policies are amateurish at best. They are destructive at worst.
Unfortunately, Romney appears to be unable to emotionally connect with people who are struggling financially. On camera he is uncomfortable, but those who know him personally know that he is a kind, compassionate person who is friendly and likeable.
His actions over the years, not his claims or ads, show the kind of person he is. I think he would be a great president, unlike the other candidates.

A vote for Romney is a vote for the salvation of the USA.
A vote for Obama is a vote for the destruction of the USA.
NO SPIN JUST TRUTH!

If you have not bothered to keep yourself informed and think for yourself, you should not vote. Uneducated, uninformed and voting voids the importance of voting. It's too bad that people don't think or reason. They are like sheep that follows a wolf instead of a Shepherd. It is so naive to believe that many running for the esteemed government care about anything but to tell you what you want to hear. People will pay dearly and for generations for these passing goodies that will not last for long.
Then the bells will toll and we will be like the other European countries that are all in rebellion with the government and each other.
Then again, we have Occupy Wall Street. People are acting sub human and they don't even know what they are disgracing themselves about. I guess these will be the future presidents. Obama brought in the hippie gangs he hung with throughout his youth.

Look at Romney's track record. The guy is smart.
He saved the Salt Lake City Olympics, when it was $400 million behind, and brought in a $100 million profit, AFTER the $300 million spend on security. In fact, this was the first major event after 9-11, so security had to be tight, and it was.
He also saved the Mass. budget. Each year he was governor the budget was balanced, and he even brought a surplus to the state.
He is also married to his wife for over 25 years.

This is hysterical; Romney's campaign is "doing a great job about bringing publicity to the church"? He never, ever mentions his religion, for good reason. Televangelists like Rick Warren are speaking out about mormon beliefs, like not believing in the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. You think evangelicals don't care about that? Really? And he "saved" the Massachusetts budget by increasing fees ,$750 billion dollars worth, payable every year. At the end of his term, Massachusetts lead the nation in joblessness. Way to go! My favorite: "Obama brought in the hippie gangs he hung with in his youth". What the hell? If old Thelma is dumb enough to say that, she's probably dumb enough to believe it. Black kids always belong to gangs, right Thelma? If there was an IQ test for voters, none of you would make it into a voting booth.

Why do most of your posts have racial overtones?
This election isn't about white or black, although Obama would probably want that, it's about choosing the best for all American's rather than a few special interest groups.
It isn't always about being racist when someone disagrees with Obama. It's like saying all black people are lazy and won't work and I know that isn't the true.
You are not a "RACIST" if you disagree with the present Administration and Obamas policies.

Why do most of your post have a racial overtones?
It's okay if you don't agree with the way this country is being managed. It's our right to voice our opinion about issues that effect us.
Just because you do not agree with President Obama and his Administration, which are mostly radicals, doesn't mean that you are a "Racist". Don't fall into that trap, where you will feel your being boxed into a group of haters.
Yor are not Racist if you disagree with Obama!

For a president who campaigned endlessly on the "eight years of failed Bush policies," Obama has not only followed Bush's policies but expanded on them.
When it comes to restrictions of personal liberties and pissing on the Constitution, Obama's open killing of American citizens without indictment or trial makes Bush2 look like a pantywaist.
- Bush increased government spending. Obama has been increasing government spending.
- Bush adopted Keynesian “stimulus” policies. Obama adopted Keynesian “stimulus” policies.
- Bush bailed out politically connected companies. Obama has been bailing out politically connected companies.
- Bush supported the Fed’s easy-money policy. Obama has been supporting the Fed’s easy-money policy.
- Bush created a new healthcare entitlement. Obama created a new healthcare entitlement.
- Bush imposed costly new regulations on the financial sector. Obama imposed costly new regulations on the financial sector.
All you Democrat partiers who hated Bush for the things he did should rightfully hate Obama for doing the same things. Hope and change my ass.

"If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition."
- Obama, discussing the economy, 2/1/2009
Now he's saying he'll need four more years to do the job.
Sorry, Barry, we're holding you to your one-term deadline. You're out.
We're sick of the blame game. That argument might hold water if you weren't doing the same things, and worse, that the Bush administration did.
#14 Jun 13, 2012
then why dont he have more support on these republican issues? if he is a socialist he is a lousy one.
#15 Jun 13, 2012
For sheer idiocy, you just can't beat this forum. Love the way posters keep declaring that people support Obama because they don't know anything - then they reveal that all they know is the poisonous crap from the web and hate radio. Long lists of poisonous crap, easily disproved. LOL - one of the lists even included the old nugget "Obama supports sex education for kindergartners", rated "pants on fire" by FactCheck. Kindergarten-level sex ed is how to protect yourself against predators. Yell! Run away! Also handy when it comes to protecting yourself against right-wing nuts.
#16 Jun 13, 2012
What makes you think they're republican issues? Obscene government spending is inherent in both parties.
You're right though, Obama is lousy.
Nothing like missing the point. People on here cry all day about Bush's actions, but refuse to admit Obama is walking in Bush's boots. Truth is..........
#17 Jun 13, 2012
Disprove the points in Post 12, brainiac.
#18 Jun 13, 2012
Hey DemsRule 12,
You honestly seem like a nice enough guy & you come across as fairly educated individual. What about the current Democratic Party makes you want to vote Democrat?(no smart as* remarks & Just an honest answer)(Forget Obama for a moment)
#19 Jun 13, 2012
maybe its because he is doing everything john boehner and the republicans want. which is pretty much not to move forward.
#20 Jun 13, 2012
Okay. The system is rigged to benefit the wealthy, and republican politicians are dedicated to keeping it that way. Income inequity is ridiculous; A Walmart CEO earns as much in an hour as an average employee earns in a year. The average tax bill for corporations last year, with loopholes and shelters, was about 12%. Retirees pay more for health care than anything else, and all of us pay more for health care than anyone else on the planet, with outcomes that are disgraceful. Most of our bankruptcies are due to health care costs. Yet when the president attempts to address health care, he's mocked and demonized. In fact, the president is mocked and demonized over pretty much everything, every day. The list of good reasons to vote Democratic is endless. The republican party is only about two things: keeping taxes low for the wealthy and getting rid of all regulations so business can do as it pleases, regardless of dire consequences, like the mortgage crisis and poisoned air and water. Republicans lawmakers haven't earned their pay in years; they just obstruct and insult, hoping our situation is bad enough to make voters want to change horses in 2012. Unforgivable, un-American, unreasonable - and unpopular. They don't stand for anything, except corporations and the wealthy. And wingnut crazies who call themselves names like "The Truth" are always republicans, that's annoying as hell.
