Who have I voted for? He's quickly approaching a Bush-like status, and at this point I predict he will surpass and be far worse. As if it makes any more sense to go to Afghanistan than Iraq. We need representatives who will actually represent taxpayers and bring back art in schools, community policing, and health care that will not earmark monies for doctors who will be affected by the Health Care Plan. Obama is lost and off track. He's giving in to politics bent on driving down the dollar and sending us back thirty to forty years in social reform.
