Obama is an utterly worthless leader
Affirmative, if he would've spent more time running this country and doing his job we might not be in the world of caca weare in.

This is one of the many events I would have never heard of had it not been for the OP.
Just another entry in the long list of Obama failures.

Did Romney bring up this fact in any of the debates?

No, what Obama has done is failed to turn the steady decline put in motion during the eight years of the era of the inept George Bush.

Failed, yes... the "Author" or creator of the fiasco we are struggling through now, no.

Like it or not, credit for getting this mess started still goes back to when the Republicans, and their leader George Bush, was in office.

It seems that Obama, like Jimmy Carter, had good intentions but the job may have been more than he could handle... the disaster created by George Bush and the Republicans was just too much for him. In my perspective Obama has done little to noting that those of us who voted for him were led to expect as we entered 2009.

Which is why I'm casting my lot with the third party this year, and voting for Gary Johnson for President... both Republican and Democrat have had their chances and failed.

Everything was fine until Obama wrecked the economy.

That's what John McCain said in 2008... and it cost him the election.

I have to agree on that... in my perspective Obama gas done little to noting that those of us who voted for him were led to expect as we entered 2009.

Obama does seem to me to be the same person he ever was, the person Mrs. Clinton tried to tell us was coming... the person who was basically a "community organizer", who usually voted "Present" rather than Yes or No... the person who might fumble if he gets that "call at 3am".

But yeah, I had some high expectations of what the next four years would be like back in 2009... and have seen virtually nothing from Obama, at least nothing I expected or felt we needed.

Will Obama win again? The race seems close, not just media manipulation but from a truly divided nation. As you know by now, my vote is going elsewhere, for whatever that's worth.

Last time I looked, though, the polls showed Romney with a slight lead... where he appears to be losing is in the Electorial College. The question now seems to be the same on as 2000... will the popular vote be honored, or, like the way George Bush came into office in that election, will the results of the Electorial College over ride the choice of the American voters?

Now that's where this gets interesting.

The US system uses the electoral college, love it or hate it, it's here to stay.
There are many great article explaining it and showing why it's used if you just seek the info.
Have a great day and don't get blown away by Sandy

Was the US credit rating really lowered twice for the first time ever under the Obama administration?

Yes, I am not lying.
