Sad, Hussein Obama will send you a thank you card....I am not a Romney fan either but he is better then Hussein.

So you do not feel that people should be able to vote their conscience? And who is this Hussein guy?

No ****. To equalize the extreme far right that the republican party has swung, we just about need to run a full our communist.

You think Romney is extremely far right? I wish.

Romney has the potential to be anything. I'm not sure if he has thoughts of his own.

As there are no perfect candidates, or perfect people for that matter, I will once again vote for who I think will be the the best of the two for the future of the country.

I have seen what supply side economics and financial deregulation did to our country so choose not to be bitten by that same dog again, which is what Romney promises.

Is that just a longwinded way of saying you are going to vote for Obama?

wrong

Here will be the leading contenders if Obumble is reelected

1) Robert Portman
2) Chris Christie
3) Mitch Daniels
4) Marco Rubio
5) Bobbi Jindahl
6) Nikki Haley

my opinion :

1. not much name recognition. still, there's plenty of time for that to change.
2. will probably run. he will score some points in the "straight talker" category. i don't see him beating Ryan in the primary.
3. too vulnerable. under his watch, Indiana misplaced more than half a billion dollars. education was cut to make up for the money that the state didn't even know was there. that's a big deal.
4. another possibility; it's likely he'll be Romney's VP pick.
5. possibly, but his state of the union response was weak.
6. likely to be a contender.

It is to explain why I would vote for someone as conservative as the president over Romney.

Out of curiosity, have you ever voted for a conservative for president?

Yes, the last one was in 2008. We have never had a liberal president. We only get to choose between the least conservative and the most conservative. Maybe someday we will have a viable liberal candidate, but it hasn't happened yet!

You voted McCain over Obama? Interesting. If you think we have never had a liberal president and hope for one, nothing personal, but I hope your wish never comes true.

that is more a reflection on how truly far left wing you are compared to mainstream America then a fair assessment of american political candidates

You said maybe someday we would have a liberal candidate. Based on your statement, it seems that if we did (in your opinion) they would get your vote. Is that not true?

Yes, if we ever have a viable liberal candidate I would vote for him or her, but I never said I voted for McCain as you stated.

I haven't decided who I'm going to write in this time, and probably won't until I enter the booth.

I realize voting is a complete farce, but I like to practice voting just in case it ever does become meaningful and relevant. Stranger things have happened, after all.

Many times I posted I would not vote Republican. Until President Obama totally corrupted the criminal justice system, due process of law and the concept of innocent until proven guilty in his grotesque racist statement that Martin looked like he could be his son - using Zimmerman as his political whipping boy, to distract from the media talking about ObamaCare and to try to get African-Americans to flock to the polls again - though Obama serves corporate America and has done nothing for the poor or for the African American community.

I will vote for Romney. Obama is fundamentally corrupt in the most core ways. Besides, neither I, my children, and many of the people of my life and heart don't look like we could be related to Obama. And that is what counts according to him. I also will vote Republican for Congress.

Zimmerman-Martin made you change your mind on how you'd vote?

Wow...59% to 40% Ubama. Can't believe this many people would actually consider voting for him again. I try to look at the big picture, not the little pieces and what I see is if you want bigger government, higher taxes, skyrocketing energy and food prices, continuing an atmosphere to discourage job growth, healthcare higher than before, out of control debt...then I guess Ubama is your guy.

I think he has been running far to the right. Where he stands, well hard to judge any more. His time in office he was not far to the right. Further, I did not say Romney, I said the republican party.
