Title: Barack... go for it!
Post by: Koen on 6 November 2012, 21:39:08
no, I'm not supposed to be neutral so my vote goes to Barack...

one of the main reasons is when I see Romney I think of Bush Jr.

I can't combine Romney with intelligence and leadership...

I can't comment much on national US issues but for international points I hope Obama gets re-elected

Does it matter who wins?

The choice appears to be a nice guy that is paralysed by a need to not upset anyone and therefore does nothing and a dodgy guy who wont do anything because he believes in the status quo.

*1st of all he had a Bush heritage, something that took 8 years (or longer if you count Sr. time) to destroy takes even longer to restore
*he took a very hard task to start Obama care,certainly not the easiest path to take, it takes guts to start this up
*he's intelligent (compared with Bush Jr. you need a new word...)
*he had the balls to even talk about closing Guantanamo...

when former presidents were chose you saw footage of celebrating campaign members, now I saw many videos of celebrating people on the streets, black and white, young and old...

and I was very concerned about the election of Romney.... I saw lots of dollars but no intelligence, personality or character...

Bush's deficits averaged 291 billion USD/year, adjusted for inflation.
Obama's deficits have averaged 1,323.61 Billion USD/year adjusted for inflation.
Obama's deficits are 4.5 times the size of Bush's.

Of course, the Left blames George Bush for this but the deficits are caused by too much current spending, none of which was initiated by President Bush.
