Hi SoOr--

This probably belongs in the Politics forum but I'll answer here nevertheless: neither. I view Romney and Obama as two sides of the same coin. Romney in particular has played both sides of the fence with equal fervor during his 20-year history as a politician. And nobody has done more to destroy my generation's future earning power and ability to prosper than Obama's policies since 2009, during which income has dropped by at least 8% for under-30 workers. I'll probably vote for Ron Paul or some third party candidate with acceptable values.

I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but solely blaming him for reverberations of the biggest recession since the Great Depression is more than a little short-sighted. First, it came to a head 4-6 months before he was inaugurated and was known to be inevitable (all though not well advertised) long before then. This whole "new era" thing was 30 years in the making and started mainly with Reaganomics -- during his tenure and by the design of Reaganomics, the US went from being the world's largest creditor to being one of its biggest debtors.

Btw, your future earning power and ability to prosper is set by you, not the President.

With that, I'll be voting for Obamney.

Obama. Romney is far too extreme and out of touch. I don't blame any president for the state of the economy as it was set in motion a long time ago by many people. It is slowly improving and that's realistically as good as we can hope for. Obama is not perfect by any means, but he's far better than what the GOP has offered us. The party of Akin, Walker, Kasich, etc does not deserve to win.
