I have two sons of adult age. Neither voted for Obama before - nor will in the future. Nor will my two teenage grandsons (one voting for the very first time this year).

Obama could have been a better president. He wants his agenda not the peoples.. young people are figuring this out. Right now we need a president to help the country recover. His policies have created alot of hesitation and fear in many people as to what he wants to do. Cap and trade , then healthcare which they never read, just passed it,and a first, mandating that all people will have to buy healthcare .

We cannot have faith in a president who wants his ideas in motion without thought of how it hinders creation of jobs which we need desperately.

2012 will be the first time I will be eligible to vote. I may or may not be voting for Obama, but Ron Paul has me won so far.

You never know. No, really...you don't. There are lot's of ways of showing yoru disapproval but telling us who your think other people will/won't ever vote for is stupid. They might have already and you will still never know.

Maybe they will and maybe they won't. We don't even know who the candidates are yet so it's still a little early to be deciding on something that will happen 2 years from now.

Nah - I know. My two adult kids dislike Obama (one is in the military) more than you can imagine.

My grandson tells me (and has shown me) his disdain for Obama as well. My grandson voted early in NV and voted (according to him) against Reid.

In the primary? At this point, I am not sure he will even be nominated.

You can't vote against someone.

As much as I normally disagree with Ceece, he/she has a point. It all depends on the situation really. It's probably true they didn't vote for Obama, but not necessarily the case. Sort of the same way as a daughter says with a twinkle in her eye to her pops that she's still a virgin or that she hasn't bedded someone of a different race (assuming the father disapproves of either)

With that kind of propaganda reining down, I imagine not.
"Kids like this"? Care to elaborate on what "this" is?
