Romney has no vision that doesn't involve him saying what the most popular thing to say at the the time happens to be.

His opinion can be bought and paid for. Newsflash for to Romney/Ryan and all their supporters:

America is a country, not a company to be played like Monopoly.

While I do admire Romney's tenacity and effort he put forth, I don't think it's going to be good enough to oust President Obama.

Who knows, I could be wrong, but signs point to another 4 years of a Democratic President.

Also, Obama has done good for me thus far. No reason to change when I've been benefited.

If you've been screwed over by Obama, then vote against him. It's that simple.

By that logic, Obama shouldn't get a single vote. He's managed to screw over the entire population of the U.S. by passing Obamacare, but nobody that hasn't read it can see how bad the screwing is. Once it actually takes effect, I expect to see about 80% of Americans scratching their heads and wondering what the hell hit them.

I'll agree. I float more liberal, but Obamacare isn't that great. I don't think people should be forced to spend oney on healthcare if they don't want to.

With that being said, that isn't just reason to vote for Romney...Romney just flip flops on issues too much and it worries me if he is that confused when important decisions will be made.

I think however, no matter who is president, the economy will stabilize and get better in the next 4 years.

Well, by that logic, Obama would fetch 20% of the vote.

Your opinion is no better than mine. The ACA has already saved my family and I money. I have no reason to hate it, or the people who authored it.

Oh yes - like the "hope and change" we had during the first two years of the Obama Administration - when the president and Democrat Congress doubled the debt, destroyed our credit rating, increased unemployment, and eroded our prestige in the world.

Yes - lets have four more years of that.

The only thing that kept us from a total meltdown is a Republican controlled House.

Thank goodness for the elections of 2010!

People opposed to PPACA do not hate anybody who authored the bill.

Do you not understand that it is possible to oppose a bill without "hating" the people who introduced or voted for it?

If not - no wonder you are deluded by that montrosity of a law.
