If you going to be true within your own self, and from the soul. Hek no. These 4 years have been so very hard on many good hard working Americans.

Who for the first time in their life, found themselves, without a job, and some also lost their homes. More people who never ever dreamnt that Obama's Change, would be that of going on welfare. Due to their lost jobs, and could not find another one.

Many distressed homeowners who lost their homes, due to a lost job. , Thus the reason for so many bank onwed properties.

I do personally know college grads, who graduated from college, still have loans to pay off, but no decent paying job.

Truthfully these past 4 years, have been hard on a lot of Americans, who found themselves for the first time in their lives, on welfare and food stamps.

People i know who own small business, cannot wait for Obama to go, regulations and all the crap are killing them.

And he is a bully, says the meanest cruelest things and knows what he says, does not care. Infact give obama his wish, he can go hang out with Jay -Z And Beyonce, for good.

Silly premise.

If we were going to have four more years like the last four years, the stock market would already be in free fall, houses would be imploding by another third in value, two wars would be going full tilt, Wall Street swindlers would be running circles ****ting themselves, and we would be talking about a massive bail out/stimulus. Since that is not happening, I think we will see the economy keep strengthening, unemployment dropping, the deficit falling, and the country getting on the right track. Obama inherited a horrible, horrible crisis and he righted the ship. It is damn impressive, but he has received no credit or support from the far right. Well, now all those fine Tea Party folks can worry about being one term wonders. And from what I have seen, that would not bother me a bit.

I'll second that. The last four years have been pretty good for my family. The company we work for has been gradually adding jobs; regular cost of living raises (even if they are not huge) and the 401Ks have certainly bounced back in a big way. Just got back from a trip to North Carolina and Tennessee and it is not all gloom and doom everywhere. Once you get away from the TV/radio/internet blather, while the situation in the country may not be ideal, it is not the end of the world as we know it.

But it could be a lot better if everyone in Washington would get away from this partisan bickering and start working together for the good of everyone, and not just the ones in their party that make the most noise.

If Obama gets back in we will have the last 4 years plus an investigation on Benghazi---they can't let 4 dead Americans just drop without any info. If an impeachment goes through then we will have President Bidden. I guess the Dems will love that.

We will have the last 4 years on steroids. GAG

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.
Sure. You don't like it. I have no grounds to argue against you.

I, personally, have benefited from it. I'm sure many people around the country have, as well.

Arguing opinion is fruitless, anyway.

When you enter the polls tomorrow - ask yourself this question - "do you want four more years like the last four years"?

If the answer is NO - then do the right thing.

Vote for and believe in America.

Romney will give us more wars, he's pretty eager to bomb Iran, then probably a few more. How is that shrinking govt or saving us from the #1 threat, currency devaluation from debt & deficit spending? If the war is big enough, there could be a draft. Do you know anyone of draftable age that you care about? Of course wars provide employment, but short-term with many dead.

Peace is cheaper-elect peace says Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson. He used to be in Rep party, but he didn't want wars badly enough & thought we should get back all of our Constitutional freedoms. He says Iran really isn't a threat at this time & favors diplomacy & sanctions over bombing.

Gary has a video: Soon, many small children will die... I'm the only candidate (of the top 3) that doesn't want to bomb Iran." The US is starting to use drones for wars & soon to spy on us. They're unmanned, like those radio-controlled toys. Many will miss the intended targets.

The US will have hundreds of millions madder at us if Romney gets all the wars he wants. That will not make us safer! Many defense contractors sell to both sides.

What kind of change are you looking for? We need to vote better people into Congress, also. Suspect most Americans are so focused on presidency, they won't even study candidates for Congress or state.
I use the site votesmart dot org to see who I prefer. Also the survey ISideWith dot com/ Best wishes.

No, I want Congress to work with President Obama to solve our problems in the next 4 years.
I wanted Obama to stop spending money on shovel ready, green ... now nonexistent jobs.

The brazen fallacy of your whole post is that it would have somehow been tremendously better with someone like Romney at the helm. This meltdown was arguably a larger credit meltdown than the Great Depression itself, gigantic in fact, but handle much more aggressively. Keynesian spending from Bush/Obama exploded the deficit, but it put out the house fire. Still, the losses in home values (from false, inflated highs), and the economic fallout would have taken years to play out regardless, and there is not quick fix. You can probably credit the semistability we are enjoying to the bailout (compare it with Europe, where austerity has been used more widely), but claiming Obama is guilty by anything other than association is a a world class snow job. He was dealt a hell of a hand, and did not do too badly.

Bottomline, they righted the boat, even though we took on plenty of water. Things will continue to improve, and unless someone decides to look the other way and let Wall Street cook up some more poision, it will keep getting better. I don't buy the crap about regulations, that is just another snowjob. Obama has not done much at all.
