I voted for Obama the first time and I'm not a Muslim, Communist, Socialist, Hugo Chavez supporter. Nor am I expecting a free ride from the government. I haven't decided who to vote for in 2012 but at this point, I am slightly leaning towards Obama again. So what does that make me? African American? College Student? A woman? Dumb? Naive?

and my bet is: many first time voters in that poll will not even vote. 2008 was an unusual year for young voters. The 20 something turnout was unusually high.

Yeah, Americans like me who thought he would possibly be a centrist without the Rev Wrights, Van Jones or others in his background! We are finding out he is spending more money than Bush, same military presence in the middle East as Bush, Kids still dieing there as Bush. I'll give him the Bin Laden capture and he hasn't calapsed our ecomomy. He also presents very well unless he is off the Teleprompter.

There could be a worse candidate on the Republican side, but a second term Obama would need to be balanced out with a Republican house and Senate. We had that during the Clinton Administration and things worked out quite well!

He and other politicians are allways saying we need change. We don't need change we need what has been proven to work in the past!
