    I wouldn't.  Do you have a better question?

    Well, Newton was found to be guilty of ethics and criminal violations. Rick S is more a theologist than I am comfortable with, Mitt can't seem to make his mind up about what is right and what is wrong. On the other hand Mr. President seems to be trying to actually help.  The economy was in the tank before he even walked in the front door to the White House, jobs were already going overseas, Social Security had already been stolen to balance previous budgets by previous presidents, and wars were already costing us trillions of dollars looking for some WMD that didn't exist. Now he has proprosed ways to bring jobs back to America, he is trying to wind down the wars that the previous president started without even declaring war, Social Security is being reworked, although not repaid the way it should have been. And the economy isn't quite as bad as it could have gotten if he hadn't done some of the things he did.  So while I may not give him straight A's as president, he sure isn't a failure either. He listens, he discusses, he offers solutions ( we may not always agree they are the best ones) but I believe he is trying and making steps in the right direction.  So, to me, he is the best choice.

    I wouldn't vote for Obama. He's shown he can't keep his spine straight against the adversity that pollutes the white house. He gave it a good run, now it's time for someone else to have a turn.

    I don't vote--my silent vote of "no confidence".

    Because he's better than the alternatives. He strikes me as a pragmatic politician (for better and for worse). The Republican alternatives seem too much like narrow-minded ideologues. (With the exception of Romney, who will say whatever he thinks will gain him the nomination.)

    Totally on the fence because in one way it seems as though he had been set up for failure since day one. Cleaning up the mess that bush made is no easy task but when attempting to make changes as he had tried to do with nothing but backlash from Congress and others doesn't make it any easier.  On the other hand I am not pleased how he is handling this Iran problem.  A very potential threat to many but yet he is not being tough enough to stand up against them. He is appearing to be weak and timid right now which I don't like.

    I honestly wouldn't pick Obama if it was between him and George Bush. So what's that tell you? He has done nothing but lie and make statements he couldn't stick to. He's okay with gay marriage and abortion, talks in riddles, he's talked the holy bible down in the past... I honestly don't like what he stands for. He's not my cup of tea.

    I'd like to add that many people are going to vote for him simply because "he got Bin Laden"... Which I still believe TO THIS DAY that, that man has been dead. You mean to tell me one man hid from the US government!? for 10 years!? I think not... No other country has the sick technology we do. The major governments are "playing God" which I don't like. ( All seeing, all knowing) But I'm just rambling now.

    IMO...Obama has done "well enough" and worked hard enough, thus far...considering the Crap that "W" & The Great Duck Hunter dumped on him.  He sent the Navy Seals in to get the Arab Bastard, & he uses common sense and fairness in decisions.   I feel he deserves another term, to do more and take us further and finish what he has started.  If these don't seem like valid or approriate "reasons" why I would vote for Obama, it's only because whoever is reading this, is a right wing elitist or racist, who doesn't LIKE him.
    However, far more importantly, for me.....what's the alternative?   "Bless me Father for I have sinned, Santorum?"    "Stay right here, Baby, til I divorce wife #3, Gingrich".......or "I'm a rich, successful & pretty Mormon boy, Romney."  ???  Not on your life!!!   Ron Paul?  I MIGHT consider him, but he's not even really in the running.

    Because I was offered the gift of not living here while he was in office. That is one of the few reasons why I would vote for him. So I wouldn't be around to see the changes. I'm already upset about the health bill changes with pregnancy's. I don't want to be a mother when that bill comes to effect.

    Barack is one heck of a basketball player. His smile lights up a room and his charisma is contagious. Have you heard him sing along with Al Green and BB King? I would so buy his CD. He's loved worldwide. Michelle is my inspiration for being fit and fantastic. Her Let's Move campaign is helping reduce obesity in our overweight, unhealthy and FAT country. On a final note BO is the first president I ever voted for and I'll be front and center in November to vote and I'll have my posse with me. Great question!
