    I can't think of any positive reasons to do so.

    I agree with BizGenGirl. There's no positive reason to vote for Obama. Unless, of course, you hate the U.S. Constitution as much as he does.

    I won't be voting for Obama.

    Because Mr. Romney's economic, social and technological policies will be bad for the country.

    --It is not possible, most economists agree, for America to cut its way to prosperity.  Yet Mr. Romney proposes to balance the budget, increase military spending, and cut taxes.  Even making a start on this agenda would gut the government and deliver a body blow to the economy.

    --His cozying up to extreme social conservatives, if sincere and translated into policy, is a sure-fire recipe for increased social unrest.

    --His adoption of the anti-science agenda of the Tea Party and their sympathizers (and Big Energy sponsors!) would mean a further degradation of America's response to the climate change problem--and of her ability even to know what is going on; the conservative Republicans in the House now have already voted on several occasions to defund basic monitoring capabilities.  This would be an extremely long-lived and toxic legacy--one our kids and grandkids would deeply rue.

    Isn't it ironic that most of the "replies" herein will be largely based on this criterion?:

    "I voted for that candidate who I believed was the least offensive...."

    Because he has dug us out of a huge hole created by deregulation, reducing taxes and increasing spending on medicare and two wars creating a four trillion dollar deficit.  Romney would endorse the policies that got us in the hole.

    The question is -- what has Obama accomplished to earn another term? The answer is nothing positive, unless one considers Obama's Marxist anti-American, anti-capitalist, anti-business, anti-constitution agenda as being beneficial to America's future.

    Obama's record is one of failure in achievements that would strengthen America economically or politically. However, one could view Obama's accomplishments as positive if the criteria for success is predicated on the premise that destroying America is necessary to save America.

    The bottom line is that there is no logical or actual benefit to America to vote for Obama again, however there are absolute reasons as to why another term for Obama would result in America's demise.

      Bolderdash, LDM! Obama has been tested and Romney can't even run a a campaign, let alone a a country  in crisis.  All of your labels are just specious and biased opinions—not even close to fact.

      So you admit after nearly 4 years the country is STILL in "CRISIS". What your claiming then is Obama can run a great campaign but is an impotent leader. And the "labels" are merely facts that you wish to remain blind to or worse - agree with.

      Romney ran an extremely successful corporation and was a governor.  What private sector job has the President ever had???  He is Jimmy Carter x 2.

    I cannot think of any reason to vote for Obama. This will probably be voted down because liberals do not let other people have opinions. I can only think of reasons NOT to vote for him.
    By the way, I am not conservative. I am a thinking person that has not figured out how spending more money than we have on making people dependant is going to do any good for anyone.
