What do you think of both US presidental candidates?
Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? Why do you support one and not other?
I am European so there's allot of good being spread about Obama but never heard of Mitt Romney. I was wondering if someone can provide more information regarding both candidates and their strategies and plans for the US.
Voting has always been an issue to me, because I'm very conservative on some topics and very liberal on others. So what it's always come down to is "pick your battles"-- that is, focus on what I consider the MOST important. In the 2012 election, it's the military involvement in the Middle East.
First, Obama was not honest in the past about complete troop withdrawal;
second, what was it LBJ said about a president who can't end a war in his term shouldn't be given another chance;
However, Romney has not even taken a solid stand.
My daughter, and everyone else in the military, deserve better than turning the Middle East into a new version of Vietnam.
US national politics is in the throes of democratic devolution. One of the two major parties represents the dependents, the other the earners. Half of Americans no longer pay federal income taxes so have no skin in the game and are interested in little but keeping the gravy train rolling. The other half are sick of supporting them, with not yet quite having lost faith in the nation, still trying to find a way to restore stability politically, without revolt. Obama flawed as he is represents the takers, Romney flawed as he is the earners. The other issues touted as of concern are fog intended to conceal that one, great, divisive struggle.

The man is truly embarrassing,he is incapable of answering a single question on any topic because of the fear of the extreme right which makes him give nonsensical answers and look like a mumbling fool when asked even the simplest of questions.

Mitt Romney Has a 20 Point Lead in South Carolina. Is the GOPNomination Over? I thought that Romney would take New Hampshire, then lose some southern states, and leave the door open for someone else to come from behind. But it's now looking like Romney will roll to a GOP...

What do you think about Mitt Romney being the first president in U.S. History to have millions stashed in offshore Tax Havens. You know I saw this tonight and it really bothers me that we keep letting people like this run for the US President. I'll tell you right up front that I don't support the...
