    Who should I vote for in the 2012 Presidential Election in November?  Obama or Romney?

    I  am an undecided voter.  Convince me for which man, Romney or Obama, I should vote?  Please explain why your choice of man is the proper choice for POTUS.

    Not a US citizen but from my point of view Romney is already an embarrassment and has offended a fair few of your allies? Better with the Devil you know unless the devil you don't falls out with the rest of the world.

    Then again as a British person inexplicably Obama apparently leans towards argentina over the falklands; though I don't think that is an 'official' stance. Doubt that would affect your decision though, just thought I'd balance that one for you wink

      This is GREAT!  It's critical for us to consider the view of our leaders from outside the US.  I often wondered if world view of Bush contributed to 9/11. Plus,  the first year in office is wasted breaking new people in. We don't have time for that!

      Well Bush was viewed as a complete joke over here; no offence intended, we wouldn't put up with leaders that socially inept.

      Obama is not an embarrassment, in fact I think most quite like him and Europeans are generally more liberal minded.

    what romney says he believes changes depending on who he's talking to. if you want someone you can trust, romney's not your guy.

      I believe you are thinking of Pres. Obama, not Mr. Romney.....the president is the man who does that.

      This answer and comment here provide the best example of how divisive the political opinion is and how the facts always seem to be debatable - how are facts debatable? Romney is a flip-flopper, while Obama is just a charmer - someone bring the snakes

    I speak as a christian and because of the democratic platform supporting same-sex marriage and abortion, the answer is clear.  Knowing what the Holy Bible says about matters such as these, I must vote the will of God.  The democratic convention should have nailed it down for christians.  If the platforms were the same; however, Romney makes the most sense on every issue and certainly knows business.  Obama has been given 4 years to do what he said would only take him 2 and yet begs for one more chance.  He has nothing new to offer and still harps on what he inherited from those who came before him.  May he lose gracefully and quietly return to organizing the community in which he finds himself afterwards.  At least he claims he was good at that.

    Suzette,  The vote is an individual right that for you, is yours alone.  I would never tell anyone or be so presumptious to even suggest who to vote for.  Each person comes from their own set of circumstances, which plays a big part in all of our choices.  Knowing your intellect and powers of reason, I am sure you will come to your own well researched decision. 

    With few exceptions, my choice has always come down to, what I feel, is the lesser of the two evils.  This year I feel the choices are bad or worse.  My circumstances over the past 2 years have left me disillusioned and negative about our government.  I don't believe the American people have a whisper, much less a voice, in what happens anymore, regardless of the elected president.  I have watched our President overpowered by a partisan Congress.  When the president is unable to make the changes necessary for the good of the people as he sees fit, as he was elected to do, what say do we have?

    At this point in my life, my only hope is that I live long enough to be financially able to move to Belize.

    Good luck, my friend, with your decision.  I hope, as occasionally happens, I am wrong about the future.

      I agree with you Amy.  It comes down, this year, to the lesser of two evils.  I will eventually decide who to vote for; I was just interested in who others were voting for and why

    I just published a hub you might like to read. It's doesn't have facts and figures really. It's just something to consider.

    Our country needs help financially and I think Romney can help to turn our finances around. He's certainly done so in his prior roles. That's my two cents.  smile
