    Mitt Romney because this country needs to turn around.  Obama is a terrible president and I hope he is soundly defeated.

      What needs to turn around?

      Anything and everything Barack Obama did, Cathylynn. Anything and everything he did.

    the president because he's for equal pay for equal work, will protect social security and medicare, will keep education in this country strong and accessible, he's not homophobic, will continue to make our country more energy independent, will fight for the middle and lower classes in this very unequal world, will continue to keep our country well-respected in the world, will continue to keep us safe without wasteful military spending.  i could go on, but you get the idea.

      21 months later - the middle class is doing poorly, education is basically run by the teachers' unions, we are nowhere near energy independent (and he keeps delaying the Keystone pipeline) and America is disrespected around the world.  Satisfied?

    Mitt Romney. Why? If for no other reason than he's not Barack Obama.

    Romeny's not a Liberal (spit). Sorry, whenever I say or write the word liberal, I tend to spit.

    I believe Barack Obama was born in this country but he's not an American in his heart or mind. I believe he hates this country, it's Constitution, and all it stands for.

    Yes, I know he's was a Constitutional professor. That doesn't mean he believes in what it says.

    Barack Hussein Obama's been a horrible president and, after Carter, that's saying something.

      And Willard Mitt Romney would be a horrible president, after Reagan, that's saying something!

      wow spit and hatred - makes me even happier Romney didn't win.  I don't like Obama but Romney and your ilk terrify me.

      Why, thank you, ChristinS. A liberal disliking me is a compliment as far as I'm concerned. It proves I'm doing all the right things right. Thank you for making my day just a little brighter.

    Gary Johhnson. Why? Why not? He stood for the majority of things I believe in and seemed to be the perfect middle between Obama and Romney. He is for gay marriage, pro choice, pro ending the drug on war (giant waste of money) and is conservative when it comes to the budget. I also chose not to just vote for who the media led me to.

      the fight against drugs is only an accentuation of its own harmful effects. i mean. why not do drugs? because of the law, not cos they suck. thats the message they're putting out

    I voted for Mitt Romney because I believe social issues are monumentally less important than economic issues. Obama has not improved the country enough within the last four years to be considered a good president. I also believe his alliances reside outside this country. I don't trust him as a president. Like others, part of my reasoning in supporting Romney was because he's not Obama. Romney, as a Republican, believes in resuscitating this country's emphasis on hard work and survival of the economically fittest. I don't want my hard-earned money snatched from me only to benefit those who refuse to work to make their own lives better.

    The cute one in the blue shirt...why was there any other reason ?
    sorry... politics, religion, sexual preference, extra-marital affairs, weight , age and bra size are not exactly my choice for discussions..unless it's U TUBE worthy...

      I said blue shirt, but maybe it was a red shirt, not really sure..but ...Gene Hackman was with me at the time, perhaps he'd remember what colour the shirt was...

    Mitt Romney. A decent man, a brilliant intellect and a person with a proven record of getting things done. We missed an opportunity to elect a great president.

      mitt romney, an insensitive, lying bully, 20 whole IQ points dumber than obama, and the things he got done were not mostly good. we missed an opportunity to have another karl rove puppet run the country into the ground.

      WOW!!! Your side won and you're still so bitter. I bet you're a joy to live with. rfmoran, made a nice comment and you just had to make a nasty remark. The term "sore winner" comes to mind.

      not at all bitter, just very realistic.

      bitter would be "i hope he gets scabies." i'm perfectly happy for him to go back to enjoying his millions as long as he leaves my country alone.

      Sounds more like sore loser to me but we don't expect a lot out of a liberal (spit) and we're never disappointed

      He is all right but his opposer had better thoughts about the economy and the state of the union.
