    President Obama is omong the greatest American Presidents, having inherited two wars, in Iraq and Afghanistan. A near collapsed U.S economy. Shattered Auto industry. Massive budget deficit. In addition to negative U.S locus standi. But on the other hand, look at what has achieved. A more favourable image of the U.S. Stabllized the econmy. Ended the war in Iraq and drawing down the war in Afghanistan. Resuscitated the Auto industry. Hes green on the envirnment. Thats progress indeed, to mention a few. I said four more years, Barack

    I'm proud to be able to vote for a compassionate and dedicated leader rather than a spoiled, flip-flopping, man who changes his ideology withs shifts in the political winds. Romney won't show us his tax returns but expects us to believe his ridiculous promises of low taxes, cheap gas, no deficit, great healthcare and a huge defense budget. However, he gives us absolutely zip for specifics on how he plans to pay for those things. He and Ryan also plan to kill Medicare at the first opportunity – with their "vouchers" that will be a gift to HMOs and insurance companies. OBAMA/BIDEN 2012!

    obama will have to wake up the 18 to 35 yr. olds – if he expects to get re-elected, period. If he doesn't, then he's sunk. If he loses, people should blame the DNC, not obama, or biden. This election may wind up being a tie, if you look at it thru the electoral college way of looking at it. They should have begged Hillary to replace biden. But it's too late for that now. No republican has ever won the white house, without winning the buckeye state, period. (fact) It's the 17th state to enter the union, and there is a town in the buckeye state that is the first organized settlement in the northwest territory. That means that the earlier settlers crossed over the river to head west, to settle & claim their territories, and lands.
    May the Best Man Win, November 6th.

    Why do liberals believe fiction and not facts? Obama has failed in everything and has not kept one promise that he has made!the govt job is not to take care of us the states are to make the decsions for thw states not federal govt and if u believe other wise then read our history and the constution and if u dont believw that than move to another country and see how u do there when u have no rights.

    The Republican's did a good job with their convention this week. They were on message of rediscovery of the ability to achieve the American dream. They also did a good job showing they are a inclusive paarty with different heritages and age. G.O.P wasn't just old white men speaking it was certainly a different look and feel from the past. I am excited to see how President Obama and the Democrats counter the message this coming week. This election looks like it is going to be close.
