    Well here is the real news. We as a nation have no good pick to choose from in this election. Obama got my vote in 08 but has proven himself to be inexperienced. Romney I don't want to even comment on. So this is my suggestion stop right now send them both home and start over. Really how much worse could it be than what we are faced with at this moment. Greatest country on earth. Worst people possible running it.

    I hope that Obama will win. I'm certainly going to vote for him.
    I hope that nobody assumes that Obama will win and stays home because of rain or too much confidence.
    Don't forget that Republicans really vote.

    It's not the vote that counts. It's who counts the votes.

    I bet Obama would love to have the number of a Canadian poll if we could vote it was 78% in favour of him, we don't want Romney

    Don't listen to all this poll stuff. GET OUT AND VOTE, Don't complain afterwards. If you did not vote and the opposite party gets in, you only have yourself to blame. Make an effort to understand the issues and be engaged. VOTE

    He certainly deserves another term. Mitt Romney cannot maintain a position about anything to save his life. He has more conflicting messages than a criminal trying to avoid jail. Surely Americans are more intelligent. He is banking on being able to crap in your face and calling it rain! Don't believe the hype !

    It is not in the interest of Romney, and for that matter the Republicans, to have President Obama serving another term. But it surely is in the interest of the American people. Romney seems to be saying anything that he thinks will win him the election. He hasn't gone further than saying "I will improve the economy". He talks about rooting out extremism. But he may be throwing stones at others from a glass house. The GOP extremism first needs to go. Obama is the answer to the world's problems. The American people need to think beyond their economy and their jobs. Just give Obama a second chance and it will give the world the leadership it requires and the American people jobs and a vibrant economy. Do not do make the mistake of electing Romney. It will be too costly for the Americans as well as the world at large. A man endorsed by Bush and Donald Trumps can't be different from them. And a business-minded man whose actions are driven by the bottom line will not have anything for the common man, the 47%. We trust the American people and their collective wisdom.
