Voting for Obama. So is Fiance. We are in Ohio, so our votes actually count (not to say other’s votes don’t, but you know what they say about as Ohio goes…).
I was open minded about Romney at first, but he dug himself into a hole that is just too deep for me. And also at the debate last night I just couldn’t get over the fact that it seemed like he would and was saying anything to try to get people to vote for him, regardless of truth.
President Obama brought it up, and I agree with him in that I don’t think Romney has the balls to say “No” to people from his own party. That doesn’t sit well with me. He panders to whomever is his audience at that moment.

@eimajleigh: Fox “News” aka Faux News, is definitely scarier than the Daily Show. People know the Daily Show is sattire. However, not many people realize Fox News is fiction. I am so sick of people repeating the crap they hear on Fox News. Lies! Propaganda!

Obama, even though it won’t do a damn thing other than cancel out someone else’s vote in my state. Romney/Ryan’s “plans” do NOT MAKE MATHMATICAL SENSE. This drives me up the wall. You can’t lower taxes for everyone, increase military spending, and somehow cut the deficit. And I seriously don’t understand how he can bash the ACA when his Mass. plan was basically the framework for it. And OH MY GOD there are no “death panels”, christ. Quit beating that dead horse, dude. I really wish Obama had been stronger at pointing out these things last night.
Sorry, I get angry.

@mrssoontobeh: It’s funny because I have similar feelings about Romney/Ryan – I can’t fathom voting for them or understand why anyone (except for the extreme right-wing) would vote for them.
I wish third party options were more viable, I love Jill Stein – but in the end, the day after the election one of two men will be President-elect. I really DON’T want that be Romney, so I am voting for Obama.

I’m voting Romney/Ryan, I feel it’s the lesser of two evils (wish I didn’t have to choose between two evils, but that’s the option). I would vote for Ron Paul, but I feel like Romney needs more help winning the election and I’d prefer him over Obama. My Fiance voted Obama last election and he said he’s changing his vote.

@misspeanut: I dont think he used the term Death Panel. BUT, there is a board of 15 people that are not regulated by the government that will have an influence on medical care. Its a fact, and one that many analysts believe will be brought up at the next debate

I just wanted to add that I lived in Massachusetts when Romney was governor, and by the end of his term, the state was 47/50 in job growth. That is a fact. He claims he could create all kinds of job growth, but where is the evidence of that? He couldn’t even do it for his own state. How could he create job growth for 50 states?
The answer; he can’t. I feel he says whatever he thinks the audience he is addressing wants to hear. He is hell bent on becoming President, and is like a fairweather fan, which is why he flip flops constantly.
Romney was governor during the disaster project, the Big Dig. The project was billions over budget, and years behind schedule. Romney didn’t finally step in and do something until 2006 when the ceiling collapsed and killed a woman. His manageril skills seem to suck, because that entire project was a disaster. As governor, he should have investigated why the project was costing so much time and money, and how to get it back on track.

@mrssoontobeh: They will only have impact on what Medicare will and won’t cover. According to factcheck.org – “The board is a 15-member panel that’s tasked with finding ways to slow the growth of Medicare spending. So, its work concerns Medicare, not everyone seeking health care. And, according to the law, the board can’t touch treatments or otherwise “ration” care, or restrict benefits.” I just hate when people are screaming that the government is going to kill grandma (exaggeration, obviously, but being in Texas, my facebook feed is full of people complaining about death panels!).

I’m voting Romney but I do wish the GOP could have given us a better candidate. He is definitely the lesser of the two evils though.

I know he won’t win, but I think we’re screwed regardless of if Obama or Romney wins, so I’m taking the oppurtunity to show support for a 3rd party candidate that I actually like.

writing in my name.
Not sure if I’ll be able to…just changed my address last week, and the MVC sends in the request to change your voting records too. I’ve never missed voting in a presidential election, since 1976 when I got to vote for the first time.
