I am sure that it took a lot of thinking and analysis to come to this conclusion. Of the two candidates Obama seems to be the right choice on this round. I can remember when my 2 year old got burned when sitting behind me and I knocked his cup of hot cocoa on his crutch. We had to go 7 miles by snowmobile put myself and him inside a sleeping bag, to 100 miles to the near hospital to be denied treatment because we had NO health insurance. In this election, that is what I am thinking. If Romney gets elected his first order of business is going to be, getting rid of the health care. My choice is very simple, although I like some of his ideas. He has it wrong on immigration. This country was built on immigrants. If you are a criminal you are not in my list.

They did not think that Powell"s endorcement was worth mentioning. But they have stories on dogs and all sorts of crap. Even FOX reported on the endorsement. Shame on ou, Shame on you! I don't plan on watching ABC any more! The only surprise is ABC’s bias. They did not think that Powell”s endorcement was worth mentioning. But they have stories on dogs and all sorts of crap.

Feel free to look it up. JOHN, biggest racists would be the ones claiming Powell endorsed Obama because they were both black. Color has nothing to do with it, John Glenn, America's first astronaut, is endorsing Obama, he's a Republican, and he's not black. Is it possible Powell and Glenn, is it possible neither expected the "Economic Collapse" under Bush to be rectified in only 4 years? The last resession took 12, under 2 Republican Presidents, and it wasn't half as serious. Vannak, after Obama was elected, a large section of “Good Christians” openly prayed to God to kill Obama.

Democrats have constantly made minorities think they are not capable enough to be successful on their own. They tell them they have to have government assistance. That is just horrible. Minorities are VERY capable, yet day in and day out Democrats continue to make minorites feel inferior. And when a Republican says that minorities can make it on their own the Democrats cause a massive firestorm and encourage minorities to call Republicans racist. All the Dems want is the minority vote. They do not want minorities to truly be successful. And with a whapred philosphy that just because a white person votes against Obama makes them a racist, then we have to point out that if any black person votes against Romney then they, too must be racist. To the Democrats and all the true racists that are out there, the only real way you can't be racist is to vote for Obama. It is absurd and those with any sense know better. Republicans would gladly vote for a black candidate in their own party. Skin color makes no difference to them. They just want a conservative that will really help the country. But when a black person runs for office as a Republican, or if a black person votes for a Republican then they are called God awful names. In conclusion, the biggest racists in this country are Democrats and that is terrible. The country is so divided. It would be wonderful if honorable Democrats would come out and condemn the actions of their fellow Democrats and their followers that run around using the race card simply because somone disagrees with their philosophies. That would help truly turn this country around and help to end the TRUE racism that exists. God bless all of us, no matter the color of our skin.

But, not be ungrateful with him!!! He ordered war outside of our territory. He succeeded in destroying our enemies. War, as we are right now, has been untouched geographically by our rivals, but if we stayed in USA by barricading only our frontier, we are sure that we could not defense efficiently everything from air (Nuclear Missile, or Booing 747 that destroyed our World Trade Center). That’s why, our actual President Obama, even though he voted against the war when he was Senator, he was not so stupid enough to continue the war in Iraq and Afghanistan to eradicate our enemies. Whoever became, or will become our President, worked and will work closely with our military’s advisers. ARRYANDAN, in your post, you put the world kill in it!!! What do you mean????!! God never told us to KILL somebody for our satisfaction!!!! Why you???? You like or you force mentally people talking with you and disagree with you to commit such horrible act?????!!!! Do not try to manipulate people!!!!! I have now a very big doubt about your meaning and how able you are!!!! Bush was our worst President for the Debt that we are suffering now.

That’s all I would like to say being a non partisan.

Dear God, Please kill the President-elect, before he does anything. If not, we'll whine and complain til you can't take it anymore. VANNAK, you seem to forget, Bush dropped the ball, the toilet was swirling away our future to the tune of 850,000 jobs a month. You seriously expected ANYONE to turn it around in 2 years, then, complain the next 2 with a House that was unwilling to reach across the aisle for anything, even a debt ceiling extension (7 under Bush went uncontested, doubling our debt).

For 2 years in his office with 100 percent controls of the House and Senate, he had chosen to pass the unnecessary health care law with no vote from republicans by letting millions of homeowners lost their houses. He just wanted a record as no US President could reform the health care before him. And now, at the very end of his mandate, he just liked to help people from losing their house. His agenda to repair US economic was not good at all. He did an unnecessary thing first, and he is doing the vital thing for growing up the economy last. When people lost their house, they lost everything. They lost their dynamic, their desire to work hard, their hope, etc, etc. By choosing to help the homeowner at the end of his mandate, the President had put the Americans’ dynamism on sleep for 4 years. OK! He passed the health care. But, how useless will be for such reform without being accepted by Republicans? Romney told Americans already that he would destroy part of such unpopular reform if he was elected. In one word, Obama worked for creating some record, but he did not care, or he did not quite enough understand how to save USA from sinking in the depression. FOUR Years!!!!!
