Why would any independent voter choose obama?

  1. Serious question.

    Record deficit, record unemployment, no improvement.


  2. 1.Obama came into office with a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit.The 2013 deficit is currently at 900 billion

    The last republican president came into office with a balanced budget and turned it into a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit

    2.Obama came into office with over 800,000 job loses per month

    3.There has been improvement

    There really is no reason, the only people still left cheering for Obama are the mindless far left zombies who would pull the lever for anything with a "D" behind the name.

    Nothing mindless about it. As bad as things are, Romney's policies (so far) will make them worse. He can't cut FTEs and improve America Inc.'s bottom line, because laid off workers don't "go away" in an economy. He can't sharply cut government spending without pushing us back into recession (a fact both parties finally understand). He could gradually reduce the rate of government spending, but then that's what Obama is doing. He wants to cut taxes on, as you love to point out, the group that pays the most taxes, but he wants to maintain spending on the military, or increase it, which is a big slice of the pie, so deficit growth looks inevitable. And to think that the job creators are not creating jobs because they're short on cash is laughable on the evidence. So we come to demand, which even our libertarian posters here admit is what's holding back the recovery, but analysis of Romney's (not really his) plan indicates that his middle class taxes will rise. So we come to regulations. Well, it's true, Obama has done a lot of regulation making (and enforcing). Where? Primarily food and pharma safety.

    Or they are one of the 100 million who are getting a welfare check from Obama and want it to keep coming even at the detriment of the country.

    Didn't Kennedy once say, "Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country?"

    Unfortunately, this isn't the Democratic party of the 1960's but a whole new mentality of give me a hand out and make up any lie if it will help a pol get elected.

    + 15.9 Trillion and counting and counting...

    they vote with their feelings and they don't like numbers. Very many voters aren't reasoning beasts very much at all... Obama will pump them up so they feel good... Republicans COULD adopt strategies to appeal to those kinds of voters but they aren't smart enough so far.
  8. "Why would any independent voter choose obama?"

    Not one rational one does, unless they think they are going to cash in on it.
  9. good point.
  10. FOXNews has Obama at +9. With Rush and Coulter going after Andrea Saul who was defending RomneyCare, it appears this election is over.

    Hillary '16 !
