I urge everyone to carefully compare their plans and what they have said and done before choosing for whom to vote. We have the freedom to express our opinion and vote that is still lacking in many other countries.
Obama has no second-term plan and his first-term plan has failed. It's time to kick Obama off the team and try a new starting quarterback. To vote based on gender, race or party. or to make excuses due to gender, race or party is foolish.
Tonight's focus on foreign policy is a perfect opportunity to acknowledge and join the debate raging in Latin America, where several current presidents are finally calling for an honest and open debate about how to end the drug war's decades-long bloodbath in their countries.
By overplaying his hand, Romney allowed the deft, if defenseless, Obama to charm his way back into the hearts of swing voters, while revving up his base. In an election that will come down to the ground game, such enthusiasm is key.
Four years later, these remain the best reasons for my decisions, which I don't regret. However, it is mortifying to find that there aren't more substantive reasons for supporting this administration, and a negative reason for changing my vote to the other side.
Romney possibly won the debate simply by virtue of suggesting something new, but he won't win the heart of America. A machine man with a machine heart and machine mind cannot possibly win a population of compassionate, thinking individuals.
By now the plans are distilled, practice rounds completed, curveballs anticipated and (Lord help us) zingers rehearsed. In order to "win" tonight -- and on November 6th -- some debate dos and don'ts for President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.
Romney's economic plan has gained the public endorsement of more than 600 professional economists. This public support, however, is diminished by the fact that most of these economists are urging voters to do as they say, but not as they do.
Less than 80 days away from the 2012 presidential election, we face a unique moment in time. We have an opportunity to stand up for underwater homeowners across America -- and in so doing, fix the housing crisis and save the economy.
President Obama and Mitt Romney would do well to point out that having our primary system of saving be an institution that neither Democrats nor Republicans can figure out and which can't pay a very large chunk of its bills going forward is doing no one any good.
So let's connect the dots here. Governor Romney finds the whole speech, even when taken in context, to be "even more disconcerting." To my mind, the speech is little more than common sense to anyone who lives in the real world and is honest about how a business actually works.
Romney is identified hand and fist with Wall Street's interests. Yet it is still early in the campaign. It would be a coup were his campaign to look to that singular personage in government who fought tooth and nail for the interests of everyday America.
How disgusting it is that an advertisement for President Roosevelt's re-election campaign is shamelessly referring to the success of this year's D-Day invasion and the recent liberation of Paris in his campaign for re-election!
