re: Why people vote for Obama??


quote:

you OP has two parts to it. why did people vote for Obama in 2008 and why would someone prefer him to Romney now.

Allow me.

IN 2008, the market had just tanked. People had the perception, not completely accurate, that wall street = Republican.
Bush, one of a family of Senators, Governors and his own father was both CIA director and president of the USA. So what Bush43 did, the Dems could pretty fairly attach to the party of which he was merely the tip of the iceberg. He was not even in charge.
Darth Vader ran things from VP Bruce Cheney's office.
THe people rejected the entire Republican fricking party.
The WMD war was the best part. Making up fake reasons to kill hundreds of thousands of people. Wowser.
In my view, and my view is what counts, because you are asking why, and I am fricking telling you my truth, which therefore, by definition 100% accurate, as I see it.
Bush was perceived as having taken us to war so as to be later called "a war-time president", on account of Bush being a history buff and convinced that 'history' judges president who served in war-time as the better ones. That perception was given to us by the press secretary of the President.
You cant frick up worse.
Hence, Obama.

On to now: I will do its own post for now.






Great post.

You are so shallow. Why did you vote for McCain? Was it because he was white? I don't understand how poor whites vote for the Republican party. When I visit LA nothing's changed for poor blacks or whites. They are still in trailer parks with run down cars. I'm glad I got the hell out of La when I did.

Blacks have supported the Democratic Party for the last 40 years. What has it gotten for them (besides free cell phones) ? Wake up man.

I voted for McCain because I didn't believe in hope and change. I also didn't want to see the economy get to this point. I voted for a war hero that had an extreme amount of experience in the government. If Herman Cain was the republican candidate I would vote for him. I have also donated a lot of money to Allan West in Florida and Mia Love in Utah because I do believe the RNC needs a more diverse congress members. Again stop making outrageous claims of racism and point to actual points. Why are you voting for Obama?

Don't place black people in a box. I'm voting for Pres Obama because I'm better off than 4 years ago. I agree with the changes made in the last 4 yrs. we ended the senseless war in Iraq, passed healthcare reform. My elderly mother has no more copaymemts and pays a lot less for her medicine. I'm happy with the way things are going. I'm making lots of money this year.The economy was bad when Pres Obama took office. So you donated to black candidates and I've voted for white candidates. When blacks voted for Clinton I don't remember anyone saying we voted for him because of race. I'm an informed individual. It's not about race. It's about who I trust.

Obama wanted thousands of troops to stay in Iraq, and we'd still be there if not for Iraq telling him to frick off.

The only direct Obamacare "benefits" in effect right now are no more co-pays on contraceptives.

Exactly what kind of "medicine" is your elderly mother taking?

The economy was bad when Pres Obama took office.


And it's a lot worse now.

So am I, but is the country as whole? Household income has dropped in every year of Obama's presidency. That is the number one sign of a terrible recovery because under normal recoveries household incomes are supposed to increase

quote:

we ended the senseless war in Iraq,


Are you really going to bring up his foreign policy? We had 4 americans killed in Libya after repeated warnings and requests for more security. 2/3rds of the soldiers we have lost in Afghanistan have come under Obama. We had embassies attacked, American flags taken down and burned then replaced with Al Queda flags.

quote:

passed healthcare reform


Yes that is exactly what we needed when he took office
Obamacare is miserable for a medical field that is experiencing a doctor and nurse shortage. I hope you enjoy that when your mother gets sick she will have to face a board of 14 unelected bureaucrats that will decide what care she gets. She needs a new kidney? Too bad it goes to whoever is youngest on the list. Yes the economy was bad but Obama's policies have only made it much worse. Threats of Obamacare penalties are killing confidence. Increasing regulations are shutting down the ability for businesses to hire. Increasing taxes on the wealthy who are the ones who create jobs.

The country is a lot better. The jobs are coming back. The stock market is back. Housing is on the move and people are buying cars again. I don't care how we got out of Iraq. We never should have gone in. We lost more soldiers in Iraq under Bush and no one talks about it. Obamacare has kicked in for Seniors. I don't live my life in fear. I always look for a silver lining. I didn't like Bush but I respected him as Pres. I didn't visit DC while he was in office and I was 5 minutes away. Oh and by the way He gave the order to kill Osama. I live near the Pentagon. Bush did not keep us safe. Obama has keep us safe.

Growth in GDP would disagree with you and you obviously are ignoring the fiscal cliff we are facing. A lot of economists believe we are already in another recession.

quote:

The jobs are coming back.


No they are not. We creating less jobs to keep up with population growth. If the same number of people were in the workforce as when Obama took office we have an unemployment number around 11%. The real unemployment number is around 14%. There are 1 in 6 people in poverty and 25 million Americans out of work.

quote:

The stock market is back


Not a sign at all of economic growth.

quote:

Housing is on the move


It should be have you seen how low mortgage rates are now

quote:

people are buying cars again


Please take a look at GM's sales number. Trust me they are miserable.

quote:

Obamacare has kicked in for Seniors


Obamacare will be miserable for seniors

quote:

I live near the Pentagon. Bush did not keep us safe. Obama has keep us safe.


Oh you live near the pentagon. You must be a foreign policy genius. That statement is not true at all by the way. Al Queda is gaining strength. Iran is threatening to nuke Israel. The muslim brotherhood in Egypt. Any president would of given the order to kill Osama. How do you think they found him? The strengthening of our militaries intelligence that was decimated under Clinton.

If that's the case Bush would have killed him. Remember he said died or alive. I was with him. I went through 9-11. I saw the hole in the pentagon. Bush punked out and started a different war. Pres Obama said he would get him if he was in Pakistan and McCain said he was naive. He got him. I know you don't want to give him credit. You probably think Romney should get the credit. I hated Osama because the plane the hit the Pentagon had little kids that had never flown before on it going to CA for a school competition. Obama gave the order and he's dead. I can't wait to vote for him. That's leadership.

It doesn't matter. He got him. Washington was a ghost town for 4 days. No one would step outside. I lived through it. It was scary. I'm ready to vote. Bush punked out. If Bush would have killed him, he would be on Mt Rushmore. Obama 2012. Don't get jealous because a democratic president got him. Don't hate. Give him credit. I'm ready to vote.

Don't blame Clinton for Bush failures. He said died or alive. I believed him. He punked out. Now you want to attack Obama's foreign policies. Did you attack Bush when he was in office? All I keep hearing is Bush keep us safe. Well the Pentagon had a huge hole in it and this country had to change course. I didn't feel safe that day. Somebody lied. He had 7years. He punked out. I thought Republicans were tough on foreign policy. That was weak. Obama got the most wanted man in the world.
