If you think these politcal threads are tiresome for republican voters, you can imagine how tiresome they are for me, who voted for Obama in "08 and will do so again.
HOwever, a person has the right to play primarily in this playground, if they so desire. Just play fair and it wont be a problem.
Setting aside the main topic of the thread, which is silly, I really don't understand why anyone would vote for Obama again. Politics aside because we are all of different political views, why would anyone vote for an incumbent President that has run up the debt out of sight, put us deeper into the recession with high unemployment and record food stamp participation, lowered our country's credit rating for the first time in history, greatly increased government's footprint and involvement in our daily lives, greatly increased regulations, and I could obviously go on and on.
I am a moderately conservative Republican, and voted for Bush the first time, but after experiencing him for 4 years and seeing exactly what his policies were, I didn't vote for him the second time.
I just can't understand it...do liberals actually LIKE a deep recession? Do liberals really LIKE half the country on food stamps and a national debt that is killing us economically? Do liberals simply not understand the implications of the debt?
This whole thing doesn't make sense to me at all. Politicians campaign for office, you listen to what they say, pick the one that fits your political philosophy the best, and elect them. But doggone, when a President is a failure and the entire country suffers, why in the world would you re-elect him? I was just as critical when we re-elected Bush. Are Democrats so blind that they actually think Obama has done a good job?
I can understand the lazy entitlement segment of society supporting him because they can sit around doing nothing and get their liberal welfare, but I just don't understand how intelligent regular people can support a person that has failed...whether Republican or Democrat is not really the issue.
I sort of liken it to being from a Chevy family, so you go out and buy a Chev, it ends up being a POS and falls apart, and you go right out and buy another one instead of going with a Ford or Honda or something...makes no sense to me...
