    No, they are both flawed.
    I am just trying to balance the scale with the overwhelmingly anti-Obama sentiments that have been posted on the forum. And, hoping to bring focus on the facts that most only put credence on "facts" while gathering these "facts" from a very narrow spectrum of information.

    So, posting twisted facts about Obama like "woman murdered", No job requirements for welfare, birther, "You didn't build your company" and SO many other attacks that he had no part of or were simply untrue is not a problem? It is only a problem if it is anti-Romney? Ok, whatever....

    Now I will return the favor...is there something in my statement below that you don't understand?...

    Let's call a spade a spade here - none of the 4 candidates have any military service and none of them felt compelled to volunteer, even though there was a war going on when each was of age to serve. It is ludicrous to try and make any distinction between any of them on this particular issue...There is nothing here to debate and you are trying to make something out of nothing...

    No offense, of course...

    There are many differences between the candidates to debate. Why you are trying to make a distinction between them where there is no distinction is a mystery to me...Obama and Biden are just as guilty of failing to serve in the military during a time of war as Romney and Ryan. They all failed to step forward and place themselves in harm's way for their country. There are no degrees to pregnancy, nor are their degrees to failing to serve. You either are or you aren't, and you either do or you don't...but that is a strike against all 4 of them - not just Romney. If you think Romney is unsuitable for failing to serve, then yhou must also think Obama is unsuitable to serve...any other conclusion would be illogical and inconsistent...

    Allison of course they are both flawed, the are human and politicians

    When Romney wins and if he runs the Country in the ground, I will be outspoken against him. And if in 2016 a Democrat runs against him and is better for our Country I will vote Democrat.

    I could care less about Parties, last 30 years I have generally voted for the Lesser of Two Evils

    That is the scariest truth if all about politics, across so many countries, we choose so often to vote for the least worst option, all the time wondering what has happened to the genuine leaders, those with the skill, even if it is only the skill of rhetoric, to make believers and followers out of the masses.

    Lol this was fun to read.
    I don't like either candidates, really, but I sure as hell would NEVER vote for ROmney. He thinks the average waitress makes enough money to be considered "middle class" . . . Not to mention all the hoop bla about the horse he sold that was supposedly drugged up with a plethora or pain killers (which I believe IS true) . . . I also do not prescribe to his policy on abortion . . .

    Sadly, that has become a sign of the times. There is so much scrutiny of people's private lives, so much sensationalism, so much dragging people through the mud, that most of the brightest and best, and best suited for the job, simply don't want to mess with it. Not many people are willing to be dragged through the mud, and you have to ask yourself just what kind of person does? And what it boils down to is only an uber egotistical, power hungry person would want it to begin with. It is no wonder we have to vote for the lesser of two evils - the good guys don't run...if they did they wouldn't win anyway. Does anyone think a person that would run a squeaky clean camaign with no negative advertising would have a snowball's chance in Hades of even getting to first base? No question - something is wrong with the picture...

    Gee, I don't know what the problem is, his father convinced him, so he says, not to go. It is not the religion thing that is the problem, Wright?

    This is probably why Colin Powell decided not to run some years ago. Shame.

    Yeah, and I would have supported him, but hindsight tells us Clinton was the right man for the right time. He was socially liberal, fiscally conservative, and combined with the House and Senate Republican majorities, had a very successful Presidency, accomplishing advancement of the lower and middle classes while effecting a budget surplus. Whether you like him or not, or are a Republican or Democrat, that is quite an accomplishment by any measure. Sadly, Obama has undone much of what was accomplished...

    Very true (unfortunately). I was supporting Obama last time for that reason, now I support Romney for the very same reason.

    I like Colin Powell though, definitely would support him, but he's not a choice anyway...
