Bin Laden is dead.
GM is alive. Corporate profits are at an ALL-TIME HIGH. The economy has been growing for over three years.
4.5 MILLION Americans have gotten private sector jobs.
30 million people will be able to buy affordable health insurance, as will the millions of people who have pre-existing conditions.

Obama's definitely going to win. I'd say most people base the decision on who they are going to vote for not based on facts or figures, but on which candidate they like better. Although, in my opinion has Romney beat on both likability and his proven ability to lead and fix issues like the economy, war, healthcare, etc. I know republicans will say that Obama is complete and utter failure, but it's simply not true. Sure, he's not a complete success, but he's done some good things for the country.
Romney, on the other hand, is kind of shifty and unlikable. He doesn't appear comfortable speaking in front of people. He makes a lot of gaffes. And I personally don't agree with most of his politics. I mean he basically invented "Obamacare" when he was governor of Massachusetts, but now he talks like it is ruining our country. That shows a huge lack of character on his part, and there is no way he can win without a good moral character.

People who can't understand the truth twist it, but Romney is unfit to govern this great nation.

Obama was heralded as the great hope for humanity--result abject failure.
Romney is not being touted as anything much at all.
Isn`t there someone else we can choose ? Pretty please.?

Obama himself said that if he didn't fix the economy in his first term, than his presidency "should be a one-term proposition."

Whether the dems are given more time to dismantle America.
Democrat President Wilson (1913-1918) said, “You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.” He may have been the first democrat to appreciate the potential use of multiculturalism (“If it’s white or American, trash it!”) in deconstructing the Constitution, saying, “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Obama put it this way: “Every nation is exceptional in its own way.”
Democrat President Roosevelt “let it all hang out” in his speech before Congress on January 11, 1944:
“We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights...” [which included]:
-The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation
-The right of every family to a decent home
-The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health
-The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment.
LBJ’s Great Society became the largest redistribution of wealth program in our history. Obama is trying to “outperform” LBJ.
Because of the Internet, talk radio and Fox News (all non-existent a generation ago!) today we know that democrats have been gradually changing America into a European style welfare state.
-2/4/10 Gallup poll: 61% of liberals have a positive view of socialism.
-6/2/11 Gallup poll: 71% of democrats favor re-distributing wealth.
-9/6-9/2012 http://www.gallup.com/poll/157481/majori%E2%80%A6 Those who believe government should have more control over our lives: Republicans 15%; Independants, 29%; Democrats 67%.
-Now they have national health care, the foundation of all welfare states.
The winners in this “change” are democrat politicians and unions:
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/list.php%E2%80%A6 Top All-Time Donors, 1989-2012:
-Of the top twenty political contributors between 1989 and 2012 twelve are unions; they give less than 5% to Republicans; only six of those top twenty are corporations who gave about 40% to democrats (Goldman Sachs gave 56% of its cash to democrats).
-The NEA (“teachers” union) gave $43,613,263: 71% went to democrats, 5% to Republicans.
-The AFT (“teachers” union) gave $34,698,466: 86% went to democrats, 0% to Republicans.
-The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees gave $61,610,080: 73% went to democrats, 0% to Republicans.
10/21/10 Wall Street Journal: The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is now the biggest outside spender of the 2010 elections. It gave 0% to Republicans between 1989 and 2012.
And what do the unions get in “pay back”?
