In 2008 I was a Hillary girl. But when Obama got the nod I supported him and will vote for him on Tuesday. Here's why:

Like Lincoln he brought together “team of rivals” to lead the country. Bush left this country in a horrible shape, a recession teetering on depression, war upon war, and despite Republican leaders having as their number one priority to “make Obama a one term president”, Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Every working woman in America should applaud this. Under his leadership and as Commander in Chief Al Qeada is decimated. Osama bin Laden is swimming with the fishes. He saved the auto industry and a lot of jobs. He believes that women should be responsible for their own health care issues and that includes whether or not they want to end a pregnancy. In 2012 abortion should not even be a political issue, it's a personal. Males should get that, but unfortunately the right wing Conservatives, don't. Obamacare--despite what rich Republicans owned by the insurance companies think—is a godsend. Insurers no longer can cite 'preexisting' conditions as a cause to deny coverage.
Why I'm anti Mitt:
This man holds no personal beliefs other than his religious ones. During the 2 year campaign he's switched every sentence he's uttered. He'll say anything that his campaign managers tell him to. When he was Massachusetts governor he was Pro-Choice, now he's anti. As governor he signed the state version of Obamacare. Now he says he'll repeal it. His father George was the first politician who said that tax records of candidates and nominees should be made public. Mitt hides his fortunes in off-shore accounts to dodge taxes. The voting public has a right to see how much he's paid to the IRS and what he is invested in. His infamous “47%'”speech: He will be a president of the rich, not a president of the country. His company, Bain Capital, bought up companies to rape them of their retirement funds then sold them piecemeal and outsourced American jobs overseas. American workers should reject him. His “Binders full of women” comment shows just what a 50's mentality he has toward women. His faux pas in regard to our allies during the campaign shows his utter lack of the art of diplomacy. He uses national disasters whether it's the bombing of the embassy in Libya, or Hurricane Sandy where he stages a “Food drive” and bought $5000 worth of canned good just so his cronies could 'donate” them back during a photo op. This man supports oddball Richard Mourdock and his weird rape comments for Senate. Romney is a disgrace and should retire to one of his five compounds and enjoy his garage with elevator, and his Olympic horse. His doesn't give a rat's ass about middle class America and isn't fit to represent us.

Yep. I agree with everything you wrote. Obama might not be perfect, but he did a lot despite really strong and to me immoral opposition.

Emma you are always so eloquent and managed to say what I also believe. Romney scared me to death as much as our own Walker scares me to death now... I truly wish that Wisconsin voters had not taken RECALL fear into consideration and had really looked at the man and how much more damage he will do to our schools, environment, job growth, and state debt.
