This is one of those questions that can get out of hand real fast... but I will answer just the same...

ABO....

vote-for8vote-against

For those of you who don't know what these "ABO" answers are.. ABO means Anyone But Obama..

Anyone care to elaborate a bit more? I'm interested in some heated debate.

I will vote a straight Republican ticket. The Democrats are way too beholden to the left for me to ever vote for a candidate that has a "D" designation.As a far-right leaning conservative, I find nothing to agree with in the Democratic party. By no means do I think Republicans are perfect. Sometimes it seems the Republicans will drive us into hell as well, just a little more slowly, but the Democrats have become hopeless.

@nortonsark: "The Democrats are way too beholden to the left"
That may be true, but the other folks are too beholden to the Koch brothers and Grover Norquist, and the NRA. So, I guess it doesn't matter, we're going to hell in a basket either way, But, IMO, faster your way. (You won't have to worry about my vote, I'll be in North Carolina by election time, and that state will go red.)

@robertleemartin512:I don’t know who should get credit for creating the “ABO”, Anyone But Obama, but I attribute it to Monica Crowley. She is a moderator on NPR in NYC and can be heard on Saturdays.

for more info. However, Dr. Crowley is credited with the comment that, she would vote for a “pineapple” over Obama.
Ironically, in addition, Abo Obama, yes his first name, is “alleged” to be half-brother of the President.

I have yet to hear anything from Romney where I think he could do a better job than Obama. His plans for the economy seem no different than what we had under Bush for eight years, and you see how well that worked out. Reports yesterday said the Republican jobs plans would create NO jobs at all. Why don't people get that tax cuts and trickle-down economics do not work? They didn't work under Reagan/Bush I and they didn't work under Bush II.

Obama may be rightfully hit for many things but he is hamstrung by an obstructionist congress and even with a Dem majority in the Senate, the GOP uses filibusters on nearly every bill to ensure nothing passes. The Dems in congress can't get a jobs bill up for a vote, but the GOP won't even offer one.

As for Romney, his refusal to disclose his tax returns is troublesome. I don't think he did anything illegal, but I'm sure there's much there that is unethical or distasteful. If he's so proud of having made so much money, why not share how he did it?

Recently if you remove any statements made by the Republican party that isn't racist, classist, sexist or just plain fear mongering propaganda, you aren't left with much.

To that I say "No thanks."

Politics in America quite frankly has become extremely disheartening. As far as I can tell, the Democrats were further to the left 30 years ago than they are today, and the Republicans have moved so far to the right that I feel they can now be considered an extremist party. I am quite fed fed up with the entire lot of them. Here are the different possibilities I see happening:
1 Obama wins and Republicans retain control Congress - 4 more years of obstructionist BS causing conditions to further degrade.
2. Obama wins and the Dems take over Congress - Best case scenario in my opinion.
3. Romney wins and Dems take over Congress - Not the end of the world, but getting close.
4. Romney wins and Republicans retain control of Congress - I'm emigrating to Canada.

Meh, I'm in NY so it is unlikely that my vote (for POTUS) will matter at all, unless by some miracle NY State passes the popular vote act (whatever it is called) before November. Presidential elections are mostly a waste of air time here in NY and I see little point in caring very much. (It is unfortunate that the system works this way, but it does.)

@baqui63: The solution to your issue, and mine as well, is that the Electoral College needs to go. Instead of campaigning to the entire country, the candidates simply concentrate on the battleground states, and ignore the "safe" states like New York, California and Texas. The Electoral College had it's time and place, but now it just makes a joke of the system. Ok, a bigger joke...

vote-for2vote-against

@elforman:

Yep, that would do it.

Or keep the electoral votes, but divvy them up, state by state, based on that state's popular vote (e.g. if 40% of X state votes for bozo A and 60% votes for bozo B, then A gets 40% of the electoral votes and B gets 60%). This would at least leave these people employed, so that they won't add to the country's current job problem.

I haven't even watched the america's got talent finals yet, I don't know which one.

Since I live in California, any vote other than obama is a waste, so I'll be voting ron paul write-in. Then on my 7 Chicago area ballots I'll be voting for romney 7 times.

@kamikazeken: Remember that there may be senate and house races in your area and in those your vote will 'count' and not 'waste'.

@elforman: I dunno... I'd worry if the electoral college gets dumped, the only places worth campaigning would be cities, so states like Iowa and Nevada, considered battlegrounds, would receive absolutely no attention after the circuit's done going through NYC, DC, Houston, LA, etc. Why bother spending money elsewhere then, where the density just doesn't pay off?

To the OP, I find abortion morally abhorrent and refuse to vote for anyone that supports it. I am one of those mythical single-issue voter types, and will be voting for Mr. Romney in November. I disagree with Pres. Obama on this issue and cannot look past it to consider voting for him.
