I cannot actually... he is at least a sympathizer, which is worse in my opinion. He is a socialist, he will destroy capitolism if he is given half the chance.'08 Mobius LS

With that being said, I don't think Mitt lost the election, the influence of the Tea Party caused the Republican party to lose the election. (Ex: Akin and Murdouck) The campaign was full of lies and extreme propaganda (reference this thread) and has, hopefully, created a rift in the party bc it needs a make over. Mitt was the ideal candidate with moderate tendency until he became a puppet. I think they also just came across too partisan.
Admittedly those are all point against Mitt and not for Obama. I think "obamacare" (the rhetoric should be dropped) is more popular than the "loud talkers" make it out to be. The biggest complaint with it is the individual mandate which was dropped by 3 states last night. The people who preach how terrible it is, what are the actual concerns? For what its worth, the AMA (american medical association) supports the bill. The auto industry was also a huge deal, it saved that part of the country. I also think Sandy gave people some "feel good" about Obama. The response has been impressive (especially compared to Katrina) and he faced an opponent that is known to work against FEMA.
Those are, at least, my opinions on several of the popular topics. Maxpower, I'm not calling you out by quoting you, you just asked legitimate questions and since I have obviously posted my favor for Obama I felt somewhat of a need to respond. I tried to not go into too much detail (so it stayed semi-short) but I would love a clean thread discussing the economy and healthcare because like you said ... its hard to see how anyone things the opposite way of you and here I sit wondering the exact same thing from the opposite perspective. What ideas did Romney have that outshined Obamas plans?

Yes, the Tea Party is full of "radicals" who want to control government spending and balance the budget. On the other hand the Obama supporters are intellectuals who want what is best for the country-- like this lady:

The Tea Party wants to control government with their personal belief system. A 20% tax cut across the board so we can pay down national debt is budget that is hard to balance in my head.
Yes there are radicals on both sides, from my view and the point I was hoping to make is the radicals on the right's presence is much more vital to you and I. As a democrat, I'm not too worried about the cell phone lady making decisions that will affect the people I represent. However as a Republican, individuals like Akin and Murdouck making decisions by serving in congress is down right scary.2006 Supra 24SSV

OK, let's have George Soros instead.
We can all stick our heads in the sand and pretend this doesn't exist, but it does and it's very real:
I challenge everyone to compare today's number (I know, it's a moving target) with the number 4 years from now. I wish the Dems would have held O accountable for his BS promises. Nevermind our dead Americans on his hands. Just vote yourselves more money and more benefits. It will work forever.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

personally, I don't think either candidate was a solid choice. I sure would like to see a financial guy get into office and turn our budget/economy around, but it's too late for that this go-around.
I didn't want to see o make it another 4 years and feel he's wasted the first 4, but he was re-elected so I feel I should support him as he is our leader and hope he listened to the people during the elections..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten
