Now that we're past the convention, I feel like a bunch of old white motherfarkers are trying to sell me a goddamn Betamax while trying to convince me it's "the next big thing".

The other Romney supporter in here won't answer...why are voting for Romney?

Hope and Change.


Seriously does it every bother you that you can't answer a question like that? I see this all the time with Republicans. You ask them why they feel a certain way and they can't answer. Does that ever make you pause and reevaluate why you believe something other then someone told you should feel that way?


Yes, cause the other side never has a reason for what they believe. They are all a bunch of uneducated rednecks who cling to their guns and religion. If the other side had anything more than a neanderthal pea brain they would see how wrong they are and how right you are. Save us from ourselves oh enlightened left.

Why do you think someone would support Romney over Obama. Difficulty: Can't use the words racist, homophobe, war on women, or rich/selfish.

Corvus: OK the RNC convention wasn't the worst thing ever. But I was probably below average for a political convention. Romney needed at least a better than average convention. He did not get that.

Does that mean it's over? No. The debates could be a big change to things but Obama is going to have an advantage there.


There was nothing wrong with the convention. They needed a better nominee. The speeches were loaded with endless stupid platitudes on purpose. They have no real plans and there are just too many topics that are off limits. All things considered, I give them a B+ on the convention.

Even if the would have nailed it, it wouldn't make a difference. Romney's only chance now is if Obama gets high before the debates.

Heck, he deserves another 40 years! He's done an AMAZING job!

Obama is going to tear the Republicans to shreds. Including Bush, who gave him the mess he inherited, the obstructionist Republicans in the House and Senate, and Romney and Ryan, just based on the policies they've stated that they support.

In June 2012, Romney pledged to enact a system to replace the Affordable Care Act, but did not release details of how it would be paid for.[89] Romney's plan includes expanding health savings accounts to pay for premiums, increased competition and consumer choice, and lawsuit reform.[90] Romney has also praised the cost controls of the mandated universal health care coverage of Israel.[91]

And it gets funnier and even more relevant every time you do it. But seriously, pointing to Real Clear Politics and arguing that the poll aggregation only gives Obama a 0.5% lead in the nationwide polls is entirely irrelevant because the President is not elected by popular vote, he is elected by the electoral college. Obama currently has a substantive lead in the electoral college. See here: http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/

As for your other points, this election is certainly not about a single issue, folks will vote for a whole bunch of different reasons, and even if the economy and jobs turn out to be the most important reasons it isn't enough for Romney to say "Obama did a bad job." He has to convince America that he will do a better job. He really hasn't done that because the only economic vision he has articulated is "cut taxes and deregulate everything" which a lot of folks remember as being the policies that got us into this mess in the first place. He had an excellent platform to expand upon that in the form of his convention, but he really didn't, he put forward almost no policy specifics.

It is clearly hurting him, the polls have been drifting back in Obama's direction, heck 538 gives Obama the best chance of winning today then they have in the entire race. The whole convention was a colossal missed opportunity. But hey, there is still two months to go and Romney could make up some ground with a good debate performance. He could also make up ground with his substantial cash on hand advantage, or perhaps the race-baiting the Republican party has been engaging in may pay dividends (doubtful at this point as the countries supply of angry old white guys is diminished).. But saying at this point that he is in a good position is just delusional, he is behind and needs to make up a LOT of ground if he is going to win in November.

That's not 50% of Americans, that's ~50% of people responding to a poll expressing an intention to vote. This may seem like a petty detail, but the semantics here ARE important. I do believe that the "eligible but willfully non-voting" segment is a significant block.

Now, of those specifically voting FOR Romney, would you not agree that a -very- significant portion of that vote falls into one or more of the listed reasons?

Funny, cause 1 and 3 are actually the reasons why I am voting against him. And 2, well that's not a reason to elect someone is it? You do realize a Republican would have done the same exact thing.

4) Vastly superior record in support for the sciences
5) Intelligent deficit reduction using both tax increases and cuts (or you know, listening to the damn experts)
6) Much better record on support for green technology/new energy technology coupled with a realistic energy policy (heres a hint: theres no single answer thats adequate)
7) supports finance reform
8) Rights for the LGBT community, women's rights

badaboom: Now tell me why you are voting for Obama.


I can give you mine if you like.

I'm an imperialist social liberal with left-of-center fiscal leanings.
I strongly approve of Obama's foreign policy.
I dislike ACA because I prefer a single-payer system, but I believe ACA is better than what we had and a necessary step towards something better. I consider Republican alternatives a regression.
I largely disapprove of Obama's stances towards personal freedoms (NDAA, initial support of SOPA/PIPA) but feel Republican stances to be much worse.
I consider Obama to be too much of a corporatist fiscally, but again, feel Republican plans are much worse.
I feel Obama was naive in his first couple of years in handling Congress but do believe he has since grown and improved in that aspect and would have more leverage in a second term.
I believe the Supreme Court is too far to the right and would prefer Obama in position to appoint justices than Romney.
I will not vote third party because I'm a realist that remembers 2000 and the Ralph Nader effect.

badaboom: cameroncrazy1984: badaboom: Yeah, that's it. You got me. Now tell me why you are voting for Obama.

1) PPACA
2) bin Laden
3) he plans to cut the deficit by using a sane strategy of raising taxes on the wealthy and cutting fraud and waste out of government.

See, when your candidate actually has a record worth noting and has articulated a plan for the future, it's very easy to answer that question.


Funny, cause 1 and 3 are actually the reasons why I am voting against him. And 2, well that's not a reason to elect someone is it? You do realize a Republican would have done the same exact thing. At least we can agree bin Laden being dead is a good thing. But hard to reconcile the whole drone, gitmo still open etc with the hard left. Which Obama is it? The Nobel Peace prize Obama or the America Fark, Yeah. Can't be both.


You are against cutting the deficit by a sane strategy?

He's backing Grover Norquist's party... of course he is.
