    Obama himself said if he did not turn the economy around he did not deserve a 2nd term. Why is he even running? How about growing a spine, Mr. President, and keep at least ONE promise. THIS would be the one to keep.

    With large percentages of people out of work, gas prices throught the roof, astronomical deby, gigantic deficits, tens of millions on food stamps, one in six in poverty and a president that is an embarrassment on foreign affairs the only possible reason that there are obama groupies aren't because they are clueless as much as they want to continue be on the government dole and nursed by an out of control federal government.

    With all of your unmet promises, Mr. President, it IS a hard sell.

    The president already made his point - he's a one term situation. The Obama lemmings will vote for him regardless. The middle understands that our Chicago community organizer is in way over his head.

    The Romney-Zombies will vote for Romney. These uninformed souls are hopeless and clueless.

    Wow, it is easy to demonize someone who has a different point of view.

    I am in the middle class. I don't want government to help me, so much as get out of my way.

    That's what Obama does not get. He says he wants to redistribute wealth to the middle class, but I believe most middle classer's are like me - get out of my way. Stop with the senseless regulation. Let me refinance my home without it taking so long I have to re-submit my financials 3 times (due to the new banking regulations). Let the bad banks fail, then they will learn to make good loans.

    What I believe Obama is saying, without actually saying it is, here poor people, let me give you a handout, and continue to do so as long as i am in the white house. And oh, by the way, now after 8 years you are addicted to the welfare state, good luck with that.

    The only things he has done are failed stimulus, ill-conceived bail outs and obamacare, which has raised everyone's health care costs. Strike one, strike two, strike three, yer out!!!

    But based on what I've heard from Mitt and Ryan, I'll be voting for Obama again.

    That's mainly because I'm still trying to figure out which flip Mitt is flopping on today.

    President Obama is surely moving the American people on a pathway "FORWARD and DOWNWARD". The American people deserve effective changes that will "lift" the economy now, and provide genuine hope for our future. It's time for Obama to step down, so the people of this country can move forward and upward in building this country.

    What he is trying to get away with saying is:

    "I am going to do all the stuff I promised last time...for reals this me..."

    The Obama-Zombies will vote for Obama even if unemployment were 20% - these uninformed souls are hopeless and clueless. Romney already holds a 10 point lead with independent voters which is a BIG change from 2008. Obama's appeal is to the government enslaved who don't have jobs and don't want them. Much easier to simply sit back and collect your welfare check than try to find a job especially in a dead Obama jobs market. Are there more Americans who are ambitious and want jobs or are then more Americans who are lazy career entitlement types for life? We will find out in November. America will not survive 4 more years of Obama... but only "real Americans" care.
