    Both choices this year made me nostalgic for Bush and Clinton and Bush. Like some of you, I also believe they wanted the best for America and cared about all Americans. If I had sensed that in either Obama or Romney, I would have not have had to vote for "the lesser of two evils."

    Amen and well said. We can only hope that President Obama has learned that half of this country does not agree with his philosophy and can move more to the center--perhaps get congress to act before the financial cliff comes.

    I think there are many wishing and hoping for better times. Thank you for the reminder of a more in touch President. However, I think it is important to remember that Bill Clinton was impreached by the House and Hilary has just recently repeatedly lied to us and the world over the tragedy in Benghazi. Happy days are ahead. We are in charge of our own destiny and that is a gift!

    Well said. Maybe having half the country not wanting him to be their president, will be his wake up call. One can only hope.

    Who could have guessed we would ever wax nostalgic for the Clinton days? I feel utterly abandoned.

    My family spent the better part of Obama's first campaign being labeled "Greedy Wall Street Fat Cats." And this is despite the fact that we couldn't buy a home, we drove old cars and lived moderately. We have experienced unemployment twice during the Obama administration. And the manufacturing jobs Obama has promised won't pay off the student loans and won't be appealing to my highly educated "Wall Street Fat Cat" husband.

    Anyone who has seen the movie, "Dave" knows that the government would be better off run like a business by a businessman.

    I will pray for our country and I will pray for our president, even if he doesn't care about me.

    I never thought I would miss the Clinton's either, but here I am finding myself feeling the same way. At least I did not feel the sense of fear I do today. I did not feel like our country was in danger, like it is today. I believe that the Clinton's do love this country and although our views are different, they did care about the well being of the people so much more than Obama does today.
