    I'd say it's because Obama is doing a pretty good job under the circumstances, and all the GOP candidates blow monkey chunks.

    Ahh, yes, the ever popular, "people who vote for (insert name here) must be ignorant," fallacy.

    Nice.

    Desperate much?

    What about all the people who despised Bush (I was one of them), who now are defending Obama (I am NOT one of them)... what about those people? It's like everyone suddenly forgot what they were so mad about.... You didn't vote for Bush I'm assuming, but you seem rather defensive of Obama, can I ask WHY THE F***?

    What is it you're defending? Bush expanded Medicare like whoa. Obama has increased Defense expenditures. You seem smug about something. WTF is it?

    Tell you what. I PROMISE I will vote for Obama '12 if he repeals Bush's Medicare D and halves DoD expenditures. Then all he's gotta do is renege on PPACA and he's my hero.

    Fat ****ing chance ANY of that'll happen though. He IS Bush. And you love him because he's less idiotic sounding in front of a mic. Easy to please, you are.

    I'm starting to think that the economy might not be the major issue in this election.

    We did in fact end a couple of wars in the last year. We should probably ramp up another, don't want the defense industry getting lean.
