    Because Romney is supposed to be better than Obama? I dunno, are you saying he's no better than Obama in regards to details in his campaign? The man has promised massive tax cuts and huge increases to defense spending, with no indication of how any of it is going to be paid for leaving the only option of increase the debt to cover the cost. This is an issue to me, and pointing out something Obama has done does not address the issue it only avoids it

    If the American people fail to pick a proven winner like Romney over a proven loser like Obama then they have only themselves to blame. If sufficient numbers of Americans feel 'charisma' is necessary to be the leader of the country then it's clear they will get the government they deserve.

    The 'dumbing down' and under-education of too many Americans over the last generation has led to where it finds itself today, and it's unlikely to improve.

    What ThinkProgress doesn't "think" of...or mention...is that Presidents rarely get everything they want (any Obama supporter should know this, though) and there is no reason to think that Congress will give him such an increase in military spending. I'm just happy that Romney doesn't want to gut the military like Obama wants to do.

    Re: Voters say they’re worse off after four years of Obama, so why is Romney struggli

    What is Romney offering other than he's not Obama? The guy has been running for president for 5 years now he should have some ideas about what he wants to do. Also, blaming the press comes off as extremely weak. Specifically, if he can handle the simpletons in the media how the hell can he handle complex problems? If you aren't offering an alternative then why not stick with the guy that gives a good speech?

    A small percentage of people are probably looking at his foregin policy advisers and saying "oh hell no we've seen this show before". Most folks don't pay attention to such things but the ones that do aren't likely swoon for the ideas of Bolton and friends.

    Romney has a history of success, Obama does not.

    Then you should have a good idea as to who he is, as well as his successes.

    Al
    so, blaming the press comes off as extremely weak. Specifically, if he can handle the simpletons in the media how the hell can he handle complex problems? If you aren't offering an alternative then why not stick with the guy that gives a good speech?
    Do you have a link to where Romney was blaming the press and the explanation behind it?

    A small percentage of people are probably looking at his foregin policy advisers and saying "oh hell no we've seen this show before".
    Who are these people and what have they seen before?
    Most folks don't pay attention to such things but the ones that do aren't likely swoon for the ideas of Bolton and friends.
    How did Bolton become involved?

    Once again the Romney line I'm not Obama. No alternative solutions. Tell me how Romney is different than Obama other than Romney now claims to be against abortion.. I'm not talking about Obama's rhetoric but the laws he actually enacted. They're are not identical but they are both corporatists and authortarians which makes for a really s****y choice in my opinion.

    The differences are there, and listed not only in the candidates platforms, but in speeches themselves. The choice is clear. So, I have to ask since you think that Obama is a "Corporatist, and an authoritarian" does that mean that you will not be voting for him?

    What I do know is that Romney is an experienced turn around artist, with a proven track record of success, and when comparing apples to apples, Romney at this point in his career has more experience going into the job, than Obama ever had in '08.

    Like it or not, an election for a 2nd term as President is always a referendum on the sitting Presidents performance in his first term, and based on that, if Obama is re elected, then America deserves to slide. Which IMHO, is exactly what Obama wants for the country.

    Well, my opinion is that he sees the success that Americans enjoy in standard of living, and super power status in the world is unfair. IOW, it isn't fair that Americans enjoy AC, Cars, TVs, and other things that people in other less fortunate countries do not. In that respect I think his aim is to see America decline.
