    Will You Vote for Obama?

    As a Democrat, Liberal, Progressive, etc., if the election were to be held today, would you vote for President Obama?

    I am on the fence at this point. He has done many good things, but he has also dissappointed me in grave ways as well.

    What about you, my fellow bleeding heart? Will you vote for him?

    Yes, because there are no viable alternatives and I doubt there will be any.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Yes I would & yes he has dissapointed me Particularly with extending the Bush era tax breaks. Also he is too compromising. But he is a zillon times better than any of the pubs riding in the clown car. Bernie Sanders for POTUS!

    It always amazes me when liberals say that Obama has disappointed them. We all knew that despite the right-wings attempts to paint him as a liberal, Obama is a total moderate. His senate record should have given everyone a clue. The reality is, while we all had hopes that perhaps he would govern a little more to the left, we should have known that in todays America, it is unlikely we are going to have a true liberal in the whitehouse.

    Will I vote for Obama....pretty likely.

    Most likely "No", but I voted "I don't know"
    Too early to know who he will face.
    Sometimes it is better to know the devil you face than the one you don't.

    I'm not a Democrat, Liberal, or Progressive. Must be a etc.

    Are you saying that your completely happy with him? I do feel that yes he say done an incredible job of taking the high rd. I do not think any POTUS is perfect. Isn't there always room for improvement?

    President Obama has his good things and he has his screwups as well, just like any other President. I think I probably will vote for him, I don't really see any other alternatives that I feel could do better.

    I'm not saying that I'm completely happy with him....all I'm saying is that a lot of liberals had unrealistic expectations that he would govern as a liberal. Obama is not and never has been a liberal.
