1. President Obama
2. I felt (and to some degree still feel) that someone new was a possible way to make the very necessary changes to our government and country. I wanted someone who was not a born and bred member of the "good old boys club" that seems to have been running our nation for too long. I wanted someone somewhat outside the wheeling and dealing of the system, who would be willing to challenge the dysfunctional status quo.
3. I certainly would make the same choice again. I don't think McCain would have done a better job. I wish Obama could have made more changes but I don't fault him, I fault the system and economy doomed before he ever took the oath. I wanted someone who was not part of the system who could make changes, but the reality is that is almost impossible now. I didn't know it then, nor do I think President Obama did. WE both know it now.
4. I am a registered Republican. I believe in small government and fiscal conservatism. However I never vote for anyone simply because they are in my party. I vote for the candidate who seems best for the job at the time.
5. I am unsure as to who I will vote for this election. I am not a fan of Mr Romney and I do not agree with much of what he believes. I don't think he is the right person to be our country's leader, however President Obama seems to have been in many ways neutralized in terms of his ability to accomplish change. I am particularly concerned that Obama with a Republican Congress would be in a tough position.
