US Presidential Election 2012

For some reason, I keep up with the US Presidential Election more than our own Government here in the UK. I have heard things that have gone wrong in both Obama and Romney’s speeches/arguments. However, I do have to say that I am definitely a supporter of Obama. I think that the extent of the problems he had to deal with in the last 4 years has made people think ‘how is voting for him again going to make it any better?’. Well, I think that what he has done for the US in the last 4 years has been great, though perhaps not at the speed many would want improvements to be made.
In my mind, there are many issues with Romney. Firstly, his philosophical and religious beliefs. His lack of respect for females is appalling, and his ‘binder full of women’ was just hypocritical. For starters, the company in which he worked before the election had only 7% females in high-powered jobs. He contradicts himself a lot. His belief that abortion should be made illegal is just horrible, and those women who conceived by rape will have no option but to have the baby. I know that some people believe that embryos are humans from fertilisation, and that it is the baby’s right to live. But, shouldn’t it be the mothers right to not have the baby? I just don’t think it is fair. It’s meant to be the ‘free country’ we all know it to be, but he doesn’t seem to want that.
Secondly, he doesn’t seem to know what he is talking about. Not only does he contradict himself, he uses ideas stolen from past presidents, and uses facts that are not true or viable. He used the same 5 point plan as Bush, and a president in 2008, and didn’t mention that perhaps his plan isn’t originally his. Romney has, multiple times, accused Obama of many things- here is a quote from FactCheck.org that proves this-
“Romney has falsely accused Obama of “apologizing for America” many times before. The line has been a dependable applause-getter with conservative audiences. But we found no basis for this claim in Obama’s previous speeches and remarks. And other fact-checkers came to similar conclusions.” (this is talking about the attacks in Egypt, when Romney stated that Obama felt sympathy towards the attackers, wrongly of course).
I just don’t believe that the American people are voting on reliable grounds; they have obviously false facts to rely on, and no way of knowing who was right or wrong. And Romney is using these false facts and accusations to manipulate people into voting.
I hope that Obama wins again, and he is given 4 more years to show the people what they could have missed.

One thought on “US Presidential Election 2012

  1. Dr. Miller, Randy O. Melford says:

    Obama is an Asset Americans will continue to remember. He (Obama) is the Solomon of modern day who is ruling a Country with out going to war. Bin Laden and Mohatmar Gadafi are cases very fresh .n mind. Al-Khida strength completely reduced. It took Republican forever to fetch Bin Laden and easy for Republican to destroy Afghanistan and Iraq. Romney has no plans and without a focused foreign policy. Romney who is recalling the cold war of Russia and never consistent in all his words is a big question the Americans should guide against. The United States is the heart beat of the entire world and so need a president that is very strong willed and determined objective. A quality Obama already have and has proved. Romney flip flops and changes over night. Very unsteady which shows Romney is a desperado which very dangerous to the United States and the entire world. God bless America and God bless the world.
