    In response to a thread I saw about no one talking of their support for Mitt Romney and only trashing Obama - Here ya go:

    I, like so many, bought into Obama's rhetoric and lofty promises of Hope and Change in 2008. Although I disagreed with him on so many key issues, I thought it was a new era, a new time, a new political arena, and I thought he was going to be the one to get America on track. Man was I wrong.

    4 years later, I see that his tenure as President has been nothing but a failure. I'm not someone that believes he is just crumbling America because he hates America, rather I think he's tried everything he thinks will work.. and it isn't. As Romney said, "he's out of ideas, and out of time."

    I think he's tried his social experiment on America, and I believe it's failed. From Obamacare, to supporting gay marriage and no longer defending the law of the land (DOMA), and to supporting government funded abortions - he has to go.

    His economic policies have obviously failed as well. Unemployment still sky high.. Gas prices still skyrocketing.. America lost it's AAA credit rating.. What's next?!

    Now that I've made the case against Barack Obama (as an ex-supporter.. yes, it's amazing what four years of Obama can do to someone).. Allow me to make the case for Mitt Romney.

    Mitt Romney - Businessman, Religious leader, Governor.. Why is he the right choice to beat Obama? While I admit that Mitt Romney wasn't my first choice, he is my 100% choice now. Here's why - listed in importance to me..

    #1. He's for defending our laws and upholding marriage as an institution between a man and a woman (DOMA).
    #2. He's for protecting innocent life by repealing Roe V. Wade and letting the states decide abortion laws.. and he's also for cutting ANY government funding that goes to killing innocent life.
    #3. He doesn't want to cut our military at such a volatile time.
    #4. He's a businessman. We need someone that knows a thing or two about running something and how to get businesses doing business again.
    #5. He'll be a strong ally of Israel.. and may even make a couple trips over there.. (ahem, Obama, ahem..)
    #6. He's for repealing Obamacare and letting the states decide their own health care laws, like he did in Mass.
    #7. He'll protect the second amendment and won't tour the world making apologies for America.

    Just my top 7.. I know he isn't perfect.. but when we compare him to Obama.. There's no contest.. :eusa_whistle:

    Romney 2012!

    The whole 1st half of your post has nothing to do with Mitt, and even while praising him you still couldn't help but take jabs at Obama.

    All part of comparing and contrasting. I admit that he may not have been the best pick of the field, but he's by far the best pick of the field now.

    I see no significant diffrence between an Obama presidency and a Romney one, however Im glad to see a positive thread instead of the constant negitive ones.

    While I do not 'support' Romney for President... I certainly do feel he would be better than Obamalama... by how much would be debatable...

    I support a more conservative approach to governance than Romney is bringing to the table

    As do I.. But I feel as if I have no option but to organize and get out the vote for Romney. He's the only choice.. and he does have a lot of good about him. I'm hoping he picks our governor (Mcdonnell) to run with.

    Given the points you've made in support of Romney, there is no way you supported Obama or any Democrat - ever. You lost cred by posting an anti Obama thread and stated in the first sentence it was not going to be an anti Obama thread.

    Troll of the weak, nomination.

    You don't think so? Well, there's really no way to "prove" otherwise, but I used to be the biggest brainwashed Democrat you've ever met. I'd argue with a stop sign and tell it that it said "go".. Plus, I never stated that it wasn't an anti-Obama thread.. I simply listed the reasons I won't vote for Obama.. Then listed the reasons I WOULD be voting Romney.

    Diversion of the week, nomination.

    You're inability to see a difference really doesnt effect the ability of the rest of us to.
