    Don't need to convince the base, just the center, your vote is not the one anyone will be chasing this year, try not to feel irrelevant.

    GDP has been growing since 2009.
    The stock market has doubled since 2009.
    Americans net worth is up $9 trillion dollars since 2009.
    3.2 million private sector jobs have been created since 2009.
    Auto sales are up.
    Retail sales are up.
    Home sales are up.
    Unemployment is down.

    GM was saved, and is now the number one automaker in the world.

    Bin Laden and Gaddafi are dead, and we are out of Iraq.

    Obama has done a very good job.

    Besides Ron Paul or Gary Johnson, Obama is miles ahead of the Republican field.

    Seriously, Republicans are freaks or idiots, or perhaps freakin' idiots.

    I don't know how a person of value could call themselves a Republican nowadays.

    Think about it for a minute, this statement works for both parties, it is useless for us hardcore partisans to think our opinions matter in the election. It is the low information fence sitters who both parties will be breaking their ass to convince this year. They have us, they want the people who don't really care that much about politics. We should be careful when judging public opinion to remember that those much more numerous people think differently than us news junkies.

    President Obama's term so far stands in stark contrast to the terms of his predecessor. He has made the whole thrust of his presidency helping the working and middle class, where his predecessor concentrated only on helping the very wealthy. His predecessor let the man that masterminded the murder of 3000 Americans on American soil get away for seven years, in spite of his 'dead or alive' bluster. President Obama stated that he would see Bin Laden killed or captured, and the same for the rest of his henchmen, and has done just that.

    The bailout of the American auto industry has resulted the savings of millions of jobs, the loss of which might easily have tipped this nation into the Second Great Republican Depression. We are now on the upswing, and the economy is starting to perform well. On the whole, given the starting point, President Obama has easily earned a second term.

    Obama is not miles ahead. The GOP is just backwards and defunct.

    As I said, what decent person would call themselves a Republican? Republicans are a disgrace.

    Obama is miles ahead in showing how much abuse of the constitution a president can get away with while his supporters sit there grinning and saying that it doesn't matter because it is a Democrat doing it, not a Republican.

    The ends don't justify the means.
