I didn't vote for Obama the first time based on his lack of experience more than anything else, and I didn't vote for him the second time (I'm pretty sure....) because I didn't approve of some of his policies. But if you want me to say I was crazy, madly, deeply, passionate for a Mitt victory, I can't do that.

    Oh, and if YOU want to tell me who YOU voted for, and STATE YOUR REASONS WHY..... Well, I don't give a shit. :)
    Thank you Linda ...

    Now that you have mastered the "S" word ... (my goodness!) ... try the "B" word on for size, and see how it fits.

    Back atcha, babe. Seriously, though, I can't remember the last time I enthusiastically voted for a president. Decades. In the immortal words of W.C. Fields, "I never vote for. I always vote against."

    We're in agreement here, at least about the last 2 elections. I liked Bush (both father and son) and proudly voted for them. I didn't care that much for McCain nor Romney, but held my nose and voted. I liked Romney more than McCain. It is a sad commentary that we always seem to have to choose the lesser of two evils.

    Or the evil of two lessers. I think the system has evolved to a point where really quality people refuse to get involved with it. All those debates, all the scrutiny and nitpicking for at least two YEARS before the election - who wants that, unless they are incredibly self-involved and ego driven? I don't know the solution to this. The Brits manage to call and have an election within eight weeks or so, but that's because they already have a party succession structure in place - and the Republicans already do that. It's how the GOP ends up with such uninspiring candidates a lot of the time - because it's the guy's "turn".

    The reason for all of the obsessive campaigning is that the stakes are so high. The president presides over a $3.6 trillion enterprise that controls increasingly vast swathes of our nation. That kind of power is a huge lure to unscrupulous power-hungry narcissists, such as Obama, while the process repels those who are not self-absorbed power freaks who have anything questionable in their backgrounds. The last president that I can recall who saw Washington as the problem, and made it his mission to get as much federal power out of our lives as possible was Reagan, and before him, Coolidge.
