*sigh* One can only hope, but the fact of the matter is - it's going to be an extremely close race. No matter what happens, though, a huge percentage of the country will be disappointed either way.

I've had friends who are saying that they believe our country is close to a civil war due to how divided everyone's grown over these political issues. I have to admit - I believe that they're accurate with that. It really does seem like it's only a matter of time. :neutral:

Dumb Mitt Romney Quotes:

Spoiler: show
1. "Corporations are people, my friend… of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings, my friend." —Mitt Romney to a heckler at the Iowa State Fair who suggested that taxes should be raised on corporations as part of balancing the budget (August 2011)

2. "When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go, exactly, there's no -- and you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that. It's a real problem." –Mitt Romney, suggesting it would be a good idea to crack a window at 35,000 feet, Beverly Hills fundraiser, Sept. 22, 2012

4. "I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there." —Mitt Romney (January 2012)

5. "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. ... My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." -Mitt Romney, in leaked comments from a fundraiser in May 2012

8. "My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico... and had he been born of, uh, Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this. But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino." -Mitt Romney, in leaked comments from a Florida fundraiser, May 17 2012

9. "It's hard to know just how well [the 2012 London Olympics] will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting. The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and customs officials, that obviously is not something which is encouraging." –Mitt Romney, insulting Britain on the eve of the Olympics by suggesting the country is not ready, NBC News interview, July 25, 2012

Sometimes, words just aren't enough. And yet, he's still neck and neck with a man who actually can form a complete sentence without sounding like a bafoon. <_<

pretty disgusting how all the republican politicians are trying to tie a conspiracy theory regarding libiya to obama.

i really hope all of you in the states will take your time to research the two candidates for president and use your right to vote.

i'll admit, obama not been the greatest, but romney is not only disgusting, he's a corporate puppet who don't care about anyone except people making 250k or more.

google "romney 47%" plz

To me, US Presidential elections always seem to devolve into a popularity contest between the two figureheads rather than the policies of the two parties. Add on to that the rampant negativity of the campaigning and it's all a bit of a mess really.

@ Spaced - essentially that's what it turns into. This pointless squabbling isn't what I want to see any head of state doing, regardless of their political agenda. <_<

its more than what spaced said. not only is it a mess, it creates division amongst our very population at the grandest level.

dont help that the bulk of republicans think that anyone that dont vote like they do think that those people are drug abusers and sexual deviants who don't believe in God.

anyway, watch this video. pretty funny how whedon says if you want a zombie apocalypse to happen, then vote for romney.

What gets me the most are all the polls...
This poll says Romney is up 2%, another says Obama by 2%.. both within margin of era of 2%..

Then there's the whole electoral college votes... which, I believe the AP says Obama is predicted to have a slight lead..

side note: Anyone check out 43* by Jeff Greenfield? It speculates on what would've happened had Gore become president and not Bush.. My what a different world it says we'd be living in.

In Washington state you can vote by mail, so technically I voted awhile ago (although it starts to get counted today). I voted for Romney with the national election, and for various Washington state specific issues I voted yes for gay marriage, no to charter schools, and I voted for Rob McKenna (republican) for govenor, along with a bunch of other people for various local/state positions.

Voting for Romney is like voting for the guy in the top hat on the Monopoly box.
