    You know, i'm reading all of these post and i here what you all are saying Mitt cares about you or i because of his belief and Obama had 4 yrs to clean up all the junk Bush left for him. At the end of the day it is you who have to answer for your action, it is you who put your faith in a MEN. Listen, search youself (all of you) if at the end of the day you can honestly say Our president did not fight hard for me, that yes it was his fault that that million of american lost there job,and not hold ourselve responsible for trusting these men with our money(401k,investement,fruad loans,Wall Streeet) Banks who stolen our homes and our dreams if you believe it was the president fault, then please please vote for Mitt Romney. If you serched yourself and honestly believe that our president has been trying , that he deserve a 2nd chance to finally see his plan take effect(after playing clean up for 4yrs), that our econmoy is truely starting to turn around then vote for Obama.We are the people who entrust these banks, those investment company,loan office with our money, our substains ,our homes, and our investment. It us who trust man instead of god. Pray before you vote and stand confident in your desion. But know that god has the finally say so!!

    When Romney spoke today of the struggling single MOM, it revealed again his hypocrisy. Earlier in the campaign he referred to this very single MOM as one of the 47% Americans who are victims and made uncaring reference to to poor people whom he does not have to worry about. How come now he loves the 47% victims, poor people, and the middle- class? I am stumped by his forked tongue double talk & Romnesia.

    with 6 days left to vote, why is everyone acting like the race is so tight, actually, Obama is ahead in every poll. If he doesnt win this election and get another 4 years to fix the mess BUSH created, I will never Vote or even pay attention to Politics again..Simply because It doesnt matter what the poor and Hard Working People want. It matters More to The rich folk to Keep there money then to grow as a nation.. And Message to Donald Trump..SHUT UP! u can Donate 5 mil to someone to find dirt on Obama But you cant Donate 2$ to a Poor Black/White or Hispanic Kid that hasnt ate in 3 days...SHUT UP and go fly your jet fool

    and another point, CNN polls are based on More Republicans then Democrats also..So in there eyes its a dead heat. But in all actuality. Its really not even close. I know for a fact that more ppl in the state of FL will vote Obama then Romney. And romney cannot win this election without FL nor OHIO..Good Try Romney.. But your lies wont get you into office this year! see you and your lies back in 4 yrs

    Just Voted for OBAMA-BIDEN and proud of it.
    As an Independent, I think Obama and Biden worked very hard for last four years to take us out of the deep hole and put it on track to go forward again. On the other hand Romney is one of the worst Republicans have ever nominated. Romney is now trying to be The NEW Counterfeit Obama. For some reason I don't find Romney trustworthy. The country is finally moving forward after it was destroyed inside out by Bush/Cheney. We can't afford another set of clowns now.

    Polls are not trusted any more. You have to search into the forums and twitters to find out what is going on. Except for Fox, every other forums and twitters are showing most of people favor to Obama with nice comments about him. That is why I feel confident about Obama winning than ever before.
