Rebuttal - alyburns' (aka sideburns & alyjude) Hiding Place
If you spoke faster than David Hewlett you’d travel back in time: Michael Shanks
I felt good on inauguration day. I felt good when Bin Laden was killed (in a "thank God at least he's gone" kind of way, not a blood-thirsty way). I felt good with the stimulus. I felt good when DADT was finally ended. I felt good when both Biden and the President came out for gay marriage. And women's rights. I could go on, but it's enough to answer the statement that, "...voting for a President...." was NOT the only time I felt good about casting my vote for Obama.

Just saying.

I'm voting for him again. I like what he has to say and the things he's accomplished. I blame congress for the things he hasn't accomplished, as they 'cockblocked' him constantly. This new republican trend is scaring me. I feel as if they are attacking me for being a woman, just as they are attacking some of my friends for being gay.

They even make me feel embarrassed for Christianity. I refuse to following them any longer and will only follow my faith.

That's my biggest 'loss'

my faith. They're hijacking that too, just as they did with the Republican Party. They're perverting my faith into an all white world, with only one religion, one type of family; a narrow world no one would want to live in. :(

Right there with you, Aly. I will vote for Obama again, too.

Obama Biden 2012, baby!

I'm proud of my President every day, actually. Yes, there are things about his administration I don't like, there always are, but there's a whole lot less 'don't like' when it comes to Barack Obama than there is when it comes to Romney & Ryan. They scare me.

And that's the biggest difference

All these so-called Republicans are willing to vote for a piece of cardboard who couldn't stick to his guns if he had one to his back, whose been so busy trying to BE President, he's left behind any principles he had, even though they don't even like him, just to get a black man out of office? And an "American" in? It's ludicrous.

And to make us all feel worse: 78% of America is white and Republicans are only 3% fewer than Democrats, but Independents have risen - and leaning right. Combine those facts with the new voter suppression laws and Obama has a bleak few months left in the White House. :(
