QuoteOriginally posted by: farmerIf Obama wins, it will be a bittersweet victory for his supporters who end up collecting their free rusty-scalpel healthcare while living in this egg carton:This may be the natural state of human beings, so I cannot say I particularly care if they all die of tuberculosis.Yeah! Time travel. There's nothing Obama can't do.

So in this year's presidential election, will she support Mitt Romney? Not a chance. "Romney's going to help the upper class," said Harris, who earns $28,000 a year as activities director of a Lynchburg senior center. "He doesn't know everyday people, except maybe the person who cleans his house." She'll vote for Obama, she said: "At least he wasn't brought up filthy rich."

ReutersI wonder what an activities director of a Lynchburg senior center actually does? Do you think she has short hours? Say 10-15 per week - it's be an okay deal then. Much as I don't like romney (who I believe was not brought up filthy rich) Obama is just as bad - in some sense worse, for all his pandering about the common man, he's an elitist - at least with romeny you know apriori he's a selfish elitist, he doesn't hide it. Honestly a great country like the USA deserves a higher quality person than Romney or Obama

As surely as dogs bite men and not the other way around, people who live on cushy government cash - such as those who get paid$28,000 plus benefits to pass out bouncy balls three hours a day at a "senior center" - will vote for Obama. This includes black people who are more religiously Christian than most. As to whom she voted for in the past, that is ridiculous speculation, since nobody asked her whom she was supporting when Bush was actually running. And "all the evidence" is that Obama is an atheist. But that is okay, young people are allowed to write articles too.

QuoteOriginally posted by: EscapeArtist999Honestly a great country like the USA deserves a higher quality person than Romney or ObamaBased on the degree of polarisation in US politics, where "Moderate" is considered an insult, and based on the behaviour of the left and right over the last decade, I'd say that they have the candidates they well and truly deserve.

Difficult to rationalise that anyone really deserves Romney. Except for Mrs. Romney

For profit.Though in your case, I'd end up in the red when the cat owners sue me for selling them toxic catfood.
