    Thanks for repeating, I couldn't read it.

    Agree with you, had the republicans stayed in office, I have no doubt we'd be in a full blown depression now.

    I'm not an American but I do follow international news and politics and I think President Obama has substance. Sometimes its quite sickening when you have someone trying to do right and everyone else just jumps all over the little 'mistakes/misunderstanding' and make a mountain of a mole hill. Thinking you can do a better job and actually doing it is a VAST difference.

    It's also why I've stopped voting for Republicans in general. The obstructionism, the lies, the attacks, stepping on the poor to give to the rich, the outright racism.......they would rather take the country down than give President Obama a legislative victory.

    That tells me all I need to know.

    I like your manifesto! I'm supporting him too. I think he is the best choice for uniting our country, and despite not being perfect, he is a lot better on the international stage than Romney. I'm afraid there will be WWIII if MR is president because he as much as encouraged Isreal to use nuclear weapons on Iran--not good policy!

    In case you can't read it:

    Why I support Obama---

    1. For 30 years I've heard politicians talking about health care reform, and he's the first one to do something about it. The Affordable Care Act removes restrictions on pre-existing conditions, makes health care more affordable for small businesses, raises the age at which children can be on their parents' policies, remopves lifetime caps, and more. With the possible exception of insurance execs, who would not want these changes?

    2. He ended the war in Iraq and is drawing the war in Afghanistan to a close. Like he said he would.

    3. He thinks women should have access to free preventative health care. Why is this still an issue?

    4. He believes in equality for all people and signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to help women get equal pay for equal work and the repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

    5. He is promoting and investing in clean energy jobs. Finally!

    6. He supports education by giving more flexibility to No Child Left Behind (thank you!) and my making college aid more available.

    7. He thinks millionaires and billionaires should pay their fair share of taxes like the rest of us. Really, this is a no brainer.

    8. Despite inheriting one of the worst economic messes since the Great Depression, h addd 2.6 million private sector jobs to our economy, and indications are that the economy are slowly improving. To anyone who thinks it's been too slow - don't you know you can't turn the Titantic around in a day?

    I voted for him before and I will vote for him again!
