BUT, I still think he'll do a better job that Obama. Quite honestly, I know in my heart, I WOULD DO A BETTER JOB than Obama- and I'm no where near qualified. If Romney does get in, that's step 1 in my eyes. GET OBAMA OUT. Now, if Romney wins- who says he has to stay in office more than 4 years? The important thing to remember is that Obama will be GONE and he cannot run for re-election again. That's all I'm saying. We can pick and choose who we like the most and who we want to win all day... but when it comes voting time, we need to band together and vote Republican for our NATION. This is OUR COUNTRY. I think Romney will get the picture if he wins the election... there's going to be alot expected of him. I think he's smart enough to realize that. Now, will he actually do it? Who knows. I know one thing though, we have a better shot at getting back on our feet again as a country under Romney than we do as Obama. Like you said Hunt- "Obama is slamming this country down fast, but Romney will bring this country down slowly" Well at least it's an improvment. I know that's bad to say, but comon.
A "no-vote" is the same as voting for Obama.
Tator there are a few things from this post i would like to address.
"if Romney wins- who says he has to stay in office more than 4 years?"
To my knowledge, never in history has a party run another candidate, when there party's sitting president is seeking re-election. so the only way we would not get stuck with him for 8 years is if A. he chooses not to run again after 4 years, wich i doubt he would do. or B. he runs again but is beat by a democrat.
"The important thing to remember is that Obama will be GONE and he cannot run for re-election again."
Unfortunately this is not true. yes he would be gone, but there would be nothing stopping him from running again in 2016.
"Like you said Hunt- "Obama is slamming this country down fast, but Romney will bring this country down slowly"
As i sead in my post, im not sure this is a good thing. if Obama were to try to hard to bring us down people would rebel. but if Romney dose it nice and slow, we would sit back and let it happen. then in 4 years we would just get stuck with another democrat like Obama.
For me, if Romney wins the Republican ticket, his choice for VP would be my deciding factor on how, or if, i will vote in the presidential race.
