I was just wondering if the elections in the United States was happening today who would you vote for, the current President Obama or the Republican Mitt Romney? I live in Puerto Rico so I can't vote but if I could I would vote to keep Obama. Mainly because I truly believe he has tried to do as much as possible even though the republican congress is not working with him to accomplish more for our country. Romney is only for the rich and could really care less about the poor or middle class. How could he since he is rich and has never known what it is to do without. I believe if Romney was to become President we would end up in another war and the poor and middle class will be taxed more then ever. What would be your pick and why?

Obviously I do not have a vote but I do know that there was a concerted effort by the pharmaceutical and oil companies to destroy Mr. Obama. They were determined for his programmes not to go through to benefit the people. I have only started to watch Mr. Romney and I do not like what I see to be honest.It is the same out here. The rich man who may own a large business only pays the same income tax as his secretary. It will be very unpopular but it has to stop Our new Prime Minister is a woman and she is so very strong. We have to change our tax policy. Interesting discussion

Thanks, Yes, I agree, if you're rich you should be paying more taxes, period. I only wish that Hillary Clinton was running again. I seriously don't think the US will ever get on track until we have a female President. However, never Sarah Palin.

we have a saying out here that when the USA sneezes then we get pneumonia. we are so dependant on tourism. Therefore, we follow and support persons who run for President in your country. I was a supporter of Hilary Clinton.I read something by Condoleeza Rice recently and she said what a magnificent job Hilary Clinton had done during this tenure. I so agree and I was in favour of her over Mr. Obama. I honestly have no admiration for Sarah Palin either.

Hi lenin, I live in Canada so of course I don't have a vote, but I've followed the campaigns and have seen no one among the Republicans that I could vote for. With a majoritity in both house, they've done nothing but oppose Obama, who has some good ideas if he had Congress and the Senate behind him. He's not perfect, but certainly better than anyone the Republicans can come up with. Blessings.

I totally agree with you. Congress is the problem that this country is in the mess it is. Instead of working things out with President Obama they oppose everything he wants to accomplish. I hope for the sake of America that he will be relected.

Yes after eight years of a Republican in office he left a big mess for Obama to clean up. Like he said while compaigning in 2008 it will take more then four years to clean up Bush's mess. I think on a whole though getting rid of keys individual who were under Bid Laden, and Bid Laden himself was one of many great accomplishments. If the Republican Congress would only let him do his job more efficently alot more could get done. As long as there is a Republican Congress they will never come together to get the US back on track, unfortunaltely.

If it was between Obama and Romney, I would vote for Romney. If it was between Obama and an old shoe, I'd vote for the old shoe. Anyone but Obama. Romney doesn't NOT care about the poor. You have probably heard that he said he doesn't care about the poor but if you could hear that remark in context, he said he was not concerned about the very poor because they have a safety net and if that safety net is broken he will fix it. He went on to say that he doesn't care about the rich because they're all set--he's concerned most about the middle class that is losing ground every month and struggling not to sink into poverty. When you hear accusations like Romney doesn't care about the poor, you should look up the speech the quote was taken from. I have heard both parties misquoted or taken out of context in the most reprehensible ways in order to make a point for the other party. I would have preferred Herman Cain but they were so afraid of his ideas and creativity that they ruined his candidacy. I don't think Romney would be the best choice but I really don't want Gingrich. That leaves Santorum--I have my reservations about him but would vote for him if he got the nomination. Anyone but Obama, anyone or anything.

Well we totally don't agree on this at all. I think Romney is living in a fantasy world and really does not know what is going on in the world today. Yes we do agree with Gingrich that would be scary for all. I will hope that Obama wins if he doesn't I think it will just get worse for the United States.

I don't live in the States so I couldn't vote but if I had to choose between them both then it would surely be Obama mainly because I am not familiar with Mitt Romney at all. Whereas we do know a little about Obama....
