Who Did You Endorse for President? Barack Obama or Mitt Romney

We asked Patch readers last week to share their endorsements and invited them to blog about it. Here's a round up of what YOU said.

Last week we asked you, the Patch readers, to share your political opinions and you certainly answered. 

Our story asking for your comments in reaction to three of the state's major newspaper endorsements for presidential candidates attracted more than 400 comments. And in our unscientific poll, 56 percent of you endorsed Mitt Romney for president.

As promised, here's a round up of political blogs posted to Patch sites in Ohio over the last week. Don't see a blog from your town? It's not too late to have your say. And it's easy to blog. 

Just go to your home Patch site and click on the "start a blog" link under the editor's top four stories of the day (on the mid left side of the page).  

Remember, a blog doesn't have to be War and Peace. Some of our comments are already meaty enough to live in their own blogs.

Romney will win, and this is why: Obama has been an economic disaster the last four years, and this Benghazi disgrace is completely unacceptable... This country does not reward failure and dishonesty out of the White House... http://obamalies.net/list-of-obamas-failures http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/18/president-obamas-taxpayer-backed-green-energy-failures/ http://lacrossetribune.com/news/opinion/patti-schmidt-list-of-obama-s-failures-is-long/article_7a139146-fec2-11e1-8e81-0019bb2963f4.html http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/08/obamas-foreign-policy-failures-catalogued.php http://www.facebook.com/notes/republican-security-council/the-top-10-obama-flip-flops-by-ari-fleischer/171275079638338 http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/nilegardiner/100083104/the-u-turn-president-barack-obama-top-ten-flip-flops/ http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/50657 http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/25/CBS-Busts-Obama--and-Itself-Hidden-60-Minutes-Clip-Proves-White-House-Lied-About-Benghazi You see, it's easy to run on a slogan, like Obama did in 2008... Hope and change, baby... It's much harder to do once you have a record that can be reviewed... He also said in 2008 that if he didn't get the job done in four years, that it would be a one term deal... Well, he hasn't delivered, so time to let him keep his word... Romney/Ryan 2012

Obama and his campaign have been pretty loose with the facts, and the bailout is no exception. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/23/fact-check-text-of-2008-romney-op-ed-debunks-obamass-auto-bailout-attack/ And if you don't want to read the entire article, all you really need to do is read this Romney quote: In the op-ed, Romney said he thought the government should play a role in handling a managed bankruptcy. “The American auto industry is vital to our national interest as an employer and as a hub for manufacturing,” Romney wrote in the op-ed. “A managed bankruptcy may be the only path to the fundamental restructuring the industry needs. It would permit the companies to shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs. The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure car buyers that their warranties are not at risk.” “In a managed bankruptcy, the federal government would propel newly competitive and viable automakers, rather than seal their fate with a bailout check,” Romney added. That doesn't sound like a guy bent on liquidated the auto industry, which has been the Obama claim... More Obama lies...

Obviously Obama has done very well especially considering what he got when he started (aka The Bush depression) and the recalcitrant republicans in blocking him at every step even to help the country out minimally (traitors). End result is that we are not losing 500K jobs per month from the Bush 8 years, DOW, S&P & other indicies are up, housing is starting to form a bottom, bin Laden is dead and all this with the republicans as truants! LOL Sore losers! 4 more years for Obama? Hell no. 40 more years for Obama! .

I agree with you A. Four years ago I observed something that I've never observed before. The Wall Street banks completely melted down. Our housing market totally collapsed. I never thought that in 4 years time: "Happy days would be here again" With our disadvantage vis a vis the cheap global labor market, I doubt that 4 years from now "Happy days will be hear again". The depression lasted 11 years and only ended due to the WWII stimulus. I'm hunkered down for a tough long road. Recovering from economic ruin does not pay respect to America's addiction to instant gratification.
