Truth is many people are just sick and tired of Obama and his politics. They want him out of office, but I ask them is Romney really a better alternative???? Truth is both candidates are just different shades of the same color except I would say Obama is more implicit and Romney is more explicit. My father told me that he would be voting for Romney this time. I asked him why and he said, "if Obama wins then it would simply be more of the same failed policies except things will continue to deteriorate at the same pace, however, if Romney wins perhaps things will deteriorate at a faster pace".
When I asked for his reasoning he said, "I feel maybe what we need is for things to go from bad to worse quickly, so that people can begin to wake up and start paying more attention to the important things (like what's going on in politics) and stop paying attention to garbage (reality tv shows etc.)". So his rationale is that it will take an entire collapse of the system in order for people to wake up, which by then, I believe it will be a bit too late.

In an interview in the US Romney talked of how he worries about the security and public service strikes in the UK that could hurt the Olympics, doubting the Games' success. He turns up in Britain, stands outside Downing Street and declares how impressed he is with the organisation and how we in England are set up for a great Games.
The English media certainly picked up on it, portraying him as a complete buffoon - rightly so.
I am still astounded that the American people could let this man anywhere near an office of Government. Shocking.

There are only a couple reasons why people like romney.
1. He is republican and they are republican. Most dont really know what republicans stand for nowadays, but white, southern, country, pickup truck drivin christians must be republicans. thats just how it is.
2. Hes white. The fact is, a huge majority of "white" people are still racist and dont like a black guy in office. Thats just real life. Dont feel like debating that fact.
3. Brainwashed by the tv.
I ask romney supports all the time why they like him, and only one out of A LOT actually said something to do with policies/ideas. 90% doesnt know what he stands for.

Romney seems to say the wrong thing all the time. I just do not get it. Surely he has a staff that helps him avoid saying stupid things they know will end up getting picked up by the press. How does he keep doing stuff like this?
