It is truly sad that Governor Romney was selected to lead the party. He appears to be out of touch with the rest of us. I cannot vote for a man who asks to lead while he squirrels his millions of dollars in off-shore accounts and pays 14% on the rest. He would keep the wealthy paying a minimal tax rate while his partner Rep Ryan proposes to balance the budget by neutering Medicare, Social Security and other programs. These wealthy folks are the ones dependent on the government for their special tax breaks far greater than those with the greatest need. So count me a Republican for Obama.

President Obama will be the first Democrat that I have ever voted for for president since registering Republican after college in 1980 so I could vote for Ronald Reagan. The GOP is now a party of extremists who have successfully squeezed out the voices of those of us who are center-right. We don't need to redefine the meaning of “rape.” We need to redefine what it means to be a Republican. Obama will move us "forward." Romney will move us backwards!

President Obama has been impeded by ideologues of my own party, making him unable to do the things needed to get this economy on solid ground. Moreover, he has demonstrated the rare gifts of a thoughtful Commander-in-Chief, and as a military retiree I appreciate all he has done for the men and women of our Armed Forces, and, importantly, for their families as well.

About nine months ago, I started researching in earnest on what I had been told about Obama and discovered to my chagrin Republicans were being lied to about Obama by Republican members of Congress, the RNC, and longtime leaders of the GOP, not to mention conservative pundits and Fox News. Research snowballed after that and I began to slowly realize that what we had been told about Obama was mostly lies to fit the GOP narrative to make him a one-term President.

I’d like to thank President Obama for the last 4 years working to save us from a certain financial cliff, getting us out of Iraq, helping to protect the environment, and promoting the ‘small government’ get-out-of-my-life social issues that I believe are important.

I am a 62 year old white guy. I served in the Vietnam war, I have paid my taxes, and I pretty much kept my mouth shut until a radical right wing with a big mouth and an empty brain showed up. The Republican party has basically become anti-everything. Also, a few billionaries and millionaires have taken over the party, and these men have swayed peoples minds for the worst. Koch industries has, in many cases, ruined the environment-- our clean air, or lakes and rivers and streams-- for the sake of profit.
