Somebody asked me why I would vote for President Obama, and here was my reply:
Obama said he would get "don't ask, don't tell" repealed, and he did. He said that wherever Osama bin Laden was, that we would get him, even if it was in another country, and he did. He said on election night in Chicago in 2008 that the path back would be hard and steep, and he is right. He said he would wind down the war in Iraq, and he did.
Did he do everything he said he would do? No. Do I agree with everything he says or does? No. Is there more positive than negative in his job performance? Yes.
He wants to invest in future clean energy sources. Did every investment pay off? No. But if you don't start somewhere, you will not get anywhere. No one is perfect!
He wants the more well-to-do to share a greater burden tax-wise, so that the middle class and below can have a greater chance to move up the economic ladder.
