I'm sorry, but I fail to see how a candidate who has constantly outspent others on ads in the media is actually not the one who is bribing the media with the money. Both candidates use their money to besmear each other, don't be a narrow minded fool and think only Obama does it.

The extent of the lie's that Obama has been doing? That is the thing that Peeves me off...

I don't think either should be elected, but out of the two, I would pick Romney. Just because a president is going to do everything he can to get reelected in his first term, (more bills that make people happy) but I don't trust politicians. Part of their job description is lying and good liers can get past lie detector tests, so there isn't much reason to trust them. But i will concede that there are politicians who don't lie, but it is hard to tell them apart.

Sometimes it's easy. Look at who hasn't changed their views much and keep doing what they say they will, such as Ron Paul or Daniel Inouye.

Here's some simple pros and cons!

Obama
Pros: Genuinely wants to save America and bring it back onto its feet, and is trying all he can to do precisely that.
Cons: Is a little awkward and struggling to succeed, a little inexperienced and didn't seem all that ready to be a president. Going the right direction, but nobody's sure if he'll actually succeed.

Romney
Pros: Has the support, funds, and business experience to save America.
Cons: But is just out to push for selfish republican and religious agendas, and will most likely **** things up worse for the people while making the so-called "holy men" and corporations fatter and richer.

So here's your choices:

Moral president with uncertain success

or

Immoral president with higher certainty of success

Myself, I'd rather America die free than live enslaved to greed and selfishness.

How does the rich getting richer lead to a higher success rate?

For the country itself, not for the people. USA could survive the debt and regain power while the common people starve and scrap for pennies thanks to Romney and Co's love for outsourcing. Of course, at that point, the people will rebel, raid the White House, and eat the fatcats alive for it.

Please explain how Romney is immoral? And, for that matter, How Obama is moral...

Obama
Pros: Good speaker, makes people feel whatever he wants them to feel.
Cons: lies a ton. Obama says stuff, and then proceeds to do whatever he wants. Doesn't hold to many of his promises. (Don't complain that he has had no support from the house. He had democrats at the beginning. Also Both Bush and Clinton had the same problem and they still managed to do stuff.)

Romney
Pros: He is very concerned for America, as well as a good Businessman with surprisingly high morals. He is, for the most part, honest. He is charitable, and genuinely kind.
Cons: doen't take personal attacks well, as well as other things that i will say later, i am out of time.

Romney, honest and charitable? Surely you have heard of his antics at Bain Capital and his oddly desperate attempts to cover it up? As well as his multiple insensitive comments on wealth and poor people? He has slipped up repeatedly that he has money on the brain while putting on a pretty good charade that he has a bleeding heart for everyone. I hope those "morals" you're alluding to doesn't mean all the pro-Christian stuff like bashing Planned Parenthood and encouraging the Transvaginal Ultrasound Bill?

Do give a list and sources on Obama's lies? As well as which promises you are alluding to? Hopefully you're not referring to that ridiculous birth certificate drivel.

I will admit that he is somewhat inexperienced and found it difficult to achieve what he planned than he had originally thought, but that does not make him a liar.
