    Independent Voter Defects


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Independent voter MelissaF (who voted for Obama in 2008) was motivated by last night's State of the Union address to support Obama's re-election campaign. She says she's strongly in support of Obama's call to investigate and bring prosecution against the lending practices that led up to the housing crisis: 'I would like to see it enforced by everyone using social media everyday to keep it on Obama's table until indictments are made,' she said. 'I would love to see some of these banks go directly to jail and not collect even $200 along the way.'

    I have listened to all sides and after 22 years chosen one. Just note, I have voted for Independents, Republicans, Democrats, and even Libertarians in the past.


    After listening to President Obama's State of the Union Address, I have decided to change parties and I tell you my reasons why.

    Quote of SOTU 2012:


    "And tonight, I am asking my Attorney General to create a special unit of federal prosecutors and leading state attorneys general to expand our investigations into the abusive lending and packaging of risky mortgages that led to the housing crisis. This new unit will hold accountable those who broke the law, speed assistance to homeowners, and help turn the page on an era of recklessness that hurt so many Americans."~President Obama
