Calling early voters
I voted early, mainly to avoid the rush and long lines on Nov. 6. It was an easy choice on which presidential candidate to vote for. First off Gov. Romney was my governor when I lived in MA, secondly I have watched him flip flop on issues his entire political career, and even more so as he has run as a presidential candidate. Secondly my choice was made easy because gov. Romney has not provided any specifics when it has come to his plans to correct any of the pertinent issues affecting the country, from the economy, jobs, health ins. etc. Romney appears to be the type of candidate that will say whatever he thinks is popular and will gain him votes.
On the other hand President Obama comes across to me as a straight shooter, sincere, takes a firm stand for what he feels is right and best for the country. He appears to have the best interest at heart for all classes of Americans. And he seems to have a very good grasp on the pulse of foreign affairs. Finally his family commitment and values come across strong and make a good example for others. Most of all President Obama does not flip flop on his opinions or the issues he is tackling.
