I am totally not happy with my choices for president but I don't want to not vote or waste my vote. Is anyone else feeling this way? What are you going to do?

I am not really happy with either candidate.

I think Romney is totally out of touch with the middle class.  Any policies that he enacts would only protect and benefit the one percent wealthy and large businesses. 

I think Obama is more in touch with the middle class, but lacks the ability to do much. Perhaps his hands are tied in some ways, I don't know. I do think no matter who is in the presidential office, they won't be able to fix the economy.  Unemployment will continue to get worse as more and more businessees outsource jobs overseas.

Romney will be worse than Bush was.  Taxes need to be increased, plain and simple; spending cuts alone will never shrink our deficit.  And taxes need to be increased, ESPECIALLY, on the wealthy as most Dems would like to do.

Obama gave in too much to the GOP; i'd much prefer a lefter candidate.  Still, if anyone left of Obama were now pres, Romney's chances of beating that person would be greater.  So I'll settle for Obama.....despite his accepting Wall Street money in 2008, despite his keeping Geithner and despite his Solyndra connection.  Any GOP candidate, including Romney, would be much worse in those respects; in fact, this time around, Wall Street is donating much more to the GOP candidates.  Anyone who votes GOP must  love big bank bailouts!

We need to get rid of all the corporate and superpac money in politics if we want to live in a county by the people, and for the people.

I'm not a huge fan of either candidate, although I lean conservative. I think what will be happening in the House and Senate will be as or even more important than the presidental election. We're down to two choices for president and most people don't actually like either. But if we can get enough representation in the House and Senate, those candidates can steer or push the president along a bit at least. It's going to be a bumpy road for the next decade or so.

I just don't see how we could get any worse than Obama, it's been four years of failure. I mean, I think any of Romney's kid's would do a better job.

And now, with the attacks on our embassys, Obama has made us look so weak. He's doing terrible harm to this country. Romney made a strong statement supporting our freedoms, while our State Dept puts out some kind of an apology for free speech.  They can't even agree on whether or not Libya is a ally or not.
