A conservative Republican, tells Reddit in a AMA why he is supporting Obama in 2012, over Romney, he says: Read it all here Reddit AMA. (AMA= Ask Me Anything)

"I completely support Obamacare and the healthcare reform that comes along with it. There are parts I disagree with, but I think it is a great step in the right direction. I have watched many programs on television featuring Obama (shows in the military channel and discovery channel), and I think he is a great person in general, and is doing his best for this country. He’s a good president, and strives to make America better as a whole, rather than just focusing on one political party. He risked his presidency with the assault on Bin Laden, and he knew that beforehand. I’m not here to discuss the assault itself and the political can of worms that comes along with it, but am here to present Mr. Obama’s willingness to risk his presidency to do what he thought was best. This speaks volumes of his character. I fully support him in this next election, and would love to have dinner or a drink with him. He has my utmost respect.

Mittens, on the other hand, has no idea what he is doing, and is running for president simply because he can. He thrives off of the sense of power it gives him, and uses his vast amount of wealth as a financial and life cushion. This essentially allows him to attempt to do whatever the heck he wants to do, including running for president, and the views and thoughts that accompany that. He wants the prestige, recognition, and power that being president would bring to him, and yet he is too much of a slime ball to be anything but bad for this country. He is not president material, because I believe that his heart, mind, and wallet are too tainted and stuffed to serve the American people. He would not view the Presidency as a service, he would view it as power. Obama, on the other hand, is actively doing everything he can to serve the American people. Please remember, everything that I typed in this paragraph is my opinion and view, and I am not trying to present it as fact.”

President Barack Obama on Thursday rebutted his Republican critics, like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who have accused him of having a “politics of envy.”

“Do we want to keep these tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans or do we want to keep investing in everything else?” he said at an event in Las Vegas. “We can’t do both.”

Obama said that those making over a million dollars a year should pay a tax rate of at least 30 percent, his so-called Buffett rule, and noted that Bill Gates had a similar view.

"The fierce fight for the Republican presidential nomination, which is likely to see Mitt Romney emerge as the party’s candidate, is offering an arsenal of potential ammunition for the Democrats. As the bitter struggle has unfolded, an array of social conservatives has lined up to oppose the more moderate former Massachusetts governor, while Democratic strategists are drawing up potential lines of attack to use against Romney.”

Raw Story: Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore said Tuesday that young voters did not turn out for 2010 elections because “they don’t suffer fools” and “because they don’t take bullshit.”

“You promise them something, you’d better do it, or they’re going to call you on it” he said during a speech at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue. “They don’t like hypocrites. They don’t like somebody who doesn’t follow through.”

“We need young people and their rebellion and their ability not to go along with B.S.,” Moore continued. “And they weren’t going to go along with President Obama’s B.S. He let them down, they stayed home. He wants to keep letting them down for the next year? They’ll stay home.”
