    There was no third choice, but there should have been. Obviously, it's the illuminati who have the upper hand, as the one thing that is guaranteed, is that one of their two puppets will be pResident.

    1. The "wars" will continue to kill our kids for corporate profit (not freedom)
    2. The money will still be made out of thin air by banks
    3. Glass-Steagel will not be reinstated
    4. Posse Comitatus will not be reinstated
    5. Miranda rights will not be reinstated
    6. TSA will not be disbanded
    7. The border will still be wide open
    8. The current invasion of our country will continue
    9. The income tax laws will not be properly enforced
    10. The CIA will continue to pretend that Al Qaida isn't the CIA
    11. A real investigation of 9-11 will not happen
    12. Israel will continue to run the United States into bankruptcy and finally local war

    So you see, the upper hand is really held by these clowns' controllers.

    Wake up and smell the Colombian Coffee!

    Obama is going to have a hard time getting people excited to vote for him. While Romney has a very different advantage, people are excited to vote against Obama. That is one of the reasons why Romney has the upper hand in this upcoming election.

    No other President has tried as hard as Obama has to reach out to the opposition. It didn't work because the opposition had no desire to cooperate, even when he offered them bills they themselves had suggested.

    I can't wait for the election in November so we can get a president who is for the country and we all know his background. I am tired of having a fraud sitting in the White House who has a past that doesn't check out when we get people who bother to check it. I don't care if they are a democrat or a republican just so long as they are honest about themselves.

    The facts are out he is the best we have at the moment. We do not want a repeat of the Bush years. Things were terrible. They are improving and let's not retract it We need to be careful. Pay attention and see that there is improvement from what it was. Changing a president at this time would roll back the progress.

    Obama is truly the Dictator in Chief and, as such, is also the Lawbreaker in Chief who apparently thinks he is above the law, all law, and especially the Constitution. The traditional Presidential title of "Commander in Chief" has a whole new meaning under Obama. Another four years of Obama would bury the Constitution and complete the "redistribution" of wealth he unabashedly supports. (Oh, but I imagine his wealth will not be "redistributed" because that would make it difficult for Michelle to enjoy her $4 million dollar vacations in Spain. But wait a minute. One such vacation was at taxpayer expense!) His granting of amnesty to illegal aliens is simply the latest example of his lawlessness. These illegal aliens have been supported by our taxpayer dollars in receiving a free education; now Obama is guaranteeing that they will have further unearned privileges and support that is not being given to young American citizens who can't find a job. And if you doubt that young Americans can't find a job, just look at the statistics or ask the college graduates who are desperately looking for a job, any job, whether it is one for which their degree prepared them or not.

Obama has no chance of being elected. The devastation created by his presidency is universal, except among illegal aliens. He has lost the base of supporters that elected him, and lifelong former Democrats like me will be voting for Romney unless by some fortuitous chance Hilary Clinton is the Democratic presidential nominee. A restoration of the Clinton presidency might restore the economy to the surplus state enjoyed under Clinton, but reelection of Obama will mean the end of the American economy and way of life as we know it. For more information, read _The Amatuer: Obama in the White House_, that is, if you can get the book. It's sold-out in some areas as it is #1 on the bestseller list because Americans are seeking the information necessary to save America from Obama totalitarianism.

    do you suggest Obama hasn't ALIENATED anyone, For whatever reason, Obama has too many enemies to be a good productive President we need right now. Using his Presidential powers best he can to get a few small successes won't do it.

    Can't get enough from Romney to know what he will do, just the republcans face man to carry out the republican objective. Have to wonder how Democrats in Congress are going to treat Romney if he wins.

    Or I would prefer Obama stay in office, but Congress has got to work with the man and govern our country as it is supposed to work.

    No one has the upper hand as far as I can tell, Congress could have the upperhand and that could play out numerous ways if they would realize the situation better and take advantage of it.

    , will it be Congress, the republicans using Romney, or will the Democrats start working with their chosen candidate (is Obama still the one). Who knows who has the upper hand or how it could or should play out and will it play out as it should, if you got all that. Is something of a riddle, our magnificent country that holds so much power. This could be when the anarchists take advantage of the situation as it presents itself, keep your guns handy.

    Canada should be nice this time of year, although the weather will be getting rough up there around election time. Maybe I'll just go to Canada for a long vacation until things get figured out here in the states.

    Gonna piggyback off of you, Wanna. I simply can't answer this question with the limited choices.

    My take is that neither of these pawns have the upper hand. It is their brokers who have the upper hand, no less now than they have had since the tenure of Woodrow Wilson.

    The American people have had enough of not being heard and listened too. The liberals have completely angered the main stream population by the congress and senator not putting obama in check. His consistent executive power grabbs have caused the americans to fight him back, Also the attempt to put the U.S. in harms way of a dictatorship/socialist state is not going to be tolerated. His many attempts to go around congress to pass taxation plots have went unchecked and his arrogance against the Americans is not very Presidential. One last thing is that obama is liable for all the treason acts of his administration. The proof is every where. If you disagree with me...just read the fact of his actions lately. He does'nt have the power to help illegal aliens this way. He went around congress arrogantly... Hes being challenged for that as well. He still has'nt proven where he was born, any of his school records, college records, or his passport used while he was in college, or traveling as a senator. he's a fraud !! till he proves differently....He was issued a grant as a foreign exchange student from Indonesia, thats a fact.....

    Sculptor, OMG! You are still stuck on the old Fox and Friends TeaParty Right Wing Crazy agenda items. Move on! Vote for Romney all you want but please please stop stressing yourself out with the old crazy stuff. President Obama has taken down the archenemy of America (the one who blew up the twin towers) and made it safe for us to travel again. He has made it prideful to drive an American car again by saving Detroit. He has made it so that your kid if you have any will get a good education in this country and can go to college if he/she wants to by getting low cost loans if needed; he has helped many young adults to be healthy by promoting wellness and fitness and teaching them the importance of having health insurance!!! They will pay for their own after they are 26 having learned the value of having it. Obama has also made it wonderful to be an American who has compassion for others and concern for the well being of all. He is a visionary who will win in November. So, I say move on past the old tired Republic rhetoric. GO FORWARD! LOL

    Again, I believe we need to go back in history and see when our country became a truly Socialist nation---that would be during FDR's term, but not for lack of effort before that. EVERY president since has continued on that path. Don't take my word for it. Check out the legislation. It's all there.

    Obama currently has the upper hand. His decision on immigration is one reason. That caught the Republicans way off guard because they have been in a do-nothing mode. The other reasons Obama has the upperhand is because he is looking so presidential at the G20 summit in Mexico; the bullypullpit works when you are in charge. The president is clear and concise and will take a stand on something. Romney doesn't.. You just don't know what he realllly believes. The other reason that I vote for Obama is because despite what everyone says about how bad the economy is, people are still fairly confident in some areas. Look at all the cars bought in May. Millions of Americans purchased cars and took on car notes; the housing industry is pleased that housing starts were up; the stock market is almost 13,000--and Obama will win in the Supreme Court too on healthcare. America is definitely going in the right direction, just not as fast as we all would hope. I don't blame Obama for that. He works harder than any politician I've seen in a long time. Romney on the other hand seems lost out there. All he ever talks about is what Obama does! He has no ideas of his own.

If his October surprise is to decriminalize marijuana many of the unions members who smoke reefers on their lunch breaks up north may vote for Obama even though they know the rest of the countries economy is circling the drain.

    LOL Obama doesn't need the votes of those who don't have any money. That certainly wasn't how the current Fraud-In-Chief was elected last time. If you will check, you will see his financial backing came from the banksters this public bailed out in 2008 and who are asking for more money. Ironically, Obama's most notable opponent(according to the media) has the same backers. You think the last election was won legitimately, by accurate vote counting? I don't think so.

He will do the same thing GWBush did. So don't you be insane and vote for the same thing that messed up our country in the first place. Take time to read my post. It will enlighten you on all the progress we've made under Obama. Let's not go back to what messed us up in the first place.
