WHile I agree, that Obama wants what is best for the country as does Romney. I do believe the Obama does not like what America is or was.

So, it IMO is kind of like saying you like the apple orchard over there. Because you want to bulldoze it and replace it with a condo. You love the property and think you can improve it, if you trash it and start over. You did not destroy the orchard! You just built condos which improved it dramatically, unless you kind of wanted apples of course.

You said it much better than I did.

Obama and apparantly a large number of dems as well, have this vision of America where the gov't fixes most of our problems. Gov't has a place, but it's overreaching and overbearing at present. Dems want this society where people are not allowed to fail. Picking yourself up after you fail is what makes you grow. Sure, some poeple could use a helping hand. But they want to extend that helping had to the 50%, 75% or the 99% depending how liberal you are.

It's mistifying to me how each passing election, dems want more and more gov't intrusion into our lives. I don't think they will ever be satisfied. Meddling with other people's business is a toxic habit. You never get enough.

That is what Obama cares about and it is NOT the America our founding father's envisioned, nor is it anywhere close to what makes this country great.
