He brought America's misguided adventure in Iraq to an end? Then why are we still flying troops into Iraq? This article is baloney from one the biggest DFL sanctuary cities in the nation.

How is that $16,000,000,000 California budget deficit coming along with Jerry Brown at the helm and a DFL supermajority in the legislature?

If Obama wins, it will be "second verse, just like the first." Huge taxes will be imposed come 2013 along with smothering regulations in energy production by the EPA. We need a President and their adminitration work with industry to make policies to bring jobs back to the USA...not punish them and make it more attractive to move jobs overseas. If Obama wins, I want to see the California entertainment industry millionaires slammed with high taxes by the state and fed, then see what tune they are singing.

"We need a President and their adminitration work with industry to make policies to bring jobs back to the USA...not punish them and make it more attractive to move jobs overseas.".. Yes - lets lower the tax rate on the top 2% so that money will go into investing for the best return!.. oh, that's in India and China... Wait, let's bring back jobs for the skilled workers in the US.. oh.. the right cut the training in the high schools for those jobs in the 90s to save on taxes, and we DON'T have workers with the skills to do the jobs being sent overseas... and the right made America safe by adding paperwork onto employers- like the Immigration reporting for employees and the Terrorist purchase list you have to check against every vendor and the allowed company federal ID list you have to use to vet your suppliers, and the Bush revised 1099 reports of who you paid what that have to be filed... You know, if the right just went in the corner and took their lousy theories with them and just shut up, maybe in ten years America could get healthy again.

toylandlog: "How is that $16,000,000,000 California budget deficit coming along with Jerry Brown at the helm and a DFL supermajority in the legislature?" Better than the recalls and red ink in Wisconsin with the GOP driving the state into the ditch, toydog.

I will not vote for any candidate that is anti live and anti family and Pres Obame is both. for starters he is the most pro abortion president in history basically his position that there should be no restrictions of any kin don abortion until time of birth and taxpayers should pay for it. do we really want somebody like that as our president when we have a pro life alternative in Romney/Ryan?

tnesley: "Huge taxes will be imposed come 2013 along with smothering regulations in energy production by the EPA." The "huge taxes" are a return to the Clinton "peace and prosperity" tax rates of the 1990's that the GOP agreed to in 2001. As for regulations, that is just right wing clap-trap. The market is up 100% under Obama, corporate profits are at an all-time high, health care is available for most Americans, and we haven't had a terrorist attack on American soil in 3 and 1/2 years, five time longer than G. W. Bush kept us "safe" (which he never did). Our allies like us again, our enemies respect us and bin Laden and other top al Qaeda leaders are DEAD. Why would we go back to the failed Bush economic and foreign policies that brought us to the collapse of 2008? Maybe it is the far right that wants America to fail!

Gotta stretch to use the words Obama and leadership in the same sentence. We elected an amateur and now the country is looking a lot like the south side of Chicago where he came from. Should we be surprised? The LA Times surprisingly doesn't see any correlation between the liberal CA politics and the fiscal disaster Obama has brought to our federal deficit. Or should we say NOT surprisingly. It's what the liberal MSM does to perpetuate the agenda of the left. Leadership brings results, while Obama has brought failure on almost every one of his 2008 promises. Amateur may be too nice a description. Leader is ridiculous.

no restrictions of any kin don abortion until time of birth and taxpayers should pay for it. ALANDERSA12---Where EXACTLY does the taxpayers pay for abortion in the US? There were restrictions in the Supreme Court decision on the trimesters abortions could be performed. You may have your own opinions but try to base them on facts, please.

the most surprising endorsement came from the Salt Lake City, Utah paper that called Romney a "shameless, shape-shifting nominee". It said President Obama has guided the country through a catastrophe and has earned a second term.
