I'm answering anonymously, because I really don't want or need any far left or far right morons chasing me around on this website. Its happened before. I would also like to state that I am an independent that leans more on the conservative side and that I voted for McCain. For me, Obama is about midway. I actually liked his inauguration speech where he said something like we will extend our hand if you are willing to unclench your fist. However, foreign affairs have not gotten better. Obama is too nice and wants to please everyone. He decides to cancel the missile defense system in eastern Europe to get Russia on our side against Iran. About a week ago, Russia says more strict policy against Iran is futile. Plus Iran now has the audacity to threaten the U.S, Britain, and Pakistan for a recent terror attack.
Quick thing about health care: Back in July, he said that it that we can't afford for more delaying in health care reform. Billions of dollars in tax payer money is going into so I think we can't afford to get this wrong. Any minor footnote in this bill could cause it to be an epic fail.
To everyone in the LGBT community, leave Obama alone. He has wars, the economy, health care, and immigration to deal with which I think are all more important right now than whether or not the "don't ask, don't tell" policy is repealed. Plus, he could probably wait 'til his next term (if he gets it) to deal with that, because its not like you would vote for a Republican.
There are various other things that went into my decision. I could easily write a long essay and what I think he is doing right and wrong, but I am only one voice in a huge crowd.2
