    There are presidential elections every four years. A US president can run for two, four year terms. It's just a matter of being reelected.

    I have to wonder if anybody is going to run that people actually want to vote for in 2012. It's beginning to look unlikely.

    There wasnt anyone worth voting for last time around. Romney would have made a better President. We will see a republican in office this next time around. Not enough Obama supporters right now. Obama had, what, two years of political experience. It has served us so well.

    Yep seriously, just like the weird Hurricanes that have funny names. [​IMG]

    Atleast Obama did one thing that will keep him famous - he got Osama!

    Coming from non Americans. Obama was president when Osama was killed. That will be his ONLY legacy.

    Recent elections in the states are all about who's not the worst, not who's the best anymore... Country's going down hill.

    It's been like that for a long time. Lesser of two evils, if you will.

    Doesn't mean he's not black. It's still a first in this Nation, and it'll be the first thing that pops into peoples mind when they recall Obama.

    As for this guy - everyone talks big. It's like, a prerequisite for running. We'll see in the upcoming months what his plans are.

    Edit
    I suppose I should clarify - 'Black' as in skin tone. In this nation, society typically associates 'Black' with African American. Just clarifying.

    I'll vote for Mitt Romney. I'll consider my way of thanking Obama for high gas prices, high food prices, high unemployment, over regulation and destroying the value of the money I work hard for by printing trillions of dollars. To put it in GBAtemp terms I'd be able to afford a 3ds if Obama wasn't so incompetent.

    This guy is ignorance at its best. Everybody in america has the stupidest mindset of thinking, hey if things are going great its because america is great, when things go bad its the president's fault. Poeple think voting once every four years gives them the right to criticize when the government fails and start spouting stupid shit. If you truly love this country and your voting rights you should know your who your senators are and your governers. Get involved in trying to get propositions passed at a local level, and actually get informed why the fuck recessions happen, not just use the president as a scapegoat when shit gets bad and hope he bails you out.

    I'm likeing Herman Cain more than Romney, but I'm sure that will be twisted somehow.

    @impizkit, thanks.

    @Romee, it's a legitimate problem, and It's not my problem if you choose to sweep it under the rug.

    You know, this doesn't concern me at all, but if I had to vote, I'd so vote for Obama again. It's going to be tough to beat him in an election.
