It's called being self sufficient, an overlying archetype of republican way of thinking.  Just because you personally benefit from Obamacare does not make it correct for the nation.  Healthcare is a service.  It is your responsibility to pay for services.  Be a man, take care of yourself or as you put it, die at age 30.  It's the self deserving generation of people that favor the democratic policies.  I'm not interested in paying for your healthcare, so Fuck you.

Obama is charismatic, like many elected presidents before him.  He has a likeable personality, and that's why he won.  Romney was awkward about certain things and the way he spoke sometimes.  Anyone who votes based on those things is a number of different adjectives, gullible, ignorant, etc.  Romney would not make important decisions by himself, no president does in this era, anyone saying things like that falls into this category.  Ignorant, gullible.

Some interesting facts:

More men voted for Romney
More women voted for Obama.
More low income/innercity (read uneducated and often self deserving stereotype) overwhelmingly voted for obama.
More rural (read uneducated but roughly translated into hard working manual labor SELF SUFFICIENT) residents voted for Romney.
Ages 18-30 (young) heavily favored Obama.  Again, charismatic, the "cool" guy.  A horrible way to decide your vote.
More of the older/wiser generation (40+) voted for Romney.

Disclaimer:  I don't care who you voted for.  I voted for Romney, simply because I don't like my tax dollars (and I pay a lot of taxes) going to programs like welfare that encourage laziness and "devolution".

I don't mind Obama.  I don't agree with some of his policies as far as the future of our country is concerned, but I work the for government, and big government (democrat) translates into job security for me and my organization getting more government revenue, so really I will see significant personal benefits from Obama being in office.  It's not about my individual gains though.  That's short sighted thinking.

Oh and, politics on the internet is a lose/lose.

Top out.

ye thats also a bit of a issue. The fact that because of the two party system no president that people actually wanted to elect was there to choose from. People basically chose obama cause they didnt like mitt or mitt cause they didnt like obama. If there were more options on the table that where readily available (not these people who have no party and get like 7k followers nationwide) I think someone else entirely would have been chosen.

None of the third party candidates would be remotely viable even if they would've been running with the kind of support a dem/repub candidate gets. I also don't think any of them would've made a better president than Obama. It also has to be considered there are many things that you just can't get from a president currently - part of politics is picking battles you can win because some battles just aren't popular enough and will prevent you from being elected.

If Obama had run w/marijuana legalization as part of his agenda for example, he probably would have lost electoral votes without gaining any - any state that's pro-MJ legalization is already blue. And there's no guarantee he'd be able to deliver on such a promise since he'd have to struggle with what's probably a mostly anti-legalization congress and house.

This is pretty true.

A lot of people think part of the reason Romney wasn't very popular was because of his immigration position.

Reasonably certain anyone who disliked Romney's stance on immigration was going to vote for Obama because "they wanted stuff."

I find it rather unfortunate that out of 300 million people we're basically only able to vote for 2. I'm fairly certain it wouldn't have been difficult to find someone more qualified/capable than the options we were presented with.

Edit: As someone who leans slightly right even i found it difficult to vote for Romney. If the Republicans plan on winning an election in 4 years it might be time to think out of the box and support a more neutral candidate with conservative financial principles; or just cross their fingers that the economy continues on the downturn which doesn't serve anyones best interests.

Qualified / capable to run the country? Maybe there are. Willing to run it as well as qualified and capable to get themselves elected into the job? Not many fit such criteria.

a lot of people here vastly overestimate the presidents power on the economy or creating laws. they are supposed to be a magistrate at home and a foreign diplomat.

Actually, Romney was cannon fodder from the beginning. Typically it is VERY hard to defeat a sitting president, even with a good candidate. It has only happened a few times and usually due to unusual circumstances. This is why all the republicans voters actually wanted to see sat this election out, because if you lose an election you typically don't run again unless you are a crazy old man.

Now they just have to wait 4 years and they can go full steam ahead with a real candidate
