Comments: Hmm. You're new, so it's understandable, but see me after class.
I guess I'm voting for Romney anyway. It's...possible? That he averages 92% in those three unrated categories....And maybe he'll be more honest as the months go by, or Obama will lie more.
We might as well cling to hopes that A.) career politicians can extrapolate business sense to the federal government, B.) they are trustworthy despite being factually wrong a lot on the ol' trail, and C.) would be good at the game of international politics and war. Beats the alternative of Barack Obama attaining absolute power, somehow, and destroying us all because he's probably evil.
