The Exponent Gets Political: Who Will You Vote For?

Since Mitt Romney running for president was the primary catalyst in creating this political issue, I can’t help but wonder who the U.S. citizens are voting for. If you are not a U.S. citizen, I hope you’ll also participate–who do you hope to see win?

Please tell us more in the comments.

  1. I will be casting my vote from abroad for President Obama. (I’m pleased for once that my voting state is Massachusetts, so I can also vote for Elizabeth Warren.) Among many good reasons, my most selfish is that I would like to have the option of moving back to the States if and when we would like. If “Obamacare” is overturned, we will have to wait until we’re eligible for Medicare (assuming it will not have been dismantled by the Republicans by then).

    One big reason I will not vote for the man who was once the president of my former stake is just how jaw-droppingly dishonest Romney has been during this campaign. The rank hypocrisy of someone who must have asked hundreds of people many hundreds of times “are you honest in your dealings with your fellow [beings]” is simply too much … particularly when added to his support of the heartless Ryan budget (etc., etc.).
