  •  I don't know about americans but (9+ / 0-)

    the rest of the world knows that Romney is no match with Obama.President Obama is a true leader and we as outsiders we could see that from distance.The only fact that Romney is White and racism is still deep in your culture and reflected in MSM explain Romney so called ''surge''. Even the first debate,Romney was all style and no substance.Since the american media love Reality TV Show,the narrative went accordingly.I truly believe that the USA is the only country in the world where a politician could insult 47% as freeloaders and still be running for office.You may not want to accept it BUT race is a factor.Otherwise Romney could not be in the same category as President Obama. Sorry for the language but this is what I think.If you don't want Obama,we the rest of the world will be glad to have him as our leader!

    •  Americans aren't all racist (5+ / 0-)

      Romney is only marginally winning the white vote, like 54/46 in some of the northern states. In the South where Romney gets most of his popular vote support, racism is a bigger factor.

      What really drives Americans? They want it all, and they want it NOW. Obama didn't give them instant economic fireworks so maybe that other guy will. That shallow-minded selfishness is the main difference between 2008 and 2012. Thank gods Ohio is doing fairly well economically, or we'd be in real trouble.

      •  I saw a poll today, that we are more racist than (3+ / 0-)

        anyone would like to admit, something like 53 or 56% of people polled are admitted racist, and that doesn't account for those who don't admit to it. Why in the hell do you think white men are breaking in large numbers for Romney, as well as seniors, both groups are very racist. This is somethng not discussed by the Obama campaign, but just the opposite of the Romney campaign, if you say something enough people will believe it to be true, if you ignore it it doesn't make it any less true.
