  •  One way to view voting for Obama (3+ / 0-)

    for people who can't stand him is that it's a way to avoid letting the country sink so low that there's no possibility of recovery. Now, I don't know if even Romney winning would lead to that, as we're a very resilient country, but the chances of it are much greater than with Obama winning, and even if we could recover from a Romney presidency, why put us through such avoidable misery?

    Of course, if one really believes that Obama is effectively if not literally as bad as Romney, then I can see why they'd be unable to vote for Obama. But anyone who believes that is simply delusional, and I've never heard a compelling argument otherwise. But I suppose we're entitled to our delusions.
