Obama manipulated uncritical people with buzzwords and hollow concepts to get into office. "Hope" and "change" are meaningless terms without academic clarification and proper execution. If people just asked questions like "What the hell do you mean by change, what are you changing, and how does it benefit America?" We'd might have someone a bit more competent in the Whitehouse.
He is indeed a stubborn anti-colonial ideologue with a whole lot of personal baggage that deludes his sense of policy. Those are most volatile of politicians (IRS scamming religious charities and conservatives, Gaza, and a foul-mouthed sycophant for a vice-president show how inept and ideologically bankrupt his current administration is). He has no idea of economic, social, and political consequences. Overall, he can't see the world for what it is, but what he wants it to be...so much danger in that.
I am an army brat, my father and my father's father are and were military men. I have many people I care about who wear my nation's uniform, and all of them call him one thing: "Zero". Why? Because he has zero military experience (seriously, he is making a mess of our military, cutting important budgets left and right, and he is casting a ballot to throw our young men and women into another war?). He is also doing soldiers very dirty...half of my friends after all their toil overseas are just being heartlessly furloughed by old Dr. Obamnik. Obamacare for one is a giant "cool story bro", naive and destructive (I know of two businesses that I frequent are going bankrupt and three people who are forced to file bankruptcy because it's just about to happen - imagine when it hits the fan. Our budget can't take the strain...
I am a CLT (a community living tech) who works with the disabled so they can achieve independence when it comes to basic life skills; my current client needs the social-safety net because he has special needs. When that social security is divided up into nothing, he and various others like him might not have the needed resources to survive or thrive. His yearly budget is already in danger... Instead, people who are perfectly capable of getting healthcare (or at least save some money in an emergency budget like I do - seriously do this, you will be doing yourself a favor) won't be getting it. Also, when some idiot gets drunk and crashes his car, knocks someone up, or gets an STD - guess who is paying the medical bill, us. When we are busy sharing wealth in a consumerist culture, it quickly becomes consumed. The individuals must produce capital by his works for the community, if he wishes to prosper.
To put it simply: If you are capable, if you don't work you don't eat.
I'd encourage willful charity and social policy that supported altruists and philanthropy over a forced mass-socialism any day. Sad thing about Obama's welfare policies is that they don't fare well for those who actually need it, the elderly and the otherwise disabled.
I agree Romney would have done better, he is a man of management and logistically capable. Though I still (after thoroughly studying their doctrine) would be hesitant to have a Mormon in the Whitehouse. I'd fear the connection to the LDS church would cloud his judgment when it comes to social policy.
Look at it this way: A plumber might keep up appearances, he might speak of lofty things, but ultimately what matters is if he can whip out a plunger and get crap done. And if he or his cronies are making up names and setting people against each other in mindless debate, than he is a wolf in sheeps clothing.
I vote Princess Sally. She'd get the job done! She always does. Our first furry president!
