Not everyone who voted for Obama is a “low-information voter”. I know some of them. They are doctors, business owners, and tradesmen. Some of us voted against Mitt Romney. Granted, the lesser of the two evils is still evil, but when you only have two evils from which to choose, it is smart to choose the lesser.
A few reasons this particular doctor voted against Romney:
1 “Corporations are people, my friend.” Hey, Mr. Scalia, get ready for more clones of you on the Supreme Court bench. If you liked Citizens United and unchecked Eminent Domain, you’ll love Mitt Romney’s appointments.
2 “I’ll bet you $10,000.” Forgetting the childishness of the entire “You wanna bet?” argument….if I choose to bet somebody about a small detail, I will bet an amount that won’t hurt me if I’m wrong. If I could afford to lose 10 grand on a stupid bet, it’s a good possibility I have no clue what it’s like to live paycheck to paycheck, as many Americans do. We have enough clueless people in DC.
3 “Government does not create jobs.” Second presidential debate.
4. “I will create 12 million jobs.” Second presidential debate.
There’s more, but that’s a good start.
Interesting to note that I have never seen anyone say how much better Romney would have been. In fact, when I sent a friend an e-mail stating she could not convince me Romney would have done better, she responded, “What does he have to do with it?”
I think some people are so blinded by their hatred of Obama that nothing else matters.
