    Well, Hannah, you have every right to agree with Tyler, but everything you assert is wrong. I assume that by “promised to the fix the economy back in 2008, HE HAS ALMOST DOUBLED IT!!!!” you mean that Obama doubled US debt, shows, in the table here: that deficit as a percentage of GDP (which would be dividing our debt by our profits) has been in steady decline to less than 5% since the around 2005/2006, when Bush made it skyrocket to 10%.
    Claiming that Obama has had the most unemployment of any president ever is a bald faced lie, as you can see here: , it reached 9.6 in 2011 and has dropped .3% since then, where as, you can see here: that FDR first entered office to almost twice that at 16.6%, and was still battling 14.6% unemployment when he entered his third term (this was before the two term limit had been established).
    If you have legitimate specifics of wrong doing by the president we would be interested in investigating that, however, I will point out that our coverage of the two main candidates this election has been quite fair as we have said only good, factual things about both, refraining from reporting on Mitt Romney’s unethical, evil, quasi-vampiric business practices, his callous treatment of a family pet, or brutal bullying of a homosexual classmate in prep school. We haven’t even mentioned his numerous, flagrant lies in his speeches.

    President Obama needs to go back to Chicago. The president into prosperity, rather into insecurity. What will Obama leave for our generation? Let’s start with $16 trillion dollars of debt. President Obama oversaw the largest increase in the national debt during any presidential term ever. $5.6 trillion since he took office. The debt when Bill Clinton left office was $5.7 trillion (for metric). Unemployment has been over 8% for 43 months. October dropped to 7.8%, only because California Secretary of Labor Marty Morgenstern, an Obama campaign donor, did NOT report California’s numbers to the United States Department of Labor. The civilian participation rate has dropped from 65.7% to 63.6% since President Obama has had office. The participation rate affects how the unemployment numbers are reported. Young people generally are experiencing very high unemployment right now. This country needs an economic president, not a social one. This editorial seems too focused on gay marriage and women’s “rights” that it misses the bigger picture. This country is headed for fiscal ruin. Gay marriage is a states’ rights issue and abortion and contraception access have been decided by the Supreme Court, something that NO candidate for office will try to balk at. I suggest this editorial reevaluate the endorsement of President Obama, even on issues that I did not mention, such as the National Defense Authorization Act (indefinite detention of US citizens), the number on government assistance today (which is generally a bad thing), and the price of gasoline (especially here in California).

You cannot tell only the good and not mention any of the bad! THAT IS IMMORRAL AND WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
