    I will actually be voting for Obama this year

    I never could have imagined that I'd even think of doing such a thing earlier this year but after careful consideration, I just can't endorse the GOP this year.

    The last straw is the UTTER lack of leadership by Romney in just meekly accepting the Republican platform plank which calls for no abortion even in cases of incest and rape. I(n the past, abortion hasn't been a major issue for me but something this extreme is completely off the wall.

    I realize that Romney isn't that extreme on the issue but nevertheless after all the heat taken by the party in the wake of the outlandish Todd Akin comments, for the GOP to adopt such an unyielding plank and for Romney to be unable to do anything about it means a complete abdication of leadership. If he can't even get his party to moderate its stance, he shows me no leadership whatsoever and doesn't deserve to lead the nation. Neither does Obama for that matter but at leqast Obama does have four years under his belt in that regard whereas Romney doesn't.

    The only other time I ever voted Democratic for President was the 1964 race between LBJ and Goldwater and I simply couldn't countenance the extreme right positions advocqted by Goldwater.

    The GOP this year is the gang that can't shoot straight. Who was the genius who thought of having the convention in hurricane-prone Tampa? It would serve them right if the ill winds reduces live attendance and blunts the effectiveness of the confab.

    If nothing else, I need to do my part to sent the GOP the message that they can't just run any old person on any old platform and still expect to get my vote.
