He is half Black and half White. That’s what people seem to be thinking right?
Seriously, I voted for him in 2008 because he was the lesser of the two evils and seemed to have some amazing ideals in place for our future as Americans. No one president has ever or will ever win over EVERYONE. People will find fault in every president we will ever have. No I didn’t agree with about 70% of what Bush did but I respected him for holding that title as I know I couldn’t do it.
Many say Barack Obama didn’t have the experience to run our country. Truthfully, no President has the experience to run our country unless they were a President at some point before. I was actually going for Hillary in that election because she was indeed married to a former President which to me, gave her a little more credibility. Besides, we all know who really wears the pants in that relationship….O_o
The point is, I need to do a bit of research about Mr. Romney before I make any definitive choices as we know Barack Obama now has experience as a President where Mr. Romney does NOT. Oh, and another thing…no President can just make a decision without congress right?
“Some scholars believe the Commander in Chief Clause confers expansive powers on the President, but others argue that if even if that is the case, the Constitution does not define precisely the extent of those powers. These scholars tend to construe the Clause narrowly, asserting that the Founders gave the President the title to preserve civilian supremacy over the military, not to provide additional powers outside of a Congressional authorization or declaration of war.” http://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/commander_in_chief_powers
