Battle of the US Presidential Endorsements Heats Up

Ross Perot, third party US presidential candidate in 1992, has officially endorsed Mitt Romney in the US presidential race. Meanwhile President Barack Obama received a strong endorsement from celebrity star Honey Boo Boo.

President Obama is popular among celebrities and media personalities, such as CNN's Candy Crawley, who are rallying around the president in these challenging times.

Mr. Romney is forced to settle for endorsements from businessmen high and low, and others whose personal competence must generally be demonstrated on a regular basis -- unlike most of those who support the US president.

Meanwhile, for the most part, US blacks remain supportive of the president, hoping against hope that perhaps in his second term, Obama can stop the collapse of the US black community and finally do something to help ordinary blacks.

Obama appears to be running against George W. Bush yet again, this campaign, but a better comparison might be with another president who had to deal with a difficult recession -- Ronald Reagan. The graphic above compares the Reagan recovery with the Obama recovery.

The graphic above compares the number of Americans added to the national work force to the number of Americans added to those not in the work force. It would appear that Mr. Obama's record on employment is something he will probably choose to avoid, obscure, or lie about.

Mr. Obama's campaign efforts to avoid discussing his actual record as president could be labeled "The Great Bamboozle!" or "The Great Hoodwinking!" With the help of the news and entertainment media, as well as a number of less savoury characters in the Chicago style of things, Mr. Obama may be able to postpone his departure from the White House for another four, increasingly depressing years.

But think of all the great White House parties and presidential vacations that American taxpayers will pay for during that time. Think of it as a 4 year fin de siecle celebration, followed by an increasingly likely US default on its debt, should current federal deficit trends continue.

Obama himself wrote that he was a type of "blank screen" that allowed others to project their own views. It is odd that this should still be the case after these disastrous years, but there you are.

American blacks are threatening to riot and commit all forms of violence, if Obama loses the election. On the other hand, if Obama wins the election, a much larger scale of ethnic violence in the US is virtually inevitable, sooner or later.

Either way, there is likely to be politically instigated violence -- but it will be on a much larger scale and over a more extended time frame if the Obama decay and national malaise are allowed by voters to continue.

Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst. And as the world becomes a more dangerous place, consider what you will have to do to meet that danger.

I think I would prefer Obama, with a Republican congress. From what I've seen of what Romney said in the debate last night, he endorsed most of the policies of the Democrats anyway - Pell grants, "assault rifle" controls, etc.

I think Romney is even a squishier, more liberal Republican than Bush was.

Make Obama mostly powerless by denying him a cooperative congress, and then let him sink with the economy over the next four years. The future for the white people in America depends on them waking up to what's happening to them. That is going to happen with a liberal Republican in office who enables the liberal agenda.

I plan to leave my vote for president blank on election day. I'll vote straight Republican down the rest of the ticket but I'm not voting for another liberal like Bush who gives Democrats 90% of what they want while they demonize him anyway. My state is not a swing state anyway so it doesn't really matter. Of course even if it was a swing state, the idea that my vote really matters is a fiction. It matters about as much as it would matter if I went outside and blew a fan towards an approaching thunderstorm to deflect it.

Typo at end of my third paragraph: "That ISN'T going to happen with a liberal Republican in office who enables the liberal agenda."

You may get what you ask for. You won't like it, but you may get it.

People who have never worked close to the core of government power would probably never believe how things are actually done. Perhaps it is better that way.

It has been said that ignorance is bliss. And since for almost all humans: Everything they think they know just ain't so -- in that regard they should be blissful.

@MnMark - are you for real? Put your vote where your mouth is because you sound like a fence-sitter. Otherwise don't vote at all and then DON'T complain for the next 4 years when you get Obama overriding the laws of the land with his Executive Orders. People like you make me so angry. You sound like a wimp.
