Not really. For the most part, I am more of a non-interventionist than most American politicians and it's not exactly easy for me to vote for people who share my views 1:1. I continue to vote for the lesser evil in my eyes.

I can't think of anything that is going on right now that would change my opinion of the President. Those that are blaming him for the assassination in Libya are political opportunists of the most vile caliber and make me sick.

Nope. I have made my choice months ago and not changing one bit.

I can't even begin to tell you how much it makes me rage that somebody actually voted "I don't vote." I mean, I'm not naive enough to think that 100% of eligible voters do so, but to see somebody make a conscious choice not to is just infuriating. It doesn't matter what side of the political aisle you are on, it's our civic duty to vote. And don't give me some crap about how your vote doesn't matter, etc, etc. Voter apathy is a cop-out. Don't like current policy? Go vote. Don't like the system? Go vote. Don't like how high gas prices are? Go vote. Want your garbage day changed to Thursday? Go vote. Your one single vote may not change the world, but sitting at home on your ass is guaranteed to change absolutely nothing.

Thank you Oxygen99, I fully agree. Not voting is just wasteful, and voter apathy is what's caused a lot of the craziness. When a lot of moderates aren't voting, the crazies get more influence and we end up with a deeply divided and bickering government.
The Libyan situation is confirming my vote, since the President is responding rationally to the crisis, instead of going in guns blazing. He's also acting like he's dealing with a different culture, which doesn't have the tradition of free speech that we do.
