Why I'm stuck with Obama

I voted for Barack Obama in 2008 election, but have become increasingly disillusioned with his lack of strong leadership on the economy, jobs and Israel.

However, the platform of the Republican leadership causes me even greater disappointment. Their entire reason for being seems to be opposing Mr. Obama, no matter what the issue is.

This philosophy has developed a vitriol in our politics that is paralyzing our government. No one person or party is all wrong all the time. Consequently, the Republican stance will require me to support Mr. Obama again in 2012.
