I am gratified to have so many nice people concerned about my vote. The addendum at the end of my last post stated people had a month to change my mind and I invited debate. In the interest of sparing feelings and cooling down the rhetoric, let me restate my decision.
I look upon my vote as a defensive manuever. We are engaged in a monumental conflict in this country at the moment. Few battles are won by dismantling one's army during the fight. Handing victory to the other side is not an option, especially when that side started the war, chose the weapons and picked the battlefield. If we succeed in securing the battleground, we can then focus on fixing the personnel problems within our own ranks. One firm step at a time; one problem at a time. My vote for Obama is a footprint and not a step.
The fox is in the henhouse now; save the chickens.
