    What does it say about Obama that a major backer of his, Tony Rezko, is serving time in federal prison:

    From wikipedia:

    "Rezko and several others were indicted on federal charges in October 2006, for using their connections to the state boards to demand kickbacks from businesses that wanted to do business with the state. While the others pleaded guilty to the charges, Rezko pleaded not guilty and was found guilty of 16 of the 24 charges filed against him. On November 23, 2011, Rezko was sentenced to 10 1/2 years in prison.[1]"

    Well, there are times where you can't judge a person based on what other people do.

    I had a great friend years ago and for some reason she shoplifted. This was years ago back in HS. If people were to question me as a person based on her actions, I would be offended.

    Say if someone who played for the Cowboys got in trouble for manslaughter, does that mean every player on the team, or the coach, or the NFL are held accountable too?

    I'm voting for Romney, based on how he will run the country, the person he is. I'm not voting for him based on what his backers do. That would be more shallow than anything. There are a lot of idiots, bad people, voting for Romney because he is not black. You couldn't say I'm one of them, too. Id vote for Romney if he was black, too. So it all comes down to the individuals morals, who they are as a person.

    There are many good and bad people voting for both candidates. It comes down to the individual.

    What does it say about Barack Obama when he watches an American Ambassador and 3 other Americans fight for their lives for SEVEN HOURS, with all the power and resources of this nation and other nations at his beck and call and chooses TO DO NOTHING? Then skips off to Vegas without flinching. What does it say about Obama when he doesn't allow embassy security personnel to have ammunition in their guns? What kind of human being does that? What kind of person backs that bs up?
