This ties in with why a ended up voting Obama in 2012. I wasn't thrilled with what Obama did his first term, and I was looking for a reason to vote Romney. Aside from leaning left on social issues (which I would guess Romney did as well, honestly, he just couldn't say it) Obama had outlined a plan for the economy. Unless I just missed something, it seemed that Romney kept saying the same line or two over and over and didn't seem to have anything concrete, and as much as I'm dissatisfied with where we are now, I'm not sure Romney would have done better. From here we can get into "if Romney did this and didn't do this, we'd be here, etc" which is all good, but we don't know for sure.
Compared to a lot of you guys, I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to economics. And to be honest, the more I learn, the more I'm drifting in my thinking to the right. There's a decent chance I'm voting republican in 2016, as long as the candidate doesn't come across as your stereotypical right-wing jackass.
