My better late than never endorsement

by Steve Mona on Sun, Oct 28 2012 11:25 PM


It will come as no surprise to anyone that knows me that I did not vote for Barack Obama in 2008. I did not like his stand on many issues and I did not care for the people that he surrounded himself with. That said however I did get caught up in the post-election euphoria of our first African-American President. I thought it was a defining moment in our history and I hoped he would prove me wrong for not voting for him. When some said, "I hope he fails" I chastised them. I told them I hoped he was the best President we'd ever had because our country was in bad shape and if he was I'd gladly vote for him in 2012.

Sadly, President Obama has been worse than I ever imagined.

I watched the primary debates and I was totally disappointed at the Republican field. I kept hoping one candidate would show me they could not only beat President Obama but actually do something to change the direction our country is headed. When it became apparent that Mitt Romney would be the nominee I resigned myself to voting once again "against" the other candidate rather than "for" my candidate. Sometimes thats how politics is.

But all that has changed. In the last two months Mitt Romney has not only proven to me that he can indeed win but that he's the right man for the job. I live in New York State and my vote for Mitt Romney won't effect the election in any meaningful way. My liberal state will go for Obama in a big way. I'll vote for two reasons. Firstly my vote will count in the local election in my home county where my State Assemblywoman and US Congresswoman are Republicans in tight races. But just as importantly, I am enthusiastically supporting Mitt Romney.
