The ability of the current Democratic party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory astounds me.

I did the hold-my-nose and vote thing for Obama last time around, and I've been regretting it ever since, so next time I'll be voting third party or abstaining. If Obama (or any other Dem) can go as far center-right as they want and still get all of the votes from the left, there's no incentive whatsoever to do anything other than kick the Democratic base in the teeth over and over again. I'm done being part of that.

If the alternative was John Huntsman I could agree with you. If the alternative is Rick Perry? Then that's not a risk I could take. Then again as a resident alien I have no say anyway.

If Perry were to win, that would be the end of my tenure in the US I think.
