I have voted Republican, with one unfortunate exception, since I supported Nixon against McGovern. However, the Republican candidates are so poor this time that until yesterday I intended to vote for Obama. Then the NYT posted the story on the arms shipments to Maliki. With these weapons the horrible Maliki will be more dangerous than Saddam was. Moreover, he is so anti-semitic that he likely eventually will support Iran against Israel, and possibly with the advanced weapons Obama is sending. With one exception, I will not vote for Obama whoever the Republican candidate is. That exception is Ron Paul. I will stay home if he is the candidate.
