Do you regret voting for Obama in 2008?

Considering the alternative, not at all.

@joefromchicago,
When some new event happens, I can imagine the terrible results if McCain/Palin had won the election.

@joefromchicago,
If I had, I would regret it. Setanta makes a good point, though.

@joefromchicago,
I have a thread criticising him, but he is our only real hope for right now. No, I don't regret voting for him. He was not my first choice but I will vote for him again this coming up election.

Interesting replies. I'd have to agree that, given the same choice again, I'd vote for Obama again. In that respect, I don't regret my vote. Unlike Edgar, however, I can't see voting for him again. Although I don't regret voting for Obama, I regret that he has not become the president that he promised he'd become. It's sort of like passing up the washer/dryer and choosing what's behind door number two on "Let's Make a Deal." Given the same options, I'd make the same choice, but I'm not happy getting stuck with the zonk.

Given the option in the next election, you'd throw your vote to the other side, or merely abstain? No matter the other candidate?

@Cycloptichorn,
Depends on the field. I'd never vote for the Republican candidate, so you can lay those fears to rest. If the Greens would stop putting up complete lunatics, I'd vote for their nominee. Who knows, maybe 2012 will be the year I vote straight Socialist Worker's Party.

Didn't regret it then, don't regret it now and won't regret it when I vote for his re-election.

Yes, I'm disappointed that he hasn't achieved/accomplished every single campaign promise exactly as it was laid out in the campaign. However, when I look at what he has accomplished, in the environment that he has had to work within, I am very satisfied and want to give him the opportunity to finish his work.

@Butrflynet,
What was wrong with his environment? He had solid majorities in both houses of Congress.

C'mon. The Republicans proved that anything less than 60+ in the Senate isn't a 'solid majority' anymore. When the other side is willing to abuse the rules and filibuster every single bill, very little can get done - and that which does ends up being heavily watered down.

Not only that, but Obama inherited a massive recession - caused primarily by a failure of the last group to do their job - and has had to deal with a huge variety of problems which could not possibly have been anticipated in the early part of the 2008 campaign.
