There were two candidates running for president. Is it too much to ask to do a little research about them before casting a vote? Mitt Romney is one of the most qualified presidential candidates in US history. He is not a smooth talking politician. On the other hand, Barack Obama is one of the least qualified presidential candidates in US history but he is a smooth talking politicians. Clearly, the American people did not do their homework. Or, they did do their homework and they chose the guy who promised them free stuff.
