Christopher Black, 73 rests in a chair outside his apartment home on Delaware Road Thursday, Sept. 5, 2012, in Lehigh Acres. On his chest is a two year-old scar from surgery to open up a blood clot. He attributes the success of that surgery by having a working health care system in place. Black has been in the States since leaving his homeland of Cuba 55 years ago. 'Obama is the only one -- nobody else,' Black said. 'He's the best president. He's honest. He doesn't want war; he wants peace.'
