Wooot! Every sleep brings us closer to real change and real hope for America. Can't wait to shed the albatross of Obama. I also think he'll make a GREAT ex-President.
"We now return you to reality":

Latest polls:
Obama - 54%, Romney - 43% (Obama +11)
Obama - 55%, Santorum - 42% (Obama +13)
Obama - 50%, Gingrich - 38% (Obama +12)

Is it going to be one of the rightie's excuses for Obama's reelection? I'm sure it will be. I doubt they will admit to the ridiculous candidates they are putting against Obama to be the fault of his reelection. I doubt they will admit to the fact that the Republican party is falling apart.

I'm registered as an independent with Libertarian views so I'm no "right wing-er". But I also realize what this man is doing to this country and hope to God others stop sipping the Kool-aid and wake up and I will do anything in my power to have this man removed from office. However, I don't see that happening and I know you just can't win a fight against a crowd who will bow down to worship one man like he's a god.
And that's the beauty of our system. You can pick them up and take them to the polls, but you can't force them to cast their votes in any particular way, nor can you force them to tell you how they voted. So the "as long as they voted for..." is a myth. And it's a myth without any factual foundation. More than that, the "less fortunate" are entitled to vote. The idea that they be disenfranchised is un-American. So, who's drinking the Kool-aid? Methinks it might be the poster who thinks that anyone is bowing down to worship this President or any other.

To an extent. Though there are ways around it generally. Basically if you pick the right county you can be pretty sure that the large majority of folks your taking to the polls go the way you want them too.

For example, I knew someone who volunteered to drive people to the polls and she made pretty clear that the county she chose to do it in, Northampton County NC, reflected her political persuasion.

While everyone gets a chance to see the daily picks and pans of whomever the current President is, they rarely venture into the more boring exercise of looking at Presidential candidate's stated policy goals and plans. Not beyond the soundbites at least. I think the majority looks through somewhat tainted partisan glasses to some extent. It's easier that way.

Republicans have done it to Obama, and even their own candidates, Democrats did it to Bush, and it goes back from there. But I wonder how many of us so-called Republicans have actually read the web sites of the current candidates, and asked themselves, "What would this candidates presidency mean to me"?

Have middle-class Republicans vetted their stated tax policies, entitlement policies, foreign policies? Based on most people I know, and those on many forums, the answer is a resounding No. People have generally shied away from any dialogue concerning Ryan's tax and budget plan, and haven't really spent a minute outlining the difference between the candidate's plans in general.

And much, much less than 219 days until Obama's prize baby (Healthcare!) gets a rude awakening from SCOTUS! Imagine the political bombshell that Obamacare is going to be after the mandate gets shut down...

Meanwhile, get ready for the class warfare, 1%, evil rich people mantra from Obama as he takes on Romney. Never mind the fact that he's got close to $1B in his war chest to play with. The socialist playbook is so predictable!
