Anyone who isn't really rich and campaigned for Mittens is an idiot. Mittens has never cared about anything but making lots of money and paying as little taxes as possible on it. Why would a normal human being want him in public office?

Albeit, the ones that are left are our regulars and fit like a nice pair of bedroom slippers in their predictable opposition but for a while there, we had a real boiler room full of professional internet pundits who were father right than Atilla. Comments of our president like "scumbag" and "turd" were bandied about like popcorn at the movies. I can deal with and actually have an affinity with our usual loyal opposition but some of the others......not so much. I even got so hot I got banned for a while. But in the end, I'm still here and he's gone for good. At least until the next election.
True, true, don't know if I'm allowed to mention names, but one who posted seemingly every 2 hours, some nasty, vicious stuff about Obama, is no where to be found now. Pretty sure he/she was a paid troll.

Funny, OFA is still funding many of their FO's. Wonder why mittens pulled the plug so quick.
have you been a paid campaign worker in a natioanl election?

No, but I did work with several for the last six weeks and just had dinner with four OFA FO's last nite. What's your point? FYI, not one of them had their "funding" cut off within an hour or so of the election being called.

There you go. Volunteers.

Keep it up with your class warfare, and hatred of conservatives. Just shows your true colors. The only thing worse than a poor loser is a poor winner.

OBTW, I was in San Diego assisting the clean up and closing out of one of the Obama field offices, and what do ya know, the paid staff (three) were still being paid!!!!
Well, the unions couldn't let their minions go without, now could they?

I was looking for you on election night and you were nowhere to be found. I was highly disappointed..
