I've wondered about that as well. It's like they're giving the liberals enough rope to finish hanging themselves. Then in 2 years the republicans can flip congress back to their side.

I've heard predictions from conservatives who will vote for McCain that whoever wins will get reelected bc the economy will NATURALLY start shifting back to a normal situation in about 3 years. I can't tell you how many dye in the wool republicans I know (and love--tho' I am independent) would rather have 8 years of Obama then give Hillary Clinton a chance a the White House again. I even know of one middle of the road registered republican that, when she figured McCain had her state in the bag, went out and voted for Obama to get Hillary off the ticket.

How many more republicans did that in states where party affiliation didn't matter in the primary as long as you only voted for one party?

Thats why I giggle when some people say Obama should've put Hillary on the ticket.

LOL
Yes, that's exactly right. Why would I vote for Bush? First off, I'm not a Republican and, secondly, as a Texan, I knew how he left our state in debt and played games with our education system. I was gobsmacked when he won BOTH times. I really didn't think Americans would accept him as qualified.

I had to hold my nose when voting for Kerry but I thought Gore would have made a good president.

Dude, we LAUGH at y'all -- you do get that, right? The only time I did get angry was when one of your minion was loosely spewing crap about the Klan and saying I was a member of it. That's a mean-spirited and, yes, HATEFUL thing to say to a Southerner but she's too tacky to understand that, apparently.

Save the "hate" nonsense, too. That's a powerful, energy-sapping emotion and it's not wasted on Obamaphiles.
