Yes, with Obama up in the polls with over 5 points in the battleground states, and even a 1 or 2 point lead in the once red states we are very nervous.

Try and go get something new. Maybe on a ISSUE, besides all these factless, baseless, stupid claims the GOP and their redneck followers can come up with.

You can sense it? Like you can sense that Obama supporters are getting nervous?? Wow- that's cool- can you sense what tonight's lottery numbers might be as well???

It's funny how your screen name is "the point", and yet the majority of your posts have "no point"..........

Hey forget the lottery, can he sense when the stock market's going to turn around? Today would be nice...

BTW, does the McCain campaign know about you? 'Cause they sure could use someone with sense. I hear they've let people go, and they need someone with a keen ability to predict the future. They haven't been doing a good job of it so far.

I think this is what psychologists call "projection."

You McCain supporters are hilarious. (I've stopped using neocons, repubs and the like because I forget that crazy PUMAS and blue collar racists are among the bunch) Umm yeah you McCain supporters are hilarious, just keep on trying to convince yourself. You guys are breaking off with reality, losing it! I think you will need some prescription drugs after all is said and done.

Are you kidding me? Of COURSE I'm nervous. I'm looking back at history and I see war heroes painted as cowards, adoptive fathers painted as illegitimate "race-mixers" (in a state where, unfortunately, the race issue was particularly bothersome to some), etc.

These mischaracterizations were put forth by some of the same people that are running McCain's campaign as we speak.

I'm confident that Obama is running a solid race and is the better man for the job, but I do worry a little that this lowest-common-denominator garbage will eventually wear people down and they may end up voting for McCain.

However, I do have hope that a lot of people are tiring of the garbage, and all of this nonsense won't work this go-round.
