    I have always felt that the AARP was in the tank for Obama. I am thinking they just don't want to be dragged down with him at this point. When your own long time supporters start distancing themselves, it's not a good sign.

    Even yahoo, who normally does a great job of spinning all things Obama in a positive light, is saying that Obama's next hurdle is the latest jobs report.

    Me thinks things are beginning to unravel.

    The AARP is an extremely powerful political lobbying group. It takes some big gray balls to complain about someone else using their politically oriented materials in a political debate.

    Seniors, blacks, women...they think they're stupid, and they commit a lot of resources to misleading them.
