    Been trying to figure out the post-election campaigning, and it seems as if the machinery is a bit squeaky.... Or perhaps the roots need a little more watering....

    I think contrary to those here, many are questioning the spending, taxing, war, and all that.

    Damned right many people are questioning what's going on

    And if you actually read people's posts here, instead of assuming that you knew what people were thinking, you'd realize that saying:

    "contrary to those here"

    isn't correct, either.​

    I doubt you can find a single person on this board who is happy with the bailout. Hell few of us even understand it!​

    I read this board as much as you do, and I cannot find that blind support that you posts suggests exist on this board.


    These Obama cheerleaders you speak of on this board, are most a fabication you're made out of political straw, honey.

    Your giving your own perception hardly makes mine wrong, darling.

    OFA is not only a new concept, but at present it is operating on the state and local level solely under volunteer leadership without any resources from the DNC other than downloadable online tools.

    I would suggest that the Republican response is no more than what one would expect the opposition party to say. This is nothing more than spin:


    "...Republicans, who cast the relatively humble pledge campaign as a sign of broader disaffection with Obama's economic priorities." ...


    "...Republicans scoffed at the effort, arguing that it showed that even most diehard Obama supporters were uncertain about the wisdom of the president's budget plan...."


    Surely, nobody expected the GOP to admit that this is a potentially very effective means of politicking.
