Americans love the underdog.
Gallup has Obama up by 11.
I live in Pennsylvania (about 15 miles from Gettysburg) and I got a call from an Obama supporter last night trying to convince me to vote Obama. When I asked her for reasons why she said "Obama will be good for the economy".
I asked "Really? How's that?"
She said "If you make less than 250,000 dollars you're gonna' get a tax cut."
Me: "Oh yeah? I just heard Obama say the other day that it's now 200,00 dollars. And the Governor of N.M. Bill Richardson said it's 125,000 dollars now."
Her: "Where did you see that?" I directed her to the CNN web site. "Oh, I din't know that, I'll have to look into that". (sure she will)
Me: "You know who that reminds me of? Bill Clinton. He said the same thing in 1992 but when elected he said he couldn't do it. I'll bet Obama will do the same. Look at all the spending projects he has lined up at his web site. They have to be paid for some how".
She said that I'm obviously a McCain supporter and that she has others to call so she said goodnight.
You would think that the Obama cold callers would be a bit more informed don't ya' think?
When you have so many people working for you, you're bound to get a call from an idiot. Give me your number, I'll convince you.
And John McCain is closing in on Obama in the toss up states.
Seems as if a prediction of a landslide for Obama, is a mere fantasy.
Show me more than one poll per state that shows McCain closing in on Obama in the toss up states that was taken in the last week.
he's already had a call from an idiot, pay attention.
Yes, I know you called him. That's why I want to call him.
yes, i've been doing TONS of cold calling for obama.
my rabid partisanship for him is renowned throughout the rural, downscale electorate.
