    I do.

    There was this presidential election.

    I really hated the president. He was an incompetent boob that had led our country to calamity. I wasn't alone. He was extremely unpopular with most Americans who viewed his policies as disastrous.

    The the Democrats nominated an total dork to run against him.

    I wasn't worried because the President was such a dipshit, I knew he was toast.

    Then the total Dork's campaign platform consisted of "vote for me because the president sucks"! That's okay, I thought, tat will be enough to beat the loser incumbent.

    The morning after the election, I (and many others) woke up shocked that the president had won. There many conspiracy theories, but the truth is that in America it is really hard to unseat an incumbent.

    I am getting a kick out off the confidence of the right on this board. I suspect you are whistling past the graveyard.

    This thread will serve as anal salve for your butthurt selves after the election.

    Isn't Clinton the only democrat to be re-elected since FDR?

    The comparison differs in that here the incumbent is running on "the other guy sucks."

    I also remember orange alerts and swift boaters (as a reminder to the people who are mortally offended by the super PAC ads.)
