    Pres. Obama, they would be wrong.

    A lot of dems are cynics now and are in a real mood about some upcoming potentially disastrous decisions before Obama.

    Just because someone is registered dem does not mean they will stick with the party in the 2012 election.  There are a LOT of things that can happen between now and 367 days from now.

    But it does concern me and it should concern the pres.  WE know full well--as does the pres--that the energy isn't there like it was in 2008 and neither is the public money.

    It's a whole different game this time.

    I will stand as a dem even if I have to hold my nose to do so, but my God, alternatives are tempting at times.  But I will not leave my party.  I will work to drag it leftward from the precipice.

     

    202-224-3121 to Congress in D.C. USE it! You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage them.

      Why did so many Dems vote for Nader?

      Everyone loves to slam Nader, but few want to delve into the sticks of discontent that led Nader to leave the party, that led life long Dems  to vote for Bush over Gore, or even to take the drastic step of life ling Dems going third party.

      I still think we can change the Dem Party quicker than we can elect a third party candidate.

      But if we ignore what you said:

      we might just doom ourselves to another repeat.
