  •  jeez. who's complacent? can you name anyone? (10+ / 0-)

    I just don't want to have 10 months of

    "we can't get complacent".

    NOBODY on this effin blog is complacent. And nearly every one of us here (if not every one of us) will contribute time or talent or money or work toward re-election of Obama.

    Please, for the love of god, let's put that phrase to bed here. Please? It's completely unnecessary in this venue.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

      That sounds like complacency to me. Or at least underestimating the right wing smear machine that Romney will have at his disposal. I don't want to see the same mistakes repeated that Democrats made in 2004 when they thought "Bush is so dumb, nobody will vote for him again."

        how does "i'm not scared of this guy" equal "I don't have to do anything to make sure obama is reelected"??

        Where on earth do you get that I'm underestimating ANYTHING?

        Look, if you're scared that's fine. I'm not. Bottom line is nothing's guaranteed. and yes, we have to work just like their side will have to. It's an election for fucks sake. But I just don;t understand how it is that that insipid phrase gets repeated over and over and over on a blog like daily kos where there's a community or exceptionally (almost unnaturally) politically active people. People who do politics as a hobby like some people do sports or diving. I mean really NO ONE HERE IS COMPLACENT. Not NOW, Not ever. And if you want to talk about 2004, I'd bet you any amount of money that although people here might have voiced "how could people vote for bush again" I'd bet you ANYTHING that no one here participated any LESS because of that idea.

        I'd bet you. I'd bet they were just as active in phone banking, canvassing, donating as they'd ever been ALL WHILE saying "I can;t see how anyone votes for Bush again..."

        Nobody here is complacent. Not now. Not 10 months from now. Not in 2004.

        I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.
