  •  Certainly been THAT... (0+ / 0-)

    Still being that voice as a matter of fact, but I've also been saying, and for a while, there's two tasks, get the guy re-elected, then yell like hell nonstop afterwords.

    Probably not good enough for people who honestly disagree, but Hey, we disagree....

      Nothing from the first election and first term suggests that the president's ardent fans here will do anything close to yelling at him, let alone "nonstop."  In fact, it's far more likely it will be the opposite - more of the same.
      •  I kinda don't think so. (0+ / 0-)

        I happen to believe that however bad this stuff is, it would be even worse with the Rs in charge, but once the R threat is squashed, the sux/rox debate is gonna change pretty dramatically.

          that the behaviour will change, as you say it will.

          No actions from ardent fans here have suggested otherwise. What' much more likely is we'll continue to get statements like this:

          however bad this stuff is, it would be even worse with the Rs in charge,
          And again, I won't hold my breath on this one. The same type of prognostications were made before the last election. They didn't bear fruit:
          once the R threat is squashed, the sux/rox debate is gonna change pretty dramatically.
          Seeing is believing. Talk is cheap
