  •  Surely.. (6+ / 0-)

    ..everybody can see this is FOX's way of fostering complacency among Democrats.

    The Fixed News propaganda machine would never claim Obama is up by 9 without an ulterior motive.

    And that ulterior motive is to get the Obama ground game to begin prematurely popping the champagne corks.

    •  Grant on Lee: (17+ / 0-)
      Oh, I am heartily tired of hearing about what Lee is going to do. Some of you always seem to think he is suddenly going to turn a double somersault, and land in our rear and on both of our flanks at the same time. Go back to your command, and try to think what are we going to do ourselves, instead of what Lee is going to do.

        ...trying to bullshit Democrats into sleeping in & going to the beach instead of phone banking & canvassing precincts, & you drop a "Grant on Lee" statement.

        I'm going to state the obvious here & confess I don't get it.

        •  The point is that the actions of the enemy are not (9+ / 0-)

          in our control.  Our actions are.  If we fear our enemies too much because we spend too much time worrying about our enemies and believing that they are never weak than we will not have the aggressive attitude that is required for victory.  Is Fox lying to make their guy look weak?  Why would they do that?   So that Dems get overconfident?

          I've been on this earth for a while now.  I've never seen this creature, the overconfident Dem.  I believe that it must live with the welfare queens and black confederates only in the fevered imaginations of Fox News Watchers.

          A blowout election depresses the losing side more than it engenders complacency in the winning side.  The problem with Fox doing this to screw us up is that it screws up their side more.

          Is Fox in cahoots with Pew and CNN who are likewise showing significant Obama leads?

          Democrats need to learn that this is much opportunity to be squandered in timidity as there is in foolhardiness and we have lost immeasurably more to the former than the latter.

          It's time for us to start thinking about what we're going to do to them.

      I mean, Romney. After all, the Obama ground game depends on Fox News for its information! ;)
