    political but is a bit Republican by habit, watched the debate and said she though Mittens won.

    "I just like his experience as a businessman, I think that's good, and he was much better with his figures than Obama".

    So I told her the figures were made up lies, he had 16 pants-on-fire lies, etc.  Didn't really impress her - she just never voted for those democrats.  They are rough union guys, and Republicans are so "businesslike". She associates with the upper classes.

    But what got her is when I compared him to her narcissistic ex-husband.  "Oh, I can SEE that!" she said.  Hopefully that got her to change her vote.  I'll take it.

    On the other hand, I live in Rand Paul - Mitch McConnell land, and the Obama-Biden sign I put up on my lawn yesterday morning is still there, undamaged!  Yay!

    I believe we help each other in times of need. I want all our children to get an excellent education. Every American deserves health care. I love my country. I am a patriot. I am a voter. I am a Democrat.
