  •  Richard Morrison says the same thing (4.00)
    I heard him speak yesterday and he said it was easy to talk to Republicans, and convince the average-person type.  Just say "you were promised lower taxes.  Are your taxes lower now?  Well, they would be if you made over $200,000.  They lied to you."  That's going to be my meme with all non-Dems from now on.  They lied to you. You were fooled.  

    In Texas this is particularly important with regard to property taxes, which just go up and up.  (Really?  No kidding?  In a state without an income tax, property taxes are going to be high?)

    •  John Edwards was the best candidate for this. (none)
      He probably still is.  Why do people forget him?

      I'm repeating myself....but here I go again....

      for example, John Edwards, 2008 Presidential Candidate:

      The problem is simple.  They pretend to be on your side, but they ain't.  They don't feel your pain.   They're getting people hot and bothered about crazy pointless things, and when nobody's looking, they're stealing the goldmine, and y'all are getting the shaft.

      •  I didn't forget him (none)
        I just didn't listen to him say this yesterday, that's all.  His message is also great.  

        Who forgot Edwards?  

        There you go again.  You forgot Edwards!  He forgot Edwards.
