    bobswern diaries - that is why he put it in the headline.

    Go over to NC and see the seething hatred of President Obama and tell me that it is not mirrored in these diaries.

      you miss the point of his diaries. It is not "Democrats suck" but  the water carriers of the oligarchs suck regardless of party affiliation. Too bad that some of those water carriers happen to be Democrats. Being a Democrat does not exempt you from criticism and the path to more and better Democrats goes through calling out the bad Democrats such as Senator Hagan the sponsor of S474. We also happen to be in a Democratic blog and if we want to improve the Democratic party we need to talk about Democrats. Talking about Republicans all the time does little to make us better Democrats. It might be enjoyable but not conducive to self improvement.

      I live in NC and worked for the Obama campaign in 2008 and 2012 and canvased for Hagan in 2008 as part of my work for the Obama campaign and independently of the Obama campaign.

      Your characterization that Bobswern hates Obama just as many do in NC is cringe worthy if not hr worthy. For one, you are basically calling Bobswern a racist since I know for a fact, I deal with them on a daily basis, that a lot of the Obama haters down here in NC are racists, period. Is that the comparison you are making? Also, last time I checked Obama won NC in 2008 and got 48.4% of the vote vs Romney's 50.4%, so your characterization of NC being some huge well of haters is way off the mark. Sure we have plenty of them but not even close to a majority of them unless you asume that everyone that votes Republican is a hater. Sure a lot of them are, but more than not are misguided and vote against their self-interests mainly out of ignorance, but haters? All or a majority of them? A bridge too far.
