      about Obama being too conciliatory, ask yourself how it is that in 5 years the Republicans have lost Strong on Defense, Able to Keep Us Safe, Fiscally Responsible, Morally Superior, the Keepers of the Economy?  60 years of expensive propaganda and they've got nothing left.  Every time Obama "caved" on tax cuts for the rich he first forced them to fight for those tax cuts over jobs, debt reduction, the credit of the US.  He boxed them in every single time, and they said really stupid things.  Even their own voters don't buy the job creator crap, their best myth.  Women know what Republicans will do to us every time they have power.  POC know they're full on racists.  Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Texas-all Red States are turning into poverty hell-holes with no quality of life.  

      It's not an accident, this is long-term planning.  Good governance is our only hope for a decent future, and Obama is teaching Americans that Republicans aren't capable of it.  Katrina or Sandy?  The choice is stark.  Smart politics, subtle, well played.

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
