President Obama needs to win over a fraction over 50% of independent voters. He will do that because he is the serious person with demonstrated leadership that commands respect. Independents are abandoning the Republican candidates because one of them is a cold vulture capitalist with the charisma of a turnip, the second is a rube who believes women should be barefoot and pregnant and the third is a huckster on his third marriage.
There is absolutely nothing we can do to improve the situation. It's already as close to perfect as it could possibly get.
This is nothing but a stupid publicity stunt to give Kos attention. Count me out.
What we could do is make Romney look better to conservatives and independents. How? By giving him excuses. By making it seem like liberal Democrats are trying to sabotage him. By getting Obama dirty with stupid pet tricks.
Remember when Rush Limbaugh tried to prolong the Democratic primary between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama?
How did that work out for Republicans?
The primary here (in NC) is one of the reasons President Obama won North Carolina. If the primaries had ended early Obama would have never had the opportunity to generate so much enthusiasm so early in North Carolina. He developed a political machine here for the primary that gained the strength in June to win the general election in November.
Extending the primaries could help Romney gain strength too.
I think we diminish ourselves when we support a bigot in any way and Rick Santorum is a bigot. We abandon our principles. We take the low road. I would never vote for or endorse David Duke and the same is true for Rick Santorum. So please don't tell me how operation Hilarity will work. Don't ask for my money.
I'm not giving one red cent.
