    I'll grant you that many could have made the mistake of thinking Obama might have something to offer in 2008 - but in 2012, you'd have to be brain dead to give that fool four more years.
    True. And Romney was no better option, if never before, that was the time to collectively call bull**** on the whole system and start over. I don't know how long Americans on both sides of the isle will continue to hold their noses and vote for the lesser of two evils. Romney wasn't a favorite amongst the GOP base.

Smart propagandists today know they need a bumper sticker sized message to reach these people normally. 2014 mid-terms may be an exception since there have been so many mistakes by the current administration, the bad news has trickled down and affected millions more directly - more than a normal mid-term.
    Very true, and applies to LIV's on both sides of the isle.

    I think the sweep of 2010 was a reflection on that very sentiment. The low information didn't come out to vote because they barely have a clue as to what the legislative branch does, believe is it largely unimportant. They are indoctrinated from birth to vote (D), believing the executive branch is the key holder to salvation, a variable king of sorts. Most also don't know what the electoral college is.

    It's sad really, urban zones being so poorly educated on U.S. gov and history.

    It's more the labour party camp as of late. I've seen some class assignments pushed on some students in k-12 in similar subjects. ****ing scary leftist ****

    The problem, universally, is that the best, most competent, people don't generally get into politics except for those people like Romney who've made a personal fortune, plenty to look after his family, and now wants to give back to his country. Unfortunately, that's life. It still, in my view, makes it incomprehensible that after four years of disaster Obama would have anyone supporting him for another four years. There was zero evidence in his first term that would lead anyone to believe he was getting better at it or understanding what he needed to do to improve.

    My opinion now for a while is, that urban education is not a mistake but by design.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    50-29 favorable for Beshear with 16% neutral which is pretty darn good for a Southern Dem and 5% have never heard of their KY governor.
