That's a super post, Carter. And, whether we conservative republicans like it or not...it's pretty damn dead on. The ads...as horrific and as much as they lack ANY kind of class and as much as they lack a great deal of truth, are working wonderfully (as it seems) for Obama & Co.
I'm like you....just about EVERYONE I am associated with just don't see Obama with a chance to pull off another 4 years. Now, I associate mostly with people that are like-minded to me, so my data here is kind of skewed, so to speak. But, like it or not, we're all not middle-aged white guys that have done well for ourselves. A lot of people are now on the government dole...young people...minorities, mostly. And, ALL of them are going to vote for Obama because his campaign has been successful in making people believe that republicans are going to take away government entitlements...or significantly reduce them. And, as for taxes, what's the figure??? 47% of the people in our country working don't pay any federal income taxes? I think that's right. Well, those people are scared to death that the republicans are going to start making them actually pay federal income taxes...thanks to our democratic friends. No, regardless what we middle-aged, fairly well-off white dudes think or see...Obama is gonna be one tough nut to crack this time around...just like he was in 2008. I hope our party and our leadership and the Romney team is up to the challenge.
