Let me tell you about "the big f**king deal" in Ohio. Every teacher, cop, and firefighter

watched Joe fight for them last night. Middle-class voters learned last night which party is on their side!

DO NOT FORGET the vote here in Ohio to overturn SB5 WAS overwhelming.....a huge rejection of GOP policies!

This Buckeye will tell you..."Yes, last night was a big f**king deal" for many more reasons than the elite media just don't get.......

5. At the end of the day, it's NOT about was you are against, it's about what you are FOR.

I am a proud Liberal, Progressive Democrat and am for policies that lift up the poor and reach into the deepest, darkest corners to shine light on the disadvantaged. Period.

...IT IS ALL ABOUT WHO AND WHAT THEY ARE AGAINST:
  1. Women;
  2. Poor and lower income citizens;
  3. Students;
  4. The Elderly;
  5. Immigrants;
  6. Anyone without Swiss or Cayman accounts.

9. Agreed, but I think the media DO get it. That's why they are making such a stink now.

Trying to convince people it wasn't a big deal, then maybe they won't bother voting. It was so overwhelming an evening, though, people know that it most certainly WAS a big deal.

to stall every initiative by Democrats to get the economy moving.

Close-minded people who seek out affirmation of their biases and prejudices are almost impossible to reason with; they ignore whatever the facts may be, and cling to those that tell them what they want to hear.


Thankfully, they are a minority in this nation, and the Old Guard of the White racist establishment and their footsoldiers are slowly dying off.

And just remember this little factoid:

Wasn't Ohio the state that was stolen for Bush in '04? What's going to prevent that again? Of course the same applies to Florida, but it seems that Ohio is what this discussion is all about.

But the whole point to the "tightening polls" meme in the MSM is to get the perception out there that's it's close. If it's close, they'll steal it. That's just the way it is. And I hope you're right about the state erupting. I might have to take a trip north if it does.

Sad to see. On their website they had an online poll where you could vote for the VP debate. Last I looked 50000 people had voted and it was

Biden 61%
32331
Ryan 39%
20345

But they keep using that other poll that shows Ryan won.How did they even come up with that other poll? Go figure!

39. Ryan is the quintessential 'bean counter' figure who...


... comes into the room with his clipboard, and his charts and his figures and says 'Sorry folks, we are going to have to cut some of our staff -- and that means you. So terribly sorry, Cya' -- and then drives away in his Ferrari with his 80's rock music blaring full tilt home to catch the game.

He's the 'suit' who comes in and, with no experience, tells you what you need to do to fix something, and then wanders away to tell someone else how to fix something else, and then another -- all the while, not helping or sticking around to get his hands dirty doing the actual work...

He's the guy who thinks that his neighborhood is the only place that matters -- that people like him are the only people who matter -- and that folks who happen to think exactly like him are the only patriotic folks in the country and the rest are out of touch or too dumb to know better...

Yes, he's 'that guy' and we all know him when he has walked in the room.

Now is our chance to tell 'that guy' -- that idiot who always walked in shaking their stick at the rest of us...

... to stick it.
