8. It won't work

The American public knows President Obama and they like him. The only way the Republicans have a chance at winning is to steal it, but I think the margins are getting to big for them to do it. I think that's what is freaking them out too. The more they pile hatred on Obama, the more they are repulsing the public and I think it will help us in the down ballot races. This could be a GOP catastrophe.

I was driving across town in Grand Rapids on Friday & there's a big billboard on the corner of 131S & 28th by the Republican Party that says, "Obama supports gay marriage & abortion...DO YOU?" I saw a car full of young people pull up next to me. They were pointing and nodding at the billboard and I could see them mouthing, "Yeah, we do!" I rolled down my window and told them to vote. They said they would, gave me a thumbs up, then the light turned.

Gave me hope.
