61. demoralization is a tool of the enemy. Think positive not negative. Negativity kills hope and all

 

or as someone said last week

debbie downers and sad sams sink ships

look at the other side-
Ryan got his ass kicked

NOT ONE REPUBLICAN in public or on a board posting was whining that Ryan lost.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

they found a sliver of something and said they won.

as Paul Simon might have said "negativity like a cancer grows"(to paraphrase his line in S.O.S.

You don't need to kick Mittens ass in a meaningless debate a month before election

You need to win the election on election day

and the old cliche "loose lips sink ships"

still applies.

Think Positive.

Vince Lombardi didn't say awwwwwwww the polls suck when he won Super Bowl 1 & 2
Joe Willie Namath didn't say awwwwwwwwwwww the polls suck in 1969 when he won Super Bowl 3

and remember

a winner does what a loser won't.
Did you think Mittens was going to give up and slink off under a rock somewhere?
Did you think Ryan was going to disappear

Think positive.

and demoralization and demoralization of the troops is a long time weapon used in local, state, national, and international politics

To think negative is what they want and have planned to do.
Demoralization leads to apathetic voters.

Whereas motivational positiveness leads to more voters for ones side

To win- ONE PUTS THEIR BEST FACE AND GO FORWARD, even when the chips are down.
one can whine and lose
or smile and win.

we are almost there.
We don't need to kick Mitts ass in debate 2 or 3. (After all Gore and Kerry won all 3 debates and spin lost it. It is evident that debates don't bring victory for democrats anymore, no matter how big the win, so ignore the debates, and get to the important part

and remember-polls pick a subsection of voters to question

WHEREAS EARLY VOTERS ARE A DEFINITE DONE VOTE.
(not a percentage, or chance, but an actual vote.

And if the stories about Ohio and early voting are true, Mittens CAN NOT win the election without Ohio. Because any small other chance would mean Mitt turned the tide, and if Mitt did so he would not lose Ohio, but he is losing Ohio. Therefore the small amount of other states will not suddenly turn his way. Advantage Obama, game set and match and winner Obama.

Thinking one wins, increases the chance of winning.

Mittens coming back is as likely as Goldwater, Mondale and Dukakis all thinking they would.

And in a revenge of 2000, Thank God the electoral college is still here.
