19. Another thing...
Your post came just as I was mulling over whether I belonged here anymore. Well, actually, I was mulling it over in a nice bubble bath and then came down to check the board again before I made my decision.

I've seen so much defeatism, so much anti-Democratic Party stuff, so much anti-Obama stuff that it has felt like a Twilight Zone version of Free Republic here.

Thank you for being open minded. I understand it when people have strong reactions to what the "news" tells them. But I've never understood giving up on the Democratic Party or the Democratic President.
