2. I anticipate no more than pretty words and no action from these "leaders." They are hoping
Edited on Wed Jul-14-10 11:37 AM by T Wolf
that a photo op flyover will placate "the base" enough to open the checkbooks and engage the ground troops in another election cycle.

Let them prove their intentions by actually doing something.

Then they can ask for support from the people they have ignored, cursed at, and abused for the last umpteen years.

Until I see some real progress in the liberal direction, mere words will not change my mind about them or their intentions.
