18. And I'm glad that the president is creating that message
If he'd listened to people like YOU, he wouldn't have done that and would have focused solely on saying "the other side is worse". And that would have GUARANTEED us a big defeat. Lesser-evil campaigns don't work and aren't worth trying. President Obama gets that. Why don't YOU?
