80. It's RW propaganda, propaganda that gets repeated ad nauseam on DU.
Obama is weak. Obama caved. Obama buckled. Obama bowed. Obama capitulated. Obama looks stupid. Obama is bad...

Seriously, what net effect do you think those words will have as they saturate the media atmosphere? I know. The low information voters, the majority, will not vote for Obama and the Dems, that's for sure.

So, my question for you is: why are you perpetuating this RW meme?
