1. obama & his minions don't give respect to anyone
and that's what turns people off. a lack of respect. especially to blue collar workers. he can't be bothered you know. and he can't win without those blue collar workers who will not vote for him.

2. And that is the absolute truth but I do not respect them either. No reason to.
THey tell me I am a "spolied white B" on this board and I am supposed to support them? I think not.I was also told just today that I am a "privledged white woman" and Lucky to have the rights I have got.

Did you notice a thread yesterday or the day before where a couple of them were discussing their kids at Harvard? Who's spoiled?

3. That's a Great Column
Unfortunately it will be lost on the obnoxious parts of the net-roots.

4. Yes, I have been drawn into a back & forth
in GDP. My bad. Must. Stay. Out. Of. There.

Apparently I am "threatening" because I simply pointed out that "You catch more flies with honey than vinegar." But to them the time for honey is past and now it's time for "blunt, honest talk."

"Keep digging."

"Keep threatening."

"I'm not the one threatening. I'm not the one pushing other voters around."

They don't fucking get it, do they?

7. Fantastic article
Thanks for posting this. I hope that influential people read this and take it to heart. This article hits the nail on the head about how I've felt about the Obama campaign.

I often used to wonder which of sexism or racism is the worse to be on the receiving end of. After this campaign, I know. It's definitely sexism. Combine sexism with agism and it's a killer.
