"Weary Democratic voters 'unimpressed' by both candidates" Reuters
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080507/pl_nm/usa_politics_...

So Mr. Stern, is that why the Democratic Primaries have had the biggest voter turn out in history? Is that why the loser of the Dem Primaries get more votes than the winners of the Republican? Unimpressed my ass!
Another ignorant, divisive article from the MSM!

1. Me--I'm "weary" of the Hillary nonsense...but I'm not the least bit "weary" about Barack!
Go figure. Is this another attempt to put down the Democratic candidates?

3. Myself and others I've spoke too started liking both candidates but not so much anymore
but we really don't want Bush to have 4 more years in spirit (McCain). I started out really linking the dem candidates and wanting change. In general now I'm more skeptical and cautious about both our candidates but am still energized for change from the current status quo.

6. No, Not At All
It's the press that has made the campaign what it is. They have their narrative - the white lady or the black guy - to push at the cost of the public good.

5. My point was not to bash
either candidate. In fact I think the turn out proves that both are impressive. My point is that this story is complete and utter BULLSHIT!!!

8. Given the length of our primary process, this is inevitable--even with our awesome candidates.

9. We Blow Off Their Exit Poll Results At Our Peril
In Clinton and Obama matchups against McCain, anywhere from a quarter to three in 10 Democrats said they wouldn't vote, or would support McCain.


If this remains true in November, then we lose by a landslide. How can we turn this around?

12. Linda Mrochinski is NOT IMPRESSED!!!!!!
That's what I took away from this stupid story.

Had I just read the headline, I would have assumed that there was real evidence showing that Democrats (who have been voting in record numbers this year) are not enthusiastic. This is pure, right-wing garbage.
