DU swings from giddyness to despair to euphoria. Forget the polls & work like Obama is 10 pts behind
3 days ago this group was about to collectively cut its wrist. 2 months ago this group had all but bought a new dress / suit for Obama's inauguration.

WORK! Don't become complacent.

2. I plead Guilty
I find a good beer helps and you DO feel better if you volunteer (even in a red state)

Nothing wrong with that.

4. If you're able, create your own morale...but DO SOMETHING! There are MILLIONS
of people out there waiting to hear from someone. Talk to 'em!!!

5. Nothing wrong with that but a few days ago I felt that some were giving up. Don't let a dip in the
polls get you down. WORK!

6. Yeah, after all, no matter what the polls say, Obama needs to overcome the vote-fraud gap.
And even 10% might be cutting that close. Figure that the GOP will try to steal the election in each and every precinct.

9. I agree with you except about one thing.
You said Figure that the GOP will try to steal the election in each and every precinct. butthe truth of the matter, I think, is that the opposite is true. Not only that but it is a new occurance, facilitated by the invention of computers and the Web, that allows for deeply targeted electoral fraud, and THAT makes it much MUCH harder to catch.

Let us not even go into the Congressional Democrats' absolute unwillingness to investigate it, to the point where THEY THEMSELVES killed the investigation into 4 or 5 races where Bushie Electoral Fraud was particularly odious, in Florida and Ohio 2006 - gosh what a coincidence.

Most significant and where the Bushie were caught th every red-handedest (only a little investigation would have been needed to bust the thing wide open, IMHO, not that we will ever know because the Dems killed the investigation before it began. :wtf:

FL-13 2006 jennings Buchanan

Google that, if you don;t know what I am speaking of.

In any case, computers not only allow insane levels of gerrymandering, unimaginable to the Foundin Fathers or even to people alive two decades ago, but with the same wealth of data can be used to know to pinpoint exactly the most vulnerable groups of voters to their trickery, schemes, and misues of good laws for disenfranchisement purposes solely.

Would that they were trying to perform wholesale machinations across the spectrum, because we'd have 'em then!

But between the Web, which allows Bushie Electoral Fraud to be performed from a cubicle in the basement of the RNC while the defrauder eats a jelly donut and scans cyber porn out of one eye...between THAT unpleasant fact that electoral fraud is now so much easier with the Bushies having been purposefully trying to make it easier for a decade or more, which have been wildly successful, and the computers which allows hyper-accurate targeting of electoral fraud necessity, it's a tough thing to catych even IF the Democarts seemed to be interested in doing so.

That's my 2 cents, anyway. It's all speculation, except the virtual certainty that SOMETHING is going on that is degradingthe quality of the American Election System, and that is as charitably as I can possibly put it.

8. A couple of things Dems shouldn't forget:
1. Don't ever be content with a Dem lead knowing what Republicans are willing do to or say;

2. 50 days is a LONG time for things to ebb and flow. How many DAYS has Sarah Palin been in the national spotlight?

3. Never assume that the tide will turn with MSM coverage. Until they are no longer owned by corporations, expect them to reflect corporate interests at the end of the day. If something is reported in Obama/Biden's favor, expect several comments against them.
