Bye DU :-)

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Lucy Goosey (a host of the General Discussion forum).

DU got me through the post 2000 election era and the 2004 election. We were so blatantly robbed, and we saw it clearly. Then came 2008 and the best Democratic candidate for president was vilified. Not sure why, she could have governed to The Constitution, down to the dotted i's and crossed t's. Obama received six billion dollars to get elected, give or take a few, from mystery donors and he declined to adhere to election money reporting statutes. Yay, him. Now Mitt Romney, of all people, is within a grab of the White House. Really? Is this what we all came together for? I think not. I anticipate a DU tombstone, but I stood with Cindy Sheehan in Crawford TX, got voters to the polls in 2006 and was a delegate to the state convention for (then) Senator Clinton, so can't complain about my time here. It was a great place to be, in its glory years.

11. These types of threads fascinate me.

Out of curiosity, when you walk out of a movie you don't like, or a restaurant where the food has been less then favorable, do you tell everyone in the room you are leaving and why?

For the life of me, I just don't get "I'm leaving you all now" type threads.

You've been here for 8 frickin years and have well over ten thousand posts.

Just fucking go already.

Or stay.

But the fact that you actually think a whole lot of people really give a shit whether or not you didn't like the movie and your steak was cold amazes me.

Your OP makes me wonder who you voted for in 2008.

And why you post this less then a month before 2012's election. Hillary has been one of the best Secretary of State's we've every had.

When you leave us here on DU, how will you vote? Obama, Romney ... stay home?

seems quite silly for a REAL Hillary fan to cut and run at this point, seeming her election to continue the 8 years of President Obama's term and finish the republicantealibertarians forever.

Hillary was the best darned SOS we ever had. And may Eric Holder be put on the US Supreme Court, and may Janet Reno come back in the public sector soon too.

I supported President Obama over Hillary and I'm glad he won.

But I admire and respect Hillary Clinton very, very much.

There's no light between both of them.

And you'll notice that the Republicans are blaming both Hillary and the President for the tragedy in Libya. They are being blamed together.

Take a break. The DU is still a great place.

Sure, it can feel discouraging when you feel out of step with everyone in this wacky society. I know I do. But keep plugging away. Who knows? Maybe someday you will get to say "I told you so" to the rest of us. But we'll never know if give up.

62. The standing Commander in Chief should be winning by a landslide

It isn't happening. I think he'll most likely win, but he had a veto proof House and Senate in which he could have accomplished significant gains for the citizens of this country (not Wall
Street) and it didn't happen. And, it scares the sh** out of me to think that Romney is even considered credible as a POTUS candidate. This country isn't in better shape than when he was elected, and in some ways worse. Hopefully, SOS Clinton is called before a House or Senate sub committee to testify about the attacks in Libya on 9/11/12, maybe we'll get some straight answers.
