Former Ron Paul Aide: Boycott Democrats

Of all the sore loser ideas I have seen, this has to take the cake:


Former Ron Paul aide Eric Dondero says the only recourse to President Obama's re-election is "outright revolt" and is launching a "personal boycott" of Democrats.

He writes: "All family and friends, even close family and friends, who I know to be Democrats are hereby dead to me. I vow never to speak to them again for the rest of my life, or have any communications with them. They are in short, the enemies of liberty. They deserve nothing less than hatred and utter contempt."

As angry and bitter as I was in 2004, I never thought about refusing to speak to my Republican friends. That is just juvenile.

Disturbing tweet about OH early voting

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but just saw this tweet that indicates how important GOTV is in Ohio tomorrow:

OH EARLY VOTE: Data suggests a much narrower Dem early vote/enthusiasm advantage than in '08, all pointing to a photo finish (in Ohio)

This coming from David Wasserman, who seems to be non-partisan and was more upbeat about Obama's chances in Virginia based on early voting numbers.

The moment I had a feeling Obama was going to win

It was over the summer, when I saw Obama give the lifetime achievement award to Bob Dylan and they played "The Times They Are a Changin" in the background. Just the day before, I had rewatched the episode of West Wing where they played that song in the scene where the president gets reelected. I said to my dad at the time "I think this is a good sign."

Earlier tonight I listened to that song and I could just feel it that we are going to win tomorrow. I'll admit, the latest ABC/WashPost poll didn't hurt, but I can just feel it in my gut that we are going to win. I just wish I wasn't so far from the action this time...in 2008 I got to go to Obama's last rally in Manassas and it was so exciting, because we all knew he was going to win and the excitement was incredible.

Final Ohio Poll (U of Cincinatti): Obama 50, Romney 48.5

Still too close for comfort given my lack of trust in the GOP-controlled voting apparatus there, but at least we are at 50.

The Senate race is Brown 50.6, Mandel 46.8
