23. I intentionally left my post vague

I expected you all to put some meat on the bones like you just did here. Suffice it to say that you and I are on the same page, and that generally I agree with everyone so far.

I'm still not sure what to make of it which is why I was vague. I don't know what to make of 2004, except to say that the man had screwed things up so badly that people turned around and said "fix it." I'm not sure John Kerry made the case either. Clearly his is not the model for opposing Swiftboat Liars.

And the only think I can make of 2010 is the economy and the fact that it was low turnout midterm election. I was taken aback by some of the alleged liberals' anti-Obama rhetoric and I'm pretty sure that this played a part in a bad outcome.

I believe that if Democrats turn out, we win and I believe this will be more true as the demographics continue to trend in our favor (assuming the Republicans can't escape their self imposed ideological straightjacket). If we turn out they can't steal the election, although I'm not sure of that.

And what if they do steal the election? What then?
