233. Remember those "hate big government" republicans...

The guys who live out on a ranch... or in small towns that do not want the feds in their lives... the libertarians and local militia types. The folks who have grown up and for their whole lives they've seen the federal government as a destructive force imposed on their communities.

Republicans got a lot of votes by saying dems want to take your guns or saying the dems that let wal*mart put your dad's hardware store out of business, now want to give his minimum wage wal*job to an illegal immigrant... they've been screwed over and lied to for 3 decades by dems and repubs who forget them as soon as they get their votes.

These folks want change too... Obama can see it.

Hillary and McSame may assume rural folks are stupid and will obey her and feel insulted because she says they should feel insulted, but Obama knows these folks, like so many other americans, are sick of the same old shell game in DC. They want change, they want the old guard out.

I keep hearing from friends in PA who are saying over and over, at least he's not them... he's something different.
