89. i think
what this post is saying is not necessarily that he would consider voting Republican, which would obviously not be in his interest. but the feeling of disappointment that leads to cynicism and ambivalence.

obama has taken a huge risk, assuming he can piss off his "base" to such a degree. i fear the consequences of taking that risk. more than just just risking losing the White House, but the cynicism and ambivalence it creates throughout the party, and the effect it will have on all Democratic candidates.

on a side note, i will say that something i find really, really disturbing and disgusting is when someone takes the time to write a post like this, which is obviously just expressing personal feelings, and how some respond with rude "cry me a river." i really wish that those people who do that would have a little respect for other Democrats. the degree of rudeness that i see from many obama "supporters" on this board, whenever someone states their feelings of disappointment, that kind of rudeness is not going to help only adds to the problem, by causing people to think that his "supporters" are not very nice people.
