You've never seen fired up until you've seen a Gay Latino Woman in Labor.

That's liable to fire up the base

I think you're misidentifying who the base of the Democratic party is.

They don't care about job growth or crushing unemployment?

Not in a way that they'd be "fired up" over it. The base, to my mind, is African Americans, Latinos, Women, Gays, and Labor.

What I meant was "Pointing out that you're doing marginally better at job creation than a lackwit who presided over an economic bubble and 4% unemployment is probably not going to do much for the enthusiasm deficit among your core voting blocks"

Labor being one of them

Agreed that this election is gonna be about the economy, but as I understand things, it's pretty unfair. The federal government doesn't have much control over the economy, and the President even less than that, right? He can argue against wrongheaded contractionary policies, but his ability to create private-sector jobs seems pretty limited. Frustrating that the guy's performance evaluation is gonna depend largely on stuff that's out of his control.

Does anyone here even live in a state that matters? Maybe 'cocks, but FLA's going to be less important than the Midwest/Rust Belt this time around. Not jeb, because while it's not impossible that Romney will win WI, if he does, he'll already have run away with OH, MI, CO, FLA, VA. I think even PA would go red before WI. Same with Thermo: Obama could win NC, but if he does it'll be a close along-for-ride state. In a true Bush/Gore or Bush/Kerry scenario: I guess if pollo votes absentee in OH, it might matter under the closest of circumstances?


the news is certainly convinced that WI is a red state now, post-recall  





16% of voters for Walker were Obama supporters who voted for Walker because they believed that recalls shouldn't be used for political pursuits but rather for criminal charges (I thought). Also, isn't Barret extremely unpopular?



Also Walker outspent Barrett by an astounding amount, and also this:

Yeah, WI is not going to vote for Romney. If it does, then so with MI and VA and OH and FL and at that point, it doesn't matter.

That's because Obama's not a JOB CREATOR, the race of magical otherworldly beings that must not be spooked lest they stop secreting more private-sector jobs from their pores.

Agreed that it's unfair and illogical. Let's base it on his propensity to expand the national security apparatuses in evil, lethal ways instead

That may be his base, but he won NC because he energized the young vote. He won't energize them this time. The 2012 primary showed he pissed off a big swarth of black voters, Latinos view him as the lesser of two evils - not a strong motivator at the polls, women & gay voters will vote for him but as for labor, uh, NC ranks 50th in the US in unionization (51st if you count DC), there is no union culture here so that point is moot. He ain't gonna win NC.

you mean the Koch brothers outspent Barrett by an astounding amount, right

Dave, I think that it is less so that Barrett is extremely unpopular and more that he is really sort of just milquetoast. He is just there.
And Blucas I agree with you mostly, except I am still hell of scared that you're wrong--I was just trying to say that local media is attempting to tell us otherwise. Also I need to turn off Fox on Wednesdays IMMEDIATELY after So You Think You Can Dance.

Is it a little insane to anyone else that the right-wing media's latched on to the whole Fast and Furious thing (which was boneheaded, don't get me wrong) as the great injustice that ought to bring down Obama's presidency, but when the most prominent newspaper in the country ran a long-form piece detailing how he personally maintains an extrajudicial secret robot kill list, the reaction was outrage that the administration must've leaked it to make him look good, and demands for investigations into leaks?

Like, this is how you know that the GOP has gone off-the-rails and bought into its own bullshit. Any effective opposition party should be all over that, even if it requires hypocrisy! Even if they don't mind killing Muslims with little or no reason, it's still an illegal power grab! It's exactly the sort of thing they should be feigning outrage over!

It's not indentured servitude, it's a voluntary form of taxation! Except in this scenario you are paying taxes to hedge fund managers and venture capitalists.

Yeah, I like how he's all, "I have a free market solution!" then proposes using the IRS to collect venture capitalists' profits for them

3 minute epic movie trailer type video cutting between a blacksmith hammering out words like "LIFE" and "FREEDOM" and a lady going to a voting booth, with interstitial text talking about how Catholics need to vote on the issues that REALLY matter, not jobs and shit like that. Though I really think they should have gone for epic movie trailer voice guy instead of the text.

Oh and a comments section that's basically instagodwinned
