    of democrats to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    In six months, we will no doubt be sitting around here reading the petulant comments of thousands of posters vowing never EVER to vote for Obama because of some issue that defines the election for them. Every one of them willing to throw the country to wives in the name of ideological purity.

    I'm sure that right now, Karl Rove is prepping the "liberal" third party candidate designed to sap votes from Obama, and the "Centrist" libertarian that is not the loony Ron Paul to draw "independent" votes.

    Republicans are planning every corrupt and illegal action they can take to steal the election. Democrats are sitting around doing nothing and will spend the years after the failed election talking about what they SHOULD have done.

    plus ça change...

      not wives, but still, can't agree with it if you meant wives.

      Yes, Republicans will try to steal the election.   That is why we, the active, politically astute folks with our eyes and ears open have to put aside what Obama isn't as far as being sufficiently and boldly progressive, and focus on the isn'ts that really matter.   He isn't Santorum or Romney.  There isn't a viable third party in this election.   We have a choice, and if people don't think these choices aren't stark enough to justify a vote,  then we will all suffer under the Republican rule of 2013.
