  •  Ok, right out of the gate ... (4+ / 0-)

    I'll go on record as stating I expected people to tell me I have no idea what I'm talking about.  Fine, go right on believing that if you want.  You haven't talked to my neighbors or my coworkers who have gotten the same propaganda.  It maybe a lie ( we all know it is) but they also know that if they repeat it enough and do as I described in the diary, use 'credible' ( for the people who won't research, which is much of the electorate) news sources for their lies, they chip at the President's support.

    But hey, what do I know, I'm just a near 60 something middle class blue collar white guy who doesn't ever hear what the folks I encounter every day who are against the President have to say.

    I condemn Mitt Romney for political opportunism in exercising his free speech rights to criticize America's leaders during a foreign crisis. Wow, I guess I just apologized for Mitt Romney being an ass.

      experiences - i agree with you totally.  i've seen the difference pieces of paper make.  in '72, i was the supply coordinator for the ny office of the mcgovern/shriver campaign.  those pieces of paper were gold!

      thanks for this diary - it gives us time to still change things!

        This comment from you is all that convinced me not to delete my diary and leave dKos alltogether.

        Time to change the narrative was all I was hoping for.

          pointing out that florida is turning toward romney - you were the first and sometimes people don't want to believe bad news.

          don't leave - your voice is too important to be silenced!  we NEED people unafraid to say the unpopular - and, for the record, i'm getting sick of the self-righteous abuse of the troll claims, too.

          enough - and it is time for the "trolls' group to go away.  i joined in the early days and am now looking to find a way to "unjoin".  i don't like the relentless attitude that causes some to erroneous label those with whom they disagree as "trolls" - it is offensive - and this site should do better than that!

    •  So how do we get an address list (1+ / 0-)

      How about a letter writing campaign - only positives.  Why we believe this president is the best option for the nation.
      It can be done.

      but this election doesn't come down to just what people you know say.

      I live in Dallas. There are only two yard signs in my neighborhood for Romney (one of them is the Republican precinct chair), but dozens of Obama yard signs.

      Guess what? That doesn't mean Texas is going to vote for Obama.

      Big picture.
