    Yes, when I heard that crack in his voice I lost it.
    I can almost forgive him for his overreaction after the first debate.

    I guess I'll see you at the victory party tomorrow. :)

      heard and powerful voice against the Republicans' racism in this election. That was so necessary and important.

      I had wondered about his comment on Romney's use of the word "Revenge" the past few days. But then it sank in and I realized that Romney had taken it completely out of context, as Obama had used it. Romney was delighted to be able to use this word as a racist motivator for his racist supporters who would assume that Obama had used the word in a racist way. Not so. Of course Republicans fear a black repayment for slavery because that's how they are. They would retaliate so they presume any other group would. Also, they know their own dark hearts.

      But Romney glommed onto the word as a little goldmine for his candidacy. He could suddenly contrast Obama's "revenge" with his own "love of country" by completely perverting the president's use of the word.

      Typical Romney. Typical do/say anything to get elected, even if it means pretending racism by the president and being racist yourself.

      I've been around watching elections since JFK.

      Romney is the WORST.
