OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD QUICKLY. FORGIVE THE IMPERFECT SYNTAX.
Things SEEM to be coming into focus but we cannot stop working for the president's victory. WE MUST GET OUT THE VOTE. I still worry about Republican fixed machines. Armies of our lawyers are on the scene and I am sure we have our computer geniuses too. They CANNOT get away with the voter suppression Republicans have sickeningly done to subvert our democracy. WE ARE ON TO THOSE bastards (pardon the profanity) but think about what Republicans are trying to do--subvert the country. It makes you sickened if you love this country.
My prediction: Scott Brown is going down and he did it himself. POOR personal attacks that meant nothing in the face of people in economic trouble!! He looked shallow and of course he surely is. Compared to the brilliant Elizabeth Warren he looks like an utterly inferior teenager trying to get a date. The people of Massachusetts know the brilliance of Elizabeth Warren and are smarter than to make that mistake again! He's DONE! -- I hope. Still MUST work hard and VOTE VOTE VOTE!
As for the president: Several things are and have FAILED for Romneybot. No. 1 he is an UNLIKABLE, shallow and utterly EMPTY suit pathological liar and flip flopper candidate. NO ONE knows what the hell the guy stands for even in his own Republican base. He bold faced lied about the auto bailout that saved an industry and the industry told him that. The president is a VERY likable candidate by far.
2. The economic figures were actually good this month and more jobs added proving his policy is working (but he needs more of it see Stiglitz article here and below.)
3. Chris Christie most emphatically my hat goes off to this man whom I used to hate now I love -- the guy has a magnetism; look for him in 2016. I wish he were a Democrat!
4. The Obama ground game is excellent.
5. Very important October surprise SANDY!!! As horrible as this event was/is the president looks utterly presidential AND they are delivering. Democratic policies WORK! What a far cry from Bush. When the country is in trouble Democrats pull us out. Think FDR!
When the news reported the cries out of Staten Island it reminded me of Katrina. I got on the phone called the White House which was accessible at 7:00 pm. usually is not but they must have been open because of Sandy. I went on one of my tirades pleading with them to get the supplies to Staten Island there and fast. I said if we can supply Afghanistan we can supply Staten Island. I went on and on pleading NOT angrily but emotionally and said the president MUST NOT look like heckva job Brownie jerk. He must secure his presidency by getting the supplies to these people in the form of FEMA and the Red Cross.
My heart goes out to Staten Island. I said he said call and you will get a response in 15 minutes. The 15 minute rule now as he said was in effect. HE HAS BEEN STELLAR. Next day BAM -- supplies rolled in like it was the WWII Marshall plan reconstructing Europe. The people there who lost so much were crying "THANK YOU FEMA!!" Did my phone call (and online email) do it? OF COURSE NOT as I am sure there were hundreds but the point is we must try and I did. Presto -- something worked because we have a VERY capable president who is a REAL LEADER. From bin Laden to Sandy to the economy, using a Romneybot word, GOLLY, the president gets it done!
WE WHO SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT (and Elizabeth Warren too) MUST NEVER GIVE UP BECAUSE ONE NEVER KNOWS. WORK THE HARDEST we can and I think or at least I HOPE he WILL win.
