That's not necessarily my point.

I'm not surprised Kerry got that level of support. While he, in personality, was an obvious loser, Bush had a ton of negative sentiment. You probably could've had a sea otter run against him and get a sizable amount of votes.

Obama isn't THAT disliked though, and Romney just reeks of loser, of runner up, of an out of touch, past his prime politician who's just being given a courtesy nod before he's shifted aside in favor of someone better.

I love how silly the pictures released by the Obama camp today of him playing basketball are. It is so clearly a political photo-op meant to show the president as a laid back, regular guy who is unflappable even on election day. At the same time, it is so effin silly because it is so clearly a photo-op. After all, if you are gong to sped the day playing basketball are you really going to do it in a pair of slacks, a button up shirt and oxford shoes?

And what regular guy would be playing basketball while waiting to see if they've won a Presidential Election.

A 10 minute video of him pacing nervously in his living room would be a much better portrayal of the common man.

He did the same thing last time. Was playing basketball. Frankly i dont care what he does, and a picture of him pacing nervously would look just as much like a photo-op imo. Some people would rather occupy their mind rather than pace uselessly.

I don't doubt that he likes playing basketball and does it to reduce stress. I am saying that the idea of releasing a picture of a man in slacks and oxfords shooting at a basket with Scottie Pippen defending him is obviously staged. It is patronizing that his handlers think that the American people are so oblivious that they would see that and say, "Y'know what? I was gonna stay home today, but by God, I will vote for Obama!"

They should want him to win.

If he does, they'll get to vote for Marco Rubio in 4 years.

I think most Cubans hate him too. Cubans are very hateful people.

I'm not angry. Just pointing out the absurdity of our system/electoral process.

I'm not. There are highly paid, Ivy League graduates who work the campaign who sit around and consider this. That is the sad part.

No, I actually understand where Matt's coming from.

The dumb thing is, like 90% of Americans actually fall for that BS.

I understand where he's coming from as well, it just seems like such a random thing to harp on.

Matt harps on everything.

I think his mind work's differently than other people in that way. I've yelled at him for it.

Last I heard, Florida was neck and neck but only 5% reporting.


Just out of curiosity, what news channels is everyone listening to/watching/streaming?
