And Republicans believe Mitt Romney can win!
What this probably means is that if you think your candidate (or the candidate you're stuck with) can win, you're more apt to give them money and support to help them out. If you think your candidate is going to lose, then you'll keep that money in your pocket and wait around until the next election cycle.
At least that's my take. And we all know the candidate with the most money, usually wins.
What the veteran Democrat strategists want is for the USA voting population to believe that they don’t have to get out and vote, because Obama is destined to lose.
We conservatives must discern between what is true and the Democrats' propaganda. They have "planted" the story that Obama will lose so we will relax and stay home on Election Day.
This tells the story, why Bush was so bad at the end of his term…
Some people aren't aware of all of this. Don't just skim over this, please read it slowly and let it sink in.

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007…
the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.
The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:
January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
Remember the day… January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank [aka My-Boy-Lollipop] took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.
The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA
And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress
So when someone tries to blame Bush… REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007…THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!
Budgets do not come from the White House…they come from Congress - and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.
For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office.
At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.
And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is - "I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."
There is no way this will be widely publicized unless each of you SEND IT ON!
Billy, I have been telling my libtard friends for years about everything that you posted . The democrats drove our economy into the ground starting in January 2007. They alway shut up after I point that out because they know it is true! But, libs hate the truth since they can only win on lies.
SHERRY, if I may call you Sherry, I think you MAY be wrong about Drudge propelling Klein's book to No 1 on the NYTimes non fiction list. Klein also got a go on Hannity's program ... and that's pretty big time media representation. Personally, I find the Drudge site hard to decipher. It's like a three-ring circus with things going on in all corners. Hannity sort of filters it out for me. I appreciate his focus more than throwing everything against the wall and waiting to see what sticks. Know what I mean? Best always, John
