You are so correct.
I am a registered Dem.
I voted for Obama - not Hilary - in the primary.
And then… after our primary …
I watch Hilary get smeared by viceous attack dogs ~~>** DEMOCRATIC LIBERAL** attack dogs - and even though I did not vote for Hilary in the primary - I was offended.
This foul and unfair treatment soured me toward the Obama camp.
I became officially an UNdecided American voter.
I watched BOTH conventions with great interest keeping an OPEN MIND.
UNdecided was I.
It seemed to me that Obama was being led by others in the Dem party.
He went from his fired up passion filled beginnings to a packaged product. I did not like this product very much.
I was not convinced this man could stand up to his own party power brokers - someone had neutered him!
He does not seem to be his own man - he’s being managed too carefully.
I don’t like being told what to do -
I was a vote ripe for the picking.
I felt nuthin’ - and considered sitting this one out - till Sarah gave her acceptance speech - then I felt fired up - I felt motivated to open my mind up to consider possibly voting REP this time – McCain is better with her by his side - I found Palin to be interesting and refreshing.
Then I read an editorial written by Gloria Steinem about how a vote for Palin is (basically) a vote for anti-feminism - What the hell? The same political machine that rolled over Hilary is doing the same thing again … :smack:
When the hell did feminism become synonymous with pro abortion?
Gloria was the tipping point - I am convinced to vote Rep this time.
I am a Dem voting Rep this time.
And I suspect I am not alone.
You can Thank Gloria if you care to.
