I usually enjoy your posts , Foxfyre, but that is a lot of bunk.
This election isthe MAINLY influenced by the Economy which is tied to BUSH/McCain. Thousands have lost a great deal of money in their accounts and 401K's. Voters are angry and looking for someone to blame. I am sure that yojust rying u are learned enough to know that presidents cannot do very much about the economy except elect a chairman of the FRC and do some bully pulpit work on the side.
McCain did not, in any way cause the economy to tank , but the American people, mainly dimwitted, who know the name of the winner of the latest American Idol contest but cannot tell you the name of their Representative in Congress are concerned with their pocket book and are lashing out.
Gergen is a sly old snake., He is just calling some people racists hoping that those on the borderline will say I am not and because of the economy I will hold my nose and vote for Obama anyway.
But, You know that there will be 40 or 45r Million people who will be enraged that this inexperienced FAR LEFT WING LIBERAL has become president. I don't know about you but my friends and I will do everything we possibly can to stand in the way of his radical proposals.
