Subject: RE: BS: Should Obama Run in '12???
Well, Genie, I'd love to hold the line... Reality is that the progressives have been clobbered by the Supreme Court, first with Bush v. Gore and now with Citizens United... It is very disheartening and the worst thing about it is that the folks who are voting these people into office are clueless that they are voting against their own interests but by the time they find out it will be too late...

Our country is screwed...

The rich are corralling wealth at an astounding rate and the rest are left scamblin' for crumbs including the dumbasses who will one day wake up and ask, "What the Hell have we done..."

That is why I like the idea of Obama not running again in '12... That would give him instant credibility and if he'd take that and show a little spine he could force the Repubs hand... Maybe in doing that the dumbasses would wake the heck up...

One troubling aspect has to do with messaging... Too much is made about Obama not being able to deliver the message but that isn't the situation as much as the right wing controls the microphone and Karl Rove is still running anti-Dem ads even after the election and with Citizens money out there the Repubs can flood the airwaves with negative ads...

Like I said, the Supremes have ruined our country...
