Rip, I've been missing you! Haven't left yet, I've decided to stay at least until 2010. With the poll numbers sliding and independents waking up everywhere, I'm going to stick around for awhile.
I was handed a big dose of hope the other day. I had a great conversation with an Audi SUV driving former Obama supporting couple in the parking garage at Vail. They had an Obama sticker on the back window, so as I booted up sitting on the tailgait of my big ass American made truck, I ask them how they felt about the progress during the first couple of months. Totally expecting a bewildered "I don't know what your talking about." or maybe even some sort of nasty retort... they surprised me and said they hadn't got around to removing the sticker and regretted their vote!
The woman went on to say that several of their Highlands Ranch neighbors ignorantly voted Obama as a protest vote against the war. Now that the real lack of experience and common sense coupled with the vast socialist agenda is becoming evident, they say the Obama stickers are slowly but surely disapearing. They both said they felt lied too and mislead by the campaign! I love it! Reinvigorated my belief in the general wisdom of most people. Obama would have never won without the anti war people in this category. Like I've been saying, if the lower end "rich" realize how the left wing strategy's will really impact them, this BS won't last for long.
