Obama kicked butt in fund raising, organization and message. You are right about one thing, though, the cracks [in the Republican base] are everywhere. But by all means cling to the hard-right ideology and push the Republican Party to run more extremists like Palin. Meanwhile, liberals will be organizing libs and cons alike to chip in rebuilding infrastructure, mending broken ties with the rest of the world and investing in mutual responsibility.
The New Deal was destroyed by vulgar corporate Marxists posing as conservatives, you can stop kidding yourself about that right now. Obama ran on many New Deal proposals, he made sense of their necessity. McCain made the election a very clear choice between a tax and spend, big gubmint liberal and a tax cutting, small gubmint Reaganite. McCain had his butt handed to him.
And by the way, the difference between 47% and 53% becoming a tie would require a six point swing. No wonder you are so wrong about so much, you don't even understand basic addition and subtraction. Must be that No Child Left Behind school of math.”
