Just had an awful thought. Was reading a report about the coming "Fiscal Cliff" that will occur after the election when the "Bush Era Tax Cuts" are allowed to expire, and the mandated cuts forced by the Tea Party as a result of the debt ceiling fight will take effect.Every time Obama uses the line about taxing "millionaires and billionaires", do you think he silently thanks the Tea Party for electing a Republican House of Representatives that stopped him from doing so? If he had been able to raise those taxes, the harm to the economy would have already occurred, significantly harming his re-election chance. I know we in the Tea Party understand what is happening, but too many people believe the spin. There are people who still watch the network news, and believe what they hear is real news, versus liberal bias. Discouraging, especially since the ones I know live in Ohio, which is predicted to determine the next election.
Perception is reality, and the Democrats are masters of managing perception. I could not watch the DNC as it made me sick to hear the lies, and realize that many people believed them.
