It looks like it will be an 2012 electoral landslide for the President.
Yeah, but even the way the "liberal media" was reporting it seemed to suggest it had some traction. I guess people aren't necessarily as stupid as I tend to think.
And they don't seem to be swayed by all the Citizens United based funding either. Maybe we've reached a threshold of voter enlightenment in this country.
