fast enough so they are contemplating staying home in November to express displeasure with him.
Of course when they stayed home in 2010 for the same reasons they gave the GOP the House but
no matter ~ they seem to be willing to give them the Senate, too. Spoiled, rotten brats!
Nonetheless, having said that, I want them to vote! I want all Democrats to get out and Vote in
November and vote these anti-U.S. GOP-ERS out of all position of power they hold. 
So let's take a trip down memory lane and remember why we ~ once ~ thought POTUS was a better
choice than a GOP-ER. Read some background on his 2004 Democratic Convention Speech. Read

Now that you've refreshed your memory understand this: POTUS favorable numbers impact the vote
across the board. Focus on the positive and help drive those numbers up! 
Hurt feelings, real or imagined, are no reason to abdicate responsibility for our nation...

If there’s an Arab American family being rounded up without benefit of an attorney or due process, that threatens my civil liberties. ...
