Watching the first of the Presidential debates, at the same time seeing my Facebook wall plastered with status updates from my conservative friends along the lines of "Obviously Romney/Ryan are right," thus the President isn't, coming from people who would gladly take George Bush back today if it were possible, rooting for their team because it's their team. No way on earth will you ever convince me that a single one of them has any idea what the President has done, what he will do and what he stands for. They don't care because he's on the other team.
I guarantee you that if I put the President's positions in front of them but put a picture of a man, preferably white, with a Republican label on him, they'd lap it up. How else can you explain them being for a guy, Romney, who stands for nothing except for everything when it's convenient depending upon who he's talking to at the moment? They blame the President for the very things his predecessor, that Bush guy again, did, while they stood back and did nothing but applaud. Many, many of the things the President has put forth and done were previously supported by Republicans, even originated with Republicans, before a Democrat decided to do some of them.
So I'll say again, if you switched the labels in front of these guys and somehow made them both unknown to conservatives, they'd pick the guy they don't want to pick.
POST DEBATE UPDATE: First, let me say that I'm very disappointed in the President's performance tonight. Not once did he really in some way, shape or form call Romney the liar that he is or take him to task for sounding like a Democrat tonight -- yet another reincarnation from the Supreme Flipflopper. Now he's for things the President and liberals are for and I can still see my conservative friends lapping it up. They truly are not paying attention. Color me scared that this is even possible.
