Emotionally, how are you doing with the fallout from Obama's poor debate performance now?
Before the debate, I was checking the polls several times a day and reading all the commentary. I was feeling good about the possibility of an Obama victory. Since a few days after the debate, when Romney made up all the ground, I’ve been despondent and unable to look at the polls any more.
I’m trying to prepare myself for the disaster of a Romney presidency. For a day after election day that could be worse than Reagan or Bush. For a continuation of the slow erosion of our rights; the start of a war in Iran; the loss of universal health insurance; an uptick in inflation and an increase in the poverty rate; and a rapid increase in the rate at which the rich get richer while the rest of us stagnate, or lose more of what we have.
I’m not doing well. How about you? Even you Romney supporters who must be walking on sunshine about now. All I can say is if he wins, don’t say you weren’t warned.
