For the first time in modern American history, the incumbent (that's us) will get outspent in a re-election campaign -- by some estimates as much as 3-to-1.What is it that the voice mail says? "We're sorry....."
Over the last 10 days of this month alone, GOP outside groups will spend $20 million attacking President Obama on TV.
Thank you for thinking of me. I've voted in every election I could since I was 21 years old. That's a LONG TIME. I'm not only a voter but also an active campaigner. I regret that my annual income barely scrapes in at five figures and that my savings balance is, um, hoo.....is that a MINUS figure? Guess so. What that means is my ability to fork over any more $3 contributions is at an all-time low! Live with it. I'm wondering if there aren't any billionaire Democrats? Can't they kick in a little more?
Sigh. The only thing I can see is for us pore lefties to STOP WATCHING TV. Period. Don't watch those freakin ads!! Turn the toob off until the next cycle of whatever it is that cycles in an election year. BITE THE BULLET. Sign up for Netflix and watch the streaming movies and TV shows a day or a week later.
And for sure, you can listen to tapes or CDs on the radio. No need to tune in for all the idiotic ads.
Just do it. We don't have to spend our hard-earned nickels and dimes to enrich some TV or radio station owner!! Bleah.
