My wife made me canvas for Obama; here's what I learned (Henpecked worm finds HOPE!)
Christian Science Monitor ^ | 11-3-08 | Jonathan Curley (henpecked worm)

Posted on 11/02/2008 2:41:42 PM PST by SeafoodGumbo

There has been a lot of speculation that Barack Obama might win the election due to his better "ground game" and superior campaign organization.

I had the chance to view that organization up close this month when I canvassed for him. I'm not sure I learned much about his chances, but I learned a lot about myself and about this election.

Ask not what you can do to help yourself. Ask what your government can do for you instead.

His ground game is paying everyone 100 bucks a day to support him. My dog could win this race with $600,000,000.

Hmmmmm, kind of sounds like what one would have found if one had canvassed for Adolph Hitler in Germany. Unfortunately, the Germans got change, and lots of it. So, be careful of what you hope for when it comes to change. There is good change, and there is bad change.

Obama can't even get his base together, yet he expects us to believe he'll get thousands of people who've never voted before? Sure. SNORT!>

Another milquetoast moderate mishy mash who “just wants some HOPE”.

It’s not about bringing socialism to this country, it’s about HOPE and CHANGE!

I love these evidence-free wishy washy endorsements of Obama that tell us it’s not about issues (how convenient for Obama), rather it’s about “temperment”, or “hope”, or “change”.

For a ‘swing voter’, he sure did feel pretty generous to a Dem in 2007:

Of course, it’s completely normal practice for ‘swing voters’ who ‘decide’ while canvassing for a candidate to drop a grand donating to a candidate.

He’s not going to get a bigger tax cut from obama. Firstly, ppl who are leftists are big on increasing tax on EVERYTHINGN, no matter what they say on the campaign trail. Eventually when they can, they’ll increase it, its part of the ideology.

2nd, Bush tax cut will expire and democrats will not make it pernament, so everyone’s tax will increase even more

Barf.

Those hopey-eyed people need to realized America has cared about them along. But its never about one’s self, its about all of us and doing your part to better your life which in the end helps everyone. Happiness comes from within, it’s not delivered by a politician.

Casper Milquetoast thinks that hope is the most important issue in this election ?!? I’m sure it’s pretty easy for wifey to lead this guy around by the bits, since he doesn’t seem to be the sharpest tool in the shed.

Maybe he’s the same guy who supports RINOs and socialists:

http://www.campaignmoney.com/political/contributions/jonathan-curley.asp?cycle=04

Funny, they’re both in the same line of work with the same name.

So, maybe he does dual citizenship between NC and WA. Or maybe he’s just FOS all around.

This made me want to puke.

It’s not about taxes (read: limited government, the welfare state, socialism). It’s not about foreign policy (our lives, our treasure, the fate of the world). It’s about feelin’ gooooood.

Although it’s a little late in life, this dude needs to grow up.

He’s not the only one. Five years ago my brother was a staunch conservative. Then he married a lovely lady who works for some Dem judge. She now has him completely and totally whipped and there is a big Obama sign in their front yard. He’s turned into a total liberal. He even listens to NPR and has a ballet subscription. I feel so sorry for him, but he doesn’t even realize that he’s had his testicles removed and put in a lockbox.

Let me make it clear: I'm pretty conservative. I grew up in the suburbs. I voted for George H.W. Bush twice, and his son once. I was disappointed when Bill Clinton won, and disappointed he couldn't run again.

That's right, folks: I'm a brainless dweeb with no principles. And I'm voting for 0bama. Because he promises change. And gives hope. I have no clue regarding change to what, nor hope for what. But that doesn't matter to brainless dweebs.

“My wife made me canvas for 0bama”

Now, seriously, are there that many men out there who let their wives treat them like this?

Are we that screwed as men in this country?

Testosterone has been banned from TV, MSM and Hollyweird movies for the most part, I know. Hairy chests are a gross thing to the wax-a-day, jet-set metro-boys n’ girls, I know. A man with character, integrity and, God-forbid, a uncompromising opinion is something fround upon as rigid, un-PC and generally distatesful in the public square, I know.

But have real men disappeared from the real world?

What’s up?
